Among the problems are slow speeds and dropped connections, with one forum participant having turned in four Airport Extremes and working on his 5th! Any of you experiencing these problems?&nbsp;</p>

My Airport Extreme is circa fall 20007 and works flawlessly. Also, though I once ran it at 5 GHz, I now run it at 2.4 GHz b/g/n mixed mode anyway.

I have a 2TB Time Capsule and have not experienced problems but I've only had it 6 or 7 months. The problems seem to start occurring around the 18 month
