Linksys E1200 Wi-Fi Router N300 Monitor
Works great with Macs
I bought this router after returning a D-Link one that refused to work well with my Macs. The D-link DHCP server, which grants local IP addresses to connected computers, was incompatible with the DHCP client software in OS X. I know a lot about these things, and although I wasted hours trying, I could not make the D-Link work reliably.
As soon as I plugged in the E1200 this problem was solved. I had solid address negotiations between the router and the computers right away. The Linksys also comes with an OS X version of the setup software, which the D-Link did not. Spend a bit more and save a ton of hassle, especially if you're a Mac user.

Easy to Set Up
Hated the DLink we had, so refused to buy another. Bought this instead and so far so good. Much quicker than the dlink.

It was very easy to setup and increased my wireless speed substantially. Unlike some other routers which are not very user friendly in the settings mode this one is very easy to fine tune your router if you want to. I've only had it a few days so we'll see how it stands up but various sites doing online reviews rate it very highly.

I was hesitant to purchase a wireless router as I had heard they can be troublesome to set up. I purchased the Linksys E1200 because the reviews were good and the price was reasonable. The setup was so easy, just pop in the disc and follow the prompts on the screen. Had I known it would be this simple I would have gone wireless a long time ago.
