Hi there, I am looking at buying an Aiport Extreme. This will replace: 1. A Windows 2000 Server machine acting as internet gateway 2. Replace a Linksys 54mbps Wirless Access point 3. Possibly replace a Netgear GS108 8 Port Gigabit Switch Now - the Server I think is now redundant as I don't actually use it for anything anymore other than internet gateway. Waste of a computer. I take it that I can set port forwarding up using the Aiport Utility so that I can give certain apps on my computer full access to the internet (i.e. run a server process)? And the AEBS acts as a firewall between my computers and the internet so I don't need to configure any firewalls on my computers? Secondly, Obviously the wireless speed is faster. My Macbook, Macbook Pro and ATV will benefit from that as they are all draft N (the Apple TV does have 802.11n right?). So I can push speeds of 5-6MB rather than the typical 2-3 on g. What is the reliablity of the signal? Any known problems? And finally - the gigabit ports. My Macbook Pro and Windows machine are wired so I can achieve up to 50mb/sec using my GS108. Is the gigabit switch part of the AEBS up to the latest standards? Again, any known problems? The Apple website says 1 Gigabit port for WAN and 3gbit LAN. Can the 4th port be used for LAN as well? Can I link my GS108 and the AEBS using one of the ports one each unit - to give me more ports? I am also connecting a Virgin Media Motorola SB4100 cable modem to it. I currently connect it using the RJ45 connection. Will this connect ok or does the modem HAVE to be a USB modem? I am sure it works on both ports but just incase. I think that is all my questions. Many thanks for your answers.
