I have a home LAN with a Linksys wireless router. My wife's computer is on the 2nd floor and mine is in the basement. I had it wired before I got the wireless (and the Macs), so I turned off Airport. My wife's year old iMac has 250G disk, and my new iMac has 500G. I'm trying to decide whether it makes sense to buy a 1T Time Capsule, or for the same money buy Firewire drives. I think my wife would prefer not having a drive on her desk, but she'd give up speed. Having both of our backups on one drive in the basement is really not particularly secure. We back up documents to .mac. I'd like to see some discussion to help me decide.
