I just bought an Apple TV. I want to improve the performance of the syncing and streaming so I am thinking of getting another wifi router and use it only for the Apple TV. ( The rest of the family is getting poor wifi response while the TV syncs or streams. )

My existing wifi setup is "G" and the dedicated link to the apple will be the 802.11n. Any suggestions for a unit that plays well with the Apple TV?

    As an Apple product, I guess you can't really go wrong with an airport extreme.

    In fact, if you go with the Airport Extreme, its dual band and you might not need your other, or use the other to extend the g signal if wanted.

    Netgear DG834n modem/router works great for me, but I had it prior to AppleTV.

    Dare say I might go the Apple route if I didn't have one.

    I was getting 11mb/s transfers between my iMac and my ATV when I used a Linksys G router. I upgraded to a Linksys N router and it got no better.

    I then tried an Apple Extreme with dual bands. I set up a 5Ghz 'N' network, and I now sync at about 50mb/s. I'm much happier with this.

    You can't go wrong with an airport extreme I really like mine. And like was said above its dual band and very fast. The signal from it is outstanding and you also get the usb nas drive option for network drive as well
