I am trying to decide between these two portable routers:

Wireless-G Travel Router
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?childpagename=...
Wireless-G Compact Router
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?childpagename=...

I would be using it to tap in to my parents DSL when visiting. They
have an IMAC conected directly to a DSL modem. I figure with on of
these I could plug it into the DSL line and plug the IMAC into the
ethernet port. Then access the wireless network with my laptop. Also I
could use it traveling else where.

The question is which would be better. Considering range and ease of
use.

Buy them a WRT54G and leave it in place.

I imagine you are asking William that question.

Anyways I ordered the "Wireless-G Compact Router". As I do not need SES
and thought the power cord would be nice to position the unit in a
stategic spot as opposed to at the socket.

Thanks

You are sure it's not a USB DSL modem?
