Can I plug working ethernet cable into TC, and use it as a wireless router?
I am living in a university where internet is supplied via an ethernet cable plugged into the wall at one end, and computer at the other. I currently have no modem/router/anything other than a hole in the wall and an ethernet cable.
Am I right to assume that I can plug that ethernet cable from the wall into the back of a TC, and it would then act as a wireless router for my room, no other parts necessary?

Yes - it's the same as plugging the TC into your ADSL modem using Ethernet - the TC will send out a Wifi signal and you tell it how to handle IP addresses.
