I currently use Time Warner for cable, phone and internet. Since I will be getting a new MacBook, I contacted the Time Warner for access to the internet and I told them that I wanted a wifi router. I thought that they would simply provide me with a free router, but to my surprise they wanted to charge me an additional $5+ change per month. For a few bucks, I could buy my own router but then I noticed their modem has no additional ports. I don't know whether I should give them the cash or try to negotiate with a supervisor with customer service for a free router. Any suggestions and I was also wondering whether I should get the airport extreme base station for the imac and printer. Thanks for the input.
