I have an airport time capsule that was related to my router / modem.  I changed my router for a better.

I upgraded my router (modem).  Now my wifi has a different name and different password.  What should I do to ensure that my Airport time capsule is always related to the router - even if it always shows the green light.  How will I know if the airport is still save properly?

  • HOW THE AIRPORT TIME CAPSULE WIRELESS NETWORK IS PROTECTED?

    I implemented the airport Time Capsule, using a DSL modem connected to the internet as its bridge.  MacBook Pro was used for initial set up by the bolt of lightning to Ethernet connector and then disconnected and works perfectly.  Now, I would like to use Wi - Fi for my Samsung phone not iOS.  On the Samsung wireless I connect to my home network using a password.  Well, I don't think that a password was never set.  How can I configure my wifi at home to establish a password?   I don't think that the modem settings should enter in solving this for me, but I'll add that the modem required a static IP address be entered for this connection when its router features have been disabled for the connection of bridge.

    If the Time Capsule (TC) provides the wireless network, then you can secure it using AirPort Utility, as follows:

    • Run the AirPort Utility.
    • Select the TC and then, select change.
    • Select the wireless tab.
    • In the wireless security, select the type of security. I highly recommend that you choose: WPA2 Personal
    • Enter a password in the field password wireless. Enter the same password in the verify password.
    • Select Update.

  • Cannot move the files, photos at airport Time Capsule

    Hello

    I want to transfer files, photos of my Time Capsule but I don't see anywhere on my macbook. I think that something I messed up when I was put in place at the time of Christmas trees. I'll start from the beginning. Before I bought my time capsule I was connected to the internet through my wireless router, name: GMZ-83313. After that I bought my Time Capsule I set up and connected to the internet. Problem is that I have 2 networks who I can connect it is: GMZ - 83313 and Daniel Wi - Fi network (finally...) I have three really because I started to play with it more and I have network of Wi - Fi for the 3rd networkDaniel 5 GHz ;(

    I just want to add that yesterday I was able to transfer photos from my time capsule and it showed here where you can see GMZ-83313. Yesterday, it was Ant Time Capsule of Daniel it was working fine.

    I'm lost please help. I have attached a shot of my airport utility screen:

    Click gmz-83313 under the Shared heading in the Finder window

    A folder that represents the Time Capsule... hard drive that is named 'Data', unless you have changed the name... appears in the window on the right

  • Airport Time Capsule and change provider to wide band

    I recently changed my broadband provider and need help with my Airport Time Capsule. I currently have backup via an ethernet cable wireless for Macbook Pro and iMac, Plug and connect every day (although I've never been certain that it's the right or even the simplest method.)

    (1) that I have to back my TC and, if so, should what steps I take?

    (2) should what changes I make on the iMac and Macbook Pro?

    (3) when I bought the TC on the local Apple Store, I was told there was a way in which I could have the TC located in another room of the House, connected wireless constantly and discreetly safeguard to avoid Plug and connect the cable manually each time.  I have sought confirmation of this but could not find any instructions.  Expert advice would be very welcome.

    Thank you very much.

    If your router broadband main has changed, it is often necessary to reset the TC factory and redo the installation.

    I don't know if your main router has been changed as well as the offshore service provider broadband, but if so, then, reset is necessary. Only if the TC was bridged it can be left to himself... so to speak.

    1. to answer this, I need to understand why your backup is not configured for continuous backup now.

    2. of course, it is difficult to answer this question without knowing 1. but I'm not sure why you are constantly plug and unplug the TC.

    How the iMac's internet? It is connected by ethernet to the main ISP router and then you are exchanging autour cables because the TC is not configured in the network?

    Same thing with the MBP...

    3. what said you was not quite correct...

    The TC, FAILED to connect on the main wireless router or the modem... it must use ethernet. However, ethernet can run in the next room in the House and can backup from there without problem... more wireless computers.

    You can do wireless links by adding a second router wireless to apple... but makes it much more complicated but also less reliable. Wireless links are unreliable enough without adding a second.

    The best configuration is the TC directly connected by short cord to the main modem or to the router provided by your ISP. Then tell me the make and model of this device.

    If you were hoping for hitting the autonomous TC and connect wireless to the main router which is not going to happen. Apple makes their routers NOT interface with any other wireless brand.

    Tell me how the iMac connects to internet and MBP as well.

  • Airport Time Capsule ethernet and WiFi installation

    I am trying to set up my home network, but also, somehow, the practice run for the configuration of my future business...

    Here is the component.

    -Modem: Fast 5250 BELL FIBE Home Hub 2000.

    -Airport Time Capsule 1 t (a big)

    -AirPort Extreme (large)

    -AirPort Express (size of the Apple TV)

    Here are the different coverage area and device usually used in the:

    -office: Printer via USB or ethernet, ethernet MacPro, 2xMacBookAir.

    -Living room: Smart TV, Apple TV2, PS4 (all via ethernet if possible) as well as a bunch of iOS devices and laptop computer via a Wi - Fi connection

    -In room: IOS, Apple TV via Wi - Fi device.

    So good, here's the catch, the modem's in the entry closet surrounded by concrete, so I close the Wi - Fi on it. Cable Ethernet running from there, at the office, upstairs room and the main living area. The plan was to put the TimeCapsule 1 t in the office, extreme in the living room and express on the floor. But I already have problems that they can't be all connect via Ethernet in the modem... Oh! What a mess, he made... So I saw on the support page from apple, is it better to put the airport Time capsule 1 t as principal to create the network. So if I put the Capsule in the closet as the main will be backup my stuff via ethernet?

    Also, I have the older version of Time Capsule (dish 500 GB). Shud I use it as the main airport will be connected to it via ethernet anyway?

    And finally, I connect to the modem using PPPoE bell hand and another airport the main via Bridge DHCP mode. Is this fair?

    Probably all covered already in other posts sorry if it is redundant. Thanks in advance for taking the time to help me.

    The guarantee to the United States on the Time Capsule is 1 year and 2 years in a number of other countries. Apple will replace the device for you.  If the Capsule is longer under warranty but you have AppleCare implemented on one of your Macs, the time Capsule is still covered in this framework up to 3 years from the date of purchase of the time Capsule.

    If the Capsule is not covered, ask Apple to replace the device for you in any case.  If they won't, then unfortunately you yourself, because Apple does not offer repairs or spare parts for the time Capsule. If you are a DIY kind of person, you can open the Capsule and clean the fan or replace the fan. Be extremely careful when you open the time Capsule to shoot components, there are has Ribbon connectors that can easily tear or break if we don't take care.

    Airport Time Capsule A1470 (Mini!) Teardown - iFixit

  • Airport Time Capsule does not completely erase

    1. I sell my Time Capsule airport.  I've referenced the article here: check, repair, or erase a disc AirPort Time Capsule - Apple Support.

    2 - I have completed each step, as shown in the article and place the drive to perform a secure erase drive with 7 assists, which was completed in a little less than 24 hours.

    3. I then checked to ensure that it has been erased and when I click on the Time Machine preferences it says that there are 2 TB 2 TB.

    4. However; He also has dates marked for the "oldest backup" and "Last backup", which I would have assumed that there is no data stored, to include my more old and more recent data backups.

    5. Furthermore, I checked to see why he had these dates and clicked "Enter Time Machine".  To my surprise, there are a number of very recent backups between now and the date of the "more old backup.

    Note:

    6. the time Machine airport has been recorded since mid-September.  It was unplugged and stored in its intact original packaging.  I took it out a week or two just to check there and have been using it without any problem - works perfectly and perform backups.

    7 - the 'oldest' backup is dated the day I put the unit in stock.  It seems that there is no other 'safeguards' existing before that date; However, when I scroll back in time Machine, there are windows that appear earlier on this date in September, but there are no dates on top of these windows and I can't access it.

    8 as mentioned, it is said that 2 TB to 2 TB is available, so for me it's contradictory?

    9 - the device is connected to the internet and my computer has access to the unit all the time he was leading the erase process.

    10. I did not attempt to restore from any of these previous dates in the case of an error, and I lost everything!

    11 - Time Capsule airport is one of the newer models (tour version) purchased, I think, fall of 2014 or 2015 spring.

    Get help to help me erase this disc completely would be very well appreciated.  Thank you.

    See you soon

    It is truly erased... It would show a loss of ability otherwise.

    4. However; He also has dates marked for the "oldest backup" and "Last backup", which I would have assumed that there is no data stored, to include my more old and more recent data backups.

    This information is stored in the local plist... you also need to reset your local time Machine.

    5. Furthermore, I checked to see why he had these dates and clicked "Enter Time Machine".  To my surprise, there are a number of very recent backups between now and the date of the "more old backup.

    Time Machine can make snapshots the... so when the TC is not available it stores the files in your hard drive... This makes it confusing to people.

    11 - Time Capsule airport is one of the newer models (tour version) purchased, I think, fall of 2014 or 2015 spring.

    In the Time Machine disk tab... Make sure that it always shows full disk is available. So it should show up here at 2 TB free as in Time Machine. As long as this is the case, you're good to sell.

    Do a quick erase... and disconnect it from your network. Do not put it back. Time Machine can still detect it's available... did you do a factory reset you need to do this as well to get rid of your passwords etc.

    Start from a factory reset. No files are lost on the drive hard in doing so.

    Universal factory reset

    Turning off the TC... That is, remove the power supply cord or the power at the wall outlet, wait 10 seconds... Hold the reset button... be nice... Turn on always even now in reset... and keep holding in for another 10 seconds. You may need assistance because it is difficult to hold in reset and power on. It will show the success quickly flashing led front. Release reset... and wait a few minutes for the TC to reset and return with the factory settings. If the front LED flashes quickly you missed and simply try again. The reset is quite fragile in these... Press the key while it is just click away and not more... I've seen people bend lever or even break. I use a toothpick as a tool.

    NB. None of your files on the hard drive of the TC are removed... This simply clears the settings of the router of the TC.

  • iCloud photo library and airport time capsule

    I'm willing to put in place a back up of my macbook pro and think using an airport time capsule.

    However, I also want to start using iCloud photo library.  I prefer not to keep the original photos on any of my devices to keep the space they use to a minimum.  I was wondering if I can save the originals in the time capsule and also use it for back ups, although I understand that this is not the safest place to keep the two sets of data.  Alternatively, if I can get an external hard drive to time capsule with a job to organize the original photos.  Can the time capsule also back up this external hard drive.

    So I would then:

    • My macbook pro saved on the Time Capsule and, possibly, the iMac to my wife, if possible
    • Pictures saved on the hard drive external and saved on the Time Capsule
    • Photos stored in iCloud photo library

    Seems to me have asked a lot of questions and do not know if it's a very complicated way to get a result.

    1 - iCloud library is not a backup

    2 - question TM are really better ask in the forum OS for your computer - we are users of Photos either way by using TM - not the TM experts - these links are also useful - use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac - Apple Support - http://pondini.org/TM/FAQ.html

    3 - when you have the original photos on the TM volume you do not have a backup at all - when the TM drive fails, you lose all

    4 - TM I do not (see #2) backup hard drive attached

    5 - Yes, you can back up several computer for a TC - I do hourly

    6. the best IMHO is what I do - a mac equipped with a player of great size that all photos and original and is saved by using TM hourly and a clone of all the more days and other Macs with storage drive limited with optimized photos

  • Time Machine (on Mac) does not detect the airport Time Capsule

    Originally posted on the page of the airport, but seems to be the better question for this group. Sorry for the double post

    Looking for advice on how to get the Time Machine utility for access to my Time Capsule. I use an iMac in late 2012 with MAC OS 10.12 TimeCapsule is 2015 7.7.7 running latest firmware. Airport utility is the latest firmware 6.3.7.

    When I run the application Time Machine, Time Capsule is not detected. I tried the two WiFi and with cables connected Ethernet (not tried USB yet) and my Time Capsule doesn't have a lightning bolt or firewire ports.

    Open Airport utility & see the airport time capsule. I can see all connected devices, including the MAC, but no prompt activation Time Machine on the Time Capsule.

    I recently used TM on this iMac with a G-Technology drive. It auto detects the time machine and executes a back up. But airport Time Capsule will not.

    Any suggestions?

    Sierra has been problematic with the TC.

    1. make sure you don't have any charge virus protection software. In fact, I would say that disable all software 3rd part at the moment.

    2. make sure that you can actually write to disk of TC.

    Attach the TC disc in the finder and copy a file on disk, you can delete it later... It's just to ensure that you have full write permission. If it does not for the most part, you won't be able to use Time Machine... If you can then try TM immediately...

    Just to be clear, the TC is a network device. You have tested with ethernet and wireless... Ok.. They are only suitable methods. You cannot use USB. And clearly, TC has never had nor will never be ports Firewire or lightning.

    3. no chance that a reset complete TC. This will not delete the files on the hard drive, but you must make sure that the device is configured on the current computer.

    4. There are many positions in these days... read through them and do some research. Sierra is a bleeding edge new... So wait you to spend a lot of the precious liquid if you choose to be an early adopt.

  • Why didn't I go and turn my Airport Time Capsule to be able to backup?

    Hello.

    Why didn't I go and turn my Airport Time Capsule to be able to backup? It has been like this from day one. At the point where I keep my iMac off for a few days, my Time Capsule airport must be enabled and the new in order to save. Any suggestions?

    Hello Ladro Maltese,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    If I understand your message when you shut down your iMac a few days and then go back on you have to turn off your Time Capsule, then on again as well. I know how it is important for you to be able to have your Time Capsule works well. The first step that I recommend is to make sure that your Time Capsule firmware is up to date.

    This article includes information about how to manually and automatically check updates the firmware for your Time Capsule:

    Keep your base station to day.

    After updating the firmware see if the problem persists.
