which wireless router for pc and macbook

  pupski 12:06 04 Oct 2007

I have broadband provided by Virgin (previously ntl) I think it is cable(or digital) as it seperate to the phone and tv. I currently have a Linksys router and that works fine with the pc and two laptops.

The problem is my son has just boght a new macbook and he can't connect to broadband via the Linksys router. We have tried everything, going through lots of technical stuff on the phone with both Linksys and Apple so we have come to the conclusion that we need a new router.

Does anyone have any idea what router would work successfully with all our computers?

I have the same problem and have gone through the same stages listed above and I still cannot get an ip address on my macbook :(

If I manually enter the addresses it tells me I have a self-assigned ip address but no it can't connect to the internet. What is strange is that if I connect an ethernet cable up to the router directly, I can't ping the router address....

any ideas gratefully received
