I installed dd-wrt v24 micro on a Linksys WRT54G v6 in 'repeater' mode ('client bridge', 'repeater bridge' didn't work). Now I can use UMA fine. I am on a sub-lan. Call quality is great. I was very surprised, given my router is a 'neutered' one where only a scaled down dd-wrt works.

This T-Mobile UMA service is really great. Most of my calls at work and at home are through the Wifi.
glad to see dd-wrt worked out for you...
incidentally, a friend with an 8320 was over yesterday and she was able to use UMA over my setup as well...
