    I cracked it open. Nothing new inside from what I could see but I switched out the 500GB hard drive with the 1TB inside my old time capsule. also, I thought you couldn't separate the N devices from the B/G devices, but I figured that out too. So now my Apple TV, iMac, and Macbook are all on "N" and My iPod Touch, Wii, and wife's iPhone can have the crappy B/G bullshit.

    cliffs for separation?

    is it just using the guest network for the b/g stuff or something else?

    Isn't the point of dual band to support both b/g/n all at the same time without slowdowns?

    no, there's an option in the wireless options you can check mark to have your "N" network named "whattever the name is (5GHz.)" check marking adds the 5GHz and literally separates the N from the B/G.

    on my first go, I did the walkthrough guide. when I checked my logs and statistics on the airport utility program, my old time capsule and Apple TV were transmitting at 54 and my iMac at 130. checkmarking the 5GHz now makes my iMac Apple TV and macbook transmit at 270. the other devices hole at 54
