Here's the scoop. I have a couple iPhones and recently purchased a Mac Mini so I am a semi convert over to Apple. My wireless in the house is ok but a couple of devices are having problems with it. Plus, it's only G. Most everything in the house is N. Maybe one thing isn't. Now, I also have FIOS internet & tv which means I cannot replace my router with my own. It will foul up the cable boxes and I am not down with doing all these half cocked ghetto rigged setups. It's just asking for problems. What I need opinions on - is the Airport Etreme fast as far as throughput goes? I asked my mac friend and he recommended the WNDR3700 as it got better ratings and has faster throughput. Anything I get, will basically be just a glorified access point because of the FIOS router. So what I buy won't be a router right now. Maybe later, I don't know. As of now, just an AP. Which one is better? Are they both the same as far as speed goes? I know the Netgear is going to have more features but I really don't need all that. I do game but not hard core. We have 3 xbox's, 2 ps3's, 7 pc's and 4 smart phones. I just don't know what to do honestly. I loved the simplicity of the Airport Extreme and how Apple has made it simple to use and expand if I need to with the airport express. I like that feature and how I can plug it in and basically have a network jack anywhere I want. I love it. I ordered the Netgear but I just don't know right now and could really use some helpful advice. My concern is speed for all wireless devices and ease of use. Can the Airport be used JUST as an access point or no? Any info would greatly be appreciated!
