Hello everyone, just a quick question...does anyone know of a wireless router alternative to Airport which supports macintosh Ibooks?

Im in the UK using Telewest Broadband 1Mbit line (cable modem) and i wanted to extend my connection wirelessly for my upcoming iBook.

As a student I can get Airport Extreme for £78...being broke im looking for a much more cheaper alternative..i dont really need Airtunes..just wireless internet.

Thanks

linksys is also a dependable brand.... but any wireless b/g router should work just fine

DLINK is very known for being highly compatible with Mac, without signal failure and such. I recommend the DLINK DI-524 or the DLINK DI-624

i second the dlink. they are pretty mac friendly, and are decent little routers. not always the longest lasting from what i've heard, but mine have lived wicked long so far.

I use an Actiontec one. It's so old, yet it has some really cool experimental features. Like USB and FireWire ports (yes, that's right. A router that allows your Mac to use one of the rubbishy BT DSL modems). A PCMCIA slot, for attaching certain supported cards. Ethereal built in. An ASCII Error option (that makes it display error messages over Telnet in ASCII art :D)
