now the question is, how do I translate "route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev mwlan0" to something with "ip route ..."
I have looked at it for a while, but everything I have tried has failed with error:

    ip: either "to" is duplicate, or "240.0.0.0" is a garbage.

(was on command: "ip route add 224.0.0.0 to multicast 240.0.0.0 dev mwlan0")

For kicks, I have enabled the "route" option in the busybox menuconfig and am now transferring new filesystem over to see if I have it.  That would solve all my problems if it worked.
