Hi Chris

At IleSansFil, our de-facto piece of hardware of choice is the  
Linksys router model WRT54G

The router (hardware revisions 1-4, and revision 5 with the L suffix)  
runs linux.  We re-flash the router with a minimal linux distribution  
named OpenWRT, and on top of it install the pre-compiled wifidog  
package for its' processor (MIPS).

I would imagine that this router model is available in the UK,  
however I'm not sure.

Aside from running linux and being one of the most-hacked consumer  
products ever made, it's price point is fairly low.

If that router is not available, keep in mind that the wifidog client  
was designed with embedded devices in mind and would run on any linux  
distribution as long as you can spare a few kilobytes of storage.
