can't see the time capsule on network

I have a router modem wireless method

2.5/5.0 and I want to continue to use the wireless installation.

I am up-to-date on El Capitan.

The router via ethernet is an express airport 2nd generation connected to an amp for antenna and in addition to the express via ethernet is a time capsule of 3rd generation? in a press room feeding a number of multimedia devices.

What I want to do is to backup my Mac Book Pro on the time capsule which I see in the finder, but not its content, nor I see

It is contained in Time Machine.

Can someone help?

It can be very difficult if not impossible... or only very little reliable if you do not connect the computer directly to the TC...

Anyway... have a go... find the IP address of the TC of airport utility... no chance then don't first plug the computer by ethernet directly to TB. Use Thunderbolt for the ethernet card if your mobile phone is failed.

Once you have the IP address... Use the top Finder menu... Go, connect to the server.

Type AFP://10.1.1.46 (substitute your real IP of the TC).

When the connection is done put the password and save in keychain.

It will work up until the IP... Therefore, force is not to change.

Still had problems give me a screenshot of the airport with the pages of summary of the Express and the TC utility.

    I have 2 imacs and a laptop computer and you want to back up all three wireless via time capsule on my existing wifi network. If we can also use the time capsule as my wifi and replace my uverse wifi, that would be great. possible?

    If you want to make sure that you will be able to get the Apple support in case of problems or questions with your backups, you must use the wireless Time Capsule to back up your Mac.

    As long as the time Capsule provides a wireless signal, you can decide who to your 'main' network, then use it wireless Uverse for "guest", or children. If you do not need the Uverse router/modem wireless at all, it is possible to turn off wireless on the device and make it work only as a support modem/router...with Uverse wired.

    At this point, you can start thinking about how you want to configure things and get back in touch if you need some advice on how to do it.  We need to know what operating system that uses the Mac that you normally use to administer the time Capsule, provide good instructions, if you need it.

  • Connected to but the Airport utility does not see the time capsules

    Hi, I have several time capsules.

    I can connect to the web, but the airport utility does not see the time capsules.  I tried to restart the time capsules, router, computer, but I still don't see any of the devices on the network.

    What now?

    Have you tried the airport utility in the iOS version... Download on the App or iTunes store and load... Works better than the Mac version.

    Other than what Mac running what OS do you use?

    This modem you have and how is the installation of TC on the network.

  • Can I use the Time Capsule wireless for multiple computers without using it as a router?

    I am looking for an external backup for 2 computers drive.  I have a desktop iMac and MacBook Air.  I like the idea of being able to back up my MacBook Air wireless, but I need to make sure that it will work the way I need to.

    I already have a wireless router that works well for me, I don't need the time Capsule to act as a router. I'm just needing a wireless backup drive.  So, the question is, can I use the only time Capsule as a storage device for backup of wifi or do I also have to use it as a wifi router?  My fear is that the router service is not as good as the router, I currently have.  I live in a big House of 2 floors, making it very difficult to receive a strong signal throughout the House.

    can I use time Capsule only as a backup wireless storage device or do I also have to use it as a wifi router?

    Time Capsule need to connect to your router/modem existing using wired Ethernet wired, permanent.

    If you plan to use the time Capsule to back up your Mac with the help of the application Time Machine on every Mac, the Mac will have to save on the wireless signal Time Capsule for the process to be officially supported by Apple.

    While it is possible to turn off wireless on the Time Capsule and try to save it to your existing wireless network... and it pourrait work... but there will be no Apple support backup problems... so it would be a good idea to plan to use Time Capsule wireless backup purposes.

  • Can't get the Time Capsule network to see Airport Extreme?

    I have a network set up through my Time Capsule and I want to express with my Airport Extreme, the problem is that I can't get the network to see Airport Extreme - or rather, we'll see, but when I try to connect to it, it starts to connect, and then I get an unexpected error. I tried to restore both their factory settings and did a restore forced several times to the Airport Extreme, but nothing helped. I made sure to affect my IPv6 link-local only, I've even re-created my network several times (always with the Capsule of time as the main base station, but nothing seems working.

    Any ideas would be very useful.

    The Airport Extreme and time Capsule have been purchased during the last month, and I'm under OS10.11.1

    First of all, try to update your software El Capitan to the current version of operation... 10.11.4... which was supposed to solve some of the bugs that cause the message "unexpected error".

    If still no help, try using an iPhone or an iPad for the configuration.  After the back if you don't know how to proceed.

  • Can I use my time capsule for wired Internet?

    The fundamental question is, I can connect my time capsule to my wireless internet router and then use the capsule to connect my iMac to the Internet with an Ethernet cable?

    The back story: I have an i7 iMac late 2009 that has worked perfectly until that somewhere around OS x Lion. The update came, and suddenly the wifi became shotty; intermittent connectivity that could last from 2 hours to 2 minutes and often, the computer would suddenly turns off. So, I just took an Ethernet cable from my gateway wireless comcast directly to my time capsule and then another was running for the TC to the iMac. It worked perfectly when the router and the iMac were in the same room. Since then, we moved and there is only a single coaxial connection of work in the new House, and this room that can hold your desktop. Now, I searched high and low for a fix for the problem of wifi, without success; reset the PRAM, change the wireless channel reset wireless packet, you name it I tried it (with the exception of a reinstallation of firmware lion before the airport summary-pretend). I really do not have the money to have someone come run an Ethernet cable through my walls now or to understand the situation of coaxial cable (I tried to do it me but there are about 10 outputs and the room that I want to use seems to actually be connected directly on a former satellite Hughes-NET on the side of the House). Now, this wireless to the dream of the Ethernet connection is my only option... Anyway I can make it work?

    The fundamental question is, I can connect my time capsule to my wireless internet router and then use the capsule to connect my iMac to the Internet with an Ethernet cable?

    The answer is not quite as simple.

    Yes... If your 'hand' wireless router is another Apple wireless router.

    No.... If your 'hand' wireless router is a part 3.

    However, you have two options if you have a 3rd party router that provides to your wireless network:

    (1) add an AirPort Express and it set up to 'join' the network wireless provided by your 3rd party product. Then, the AirPort Express can provide wired Ethernet cable of the Time Capsule and the iMac can connect to the time Capsule using Ethernet as well.

    (2) If you can not run the Ethernet cable... (always the best performance option)... a pair of Ethernet over Powerline adapters could be able to send the Ethernet signal via power lines the existing AC in your House.  In other words, the theory with EoP devices is that you already have the wiring in place, you must just adapters.

    An adapter would be located near your router 'primary' and plugged into an outlet. A short Ethernet cable connects to the router to the EoP adapter.  In contrast, an another EoP adapter is plugged into a power outlet near the time Capsule and a short Ethernet cable connects from the adapter to the time Capsule. Then, the iMac connects to time Capsule using a different Ethernet cable as well.

  • Can I use a time capsule airport as my external hard drive?

    I have all the products in my house, 5 iPhones apple, 2 MacBooks, an iPad and an apple tv Setup.

    1 first question is the will of the time capsule (I'm looking at the version of 3 TB) Act as my external hard drive?

    2.second the capsule is essentially like a wireless router? If so,is the wifi for your apple products much better? If anyone could break it down into secular terms and highlight some of the advantages and disadvantages , I'd greatly appreciate it.


    (If your wondering I use my Macbook to store a LOT of music, photos, and surf the internet).

    Purchase of a disk external drive for my Macbook Pro is on the top of my to do list, I currently don't have 15 GB of free storage. I know that's not enough space for the computer to function properly. I definitely don't want what I just bought in March. Im trying to learn more about this kind of thing would have made very different when buying my Macbook if I could go back to March.I would be easily paid for the 256 GB of flash storage and would have probably just waited to buy it at all, until the so-called new macbook arrives soon.

    Once again thank you to all those who can help you!

    Mr.705

    1 first question is the will of the time capsule (I'm looking at the version of 3 TB) Act as my external hard drive?

    Although the Capsule is primarily designed to be used in conjunction with Time Machine for backups, it can be used as a network drive for file storage.

    2.second the capsule is essentially like a wireless router?

    He does. In simple terms, you can think of the time Capsule as a wireless router with an Ethernet switch and HDD.

    If so,is the wifi for your apple products much better?

    Not really. Your Apple products are designed to work with routers wireless of any manufacturer, not only those provided by Apple. However, Apple routers are simple to implement and the application to administer is available on both the Mac and iOS devices. There is a version that works on Windows PCs, but is currently outdated and does not support to administer the current base station 802.11ac airport.

  • Satellite A200 - I can't see battery time remaining single percentage

    Hello

    I had a Satellite A200 on Vista and XP, and I'm NOT able to see the remaining estimated battery time. I see only the percentage left.

    For example, I use my laptop unplugged for over an hour (my comments) and I can only see the percentage left (45%), but I can't see the time remaining.

    I have a problem with Vista or XP.

    Is - this natural? What can I do to see the time remaining?

    My computer with two hard drives and 2 starting systems has the car crash in the solid state. When I got the new drive and tried to restore from time capsule, I lost some data. How can I see what backups are on the time capsule? My laptop is also saved to the time capsule. Everything is in 'Data' when I look through the Airport utility. I think that the information that I've lost are still there since I was a Capsule 3 to.

    Time Machine backup to a sparsebundle.

    The sparsebundle will use the share name of computer. So, it should be obvious who is your Macbook and that is your Macpro.

    Open the sparsebundle in Finder and keep open the subfolders until you get to the backup of each separate hard drive...

    You has of course set the exclusion in Time Machine?

    By default, Time Machine will exclude your second drive unless you have included it. Did you?

    Once you get to this level during the backup, you can do a full restore manually whenever you want.

  • How can I add a password to an existing network of the time capsule?

    How can I add a password to an existing network of the time capsule?

    I guess you mean that time Capsule has already been configured to provide a signal of wireless network, correct?

    Do you mean that the network has no password at all right now... or... do you mean that the network has an existing password, but you want to change the password?

    If the Time Capsule and MacBook Pros are not on the same network, the MacBook is not backup in the time Capsule. You probably see what snapshots leaving MacBook on the local disk, until the two are reconnected. If you don't want that to happen, disable Time Machine on a different network.

    Good day.

    You already have another router Apple... as an AirPort Extreme or Airport Express that provides the signal of your wireless network?

    If not, what is the serial number and model of your modem?

    Finally, what operating system is installed on the device you will use to install and configure the time Capsule? If it's a Mac and you're not sure what operating system it uses... click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen, then click on about this Mac, and post back with number of Version of OS X that you see there.
