if it has at least 4G of flash, brainslayer probably has a build for it.  
Do a search using the model # from yours to find out if it will work for 
you. Most routers above the 65 USD price break can probably be flashed.

I'm useing a Buffalo NetFinity, $70+ ship, came with dd-wrt but the 
branding video image covered some functions I needed, so I installed it 
from the dd-wrt site, and with some minor tweaking, and one reflash, its 
been sitting on the other side of the big printer for about 8 years now.  
The only traffic that comes in unannounced is to my web page, which I 
have in a permissions sandbox on this machine.
