    Hello all.

    I am switching living situations where there is already wireless internet set up for FiOS TV/Internet/Phone. Unfortunately that modem is in a different room than my iMac/Playstation/TiVo, and need to connect accordingly.

    I have a 500gb Apple Time Capsule and wanted to know if there was a way for the Time Capsule to connect to the existing WiFi, pull the signal down, and pump it out through its ethernet ports to my various devices.

    Not with the Time Capsule (well at least you couldn't with the first generation). The TC likes to be the primary router :(

    IIRC you can do that with an AirPort Express and a switch on the ethernet port.
