I just pop up an idea.

Since the OS of linksys Routers and Gateways are Linux based, would it be possible to be hacked and turned into a Linux workstation or servers in addition to its current limited applications.

"If you are looking to buy a Linksys router, be aware that only the WRTG54L still uses the open firmware based on Linux and can be flashed with an Linux-based alternative."

From my own experience the quote is inaccurate. I have and use both the older version of WRT54G and the WRT54GS version. The second version can/has been flashed with the ddt-wrt system. If you look at their site you will find up to date information on all Linksys routers which can/have been flashed and a load of other devices which can also be flashed.

Other versions of these open firmware systems are also capable of being flashed onto numerous devices. "Google is your Friend!"
