    I have a Linksys E1000 router, and I haven't really messed with anything in a while, so I figured I would try flashing it with DD-WRT. Problem is, when I go here and type Linksys E1000, I see results for v1.0 and v2.0, but nothing for v2.1, which is what I have. Does anyone have any experience with messing with an E1000 v2.1? I feel half tempted to just try flashing it with the 2.0 firmware, but that's probably a very bad idea and I really don't have the cash to spend on a new router.

    Got the file, will read through the thread and try to flash tomorrow. If they made an official build, I wonder why it's not on their main page along with the 1.0 and 2.0...?

    I don't need any advanced features, just looking for a slimmer, less clunky firmware I guess. I figure DD-WRT might give better performance than the stock firmware.

    Alright, flashed a few hours ago and all looks good. I can even play with my wireless transmitter power level... too bad I don't have any wireless devices, or a dwelling large enough for that to matter if I did. ;/
