    Hey everyone, my connection is about 2Mb but as we know, the time capsule does not include QoS and if I was to get one I would like it so I can still play Xbox Live without other ruining the online experiance so what im wondering is.

    If I connect the other laptops to the Guest network feature, does this feature limit the total available bandwidth or does it give them the whole lot when Im not on?

    I ask this as I know the BT FON feature does a similar thing of only allowing a max of 512KBps to be used

    Are there no TC or AE users who could test this out for me.

    All you would have to do is join a guest network and then run a broadband speed test and see if it is still giving you the full speed?

    Just tried this. I have a TC and an AExpress. I connected one machine to my Guest Network and started up Netflix. While it was playing a movie i used my Air to run the speed test and got 25ms Ping with 5Mbps down and up so it's pretty much still full speed for me.
