I have the Netgear EVG2000 wireless router with Broadcom chipset. It was supplied with the ISP. I was looking for a way to flash some custom Linux firmware on it and LEDE/OpenWRT project seems to be the only one that has something for this router. But being a Broadcom based router it has a number of issues, or so I read.
What is the current support status on this one? Is it fully supported yet? I read that there is an issue of recognizing the switch?
For example here:
It suffers from the same problems these devices have of not recognising the BCM53115 switch but the lan ports work as a hub.
Adding Actiontec R1000H (V1000H, Q1000) (brcm63xx)
Supported since LEDE Reboot. Switch not configurable, work in progress!
SMP. b43 wifi drivers installed. The switch cannot be configured, no WAN support
Adding support for this router should be easy, the hardest part is the external switch.
No WAN support? Switch not configurable? What do these things mean exactly? I would like to know what I'm in for before I embark on this quest.
