Installing LEDE on Linksys EA3500

This is my experience installing LEDE firmware on a Linksys EA3500. This is a sub $30 router available for sale on Amazon that supports 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz with enough memory for decent projects.

Upgrading the router from the stock router firmware to LEDE required an intermediate step of first upgrading to OpenWRT.

  1. Install openwrt-kirkwood-linksys-audi-squashfs-factory.bin on the factory firmware
  2. SSH into the router
  3. Exec
    opkg update
  4. Exec
    opkg install luci
  5. Open the router admin page and install the LEDE sysupgrade firmware lede-17.01.4-kirkwood-linksys-audi-squashfs-sysupgrade.tar
