    Hi

    I have just bought time capsule to replace my old bt phone hub/wireless router.

    How is the best way to set this up?

    Should i go into my Bt hub an now turn the wireless off an connect my TC via the ethernet cable.

    One other thing id like to know is how to set up all my laptops an Apple TV to have there own ip address as when i now download from some sites my connection is really slow.

    Yes - turn the wireless off on your bt router and hook it up to the time capsule via ethernet.

    However, i'm not sure if this will speed up your connection - as currently all your devices should be being assigned different dynamic IPs anyway.

    If it is the same sites which you always find slow, it is more likely to be their server than your connection setup.
