Netgear’s Wireless Extreme router has been tailored for Macs

For the most part, most of your everyday computer hardware tends to be both Windows and Mac compatible, such as external hard drives (formatting could be different but that depends on the user some times), speakers, displays, etc. Well the good news for Mac users looking for a bit of exclusivity is that Netgear has launched a WiFi router that supposedly has been tailored to Mac users.

So what makes the Netgear Wireless Extreme a Mac-tailored WiFi router? Well according to Netgear, the Wireless Extreme will come with native support for Time Machine with drives plugged into the USB port on the router, thus allowing Mac users to backup their computers over WiFi. It will also come with dedicated software that lets USB printers share properly on Macs even without full Mac OS X support.

Apart from those features, the Wireless Extreme router is pretty much standard fare. It runs dual-band 802.11n WIFi with four gigabit Ethernet ports, DLNA sharing for USB drives, built-in broadband meter that checks collective usage and device-independent parental controls. For those who might be a bit clueless on setting up a password-protected WiFi network, it seems that Netgear will be shipping the Wireless Extreme password-locked by default. For more information head on down to Netgear’s website.
