    I just got an internet satellite connection which uses the ethernet port on my new Mac Mini. I'd like to connect my trusty old Elite post script printer which also uses an ethernet port and I'm told I should get a new router and come from the port on my new modem, to the router.
    What kind (wired) of router is best for this?
    Thanks!

    D-Link makes a pretty good one. There are lots out there. Almost all have ethernet ports. If you're gonna get a router you might as well get one that has wireless 802.11n on it.

    Well, you asked for the best, not for the easiest or consumer-friendliest, so my answers are:

    1. Mikrotik
    2. Cisco

    I am a huge fan of the Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato firmware. It makes for a dirt cheap, rock solid device with the best GUI of any router I've ever seen at any price.
