    Any wireless router is compatible as long as it is of the .11b or .11g standard.

    All of them. By using the term Wi-Fi in your question you answered it. If it's Wi-Fi certified they'll work together.

    i read on some website once that people complained of linksys having horrible reception with their MACs so i just wanted to find out before i buy a new router.
    I guess I can put up my current Netgear RP614 v2 in the FS/FT section now.

    I have a Linksys WRT54G v2.2.
    I don't like it at all. The third-party firmware is nice, but the reception isn't that great.

    Also, it drops connections like they're hot. Like if I'm transfering files over WiFi, it will just crap out after about 30-50 MB, and require a reset. It seems to work fine for normal use, but it doesnt like file transfers over WiFi one bit.

    So it's going back to Best Buy tomorrow morning, and I'm going to pickup a DLink DI-524 and try one out. I don't think it could be worse.
