I dare suggest most users do not care about that functionality. Having 
said that. the CyberGuard SG[1] line of routers is capable of doing what 
you request, and are actually Linux based machines running from flash. 
You can access the configuration files directly via Web, SSH, Telnet, or 
serial depending on configuration.

 From immediate memory, the SG300 can do this. Oz Technologies has the 
unit listed for $400. http://www.cyberguard.com/snapgear/SG300.html for 
more information.

I did a single query search using Google, and I found D-Link[2] and 

[1] CyberGuard SG line are the products formerly sold by SnapGear.
[2] DI-804HV ($169.00 at Umart)
[3] FR328S ($265.00 at Umart)
