    Well my wireless router seems to be going by the wayside so I am starting to look at new ones. I would like a wireless N router and particularly one that supports 5ghz. I do not like linksys or belkin but all others I am ok with. I have two computers which will be setup wirelessly one that is maybe 15 ft away but the signal has to travel through three walls, and another that is roughly 30 ft. away also having to travel through three walls. I have looked at the time capsule and am quite intrigued but figured I would see what everyone selse has to say.

    Thanks for your help!

    After also looking at the Time Capsule, in the end, I bought a D-Link DIR-655 Wireless N router. Note that this was all of a week ago, and I had no prior experience with wireless routers. It was extremely easy to set up. You put the CD into the computer that will have a wired connection into the router, and just follow the steps. It walks you through everything you need to do.

    Time Capsule allows you to run in 5 GHz mode, and the D-Link router does not. That's largely the only major difference between the two. They have different administrating tools as well, but they largely accomplish the same goal.

    I'd go with the Apple Extreme base station. If you want an external drive,
    the time capsule 500 gb is a great deal for just about a hundred more than the router alone.
