I got a Cisco E3000 router for free from Comcast for participating int their IPv6 trials. I want to use it in the "Roomba Recon" project from MAKE 27. This means getting the OpenWRT firmware installed on it.
Unfortunately, the e3000 is still a bit experimental there, so this hasn't been easy. I should have been recording my notes on the process from the beginning.
Things I should remember:
This is a life-saver! I'd have a brick without it.
I soldered jumper wires onto the pads (see pic on this page) inside the router:
USB cable with a 3.3-V FTDI basic breakout (purchased from Sparkfun).
Using TeraTerm for Windows as my terminal emulator (115000@8N1).
