    In the market for a new wireless router, and i'd like to get some advice on what you all use. Don't need anything with massive range, everything that connects wirelessly is within 20-30 feet. We have an iMac, 3rd Gen iPad, and a PS3 connected.

    Considering an Airport Express. If anyone has had a good experience with it or any other wireless router in particular, let me know. Thanks!

    I have used mine for about 6 months and love it. its pretty darn fast. If you don't NEED it though I would go with any dual band router.

    It sounds like the express would be a perfect fit for you.

    I'd get something with more ethernet ports, especially with the iMac and PS3. But to each their own.

    Unless you're planning to use any of the features that Apple routers have (such as the super friendly setup or airplay) ... just get a 'normal' Netgear router or something and you'll be fine.
