Thanks for the help Kappy.
By the way the link you supplied is not correct. Here is the link. http://support.apple.com/kb/PH5104
I am not familair with the bridging concept. So...I just hardwire the TC into the router and then configure based on the instructions in the link? And Mac OS X will just take care of the rest.
Sorry for the bad link. If you want to set the device into Bridge Mode then you have to run an Ethernet cable from the Time Capsule to one of the open LAN ports on your regular router, then set the Time Capsule to Join an existing network. A better solution is simply replace your old router with the Time Capsule.
Use it in its factory default state. I'm assuming you will have removed the router currently connected to your cable modem. If you actually have a modem/gateway-router, then you cannot replace that router with the Time Capsule as a router.
Ethernet is just faster than wireless. It doesn't make any difference how you connect the computer by Ethernet into your network. The speed difference is moving from wireless to Ethernet.
Hi, I'm actually researching to see if a TC will be a good choice for my configuration, I have the following hardware:
- Alcatel 3Ve.A2010TEL VDSL Modem
- Linksys EA4500 router
- iMac (1TB HD)
- MacBook Pro (500GB HD)
- Mini Server (500GB HD)
- MacBook (250GB HD)
- MacBook Air (128GB Flash)
- 2 PCs with Windows 7 (250GB HD)
- 1 Wireless Laser Printer
- 2 iPad
- 4 iPhone 5
The iMac, and Mini have external backup disc for Time Machine, but there is not enough capacity for their backups. So I want to know if a 3TB Time Capsul will be a solution for my setup, and if replacing my Linksys EA4500 router is needed or if runing the TC in Bridge mode will do.
Please any suggestion will be helpful before I invest purchasing the TC.
Thanks a lot,
