I recently went to my campus computer store, determined to buy an airport extreme base station. My resolve cracked, however, when confronted with the fact that I would need to pay over 100 dollars for an old "non-extreme" airport card for my 800mHz iMac, which made the additional 179 for the airport extreme base station seem slightly pricey. Before I even mentioned price issues, however, the customer service rep. advised me to buy a Netgear WGR 614 B5. Do any of you have experience with either/both of these products? He claimed the Netgear was "complicated" to set up, but ultimately it was a better buy.
