Thinking about apple router

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So i have an imac, a macbook air, an ipad 2, and a ps3... Currently using a enginus 9500 but it kinda sucks, range is bad and sometimes it slows my connection... Thinking about getting a time capsule 1tb. Is that rauter any good?? Or should i pick the asus nt-56??

I'd recommend staying away from a Time Capsule. It's better to keep an external hard drive separate in my opinion. I've found the Airport Extreme Base Station to be good though, the newer models are better than the one I have. I can't comment on the range in comparison to your device, but it seems all right on mine.

Always best to keep your functions separate. I would just have an external HDD on the side.

No idea I'm afraid, I've not really got much experience with routers. This is Anandtech's review of the latest AEBS and TC: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4577/a...w-faster-wifi-

(And if it wasn't clear in my above post, I don't have that ASUS router.)

The Airport Extreme is a great contender as a Router. If you got the money for it go for it. Other contenders are the ASUS RT-56U, Netgear WNDR 4000, and the Cisco E4200.
