    I'm interested in buying a MacBook, but I'm unsure how to use it with my wireless network. I currently have a PC with a cable modem and Linksys Wireless G router. I'm wondering if the MacBook is compatible with the network, if not how to I get it all to work? Thanks in advance!

    Your MacBook will connect seamlessly to the router. Probably more easily than your PC if you have security enabled (which you should).

    Wireless networking should not be a problem.

    If your network is broadcasting its SSID, just pick it from the list:

    If it doesn't broadcast SSID (called closed network in the Mac world), choose "Other..." from the menu above and just type in your network name, choose the right encryption method and type your password:

    It should be very easy... :)
