    Currently I have a MacBook Pro and an Airport Extreme Express. I am looking to buy a new router, and cant decide between the Airport Extreme or the Netgear WNDR3700. Which would you recommend?

    Airport Extreme, incredibly easy setup, dual channel, and creating wireless networks for laptops and iPhones take just seconds.

    Also really easy to network an HDD or printer to.

    On the AEBS, are you able to forward ports?

    Absolutely, it supports Port Forwarding, Port Mapping, MobileMe and Back to My Mac and IPv6 and a host of other options.

    Netgear. That's the top N router out there. The Airport has some serious radio design flaws. Smallnetbuilder has reviews of them with performance numbers.

    Netgear. I have owned both.

    Just like the previous poster said. It has serious radio flaws. (sad to say)
