    NO- It does not work with any password protected Linksys router that uses a webpage to login for access the wifi network. I wish the salesman would have mentioned that. Pretty useless for me unless I hook up using an ethernet cable or buy a new router.. Guess this lesson will just cost me the 15% restocking fee.

  • Good question. I can't say definitively but I do know that that Linksys model, and Linksys routers in general work really well with Apple products.

    You should not have a problem. You may find that an N router gives you better range, depending on how far away your TV is from your router. I use a white Netgear wireless G and do not have a problem. The apple tv is designed to work with any router.
