setup with Apple Time Capsule (TC)

Previously used TC for router AND wireless data backup. Now want Alien to be router and use TC for wireless backup only. Computer connects to only 1 wireless network so that would now be Alien.
Question (1) does the LAN cable connect to Alien from the one TC Ethernet port or one of the 4 TC peripheral ports? (2) configuring TC - do I turn off TC wifi? Or do I “extend” a network? (3) What changes to settings in the iPhone app do I make? Thanks in advance

I would turn off Wi-Fi. Alien has WiFi6 where TC does not, so I would not want my devices to make the wrong choice and connect to the wrong AP for performance reasons.
I wish I could answer the other questions for you, but I have never used a Time Capsule so I am not certain on how it should be configured for best results.

what i have for a set up is running the LAN cable from the AMPLIFI Alien to the WAN port on the TC. In the TC settings I turned the WiFi to off and put the TC in Bridged mode.
Hope this helps!
