There's a lot of stuff in that little device. Try browsing to 192.168.100.1 ... admin/admin ... there's an HTTP server there (naturally) ... with a lot of settings (FTP, VPN, and on and on). I don't know what actually works. The server says it is "RALink 4.0.0.0" And ... while stumbling through the menus, I found the System Command option. And did an 'ls'. Some sort of tiny unix/linux in there. Have fun, everyone.
