Netgear R8000P aka X6S

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the newly released Netgear R8000P (aka X6s) has the same chipset as the R8000 (X6). I can't find any information on it and wanted to re-flash my X6S to an opensource firmware build. If not, any idea when a ddwrt build for teh X6S will be available??

Thanks in advance,

//NH

Not Seeing any information on this. I to have a R7900P. What is the status on this. Do other firmware versions work with it, and that is why we dont see any commentary. Or is this router not OpenSource like the brochures that sold it. It says on them directly that OpenSource from MyOpenRouter is workable on this router.

Has anyone got any idea about this? I have just bought an R8000P (X6S) and would like to know whether I can flash it with Advanced Tomato, which only seems to have firmware for the older R8000 (X6) router...

I'm asking as well! Have an X6S (R8000P) and want to know if I can use the 8000 firmware or if a "P" version has to be developed. :)

I really want to know this as well. I hope for a future DD-WRT with OpenVPN client mode. Hopefully someone that's know more will write in this thread. I ordered this router today. So I'm very excited about this.

The processor will be perfect for running OpenVPN at high speeds.

I'm holding my fingers crossed here. It's time to unleash the inner beauty of this beast. The only way to do that would be awesome DD-WRT on it!!!!

I thought the R8000 and r8000p was the same thing just more feaures on the P. I wouldve settled for the the R8000 if i knew there was no upgrade for this router.
