    Do I HAVE to use AirPort with my Mac?
    I just got a macbook. I have a Dlink router. Should i use mac's airport instead to get wireless internet connection? What would be faster/better?

    You can use the Dlink just fine.

    If you're Dlink isn't 802.11n and it's a new macbook then the 802.11n Airports would be faster... but it's up to you really, you're Dlink will work just great.

    Like others have said, the Dlink should be fine. What model is it? Just curious. Some older Dlinks had the tendency to crash a lot.
