    Is it possible to get running Shibby MOD or any other in this router? Any help will be very appreciated…

    The signed firmware issue presents a problem. Would have to use tftp rather than web GUI to install firmware, if it would work at all. Otherwise seems similar to E3200.

    Perhaps it may eventually get supported if someone were to donate an EA2700 to one of the devs. Until then I don't think it will happen.

    Oh... I should have asked before buying...
    Should I wait or return it for another working one? (I mean, mod firmware upgrades).
    Thanks for your answer.

    We're all biased here. If cost isn't an issue, Tomato fanatics would get Asus RT-N66U. Could consider AC66U but that's currently experimental. RT-N16 would be fine if you don't need 5GHz.

    Linksys E4200v1 refurbished is the best bang for your buck on the Linksys side, but getting harder to find. There are several E3200 users around.

    Whatever you're considering, do quick searches on techinfodepot and other sites about Tomato compatibility before buying.

    Return it. Waiting is probably a losing scenario. None of the developers have said anything about working on it. It may happen eventually, but it might not. I generally don't "buy" vaporware of any kind.

    You should make it known to Belkin/Linksys that you are returning it because it's not custom firmware-friendly. Complaining DOES work - it spawned the release of the WRT54GL back in the day...

    I can understand why signed firmwares might be nice for added security, but still...
    koitsu and Marcel Tunks like this.

    For me, this thread needs no more explanation.
    Many thanks to everybody for your answers.
