(scroll up to mrjcd's post since DD's site change messed up post-specific links)
I use latest builds on my old WRT54*'s, but only for testing, so follow mrjcd's advice. Just be sure not to use 39144 through 39654.
Note that Broadcom bridge modes aren't a good idea unless it's just for one client (or two, maybe). Use Repeater (not Bridge) if possible. Or Client Mode, depending on your requirements.
