I have been a linksys fan since way back. way back...

I am getting ready to upgrade (again) my router since, while I have an N router (Linksys) it is not a sim-Dual Band. This was fine as all the devices I had were all N, however my roommate just picked up a used laptop that is G. Well, lets just say the difference is very noticeable.

I have looked at a good number of routers in the last few weeks trying to make my mind up. Yes, interface is a consideration, but then so is storage for me. I plan on being able to use a network HD device in order to store my iTunes stuff (all 300gb worth) in order to be accessed by 3 different machines. I also want to move my Time Machine backups to a new, larger capacity drive.

For me, it is basically coming down to the Airport Extreme. As I can put whatever size drive I want and use it from wherever. Yes, there are other NAS devices, however I have not found any mention of being able to utilize them over the network for TimeMachine.
