I have just set up my internet connection through my time capsule to my imac via ethernet. I cannot get my macbook to join the network. It keeps saying connection timeout. What am I doing wrong?
By "via Ethernet", do you mean that your iMac is connected to the Time Capsule via Ethernet? Are you trying to connect the MacBook via Wi-Fi or Ethernet? If via Wi-Fi, have you tried to connect the MacBook via Ethernet and can you connect the iMac to the Time Capsule via Wi-Fi?MacBook 2.0 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 3, 2009 9:06 AM (in response to ljl2967)Me too.
I just purchased a 1TB TC.
* I use a comcast cable modem
* I use an ethernet cable from my 24" iMac running snow leopard
* I tried connecting wirelessly from my Powerbook, running Leopard. the PB lets me sign on to the guest network, but not the main wireless network.
I followed a link to another form that suggested changing the service order in Sys Pref > Network setting to make sure Airport was the top service setting. It made no difference.
I also went into keychain and removed any airport related password and setting. Also no luck.

They suggested I not use a guest network. So I reconfigured, cancelling the guest network. NOw everything works fine.iBook G3 700 640 RAM 10.4.11 / PB G4 17" 2GB RAM 10.5 / iMac 24" 2.8 Ghz 10.5
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 5:35 AM (in response to Beach-Comber)You likely have a unit that is faulty in some way, there are quite a few others including me with this same problem, guest account makes main account not work. See this thread and contact apple about a fix or replacement.
