Speed concern when connecting Airport Time Capsule to a wireless N router
I have a 2wire 5012NV (wireless N) as main router. I would like to wirelessly bridge a 2TB Airport Time Capsule (wireless AC) to it.
Can I get AC speed when running time machine backup for my rMBP (wireless AC)?
How about attaching a NAS to the Time Capsule via Ethernet? What speed can I get if I want to access the NAS wirelessly? Does the transmission pass through the wirelss N main router?

Can I put the Airport Time Capsule on a physical LAN (wired) in my house which has one other Wireless router on it (Netgear)?
My goal is to get an extended wireless network through a large house. i have CAT5 cabling through the house and can physically connect the two devices with one being the gateway DHCP router and connection to the cable modem. My other device is a newer Netgear WNDR 3400 which I'm fairly sure can be setup in what is called a "Bridge Mode" which I understand sets it up as a repeater. Thanks of your help.
I have Apple TV, many iDevices, an iMAC workstation and several laptops in the house. Would love to share common storage and extend the network.

Connecting the ATC to a FIOS high speed coax fiber router
What is the best method? Just using the fios router as the main and then turning off wifi, then plug in the Apple Time Capsule (ATC) into an ethernet port? What do I gain/loos, as the Fios router currently is extremely fast...What's the "best of both worlds" set-up configuration

Adding a time capsule to an existing network and configuring for the speediest backups?
I have a 27" i5 iMac on my home wireless network running off my ISP-provided wireless router. Many other devices like my TV and TIVO connect to this network so I'd like leave it as the creator of my wireless network.
I'd like to add a time capsule for backups from the iMac. I assume the time capsule can connect to my existing wireless network and I could back up that way but I was concerned that I may be sacrificing speed essential for backups compared with using the native wireless built-in to the time capsule.
Is it possible for the iMac to either:
- connect to both wireless networks at once
- connect to my existing router's wireless network but somehow switch to the time capsule's network when doing a backup.
I don't want to connect the time capsule direct via ethernet cable to my iMac as I would like to keep them separate for security purposes

Is there any way to set up a wireless guest network using the new AirPort TC if the AirPort TC must be configured as a bridge and not a router?
I have seen posts indicating that this is not possible with earlier AirPort Time Capsules (I have a 4th generation now), but I"m wondering if this setup is available with the new 2013 APTC? We have Verizon FiOS for both internet and TV. My understanding is that the Verizon router must be left configured as a router for our network, and not as a bridge, in order for our FiOS TV to function correctly. As a result, if I buy the new APTC, I must continue to configure the APTC as a bridge and use it only as a wireless access point, not a router. Any chance that I could set up a guest wireless network with this setup? Thanks in advance for the help.

I have a few questions related to Time Capsule Security.
(1) Is the connection between the wifi router and the AirPort Utility secured, e.g. via https?
(2) What ports are open for the 2TB internal storage?
(3) What ports are opened with the attachment of USB storage?
(4) Are there any publicly available security studies on the AirPort Time Capsule?
Thank you for your time.

using AirPort Time Capsule with both iMAC and PC
I have a new iMAC and an old PC that runs Windows Vista. Can I simply remove my old wireless router and replace it with a new Airport Time Capsule, and will the old PC still have a wireless connection? Is there anything else I should take into consideration?

Can I connect my Airport Time Capsule to my WD media player
I already have a large collection of movies in mainly avi format, and I would like to store my movies on my Airport Time Capsule.

Can I share an Apple SuperDrive using the new Airport Time Capsule?
I'm looking at upgrading my fiancee's macbook to a macbook air, but we would loose our last CD/DVD drive. I'd love to be able to just plug an Apple SuperDrive into the time capsule and share it to both my Macbook Pro Retina and her new Air. Is that possible? Otherwise I'll probably just get her a Macbook Pro non-Retina so we still have a CD/DVD player.

Squeezebox Support on Airport?
Does anyone know if an Airport Time Capsule would offer Squeezebox support? I'm considering moving from an all windows environment to an iMac with an Airport time capsule. Ideally I'd like to be able to access a music library from Squeezebox on an airport even with the iMac off. I realize there is Apple TV and the like, but I've got a good investment already in squeezebox devices and controllers I'd like to continue to use. Has anyone tried this before? Sorry, not very technical here so forgive me but from browsing the logitech site it looks like Squeezebox is incapable of connecting to N networks and we would need to change modem settings to B or G. I assume that is done at the wireless router and isn't any worse that what I have now? Any downsides here? Thanks everyone!
