    I have a macbook pro and a new macbook. Plz could you recommend me a wireless router.. I just need it for wireless internet in my house. My house is a bit big so will require a router with good range.

    Apple Airport Extreme Base Station has excellent range and you get the added benefit of wireless n between the two laptops.

    If your house is bigger, then I recommend you look at wireless N routers. If you can afford the new airport extreme from Apple, that would work the best. Otherwise Linksys is ok and Netgear is ok, I haven't had experience with other brands though.

    i second the apple airport router, plus you can also plug your printer into it and print wirelessly from any of your computers. i wished i had one but i have dsl and it came bundled with this modem/router hybrid thing that doesn't allow me to attach another router. :(

    I definately do reccomend the apple airport extreme. If you cant/wont get that then either a Linksys or a Belkin. (NEVER a dlink)

    In a Hell predominately of my own making
    A vote for the Belkin N1 ( here. Nothing wrong with the others, but this is the unit I ended up with, and it's reliable, been bulletproof, and works with the Xbox360 wirelessly.

    No USB out for printers/storage, but I have a networked printer anyway, and share the mass storage with the desktop.
