    Ok i'm back again with a PS3 question,
    Outline of the situation:
    My ISP is Virgin Media (cable), the modem is wired to the mac pro via Ethernet cable, What i want is to use a Router and keep the Mac connected via Cable, The PS3 will be connecting wirelessly (already updated it wired)

    Now the question:
    Which Cable Router would be a Good Choice ive read about several but want some idea's from users, I'm not looking at spending a fortune as i only spend about 8-10 hours a week gaming, any Cable Router advice would be greatly received, I did have a look round PC world for Idea's but the sales staff keep pestering me,

    tar ;)

    Practically anything labelled as a cable router will do the job.

    An airport would be nice, but the PS3 is only capable of B&G networks not N. So if you did buy an airport it would have to operate in mixed mode.

    If everything is pretty close together you could forgo wireless altogether and just buy a wired router. Then it'll be really cheap, say £25.

    Personally have a love for zyxel for pure simplicity and reliability. However i can't say i've tried their cable router, rather have used their adsl models.

    Here's another cheap alternative from netgear.
