    Default Looking for a new wireless router.

    And I really haven't any idea what to look for. It is for home use only (Mac, xBox 360, Apple TV, Cell Phones and a future tablet), and I get terrible signal strength with my current one. I don't want to spend more than $200 bucks either. Any suggestions or opinions? Thanks.

    Apple airport extreme $179 and you won't regret it, especially if you're already using apple products.

    Didn't even think to look at apple's site. Are you using it? Looks like it should be perfect.

    Yup, I even bought one for my parents house. In 4 years of owning one I've only had to reboot it twice. I was re-booting that netgear bull**** at least every other day. You'll be glad you bought one.

    I have an Apple AirPort base station that's at least 6 years old and it still works. Worth the investment.

    Default Asus

    You can get a pretty solid Asus router for under a hundo on Amazon. Dd-wrt friendly in case you need to increase the TX power. I've got two rt n12's, one as a bridge, and have no issues with signal strength.
