    First post so bear with me. I use a 1Tb Time Capsule as my wireless router. On the other side of the room I have (wirelessly connected) my PS3, :apple:TV, Wii, and a Helios network media server. These are not all wireless N devices.
    I also have a previous generation Airport Extreme.
    Question. Can I wirelessly connect my Time Capsule to the Airport Extreme (on the same side of the room as the PS3, etc.) and then connect PS3, etc. to the Airport Extreme via the ethernet connections ?

    If this is possible would I (as I hope) get better network throughput as the only wireless connection would be at N speeds ?

    ...with that version AEBS, if all devices are N you should get better speed rather than running in mixed mode...
