Sorry, Kathleen, I may have misread your original post. I had gathered that your AirPort Extreme was 802.11n, but re-reading, I see that may not be the case. I think the only difference, if yours is 802.11g or older, would be slower access speed and shorter range--which might be issues, especially if the speed is too poky for a hard drive. I dunno. I have one of the newest ("n") AirPorts, but I've never tried running a hard drive on it, so I don't know what the performance is like, compared to direct connection, so I can't even guess how fast it would be on a "g" or earlier router.
