    My HP Photosmart all-in-one wireless printer and a my Time Capsule work well together but the printer is 802.11b and the TC is 802.11n.
    Will the printer slow down my network of two MacBook Pro's, the printer and the Time Capsule?
    Does the printer affect the "n" speed of the network as all the other appliances are "n".
    Thanks, Donald

    It will only slow down the network when it is connected. You might be better off if you hook it up to the TC via USB.
