I bought an Airport Extreme and need to extend it's reach. I currently own a TimeCapsule. I believe the TimeCapsule also has the wifi creating capabilities of the Airport Extreme. Can I hook up my TimeCapsule to my modem and use my Extreme as an extender? If not, can I buy an Airport Express to do this?

You can use your extreme to extend your TC. See the Apple doc here.
