    No. ATV will connect to any home wireless network and wireless router. Better to have "N" though.

  • Not if you only want to use Apple TV to watch YouTUbe videos,stream Netflix to you TV and view photos from Flickr or MobileMe. But if you want to be able to watch you itunes files( movies and TV shows) you will need the Airport Extreme, because you can plug an external hard drive that has all of your iTunes files( movies and TV shows) into the Airport Extreme.
