I think that [Speed|Range]Booster allows (theoretically) greater
transfer rates and range with compatible cards / firmware - which
probably just means other Linksys ones.  For regular home use, I don't
think you should care, unless your brother's house is very large and/or
has thick walls.

I don't think that there's a functional difference between the two
different versions with the stock Linksys firmware (other than the
VXWorks one might have less internal memory - but does it matter?), but
I'm not an expert.  I'm sure that if there is a substantial difference
the information will be on the internet... ...somewhere.
