    Welcome to the discussion area, MATMAD!

    Last question first, +2.- How I can set up my Time Capsule for share the IP addresses.+

    This is the correct setting for your Time Capsule...IF...you are using a simple modem with only one ethernet port.

    Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility
    Click Manual Setup
    Click the Internet icon
    Connection Sharing = Share a public IP address

    The correct setting for your Time Capsule....IF....you have a gateway (which is a combination modem and router on one chassis with 3-4 ethernet ports) is as follows:

    Connection Sharing = Off (Bridge Mode)

    +1.- I can`t set up my printer (xerox phaser 6125) on the wireless network (Time Capsule)+

    You did not tell us if you were trying to connect to the Time Capsule's USB port for this, but I will guess that may be what you are trying to do. The best approach here is Apple's Printer Troubleshooting Guide.

    Please keep in mind that not all printers are compatible with the Time Capsule. If you try all the steps in the guide and things still won't work correctly, then you may have an incompatible device.

    Bob, thanks.

    1.- I can`t setup the Connection Sharing for Share a public IP addres, because I can`t access to that option.

    2.- The printer is connected to TC with ethernet cable.

    Please tell me what happens after each of the steps that I gave you:

    On your Mac, Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility

    Click Manual Setup

    Click the Internet icon

    Connection Sharing = Share a public IP address

    Ok.
    When I click on the Internet icon, I can`t access to the the option *"Connection Sharing = Share a public IP address*".
    I see it, but I can`t access it, I don`t know the reasons
    Kind regards,

    If you open AirPort Utility, click Manual Setup and then click the Wireless tab below the row of icons, what setting do you see for Wireless Mode?
  • MATMAD Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Ok.

    I have to translate, since my setup is in spanish.

    When I opened the AirPort Utility, on Manual Setup the Wireless Mode is "*create a wireless network*" (crear una red inalámbrica).

    Regards,

    Thanks for the additional information.

    I cannot explain why you are unable to choose the "Share a public IP address" option. I've checked this on an AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express that I have here and the option is always available.

    I do not know if you may have a problem with your device or with the AirPort Utility application.
