Firmware recommendations

Hi guys,

I have a netgear r8000, can anyone recommend the best firmware for this model, I am currently on latest stock but have been looking at dd-wrt and openwrt. The router is mainly used for streaming.

I have tried Tomato but I

I have tried Tomato but I could not get decent (or even average) wifi speeds and the Ethernet connection kept reverting to 100mb's so I swithced to DD-WRT and It was better for speed but would spontaniously reboot,  sad to say the best results were the Stock Firmware althoogh I miss Tomato the most.
