I don't think so.

"will work" maybe but at the moment only the Linksys NSLU2 is properly
supported.  I've put the Asus WL*/Netgear WGT634U work on hold until
there's proper kernel support.  According to Broadcom, they might work
on it this summer but it hasn't been decided yet.

Yes, I intend to work on the Thecus N2100.  I don't know anything
about the Freecom FSG-3.

Yeah.  The MIPS page is completely out of date and needs a major
update and I suppose the ARM page might be in a similar state.  It's
somewhere on my TODO list but I'm not sure when I'll get to it.

Can they provide some free devices?
