This page is for Linksys E3000

The work is definitely in progress as of June 2010 (read thread first):

  • Use only e3000 specific firmware (with e3000) in the name, minimum 14584 Eko build. For example dd-wrt.v24-14584_NEWD-2_K2.6_big-e3000.bin
  • Flash straight to the big build using Cisco-Linksys web interface.
  • After successful upgrade message comes up, give it extra 2-3 minutes to complete flashing.
  • You may need to clear your browser cache after flashing to see dd-wrt's web interface
  • Some people have been having heat issues. Razing the router off the ground helped.

Updated installation instructions for the E3000

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 E3000 for 30 secs.

7) Plug E3000 back in and wait about 5 minutes until it finsihes booting.

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

9) Wait 3 minutes and log into web interface.

As of now, which is Jul 2010, you can only use the trailed builds for flashing and running, do not use other .bin's for this or you may brick your unit!

DD-WRT E3000 Build information

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

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.
