    Hi all,

    So my new 2TB TC is arriving today and I'd like some expert advice on how best to set it up.

    I have Virgin Broadband (UK), that comes in via their "Superhub" modem/router and I will attach the TC directly to it by ethernet.

    Seeing as the TC offers far better/reliable wireless coverage and I can put the Virgin SH into "Modem Only" mode, can I set the TC to be my sole wireless network 'provider'?

    I'd like to use the TC's Guest network too.

    Cheers.

    I'm using the Virgin SuperHub in modem only mode with an older AirPort Extreme. It turns off the wifi on the Virgin SH so your TC will be the only wifi available.

    Aha, good to know, thanks. :)

    So, using the TC, I'll have a 2.4GHZ SSID, a 5GHZ SSID and a Guest Network SSID?
