Simply you cannot install Plex on R7000, both stock and 3rd party firmware.
- Modem Draytek Vigor 130
- Firewall/Router pfSense 2.3.1 (Supermicro A1SRi-2558)
- AP Netgear R7000 (Stock FW)
- Switch Cisco SG350-10
- HTPC Intel NUC5i3RYH
- NAS Synology DS1515+(5x5TB)
- NAS Synology DS213+ (2x3TB)

Re: Plex Media Server on R7000

You use it w/ Plex by building a Plex Media Server, and then having a client device that can stream from the Plex. The R7000 is simply the network switch allowing the 2 to talk to each other.

The R7000 won't run PMS itself. Plex needs to transcode a lot for a smooth experience and a router just doesn't have the horsepower for that sort of work.
