Couple of things: most ISPs provide modems with built in wireless that just work out of the box. So the bad old days where you got a dumb box that then needed to be connected to a network device are long gone. I recently bought a NAS to provide backup and possibly streaming of shared media/personal cloud access that works natively with Time Machine and Linux/windows equivalents. This has been the standard for some time; after comparing what apple was doing with its time capsules versus where the market is for home network storage, there seems to not have been any reason to even buy the Time capsules when they were first released. Apple ceded this ground for good measure...
