I wont to add a note:

The wds compatibility (even between v23 and v24) is a absolutly necesary feature for me...
I plan to replace the hardware of some hotspots (each 2 or 3 wrts and a 5 ghz bridge) with this units and all the 2.4 ghz client units also uses wds connections.
So without wds compatibility i cant replace the hotspots without changing the firmware on all client units. Sad

this is not my faul. you can forward the issue to broadcom

v23 and v24 are connecting to each other. but its very slow. the new drivers are not compatible with the old ones with wds at all as it seems

You already had ported it Rolling Eyes and dd-wrt is the only hope for the WRV54G users cause linksys never managed to release a good firmware for it. So it would be fine if there could be a hardware detection and we will be able to use the future dd-wrt IXP builds on this unit .

hardware detection is not enough. it has nother bootloader and it has a switch additionally too. so it must a complete different image unless you get redboot working on it. then there is a good change to get the avila gateworks firmware running on it without big changes

yes but unlink the gateworks kendin switch. this switch is connected in a wrong way and needs some special driver handling

Wo ist der der WRV54G von Brain hin? Er hatte damals sogar eine Firmware für den OpenRG Bootloader gebaut... und mir versprochen wenn der Redboot läuft gibt es DD-WRT support.

Finally REDBOOT is working on this unit. But none of the images I have found (OpenWRT ixp4xx as an example) worked at all.

This are my logs:
