So i'm getting a macbook in a few days and i was wonderin if the wireless on the mac works with a wireless router (linksys). I was watching those mac tutorial videos and they show this Airport thing. Do you need that airport device if you have a wireless router?

I'm on the pavement, thinkin' 'bout the government.

No, you don't need an Airport, the only reason they show that in the Apple commercials is that it's an Apple product.

Macs just work, remember?
I'm on a macbook as we speak. And the Airport device comes pre-installed. I live in an apartment complex which is convenient, cause that means free wireless internet from the people who are too dense to block me with a password. The Airport will automatically detect networks for you to get to the internet from. I'm on a linksys network right now (not mine obviously), so you won't have any problems.
Wi-Fi is Wi-Fi. You'll be fine.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?
