Overview[edit]

1733 Mbps - 4-stream 802.11ac device (433Mbps per stream),
800 Mbps - max. PHY rate for the 40MHz wide 2.4GHz channel = 2600 Mbps class

"EWW604-B1-L5 REV:205 (XC)" is silkscreened on the board in the photos.

CyberTAN EWW604 manuf.

"EWW604-B1-L5 REV:305 (XD)" is silkscreened on one newer revision unit.

Newer revision units omit a populated serial header and likely have newer firmware (which locks out flashing third-party firmware), necessitating flashing via manual TFTP in U-Boot (see here). According to the Product comparison chart of the EA7500, EA8500, E8350 and E8400

from Linksys, the E8500 supports wireless bridge and wireless repeater modes.

Wi-Fi Certified : WFA59270 (as of 04/14/2015)
