Time capsule airport unplug my Airport Express and internet


I just brought my Airport Time Capsule of the work. I have the joint via an Ethernet cable to my extreme, both are in my basement. Upstairs, I have a set Express in place to expand the wireless. The extreme and Express worked for many years now.

Once the time Capsule has been recognized in the public services of the airport, he made an update of the firmware.

After that, I edited the settings for the time Capsule to my home network and set it to "develop wireless."

Extreme, Express and Time Capsule all had them green to light up in public services - so I tried to run a Time Machine backup, and things went sour.

The cable modem the extreme is connected to started to abandon the connection every 30-45 seconds and the Express light went red and there is no longer recognized, so I clicked "forget" to remove it. Time Machine could not locate the time Capsule.

So I unplugged the Time Capsule, all rebooted and now my extreme and Express up and running again.

What waste?

Thank you



After that, I edited the settings for the time Capsule to my home network and set it to "develop wireless."

I think you probably mean "extend a wireless network".

This is the bad setting... because it would be used only if the time Capsule connected to your network using Wireless.  You specify the Time Capsule connects using Ethernet.

Here is what is happening now... the time Capsule waiting for a wireless connection, but he gets an Ethernet connection.  This translates into a huge feedback loop that effectively blocks your network.

The correct setting for the time Capsule would be "create a wireless network"using the same exact wireless network name, security and password as other Apple routers. " Finally, make sure that the time Capsule is set to run in Bridge Mode before you click Update to save the new settings.

  • Best config Time Capsule - Airport Express

    Hi all.

    My home network at present are as follows:

    -My ISP, with a disabled Wi - Fi router;

    -Mac and PC connected via ethernet cables using the router's LAN ports.

    -Airport Express (WAN port) connected by ethernet to a LAN port of the router that gives Wi - fi in the House: note that the router and AirPort Express are in different rooms (router: bedroom, AirPort Express: living room)

    I want to add a time Capsule to my network, but I want to put in the living room, where the Express is at the moment. I don't have a single cable ethernet connecting the bedroom to the living room because there is not enough space in the walls of two sons.

    What I would do is:

    -Time capsule in the living room, connected via an ethernet cable to the router, generating the signal Wi - Fi;

    -AirPort Express connected by ethernet to a LAN port of the router, which extends signal Wi - Fi in the bedroom.

    This configuration can work? And how? Should I use the same SSID?

    If this is not possible, my only option is to connect the Time Capsule via ethernet to the router and then connect the WAN port on the Express to a port of time Capsule, right? Would not be my best installation in the House, but if it's the only one that works, I'll go with it. If I didn't have the problem of the single cable connecting the two rooms, everything would be super easy. Extending Wi - Fi wireless is not in my case, having this second wired option.

    Any other suggestion is appreciated!

    This configuration can work? And how? Should I use the same SSID?

    Of course, it works very well. Download Time Capsule set up and running using Apple "Installation Wizard", and then reset the Express back to the settings by default and set up using Configuration Apple "Assistant" as well.

    The wizard will affect automatically the same SSID and password to the AirPort Express, which uses the Capsule, so by default, you will have what is called a "mobile network". For the configuration, I would recommend that you temporarily connect the Express to the time Capsule using a short Ethernet cable to spare before you run the installer... no matter how long will do.  Connect from a port LAN <>- on the Time Capsule to the "O" in L'Express WAN port. Once the Express is set up, you can move it to the location of the router to establish Ethernet connection here.

    If for any reason, you want the AirPort Express to use a different SSID as the time Capsule, you can use AirPort Utility to go back and change the SSID (and the password as well if you want) on the AirPort Express Terminal.

  • Time capsule: no backup, device not found but internet work

    After my vacation my Time Machine's backups. The Internet works, but the backup utility cannot find the device more. The last backup is a few days before my holiday a month ago.

    In the Time Machine - page select disk (config) TC logo is there, but the only option is to 'remove' the current disk/copy.

    I think I have solved the problem in a strange way:

    -J' watched the disc of airport in the Finder; He had to connect to the TC unit (password information automatically), and content (two sparsebundles) was now visible.

    And after that, at the same time the backup started. It will take 7 hours to complete the backup. It seems that it is regarded as an initial backup then.

    Furthermore, the disc name is passed automatically Time Capsule etc. airport to disk .

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to do what you want... given that the function of "extend a wireless network" Apple will not accept to be extended once the network is not two.

    The other question that you probably, it is that unless your 'main' router is also another router from Apple, the Express is not really 'extension' of the network at all, despite what you think.  More likely, the Express is "membership" in the network. It can be used to connect a USB printer remote in this environment or for use with AirPlay... but the Express doesn't "spread" or "repeat" when he joined the network.

    If you want to check if the Express is really extend the network, and you have a Mac laptop... after back and provide you with a few steps.

    But even if the Express could be the extension of the network... Time Capsule will have to connect to the network using a permanent, wired cables Ethernet... ideally to your main router, but it might work OK if you connect to the Express.

  • Help with Airport Express and Configuration capabilities

    I have a new Airport Express which is set to expand the network wireless (created by Time capsule).  Is it possible to also provide a wired connection to another device in this mode?  If so, how do I need to change the settings? The other device is a hub of lighting (not wireless) which must have an Internet connection to allow remote control of lights.  It is currently connected to the CT but its location does not cover a part of the House, the new AE is the perfect place.

    Is it possible to also provide a wired connection to another device in this mode?


    If so, how do I need to change the settings?

    Some settings need to be changed. By default, both the "O" WAN port and port LAN <>- both act as LAN ports. Choose one or both to an active Ethernet connection.

    The other device is a hub of lighting (not wireless) which must have an Internet connection to allow remote control of lights.

    Turning off the hub of lighting, make the Ethernet connection to the AirPort Express and the hub of power upward. You should be in business.

  • 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:

  • 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 '.

  • 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.

  • 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?

    If you want to see the files Time Machine has saved on your Mac...

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

    Click on enter Time Machine

    For more information about Time Machine, see this Apple support document: use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac - Apple supported

    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

  • 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.
