    Need recommendation on computer router.

    We are going to have an wireless internet modem installed soon. Antenna on roof to access point on top of grain elevator 4 miles away.

    They supply the modem, we need to supply a router.

    Heard good things about Apple Airport.

    Any recommendations?
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Linksys

    I'm not wireless, but I use a Linksys (by Cisco) WRT120N "Wireless-N Home" router. Easy setup, zero issues for years.

    I've have had several and I have given some of them to my children so I could connect at their houses (because I wanted "better" but I couldn't tell any difference). I've bought Netgear and Linksys and some were refurbished. Most ran from $12 to $30+ and they all work fine without any glitches. I figure I don't need to spend a ton on a router when I can run 3 computers and a wireless printer throughout my entire house (2 story 100X34) with no issues. I got some from newegg.com and others from E-Bay.

    Next thing we know, Bud is going to start an oil thread.

    I like my Airport Extreme. Ours has handled three computers, Netflix and a couple of phones/iPods simultaneously without complaining. If I have my iPod with me when walking home, it picks up the router over a block away.

    YMMV
