dgebler Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)
I am replacing my TC after it suspiciously crashed after installing the new firmware.

I have a cable modem and an older DLink router from which my TC is attached (because of the home office configuration I can't have the TC be the main router). I also have a second wireless router to support by Vonage line.

I was told by an Apple Support Level 1 that I shouldn't use TC at the far end of the network because my TM backup data will be sent from the wireless connection inside the TC back up to the DLink router and then back down. Does that make sense?

If I cannot swap the router, should I not use TC as wireless device? Should I use a hard-wired connection for backups?

Thanks
