I have the DWL-630 and it's not all that great. If I was you, out of those two choices I'd go for the the DWL-520.

I believe they are the same cept the second one is smaller, weighs less, and is newer. The 520 has 15+2db gain transmit power whereas the second one dosent. According to Newegg the operating range is no different. From a spec view the second one is better by what i said before. Other than that i have no idea. I would choose the second one.

THat really dosent make a difference today becasue most ppl dont use 108mb wireless yet. Its to exspensive to buy a 108mb wireless router thats good.
