    I know this will sound silly, but I'm forced into this configuration:

    Scenario: I'm connected to an infrastructure mode Wi-Fi network. I have a Time Capsule setup all on it's lonesome, not attached to the 1st infrastructure network. The Time Capsule CANNOT be connected to the infrastructure network.

    My question: Can the Time Capsule be seen as an AirDrop device for transfering files to it, or do I have to configure the TC as an infrastructure network, disconnect from the 1st infrastructure network & attach to the TC's network?

    No. Time Capsule does not have an Airdrop feature. Your best bet is to establish some sort of trust relation or port forwarding to allow file transfers between the networks.

    Ok. I can in no way bridge the networks so... I'm reading more about everything and it looks like I can just setup the 2 networks on my macbook and swap somewhat quickly between the 2 with the airport status menu icon.

    Yes. That seems the most convenient solution.
