Time Capsule airport 10057 error: computer recognizes airport exists but cannot connect

Hello everyone. I am currently unable to access the NAC on my Time Capsule Airport (not HQ one), as my password seems incorrect. However, this issue of mix, I am unable to connect using AirPort Utility at the Time Capsule airport in order to use a "soft reset". I can't push the button, but after that, it is impossible to actually access the settings from the airport using the utility.

I'm on Windows 8, using the AirPort Utility for Windows 8.

I tried the following:

  • every possible permutation of IPv4/6
  • a_l'_aide_de CTRL + SHIFT + O, and then perform one) I don't have the password and b) if I type in gibberish it gives me another error (-6753)
  • disconnect, reconnect, reboot, etc, etc.

Just to be clear:

  • I know that the WIFI password
  • I know the old password to the NAC
  • I do not know how to change the password of the NAC
  • My shift caps lock is not on

After a soft reset of the password is public... What have you tried?

There is no password on the wireless for 5 minutes during the soft reset.

In any case to fix... doing a factory reset full. No files are lost in the process.

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.

Make sure you use ethernet to connect to the TC, not wireless. It tends to work better that windows wireless Gets a bit NARKY...

If you don't know what that means NARKY... and I don't know what means NAC.

  • time capsule airport cannot be opened because the original item cannot be found

    I just purchased a Time capsule airport and can't install. It flashes orange, and although that Time Machine backs up on it, and I can access the internet, I don't remember upward the back-up because I got the following error message:

    "'Airport Time Capsule' could not open the original item cannot be found".

    The printer is connected to the Capsule by USB works.

    I'm installing via an iMac.

    Help, please!

    Thank you

  • Using Time Capsule airport on 2 devices

    for some reason, I have a PET of brain here and do not understand this.

    My wife has a laptop computer macpro she does his grad school stuff on.   I have an iMac.   I also have the time capsules from the airport.  the woman is set up with time machine, it sends data via wifi to the time capsule. It is very good.  The mine records at the same Time capsule airport wireless.

    ME, I would use one different wifi router other than the airport on another network device I have, however, the question is: is it possible that I can keep the wifi for the operation of the Apple device and connect my computer via ethernet to the device for the back upward only, using the capsule on the imac.

    I think I can, but I don't want to screw up the wireless network.

    You can use both ethernet and wireless at the same time... but it becomes complicated with the gateway router and DNS values.

    Secondary wireless router should use another address LAN IP for the TC, so you can separate the two networks.

    This could lead to further questions about the network although because you must plug a router into the other I presume... unless you are completely isolate the TC from the internet or if you have in fact two internet connections.

    Give me the real details.

    What is the second router and IP is running?

    How is the installation of TC and what IP is running?

    Screenshots that make it easier.

    I did a write up with screenshots here, which will give you the basics.

  • How can I change the name of the ion HD my Time Capsule airport

    My time capsule airport has changed its name to data and now I can't use it. What can I do?

    Not sure why you can't use 'Data' as the name of the disk hard Time Capsule, since it is the default value.

    But, if you want to change the name of 'Data' to something else...

    Open the AirPort on your Mac utility... (Finder > Applications > utilities > AirPort Utility)

    Click on the image of the time Capsule

    Click on edit in the window that appears

    Click the disks at the top of the next window

    Next to Partitions, you will see "Data".

    Click directly on the name of 'Data' and the box will change to allow you to edit the name, just as you can change the name of any other player

    In the example below, I changed the name of the drive 'safeguards '.

    Click Update at the bottom right of the window to save the changes you have made

  • How to see files saved on my Time Capsule airport? All I see is the name of my hardrive.

    I have recently started using Apple's Time Capsule airport and use it for my Time Machine backups. When I used Time machine in the post with an external hard drive, I can go and see all the backups and individual files, if I needed to. However, with my new Time Capsule airport, I don't see the name of my hard drive. Is there a setting someone to reveal all the files and individual backups?

    Click the 'clock' Time machine at the top of the screen of the Mac

    Click on enter Time Machine

    However, if you are asking how to see the files that Time Machine has saved time using the Finder Capsule...

    Click on the Time Capsule icon under the heading Shared in a Finder window

    A disc hard... named 'Data' unless you have changed the name... is displayed on the right

    Double click 'Data' (may asked you the peripheral Time Capsule password when you do this)

    Double-click the sparsebundle bearing the name of your Mac

    A reader named Time Machine backups will appear on the desktop

    Open the drive and go through the levels to find the files you want
