How to use a 2TB Time Capsule as a wired External Drive?

I do not want to use wireless for backup and no longer was a Time Capsule connected to my router.

How do I connect the two? I expect to need to buy a USB cable with male connectors on both ends, but only if I am told this would work.

Thanks

Ok, so I should buy the cable. Once I do, I will plug it into my Mac, where I have Time Machine running and used almost daily.

Will I be prompted when I pug it in?
