Maxim should send you a couple of DS chips as free samples no worries,
I've never had any problems in the past.
As for the micro, I'm a big fan of atmels and use them for almost
everything I build, but in this case I think there's much to be said for
making it as simple as possible. If the router can handle it directly,
you might as well do it. The simple wiring up of a temp chip to pins in
the wrt is much simpler for non-electronics minded hobyists than having
to build a micro based circuit board and program it up.
