-**Cisco-Linksys EA4500** 
  
-As of this moment, there is no official or otherwise support for OpenWRT for these devices. It is a work in progress. 
- 
-Most information on this page is derived from Andrew Brampton, Dan Walters, and Randy C. Will.

-**Hardware** 
- 
-Here is a nice page for how to open the device and what is inside. There appears to be JTAG/​Serial,​ but requires a header to be soldered.

- 
-**Installation** 
- 
-Progress is being made to install OpenWRT on these devices. Currently, research has only yielded a basic package installation procedure using a USB thumbdrive. (See above links) 
- 
-The limitation appears to be the Marvell based system. The good news is, all drivers that run on these devices have GPL versions and should work. Linksys even provides, when asked, the source and development tools used to create the kernel. Nice. 
- 
-**Currently,​ the following devices all use similar procedures to install SSH:** 
-| EA3500 | 
-| E4200v2 | (not E4200v1, although OpenWRT is supported.) 
-| EA4500 | 
- 
-These devices are very similar. 
- 
-Most of the information on this page comes from EA3500 and E4200v2 research. Notes will be made where EA4500 specific information is important. 
- 
- 
-Here you can see the research done to discover the package handling mechanism in the E4200v2
