You could... but why would you want to? You don't want any down time on a router or a hub... including when your batteries go dead! :)
Yes you can run most routers off batteries without any changes unless the router has a power supply built in rather then using a power brick. I believe most routers run off 12V DC.

The power brick on my Linksys outputs 12V @ 500 mA. You'll need 8 D, C, AA, or AAA batteries to power a similar router. Keep in mind the larger the battery you use the longer it will last.
