DD-WRT definitely lets you do this.  I do exactly this myself (though on a
different kind of router; however, I do also have a WRT54G, but I put
OpenWRT on it long ago and have not bothered changing it).  DD-WRT is not
very difficult to install or setup at all.  If you can install and
configure MythTV, DD-WRT is no harder, in my opinion.  Do be sure to check
which version of the router you have; if I remember correctly, the most
recent version had a different CPU that was not compatible with many
alternative firmwares.
