Not sure I follow but I think you're saying your internet goes directly into the AppleTV box via Ethernet from a cable modem.
How were the other devices getting internet before - if there were several, were they getting it over wi-fi or was one of the computers doing internet sharing?
AppleTV is not a wireless base station, and it will not relay the internet to other devices, though other devices may see AppleTV across an ad-hoc local network on wireless.
I'm also confused when you say 'cable modem to ATV internet WAN port' and also 'cable connected from an ATV ethernet port to my Lenox laptop' - AppleTV has a single network socket - presumably you only have one connected at a time.
I really messed this post up...I was just logging back in to see if I could change it...I did connect my ATV today...the problem is with my TIME CAPSULE..I can't connect with it.
Try Time Capsule forum, though if problem still partly involves AppleTV elaborate here.
Clearly I'm very tired.
Know the feeling!
