This may only have worked for me as my Time Capsule is the only router on my network and is effectively directly on the Internet at my public IP address. The only problem here is that every time I restarted my Time Capsule, it took a new public IP address, which I needed to record before disconnecting and trying through my mobile phone. Luckily my Internet connection is quite stable, so I'm hoping it will stay at the same IP address until it is next power cycled.
