    I've been looking for a router that'll let me share a HD via network and wow.... pretty much everything D-Link has some weird proprietary something or rather. Linksys has a few but the only one I can find that's also dual band is the wrt610n.

    My Macbook Pro is out of the country for a while so I'll primarily be using my desktop PC for a while, and I have a girlfriend who uses her windows PC with a a/b/g/n wifi card.

    So what do you think guys? Will APE work for me, or should I be looking into something else?

    Oh and another quick question.

    Can I partition the drive so I can use a portion for time machine backup while I use the rest for storage via fat32?

    Thanks

    Yes, it will work without any problems. I am using a crappy Dell Laptop at the moment and it has no problems connecting to my Airport Extreme.
