I also have the EA9500. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance. I am studying networking and cybersecurity and wish I had bought one capable of SNMP, as I need to learn to use networking monitoring tools.

There are several of us who want this on the EA9500. I read here that Brainslayer needs one donated in order to develop it. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#Linksys_.28a_division_of_Belkin_-_formerly_Cisco.29

Is there a way for us to come together to purchase one for development? I can't buy a whole new router, but I'm good for $50...

Now is your chance to get one of these on the cheap for development.

https://serialize.wordpress.com/ has alot of info regarding firmware and install on EA9500. Also has firmware source:

Firmware Source:

http://downloads.linksys.com/downloads/gpl/EA9500_v1.1.7.177204.tar.gz

Hardware Info:
CPU Broadcom BCM4709C0KFEBG dual-core @ 1.4 GHz
Switch in BCM4709C0KFEBG & BCM53125
RAM 256 MB
Flash 128 MB
2.4 GHz Radio BCM4366 4×4 2.4/5G single chip 802.11ac SoC
Skyworks SE2623L 2.4 GHz power amp (x4)
5 GHz radio BCM4366 4×4 2.4/5G single chip 802.11ac SoC
RFMD RFPA5542 5 GHz PA module (x4)
NOTE: There are two 5 GHz radios.
PCIe PLX Technology PEX8603 3-lane, 3-port PCIe switch

It appears that like Netgear R8000, Linksys EA9500 CPU is connected to CPU port 5. Additionally we have to add VLAN1 changes to accommodate this.

For b53_common.c, at around line 1385 add following:
1386
1387

if (of_machine_is_compatible("linksys,ea9500"))
sw_dev->cpu_port = 5;

Adding changes to Network Config (target/linux/bcm53xx/base_files/02_network):

wan_macaddr="$(nvram get wan_hwaddr)"
case "$board" in
asus,rt-ac87u)
ifname=eth1
etXmacaddr=$(nvram get et1macaddr)
;;
dlink,dir-885l | \
netgear,r7900 | \
netgear,r8000 | \
netgear,r8500 | \
linksys,ea9500) # add ea9500
ifname=eth2
etXmacaddr=$(nvram get et2macaddr)
;;
*)
ifname=eth0
etXmacaddr=$(nvram get et0macaddr)
;;
esac

# If WAN MAC isn't explicitly set, calculate it using base MAC as reference.
[ -z "$wan_macaddr" -a -n "$etXmacaddr" ] && wan_macaddr=$(macaddr_add "$etXmacaddr" 1)

# Workaround for devices using eth2 connected to (CPU) switch port 8
case "$board" in
dlink,dir-885l | \
netgear,r7900 | \
netgear,r8000 | \
netgear,r8500 | \
linksys,ea9500) # add ea9500
ifname=eth0
ucidef_add_switch "switch0" \
"0:lan" "1:lan" "2:lan" "3:lan" "4:wan" "5t@$ifname"

# These devices should use eth2 so their eth0 interface often has no MAC
# assigned. Manually assign eth2's MAC to the LAN.
et2macaddr="$(nvram get et2macaddr)"
[ -n "$et2macaddr" ] && ucidef_set_interface_macaddr "lan" "$et2macaddr"
[ -n "$wan_macaddr" ] && ucidef_set_interface_macaddr "wan" "$wan_macaddr"

Awesome!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to have to check here daily to see when it's available. Make sure you have 802.11R support!

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I've been frustrated with he ea9500, which I bought partially to replace my tired old download server... Or at least, offload some tasks to it, and was looking to install LEDE on it, eventually. I would feel much more "safe" installing DD-WRT once it becomes available though Smile So seeing the last couple of posts, @mattlesh1 - Awesome work! If you need an alpha or beta tester who also knows his way around code and electronics, hit me up! Happy to help.

So very unfortunately, there will be no possible way of getting ddwrt on to the Linksys EA9500. Although we have developed dd-wrt for it, it will not be able to work as the firmware for both the models (v1 having a dual core broadcom northstar cpu. And v2 having arm 64 quadcore cpu) are encrypted and signed via pgp. A sad day indeed Sad
