#6775 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add support for nth and random iptables matches to brcm-2.4

Please reopen the ticket # 879 and add support for random and nth matches to iptables.
Old Ticket: /ticket/879.html

brcm-2.4 is the only choice for reliable broadcom wifi support as of Feb 2010 and the statistics match (which replaced nth and random matches) exists only for 2.6 kernels.

Unfortunately, the standard iptables 1.3.8 release which is being used in Release had dropped support for random and nth (since it assumes statistics match and 2.6 kernels). So iptables 1.3.8 has to be patched. I can attach the patches I created to make this happen - but I'm sure the openwrt developers can do a better job here.
