    Here is what I would like to do and why -

    I was told the speed and features of Time Capsule/Apple Airport N routers are faster and better than other routers out there such as D-Link. I own a DGL-4100 wired which I thought was really good since it was not cheap. However, I am considering using the Time Capsule in it's place if it is indeed better performance and features.

    I want to continue to use my Linksys 54G wireless and leave it as a dedicated B/G router for all my B/G devices and Time Capsule as "N" dedicated so it won't slow down the network speed when a B/G device is in use. So, I will have both the Time Capsule and Linksys in place running as described above.

    So, any feedback on if this sounds good and rather or not I should keep or replace the D-Link router with the Time Capsule or just put Time Capsule in the chain as well would be appreciated.
