1. Buy a linksys box off the shelf from radio shack or wherever [factory sealed]How do you know what you get in the box is the same as what was shipped from the factory? Or was it just re-sealed and put back on the shelf with an altered configuration?
2. Download the latest firmware and/or its source code from ftp.linksys.com, or the wifi-box.net site.
3. Build it yourself
4. As these two I mentioned (sveasoft / wifi-box) are open source, trust the developer community to some extent when you download firmware from their site.
