Would suggest you read posts in the Airport and Networking section. People like whatever has worked for them.
You can read one of mine on a Linsys router here - Airport is rubbish!

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Apple has two options. The pictured one is the Airport Extreme. The other is the Airport Express. The difference in the two is that the Extreme will work with dial up has a further range. The Express only works with broadband (cable, DSL) but also has a feature that you can plug in powered speakers to the unit and stream your songs from iTunes with no wires to your computer. They will both work with Mac and windows individually or in a combined network. I use the express with my iBook (saving for a MacBook Pro and an iMac). Very simple and works real well.
