MacBook :: Wireless Printer Not Connecting After Changing Time Capsule Name?
Apr 1, 2012
I have an HP office jet J4680. I have used it wirelessly by being connected to my time capsule network and printing from my macbook for over a year now. I just moved and changed the name of my time capsule and the printer is no longer connected.†I have looked around on how to select the new network but I don't see this option.†How can I link the printer with the network again?
MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 2 ghz intel core 2 duo, 2 gb, ddr3
I begin uni next month and have been offered accommodation. My room won't have WiFi but will have a wired connection. I'm wondering, is it possible to - rather than connect my MacBook - connect the Time Capsule to this connection and create a wireless network? Also, is it simple to switch from one connection (my current WiFi at home) to another (the uni connection)? Finally, is it easy to switch from being connected via Ethernet to using WiFi (after initial backup for example)? The lack of WiFi would really be rubbish when I have an iPhone and Time Capsule.
I need to know how I can set up a system so that I can use the printer and browse the internet wirelessly on the MacBook Pro and have the non-wireless PC connect to the internet and use the printer as well.
It sounds confusing, so hopefully one of you guys will be able to understand it and maybe quickly draw a labeled diagram to show me.
I have a home wireless group with a pc desktop and hp1200 printer.¬† I have been unable to connect my macbook pro (0SX 10.6) to either.¬† I am able to log on to the home wireless network.¬† And my pc laptop can access the printer and desktop files.
I am a new intern with a small company and am trying to connect my Macbook Pro's printer settings to our office printer, which is a LanierLD145. We halso have an HP3600 on the same wireless network which my Macbook can detect and print to just fine via the shared network server. However, when I try to find the LanierLD145 I can't find it anywhere on my shared network or via a wireless to connection in order to print to it from my laptop.†
I have access to the desktop I believe the printer is routed to the server through and have "shared printer with network" via this computer. However, I still cannot find the LD145 icon on my macbook when I try to connect and print, even when going through the "Windows"-> (shared server) route. I've also installed apple's "general lanier printer driver" in hopes have luck finding the printer if I have the driver installed, but that has not worked either. How I can connect the macbook to the LanierLD145 via my wireless server connection?
I have an eMac 1Ghz with 10.3.9 on it and I just bought a new Lexmark Wi-Fi Printer. I have no Extreme card, just a Netgear Wired/Wireless router that's obviously connected to my eMac via CAT5 cable. I set up the printer for wireless, hoping my eMac would use the router as a card-substitute type deal. Well it doesn't. Cannot connect as if it were not there.
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.
got my self a new macbook pro and a time capsule, but when i try to hook it up I can't seem to get it to print wirelessly with my HP Photosmart printer.Have the printer connected to time capsule by usb cable, my macbook recognizes the printer by make and model, but then says the printer is not hooked up.
Recently when booting Yosemite on my MacPro early 2009 I get a message "could not load time machine prepare" but I am able to open it. But when I try to connect to my Time Capsule I get a message, "there is a problem connecting to time capsule". My iMac and Macbook pro both connect to the same time capsule with no problem. It seems the time machine prefpane on the MacPro has been corrupted. What to do?
I have a 1st gen 500GB Time Capsule. The capacity was good when I bought it, but right now 500GB just wont do it for me. So I want to buy a 2TB bare drive and switch out the original 500GB drive. I have done some research on google, and it seems to be doable. But I find some people say that the 1st gen TC would not recognize drives that are bigger than 1TB.
Just want some feedback from people who have done this. Is 1TB really the cap for the 1st gen?
Whenever I plug my Time Capsule into my Macbook with an ethernet cable it is not recognised. On the network setting it says that the ethernet is assigned an IP but whenever I try to start a backup session the device is not displayed? I can connect the Time Capsule wirelessly however due to the time it takes to do the initial backup I want to do it via ethernet.
I just bought a terabyte Time Capsule to take care of backups and files with my new Macbook pro, without me thinking about this stuff at all anymore, that is the Time Capsule concept, right? When I try to set up Time Machine it asks wether I want Time Capsule to work as wireless internet router. Where Im living at the moment, I am connected to a wireless internet system, but I dont have access to the router, or access to use Time Capsule as internet router either, I want to maintain using the wireless internet, and Time Capsule as wireless hard drive only.
I want to clone my hard drive to use on my new one. i dont have an external hd enclosure, though, and would be happy if i didnt have to buy one. i was hoping i could make a clone onto my networked time capsule, then replace the hard drives and somehow boot from the clone from my time capsule.
I have just purchased a new Time Capsule but struggling to set it up in the most effective manner. I currently have a Belkin Wireless Router / Modem that I was using to provide me with internet connection and my home wireless network.
Now I have the TC, I want to use that for my home wireless network but I will need to still use my Belkin router / modem to provide me with the internet connection.
Is there a way I can disable the 'router' element of the belkin unit and just use it as a simple ADSL ethernet modem to connect to my TC and then let the TC set up the network?
Can the Time capsule be connected via USB for the initial transfer? Ineed to get stuff of an old PC, does that mean I need to install a "gigabit" network card in order to do the transfer (I assume there is a difference to the "normal" network card". Third, do I get a 1st get time capsule and "force" (if possible") to use only 'N' while my free WiFi modem from my internet provider broadcasts 'g' signals to other 'g' laptop OR spend a lot more to get the new mode with dual band.
So i searched everywhere i could to try and find an answer to this question, because i imagine at least someone on this planet is having this same problem, but i haven't found anything. so here i am, asking you:
Originally i had bought a Time Capsule 1TB and connected it to my internet modem and used it to create a network, then i had a AirPort express that i used solely for AirTunes to my stereo. So i had wireless backup for my MBP, N-Speed wireless internet for computer and iPhone and wireless music in my room, it was awesome.
but i just moved into a condo downtown that we are subleasing. The owner told me it had wifi so that was a selling point for me. but heres my problem, currently i have my TC and AirTunes on one network, for music and backups, but there is no ethernet connection in my condo, so i cannot directly connect it to the internet, so for internet i connect to the public wifi, and have to switch every time i want music in the living room, or want to back up., and i cant do either at the same time as i connect to the internet.
and i cannot extend the wifi in the building since it is not N. so i followed the instructions to connect my TC and AirPort to my existing WiFi, and to my knowledge, they will both connect as clients and be accessible all through my buildings WiFi. But, when i take them off their own network and connect them to the public wifi they just disappear and i have no way of finding them ever again through AirPort Utility unless i reset them.
is this my problem? what do i need to do? can i connect for the first time to the network through ethernet from my MBP to the TC and turn off my wireless card in my mbp then click accept in safari on my mbp? or can i connect my mbp to the wifi and reset my MAC or IP address to the same as my TC or AirPort then click accept, that way the TC's and AirPort's IP and/or MAC are registered on the network and they can continue to connect without being asked to accept the ToU?
I was using a Western Digital 1T hard drive connected to my Time Capsule USB port. It was set up as Allow file sharing with Time Capsule password. I would like to stop using it here and directly connect it to my Macbook Pro (by firewire). When I try to do this, I can see the drive but get a message that I do not have user permissions to access it. I can't seem to figure out a way around this. Is there something that I can change so that I can directly access the disk? Do I need to reformat the WD drive in Disk Utility to be able to use it directly again?
I will be getting a MBP but I will need more storage, hence the external hard drive. I wanted to buy time capsule but I read that it is not possible to partition it. So, would I be better off with an external hard drive(FireWire 800) that I can actually partition or get time capsule which offers the wireless connection. As for the speed I guess the wireless connection with time capsule must be pretty slow?
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.
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?
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.
I have a mixed Mac/PC environment - Macbook Pro (snow leopard); iMac 21 (leopard); 2 x Dell laptops (XP) - and an existing wifi network from a Belkin 8233-4 N modem/router. Also connected to the wifi network is a WHS for backing up the laptops; an HP printer; 2 iphones; an xbox 360; and a Wii.
I've just bought a 1TB Time Capsule to use to back up the Macs as my previous external time machine hard drive just died (which was connected via USB to the iMac).
At the moment, I've got the TC set up to join my existing wifi network (it's connected via an Ethernet cable from the Belkin wireless router), however I'm getting issues with the wifi network not working properly and being unable to connect to the internet. Every time you wake the Mac, you have to manually reconnect to the wifi (and sometimes even re-enter the password), and things work OK until the Mac goes back to sleep. When I go into the Airport utility, the settings say that the TC is set to create a new network, so I reset it back to join an existing network via ethernet, but then if I go back to these settings a little later (after having problems with the wifi connectivity), they have reverted back to create a new network !
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?
I want to be able to share my printer that is connected to my Time Capsule with my friends on my Guest Network.¬† I have it connected to my personal network but can't seem to give them access without allowing them on my personal network.
