    Looking for a new router
    NETGEAR - Wireless-N Router - WNR2000-100NAS

    http://www.netgear.com/Products/Rout...s/WNR834B.aspx

    Which router will work best with my xbox 360? and also be compatible with my mac? I am getting the newest network adapter for my xbox so it will work with Wireless N and I also see that it is backwards compatible, does that mean it will work will all of my current Wireless-G products?

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't buy a Netgear anything. Way too many horror stories there.

    Yes, any 802.11 device will work just fine. My recommendation would be a D-Link DIR-655.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Netgear's can be problematic. Some work well but others have many issues. This one 54G Netgear that at one point I recommended to a friend locks up daily when it gets hot here (like 90º or so) and he has to put a fan right on the router to keep it from not hard locking. Same with the 54g Netgear I have here at my house. All summer long it locks every few days. I just use it as an access point and not a router. I would never want to depend on a router that locked that much!

    If you read a lot of reviews on the net, they say that Netgear also has poor tech support.

    CWA's recommendation is a good one. Great router.

    +1 on the DIR-655. I have had one since the day it released and have not had one issue with it. It was pricier than all of the others at the time, but well worth it IMO.
