    All routers should work well with your systems. I use a Linksys which works great with my PC and iMac.

    "AirPort" is simply Apple's name for 802.11x WiFi.

    Don't skimp on quality. I've had some frustrating experiences with cheap routers - go for something like netgear, linksys or apple airport.

    On a network with about 6+ computers, both Mac/PC, I use an Airport Extreme Base Station and an Airport Express at my entertainment center for Xbox360/PS2 network connectivity. I have never had any problems with them, since I set them up over a year ago I've never had to touch them.

    One thing I did have to do was replace my cordless phones with 5.4GHz ones, everytime someone would use the phone I would get bumped offline or get a nasty speed decrease no matter what channel I was using. Once I got the 5.4 GHz, the problem went away.
