I have experience with both the E3200 and E4200 models. I have not
worked with an E3000 before though. In any case, they are both
Wireless-N routers. FreeBSD does not play well with "N" wireless
devices. In any case, have you tried doing a hard reset of the router
and then rebooting it and then you system?

In regards to tech support, at least in my experience with Linksys, if
you don't ask a specific question you are not going to get anywhere. I
have found e-mail support to be better or even the live support if
available. In any case, you can and I have requested a new support
representative and have received one. Sometimes it is just the
individual whom you are talking to cannot understand the question
correctly.
