Does the latest Airport Time Capsule support VLAN IEEE 802.1Q?
I have been looking for some time to buy one of those, but my provider requires VLAN IEEE 802.1Q support for the router to connect TO the Optical Network Terminal. I saw many people in forums having issues on this sometime ago.
I don't want to use the router supplied by the provider as a bridge, as it just adds overheads.

Can I put the Airport Time Capsule on a physical LAN (wired) in my house which has one other Wireless router on it (Netgear)?
My goal is to get an extended wireless network through a large house. i have CAT5 cabling through the house and can physically connect the two devices with one being the gateway DHCP router and connection to the cable modem. My other device is a newer Netgear WNDR 3400 which I'm fairly sure can be setup in what is called a "Bridge Mode" which I understand sets it up as a repeater. Thanks of your help.
I have Apple TV, many iDevices, an iMAC workstation and several laptops in the house. Would love to share common storage and extend the network.

Can I use time capsule for iTunes and iPhoto libraries
I have a macbook and macbook pro which are both used independently. I would like to use a time capsule to store files and iTunes and iPhoto libraries. What I am looking to achieve is to be able to stream wirelessly my files between either of the computers and access iTunes and iPhoto from either machine. The majority of hard drive space would then be freed up on both machines and for no loss of service. I would think that playlists and albums would be unaffected by this change. Any advice would be gratefully received. Many thanks

Is this compatible with the Arris SB6141 (SurfBoard)?
I just bought this modem, brand new, and I was told by Comcast that it isn't compatible with the AirPort Time Capsule 2TB because the time capsule is too "advanced" and / or "hi tech"....he didn't use that exact terminology but that's exactly what he was getting at.
Now, I'm not Steve Jobs or anything but I work in IT and have a masters in Information Systems. I'm just having a hard time believing this brand new, highly rated, extremely popular modem isn't compatible with such a popular Apple router.
Does anyone have a definitive answer for me? Many thanks in advance.

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
