My time capsule was set up fine.  I had some network issues at my house, and the technician changed the network SSID.  Since then, I can't see the time capsule from any machine, and the light flashes yellow.  Any suggestions?

Time Capsule, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Pull the TC from the network.. plug it by ethernet into a computer.. press and hold the reset until front LED flashes rapidly.. about 10sec.. and redo the setup from scratch.


    It sounds like you have the TC setup to join a wireless network.. this is a poor method. If possible bridge the TC and plug it in by ethernet. Then create a wireless network.. this can be the same or different to the existing wireless depending on how you use network.
