    If I purchased the Air Port Extreme base station will I be able to connect a MyBook Studio II?

    If you have this config, please let me know your thoughts.

    Yes I know that transfers will be slow via wireless than Firewire, just looking to have the drive attached wireless.

    As long as it can connect via USB you should be all set. I have a WD 400GB USB drive connected with no problems.

    Transfers aren't all that slow. I mean they're slow but I can do 3 gb in under 7 minutes. I know that's not fast, but hey...it's how life goes.
    It's a decent budget setup. My iTunes streams from that setup.

    Thanks for the feedback, I wasn't sure if there was going to be an issue but...

    I purchased the MB World Edition and thought I was going to be able to plug in the MB Studio II, however the MB World Edition doesn't support the MB Studio II via usb (go figure, same company and it they aren't compatible)
