Any Linux-based router running TomatoUSB along with an external HDD would have those abilities.

I think the best would be a LaCiE Wireless Space. It has routing abilities (ethernet only), WiFi, a hard drive, USB ports for extra disks / flash, and all in one sleek box.

I don't know of any of-the-shelf solutions, so my advice would be to buy (or build) the NAS along with a wireless access point. Then connect the two directly with an Ethernet cable.

Although it's possible to build a NAS with an integrated wireless card (for example, some mini-ITX motherboards include a wireless PCI Express Mini card), it would be difficult to guarantee driver support - especially with FreeNAS.
