Wireless network and CPU usage

Recommended Posts

While related to my previous question this is a different topic:


My G5 is connected to our network via Airport. If my wife connects to an external drive attached to the G5 via the network and accesses the drive to update her iPod (our individual music libraries our each over 90GB currently) will this affect my computer at all? I'm thinking no, but then even if just acting as a conduit to the external I assume my machione has to be involved at some level. I do a lot of video editing on my G5 so I'm concerned about any CPU siphoning,but I'm also trying to keep things in our set-up as easy as simply... ideally I would prefer getting another machine to be a hub or at least a networkable like the new LaCie models coming out but I just bought a lot of new equipment so I'd rather not add something else to the already exceeded budget I promised I would keep.
