    I currently have my iMAC hooked up to my wireless router. It is giving me fits and needs to be reset all the time. Is the airport that is in a iMac capable of being the host router? I currently have a wireless printer, Ipad, and wii hooked up to my router. Can this be done with the equipment in a iMac or do I need to get a new router?

    Thank you

    You can connect your iMac to the router via Ethernet (LAN) cable and then go to System Preferences > Sharing > Internet Sharing > Share Ethernet to AirPort (Wireless).
