The first generation wireless is more than fast enough for internet. I see them on ebay once in a while for $30 or so but most around $50-60. Higher to the idiots.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
Personally, if your local network is all Mac, I recommend spending a little more and buying Airport Extreme basestation.<br><br>Not only is it a snap to setup, it's much easier to share files wirelessly.<br><br>The Linksys routers are great for connecting to the web, but hard to setup to share files, imho.<br><br>Not saying it can't be done, just hard to do. I prefer to pay more for "easy".<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I've gone through several Belkin and LinkSys routers and have found them to be very inconsistent, qualitywise. I tried setting up a Netgear for a friend once and couldn't get two to work. Finally, I've found Buffalo routers to be the most reliable. Unfortunately, you can't get them now because they're being used as a test case that will extend to other router manufacturers if they lose.<br><br>
The GUI for initial setup with an Airport is nice as compared to the web interface for other routers, Airport prompts for a password for instance. Most routers for home customers I run across have no password. But go off the beaten path with Airport and you still have to know how to route ports.<br><br>One feature I really like about Airport is the printer sharing, that really clicks with my home customers.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
