    Which Router?
    I need a router this summer and I have pretty much ruled the Apple Airport Extreme out due to the high cost. I have a new MacBook and I will be living with my parents for two months this summer. My parents have Verizon DSL and a Dell computer. I suppose this doesn't really matter. Anyways, which router would you recommend? The house is two stories and I would like to get reception everywhere within. Although my MB has 802.11n, I don't suppose getting an "n" router would be necessary, right? I came across this list here but can't really narrow it down. Thanks for your input!

    Specs:
    MacBook black, Intel C2D 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 320GB WD Scorpio HD
    My MB has 802.11n but I use a D-Link router that only has 802.11g and it works fine. What "n" does based on the info from one of the threads is that it has further distance coverage. If the price is not that much, get the "n" router.

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    'n' is also capable of much faster speeds, up to 248Mb/s, compared to 54Mb/s in the 'g' standard.
