    What exactly do you want to do with your network?

    Bonjour has nothing to do with speed or range. It's a way for Macs to find each other on a network without having to mess with IP addresses or hostnames. Nothing more, nothing less.

    It also comes in handy for Windows machines to find macs/airport routers. I use it on XP to connect to a printer that I hooked to the Airport Extreme via USB.
