... needin' me some tech savviness...

it's time for a new wireless router. our d-link is the pits, and our computers stall out online about once each 30 seconds. VERY annoying. 

i've been researching wireless routers, and i'm confused. i need a new router, and i'm tired giving a blank stare at my options.
do i need a wireless N router, or will the less expensive G be just as good? will my macbook pro and steve's powerbook even work with N capabilities, and if i buy the N will we have to buy an adapter card? (have i lost you other clueless peeps like me?)

too much info. just someone tell me what to do, please. and if you could send the brand, model number, and cheapest place to get it, that would be helpful. :)

(i have a feeling my comments for this post might be slim.....)

what are the things you wish you understood more and had some skillz in? 
another one for me--- photography.

If you're only using it to surf the Internet, you should be fine with the G. The Linksys routers are good, and pretty solid. Look for model WRT54G or WRT54G2, they should be available from a variety of places (my favorite is newegg.com) for around $50.
