    If you need wireless networking and backup/storage capabilities you need a Time Capsule. It can be set up to backup your MacBook Pro using Time Machine, and you can use it to store other items (it gets a little hard to backup AND store on the Time Capsule, but discussion board communities can help you set this up). I have two Time Capsules and I love them. Time Machine is easy to use, and set up is easy as well.
    Depending on the size and building material used in your house you can use just one Time Capsule. I have two only for storage size because I have six computers that I backup. I live in a single story 3 bedroom house and one Time Capsule can provide wireless coverage to the whole house.
