Cross platform wireless router... issues?

I currently have a wireless router (MR814) and looking into getting a MAC laptop. The router says it is cross platform but reading the info about the MAC says I need a access point.

Which is right? Do I have anything to be concerned about in regards to secruity having the two platforms running off of the router?

A wireless router is a combination of a wirless router and wireless access point. They are all croos platform compliant as long as it is an 802.11b. It is like advertising a hub or switch as cross platform clompliant. A wireless access point is just a hub. Most of the time a half duplex hub. (unless you spend a lot of extra money).

In our office we have 2 MAC desktops, a Mac laptop, 10 Win based PCs and 3 win based laptops. All access the wireless network flawlessly, AND I can even dump certian files on the MAC guys' machines without problems.

So yes, PCs and Macs can co-exist just fine.
