How do I turn OFF the Wi-Fi on a Mac 500MB Time Capsule backup device?

We have a problem.  Ever since the newly rolled out 500MB Mac time capsule was turned on ... most Windows wireless stuff stopped working 100%.  We turn off the Mac time capsule, and everything works perfectly.  We turn it back on again, and wireless end points stop working.

So, I would like to know STEP-BY-STEP instructions on how to turn OFF the Wi-Fi on a 500MB Apple Time Capsule.  We have a CAT-5e cable running from it to our main router, so we do not need/use anything Wi-Fi from the time capsule.  

I tried going to the IP address of the time capsule, but that did not open up any type of web page config.  I did not know if it had a special port for web access, if you have to use some special software, and/or if you had to do this from a Mac only.

Can you tell me how I can (if possible) turn off the Wi-Fi on a time capsule using a Windows XP PC.  If this is not possible, doing it from an iMac would work as a backup.

Thanks in advance!

On the iMac, open the Airport Utility (found in \applications\utilities). Once it finds the Time Capsule, click on the Manual setup button and select Wireless. Change the Wireless Mode to OFF.

You may be able to accomplish the same thing by downloading and installing the Airport Utility for Windows onto your Windows PC:
