Just returned from a short trip to München, where I was moderating the Admin & Developer Konferenz 2005. I think it was a really good event.

I was travelling very light with just my Crumpler Bees Knees bag. However I should not have left behind my Treo, a patch cable and the Airport Express! So I was a bit more offline than planned. I needed to borrow a cable from the front desk until the next day when Andrew just plugged his D-Link wireless pocket adapter into an Ethernet wall outlet, so everyone in the area was able to connect. Check out this device. It is incredibly tiny, comes with a power supply that runs on 100-250V or can be powered from a USB port. It has a switch on the outside that lets you select from three profiles (Router, Access Point, Client).

looks very cool, but but the Linksys WRT54GC
looks a bit cooler :-)
btw.: Yes, Linux will work on it.

Way too big.

one cm^3 ?! Ok, therefore the D-Link has a much bigger Case, Cables, etc.
how about Asus WL-530G ?! Ok, it has 802.11i as the Linksys and if Linux can put on it i don't know, but it looks also smart :-)

Don't try to one-up the D-Link by suggesting different solutions with more options. Whether it runs Linux or not is irrelevant. You need a small and light package with a no-brainer setup. D-Link provides that.
