I've got a Linksys WRT610N right now, and it has to be the most god awful piece of **** I have ever owned. The first ethernet port went out today, which was my last straw. I'm looking into one of the new Airport Extreme's because it's about the same specs (Plus i can use it as a native airdisk), but I have a few "technical"questions that i can't find a solid answer anywhere else on. I've looked through mroogle already and couldn't find anything straightforward. When setting up the attached storage, can you specify directories to use as what. For instance, I have my raid setup on my linux server shared with 2 folders, Backup & Storage. you can guess what each is for. I'd like to be able to hook a drobo to the time machine and get somewhat of the same functionality out of it. I've been considering buying osx server for my mac mini, which is just overkill for a file server, so this might prevent that. The other big question is can you do a MAC address clone on the airport extreme? My ISP is retarded and won't accept any other mac address than my macbook (the first mac i gave them), they just refuse to add another mac address for me. So I have my current router set to clone my mac, which completely bypasses that problem. it allows me to keep all of my systems online and their network 'engineers' get to keep being lazy f**ks. I've always used linksys products, and have always had great luck with them. However, linksys went under, and now I see why. I've been migrating all of my gear over to apple's equipment and i figure I might as well go for an airport box next. Should it be able to work for me like I need it to?
