I have time machine backing up to time capsule over an ethernet cable.


Ideally, I would like to hide the TC somewhere about the house and back up to it over wifi. It would have no physical connection except to mains power. Can I do this? If so, what settings do I use? I have tried every combination of settings in AIrport/TC/edit but I can only ever get it to connect to my Belkin router via the ethernet cable.

    The TC is designed to go into the network..


    You can set it to work via wireless.. the option is hidden.. press option key when you choose wireless mode and join wireless network will pop up. It is hidden because it is not recommended.


    If you use it your backups will be very slow. If you are ok with that go ahead.. otherwise use a long ethernet and hide the TC where you like.
