Motorola WR850g + OpenWRT here :)
Nice, silent, low energy requirements (11W PSU), small, and has WiFi.

And if you want to create DMZs with it, you can configure each of
the 4 LAN Ethernet ports on a different VLAN.

I'm getting some Linksys WRT54GL tomorrow too.

My WR850g went in to replace my CentOS based firewall box (based on K6,
128M RAM).
