    And this is better than simply bringing it home and plugging it in and administering it through a web browser how?

    Perhaps it means that the first thing their tech support says wont be "We don't support Macs, sorry, can't help you".....people do occasionally need tech support, even with relatively simple set-ups

    The last two Linksys wireless routers I've bought came with a CD that had some kind of installation software. I tried it to see what it did but it couldn't figure out my network (which is nothing special) and failed and I ended up manually setting them up via a browser, but I'm guessing it's that software that now runs on (supports) OS X. I'm pretty pleased with a new 802.11n Linksys. It, a Macbook and a Macbook Pro appear to be getting along very well with each other.
