HI Guys, Its taken me nearly a week but yesterday i finally managed to achieve my home network setup. We have the following: 1 x first ed MBP dualcore and 1 x powerbook The home network: o2 homebroadband running as a bridged modem into my airport extreme (gigabit) in WDS mode with one philips powered usb harddrive attached via a belkin hub (currently by itself). In addition there is a airport express configured as a remote WDS station which sends music further down the house. The express and extreme are both green lit and cant be more than 15 metres from each other with one wall seperating them. It was a huge relief to finally get this working but i have to say it is a little dissappointing. I use it to provide internet to both laptops and to create a new itunes library based at the house with all the music on the netwrok drive. I set this up last night, put all the music on the usb drive and then in itunes added the mother folder to the library and it has been processing for nearly 12 hours now. When i check activity monitor it shows the network activity peaking at 1.0mps. Can this be right? Yesterday it was at 435kbs until i read ann article about interference and moved the base station away from the metal of the tv and amps etc, it nearly doubled in throughput but still seems rubbish. Is this all i can expecct? Any helpful suggestions very welcome. Many thanks.
