My new airport does not detect my existing WiFi network, I can connect only via the LAN.

Bought a new airport 1 TB TimeCapsule and I wanted to add to my existing via a WLAN network. It does not detect it and I can connect only via the LAN. What I am doing wrong?


Unfortunately, unable to connect to a 3rd time Capsule part wireless using a Wi - Fi.

You need to connect to the time Capsule to your existing modem/router using a wired Ethernet cable connection, permanent... like the Time Capsule Setup Guide illustrates.

If you really don't want the time Capsule to connect using the wireless... she can do... If it gets a signal to another Apple wireless router. So if you were ready to add another Apple... as an AirPort Extreme router... and connect it to your existing Ethernet cable router/modem and configure AirPort Extreme to broadcast a wireless signal... .then.. .the Time Capsule would be able to connect in this way, assuming that he is where he can receive a good quality of AirPort Extreme wireless signal.

    I have a HP Pavilion notebook. My system does not detect my sd card and I can't eject. Help?

    From my understanding, most laptops allow you to simply remove the SD card back.  Others have a simple spring mechanism that requires you to press the memory card slightly until you hear a "click", similar to a click on a retractable pen, which must eject the card.

  • Pavilion PC laptop 15-p061ne: new laptop does not show same adapter wireless network, among other things.

    Hello, my name is Farouk

    So recently I bought this laptop in a store here in Egypt. I saw him and I really liked it. There was a problem, however, it did not come with microsoft windows at all, but he came back. I bought 8 64-bit Windows and installed without any problem at all.

    Now that is the problem, when I came to connect to the Internet, there was possibility to connect to a Wifi hotspot. My only choice was to connect via ethernet cable. Now, I'm sitting here next to my router connected to an ethernet cord, wondering what to do, and I hope I can get some answers here.

    Additional information:

    -L' wireless network adapter appears not slot change adapter settings

    -DXDIAG does not display my NVIDIA graphics card

    -Beats audio does not work

    -J' have a ton of "other devices" in Device Manager

    -The only function keys that work are f1, f7, f8. All others do not work

    -I can not change my brightness


    Your laptop is not supported by HP for Windows 8.  Only 8.1 and 7, 64 bit.

    The "ton of"other devices"in Device Manager," are all devices that need drivers such as the wireless card.

    Problem is there is no W8 driver for the wireless card model that your laptop is.

    See if these drivers wireless and bluetooth works.  If they are not, I highly recommend you use your ethernet connection and take the free update for the windows store W8.1 and then install the relevant drivers you need.

    This package contains the Broadcom Wireless LAN driver that is required to activate the LAN adapter wireless Broadcom integrated in the laptop models running a supported operating system. This package also contains the Broadcom Wireless Utility application.

    File name: sp69014.exe

    This package contains the Broadcom bluetooth driver and software for the laptop models running a supported operating system. Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 driver is required to activate the bluetooth 4.0 Broadcom devices and is compatible with Broadcom bluetooth 3.0 and earlier versions.

    File name: sp66402.exe

    SMBus Controller: 2nd driver on the list is the automatic installation file.

    PCI device: first driver on the list.

    One of the unknown devices probably has this driver...

    One of the other strangers probably this driver...

  • Windows 7 does not detect my printer, even if I can enter an IP address and access

    I just bought a HP Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium laptop computer for my wife a week ago. I made the easy transfer of his old laptop XP and reinstall the printer driver for our network Canon MX860 printer. It is networked via an ActionTec wireless router. The MX860 is configured for a connection cable and a cable cat 5 to the router has. Printing worked for a few days and then stopped. I uninstalled the driver and redownloaded the driver from Canon site for 64-bit Windows 7. Then, I tried several ways to get the printer working:

    1. on a wireless connection to the router, I used the Canon Installer, I get an error saying that no printer was found and I had to cancel the installation. (On the laptop, I am able to connect to other computers on the network and surf the net. I can enter the IP address of the printer ( and pull upwards to a Web page showing he has an active status. I also have other laptops Windows XP that connect this way and have no problems.

    2. also wireless, I went to the printers and devices in Windows 7 and has chosen to add a printer and then chose the network option, he looked for a minute or two and then he said No printers found.

    3 and 4 - I tried 1 and 2 with the laptop connected to the router via a cat 5 cable.

    5. I tried to configure the printer via USB and works. Then I tried to change the port of the printer with a network port, and in the process GET a message that says the printer can not be detected.

    When I click the network button on the Start Menu, it then shows the printer. If I double click on the printer, it gives a message saying that the WSD driver is installed successfully, then the load the HTML of printers page, and once again, it shows the device according to availability. But I am not able to print.

    Therefore part of Windows 7 detect my printer and allows me to access it via HTTP and the other part of Windows 7 says that it can't find it.

    Is there hope for me? My wife wants to print and I feel like a jerk, because I spent the hours and have nothing to show for it. I bought the computer at Costco a few days ago and I guess that one option would be to return. I know that the printer works on a laptop with XP and Vista. I'd be better off getting another machine or even another machine with a different OS?

  • After installation, my computer does not detect my Laserjet 1536dbf network and I can't print

    I installed my printer on my home network. Now, my computer can not detect so I can't print.

    I noticed that the printer indicates a different IP address that the router assigns to him and which is visible on the router configuration Web page. Reset of the printer and my router has no effect.

    I had to reset my router a few days due to a failure in broadband. Could be the cause of the problem?

    It turns out that reset the router after the failure in broadband, the other day off the ethernet port to which the printer is conncected. It's strange because the previous resets did not do that.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Flash Pro CS5 shows does not text when I test movie/export... only on the stage.

    Exactly what the subject says. I am a novice and regardless of how I export the thing (such as a picture or a movie and in any format), I can't see the text. It's particularly frustrating, because the text is the entire basis of my animation.

    Tried to convert text to clips, no difference. The weird part is, I could test the thing early on with no problem - text displayed and any. I should add: I have used SEVERAL fonts... and I think it was when things started does not.

    An answer to this would be greatly appreciated. I'm working on a deadline and if you know how to solve this problem, it would make a big difference in my life.

    EDIT: They are not unusual fonts - Helvetica, Times New Roman, etc.

  • KitKat reset button does not work, how to reset when I can't get past the first screen?

    I want to do a factory on my Acer Android tablet kitkat rest, I can't go past the screen lock, even if the pin code is correct.  I have tried a paper clip in the hole reset several times, but nothing happened.  Nothing has changed.

    I read some comments and opens to the rear to remove the battery, but there is no way that I can do.  Something has been said about pulling the gray wire a little bit, but I'm suspicious

    All I want is for the tablet to g back to factory default.  Is there another way?

    Oh, downloaded the user manual and who do not uncompress right.  I have no file to play it's a user's guide.

    Thanks, but I watched a video on that showed how to hold down the sound buttons and power at the same time until the menu appears where you can choose to do a factory reset.  It worked!

    Thank you for your time.


  • I am not able to connect to the main wifi network but can connect to the network of comments.


    This is something new, I am facing to where I am not able to connect to a main network of airport extreme, but can connect to the network of comments. Guest network works perfectly fine while the main network does not connect to devices in the home. I also found that none of my base stations are visible in the airport utility (I Airpot extreme and Airport Express on the same network). Help, please.

    The first step in troubleshooting with this type of problem is to perform a complete network power cycle on your network. If you decide to do...

    Power off all the devices on your network... modem, routers, computers, printers, etc... in any order you want.

    Wait a minute

    Turn on the modem first and leave a few minutes, he managed by itself

    Turn on the next device that is connected to a modem and leaves turn a good minute

    Keep turn on devices one by one at a time, one minute apart, until the entire network is back

    Recheck the network and report on your results

  • new kindle does not detect my Apple Airport router, what should I do?

    Hi, got a new Kindle for Christmas.  But, off one old, one new can't find my WIFi on its own.  Everything works and set in motion, but the kindle is unable to connect to my router.  Anyone have any ideas?

    If the router has typical apple... name change... short standard SMB network name, without spaces and pure alphanumeric characters... less than 10 characters is the best.

    Password, different cases alphanumeric pure and numbers. 8-20 characters usually much.

    No luck, go to the wireless options and lock the canal at 2.4 ghz, 11, 8, 6, in turn... one of them should work.
