    New imac owner with router Question
    In less than 2 days I will own my first imac.

    I currently have a dlink airplus extreme G wireless router.

    This might be a dumb question, bear in mind I am in pre newbie stage with imac

    here are my imac specs


    * 1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 1x1GB
    * 250GB Serial ATA Drive
    * SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    * Apple Mighty Mouse
    * Apple Keyboard (English) + Mac OS X
    * Accessory kit
    * 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    * ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT with 128MB memory
    * 20-inch glossy widescreen LCD
    * AirPort Extreme
    * Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR

    How much better served would I be to go buy a 802.11n wireless router. If so what would one recommend?

    I thank you all for any help provided...

    I bought the airport extreme and have had no problems with it. I connect a linux/xp/macbook/iMac with it. I also have an external hd and two printers shared through it.

    Are you transferring large files on a LAN? If not then you have no need for a N-spec router, and by large files I mean 10+GB in size.
