    I'm shopping for an external hard drive and a new wireless router. Is the 2TB wireless router/external hard drive worth the money?

    I don't remember the last time they updated them, are there any rumors of them receiving an update anytime soon?

    ----------

    Also, I recently signed up for Comcast Internet. Does this router support the newest DOCSIS for Comcast Internet?

    Thanks!

    I just purchased one and love it. I only use it for time machine for two MBP.

    Does anyone know if it is DOCSIS compatible? I just signed up for Comcast Internet and they said I must have a DOCSIS router. Thanks!

    The router shouldn't matter. It's the DOCSIS modem that would make the difference. They might have said that though because Motorolla makes a combined cable modem/wireless router now. Time Warner gave me one. I use an APE though and disabled the modem's routing functions.

    And OP - They updated them earlier this summer with stronger transmitters. Probably will be a while before the next update.
