Greetings,

I am planning for a backup Internet connection of my LAN in case of failure of my ISP, and was wondering if the following scenario could work / what it would take for the setup to work:

1/ Have my Time Capsule pickup a public Wifi signal
2/ Connect (Ethernet) Time capsule to my LAN via a switch, thus sharing the signal throughout the LAN

I have no problem connecting (Ethernet) my laptop to the Time Capsule, while Time capsule is connected to the Wifi (extend network option), but could not get the rest of the LAN to see the Time Capsule.

Any thoughts would be appreciated
James
