Well, I picked up a netgear open source router and flashed it with one of the newer version of DD-WRT. Success!  I had a small problem and thought I had  bricked the router but I was able to TFTP and image up to it and saved the thing.

The features available in the DD-WRT Linux firmware is amazing. Dynamic dns, QoS, VLANs, briding, BGP, monitoring… it is pretty awesome.

If anybody has any questions about setting it up, ordering it, configuring it, let me know.  I’m going to be trying to compile my own version of Linux on it, once I find something I want to add in.
