    Hey all,

    New member. Question: If I had a Dell (h8ed) desktop and a Linksys router, then if I bought a MacBook, will the Wifi in the MacBook be able to connect itself to the signal from the router in my house?

    Or do I need to replace the Linksys with an AirPort and then connect the Airport to the Windows (h8ed) PC?

    Thanks in advance.

    Airport is just Apple's name for 802.11 wireless. The Macbook will work fine with the Linksys you've already got. In fact, I just ordered a Linksys wireless router today for use with my 3 Macs (and no PCs).
