Mini router – GL-iNet (Part -1 )
Recently i got hold of this mini router GL-iNet, it is very much clone of TP-Link but, it has more and better specification. Details are available from their home page http://www.gl-inet.com
Due to it larger flash and ram memory, we can customise the router to run on OpenWRT too.
