Hello, I am moving to a new place that's a basement apartment. I brought over my macbook to see if it could catch any wireless signals and not one network popped up. The new landlords said if I need I could get a modem installed at my own expense, but after talking to optimum people, they mentioned that if I buy a wireless router and hook it up to their modem upstairs I could use their wifi network at no additional charge (the landlords already have the cable internet using a modem). I need one that is compatible with my macbook unibody (seems apparently macbooks have issues with wireless connectivity) and is fast with a wide range since I'll be downstairs from it, and for that matter, underground. --Oh and that is at the very most $80 maybe. I've never bought or have any idea about wireless routers. I'm a renter and I've always shared signal from the landlords. This will be the first time I have to set one up myself and make sure it works fine. Any suggestions are very very welcome. I was thinking of Linksys and I found a few online at for 80 or less. Apparently they work with macs but I want to make sure it'll reach down where I am. It's not a big house and it's just one level so I'll be below the router. Linksys WRT160N or WRT54G2 NOTE** Is the only way I am going to be able to get a good signal down at the basement for my ONE macbook (upstairs they just have one desktop using ethernet cable) if I spend the money on an Airport Extreme Base Station? Or do I have a chance of being ok with a Linksys? Side note, did anyone think it was odd that NOT 1 wireless network was picked up at all? Not even locked up networks. Just nothing. Any assistance would be highly appreciated! I really don't want to risk buying something that will not work for my specifications.
