 +Flashing from the Linksys firmware is unsuccessful using openwrt-e2000_v1-squashfs.bin with most browsers. ​ It gets to about 85-90% and then just reports that it failed, then reboots back into the Linksys firmware. However Internet Explorer doesn'​t have this issue, it's at least possible to flash OpenWRT onto an E2000 running version 1.0.04 (build 07) of the Linksys firmware using IE 11, and probably other versions. 
 +Unfortunately I have also been unsuccessful trying to use the bootloader'​s tftp server trying to "put openwrt-e2000_v1-squashfs.bin"​. ​ The tftp client just keeps trying until gets an "​Invalid Password"​ error from the Linksys firmware (i.e. the tftp server in the bootloader is missed and it's fully booted and it's the tftp server in firmware that is producing that error). ​ There are hints on the generic.flashing.tftp page about needing to change the name of the file being put but I was unsuccessful finding a name that would work either.

-  * **Use At Your Own Risk**+  ​All three wifi drivers work on the E2000, but only the brcmsmac and proprietary ​broadcom-wl ​drivers ​support 11n. b43 only supports up to 11g. 
 +  * The bgmac is the only ethernet driver that works on the E2000, but having the tg3 and b44 will not conflict with bgmac. 
 +  ​The E2000 does have internal USB controller, but there is no port. Beware of building a firmware with both the ohci and uhci or ehci: I have run into lock ups in this case, though it may no longer be an issue.
