Is there any all in one solution for an ADSL2+ Modem + Wireless Router with an open source (Linux, or any of the BSD guys) firmware I can hack into and configure at my pleasure?

I've been googling for about an hour without any success so far.

UPDATE

I actually ended up choosing a cheap Linksys WAG120N wireless router+adsl2 from CISCO. It costed me a little above 40 EUR.

Although it appears it has an open source firmware (based on Linux, I gather) whose source code can be directly downloaded from their website, I think I will bind a plug computer to it, or some other tiny solutions (read the comments for the informative links).

Buffalo WBMR-HP-G300H: it is the first modem router working with DD-WRT: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/content/first-adsl-router-with-dd-wrt-support

Interpreting your question as a search for suitable hardware having open-source firmware available (and not a search for open-source firmware for some router you already own) -- I'd say there are some. I own a Fritz!Box from AVM, and there is an open source project called Freetz providing an extended firmware you can build on your own with the features you want (they provide an "appliance" VM, so it shouldn't be a big deal). I'm pretty happy with my "Freetz-Box".

Ah, btw: Yes, it's running on Linux...

  • Btw: if you have an Android device, there are a bunch of apps available to remote-control that box :)

  • @FabioA. thank you -- so it looks like it at least pointed you to the right direction :) And for me (plus other curious readers), please: What did you end up with? Might be helpful for others as well.
