Wireless Router
« on: March 20, 2013, 01:20:02 AM »
I have a TWO PC's connected to my router as well as my ooma phone.  I also enjoy having my S3 and laptop on Wifi.  Unfortunately my brand new router is horrible.  I currently have a Linksys E1500 Wireless-N Router with SpeedBoost.  It is horrible.

What would you recommend for a router.  I heard that the apple routers are amazing, but I have a PC does that make a difference and is it worth the price?

Thanks in advance

Yes, Apple routers are great. And they will work perfectly fine with your PC. Get the Airport Express. $95. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008ALA2RC/?tag=cl03f-20
An added bonus is that you will have Airplay if you have any iDevices.

Apple routers are the one Apple product which are not overrrated at all and are worth the price. Enjoy!  :)

Highly doubt they'll take it back. Maybe you can get some trade in value.
