"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.
