USB 3.0, kind of pointless right now.

k, i read that external hdd transfers can be slow so i wanted to make sure and give it the most bandwidth i could.


the whole reason why i am dealing with this is because my router (airport extreme) has decided to only assign one IP address at a time. so i can't hit the internet with more than one device at a time.  on the 2nd device, i'll get a "Self-Assigned IP Address"
Have you attempted to troubleshoot this issue?

I bet your DHCP range is set to like...one number.

Check stuff in the DHCP settings.

If that doesn't work try assigning a static IP to the second device. IP address could be something like 192.168.1.45, gateway to 192.168.1.1 and subnet mask to 255.255.255.0

i'll take a look at that tonight.  its hard to troubleshoot because i get into the router and lose my internet connection so i can't research while i'm working on it.

I have a router thingy question. I bought a middle version router at best buy. Netgear prob $65? I dont get that great of signal up in my bedroom even though it said I should on the box. Should I buy a booster thingy, or a new, more powerful router thingy?  I also want the least amount of cancer these thingys are probably giving me.

Thanks

Try changing the channel in the router interface. Should be 1-11 or something like that. There might be interference on one of the channels that is hurting your signal.

What does that do?  I just want to be able to bbs in bed?  So I shouldn't get a thingy to boost the signal, I should just get a dual band one and this will fix everything?

I may.  I have a single band N but it gets all jacked up when we are streaming on our WD and both on our laptops.

Make sure Saul knows how to remotely fix it before making your final decision.
