Partially Fixed with the new trunk snapshots, however you need to modify the similink in rc.d to be S99 rather than S65.
atleast for me

Modified /etc/init.d/wifidog and used procd ( to make it work again (BB 14.07) :

#!/bin/sh /etc/rc.common
# Copyright (C) 2006


EXTRA_HELP="        status Print the status of the service"

start_service() {
        procd_set_param command /usr/bin/wifidog-init start
        procd_set_param respawn # respawn automatically if something died, be careful if you have an alternative process supervisor
        procd_set_param file /etc/wifidog.conf

stop_service() {
        /usr/bin/wifidog-init stop

status() {

        /usr/bin/wifidog-init status

service_triggers() {
        # don't know which one is used by now, adjust to your need
        procd_add_network_trigger "eth0"|"eth1"|"wlan0"|"br-lan"
        procd_add_reload_interface_trigger "eth0"|"eth1"|"wlan0"|"br-lan"

I am not used to procd, so please write it beautifully if you know how.

wifidog is in the oldpackages repo. no changes will be made to it until it is submitted to github and maintained there from that point on.
