 +===== Status =====
 +This device is supported in backfire 10.03 when using the brcm-2.4 branch and the proprietary wl-mimo broadcom wireless driver.
 +It also works using the brcm47xx branch and the open source b43 driver.
 +
 +**Attitude Adjustment (12.09) with 802.11g support:** First download the [[http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​attitude_adjustment/​12.09/​brcm47xx/​generic/​openwrt-brcm47xx-squashfs.trx|openwrt-brcm47xx-squashfs.trx]] image. If your router will be offline while you're configuring it (e.g. if the computer you're configuring from is not co-located with your source of internet) download the associated [[http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​attitude_adjustment/​12.09/​brcm47xx/​generic/​packages/​kmod-b43_3.3.8%2b2012-09-07-3_brcm47xx.ipk|kmod-b43]] and [[http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​attitude_adjustment/​12.09/​brcm47xx/​generic/​packages/​kmod-cfg80211_3.3.8%2b2012-09-07-3_brcm47xx.ipk|kmod-cfg80211]] packages for offline installation. Flash the image using OpenWrt'​s web interface, [[toh/​asus/​wl500gd#​oem.installation.using.the.tftp.method|tftp]],​ or the Asus firmware update utility. If the router is connected to the internet, install the two mentioned packages through the router'​s web interface (System -> Software); otherwise manually install packages by sending them to the router'​s "/​tmp"​ folder using scp then ssh over and install them using "opkg install file.ipk"​. Once the packages are shown as installed under the web interface (System -> Software), reboot the router, and enable wireless networking via the web interface (Network -> Wifi).
 +
 +As of Attitude Adjustment 12.09, 802.11n is working. ​ For installation,​ refer to [[doc/​hardware/​soc/​soc.broadcom.bcm47xx#​wifi.drivers|the bcm47xx platform'​s page]]
