OK..be very gentle: I need both a HD backup and a router. The most convienient way to go is, I guess the Time Capsule. But, this gets very poor ratings and it seems a lot of failure rates. What else can I do? I have cable coming into the house, into my iMac...home use. I plan on getting an iPad, thus need the WiFi. I would eventually like to do wireless printing from the iPad. I have two iPhones. My needs are simple...and I would keep the home computer "hard wired". There are older model Airport Extreme (model# A1143) for low prices ($65 at OWC), and tons of routers. Set me up with something that's reliable, fast and cost savings.
