[Ham-80211] WRT54GL AP?

I'm talking specifically about their Access Point/Routers, namely the 
WHR-HP-G54 and the WHR-G54S Airstation units.  They run Linux and can 
use DD-WRT as of Version 2.3.  I have the WHR-HP-G54, but the G54S 
allegedly is cooler running and has better power.

I'm not talking about the cards, I'm talking about the routers 
themselves.  I can't speak specifically about the cards.  However, 
Linux folks are handy hackers and it's quite possible they have 
engineered a driver, so you may want to re-look if you have not 
recently just in case someone has hacked one up.
