Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

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.
