    Is it possible to use Time Capsule just for wireless storage with my iMac and MBP. I am using my school wireless network, therefore i don't need a wireless network, but the 1TB time capsule is very attractive, i want to transfer my database wirelessly into a harddisk.

    The Time Capsule would work just like a NAS then. You're going to want to use it via Ethernet though. You'll be limited to one wireless network at a time and the Time Capsule doesn't go anywhere upstream.

    network attached storage. Meaning you could just access the drive over your network.

    So can I access the drive without internet connection? Just a wireless connection between the drive and my iMac....
