Get the best of both worlds. I just got a Linksys WRT54G, which runs Linux 
on a MIPS processor and has a fair amount of Flash. Linksys provides the 
GPL'd source so you can recreate what's in the box. Google for "Linksys 
Linux router" for lots of articles on what you can do with it. Or grab a 
custom Linux image from http://www.sveasoft.com/.
