    Hi all.

    I'm planning on buying a MBP sometime in the near future, but right now I'm looking to update my old wireless Netgear router which doesn't support GigE and is only 802.11g. I'm looking to upgrade to a Wireless-N router, however I was reading through the MBP's communication specs, and I'm now wondering if 802.11n is only supported with an AirPort Extreme. Is this the case, or will the MBP run 802.11n with any Wireless-N router?

    Also, if the latter is the case, does anyone have any suggestions for a relatively inexpensive Wireless-N router that would work well with a MBP (wireless), a wired PC, and perhaps a wired WD network drive? I don't need anything too fancy.

    Any wireless N router will do.

    I am extremely partial to the Airport extreme tho, so that's definitely what I'd recommend.
