firewire networking?

Recommended Posts

airport extreme - no firewire

 

airport express - no firewire

 

i am looking to hook up my external hard drive to a device that supports firewire that i can just update wirelessly with my macbook via time machine.

i really would like firewire cause of the fast data transfer.

 

anyone know something goood?

 

if not ill just grab an airport express and use USB

 

P.S. i think that apple should definetly put out a new networking product with firewire compatibility.

Theoretically, USB 2.0 has a higher data rate (480 Mbps) than Firewire-400 (400 Mbps). Firewire 800 ports are pretty rare on Apple hardware.

What's the point when the most you're going to get out of any wireless device is a theoretical maximum of 300mbps? And in reality you're lucky if you get more than 100.
