R7450 DD-WRT firmware download?

Hi, just got an R7450 router, and am looking for the location to download the DD-WRT firmware for it. Anyone know where to go for that?

Ask on the DD-WRT forum. This forum is only for support of stock NETGEAR firmware

Routing: NETGEAR R7800 - Voxel Firmware 1.0.2.88SF & Kamoj addon
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)
Desktop: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Server: Intel Core i7-7700K - NAS: Intel Pentium G4400 - Cruncher: Intel Core i5-7400

The official download site is here. I do not see Netgear R7450 listed. Site I have given you lists different years. Select year then open it and then you will see dated folder to open for supported devices. Did you research this prior to purchase. I suspect not. I know for sure that the r7000 and r7800 are supported. DD-WRT does not support all routers. If you find something on another site, I would be very suspicious of the firmware. 

ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas

 

Keep in mind this is a Netgear forum and you will not get any support for 3rd party firmware.

It's actually a friend's router, and I'm helping him to see if we can prep it to install VPN on it. No biggie if we can't.

Er, Google? Bing?

Just another user.

I doubt you will find it anywhere. Just did a simple google and came up empty. 

If you did happen to find somewhere other then the official DD-WRT download site, I would be very suspicious that it might have something you do not want baked into it. 

Probably need to just move on to something different. 

See my note above.
