Relatively new to mac so bear with me... I've managed to get a time capsule at a good price and have followed the instructions. Q- do I need to run an ethernet cable from the capsule and the router at all times? I did to set it up but my virgin router is another room so I've now taken it out. I now have the flashing amber on. I dont actually need to use the time capsule as a network as my virgin router works absolutely fine. I only need to really use it as a back up to my mac and macbook really.
