    In my search of a new wireless router, I was comparing the prices of a few places and found this on Amazon:

    D-Link DIR-655 Extreme N Gigabit Wireless Router
    Regular Price:$124.99
    Sale Price: $64.99 + $20 Amazon Gift Card
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&camp=201-233-2-20-01&creativeASIN=B0211XGQLI

    D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N Router, 4-Port
    Regular Price: $59.99
    Sale Price: $29.99
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&camp=201-213-7-20-01&creativeASIN=B0611XGQLI

    D-Link DIR-601 Wireless-N 150 Home Router
    Regular Price: $49.99
    Sale Price: $22.08

    What I want to know is: are these Mac-friendly? I like the price, but don't want to deal with compatibility issues.

    Thanks! :)

    Belkin is the only major brand that consistently has issues with Apple products.

    D-Link makes good routers. But be sure to perform a firmware upgrade as soon as you get it. They are infamous for needing one. After that they are quite good. I've set up the 655 on an all Mac network before and it performed quite well.

    However, the range did not come anywhere close to the 4th gen Airport Extreme I replaced it with at a customers house.

    Don't you mean with every product.
