I have an Asus WL-500g (one with LPT port) and I have got the following to boot:
Backfire 47xx (2.6), but I can't get USB to work
Kamikaze 47xx (2.6), but I can't get USB to work (and also this does not have wireless support)
Kamikaze Brcm 2.4, and everything works - USB & Wireless.
I have a HID remote control and I would like to get this to work, but hid drivers are only in 2.6 kernel, which is why I have tried 2.6 kernels.
If anyone has USB working on 2.6 kernel, or HID drivers working on 2.4 kernel for WL-500g, then let me know.
In Backfire 2.6, after adding kmod-usb-core, kmod-usb-ohci, kmod-scsi-core & kmod-usb-storage, I don't see scsi directory in /dev and if I plug in a USB stick, then dmesg says absolutely nothing, but if I add the same packages in Kamikaze 2.4, I get /dev/scsi and if I plug in a USB stick, then I get messages in dmesg.
For Kamikaze 2.4, if I run "insmod usbcore" then I get:
insmod: a module named usbcore already exists
But in Backfire 2.6 I get:
insmod: can't insert 'usbcore': File exists
I don't know if there is a change in the messages diplayed between 2.4 and 2.6 or whether this slightly different messages indicates an issue.
