  • No, but you can get internet from the AT&T card by plugging into your computer before you get the time Capsule,click Apple, System Preferences, Network, assuming you see your internet card, click it and then I think click connect. Once you do get Time Capsule, follow the instructions of setting up your wireless network in the booklet they gave you. Then click the Apple (upper left corner), click System Preferences, Sharing, Internet Sharing(not the checkmark), Share your connection from:___________(click your AT&T card if you see it in the list),To computers using _____(click the ethernet checkmark with your time capsule connected with an ethernet cable from the WAN port on it, to the ethernet port on your computer), and then, the last thing of all, click the Internet Sharing checkmark. There shouldn't be any problems if you follow the steps I gave you.

    Hope you don't have any problems! :)

    No. you can do that through your mac though if you have AirPort. It's in system preferences > Sharing > Internet Sharing.

  • No, Ethernet cable to a DSL or cable modem. Or, it can wirelessly connect to and extend an existing network.
