    Hi everyone,

    I have a broadband (cable) connection and for the first time I would like to have wireless internet in my home. I was wondering what hardwares and softwares I need to buy to make this happen.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    That's it? Nothing else? Is there one in particular (mac friendly) that you would recommend? Thanks for the help.

    Most routers available these days are compatible with Mac, so there shouldn't be a problem. I also think that the AirPort Express would be a suitable router for your home network. A few factors to consider is the size of your house and what your walls are made of. If your walls are double brick, then the signal may not extend very far around your house. If that's the case, then the AirPort Extreme Base Station would be the most suitable router as it can cover a larger space for wireless networking and can host up to 50 people.
