    'N' Wireless
    Hi all,

    Looking at getting a TC and the only thing i can see going for it over another make (netgear for example) is the capability of connection to my MBP at 'N speed'.

    My question is, although the TC is a good thing to have for back up and to store my music on, is it really that much better than a standard wireless network, given the fact that 'N' is still only a draft.

    Opinions appreciated.

    Thanks all.

    You can't plug an external drive into a typical router to make wireless backups of your Mac. It's a huge plus if you have a MacBook. Other than that, it's just a router and a wireless HD combined into a single package.

    Texas, where else?

    And there's not a single brand amongst the major manufacturers that do not make a 'n' router. Have not looked in awhile, but I'd think it would be harder to find a router that's been introduced in the last 2 years that does not have 'n' than to find one with it.

    The TC is a nice piece of equipment and I have the 1 TB. If you plan on using Time Machine for your backup plan, it is very nice and convenient.

    But, you can also just get a router and an external drive - I have this setup also. I actually prefer this, only because I prefer a bootable backup to Time Machine.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
