I'm giving my G4 iMac to my brother and nieces and they're on Bigpond broadband. What's the cheapest yet most reliable wifi modem I can get that'll enable hassle-free hookup . . . ?

Cheers,

Andrew

I think this is the one I have installed:

DG834GV - NETGEAR.com (http://www.netgear.com.au/Products/RoutersandGateways/WirelessGRouters/DG834GVB.aspx)

It's pretty cheap, yet has quite a lot of features.

I've used it for my PowerBook and PowerMac and they have worked flawlessly.

Maybe they should talk to BigPond. My Dad is with them and a couple of months ago they sent out a free, already set up, wireless modem/router, without him ordering it.

Um, is $200+ cheap for a modem??

$73 - $105 :

I've set up heaps of these - they're good stuff.
Very easy to setup and work very reliably.
By the way, you said Bigpond Broadband - do you mean cable?

I have stayed at a friends place who had a BigPond Wireless modem and bit torrent wouldn't work... Only if you are into that.
