I made the leap to buy a new iMac on Black Friday (click here), and have spent much time since trying to figure out how to integrate this machine into my heavily Windows-based household. I currently have 3 desktop machines running Windows 7, plus my Windows 7 notebook for Work, and then a bunch of iOS devices - iPad, iPod Touch, 2 iPhones, and an Apple TV. The real complicator is my media and backup server, a custom built machine running Windows Home Server V1 that currently sports a touch over 19TB of storage (mostly DVDs and Blurays, but plenty of pictures, home movies, iTunes files, etc.). I've already figured out that there is no simple way to back up the new iMac via WHS, so I'm figuring that I'll probably pick up a Time Capsule. The current question I have is how best to integrate the Time Capsule into my network. My network architecutre has my cable modem feeding a Linksys E4200 gigabit and WiFi router which in turn feeds a gigabit switch that hooks up to Cat-5 cables run throughout my house. The iMac will sit on a desk in our great room, where I will also keep one of my Core i7 Windows 7 machines (this machine will be hooked up via a DisplayPort capable video card and cable to one of the DisplayPort connections on the back of the iMac for occasional use in Target Display Mode for applications that I absolutely need a dedicated Windows machine to run, i.e., Windows Media Center hooked up to my HDHomerun Prime network cable card tuner). I only have a single Cat 5 cable run to this location. So where should I put the Time Capsule and how should it be configured as far as networking and WiFi is concerned? Should I continue to use the (relatively new) Linksys E4200 router as the router and primary WiFi access point and locate the Time Capsule at the same desk with the iMac and the Windows 7 machine to act as a gigabit switch? What about wireless? Can the Time Capsule "extend" the Linksys wireless signal? And then what should I store directly on the iMac as opposed to on my server? I currently store all of my family pictures and home movies on the server, and notice a fair amount of network lag when browsing pictures. I intend to use the iMac for photo editing, home movie editing, and other multi-media stuff. I suspect that the performance would be much better if I stored that stuff locally, and backed it up to the Time Capsule. Suggestions and comments apprecicated.
