I was helping a friend yesterday who purchased a new Macbook Pro (she has a G5 as her desktop) She is using DSL and has a Telus supplied combo DSL Modem/Router which to me seems like a piece of junk

Her husband unfortunately uses Windows.

Range, signal strength and speed for the wireless is dismal. I have an extra Airport Extreme Base Station I could give them and I guess I would have to get a DSL Modem as well.

What is the best combo that people can suggest? Should I just get her a DSL Modem/Router combo from Linksys or someone like that? It could too expensive to purchase DSL Modem and the AEBS as well as taking up more space.

Does the router have an ethernet port? You could jack an Airport Express into it...
