the power light comes on is when I power up my Airport Extreme, Time Capsule.

the power light lights not is more when I place my Airport Extreme, Time Capsule of power, but I hear whirring noises.  I tried to reset the unit but get the same answer


Sorry, but from your description, it is possible that the power supply to your Time Capsule is defective.

What exact model of the time Capsule did you? If it is new, you can get it replaced by Apple, especially if you bought it with another Apple product.

  • What he average when the green light comes on briefly when it is plugged and them goes out?

    I just bought the webcam connected and the Green led lights up and then goes away.

    Hi, Lord of the Manor,

    EDIT: Seen the following in response, I guess I should have asked, works the webcam otherwise OK?  Is that the only issue that light?  If so, then I would argue that it doesn't really mean anything and it would not be concerned about it.  I assumed, and the rest of this guess, the webcam is not working and it is one of the symptoms.

    What is the manufacturer, the brand and model of the webcam?  How did you install it or did you just plug it and expect it to work automatically (maybe it's a plug-and-play USB)?

    Are you sure that the webcam is compatible with your version of Vista?  Look at:

    Make sure that the appropriate software/firmware or drivers are installed for the webcam.  Go to the Device Manager by going to start / find and type Device Manager and enter and then double-click on the program icon that appears.  Check each device to a red x, yellow! or white?  Search for one or more connected to the webcam and confirm that they are operable and functioning properly.  These identify devices with problems probably (drivers, but also of conflict or something else).  Click on each for more details and troubleshooting tips.  If you need to get drivers (and you should get those for the webcam to all least, even if Device Manager indicates that they work - they can help way beyond simply solve this problem), let the computer dealer or the manufacturer of the device (NOT of Microsoft Updates).  Follow these steps to get the drivers:  Once you have the drivers, you can install them via the Manager device as follows:  If there is any software or firmware as well (from the website), make sure that you install that as well in the order defined by the instructions (sometimes the order of the questions includinding if or not it is done while the device is plugged in or not).  The site may also include installation guides and/or the user manuals that can explain the purpose of the light and what it means when it is on or off and how to turn it on if it should be on to operate.  It is very difficult to help without details on the webcam as each works differently.  Actually, I don't even know if that's a mouthful in by USB to firewire or else however.

    I think it is unlikely that it came with no software, firmware, or drivers of any kind (mine did).  After plug in and do all the installations are required, go to start / Control Panel and see if there is a new icon for the Webcam and if so, click on it and try to configure it to work with your system by following the instructions.  If not, then click on start / all programs and check if there are no new software installed that associated with the webcam and if so, click it and follow the instructions to set up.

    I hope this helps.  If not, post back with detailed information (enough so that we can find the manufacturer and the specific webcam online) on the webcam and we will try to help you further in the establishment knowing that additional information.

    Good luck!

  • Apple Extreme, Time Capsule and Express on the same system, what is the best way to set it up so that all devices smoothly from one end of the House to another?

    Apple Extreme, Time Capsule and Express on the same system, what is the best way to set it up so that all devices smoothly from one end of the House to another?

    I'm going to assume that you plan to have wireless devices.

    Let's say that the Capsule is your "main" router  If this is the case, then it must be located in the House, so that the distance between the time Capsule is the same for the outside walls of the House.

    Then, on the 'left' side of the House, looking for an airport to midway between the Capsule and time of the outer wall of the House. Do the same thing the 'right' side of the House.

    In other words, each of the two airports that "extend" the wireless signal are located at equal distance from the Capsule of time... but they are in opposite ends of the House.

    If you intend to interconnect all the airports and Time Capsule using a permanent, Ethernet wired... which by far is the 'best' way to put in place a network in terms of performance and reliability... then you can locate one of the devices anywhere you want.

  • To transfer the old backups Time Machine from a hard disk external to the airport in Time Capsule

    Is it possible to transfer the old Time Machine backups from my external hard drive to Time Capsule airport?

    Having done this in the past, I can say that it is possilble... but is not anywhere near the amount of time and effort it will take to do this.

    Even when I was successful, Time Machine has started a new backup of the Mac... it has not added on the old existing backups, so I lost a good part of the backup on the Time Capsule space.

    This will be easier if you keep just on the hard drive for a few months... in case you need to go back and pick up a file... While the time Capsule built a new story backups tons.  After 3 to 6 months, you will not need the old backups, and you can erase the disc and use it as a spare part.

    If you want to try it anyway... see this article:

  • C4580 - error when setting up connect through WiFi w / Time Capsule

    I used my C4580 to print and scann with wireless in the past, a Netgear WiFi router with a DLink WiFi router.  I recently started using a Time Capsule from Apple as my WiFi router.  I have two active groups, so I have a 2.4 GHz signal and a 5 GHz signal available for my wireless products to connect to.  All the other products I use (a MacBook Pro running OS X Lion, an iMac running OS X Lion, a CPU HP running Windows XP, a CPU Dell running Windows 7, a Fujitsu laptop running Windows Vista, Apple TV, an iPhone, and an HTC Evo a TiVo set - top box) are able to connect to one or the other of these signals of network without problem.

    Here's what's happening with the C4580:

    1. I plug my C4580 on my MacBook Pro via USB.

    2. I open the HP installation wizard.

    3. in the first part of the "Setup" section, I select my "Photosmart C4500 series", which shows as connected via 'USB '.

    4. in the second part of the topic "Setup", I check the box "configure yoru device to a wireless network.

    5. in the third part of the "Setup" section, my 5 GHz network is not displayed.  My 2.4 GHz network appears, by dint of complete signal, showing the encryption 'WPA_PSK' and 'Infrastructure' mode  I select this option.

    6. After about two minutes, during which the Setup Wizard probably tries to connect the C4580 to the WiFi network, I get the following error message: "* device not connected * to configure the network settings for the selected device, please temporarily connect it via the USB port.  The device can be disconnected from the USB once the network settings are transferred. »

    Note: Throughout this process, my C4500 WAS connected to my MacBook Pro via USB.

    Question: What other steps should I take to solve this problem?

    Thanks for your time.

    First time that I posted on a forum techy, bt I get a lot of help from them, then it's time to spread the love.

    In any case, I was struck by our similar problems were, we have exactly the same set up and the same current. I've been hitting my head against a brick wall for a whole afternoon. Your temporary solution lead me to a very simple implementation and a more permanent solution.

    Your normal home network have an apostrophe or special characters, such as YourName Wi - Fi network?

    I had two networks put in place (already had a network of comments) called W - Fi Latitude and comments Latitude travel network travel network.

    On your advice I tried to use my Gust netowrk. Oddly, when he showed up on the list, it lacked the apostrophe (the other network was not missing the apostrophe). When I tried to click on it, it said that there was not. I tried to type the name in its entirety in the box 'Other networks' and I was able to connect, but the software insisted that even if the printer is now connected, the MacBook was not (even though it was clearly).

    The anomaly has led me to believe that the HP Softare along with apostrophes, I went to the airport and renamed the two networks with apostrophes. I gave the private network a go, and voila, everything went well.

    It is a lesson in how to make a long story short. Basically, to remove the apostrophes in your network name in the airport and then try again.

  • Airport Express, Time Capsule and Airport Express using the same network

    Just moved into a new House and this is what I install.  I have 7 Port wired into the House.

    Closet of network in the Garage:

    • Cable modem
    • Airport Express
    • netgear switch 8 ports
    • It works pretty well.  All my wired connections work fine.  Wireless is quite good but cove not enough of space in my house.

    Think about adding my airport express capsule of time in my office - plugged into one of the hard wired connections.  Who works AND let me wish the WIFI?

    Thank you!

    Yes fine, assuming that first test you the Ethernet port in the office by connecting a computer (with WIFI disabled on the computer) using a spare Ethernet cable runs to ensure that the computer can get a good connection in this way.

    Put the airport Time Capsule to create a wireless network that uses the exact same wireless network name and password in your existing network. Apple installation "Wizard" automatically configure airport Time Capsule in the correct setting of the Bridge Mode for the device.

  • Is it possible to use express Airport and Time Capsule both as two Wifi-repeaters at the same time?


    I have a time Capsule from the airport. I use it for my back ups and he repeats my wifi in the House (bottom).

    Now I need a Repeater wifi upstairs. I think to buy Airport Express. I will connect the Airport express with a Lan connection on the floor. And then I would also have wifi on the floor.

    But is it possible to use the time Capsule Airport express airport and at the same time: two repeaters-wifi?

    1. I have a Fritz! Box router / wifi (we called wifi Fritz! box)

    2. I have a time Capsule airport / wifi Repeater (we called the turtle wifi)

    3 and now I want Airport express on the floor for the wifi upstairs (another name for this wifi?)

    Is this possible?

    Before I had used TP-link (in socket), but it works for a few months.

    Thank you for your help and advice.

    2. I have a time Capsule airport / wifi Repeater (we called the turtle wifi)

    I think that your terminology wrong... the TC cannot work as a Repeater in the Frtiz.

    I think that you have done is connect via ethernet and run it as wireless... or WAP Access Point. It is perfectly great way to do it.

    3 and now I want Airport express on the floor for the wifi upstairs (another name for this wifi?)

    This is connected by ethernet, then it will work fine... you can call it Expresswifi

    You are certainly going to clutter the wireless channels, you could so be interesting rather than auto setting fastenings.

    2.4 ghz has been set to 1, TC 6 and 11 Express then Frtiz.

    5 GHz is less of a problem... auto should be fine, because the beach is mediocre.

  • Properties view displays all the settins, theme shows right and when I leave my computer on some time it crashes. How can I fix it with the windows CD? Compatibility Wizard says bad ini file__

    When I try to change the background, display shows theme instead, properties and when I leave my computer on at a certain time, it freezes. What can I do to fix this? How can I use windows CD to repair, when I put the CD and you press the 'r' key, nothing happens, please help?

    The lack of tabs in display properties usually indicates a malware infection. First run the scans and do not skip the preparatory work. If the machine stands (not frozen) in Safe Mode (where you'll be scanning), it is also a good indication of infection. Regarding the CD does not start, you probably don't have the computer configured to boot from the optical drive. But no matter, because enter the Recovery Console (which is what happens when you press 'R' from the XP installation disk) won't be useful in your situation anyway.

  • The utility Airport and Time Capsule, not appear...

    Hello all! I have an old TC (not sure how old but less than 3 years) which appears in Airport utility on my iPhone but not on my Mac. I have my TC in Bridge mode.

    During the night, we lost our internet connection so this morning, I restarted my modem/router to Comcast. He looked like my TC starts fine but when I open the Airport utility on my Mac it isn't here, but if I open Airport utility on my iPhone 6 is here. I wonder why it appears on one and not the other...

    Thank you for your valuable information and knowledge! Judy

    You only need a device with AirPort Utility installed to be able to administer all the airport on your network routers... and, as you have found... the software on the iOS version of the utility is better than the software on a Mac.

    Thus, an option would be to use Airport utility on the iPad and not to use it on the Mac.

    If you want to keep the AirPort Utility to work on your Mac, there are some settings to check and possibly change that could help with the "airports endangered" issue, who is with us for a few years.  No guarantee that this will help, but it won't hurt either. If you have 10-15 minutes free to work on your Mac, and we'll see what we can do.

  • Satellite A200 - loses the battery, switch off the power

    I have a relatively old Satellite A200, yet almost all inside is new except the battery. The battery has a very short life, but that's because its old. Recently the computer started to suddenly lose the battery, so the charge light stays on, the battery light turns off and the battery icon said "plugged in, not charging." However, the computer still work on battery power. If I see it at the time, then by removing and replacing the charger repeatedly, I can start it load again, but if I am not it switches off without warning. Since the battery life is now less than a minute which often.

    I don't think that the problem is with the charger because it always shows the charger is plugged in, and when the computer is off the battery light is always on when it is plugged. I had a problem with the power connector, but if the motherboard was recently replaced so I don't think that's it either.

    If someone could help it would save me a lot of frustration, thank you.


    At first, I must say that you should not be frustrated. Problems with consumer products are normal, and each of us has problems with laptops, televisions or other electronic product.

    Let's see what you can do about it.
    Your description is OK, but what I want to know is follow:
    When you remove the battery can work on your laptop with no problems (start work, cut)?

    I also think that the battery is too old and I presume it's troublemaker in the history. It is not easy to explain what behavior flashing if you have a defective hardware or old coin inside.

    Maybe, you need to buy the replacement of the battery and check the features for laptop and the battery, just to see if everything will be OK again. If you will be faced with the same problem again then we can discuss what may be the problem.
    In my opinion only a reason for this could be electronic power supply.
