Linksys routers!

The DD-WRT firmware is so far beyond the OEM firmware it's not even funny. I especially love the power tuning features, which let you overload the antennae up to 20x the default power.

I never used Cannon cameras myself, but from what I've read and heard, CHDK guys seem to be doing great job!

Another great project is NSLU2 from Linksys. People made significant progress with free firmwares for it.
