**Caveats** **Caveats**
-  * Only the WNIC contained in the SoC works at this time with the proprietary Broadcom drivers +If you are building your own from buildroot, be aware that: 
-  * **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. 
-  * **DO NOT** use any image that has the ohci usb module built in. You will need to patch and build your own image.+  * 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.
