I've been reading a bunch of threads here and have tried different things and started over and am completely confusing myself and hope that somebody can explain what this all means. I've seen many people advocate using a router (mine is a linksys WRT54gs) as the main router and setting up the Time Capsule in bridge mode to "take advantage of wireless n speeds). I think I now have it set up this way (I don't remember how I set up bridge only so if somebody can say where that is I'd appreciate it). My main question comes from what the benefit is to using n-only vs. mixed. Obviously N has faster speeds, but is this going to be recognized in browsing the internet/downloading files off the internet, or only from accessing hard drives on TC (either internal or external by USB). I thought I would have faster speeds on the internet but I don't understand how to tell my computers to use the TC for internet connectivity rather than the linksys. Am I thinking about this wrong? The other problem I seem to be having (though I need to confirm this when I get home later) is that I am getting very shaky connection to the externally connected hard drive. I don't know if it is a range issue as I could connect when I was right next to the TC but I couldn't when I went one level upstairs. I didn't think that would be it as another computer up on a higher level (much further away) still could connect to the internet. Do you need to be much closer to the routers to access a hard drive than you do to connect to the internet? My head is swimming with all these terms that I don't understand and I've broken and repaired my network a bunch of times (before I tried to use the TC as the primary router and the linksys as the bridge in mixed mode but that seemed to cause a ton of problems). Any clarification on what the goal of all this is and how I will know if I'm successful would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
