I've got two of them. Got them on sale - really cheap. Unfortunately, the LEDs aren't blue. They're yellow. At least on my two. They are in the picture on the box, however.
As for the firmware:
Here's how I got openwrt on it.
I used Mac OS X, but you should be able to follow the same instructions on Linux.
Get the file named openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx - this is the trx file for writing to the flash.
Plug the computer and the R100 together with a LAN cable, in the LAN of the R100.
Ensure you can ping the R100.
Then run sudo arp -s 192.168.1.1 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (replace xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx with the MAC address of your unit as on the sticker on the bottom).
Ensure you can ping it again.
Then pull the power plug, and reinsert it holding the button on the back.
When the power light starts flashing slowly, release the button.
tftp>get ASUSSPACELINKaaaa /dev/null
(this should start, but timeout, we do this to check whether the connection is working)
tftp>put openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx ASUSSPACELINKaaaa
Wait for the transfer to complete, and it's done...
sudo arp -a -d (clear the ARP table, remove that static arp entry...)
