I was not reading this thread very carefully, and I didn't realize that
you were referring to speech support; I should have realized that you
meant exactly what you said when you wrote "talk with firefox" ...

>From a quick perusal of the Openwrt site and Wiki that the two main
determinants of support are the chipset and the memory (flash and vram)
capacity.  The unit is Atheros based (it's a 108 super g model), for
which there's apparently at least some support, but there's apparently
no real way to determine the memory capacity short of opening the box,
checking part numbers, and then researching them.
