dealslinksys e3000-rm 802.11a/b/g/n 2.4/5ghz dual band…


This looks like a good deal but I have this router and would not trust a re-certified. Linksys has a horrible 90 day warranty and then they charge you $60 to fix it. The 5GHz mode has known problems and I'm pretty sure it's due to the firmware which is never updated because they no longer support this model. I ended up flashing it with DD-WRT after the 5GHz mode started having trouble, then it stopped broadcasting all makes a decent repeater but that's about it...


I bought one of these refurbished by Linksys close to a year ago. I immediately flashed DD-WRT since that was my plan from the start.

It has performed wdll for me. I can get 50Mbps download & 5Mbps upload over wireless, as long as it's set up on the same floor as my desktop.


I'll have to do that to the router when I have some free time.

Any tips for flashing it to DD-WRT?
