I have an AirPort Extreme, which is pretty much the same as the TC less the hard drive. Here's how I used to have it set when I had an Actiontec router:

1) Disable wireless in the Actiontec
2) Connect the Ethernet cable from the Actiontec LAN into the TC WAN port
3) Set up the TC to "Distribute a range of IPs". This way it will still assign IP addresses but will work in conjunction with the Actiontec, which is still the DHCP server. I set mine to start the range at .200
4) Create your Wi-Fi network as desired.

And how do you extend the network. Hoping this is my problem.

I plugged in my TC to my telus Router (currently upgraded) via ethernet and I think they are fighting for the ip address. I had it setup originally and it was acting like an extra harddrive via wireless and now i can't figure out how to get it back to that. I had to do the hard reset just to get it to this point. I see it is set to bridge.

If you just want to to extend the network, you need to go to the Network tab and set the Router Mode to "Off (Bridge Mode)" and set the Wireless Network Mode to "Extend a wireless network".
