Excellent question.  I don't know.  I can send a ping to but 
that's with the busybox ping program, which does not support "broadcast" 
pings AFAIK.  When I do that, I can see the ping with a TCP dump on the .1 
router, so I know it gets transmitted...  but I get no responses to it from 
any router.
I need a "real" ping program built for a WRT54G that I can use to broadcast 
ping with.  Anyone?
