Kong or DD-WRT firmware for newbee in order to use NordVPN on a R8500

Hi

 

I'm french and totaly newbee on that stuff. I gave a try on my old R6300 and I succeed put inside DD-WRT. So I understand how to read threads and put a new firmware in a router. ;-)

 

But, I'm totaly lost on different versions of firmwares.

Could somebody help me finding a stable firmware for my new R8500 ? I would much appreciate avoid to brick it, as I'm affraid to unbrick it in case of issues.

It's very important to me to be able to use OpenVPN and 2.4 and 5Ghz WiFi and no loose speed in ADSL or WIFI.

 

Regards

 

Philippe
