I have a WRT54G (v2.2) and a RB112. The WRT54G(L) is awesome value for money
when using a third party firmware. The RB112 and more specifically RouterOS
are just on a completely different level. All depends on your needs

As for your example I don't any of the GUI based firmwares offer that but I
imagine if you can do it in BSD/Linux you can probably do it using OpenWRT.
I don't know how but I'd bet that you can definitely do it on a RB112.

Why don't you come have a chat on irc with some experts on
hub.jawug.za.net#wnet. Those guys know more than me...
