I have purchased a Time Capsule | Trying.

I have given it an IP address, I can ping it, and get into and configure it.

However, I can get devices connected to it but no IP address is being delivered.

I have the DHCP side of things turned off as I do not want it to dole out IP addresses or be any router on my network.

What on earth do you need to do to this thing to make it work?

I don't understand what you mean by "However, I can get devices connected to it but no IP address is being delivered."

If you don't want it to be set up as a DHCP server and your other router is connected to the internet, the TC should be set up in Bridge Mode.

It is setup in bridge mode.

Bad terminology.

to connect it to my network | just use one of the ethernet ports?  Do I need a cross-over cable?

P.S. see attached screen shot.

Also, the IP address you assigned to the TC must be in the same subnet as your router, but outside the range used by the router's IP address. For instance, if the router is and its DHCP server uses to, set the TC to (Gateway is, subnet mask  See second screen shot.

If it is in bridge mode, connect the WAN port to your network. The ethernet port is auto sensing - doesn't matter whether you use a cross over cable or not.
