Announcing Sputnik-Powered Cisco E900 and E1550

The march toward total Sputnik support for Cisco/Broadcom routers continues! We’ve recently completed porting Sputnik-Powered DD-WRT firmware for the Cisco/Linksys E900, E1200, E1500 and E1550 routers.
The Cisco/Linksys E900 and E1550 are now available in Sputnik’s online store. Updated firmware with Sputnik defaults will be available soon from our downloads page.
Here’s a comparison chart of the routers we now sell.
We’re incredibly excited about these new devices. All of them are great routers for hotspot networks. They also make great range extenders whether in a mesh, WDS or wired network. They all use Cisco’s elegant new industrial design, can be PoE'ed for ease of placement and sustained high-power output, and cloud-managed by Sputnik.

  • small-footprint design (it’s actually about half the size of the other E-series routers)

  • Four 10/100 LAN ports
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE adapter available separately)
