Hi everyone...

wasn't sure what forum to post this in, but since it's hardware-related for my mac system, this was my best guess.

Anyway...

I mainly work from home and push large files to and from the internet via my cable modem. For the next few months I have to move my office away from my cable connection (not too far but one floor up) so I figure it's time to beef up my wireless network.

I know nothing about networking, other than the fact that my router is 802.really.old, which is fine for my usually-minimal wireless requirements. I deal with some large files and am looking for recommendations for what to buy to improve my situation. I assume I just need a faster better router, but I have no idea how to judge them, I don't even know what 802.# is best these days. I do know pretty much anything new will be an improvement, but I'd still like to feel like I was buying decent equipment at a decent price.

Thanks in advance!

[Mike MacKenzie] "I know nothing about networking,"

Apple wireless routers are the easiest ones out there to set up and maintain.



There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!
