TWC Modem/Router-with Apple Time Capsule extreme

Can someone find me on this configuration?

I'm trying to improve the coverage of the WiFi in my house and I'm trying to do so via an ethernet connection to two Capsules of time separate Apple.  One is an airport Time Capsule 802.11n (3rd generation/Firmware 7.6.4) and the other is a Time Capsule 802.11ac Airport (7.73 firmware).

I have a Time Warner cable wireless modem/router (Arris 860 has TG1672G). The configuration in the network for NAT settings is "RoutedWithNAT". I'm going out this modem/router via a ZyXel AV2000 HomePlug AV2 Powerline Gigabit Pass-Thru 2-port Ethernet Adapter (I have no ethernet strung in this particular room) in the AC of the Apple Time Capsule 802.11.  The configuration for that Time Capsule is Mode/Off/network wireless and network /Router Mode / Off (Bridge Mode).  The other Time Capsule has the same configuration.

That is the question... is the right way to get faster WiFi?  I realize by using the Homeplug may not help my cause, but I have to guess that it is faster to go wireless two correct time Capsules?

The issue I'm having is that it's slow and I can't understand why.

Thank you for the kind words.


I wanted to add a few things to this post...

I tested out the ZyXel ethernet to my MacBook Pro and ran a Speedtest.  He retired.  Very fast.

Here are the screenshots of my two time Capsules config and my modem/router from Time Warner.

In the meantime, here is the speed I get via radio... pretty dismal.

  • Create wireless network with airport Time Capsule

    I replace my ISP provider rented the modem / router with a modem, I bought and I would use my gen current airport Time Capsule to set up the wifi network. I can't find the instructions on how to proceed and AirPort Extreme do not seem to apply.

    I am running OS X Capitan 10.11.3 on an early 2015 MacBook Pro.

    Thank you!


    I can't find the instructions on how to proceed and AirPort Extreme do not seem to apply.

    Hmm.  A time Capsule is an AirPort Extreme with a built-in hard drive, so what works for one should work for the other and vice versa. You might be looking at old operating instructions?

    Since you've decided to add a new modem, Time Capsule will be reset back to the default settings and then set it up again to work with the new modem.  Apple installation "wizard" will guide you in installing the time Capsule, by appointing a wireless network, set up a password, etc, so the process is very easy to name.

    The installation provided with your Time Capsule Guide goes on how to set up the time Capsule.

    After resetting the time Capsule to factory default settings, you would connect an Ethernet cable from the modem into the "O" on the Time Capsule WAN port.

    To get the "Assistant" Setup running, just click the WiFi icon at the top of the screen of the Mac and are looking for the new AirPort base station. Just below that, click directly on the Time Capsule.  The example below shows an AirPort Extreme, but you would see on your screen time Capsule.

    When you click on the Time Capsule, the next screen that is displayed looks like this, except that you will see a picture of a Capsule of time on your screen.

    Simply click next to get the process going and follow the instructions.

    I just got my new 3T Apple Time Capsule and have implemented the new network, but I can't seem to find a way to check if the security settings WPA/WPA2 etc are defined.  How do I do that?

    By default, the settings are WPA2 Personal. There should be no need to change it.

    To view the settings and make changes to them, you need to open the AirPort on your Mac utility.  Are you still using OS X (10.6.3) you specify in your profile?

  • Airport Apple Time Capsule vs Rogers Advanced WiFi Modem Configuration

    Between the use of the advanced WiFi modem from Rogers and airport Time Capsule from Apple - a better/more strong WiFi signal will offer?

    I'm under Apple Airport time Caro as my router now (with Rogers Advanced WiFi modem mode 'bridge').    However - my WiFi connection is weak/inconsistent even after adding 1 Airport Express to extend the network.    My Modem/router are connected with a 2 foot Cat6 my ground floor, with the Airport Express on the floor to extend the reach (via WiFi - not the ethernet connection).

    When I reset my router/modem, get full power - however, after a couple days I get slower speeds.

    Any ideas how to fix?  Users are finding you work better than the other?

    Between the use of the advanced WiFi modem from Rogers and airport Time Capsule from Apple - a better/more strong WiFi signal will offer?

    Turn on the Rogers modem in router mode and launch his wifi... Plug the TC and run it in bridge, but also launch wireless audio... There is absolutely NO reason not to use both... You will often find the 2.4 ghz superior to the airport the Rogers Wireless. Apple has deliberately reduced its speed... If you need set channels wireless manual... for example of Rogers on the TC on Channel 6 and channel 11.

    5 GHz has penetration and poor range, especially when you look at the wireless signal directly above or below any router... It is of course extremely beneficial to use ethernet between the floors... Run the Rogers down and move the TC on the floor... that gives you much better signal allows you to get the most out of two wireless routers.

    Extend (Repeater) wireless using the Express will condemn you slow wireless forever. Repeaters by their nature even halve the speed of the connection... and if you place the Express in a poor signal area... getting worse. Express should be located to midway between the two... no physical distance but the power of the signal... If it gets bad signal, it will give terrible results since its own signal will be strong for customers.

    Test it... give up the Express... run ethernet to the top of the stairs and just try it with the TC to the right place.

  • Anyone having problems with the modem from Cox and Time Capsule


    Lately my internet falls down every day or every two days with Cox. I have reset the modem, the time capsule, the routers extreme apple, etc. shut down and restart my whole network. I called Cox every two days to refresh the modem.

    I heard that I may need to reconfigure my Time Capsule (acts as a router) to avoid this problem.

    No one knows what to do here?

    Thank you

    Please, try the following:

    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 on the Internet tab at the top of the next window

    Click the Internet Options button at the bottom of the window

    Make sure that the IPv6 configuration is set to Local link only

    Click on save, if you make changes, then click Update at the bottom right of the window

    When Cox fully implements IPv6 (they are not), you may be able to return to the automatic configuration.

  • Apple Time Capsule "unexpected error".

    I did have slow speeds on my network lately and checked with Comcast to see if it was their end. They assured me that it wasn't, so I decided to do a reset on my router from Apple and see if that helped. I did a full factory reset with plans to start over. Now however I am not able to configure my Airport.

    I tried on my iPhone, iPad and Mac. All devices are completely up-to-date. IPad and iPhone, I can only find the configuration in the menu wifi, airport did not appear to me in the iOS version of airport road. On Mac, I find the time Capsule Airport Airport utility (under "other Wifi devices") and can scroll through the complete Assembly (name, password, etc.), but when it happens at the end it begins "Looking for"(insert network name)"" and times out after 4 minutes with "unexpected error. Please Try Again ".

    The strange thing is before I try to configure the router I can see in my WiFi menu and I am able to use the internet very well, but it is not guaranteed and not configured.

    I have tried what seems like all combinations of the implementation without success. Time Capsule airport had a recent firmware update probably two months ago. Not sure if this affects what it is.

    Search for answers until I try to buy a new router. But it doesn't seem like the Time Capsule is broken, just something odd current. I already used this same configuration for more than 9 months with little or no question. I feel like I tried something! Would like answers. He likes guys.

    Data sheet:

    Time Capsule 1 TB Model #A1355

    Modem: ARRIS DOCSIS 3.0 SB6141 SURFboard

    MacBook Pro with El Capitan

    iPad 2 Air with iOS10

    iPhone 6 s with last iOS9

    Example of installation.

    When everything has failed, you can configure the Capsule manually without having to use configuration of 'sorcerer' Apple...... but the process can be a bit complicated.

    Need to connect your MacBook Pro to the time Capsule using an Ethernet cable for installation. If your MacBook Pro doesn't have an Ethernet port, you will need to use an adapter Thunderbolt to Ethernet... one point really handy to have around, if you have not already. More info here:

    Maid in Gigabit Ethernet Adapter - Apple

    Please advise on the possibility of trying to use Ethernet for configuration... and whether or not you are able to use this option.  No guarantee that it will work for you, but it has worked for me several times during the normal installation translates into repeated errors.

  • Invisible router 'behind' the time Capsule

    What IP address is your computer?

    Your computer MUST be the IP address 192.168.1.x (x is a number between 2-254)

    Please open your airport utility... Click on the TC so that it displays the summary and page after the screenshot of it.

    What model is your TC?

    (I can get this info from the screenshot if you post at least for what I need).

    It seems that some questions may arise.

    Could also contribute to a screenshot of the IP configuration on the computer.

    You enabled IPv6 link-local only?

    A bridge TC may have problems of routing on the WAN port when filled... Since your TC is filled please connect the modem to the LAN of TC port instead of the WAN port... Restart both routers + computer and tell me if this solves the problem.

  • New modem cannot connect to Time Capsule

    Xfinity gave me a new gateway wireless modem/router a few weeks ago.  I hung it just as the former with a cable to the Capsule of time (not wireless).  Since then, my MacBook Pro (OS X Yosemite 10.10.5) can not find the TC and said "backup drive is not available."  Meanwhile, the TC has a flashing orange light.  I rebooted everything more than once.  The time on my Mac says Machine I have not backed up since 15 February, but when I go into "Time Machine", it looks like there were multiple regular backups since then (I'm skeptical).  User support Comcast tinkered around for an hour and he couldn't understand.  Another suit tech support tried for another hour and could not make any progress.  How can I make it work again?

    You MUST reset the TC factory and start over... This happens whenever you make a network change and there is no change in larger network than what you were doing... to replace the router.

    Here are the instructions to get going again. It is a comprehensive so that your needs can be met with just a couple of them.

    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.

    The installer the TC.

    And then redo the configuration of the computer with the Mavericks - Yosemite - ElCapo. (MYELCAP)

    1. the use of very short names... NO APPLE RECOMMENDED names. Without the space and pure alphanumeric characters.

    for example TCgen5 for the base station and the name of the TCwifi wireless.

    If the problem is using wireless TC24ghz and TC5ghz with fixed channels as it also seems to help stop the nonsense. But it can be tried in the second round. IE, plan on a first and second series of changes to fix this... If all goes well... I note other steps can you tour2.

    2. use all passwords also consistent with 1. but maybe a little longer. IE 8 and 20 characters of mixed cases and numbers... no alphanumeric non-caracteres.

    3. If the TC is router, you can ignore this point. It is only a problem when the TC is bridged.

    If ensure that the TC is always the same IP address... you will need to do this on the main router using a dhcp reservation... or a bit more complex setup by using the static IP address in the TC. But it's important for deriving from intellectual property in all directions when MYELCAP do not remember his name for 5 min after a reboot done for poor network management.

    4. check that your share on the computer name does not change... Make sure that it is also in line with the above... short without space and pure alphanumeric... but this change will mess up your TM backup... so be prepared to make a new, full backup. Sorry... keep this one for the second round, if you want to avoid a new backup.

    5 attach the TC disc into the computer manually.

    In Finder, go, connect to the server in the main menu,

    Type in SMB:// (or whatever ip of TC is that you made static. It's a default router and I encourage people to stick with it unless you know what you're doing).

    You can use the name... SMB://TCgen5.local where you replace TCgen5 with your name of TC... local is the default domain of the TC and does not change.

    However the names are not so easy as... the IP address nor reliable. They are not at least not in Yosemite. The field can also be a problem if you are not clogged or wireless directly to the Treasury Board.

    6. ensure that IPv6 is set to link-local only in the computer. For example wireless open network, wireless and Advanced preferences / TCP/IP... and the difficulty of IPv6. link-local only. Do the same for the ethernet if you use it.

    It is a lot more jiggery pokery, you can try, but the above is a good start... If you still find not reliable... don't be surprised.

    You may need to do more work on the computer itself. for example, to reset the NVRAM/PRAM/SMC... helped some people. A clean installation of the operating system is also useful if you update installed.

    Let us know how you go.

    The xfinity is a modem router then the TC will be in bridge.

    If you continue to have problems, I need a few screenshots of the configuration... that should correspond to what I posted.

  • BT SmartHub with airport Time Capsule

    I have been using my Airport Extreme (Time Capsule), connected to an infinite number of BT Modem for quite awhile this provision of my wireless network and a large drive to transfer data between iMac and MacBook pro (etc) (I poured the Bt HomeHub 3 in favor of the Airport Extreme). Unfortunately I had to also provide a down WiFi Repeater for total WiFi coverage throughout the House. I just got a new SmartHub BT who now gives me a WiFi coverage at exceptional speeds throughout the House (it's been so far with 2 Infinity Modem).

    The problem I have now is that I can't effectively use Time Capsule as my NAS (or at least is what seems to be the case). If I leave on time capsule, its wireless network is visible as before, but of course I can't use it as I have the wireless network BT providing WiFi Internet connectivity. So how to connect the clip time to my 'new' network so that it is visible both the iMac and the MacBook only as a drive.

    You have a few choices, both methods require that the Time Capsule (TC) keep in touch with the new HomeHub BT by Ethernet:

    1. Reconfigure the TC as a bridge and disable its wireless radios.
    2. Reconfigure the TC as a bridge and then configure the HomeHub and TC in a mobile network. It would be more logical if you need to expand the network of the HomeHub wireless.
  • Extend the reach of the WiFi with airport Time Capsule and Airport Express

    I want to extend the range of my WiFi network running on a Time Capsule with an Airport Extreme airport. The Internet, ADSL, signal goes from the cable box in a closet and has two Ethernet cables connecting the box. I installed a simple Ethernet switch and ran inside, with both Internet cables Ethernet Miss and in two rooms in my apartment. I created the Capsule of time like the WiFi router, then the Express in the other room in Bridge Mode to extend the range of the WiFi network and enable AirPlay. This configuration works well for a while, but after a certain time has problems. The Express seems to go back to the creation of the WiFi network on its own and I saw the problem of the conflict addreses DCHP.

    What seemed to work correctly using the Express as the "pivot" and I fell straight Internet on it and an Ethernet cable to connect the Time Capsule in Bridge Mode. It's far from ideal for me, however, because I like the Express to be in another room to extend the range of the WiFi network in this part of my apartment and be able to use it for AirPlay.

    Help, please.

    If you could let us know what operating system you use on your Mac or PC, we'll give you a configuration suggested for the AirPort Express, which will allow the Express and the Time Capsule to connect to the Ethernet switch and perform correctly.

    We assume that the switch and the wiring will function properly in your current configuration, as well as the time Capsule, is that correct?

  • Switch to Uverse Xfinity cable modem. Now comes Time Capsule or wi fi to work.

    I have had Uverse for several years and today passed to Xfinity. I have a new Capsule 2 TB and an Airport Extreme, used as a range extender (bought in November 2014) and an old Time Capsule (bought in 2012) that I use as a different range extender and a Time Capsule for 2 other iMacs. Now that I have this modem Arris SB6183 cable I can't Wi - Fi to work. After several attempts with the Arrius customer support that I am at a loss. After Arrius support finally got the iMac having internet by bypassing the TC and linking directly from modem to the iMac, that I tried up again the TC wifi network but can do seem to succeed. I pressed the reset button on the TC for 15 seconds, and now I think that I lost all my original network set up. I have to start from scratch and create a new network? Can someone guide me to get this set up? Thank you in advance.

    I noticed the list of devices on here... in fact we have now 3 iMac and macbook air. I'm working on the iMac 2011 until I get the wifi working again.

    I have to start from scratch and create a new network?

    Yes, you will need to reset and rerun the installation of TC.  This is a requirement whenever you change the modem, like you did with the new box of Arius.

    Good luck and come back here if you need further assistance.
