Looks interesting. I wonder if it could run slimserver?

I know the DD-WRT creator has gotten DD-WRT to load on several ASUS router models.

If he can make a DD-WRT to work on this model you could install SlimServer on it.

For this range of products ASUS makes source available as it is GPL. There are also some 3rd party variants. The following forum is good for info on related products.

It is a MIPS based system so if the system has enough RAM and CPU power - there should be no problem.

However, it has been difficulty to get the Asus router products in some countries.
