need recommendation for new wireless home network

I need a reliable solution for our networking dilemna. I want to connect a desktop computer running SUSE 9.2 through the LAN port and 2 laptops running Windows 2003 and a Mac iBook G4 via wireless. What's a good router to do the job and where can I get the necessary drivers and setup info?

Welcome to LQ!

You can use Linksys routers with confidence.

The WRT54G is reliable, has NAT and SPI, and you set it
up with a configuration system you reach through your
web browser. No need for any drivers with Linux.

Yup, until recently when I had to go back to dial-up, that was what we had and it worked very well, along with a cable modem. I was wired but but it worked very well.

Make sure that if you use wireless that the card is supported without having to buy some weird drivers. I think Linksys drivers is available though in the kernel.
