Hi, there! Wondering if I can pick the minds of my fellow MacRumors readers on some upgrading Id like to do Im currently running an old (2007-era) Airport Extreme as my router. Its wired directly to my iMac and runs wirelessly for my Xbox, Apple TV, my wifes MacBook Air, our iOS devices, etc. Ive been having some dropout on wifi lately (especially when AirPlaying to my Samsung speakers), and Ive been thinking it might be time to upgrade the router. Id like to kill two birds with one stone, though. Currently, my wife and I back up to a cloud service, but we also each have Time Machine volumes in the house. I back up directly to a Firewire-attached drive and she backs up to an old Mac mini (which is connected by ethernet cable to the router). The Mac mini also hosts her iTunes library. So With all that out of the way, heres my dilemma: I want to upgrade the router, but Im wondering if I should also upgrade our local back-up strategy at the same time. I see two options: Upgrade to a Time Capsule big enough to hold both of our Time Machine backups. This means I can get rid of my Firewire drive. Ill still need the Mac mini hooked up for her iTunes library, though. Upgrade to a new Airport, but leave the rest of the stuff alone. This is cheaper. And down the line, I could pick up a Seagate Central NAS which could hold our Time Machine backups AND her iTunes library, as well as backup her Facebook photos for her. Bonus: It frees up the Mac mini for me to turn it into an HTPC. Any insights or advice? Just wondering if one of these strategies is demonstrably better or worse than the other, or if theres anything I havent thought of.
