I have a Time Capsule and rely on Time Machine to handle backups. Will these nodes co-exist with my existing Time Capsule/Machine and extend WiFi?

  • Best Answer:

    Put your time capsule in bridge mode and turn networking off. Then connect it via ethernet to the Velop. That way it just acts as a server for your backups. You won't want the time capsule to do any of the networking.

  • Yes, use the AirPort Utility to configure the AirPort Time Capsule and use the Linksys app to manage the Linksys Velop.

  • Three previous helpful answers here, but two seem to contradict. Brandan (1/10/18) says simply set TC to extend, implying keeping it attached to the network wirelessly. On the other hand, Avery (1/15/18) says to turn networking off and connect TC by ethernet to Velop. Possibly both are good ways to do it. Is there a consensus on which would work best?

  • Yes, in airport utility, set your time capsule to “extend WiFi network” then select the Linksys network! Done and dusted!
