Today i kind of made an online impulse buy and bought from apple site a 500gig Time Capsule; The reason I bought it is that right now i have a Macbook Pro that is online wirelessly quite a bit, and most of my files are on external hard drives plugged into a windows machine on the network. Accessing these files is PAINSTAKINGLY slow i usually have to go down stairs , plug in and get files while wired. So i wanted a network drive assuming that Time Capsule would make accessing files on its drive or an attached external much quicker then now. I should mention i have a Belkin "N" router, that is EXTREMELY fast when web browsing ONLY WITH NO SECURITY features turned on; it does NOT work with WPA, it only works with WEP and it cuts performance by at least a half. I do not like my signal all over the neighborhood so i figured an apple router would work flawlessly with my macbook pro... But now im reading that there are performance issues and it's the first time i have heard of this I want to basically hook up my current 500gig ext hard drive to Time Capsule, use the external hd for Time machine and and Time capsule HD for Client files and Media... Does this sound right? or does Time machine have to backup to the hd on time capsule directly? Is there a better way to get a network drive with no access speed issues?
