I doubt it'll be an bottleneck. Airport Extreme is Apple's name for 802.11g, which has speeds of up to 54meg. There is some overhead to this so that real speed is c 25meg, but absolute top speed for ADSL2 is about the same (22meg?). Most likely situation is that you're a couple of miles from the telephone exchange & get 8meg or so, you're computer is at the other end of the house & gets 12meg or so and your ISP's network is the bottleneck at 6meg or so. Stroller.
