    Help. Our old netgear router seems to be on it's way out.
    We ve got a Macbook, iPad, iPhones, PC etc so thinking of getting AirPort Extreme: but it doesn't have a modem, right? So which one should I get?
    Or would another router/modem do a good enough job? and if so, any recommendations?
    Thanks.
    ps I'm new here. What's a switcher? Am I in the wrong place?

    Modems are usually supplied by your provider some have a wireless router built in.
    More info please what provider and models of current gear (router and modem)
    Switcher is someone that has been using another OS such as Windows and Linux and
    has decided to switch or add a Mac for their needs.
    You probably should have put this in Internet Networking and Wireless but at this point don't crosspost and let a Mod decide.

    I am on cable and I find the Cisco-Linksys Maximum Performance E4200 Dual-Band N Router works well for my wireless needs and I use this rather than the Virgin superhub for wireless. It copes with my NAS and sonos system with out a glitch

    Specs:
    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.10.5
    Another vote for Linskys modem/router 802.11N.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I too own a e4200 linksys and it has been working fine with my macbook,iPhones and iPods. However I can't same the same about my samsung UN55C8000 TV and C6900 Samsung Blu-ray player.They are not compatible with these router, I've tried and everything to try to make it work with no success. So if you own any devices as the ones mentioned, Make sure they are compatible with 802.11N bands.

    Ok, this is killing me. What does "lord" as the title have to do with the content of the original post? (Always a good idea for there to be a relationship between the two...)

    I know that some folks use the term "LORD" when they're really frustrated with something...so maybe this is the meaning.

    A better or more descriptive thread title could have been used.

    "Oh lord" or "good lord" are the usual of course many of us use more "spicey" words when realy frustrated I think - but each to their own
