My family is looking into getting my grandmother a router and iPad for Christmas because we don't always get to visit a lot and would like to chat using FaceTime. She has an old computer (probably from the late 90s), if that's important. My cousins stay there sometimes and would probably use the Wi-fi for surfing the web on their iPods.

What should I look for in a router (specs, brand, etc.) in this situation?
Thanks a lot.

There are numerous routers to choose from and any good brand name would do . Netgear , Linksys , Asus or D-Link to name some of the top brands. I would get the router and then a matching adaptor of the same brand to match. You want to make sure that it's a dual band and has N capability.

Any wireless N 300Mbps certified router would be fine, no need to spend too much. I mean your grandmother probably wont be doing too much downloading or gaming on it I gather...
