Apple Airport is your best bet—totally mac friendly, and is a regular wifi access point to a PC.

yes 2nd bpeoples…the new airport extreme base station was by far the easiest to set up; dwcent coverage amd true gigabit ethernet; mac admin software was a snap and PCs haveno problem connecting.

The main reason people ever have issues with a mixed wireless network (mac and PC) is because of the type of security used. Just make sure you steer clear of WEP (use WPA or WAP2 instead) and you should be OK, no matter what wireless router you use.

Just to add one thing. With the Airport Extreme, you get the ability to share a hard drive or a printer wirelessly which might be a big help depending on your setup.
