I have no problem connecting to my TC network. But when I decided to offer a public network access to it, it can't be reached. The public network appears as available on all devices, you can select it – but no connection. Neither with or without a password.


Any idea what might be wrong?


Thanks a lot!

    If you are referring to the "guest" nework feature on the Time Capsule, keep in mind that this will only work correctly when the TC is connected to a simple modem.....not a modem/router or gateway type of device commonly supplied by most Internet Service Providers.


    Can you provide the make and model number of the device that you likely call your "modem"?
