If your machine supports these protocols (and it will do if it's running

Except for the routers that come with a MS Windows only application for
configuring the router, instead of a web interface on the router.

Didn't know there was such a thing. I've never come across one yet.

Actually the Apple-routers (Time Capsule, Airport (Express)) can only be configured via an application by Apple that works only w/ OS X or Win but you don't want to have one of those if there isn't a real good reason (like music distribution via iTunes/Airport Express-combo or you are total compuert inept and need the easy-configurability which those products offer). Even for a TC there is no reason anymore if you are computer-savvy and don't fear to configure netatalk And in this case you can even have ZFS thanks to FreeBSD (don't know the state of netatalk in Open Solaris)
