Windows 7 laptop migration to MacBook Pro via AirPort Time Capsule
I would like to migrate my data files from a Windows 7 laptop (documents, pictures, music) to a MacBook Pro, probably using an external hard drive. Can I treat the AirPort Time Capsule as an external hard drive for both machines via the USB port?

using AirPort Time Capsule with both iMAC and PC
I have a new iMAC and an old PC that runs Windows Vista. Can I simply remove my old wireless router and replace it with a new Airport Time Capsule, and will the old PC still have a wireless connection? Is there anything else I should take into consideration?

Does the AirPort TC support having an ethernet connected network printer that is accessible to both MacBookAir and PC laptops?
I am currently using my printer's USB connection and ethernet connection quasi-simultaneously (both physically connected, but only print from one connection at a time). The ethernet connection goes to my LinkSys home router. The printer's USB port is connected to a work Windows7 PC laptop directly for corporate VPN security reasons and so cannot be connected to the AirPort TC USB port. I am wanting to replace my LinkSys router with the AirPort TC so that I can also set up Time Machine backups on my MacBookAir. Secondly, can I have my Windows Vista PC do backups to the AirPort TC (as a network drive)?

Backup and Restore or Airport Time Capsule
I'm conscious of only having one backup of my valuable files. I am thinking to use the Airport Time Capsule as my primary network storage location as well as a backup location for my Macs, but don't want to lose everything if it's HDD fails.
Can you backup the Airport Time Capsule (ATC) to an external USB HDD/SSD and can this be scheduled? How?
Can you recover the ATC from the external USB HDD/SSD if the internal ATC drive fails? How?

Does the AirPort Time Capsule (2013) allow USB or Ethernet-connected drive to be used as part of the Time Capsule functionality?
Would like to explore connecting a USB-drive-enclosure and/or an Ethernet-drive-enclosure to allow more backup space to be available to users on my home network. Even if this would supercede the internal drive, I would find it preferable to other options like SLUG or FreeNAS which can be cheaper but potentially less-reliable.
For example, an Ethernet-capable NAS of, say, 10TB could be connected to one of the Gigabit ports, but would the AirPort Time Capsule (2013) recognize it as an extension of the internal storage, and therefore part of the Time Capsule storage media used for native Mac backups?
If there's not a way to do that, how arduous or risky is it to move the existing backups from the Time Capsule's internal drive to an external drive (ex: Ethernet-connected NAS) to free-up space on the 2TB/3TB internal drive, without corrupting the contents of that internal drive? Is there a way to initiate the move from within the Time Capsule itself, and thereby avoiding downloading/uploading all of that content over-the-network (to/from the PC) unnecessarily?

Adding a time capsule to an existing network and configuring for the speediest backups?
I have a 27" i5 iMac on my home wireless network running off my ISP-provided wireless router. Many other devices like my TV and TIVO connect to this network so I'd like leave it as the creator of my wireless network.
I'd like to add a time capsule for backups from the iMac. I assume the time capsule can connect to my existing wireless network and I could back up that way but I was concerned that I may be sacrificing speed essential for backups compared with using the native wireless built-in to the time capsule.
Is it possible for the iMac to either:
- connect to both wireless networks at once
- connect to my existing router's wireless network but somehow switch to the time capsule's network when doing a backup.
I don't want to connect the time capsule direct via ethernet cable to my iMac as I would like to keep them separate for security purposes

Can AirPort Capsule be used as an external wireless hard drive separate to Time Machine?
Can I save content directly to the Capsule, or does it only backup what is saved on my Mac device?
I want to back up my MacBook Air via Time Machine on my Time Capsule, but I would also like to put files such as photos & music onto an external hard drive (hopefully Airport Capsule) & not leave on my computer.

Can I connect a printer to my time capsule using WPS?
I have a Canon Pixma wireless printer that can only connect to WiFi via WPS. I have a Time Capsule 2TB router. I do not see a WPS button on it. Is there a way to trigger the WPS functionality via some other means? In other words: without using a USB cable, because that is connected to my wife's desktop PC, how can I virtually press a WPS button on my Time Capsule to connect the printer to my apple network?

Can the AirPort Time Capsule be used to create a WLAN network by connecting it to my main router?

Can I connect the Cisco RV042's LAN port to AirPort's WAN port and still let the RV042 to do load balancing simultaneously as AirPort provides internet connection to LAN through Wi-Fi. If yes, How can it be done?
