Multi USB HDD's with USB Hub and DD-WRT

I have discovered that the OEM firmware does not suppot more than one external USB HDD being connected to the WNR3500L router. Does the DD-WRT (Kong's?) firmware support more than one external USB HDD connected to the router via a HSB hub powered/unpowered?

I intend to switch over to DD-WRT over the Christmas beak while my office is closed, hopefully with bricking the router.

Good luck

Kong was referring to DD-WRT

Kong was referring to DD-WRT firmware. I am referring to the OEM (Netgear) firmware.

It does not support setup of

It does not support setup of two drives via gui. Using two drives the second drives has to be mounted using a command e.g. through Administration->Commands or by running a script or mounting by hand through ssh. IN addition to that the gui only displays the info for one disk.
