    I have FIOS internet service only (no TV) and just purchased a 2TB Apple Time Capsule.

    How do I configure the TC? Do I continue to use the FIOS router or replace it altogether with the TC?

    The TC doesn't have enough ports by itself. Should I continue to use the FIOS router and disable the wireless, or should I buy a gigabit switch to supplement the TC? Are there any performance tradeoffs?

    Thanks for helping this newbie. :)

    I would set the FIOS router to bridge mode or add the TC to the FIOS router's DMZ. Have all clients connect behind the TC for both simplicity and speed.
