    Need a good wireless router
    Ok so I just made the leap from PC to mac and went with the 27 incher(love it by the way). I'm looking for a good wireless router for my apartment. I just need it for wifi on my iPhone when at home and for xbox live. My old d-link one has been nothing but problems. I would like to hear what people have to say about the express and if it's any good or if I should go for the extreme oraid I'm better off with a third party router...

    It's a pretty popular question. There seems to be one answer that has ruled the responses here for about 2 years now.

    DLink DIR-655 for an N Router and if you are on a budget and do not mind Wireless G, find a Linksys WRT-54GL. Be sure it's the GL model.

    The Apple Airport Extreme is a decent and stable router but way overpriced for what it does.
