Hello,

I would like to upgrade my network by installing a more robust and secure router. I am currently using the time capsule as my router and backup drive for time machine. Is it possible to use the time capsule as a backup drive only and disengage the router portion of the device?
Thanks

you would set up your new router, then use the AirPort Utility to set the Time Capsule to be an extender - it still has to be on the network, but no, it does not have to be a router.
