use as wireless remote storage with existing wired/wireless router

Looking for ability to backup to a hidden location within my building (lots of break-ins around here lately)... Would like to hide a Time Capsule in the attic and use Time Machine to back up through my existing wireless router.
Can Time Machine be set up to work this way?

    Yes. It can. Just set it up to client bridge mode and the airport can connect to the other wireless router and will become part of that network. However, I don't recommend putting your TC in the attic. It gets pretty hot all by itself. Instead I recommend finding a cool place for it to go.
