Support for the Cisco-Linksys Wrt160n v2 is possible

Description

Support for the Wrt160n v2 probably won't happen, but from the mass amount of research I have done and subsequently have attempted to make a build for this device just to end in failure(but I don't know much about compiling the Linux kernel).

I realize all necessary hardware drivers do exist according to what went on with DD-WRT a while back(they had everything working on one except for ethernet support, which is very necessary) and sitting in your SVN repository is this, the necessary drivers needed to get the ethernet switch to work: [url]https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/target/linux/generic/files/drivers/net/phy/rtl8306.c[/url]

This should also be of assistance in the porting procedure:
[url]http://infodepot.wikia.com/wiki/Linksys_WRT160N_v2.0#Specs[/url]

I went through to attempt to build a copy myself(which not only took all day, I could not get it to flash for the life of me). I don't believe I compiled it right anyway, but even so there are various methods of recovery if it was to start. OpenWRT has always been the best wireless router firmware because of all it can do and because of the massive developer pool supporting it and keeping it going. While I normally do not get involved in any kind of development, this seemed like it would be a simple task, and I figured it wouldn't take muck of an experienced developers time.

If this does come to be I, and many others, will be very grateful.

According to http://svn.dd-wrt.com:8000/ticket/1039
dd-wrt is trying to integrate the rtl8306 code from openwrt on this router.

I guess a well educated openwrt-dev can write an corresponding Makefile in less than a minute.
If not: how can I adapt the build targets for ramips to use the ethernet switch code of a rtl8306 phy?

Wrt160N is a RT2880F with 4 Mb Flash and 16 Mb Ram. See http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=245302 for photos and additional information.

The code for the switch apparently comes from openwrt.
Probably we should try to add a build profile?

See comments below and please increase priority to medium or high. All the code seems to be available and that Router is probably affected by the WPS bug as well - yet to be tested.

this would be great for this support to be added!
