Hardware :: Can't Connect USB Printer Through Time Capsule

Dec 31, 2010

Searched and couldn't find a solution, so here's my problem. I've got a network setup trough a 1TB Time Capsule, ~18 months old. 2 MB's and one MBP on the network, and also a Samsung CLP-315W color laser printer (wireless connection, not USB). Everything has always worked well. I just bought a Canon CP800 compact photo printer for my wife and would like to connect it through the TC's USB port, for wireless iPhoto printing from her MB.

The printer shows it's connected to the TC, according to its built-in LCD screen, and the printer shows up in any of the laptop printer setup utility screens. The latest Canon driver has been installed, and the printer works properly as long as it's hardwired to any of the laptop USB ports, but not through the TC connection. Here's the error screen which appears when trying to complete the "add printer" process through the TC's USB port.

Hardware :: Connect To Time Capsule While Connecting To Wifi Network At Same Time?

Sep 22, 2009

I recently purchased a Time Capsule to use as a wireless hard drive. I connect to the internet both through wifi and ethernet to a educational network that does not allow extra routers, etc, to be added to the network, therefore I can not use the time capsule for this wifi.

I therefore want to connect to my early 2009 MBP17unibody to both the academic internet network for http/pop3/ftp/etc while simultaneously connecting to external hard drive to store data/itunes-library/etc.

I expect this has been asked before but I can't find any threads where it has. If anyone knows it would be highly helpful. I'd prefer to connect to both wirelessly but I could potentially put up with connecting to either or both with ethernet.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Sitting Next To Printer?

Aug 29, 2009

I was just wondering if this is potentially dangerous: I have my Time Capsule on a shelving unit right next to my printer. Could the vibrations from the printer disrupt the hard drive in the Time Capsule? The shelving unit is simply wire, so it if the printer is causing a vibration/shaking, the Time Capsule would feel it. Would something like this damage a hard drive, or is it okay?

OS X :: HP F380 Usb Printer Not Working Through Time Capsule?

Mar 24, 2010

I have tried for hours trying to get my hp f380 working through time capsule wirelessly but can't get it to work. Read lots of info but it is still not working. It works when it is connected directly to my macbook pro but not when usb is put into time capsule. I tried setting it up through network settings, printer utility etc but to no prevail. The time capsule acts as a bridge and is connected through ethernet to another router. If I go to Print and Fax in Preferences under settings and I want to add the printer with bonjour all works but it does not display a driver for the particular printer I have, although countless others are listed.

Hardware :: Time Capsule And Ethernet Printer Functionality

Mar 27, 2009

I have a first generation Time Capsule. I want to by a laser all-in-one printer and would like to be able to print wirelessly (wireless scanning would be nice too, but I'm not so bothered about that). I'm thinking of buying a Brother MFC-7840W and have a few questions:

1. This all-in-one is wireless (b/g), so if I set it up as a wireless printer using the printer's wireless feature, would it have the effect of slowing down my N speed connection for Time Capsule? I plan on leaving the printer on all the time so it's ready to print if I need it (I assume it will go into standby mode when not in use) - I don't mind it slowing the network speed just while I print, but wouldn't want it to slow my connection down permanently.

2. If option 1 slows things down, how about if I connect the printer via ethernet. Would that work easily for printing? Would I be able to scan too? In other words, is plugging in an ethernet printer on a TC the same in terms of functionality as a direct ethernet connection between my MacBook and the printer?

Hardware :: Epson Photo Printer Does Not Print Via Time Capsule?

Apr 25, 2009

I have MacBook OsX 10.5.6. Had a direct printer connection but recently decided to hook up my Epson R1800 stylus photo printer through TC. I removed the old default printer and added it through System Preferences-> Print and Fax. It is recognized as a Time Capsule Printer, bonjour kind.

But when I press print i get for 2 seconds window saying that page is printing but printer queue is empty and nothing happens. It feels almost as if printer is not hooked up. I can not locate this printer on Epson Utility (separate software) either. Does anyone have or had in the past similar problem?

OS X :: Time Capsule Won't Allow Two Computers To Connect?

Feb 3, 2009

I have a time capsule and a MacBook Air for the last number of months. Both had been working perfectly and even when my neighbour came over with his MacBook, we could quite easily network between the two computers and connect the two to the internet via the time capsule... Furthermore my MacBook air backed up regularly to the time capsule using time machine without a problem.

Problem. I got a new iMac and uploaded an imprint of my MacBook account and data onto it from the time capsule. I now cannot connect the two computers to the time capsule simultaneously, cannot network between them or cannot have both connected to the internet at the same time.. Furthermore, neither will back up to the time capsule using time machine. Very frustrating, because I know that it is something very simple causing this, but I am new enough to Mac and cannot resolve.

OS X :: Unable To Connect To Time Capsule On Desktop

Aug 29, 2008

I'm working on a Tiger OS and I cannot connect to my time capsule. I followed instructions in the manual, but I simply do not see Time Capsule on my desktop, and there is very little info in the manual. I am working off of ethernet, not airport, and would prefer to used ethernet for the moment. I have it connected via LAN port to my macbook pro. There's only one ethernet port on my computer. Does anyone have any advice? I know about about Macs, but dont have much experience with network specs.

Hardware :: How To Connect PS3 To Time Capsule Wireless

Sep 28, 2009

Basically I have a PS3 (silm, if that matters), and a Time Capsule connected to my router via ethernet , and Im using the TC as the network, called "PamaJama". Basically it connects fine when I connect via ethernet, but when I try to use it wirelessly, "PamaJama" doesent show up. And When I go to put it in manually, it doesnt ask for a name... I know the password is a WPA2 Personal, and that doesent come up as a catagorie either. If I where to change the password to a WEP, would it show up? If yes, how do i do that? and if no, do you know what I have to do to get it to connect wirelesly? I can always just leave it connected via ethernet but I would love for it to connect wirelessly so i could play it up in my room.

OS X :: How To Connect With IMac Wireless Range And New Time Capsule

Oct 7, 2009

I have a 2006 Intel iMac (Running 10.6.1)that is not seeing my wireless routers (D-Link 628 and Time Capsule Dual-channel). The D-Link is downstairs. It is not in the best place, but at my only option. My Macbook Pro sees the D-link fine on the same desk as the iMac. I replaced the D-Link with the Time Capsule and the iMac doesn't even see that. If I bring it close (completely underneath the desk) to the iMac it will see both routers. The weird part is before a hard drive crash and replacement it worked fine (I know, I know something is amiss from the replacement).

Hardware :: Won't Work To Connect / Using Time Capsule (Wifi)

Nov 17, 2009

When I live at my brother's house, I connect to my brother's network which gives me wireless internet. Is it possible for my TC to, instead of being plugged in directly to his router with an ethernet cord, pick up his network's wireless internet and output it on it's own network?

In case that question makes no sense, what I want to do is connect to my TC's network (so I have access to the hard drive) but still get my brother's internet connection.

OS X :: Connect Time Capsule With Linksys Router On Network?

Aug 17, 2010

Our company is currently running an Apple Time Capsule that has ~40 users wirelessly connecting to it. Now we recently opened up a new office space that will potentially have more than 50 users that need to connect to our network.

Seeing this we then purchased a Linksys WRT610N wireless router so that we can facilitate more than 50 wireless users. My question therefore is: how do we set this up so that the Linksys router connects to the TC so that we will subsequently be connected to the Internet as well as our network - no matter what SSID (TC or Linksys) we're on. I've been bearing about bridge modes and WAN ports but this is new to us so a brief explanation/procedure would be appreciated.

Keep in mind that we would like to keep the TC as our main router with the Linksys connected to that as well as increase the TC limit of the 50-user connectivity limit.

Hardware :: PC Cannot Connect To Time Capsule Driver To Perform Backup

Aug 25, 2009

My Time Capsule and PC (Windows XP) communicate well wirelessly. I am able to access the internet and use AirPort Utility to change settings on the Time Capsule if needed.

However, I have NOT been able to perform a backup on my PC yet. I am not able to access the Driver and don't really know what to do to fix it.

Under the "Network Drivers" section, the PC says that it is a "Disconnected Network Drive", and when I try to open it up, it says "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password".

Reading other threads, I've already checked and verified that the PC and the T.Capsule are using the same Workgroup name. I am not sure that I have Bonjour loaded on my PC. Is it necessary?

PowerPC :: Unable To Connect Imac G4 And Time Capsule Wireless

Sep 23, 2009

I have a dual band time capsule working wirelessly with 3 macs all intel (24 iMac, mbp 13, mb 13) with no issues. I was trying to connect a 17" flat panel G4 to the same wireless network on the time capsule and it fails to see the network.

When I type in the network name and password (WPA) it comes back with "encryption method not supported by the wireless network". Although all the others macs are working on this same network using the same encryption, the old iMac refuses to play nice. Is there something else I've overlooked?

Hardware :: Time Capsule And Vista Can Connect To The WIFI Network

Just replaced a 500 gb time capsule with a new dual band 1 tb time capsule (first one died). My iMac, ipods, ps3 and wii all can connect to the network and work great. My wife's HP laptop, which worked fine 3 days ago, isn't connecting well. It picks up the "excellent" signal to connect to the local network made by the time capsule, but can not connect to the bigger internet. In other words, no browsing, email...etc. the signal is "excellent, and all other devices in the house can "see" and use the internet

Hardware :: Time Capsule Setup To Connect To Wireless Access Point?

Jan 23, 2009

I'm currently staying in university residence where our internet access is all through wireless access point through the building; in this environment, is it possible to setup a time capsule such that it connects wirelessly to the nearest access point and then allows me to connect to it (the TC) wirelessly or by ethernet (then get an address by DHCP in the TC or the access point)? I was hoping to use the TC as a backup for my imac and macbook, as well as a mounting point for drives I plug into it but thus far haven't been able to come up with anything that works ideally (i.e. tried connecting all my stuff to the access point but the backup worked way too slow over 802.11g to do anything realistically when its shared among many other people).

Hardware :: How To Connect Airport Express To Time Capsule To Create Another Network

Jul 3, 2010

I have a Time Capsule providing a wireless network in my home. I would like use my Airport Express to create an additional network, and have it get its internet from one of the wired ethernet ports on the TC. Can you daisy chain them like that? I tried it and so far I haven't been able to get it to work.

Hopefully that makes sense. I'm not trying to set up a WDS with the TC and the Express, I'm trying to plug the Express into one of the ethernet connections on the TC so the Express can share that internet connection as a new, separate network (like what you would do if you had the Express in a hotel room, etc).

I have the Express set up to create a network, and my computer can connect to it, but the internet's not available for some reason. Should I expect this to be able to work?
