Routers are not dependent on the version of Mac OS X or Linux, or Windows, or IOS or any other OS you are running on your computers, pads, or Phones.
If you killed your Router, it was not the upgrade to 10.9 Mavericks that did it.
The new Apple Routers are very nice, and support a higher-bandwidth protocol 802.11ac (when used with NEW Macs).Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

Thanks I'm sure that's the case but the online help groups in both apple and linksys are full of folks complaining about not having wifi after upgrading to 10.9.

Some of those folks have had the WiFi die in their Macs because configuration problem were carried forward from previous versions.
That is not a dead router, that is a Mac problem. And the fix is, to use
System preferences > Network > WiFi > (Assist me) > Assistant ...
... and set it up again from scratch, INCLUDING a new "Location".
Close the window and save changes when complete.

What I use and love: Netgear R6200 (no longer top of the line but gets through brick and maintains 35Mb signal at 30 ft. and is $100 less than when I bought it seems so short a time ago.
I don't (Mac Pro 1,1) run 10.9 which while I can find issues wth some Macs and wifi and with Apple routers, I would look at what you use for your Mac Pro to add wireless which might.

Apple's software catches up with its hardware, improving on 10.8.5.

I too experienced the same problem after upgrading to 10.9 though. the same router works fine if I only access with my phone if I turnoff wifi of my mac Book osx.

When you talk about routers, whether Apple or Netgear, there are always firmware updates, though I've seen where Apple will stop with some "older" products and no longer, and they do improve OS and new standards support for various features.
