"Generic" Tomato for generic routers with Broadcom chipsets?

    DD-WRT has a "generic" .bin file that loads and runs on my router (which is an older off-brand router but based on a Broadcom chip). Tomato loads onto the router, but it can't initialize the radio. How hard would it be for Tomato to create a generic .bin firmware file like DD-WRT has?

    The chipset my router is based on is the Broadcom 4710 chipset which was used on the WRT54G v1 and v1.1, 125mhz with 4mb flash and 16mb RAM....I tried the WRT54G version of Tomato, which loaded fine (I was able to log into the router great), but it wouldn't sync with the cable modem, and it couldn't initialize the radio.

    DD-WRT says my router is the Siemens SE505 v1, but it's an off-brand (AirLink) that I purchased from Fry's (an electronics retailer in the US) years ago. It wouldn't surprise me if was just rebranded Siemens router.
