Will Time Capsule do automatic backups if it is connected via ethernet cable into a Verizon FiOS router, instead of using WiFi?

We're doing away with WiFi in our house and going with ethernet wired locations. Can I connect our Time Capsule to one of the ports in our Verizon FiOS router, then connect three Macs into the same router (using the other three ports), and expect the Time Capsule to perform the same automatic backup functions that it does in its wireless mode?

    Yes. Whether wired, wireless, or wired plus wireless - it's still called a "network."
