When I bought my Time Capsule 500GB a couple months ago, I swapped out my Airport Extreme 802.11n router and put the Time Capsule in it's place.

When I did that, EVERYTHING was either super slow, or would not pass network traffic. My AppleTV would not sync with iTunes, nothing would get online. I read somewhere on the Apple Support Forums that this was a problem with other users as well. I decided to put my Extreme back in place, and put the Time Capsule on my entertainment center and use the three ports in the back to feed my DirecTV box, Xbox and SlingBox.

In this configuration it worked perfectly, but as a router it did not work well at all!

I would suggest doing a hard reset on the Time Capsule and start fresh and see if that works. Only configure the basics. You do not need to configure DMZ, and only NAT if you need the device to share a public IP (ie: functioning as a router)

Also, if you are configuring wireless extending (more than one Extreme, Express) to link your network together, do it last to be sure it's not creating an issue if there's a configuration problem.
