    hi, i'm thinking about buying the time capsule hardware. however i have a few questions about it first.

    I want to connect it with a cable to my PC running XP sp2 to use as a back up hard drive as i can't do it wirelessly.and then put my internet modem in the WAN port and have my macbook wirelessly use it for internet and as a back up hard drive aswell.

    Is this possible? or can it only be done with Macs ?

    hey man,

    you want to use your PC as a backup drive?? you cant do that, you are only allowed to backup onto external drives, such as a USB external HD.

    you wouldnt have any problems with the internet usage on your MB.
