set up dual band wifi - via engadget
over on engadget today was this article, setting up a dual band (for those that havent yet bought apples new extreme).
I have a question about doing this.
Here is my set up.
1 mac mini - ethernet to router
1 printer, attached to mini, sharing on network
2 laptops using wireless n - main computers
1 laptop using b/g
2 iphones using b/g
1 express b/g to stereo
$10000000 to S. Jobs.
will doing this dual band set up essentially mean i have two independent networks?
I would like to have my printer, mini, and wireless music appear on all set ups.
Cheers and thanks

As somebody running a dual band network made of a first gen TC and Linksys WRT54GS, I can tell you that all devices will be able to communicate with one another. It does set up two separate SSIDs (and in essence two networks), but since they are on the same subnet they act as one. My Linksys is running in bridge mode, so the TC's doing all the routing and the Linksys only serves as a wireless/wired access point for wireless b/g and ethernet connected devices. I have an ethernet printer, multiple N and G devices, and multiple ethernet devices connecting to both routers and being able to communicate and share networked resources.
