Is Ethernet needed for this to work? I have a 3 floor townhouse with modem on the bottom floor. I hate Fios.

I would like to keep the time capsule on the mid level alongside my iMac on the computer desk, but I don't know what will give me the fastest connection. I don't understand what the thunderbolt adapters and other cables do. Help!!! Thanks in advance!

Side note: what hard drive (if any) do I need to stream my media to other devices besides my Apple TV?

  • A standard WAP with adjustable antennas (Cisco/D-Link/etc.) might be sufficient depending on condo construction. Traversing 1 story is not that big a deal any longer. I bet you can put this on the 1st or second floors and connect from your mac just fine.
