    Here's my scenario, every day I change around a couple gigs of space on my MacBook Pro, which is tethered to my ACD in my room normally. Whenever I want to change it, I have to bring it downstairs, plug it in via ethernet and back it up if I want it to take less than six hours.

    What's the best solution to make it take less time, via a wired connection I guess?

    My room is directly above the router (on a different floor, though). I doubt drilling through the ceiling is too easy, though. We do have this like 100-foot ethernet cord, though. (Don't ask.)

    Suggestions?

    Are you taking advantage of 802.11n on the Time Capsule?

    Yes, but transferring gigs over wireless is painful.
