    Hooked up my AEBS tonight,

    printer works from every computer in the house over bonjour!
    (yay me!!)

    My questions:

    when going through the set up i set it up to use the routers (327w westell versalink from verizon) ip addresses,

    is that ok, or do you see better results from using the AEBS to make ip addresses? or even use the AEBS as a seperate wireless so you can access 2 different ones?

    (i have no "n" rated wirless items, so it is in mixed mode)

    Is it ok to plug everythiing into the AEBS, or should i hardline everything into the original modem, and only use the AEBS ethernet ports as extras, or does it matter?

    what usb would you recommend for me to get in order to add hard drives to the AESB? something powered or non powered? any suggestions on brands?

    Thanks for any and all reply's!

    It shouldn't matter which device is your DHCP server but just make sure only one is performing the function.
