I'm confused by the "wireless" claim for the Time Capsule.

As a reference point, my HP 3310 All-In-One printer is wireless. It "finds" my home network automatically - no connections to a router are necessary.

Why would Time Capsule have to connect to my Comcast router to function wirelessly? I don't understand why. I don't need it as a network. I just want it as a completely wireless (i.e., no cables) backup hard drive.

Is that possible with Time Capsule and if not why not (ref HP printer). Thanks for your help.
