Regardless of my screen name, I am a brand new MBP owner. Also am an older generation non techy. I think maybe the ease of use of the Ipad made me over confident and so when my Toshiba laptop died, I wanted a mac. Keep in mind tho that I am really one of those grammas that I see being made fun of on these boards, i would have been fine with my ipad when all I do is email, surf the web, store pics. But hey, I love my MBP . The setup went so smoothly for internet thru my ISP provided Westell 7500 router (5 yo now) and my wirelessly connected HP printer. But now I see I also need a backup device. I am wondering if a Time Capsule would be of any benefit to me. The westell router has b, g modes only and the TC has n capability and dual bands. So will that get me any improvement for my internet surfing and watching youtube without that irritating buffering? I am just so afraid that trying to setup a TC to work with my MBP, Ipad and printer, well ill screw up somehow and end up with no internet connection at all, not even being able to just give up and reconnect MBP and ipad back as originally to my westell router. As I look thru some of the video tutorials online, I get to the step where they ask for password and I dont know which they want - I have all my passwords written down but they dont say which to use so it would be frustrating. And I dont understand - to use bridge mode or not. So my question, in all this paranoia is, what will a TC do for me over a plain ol extended hard drive device.
