Can you clarify?  You put it as three lines like that?

Counter-intuitively (but seemingly confirmed by some quick testing), I
don't think hostname is part of the message.  I have another idea that
DID appear to work (obviously I tested with my own hostname), though it
didn't log as much as I expected ...</ominous>:

:HOSTNAME, isequal, "router" /var/log/dd-wrt/router.log

All one line, capitalized HOSTNAME.  Also, just to be safe make sure
/var/log/dd-wrt/router.log already exists with the same permissions
(user/group/mode) as /var/log/messages before you restart rsyslogd.

Right, my mistake.

You /might/ be able to disable it if you hard-coded the MAC address of
every machine (including routers, firewalls, etc.) on your LAN.
However, I highly advise against attempting this.
