  to repeat earlier question, can one build an openwrt image and flash
an out-of-the-box whr-1166d? i'm not even that obsessed with the
wireless part, i'm sure that won't be hard, what i most want is a
simple solution to basic board-up, just to build, flash and boot.

  has anyone actually *done* this with the whr-1166d? if so, i'll buy
one in a heartbeat.


p.s. thanks for everyone's inestimable patience as i ask admittedly
silly questions on a regular basis. in return, i will be happy to
donate whatever helps the project along. if there's a developer that
needs a router somewhere, i'll be glad to help. or if there's a way to
donate directly, i can do that, too.
