Head to Head: ASUS WL-530g vs. Linksys WRT54GC Mini Wireless Routers

Introduction

Linksys Compact Wireless-G Broadband Router

ASUS Pocket 4-Port Wireless Router

Electronic gadgets are always getting smaller. I recall lugging around a cell phone the size and weight of a brick at one time, now there's one on my belt smaller than a deck of cards. Well, wireless routers are getting smaller too, so I took a look at a pair of tiny products with similar specs, the Linksys WRT54GC and the Asus WL-530g.
