Apple - Airport Time Capsule Setup with Westell Modem (BellSouth DSL)


Apple - Airport Time Capsule Setup with Westell Modem (BellSouth DSL)


Just bought the Apple Airport Time Capsule (2TB) hoping to replace my Linksys Router. I know the whole BellSouth DSL Westell Modem setup sometimes adds more complications than it should. Before start this task, wondering if anyone had any experience & advice.

My current setup in the Westell Modem is passthrough where the pertient access information is being stored in the Linksys router instead of the Westell Modem. Wondering if that will be an issue when setting up my Apple Airport Time Capsule. I have googled it, havent found any advice or suggestions. I'm wondering if i need to change Westell setup to a different mode therefore storing the pertient access information in the modem instead of the router.

Any advice?
