    3232- Other brcm4716 based devices include the Belkin PlayMax F7D4301, Linksys E3000 v1 and the Linksys WRT610N v2. This plugin should work for them as well but is untested.
     34= RT-N16 Initial Configuration Script =
     36This script was made to automatically perform many of the necessary steps of setting up, securing and optimizing the RT-N16 for use as a router. Can be used with both installations from pre-compiled archives or building from source. It is to be run by the user on the first boot after rootfs installation.
     38List of tasks performed:
     39- Package debwrt-net and dependencies are installed if missing
     40- The /etc/network/interfaces.broadcom file is patched for use with the RT-N16 and enabled
     41- DNSMASQ is enabled
     42- /etc/apt/sources.list is set to debian default (including security and updates repositories)
     43- aptitude update and upgrade are run to install all the latest security updates
     44- Both the power and wireless LED are enabled
     45- User is prompted with an option to automatically overclock their router to 532MHz from the stock 480MHz
     46- User is prompted to set their own SSID other than the default
     47- User is prompted to set a wireless password
     48- User is prompted to set their timezone
     49- User is prompted to change the root password
     50- Router reboots automatically and voila! You have an up-to-date working router
     531. Download the script from here:  [] and place it on the usb stick containing the DebWrt rootfs
