    In my apartment are 2 macbooks, both with wireless N, one roomate with a wireless G vista laptop, an airport express, PS3, Ipod Touch.

    I want to add a Time Capsule to my setup for storage and backup but am confused about wireless N and G.

    Will using just one wireless G product slow the whole network down? Backups on wireless G would be very slow...

    Can the Time Capsule do both G and N at the same time?

    Also I could do without the Airport Express but i do love the airtunes feature. It is a small apartment and i dont really need the range increasing feature of the Express, can it be set up just for airtunes?

    So confused...

    Yeah i get that it will work, my question is that once i turn on a wireless g product or have one on all the time like the airport express, will the network bump itself down to wireless G? or is the time capsule capable of doing both at once?

    No, it won't bump down in speed. Your G computer will run G speed, your N will run N speed.
