Just wanted to post this hoping it would help someone else. I had bought a Netgear router before I got my macbook last year. Everyone kept telling me a router is a router. It had the n at the end of it so it was a newer model. But I struggled with slow internet for a year. I even paid the $10 extra to get the fastest internet Comcast had. We also had a pc hooked up to the modem. I finally carried by mac in the apple store and he said I had to have a dual router. I went ahead and bought the Airport Extreme from Amazon. Five minute hookup and I have almost instant response on the internet on mac and iphone. Unbelievable difference. If only someone had told me a year ago.
