DD-WRT wireless-n (802.11n) strangeness

I have already forgotten the solution to devices only being able to connect to my Asus WL-500W running DD-WRT at wireless-g (802.11g) speeds, twice, so I'm writing this down.

The router must have WMM (wireless multimedia mode aka Ad-hoc QoS) enabled for devices to connect to it using 802.11n. The devices themselves don't need WMM enabled however so this is clearly a bug in DD-WRT that will probably not be fixed.
