Hey Guys. In your opinion, what is the best wireless router available for macs?
Thanks in advance.
Airport Extreme or D-Link 655
Any 802.11 g or n router will work.
I've been using the same Linksys wireless router for the past couple of years and I haven't had any problems with it. I recommend Linksys.
Apple extreme is good.
I think I need a router to connect my imac, a PC in the other room and my xbox 360. But last time I tried connecting my mac and the pc it would work at first then I couldn't get on the internet on the mac
I think I'm going to go with the Airport Extreme router. Thanks a lot guys.
Any 802.11g router will work, but so far my experience has been that very few (as in none other than the Airport Extreme) work well for 802.11n.
Reliability has always been great with Airport Extreme, but the throughput was dismal on the last UFO version. I'd imagine the new one is great, however, as it has 802.11n.
whats an 802.11?
Any ratified N will work.
Google is your friend.
We use the Netgear WNR854T Generation "N"ext Wireless router with (4) full GigE ports and up 300MB wireless. It has worked flawlessly for months and supports a mixed PC and Mac environment. Both Macs are N enabled and work very well. Their wireless performance is on par or better than the PCs that are still on 100MB wired connections.
It's easily the Linksys wrt54gl, as it can be modded with DD-WRT to give it a much better feature set than any other router on the market.
Airport Extreme or Zyxel X550 or Buffalo G-mimo (which can also be modded)
If you are in the UK, go with BT they do a great free wireless router
The Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 is runs the same chipset and can also be modifed with DD-WRT(or tomato etc). Imo a better router: cheaper, better signal, less lock ups and looks a sexy piece of kit.
