ExpressVPN on Nighthawk R6900 Wi-Fi Router

ExpressVPN offers firmware for the following Netgear routers:

Netgear R6300v2

Netgear R6700v3

Netgear Nighthawk R7000

Netgear Nighthawk R7000P

I would like to install the firmware on my Nighthawk R6900. I believe that the R6900 firmware is functionally equivalent to the R7000, however would like to have more certainty of that before I attempt it.

I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,

Windywave

Re: ExpressVPN on Nighthawk R6900 Wi-Fi Router

installing 3rd party firmware to a router that isn't the same is a good way to brick your device. 

and you'd find more info on the expressvpn site for help installing their firmware to a stock router.

you're not going to find help on the official forums for installing 3rd party firmware
