Can the Time Capsule be hooked up directly to my iMac and be used as a wireless network extender at the same time?

I have a Airport Express hooked to my DSL modem in another room and use my Time Capsule as network extender. The Time Capsule is in the office with my iMac. Is it possible to use the Time Capsule as a wireless network extender and also hook it up to my iMac via "hard-wire" so that I get the fastest data transfer speed available. Being that it sits right next to the iMac, I don't mind hooking it up directly to it.

    Yes, connecting your iMac to one of the Time Capsule's Ethernet ports will not automatically disable the wireless function of either Time Capsule or iMac.
