    For some reason, my airport extreme becomes completely useless when the USB port is occupied. Whether I'm connecting a printer or a external HD, all internet shuts down, and I am not even able to connect to the Extreme via Airport Utility. It pretty much stops wireless broadcast.

    But when I pull it out, and reset the router without USB, then everything works.

    Then as soon as soon as I plug in a USB... everything stops.

    The weird thing is, this thing is only 2 weeks old. But for the first few days, USB worked like a charm.

    Any idea what happened? Or does this happen to anyone else?

    The computer is only two weeks old?

    If so then its under warranty take it to the apple store and make them fix it.

    If not post back and we can go from there.
