The AirPort Express is by far the best wireless router for anyone in the Apple ecosystem and is a great choice for nearly everyone else as well. It’s definitely priced higher than similarly spec’d wireless N routers, but this is a case where paying “Apple tax” is worth it.
Amazon has it on sale for $79 with free shipping, which is $20 below its regular price.
Use it to setup a wireless network from the easy-to-use AirPort iOS app, print wirelessly, or AirPlay music to wired speakers. I’ve had one for years now and can’t remember the last time I had to reboot it. I know this phrase is overused, but it really does “just work,” which can’t be said for many of the headache-inducing budget routers out there.
If you don’t mind going refurbished, Apple sells an AirPort Express for $65 shipped and has the best deals for AirPort Extreme ($129) and Time Capsules (from $199).

Update: Newegg is now offering the Netgear N900 Wireless Router (model WNDR4700) for $10 less at $59.99 shipped with code EMCPEPW77.
Amazon offers the Netgear Centria N900 Dual-Band Gigabit Wireless Router (model WNDR4700) for $69.99 with free shipping. That’s a savings of $180 off the original MSRP, about 30% below its typical street price, and the best deal we have ever seen. It has a robust feature-set including a 3.5-inch hard drive bay for easy storage expansion, iOS/Android apps to download and play media from any internet connection, USB 3.0, and a handy SD card backup tool. Rated 3.7 out of 5 stars by Amazon reviewers.
The Netgear Centria is a nice midrange wireless router/network attached-server option for Mac users and people in a mixed Mac/PC environment. The printing and setup complexity is easily outweighed by its much broader feature set. Things like faster USB 3 connections, SD Card access, easy hard drive upgrades, iOS app/printing, DLNA and Windows compatibility push it over the Time Capsule.
We recommend the Western Digital Red hard drives for all NAS setups.
Please note this router’s built-in software cannot properly format drives greater than 2TB. To use a larger drive you must format it before installing it in this router. expand full story
