    Yes, you can configure it that way. However, it won't work well. If you make the Time Capsule a wireless client, performance is very poor: at best, you will get 2MB/sec, and < 1MB/sec most of the time.

    Apple support told me that "a Time Capsule is not meant to be used as a wireless client." The recent 7.6 firmware update does not fix this issue.

    I have a bug report open with Apple, and they asked me to provide my configuration details, which I did. No idea if or when they will fix this.

    At the moment, the honest answer to your question is "no".
