-In the past there have been some reported problems with the 2.6 kernel versions but these appear to be resolved. Although Attitude Adjustment 12.09-rc1 does appear to run on this router it is extremely slow. A better choice would be Backfire 10.03.1 ​which provides a more acceptable level of performance. In either ​case the generic brcm47xx image should be used. The filename for that image will be something like openwrt-brcm47xx-squashfs.trx+If the device has been installed with OpenWrt in the past, it is possible that (somehow) the tftp server address is set to 192.168.1.1 (mine was)

 +Additionally,​ trying to go into recovery mode presents you with a router that will not have networking
 +see [[https://​dev.openwrt.org/​ticket/​7502]]
 +
 +And, Finally, trunk builds as of 19 May 2013 (r36676) will cause OOM if you enable wireless using either the open or proprietary drivers.
 +No bug filed yet.
