Flashing instructions for the E2000

1) Disconnect all cables and wireless clients.

2) Do a 30/30/30 reset on router

3) Connect 1 Lan cable to pc doing the flash.

4) Log into Web Interface and flash the firmware

5) Wait 5 minutes until WAN light turns on.

6) Power cycle by unplugging E2000 for 30 secs.

7) Plug E2000 back in and wait about 5 minutes until it finishes booting.

8 ) Do a 30/30/30 reset on router.

9) Wait 3 minutes and log into web interface.

As of July 2010 you can only use the trailed builds with the e2000 name in it for initial flashing and nothing else, using other bin's without the e2000 name in it for initial flashing may result in a bricked unit! After you have dd-wrt installed to your unit, you can then use the e2k-e3k.bin's for upgrading to newer builds.

DD-WRT E2000 Build information

The latest builds for this unit can be currently found in the FTP. Support was added in 14826 and on.

Eko K2.6 NEWD-2 Builds

Brainslayer added E2000 Support from 14929 and on and builds are to be found in the broadcom_K26 folder of his build branch.

Also it has been asked about the builds with e2k-e3k name in them, these builds are for if you already have those units flashed with dd-wrt, you can simply use one of those builds to upgrade, but the initial flash should always be done with the trailed build (build with the unit only name in it) linked above.

Some useful tips

I have noticed with these style of linksys units, cooling can be very important to its performance, thus I have done a nice easy mod that will allow air flow for under the unit. Check this post for details. -buddee

After further study, I have also found that since the E2000 has an EIRP rating of 17dBm it is best to run these units at a TxPower setting 50mW instead of the dd-wrt default 71mW. 50mW = 17dBm Which can be adjusted in the webgui under the tabs Wireless > Advanced Settings enter 50 in the Tx Power entry. This should make for less Tx/Rx Errors and help the unit run cooler.

VLANs Support

It is also known for the E2000 to support VLANs. Please refer to these links for further info.
