I'm looking into buying one of the old airport extremes (802.11.g) - the dome shaped ones rather than the AppleTV shaped ones - but I want to make sure it does what I'm looking for it to do. Specifically:
*Connect an external Hard drive (via USB) that can be therefore accessed by multiple computers;
*Connect to the net on a MiniMac through a *wired* connection (it does not have a wireless card);
*yet still connect to the net on my MacBook wirelessly at the same time.

Are these three requirements possible using the dome shaped Airport Extremes, or only the latest generation?
