Actually, you can use it as a wireless HD. That is exactly how I use it now. I have never turned on TM or backed up my computer.

The initial setup is the only one that takes very long. Just connect it directly to time machine for the first backup and after that you should be fine. And yes, you can use it as a wireless hard drive.

180GB is a lot of data and if the connection is slow, it's going to take a long time. Be patient.
