[Commotion-dev] Working Openwrt build for Buffalo

I just tried out the Buffalo router running r26910 on a Charter cable uplink
for WasabiNet, and sadly it wouldn't take a DHCP lease from the cable modem
(which I connected to eth1, aka blue WAN port). Oddly enough, eth1 does get
its DHCP address fine if I attach it to a port on a DD-WRT router I have
sitting around, but not the cable modem.
Has anyone else had similar difficulties using their NFiniti with a wired
broadband connection that issues DHCP leases? I don't have this problem
with the Mikrotik rb532a boards running Backfire rc4, when connected to a
Charter cable modem.
