How to set up time capsule with ethernet?

How do I set up a Time Capsule using just ethernet? I have to do a complete backup (1 TB) (AGAIN!) and it will take forever using WIFI. And the instruction manual even says that the first complete backup should be done using just ethernet, --but you know what, it does NOT say how in the world to do that.
I thought I had stumbled into a few minutes ago, as I had turned off the WIFI and just had it connected to my MacPro just using an ethernet cable, and yet Time Machine was able to find it and start backing up to it ... but that shut off my internet connection! I couldn't log into this site or any other site until I pulled the power plug on the Time Capsule.
I have FIOS internet connected to my ethernet 2 plug and the Time Capsule connected to my ethernet 1 plug -- would it help if I reversed them?
This thing is seriously fouled up. Should have just bought a Firewire hard drive.

Your TC setup is wrong.
You should bridge it.. If using Lion.. you poor guy.. expect endless networking issues..
This is not caused by the TC.. guess where the issue is??
To bridge you need to load in 5.6 utility because the one in Lion is useless.
Then see these instructions.. particularly the last bit for how to bridge.

Then plug the computer directly into the TC and all should work fine.. don't forget to turn off wifi otherwise it might slow it down still.
