    Yes (cut and paste below from apple...dont know about speed)

    Easy wireless networking.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to Time Capsule, then quickly set it up with the easy-to-use AirPort Utility, which is included for both Mac OS X and Windows. Within minutes, you and up to 50 others can use your Mac computers or PCs to surf the web, stream video, share photos, and more — without wires.3

  • yes you can use it as a wireless router, you will still need a modem of some sort. It should be as fast as your belkin N router as it uses the same technology.

  • so that means if you have time capsule there is no need to have airport extreme nor aiport express? it has all functions that airports does?

  • o yea
