It went pretty easily and now I have a cool router I can ssh into and configure directly. It's also nice knowing support (and security updates) won't stop because it was "discontinued by the manufacturer". I may put one together for our Taiwan condo too.
I installed the HTTPS Everywhere plugin (by EFF) into Firefox. It's a pretty innocuous plugin. Just install and it automatically redirects you to use SSL on many popular websites. It's solid enough I installed it on my wife's Firefox too, and she's had no problems with it. Nice to know her Facebook and other accounts can't be stolen as easily.
