    I have had two bummer experiences with AirPort Extreme. One DOA, the other failed within 3 weeks of deploying it. The one that was DOA was exchanged by Best Buy. I am taking the other one back soon. I'm trying to decide - do I try a third box, or should I try something else? I have 6mbps DSL, MBA, MacBookPro, iMac, iPhone and iPad. I also have an android phone. I would love to be able to backup all of these devices with one AirPort, but perhaps I should get a better router with an integrated MoDem, connect HDDs via USB ports, and target backup that way. Thanks

    The only issue with using a different router and its USB ports with external hard drives, is that it more than likely won't support using Time Machine to back up your macs. However there is other backup software you could get to backup macs to those external drives.
