What type of hard drive is in AirPort Time Capsule, i.e. is it just a retail type HDD or is it "enterprise" standard that can withstand 24/7 uptime?
Can the HDD within the unit withstand virtually permanent uptime as would be associated with a router. Enterprise quality drives should be able to cope but from experience, non-enterprise HDDs are not designed to be on 24/7. Non-enterprise would be found in laptops, for example – which are not expected to be live 24/7.
Can I combine two wifi routers
If I have a large home with two wifi routers, if I make one of them be the Airport Time capsule can I link the two together as one system with just one logon for wifi. Or I guess the question is can I make the other router a extension of the Airport Time capsule

Can I use two Airport Time Capsules in the same house as access points for two different floors?
Trying to set up a wireless network in a very large house. The Verizon router is in the basement and I want to create a wireless AP on the First floor and another one on the Second Floor. I also want to be able to save stuff on the network

Can I backup one Macbook Pro to two Time Capsules on same WiFi network?
I use Time Machine to backup my Macbook Pro onto a Time Capsule, which is also my WiFi router.
Thinking of buying a second Time Capsule, which I would use to extend my WiFi signal in the house.
If so, could I set Time Machine to backup my MacBook Pro onto both Time Capsules (so that I have a second backup disk, in case one Time Capsule fails..)?

Can I back my MacBook onto two separate Airport Time Capsules via Time Machine: one TC used as wireless router, the second TC to extend the WiFi?
I already have an Airport Time Capsule, which I use as my wireless router, as well as backing my MacBook on it via Time Machine.
If I got a second Time Capsule which I would use to extend the WiFi, could I set Time Machine to back my MacBook onto both Time Capsules?
Can i extend my network, with my existing one.. currently i have the at&t router 589.
i basically want to know if i can merge the two wireless routers to operate on the same network. Just to extend the range.

I have a large old house and use several airports to cover the distances. I want to upgrade to use two airports wired together. Will this work?
I want to use a CAT5e between 2 AirPorts. The far end of the house is like a bunker and cannot get any signal to my AppleTV. It would be nice to have one AirPort Time Capsule in the mix for backing everyone up. Any thoughts?

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?

Can the Airport Time Capsule help me keep the same information, mirrored, continuously updated in real time, synchronised across two devices + airport
I would like to connect an Airport Time Capsule to maintain a backup and synchronise to two other devices; MacbookPro and IMac. I would like the same data maintained (mirrored) across the three locations; allowing me to use any device and then be able to access and update files easily from any other device: e.g. work on IMac and walk out of the door with my Macbook and for the same files to be ready. I do not want partitioned drives or any hassles moving files around between drives. There is sufficient space on all devices. I prefer to transfer files through hardwires and/or the wifi network, rather than any cloud device to avoid subscription costs.
Will this work, or will I risk adding more complexity to my life needing to manage my files across multiple devices? (someone mentioned the airport might need two partitioned areas of the drive: one for each device, which would be a hassle and not manageable).
Is there a better solution? To achieve easy access across all devices to same files, as well as maintain a backup.
Thank you in advance!
What's the difference between the AirPort Extreme and the AirPort Time Capsule?
I'm thinking about buying one for my 2013 MacBook Air, but the only differences I can find between the two products are the names and the prices.

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.
