I'm still partial to the wrt54gl units. I have about a dozen running here
and there and they seem to work great. I run OpenWRT on all my mine, very
Linux-like interface which suits me (plus they are managed remotely so being
able to ssh into the m over the Internet and be able to "do anything" to
them is a big plus).
I used to have an Asus 500 something or another. It was pretty cool as it
had even more RAM and flash AND it had a USB connection so you could attach
just about anything you wanted to do it. Very handy.
