    Hiya!

    I've searched and searched, and just can't seem to find the answer to this, so I figured it was time to stop lurking and finally ask!!!! :)

    I need to set up a Time Capsule on an existing network (Luxul router and three access points), so that I can back up my MacBook Pro and my Mackbook Air. Is there any way to eliminate the router function of the Time Capsule and use it only as a backup hard drive for these devices? That's all I really need this thing for, as my WiFi is rock solid, and the router is certainly good enough.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can shut off the wireless capability and set the router into bridge mode. That'll give you the hard drive feature and some additional ethernet ports for your exisitng network.

    I knew it had to be that easy, I just couldn't for the life of me find it stated anywhere...

    Thanks!
