Apple Time Capsule Bridged to Core

I would like to use my Apple Time Capsule Bridged to Norton Core.  Has anyone attempted this?  

My reason for wanting this is: 1. My ISP has IPv6 capability as does my Time Capsule.  So plan is to hook up my XBOX One X to a LAN port on the time Capsule to take advantage of this. 2.  I want to utilize my core for Apple Time Machine backup.  Yes I'm aware if I put the time capsule on one of the LAN ports of the CORE this would work, but I really want to utilize IPv6 so this is icing on the cake.

My thought is to cable as such... From my Modem ( Arris Surfboard SB6190 - single WAN out ) to my Apple Airport Time Capsule WAN Port, from the Time Capsule LAN Port to Norton CORE WAN port.

Time Capsule set up: Internet - Set to DHCP ( so it will acquire IP's from Core ) / Wireless - Turned off ( to minimize security threats ) / Network - OFF ( set to Bridge Mode ).

In theory this should work as far as I am aware but I am unable to get Core to play nice with the Time Capsule.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated..

Other Items of concern for me are:

1- Frequency that you need to restart the Core router to maintain internet access for both wired and wireless devices.

2 - Room mates Samsung Galaxy phone randomly drops connection multiple times a day.

3 - App's lack of ability to tell me what details of a threat that was successfully handled.  I guess in general the app seems to be directed to the person that is not at all technically savvy, there should be an 'expert mode' or something else for those that have some knowledge about these things or god forbid when you are asked by someone say from Apple to provide something that a router should give you... and you can not locate it in the app....

4 - vauge information on popups for devices or threats

5 - allow or block option should not allow new device on UNTIL after you have made the choice... kind of irrelevant to click allow after the device has already been on the network for an hour...

Anywho, apologies for the rant as it was not intended to be such.  I really like the concept of the CORE and would LOVE to keep using it.  Please Norton Address these items quickly...

Re: Apple Time Capsule Bridged to Core

dajer76 In essence having BOTH these devices on a network is expensive and overkill in that the Time Capsule has features not yet available in Core. That would be my obvious choice if I wanted to use its features in the manner you are.

My thought is to cable as such... From my Modem ( Arris Surfboard SB6190 - single WAN out ) to my Apple Airport Time Capsule WAN Port, from the Time Capsule LAN Port to Norton CORE WAN port.

I would reverse these with the SB6190 / Core / Apple Airport (set to AP mode) setup. Core then will protect everything on the network.

Questions 1 & 2 - Are related to the ongoing issue with the Cloud DNS services. Norton is actively working the issue.

Question 3 / 4 / 5 - These are creature features which you may present to the Norton team in the "Product Suggestions" forum here: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/product-suggestions
