So my mom's Time Capsule is starting to show issues with reliability. Currently it is still going but it is very long in the tooth.

What is the current replacement for someone like my mom who has me for a tech and I don't want to always be a tech when I'm visiting with her? Basically, is there a Time Capsule "replacement" on the market? My mom's place is such that the router in the closet it is in will completely cover her house and parts of her yard where she would use a device. So she doesn't need mesh that has been really popular lately.

I'm assuming at this point I would need a router and external HDD. I just want to have something that will backup over WiFi with nothing plugged into her MBP.
