Just received the TC (the new 2009 version) today and am in the process of setting it up. I intend to use it both as a hard drive for back ups and a wireless point.
Just started using AirPort Utility and the screen asks me what i want to do with TC:
1. Create a new wireless network?
2. Replace an existing wireless router ?
3. TC to join the current network?
Pardon my ignorance but which one should i use? I want to take advantage of the dual band wireless feature as well as use it as a hard drive.
My isp is AOL and router is Netgear DG834. Once the TC has been configured and set up i will switch off the wireless function on the Netgear in order to use just the wireless feature on the TC. At the same time i dont want to have to reset the passwords etc in my devices that are already connected to the existing Netgear router.
Anyone can help please?
PS: For clarification the Netgear router is also a modem so i cant get rid of it physically altogether.
When Apple instructions mention network do they mean a bunch of computers conneting to the same router?
I have searched on the net about this issue but the only instructions i have found so far are for the earlier models of TC which were slightly different and had a different pattern of set up.
During my searches i noticed that people were mentioning choosing WPA instead WEP. I dont know if this is correct or the case. But i have also heard that WPA tends to create problems with Sony PS3 (incompatibility issue i think).
