I've been backing up my MacBook to my Time Capsule for as long as I've had both (almost 5 years now). Due to some network issues (slow internet speeds, dropped connections, facetime problems, etc.), I recently purchased a new wireless router (Netgear r6300). My internet speeds, etc. have now improved dramatically; however, now I need to figure out how to back up my MacBook. I did some searching here and I gather that it's not as easy as just purchasing an external HD, hooking it up to my Netgear via USB or ethernet and configuring Time Machine to back up to the external HD. Am I right about that? I know that I could just purchase a new Time Capsule, but the reviews on it are very mixed and I don't really want to drop $300 on a device that may crap out on me in a year or two.
