I currently have the older Time Capsule, dual band but not dual radio. You can plug a USB device into it, and access it NAS-like (I am not much of a network guy, I am sure my lingo is all wrong). The access speed to this drive is horrible, regardless of distance, G vs. N and so on. It's like there is a bottleneck in there that was slower than the drives or the network. I recently went all mobile with a new tricked out 13" MacBook Air, and have been considering buying the new 2TB 802.11ac Time Capsule. Anyone have experience with hooking up a powered hub to the USB port for access to external drives and a printer? I have 3 external drives that aren't getting used much as I tend to use the Air while sitting on the couch. Basically, I'd like to be able to hook those three drives up to an 802.11ac router and access them as fast as possible, and if the Time Capsule has good speeds for such things then it seems the right choice. I have done some research, but I can't find the answer on it's speed through to the USB-attached devices. I am also open to other possibilitiesa real NAS or whateveras long as they are simple, as networking is really not my strong suit. Thanks!
