Little over six years ago I bought the 802.11g and, sadly, it's time to replace her (unless someone has a trick for getting it to power up again). I'm not overly excited about dumping $180 on a wireless router (2-3x the cost of other solutions) just because it's Apple, so a) am I missing something that makes the AirPort Extreme Base Station that much better? b) does anyone have experience working with something else that they would suggest I pick up? At the very least, I've no interest in a time capsule. If I ever feel the need to back up wirelessly I'll plug one of my externals into the base station. Thanks for your input.
