While this may seem like a simple question, it is NOT

There are so many router-specific builds of DD-WRT, that looking at the Build version on the top right does not expose that information. Also clicking on the Status/Router does not expose that information.

Which kind of build of DDWRT was originally uploaded? A specialized one? Broadcom? Broadcom K26? Broadcom K3X?

Who knows??

Edit: Ok, duh, I figured out the Kernel part. Just below the build info. But still have questions about what was last flashed.

First of all if the router is not broadcom based, the build was built especially for that router model. The features that are included are what you get, there is not much you can do about that. All non-broadcom routers have standard builds, some with slightly more than broadcom standard features, some less.

Now, broadcom is different.

You can find out which build you have by looking in the top right hand corner (big, mega, std, etc). The kernel version (K26, K3X) is listed on the Status page, click the status tab.

See this for more info in what is in each version: https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/What_is_DD-WRT%3F#File_Versions
