I just have, thanks for the tip.

One thing I made wrong, it's R6300, not WNDR6300. I assumed they continued
the naming scheme.

Apps? I've only seen some youtube vidoes but I don't think it does. It has
the genie app which is a smart phone parental control app to configure the
settings on the router, not much else I think. If that's what you meant.

The 6200 has 16MB, 6300 has 128, I think this is because it's for miniDLNA
to store the SQLite database.
My 1TB disk after indexing get the database to grow to 90MB -- and then
crashes of course... on WNDR3800 firmware.

 My question was more around feasibility as in WNDR4000 is not suitable as
opposed to WNDR3800, what about R6300?
I've asked this now to openwrt, maybe they can research that.

BTW. R6300 is 179 or 199 USD.

About the other thing, maybe we could set up kickstarter or some other fund
gathering scheme.
Worth a try.

I wish things get better with you soon, even at expense of your tremendous
volunteer work.
