    i live in a shared property - the wifi is provided by the live-in landlord. In a few months, I'll be moving out into my own place. In the meantime, can I buy and use a Time Capsule as a wireless backup solution, simply linking it into the existing network?

    Thanks

    Yes. You could get the Time Capsule to join an existing wireless network, then you can use it to back up your Mac. However, anybody on that network will also be able to see and access the TC's hard drive if you do not secure it properly.
