My old one died last year. I remembered what a pain it was to set up - having to log in to the manufacturer’s site to link it up. I bought a Netgear N600 dual band wireless router. It was unbelievably easy to set up. We use both Macs and PCs with it. It’s very fast. Great range - we have a two story home with a basement. My office is in the basement and that’s were the router is. I can use my laptop from any room in the house.
I have both Mac and PCs. but mostly several PCs running XP, Vista and Win7. The Internet connection never seemed slow when the modem was working OK, but maybe I just didn’t realize it could be faster.
Ease of setup would certainly be nice. Don’t want to call up “Steve” in India.
