Hi everybody. I’ve never been good at networking, so I need some help When I got my contract with Telefonica to get internet access, it included this router (Comtrend 536+): However, for some reason, wireless access (g) never worked properly with my first gen Macbook (wifi g) nor my Santa Rosa MacBook Pro (wifi n). It often drops the wireless signal for no apparent reason, for days or weeks. Sometimes resetting it works, other times it doesn’t. The thing is, I cannot ask for an exchange because one of my cats used to chew the antenna when we were out, so it has lots of dents on it (see picture) Ethernet access has always worked, but I need to work upstairs, and don’t want to run cables everywhere. If I get another router, should these issues be solved? Also, I’d like to be able to make a real network. My current router only allows me to get access to the internet, but not to transfer data between the computers on the network. What do I need to share files between several computers? I have a MacBook Pro (last gen), an iMac (last gen) and a PC. Is the Airport Extreme Base Station the answer to my needs? Is it only a router or does it also act as a switch to create a network? I’m really sorry, but networking has never been my favorite part. Somehow, I’ve always get things to work, but with this wifi drops issue, I’d like to start from scratch and buy, if necessary, the AEBS Thanks for your help.
