    Guys need advice on how to setup my network...
    i own three years old airport time capsule and recently i got airport extreme(newer model)..my question is how to setup my network..modem-timecapsule-extreme or modem-extreme-timecapsule.
    currently i setup modem to time capsule in basemate and wired from capsule to extreme on first floor...
    also i see that everything is trying connect to extreme even though i near to capsule....

    Since the Extreme is newer and is capable of higher performance it should go modem --> AirPort Extreme --> AirPort Time Capsule in Bridge Mode. The Extreme should be in DHCP & NAT mode if the modem is a simple modem and not a router itself.
