    I need some Wireless Router Advice!
    « on: August 31, 2013, 08:23:35 AM »
    I am currently building a network in my home office which will span a few rooms. I have multiple devices a couple PC's, a wireless printer and a Macbook. I have built several wireless networks in the past which only consisted of PC's so adding this Mac to the mix is new. I was curious what were some good recommendations you guys might have for me?

    I really do appreciate the time.

    P.S. I had been looking at the Mac Airport Extreme but my searching has yielded not much in how it meshes with PC base systems.

      Hi there,

      How do you plan to use the Macbook within the network?

      Could you also list all the devices that will be in your network please with specifications.

      Thanks,
      B2 :)

      There is really no difference when setting up a network if there is a mac or not, it will connect just like a PC.  Macs can also access Samba shares and use Active Directory if you are using that.
