does this replace the BT Home Hub, and is there any benefit in buying one as I have just ordered the Time Capsule just now?

    The current Time Capsule has exactly the same wireless capability as this AirPort Extreme Base Station - it is quite simply the AEBS along with a hard drive inside a similar but larger case.

    Whether or not you need, or can use, a second router to extend your network is for you to determine. I'd suggest first waiting to see how the Time Capsule's network covers your needs. If you find its network covers all your territory, but you might like to add music streaming, the AirPort Express makes the perfect addition to the main unit, whether it's the Extreme or the Time Capsule.
