I have always gotten the $50-$70 linksys routers, but they all seem to wear out or something after about a year. (Can a router really wear out? It doesn't have moving parts) My current one drops connections all the time and it takes multiple resets to get an ip address. When i plug my powermac into the wall it gets an IP immediately. So I guess I need a new router. Should I get an Airport? They are way more expensive than a linksys and I did have a bad experience with a Graphite Airport(never worked with 10.1). However, if the airport will last a few years instead of 6-12 months, It would be worth it. I assume that the airport is superior quality to a linksys, but is it cost effective to get a nice router that costs over twice what a linksys costs? Do y'all ever have problems using an airport with a DHCP internet connection. I just got a macbook, so I doubt I would be upgrading to a new 802.11 standard any time soon, plus 802.11n should be fast enough for any internet I can get. Thanks for any advice!
