Hi, New to the list. I'm looking for some advise on which cable router to buy. I'm wanting to go with a hard wired setup. I'll be connecting two iMacs to share the internet. Also is there any restrictions on the cable length. I'll be running one line to a upstairs room.
Thanks for any help.

Just about any of them are good these days, mine is 3com and no problems at all. Off the router I have two lines running upstairs one 30' one 50. Downstairs I have a 20', 10' for two computers that are reletivly close and another 50' line going to a hub in the family room. From that hub I have a 15' and a 30' line, one for a computer on a desk and the 30' is the tether for my iBook at the moment. I want to go wireless but at the time I put this in wireless was not affordable and so will use it for now. I have right now 4 pc's and 2 mac's hooked up.

Great, thanks for the input. I've heard that safari doesn't play well with some routers, has anyone noticed this problem.
