Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you checked the dd-wrt, openwrt, or tomato FAQ's regarding supported hardware?
For instance, dd-wrt's router database lists this model as "not possible" (as opposed to either "work in progress" or "supported") so it's doubtful one of the other linux-based router firmware distributions will work on it, either.
I doubt it's possible, then. Most of the open-source linux-based router firmware distributions require a hardware platform/standard capable of being reflashed (usually Broadcom- or Atheros-based chipsets).
I think I remember hearing the recent DLink routers have some pretty nice features, but are *not* compatible with anything other than DLink-provided firmware.
If you're really interested in trying something like dd-wrt out I would recommend purchasing a recent Linksys listed to be compatible (ex: WRT160N) , if you need Wireless-N support, or an older WRT54G if you only need Wireless-G.
Thx very much, the problem is that i just got my new router..as a gift, so i can't buy a new one. Don't get me wrong, i'm very satisfied with it in comparison to my old one, i just wanted to try something differend.
