Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station ( Winter 2009)

The AirPort Extreme Base Station is a great wireless router for Mac or novice users who need something that's simple, nice-looking, and works well for their homes. Savvy Windows users will find many other alternatives that offer a lot more features for their bucks.

Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station ( draft 802.11n)

The Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station is a solid router that keeps up with the Draft N competition. Unfortunately, we've yet to test a Draft N router that lives up to the promise of 802.11n. As with the rest of the .11n routers we've tested, we advise you postpone your purchase until the spec is finalized.

Linksys WPS54GU2 Wireless-G print server

In theory, a print server can be useful, but the Linksys WPS54GU2 is not reliable enough for us to recommend.
