I'm having a problem with internet access at the moment. I've got a Time Capsule which is connected up to a Draytek Vigor 100 ADSL modem. In the past 4 or 5 days the Internet has been stalling to a halt. I've discovered that if I go into the Airport configuration utility and choose 'Renew DHCP Lease' on the Internet page everything starts working again.
I'm thinking about getting a Time Capsule. But I have a question. I don't want it to be the main modem in my home. I want to use it to back up wirelessly, or through cable, my important data, e.g. music, photos, videos etc etc. Can I do this through the internet that is already in my house?
I've been trying to get this to work for a few days now, and can't get a solution that's both permanent and will allow me to send to friends/ colleagues. I want to access my TimeCapsule over the internet to get at my files. I have it connected to a Linksys DIR-615 router and the router to a modem. If someone could explain how to set up my airport utility, and the ports for the router, I would be happy. Explaining how to make my time capsule have a consistent IP that I could redirect my domain's DNS to would be amazing.
I recently got a new time capsule but I have difficulties setting up the internet connection. The time capsule is connected to our WAN using a cable in my office. The computers in our organization are authenticated using their MAC address. So, I have to add the MAC address of the time capsule to make it connected to the internet. I want to connect the TC to our WAN using a cable, then I want to connect my MacBook using a wireless connection to the TC.
When I config the TC using the NAT mode (Share a public IP address), I can use the internet but I get a double NAT error and TC's LED is yellow. When I config the TC using the Bridge Mode, the led goes green. Anyway, if I connect my MacBook using wireless I cannot reach the internet. I get no error in this case so I don't know what is happening inside the TC. Interestingly, if I connect the MacBook to the TC using an ethernet cable, it works perfectly! I have added all the MAC addresses of the wired and wireless interfaces to the list of my computers.
My time capsule drops its internet connection on a regular basis. Some times it will reconnect on its own. Sometimes I have to reboot the time capsule and the computer. Sometime I have to reconfirm the tc settings and once I had to delete the time capsule setting and reinstall.
The internet is high speed pppoe and the time capsule firmware is the latest version.
Have been using this device (500GB, Late 2008) for awhile with no issues.
This week, it has been dropping my internet connection at least once per day. This is both wireless and LAN. The green light stays on. To bring it back up, all I do is unplug and it resets, so I don't think it is the DSL modem.
I am the Principal of a school and because of budget cuts - scary piece ahead - also the tech coordinator. I have a few older eMacs, some with airport cards and some without. My question/problem: I want to hook an eMac 10.4.11 directly into the Time Capsule to access the internet (the time capsule is acting as an extension of our wireless network). I have done this before successfully using an airport extreme, however, I am not successful to date in doing this with time capsule. It has been a while since I set up a computer this way. My question is am I missing a trick (using ethernet cord into LAN port), or is it not possible.
after reading a lot manuals and threads I'm now completely lost and can't get it run.
This is what I'd like to do: 1. I have Linksys router set up as wifi hotspot 2. My iMac accesses internet via wifi via linksys 3. I'd like to hook time capsule via ethernet cable to my imac 4. i want time capsule to use my iMac's internet but extend at the same time the wifi internet access
a. Can I backup from iMac to time capsule via ethernet? b. Which settings I have to do on my iMac and which on time capsule to get my scenario run ?
I use my time capsule to transfer files between various computers, including ones that aren't on my same home network. For mac's, setting up filesharing over the internet works great, and I don't have any issues connecting to the time capsule remotely using [URL]
The issue comes if I try to connect a windows XP PC to my time capsule as a file server. I can connect one just fine if its on the local network, but I have been unable to do so for one remotely. Every indication I've seen online says that it should be possible to connect to via SMB, but I haven't been able to get it to work. Are there any specific settings that should be chosen either on the time capsule or on the PC to get it to work? Perhaps I'm not connecting to it via the PC correctly. Is connecting to it as a network drive at [URL] not correct? I've come across a few guides related to similar topics, but they all assume that the time capsule is just connected to your local network, and mine is also acting as my router.
Does it make a difference in speed if I have the time capsule connected directly to the internet, opposed to it connecting wirelessly? I'm still backing up and using the Time Capsule wirelessly from my computer, but I have the internet plugged directly into it- making a wireless network for my laptop to pick up. Does it make a difference? I would kindof imagine that it would only make much difference if I plugged my laptop itself to the Time Capsule directly, since wireless internet speed doesn't seem to different on it's own anyway.
I seriously need your help with an ongoing issue that's been affecting my time capsule for a few weeks now. First of all, my Xbox360 is connected with a wire to my time capsule and now, it's pretty much impossible to play any games online. In Modern Warfare 2, I get horrible lag and after a game or two, the disconnected from xbox live appears and the only way for me to get back the connection is by unpluging the Time Capsule and restarting the Xbox. This gets me a good connection for 30-45 min and after that, same problem. I don't really know what could be causing this since I also lose connection while playing a single player game that doesn't require any incoming data. Sometimes, I just turn on the console, I see the xbox icon searching for an internet connection and then nothing.
I really need your input on this because everything else connected to my Time Capsule works perfectly (PS3 and Wii wireless and a Powerbook wired). The Powerbook never loses the connection.
I'm soon to start working from a shared office and my internet will be gained wirelessly from a shared router.As I cannot modify the wireless network as it will interfere with everyone else Can i simply attach my time capsule via ethernet direct to my macbook pro, so that it does all the backup goodness and yet still have my wireless internet conneection open.
MAC to TC wired with MAC to INTERNET Wireless Without interference.
I'm having trouble figuring out how to set up my Time Capsule. So I have two computers at home, a router and a Time Capsule. I mainly use the Time Capsule to back up my computers and transfer stuff between them. I also have roomies which I don't wanna give access to the Time Capsule without my permission, I'd just like to allow them to connect to get some files every now and then and that's it. That's been my problem, my roomies are having trouble with the internet connection because of my Time Capsule.
I recently bought a Macbook Pro (my first Mac). I'm having a problem whereby it keeps disconnecting (a few times a day) from the internet. When I click on network preferences -> Assist Me -> Diagnostics... the ISP, Internet & Server lights are red. I click continue under airport, select my network and it then says my internet appears to be working which it does until the next time.
Have an iMac running SL 10.6.8 and every few minutes my internet connection is interrupted. But airport shows connected to my network. I have to open network preferences and it shows airport connected but ISP and Internet will be yellow or red. Then I have to go to the Diagnostics button and Airport will be green. I then hit continue and wait for my network to show up in the list and then rejoin. Then I have internet for a bit until it happens again. All other computers and devices on this network are fine. Must have a corrupted file on this iMac.
I have a Bluetooth DUN connection setup with my Verizon cell phone (EnV Touch). It works great most of the time. It will randomly lose connection (data will stop transmitting), but it will not disconnect or tell me it stopped working. It looks like it is working fine on the top right menu bar, but data will not send back and forth.
My mac mini has problems connecting to the internet it keeps disconnecting from the preferred network. When trying to reconnect, it says there's an error trying to join the network. When it can connect, it's only for a brief period. I bought it a while back and had this problem back then. I stored it away, and only recently dug it out again still having the same problem.
I have windows xp sp3 and while playing my game, the internet keeps disconnecting about every 5 minutes. Then a bubble comes up and says, "Limited or no connectivity" and I have no internet. So I have to disconnect and connect again to get another 5 minutes before it does it again. The modem I have is this: Verizon GT704WG Wireless DSL Modem/Router To narrow the problem down I went to another house with another wireless and it worked without any problem there.
For the past day of so I have been trying to backup my files, I am not using the Time Capsule but an external HDD for backups etc. But since the new update of 10.6.2 it keeps disconnecting my hard drive after about 10 seconds. I have tried to quickly do a disk utility check on it, but its not on the list. Is there anyway to get a new driver for it or something as i have important documents on there that need to accessed.
I am planning on purchasing a mac mini solely for the purpose of playing music - it will be hooked up to a hi-fi amplifier and speakers. All of the music that will be on the computer will be in lossless format, which is very large. I will need a lot (320+ GB?) of storage.
I'm wondering if I can cut costs by buying an old 80 GB mini and augmenting its hard drive with a time capsule. I was planning on buying a time capsule anyway, so I could save something like $300. My questions are: would I be able to stream music from the time capsule to the mac mini? Would I be able to import music from itunes directly onto the time capsule? If I hook the mini up to the time capsule via USB, can it serve as a hard-drive, even if my internet is down? Is it going to be much more worth my time to buck up and buy a new 320 GB mini?
I'm on holiday using my mobile phone (Nokia N80) to connect to the Internet over GPRS / EDGE / UMTS. Everything works like a charm, but often the Internet Connect applet drops the connection and just hangs disconnecting.
I'm running OS X 10.4.7 on a 17" Macbook pro, but I have the same result on a iBook G4, same OS X version, and even trying with a different mobile phone (Nokia 6600) and different network service provider.
