    I currently use a hard drive attached to my Airport Extreme Base Station (802.11n) as my Time Machine back up for an iMac and a Mac Book Air.

    I understand that this is not officially supported. (see http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=457214)

    But does anyone know if this setup breaks under 10.5.3???

    Thanks!

    After reading a positive post in the 10.5.3 announcement comments, I went ahead and installed 10.5.3. The not supported Time Machine and Airdisk connection via Airport Extreme Base Station (802.11n) still works!

    Lucky you. Mine won't even connect to the disk anymore. It did at 3pm when I did my backup before going to 10.5.3, though.

    Mine works, but as before, I still have to manually mount the Time Machine disc after every restart (or add to my login items) before it will start automatically backing up.
