    I know that a time capsule (1 TB) can be used as a backup drive but can it also be used as a modem router?

    My current router/modem is a D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless Router.

    If I buy the time Capsule, will that eliminate the need for me to continue using the D-Link Router/Modem?

    I mean, will it connect to the Internet for me as well as serve as a backup drive?

    Furthermore, if I switch from ADSL (telephone line) to Cable Broadband (underground), here in the UK, will the Time Capsule work for me?

    Some modem/routers are only meant to be used with the telephone line and some are designed for cable so i'm just wondering on this issue too.

    Appreciate the help,

    Time Capsules don't have built in modems. You will still need to use your existing modem/router.
