    I realize that one is wired and one is wireless.

    For example, the WRTSL54GS is newer than the NSLU2. Does it have more capabilities?

    Can anyone compare openwrt running on the WRTsl54gs vs the Slug Linux project?

    Does the WRTsl54gs handle harddrives better than the slug? How about running a sliim server? How about Asterix?

    OpenWRT runs fine on SL, never tried Slug.

    USB2 port allows a lot of room for choices. You can have a simple flash-drive in there for lightweight file-sharing. Or you can add a powered hub and have a bunch of things attached. Yesterday I had a flash-drive, hard drive, cell phone and a GPS unit. Although the GPS was not working, think it's a problem with PL2303 driver. Hell of a lot of fun to hack around with, think it will be some months before this territory is well mapped out.

    I'm not sure file-sharing is ready for prime-time on this box, even the Linksys firmware has some issues. If you just want stable file-sharing stick with NSLU2.
