Right now, I'm running a hard drive connected to my time capsule, to stream movies, however I don't love the quality of the time capsule wifi. I am wondering if I can hook my external hard drive up to a normal wireless router and do the same thing.

Maybe. Some other routers will accept USB hard drives, however if your drive is formatted in HFS+ then it'll probably need to be reformatted to exFAT or NTFS to work on a non-Apple router.
You can turn off the wifi in the TC though, and connected it to a different WiFi router via Ethernet, and leave the drive attached to the TC.
