Any opinions on this one?<br><br>Wife wants to get rid of some wiring and, since her MacMini is wireless capable, why the heck not? (besides, gives me more reason to think more about getting a MacBook - maybe the next generation.) Oh! I have a Best Buy gift card as a Christmas gift that I haven't used. <br><br><br>
A router is a router is a router. Go for price. Except Linksys, "just say no" from my personal experience. I see Linksys working just fine in most instances, but the only wireless routers I have ever had incompatibilities with Macs are Linksys.<br><br>Do you have to get it from Best Buy? You can get it cheaper elsewhere.<br><br>BTW, the "Range Booster" works only if you have a D-Link wireless card in the computer, it's proprietary for D-Link products only. So if you get that one you can turn it off when setting up the router.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game

Agreed on the Linksys - once I got it set up the way I wanted, no problems!<br><br>My only complaint would be the inability to open more ports beyond the 9 or 10 the setup screen allows you to.<br><br>[color:purple]Work With ____! </font color=purple>
I have 3 Macs using airport. 2 in the living room and one in the fireplace room.<br><br>Not sure what you guys are talking about Wireless Router.<br><br>I use Airport Extreme at my Comcast modem. Is THAT my router? If not, what would I need a 'router' for? Should I get one?<br><br>I also get a good signal from my neighbors PC wireless setup using my airport cards, but she has a dumba$$ Verizon $14.99 a month dsl connection. But in emergencies, it has come in handy for me <br><br><br><br><br>
