Hi Thanks for that,
I originally wanted the 2.6 kernel for 802.11s, but then found build issues with 2.4 in K8.09 and it all got messy. So back to the trusted k7.09 with batman to the rescue. This thread I kicked off on the openwrt forum would seem to confirm no native brcm support in k8.09 https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=20620

thats based on a 2.6 kernel build, OpenWRT still supports this board on 2.4 kernel
under 8.09 or 8.09.1, your so legacy is kinda funny. im sure you can find a 8.09.1 build for that unit

Hi Marek,

Thanks for the update.

I'm using 7.09 as last time I looked there was no support for the broadcom 802.11 in 8.09.
