We currently have a homehub 2 and
1. Most of our machinery is now Apple and, performance aside, it will be useful to have a TC for backup
2. The homehub seems to drop connections very frequently.
I am aware the the TC does not have a modem so my question is: should I just use the homehub as a modem or is it better to replace it completely with an off-the-shelf modem? Whether I keep the homehub or replace it, is it juts a matter of installi ng the TC or is it more complcated?
I am using my Time Capsule in bridge mode and as the wireless router with my Home Hub 2 pugged into it. Since connecting the TC, i have gone over my monthly broadband allowance and am worried that backing up my MacBook (over wifi to TC) is eating all my bandwidth (even though i had assumed it was doing this over a LAN and hence would not use my bandwidth)
I have set up the TC as instructed and it works just fine ... it's just that i'm worried when i backup over wifi, it is eating all my bandwidth allowance. The IP address of the TC starts with 192 (if that helps at all)
Can anyone confirm if this really is an issue? will backing up over TC wifi use my bandwidth alloance?
