Time Capsule Question

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I had some questions, maybe they seem obvious, or even dumb, but I have to ask.

At home I have Verizon DSL with a Westell 327W modem/wireless router. I have my iMac connected directly to that router. All works well, no issues. I also have a lap I bring home from work at connects to the router wire-lessly, and my son's PS3 connects wire-lessly as well. Somehow, I no longer have an antenna on my router (kids were screwing around with it, and nobody knows anything). Because I now lack an antenna, the range is very limited, and before I buy a replacement antenna I was wondering if I need it, based on my plans.

I am about to buy a Time Capsule for back-up/achieving purposes. I know it has wireless capability (I'll admit I don't fully understand its capabilities). I am planning on disabling the wireless capability on the modem I have, connecting the Time Capsule to the modem using a cable, and connecting the iMac to the Time Capsule using a cable. Will I have any issues connecting a Windows laptop, a PS3, or an iTouch to the Time Capsule wirelessly?

Any other advice recommendations?

Thanks all.

    No, everything sounds great.

    You'll want to see if you can put the modem in bridge mode though to make things easier.
