IMac (Intel) :: Will Not Connect To Time Capsule Used As Base Station In Roaming Network

Sep 9, 2014

I have a network that is made of up a Time capsule as a base station and 3 airport express's used to extend my wifi coverage. It is setup as a roaming network with each express hardwired to the base time capsule. I have a iMac that will not connect to the base station, it will only connect to one of the remote express's. The iMac is next to the base satation. Other mac notebooks, iPhone or iPads all connect to the base station when they are near it. Only my iMac will not connect to it.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Vs Base Station - External Drive For Time Machine

Jan 11, 2010

As my 160N series Linksys router neither has gigabit ports, usb connector or dual band networking, I am looking for a replacement.

When it comes to Apple routers I am looking at 2 options - either the base station with an external USB drive or get a 1TB capsule with the buildt in drive and worries regarding reliability.

What I like about the Time Capsule is that it is neat to have all in one, takes up less space and only has 1 plug to attach, while Iike the idea that I can just connect a bigger drive later on the base station solution.

1. Will the connected USB drive function just like the internal drive in the Time Capsule for Time Machine use?

2. Will everything be transparent to Snow Leopard?

3. In case of both units with an attached USB drive - can I control who actually can see the drive and access it?

4. Do they support this DNLA thing so that e.g . PS3 can access an attached drive??

Hardware :: Make The Time Capsule The Primary Base Station?

May 7, 2009

I recently bought a Time Capsule and already own the previous version of Airport Extreme (not dual band, but n/g/b)

I want to make the Time Capsule the primary base station and the Airport Extreme the extender. I have both n and g devices hitting my network.

For the best network throughput, I need to make the Airport Extreme just g only, correct? If I don't, the network performance will "downgrade", correct?

OS X :: Can't Connect To Airport Extreme Base Station?

May 2, 2009

It's a two year old 802.11a/b/g Airport Extreme Base Station.

I've tried connection via wireless and ethernet from two different Macs (one with an 802.11a/b/g Airport Extreme card and one with an 802.11a/b/g/n AE card.) I can ping the base station successfully, but I can't connect to it with Airport Utility.

Hardware :: Is There Any Way To Connect An Airport Express Base Station

Jan 27, 2010

Is there any way to connect an Airport Express base station to a wired network requiring authentication?

I'm using the university network which requires a user name and a password and bought an AE to set up a private wifi network for my mac, ipod touch and printer, without considering this.

I've tried a few things but haven't found anything useful. I guess sharing the connection via my mac's Airport would be possible, but how do I set up the AE to extend the mac's wireless network while it's connected to it? It can't be done from an ipod touch, can it?

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.

MacBook Pro :: Wont Connect To Airport Base Station Anymore

Mar 25, 2012

all other machines have no problems.It worked earlier in the day-put to sleep-came back- now it can't something is wrong with network settings but nothing changed. Two PC's are connected to same cable/Airport base station wirelessly with no issues it's just my machine. I've rebooted a few times-that didn't help. i can get my macbook's airport to work with my wireless aircard so it's not my the internal wireless modem, it's got to be my wireless settings for the airport basestation itself-but nothing chagned in those few hours it was asleep? I have been having issues for a few weeks requiring that I run diagnosis on this home wireless network connection, but it usually gets resolved and coems back on-now it seems gone.

MacBook :: Won't Connect With Airport Bt Homehub / Doesn't Recognise Base Station

Dec 25, 2009

I have just acquired a second-hand iBook G3 (Mac OS X 10.3.9) and I can't connect to my BT HomeHub using the AirPort. I can connect using a cable and the previous owner had no problems with the AirPort. My PC is connected to the BT HomeHub fine.

The AirPort is on and I can see the correct BTHH network in the list. When I try to connect I get the error message "There was an error joining the AirPort network 'BTHomeHub etc." I know this is a common error message but I've been through lots of forums and haven't found any advice that has worked. I tried stuff like cleaning up the keychains and adding '$' to my password.

It could be a problem with my password, because I've tried the Admin password on the back of the hub, the Wireless key BT gave me on the 'Wireless Settings' card, and the password I use for wireless internet on my PC. Does anyone know which one ought to work?

When I go into the AirPort menu and click on Internet Connect, 'AirPort Power' is 'on', there is no signal, and it says 'Base Station ID: Not available'. Do I need to reset my Base Station?

If anyone can help I will be soooo grateful. Thanks.

**I'm a Mac newbie and I'm not a techie, so if you can help me, please be prepared to explain in detail**

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

Feb 27, 2010

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 :: 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?

Hardware :: Get An IMac And An AirPort Extreme Base Station?

Jan 16, 2010

I want to get an iMac and an AirPort Extreme Base Station. I already have a 2WIRE wireless router using 802.11b/g. Do I need to get the AEBS, or will an iMac work with my existing router? And I need to keep my 2WIRE router, so how would I hook up an AEBS to the 2WIRE router? I've heard that you have to set the AEBS to 'bridge' mode or something. Can you also give detailed instructions on how to set up the AEBS with the 2WIRE router?

Hardware :: Using IMac As Base Station For Airport Express And Airtunes

Jun 26, 2009

I have a specific problem that I have tried to research and correct, but still no solutions. Here it is:

I currently have a wireless setup in my house using the IMac as a base station. I have this setup through the "Sharing" tab in System Preferences. I have an ITouch that I then connect to this network and surf the web downstairs, etc. It works great!

I purchased a new Airport Express that I want to plug in downstairs next to the stereo and then use Airtunes to play music over the stereo downstairs. This Airport Express would connect wirelessly to the IMac base station, just like the ITouch does. I also need to still be use the Itouch with this configuration.

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).

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 Versus Airport Extreme Dual Band Base/ext

Jul 4, 2009

I just bought a new Time Capsule and an Airport Extreme. Both are the newfangled dual-band type. At the moment the AEX is the main base station, connected to my DSL modem in the Living Room. The TC extends the AEX network and is in my office.

The instructions suggest the TC should not be a network client and rather be the main base station, and to make the AEX extend the network. How much difference will there be in Time Machine performance between the two topologies?

I would really prefer having the TC in my office, so I can attach via gigabit ethernet to the TC when I'm working there with my MBP. I cannot move the DSL modem to my office since I don't have a phone line there (it's really an upstairs bedroom).

MacBook Pro :: TimeMachine Cannot Connect To Server Popup When Roaming?

Apr 15, 2012

Time machine has suddenly started popping up an error message saying that it cannot connect to server while off-network on my MBP.  I use a timecapsule to wirelessly backup when I am home. At home, it connects fine, no messages, no errors.It just started doing this when I am away - previously it either silently ignored not being able to connect or made a local snapshot.  Either would be fine over popping up the message (multiple times).I've tried the following so far:1. Re-install Lion, restore user, applications, settings from backup - did after an erase of MBP lcoal harddrive to get a full install.
2. sudo tmutil disablelocal; sudo tmutil enablelocal; sudo tmutil snapshot - all worked fine

3.repaired permissions on local hard drive. 

4.verified time capsule.

5.Added timecapsule disk to privacy settings on spotlight

6.I do use dropbox - tried quiting out of it

7.Changed name of time capsule disk

IMac (Intel) :: Why Is Machine Not Finding Time Capsule

I have a desktop mac from mid 2011 and also a 2010 mac mini.  I just got a new time capsule and time machine cannot find the new time capsule.  I know the new time capsule is working because I have a third machine from late 2012 that found the new time capsule easily.  Could it be an operating system issue?  I am running 10.9 on the machine that is working, 10.8 on the mid 2011 machine, and 10.7 on the mac mini.

IMac (Intel) :: Backing Up All But System Files To Time Capsule

Dec 3, 2014

I have a 2013 iMac on OS 10.9.5 with no problems.  I will be receiving a new iMac w Retina Display on Yosemite, which I'll be backing up with a new, unused TC.

I want to copy and transfer files from older iMac to the new one using the TC, but right now I don't want upgrade to Yosemite on the older iMac. 

Can I manually select files from the older iMac to copy to the TC, and what files must I leave out so that there aren't any problems that transferring files from an older OS to a newer one won't arise?

OS X :: Connecting To Base Station Not By SSID?

Mar 3, 2009

Anyway, at my school, I tend to not have any problems getting on the wireless, except there is one place where I can get a connection to the wireless access point, but it will not give me an IP address. I tried release and renew on many occasions. I also tried restarting and all the regular stuff. My school's tech support was not too helpful.

I spoke to some people who have had similar issues and they said, that they have had it with some routers and not other. Because of the nature of the network, there are a lot of base stations all broadcasting with the same SSID. They suggested I try to connect to one of them.

The problem is, by default, OS X connects the station with a given SSID that has the strongest signal. Is there a way to connect to the other ones. Using a widget, I see the other base stations with the same SSID. How do I tell my computer to connect to those?

For what it is worth, I have a 2.2ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook with 2 gigs of Ram and all the latest versions of everything.
