Description

Id like to see support for the Netgear WNR834b V2

dd-wrt is supporting the device. the reason openwrt cant support it is

This router maintains a hidden Flash RAM area between 0x1fc00000 and 0x1ffe0000 containing the router's serial number, MAC address, and board code. 

so if i flashed the device then once jffs kicks in it would erase the board_data and use it for jffs and brick the router.

here is a link to the code that enables dd-wrt to support this device. http://svn.dd-wrt.com:8000/dd-wrt/browser/src/linux/brcm/linux.v24_2/drivers/mtd/maps/bcm947xx-flash.c

here is a link with more info on the device.
http://oldwiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs%282f%29Hardware%282f%29Netgear%282f%29WNR834B.html

it sounds like an easy patch but what do i know :p

Thanks in advanced!
