I have been staring at my Linksys wrt1900ac for years now. Don't get me wrong, it works quite well, I am not a gamer.
I do like to fiddle around with stuff at times. I have a brand new Netgear something or other still in the plastic should I mess up so I don't mind taking a chance.
Have any of out members had any experience flashing a router, with Open WRT and this model would be ideal although I would love to hear more about this project. I may proceed soon or not, trying to make up my mind. If I brick the Linksys, oh well time to recycle it.
Thanks for any input.

I still have old workhorse WRT54G v8.2, and flashed it with DD-WRT and all worked fine. But not being a propeller-headed IT geek, I couldn't tell you much more, except there were now choices for a lot of settings. I recall you went to the DD-WRT site and it listed routers it works on.

Oh wow. That brings back the good old WEP days. For those of you who know, that was fun.

Highly recommended to flash it, make sure which model you have exaclty. As i see there are 2 versions of wrt1900ac and 2 versions of wrt1900acs.

After you figure out which version you have just head to https://firmware-selector.openwrt.org/ and get the factory image.

Installation and recovery instructions can be found on your model's device page. For wrt1900ac is https://openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt1900ac

I suggest you go with the Current stable series 19.07 and wait 1-2 days, cause a new version just released (19.07.8), before flashing.

I confess I still don't have the balls to flash my router. I have like 20+ connected devices and to have to reconfigure doesn't appeal to me right now.

I like WRT54G routers. You can get a few with shodan and using default password you can remotely change the ssid or read the internet connection username and password.

Do you want to backup your windows files? Here is a good backup tool which can backup virtual machines and files and database. It has 60-day full featured trial.

I am really interested why you think it's appropriate to spam this forum with a commercial product? Quite honestly this type of product is typically bundled with some other software or other cloud based services. Locally stored files are last decade and all the extortionware has pretty much accelerated that movement.
But anyway thanks for spamming our forum.
