I've been using my TC for a year, in wifi, without problems.
I've changed apartment now, went and turned my modem on, Mac on, everything was connected working properly and ready to go (as usual).
Connected my TC to the power cable, and it started up with solid amber light as usual.
Then instead of connecting with my wifi network (as it did in my old house with old wifi) and turning solid green, it started flashing amber and keeps on doing it.
It just won't "go online", and it says in the menu bar "Time Machine Not Configured", and I won't find the disk if I open the menu for TC preferences.
If I open the Airport Utility, no disk there either and if I tell it to search for disks it does but it won't find anything.
The light just keeps on flashing amber and the disk isn't there, anywhere to be found, or not configured, basically.
But computer and wifi network do work properly, so it's not that either of them is having any problem.
It's the TC itself, like it can't manage to connect to THIS new wifi network, which is also from the same provider as in my old apartment same modem too.
There's no difference at all, I don't know I thought TC would automatically connect to this new wifi and backup on it like it did with the old one?
Maybe not, I hope someone can give me a heads up, the manual isn't helping much.
I have obv. disconnected, connected again, restarted...everything.
Starts up properly but then doesn't go solid green, it never goes online.
I don't know if I should hit the reset button on the back of the TC, like reset it to factory settings? D:
Or maybe just try and re-configure it, but if so, how and where?
It won't let me do that in time machine preferences, or in airport utility.
It just won't find any disk, and I need to backup asap.
I hope I haven't lost all of my previous backups, too.
Only thing left, which might help, but didn't change things much: at the beginning I went to time machine pref. through the menu bar and the disk was there with my name and all, but it said that there was a problem or something, the rest is as stated above.
So I thought I could forget/delete that disk, and maybe re-add it?
Which is not a reset I just deleted it from the list of disks in the pref. or airport utility.
Now as said there's no disk in the list anymore, I wouldn't know what to do.
I deleted it 'cause even if it was there I was still stuck, it wouldn't go online/green, it wouldn't connect, it wouldn't backup, not even disconnecting it and so on.
What should I do?
Hope someone can help, thank you.
If it can help, this is what I see now, not sure what to do. "Not configured" in menu bar, no disk in the TM menu list, nothing found in the airport utility.
