Linus has some problems sending mails to the list, so I forward his reply.

I got the binaries from the openwrt prebuilt packages. However, now I rebuilt the image and built batman-adv 2011.myself. I will try this now and let you know.
However, now I am running into a much bigger issue. If two routers are plugged in to the same switch, bridge loop avoidance doesnt work and both of them are stopping responding to pings.
Could you try "batctl ping" too and check whether this is working or not.
If that's working but the normal pinging is not, then it should be a layer 3 problem - in that case we'd need the outputs of "ip route show" and "ip address show".
If batctl ping is already not working then "batctl o" and "batctl if" output will be interesting.
Here is my config.
bat0 if: wlan1: active.
wlan1: Mesh Network.
wlan0: Infrastructure network. eth0 : 4 lan ports eth1: 1 wan port
br-lan : wlan0 eth0 eth1 bat0
Hmm, that looks sane and correct, should work like that.
Is there anything weird in the output of "dmesg"? Any errors or warnings?
