Can you use Time Capsule to expand a current wireless network the same way as Airport Express does?

I have a router at my home already and don't need to replace it, but I need a back up drive and more wireless area. Will this do the job for me, or do I settle for an Airport Express?

  • Yes, you can. However, I don't think it's recommended. You could however use it as your main router, and then perhaps use your existing router to extend the network. You'd have to check your current routers manual to see if that'd work.
