Need a mac compatible router.
 
I have 2 different routers at my house, and both will lose a connection with a mac. It will work with the Macbook Pro for a day, maybe 2. Then it will lose the connection, and won't connect. I need a relatively cheap router for Mac/PC use, and it needs wireless, obviously.

Got any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Why would you do that when you never found out the root cause of the problem with the other two routers? I bet your going to have the same issues with this new router...

Oh well...

Albo the ideal consumer, haha.

every router works with mac, routers are not OS specific.

It's funny how people think you gotta have an Apple wireless router for a Mac. :rolleyes:

I realize that routers are for both formats, but there is a reason why 30 people have submitted complaints while using the two routers I was using. Also, both routers were 6 years, so it was time to upgrade. And the new router has greater range, and I've been losing signal on the other side. So I've been looking for a router for a while, and since I was losing the connection on the Macbook, so I thought to look for a router that would be more compatible. Of course, I would get ridiculed on nvnews, as always.

Also, the router hasn't come yet, so I tried the setting he had set, and it did nothing. The problem still exists. The router I chose had a review saying that it worked perfectly with his Macbook, and there were no reported problems with it on google. So I decided to spend my money on something I wanted, sue me.
