Backing up to an AirPort Extreme with Time Machine in Mavericks

With the release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Apple no longer supports backing up to a hard drive connected to an AirPort Extreme with Time Machine. This was a huge disappointment for me, as I had just purchased an 802.11n AirPort Extreme and portable hard drive for my backups when Mavericks was released, only to discover that Apple now requires a Time Capsule only to perform backups. Luckily, there is an easy workaround that will allow you back up to a portable hard drive that is connected your AirPort Extreme with Time Machine. Check out the instructions after the break!
