Hi there - If you don't go with the Airport base station, but want to connect a Mac with a Windows system and a DSL line, what wireless hub do you recommend that works well with airport?
Thanks for any input

SMC is the best for the money.
Ask here first about any other brands.

I just recently got the Netgear MR814. This thing is definitely NOT small, so you better not mind having something rather large floating around your desk or house. It comes with a stand so you can perch it vertically, and the design is very sexy. Without a doubt, this is the most nicely designed wireless router I've seen. Perfect match for Apple hardware. Very simple browser-based configuration. No software to install. I had one tech support call I needed to make and the experience was oustanding. I've never encountered tech support this knowledgeble or helpful. Performance seems fine, but I really have nothing to compare it with. My place is small, so I can't comment on range. There's a review on ZD worth reading:
It goes for around $100 and there's a $30 rebate.

Might be a typo. It says the router is both 59.99 and 39.99
