    Question Sharing Mac & XP using Netgear???
    Hi all

    Hey. I'm a longtime XP user and (due to peer-preasure) I've been converted to buying a Mac. But before I buy one (prefrebly a MacBook), I want to check some things about my wireless connection...

    Our family have a home XP that is linked up to a Netgear wireless router. I want to know weather I will be able to connect my Mac & PC to Netgear, and weather I will be able to connect the two together (to share files, music...etc...)

    Support would realy be apreciated!


    Thanks alot!!!

    Yup, it will work fine. In fact, I have a Mac and 3 PC's on my home network (using Linksys) and the best, most reliable connection to the network and to transfer files between the computers is from the Mac....by a long shot.

    Before you buy one, what do you need/use your computer for?
    Peer pressure is the worst reason to buy a different kind of computer. Just because friends like theirs, doesn't mean you will. Don't go by what they say, go by what you see and feel when you use a Mac. Make sure that it will fit into your needs. Definitely try working with your friends' Macs before you make any sort of commitment and purchase one for yourself.
    If what you have now works fine, then there is absolutely no reason to change it.
