How secure are off the shelf domestic routers?

    Someone made the comment to me yesterday that if someone knows what they are
    doing they can crack a domestic router (linksys, netgear etc) in a couple of
    hours. Personally I think this is hogwash - but is there any truth in it?
    Are there methods to get through a domestic router (from the Internet,
    assuming no LAN access)? and if so what precautions should I be taking?

    Sorry, I appreciate this is vague, I'm more interested in if there is any
    truth to the rumour.

    Thanks.
