As this is a linux list, I feel inclined to point out, WRT54G v5.0 uses 
VxWorks, not linux, so.... have fun trying to mod them (you can't)

Go to http://wiki.openwrt.org/TableOfHardware and pick something that 
can run openwrt, otherwise, you will not be doing anything other than 
standard routing and ap.
