UPDATE: This mod has been abandoned.
I finished fast check of my version of dd-wrt firmware!
All things works as planned!
First of all about what were removed from original firmware to free space for extra modules:
1. IPv6 support.
2. USB printing support.
3. USB serial support.
4. 3G drivers for Sierra and Option cards.
Second - what were added:
1. Swap support by the kernel.
2. ext2 and loop modules
3. ext3 and related modules
4. fat, vfat and related lang modules (nls_cp437, nls_iso8859-1, nls_iso8859-2, nls_utf8)
In attached file you will find the firmware itself.
This file must be used with Asus Firmware Restoration Utility or by using tftp client.
If you don't know what it does mean - please forget about my build!
Busybox included into firmware does not have swapon and swapoff utility built-in therefore you must install and use busybox from optware.
Disclaimer: I believe you know what sentence must be here
Please enjoy your router with build-in FS and SWAP support!
P.S. Just to be sure that uploaded file is intact,

You're right ! i've mistake routers versions. Sorry about that. But i'm pretty sure that IPV6 is necessary to windows7 share neigorhood works properly.
Your 4 LAN ports on the router passes traffic between them without going through the router software so you do not need dd-wrt IPV6 support for that, IPV6 frames will go through the LAN switch.
Network shares work without IPV6 enabled on your computers, it is only a matter of the computers showing up as belonging to the neighbourhood or outside the neighbourhood.
When the time comes that dd-wrt software need IPV6 then it will be because it is needed for routing, for connection to the internet and not because of some stupid Microsoft idea. _________________ Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
