Your vids should stream as long as your airport has a decent signal from the TC. Doesnt really have to be the same room.

If xbox 360 is wireless capable, then you just need to join the network you created when setting up the TC, or you could just take an ethernet cable and stick it one of the LAN ports in the TC and the other end to the xbox 360. Do the same with the Wii.

I have tried this. I am not knew to routers but I am new to apple routers. I tried a wired connection and a wireless but neither would allow the Xbox or Wii to connect, only the PS3. No one else has this problem/experience?

I googled for "xbox 360 time capsule" and it seems there has been lots of discussion around this and someone has mentioned that older xbox 360's doesnt play nice with the TC. GOOGLE NOW to find out more.

And also try selecting only b/g in the airport utility coz your wireless adapter for xbox 360 probably doesnt support the N standard.

After connecting the ethernet cables on both ends (TC and 360) do you see xbox resolving any kind of ip address? have you set it to get ip automatically through DHCP?

I am new to the forum and new to MAC. I just bought a Time Capsule this weekend for my wife's Macbook. We have verizon fios which has one box which is the modem and the wireless box. I was able to connect the Time Capsule to the existing network wirelessly as an extender. I chose options 1 (I have a wireless network and want to add Time Capsule to it) and then 2 (have Time Capsule join network wirelessly) on the Time Capsule setup. I have 2 PCs--1 connected by ethernet and one connected by wireless. My PC with the ethernet connection connected directly to the version modem works just fine. But, now I am unable to connect to my network wirelessly with my other PC (laptop). THe error I get says "limited or no connectivety". I can join the network but it just doesn't connect. When I unplug the Time Capsule, I can connect wirelessly to the network without any problems.

I really don't need the N network and just want to keep getting my wireless from my verizon box. I just want my wife's Macbook to be able to backup and print wirelessly. I googled my problem and I found this series of posts. Can anyone help me?

I just wanted to thank mojonandha for providing those invaluable instructions on setting up the Time Capsule & getting Time Machine to work with it.

I had been fighting with my Time Capsule to work until I came across this post. After following mojonandha's instructions, I finally saw the green light on my Time Capsule for the first time. It was such a relief.

So again, mojonandha thank you.

P.S. Moderators, you might want to consider making mojonandha post a sticky so that others can find it easier -- if it hasn't been done yet.

Found this thread to be very useful as having exactly the same issue.

Having looked at the screenshots and instructions on the first page, I am left with 3 questions:

1. How do you follow this process if you do not have any ethernet cables? Is this another purchase I am now going to need to make?

2. Must they always remain connected to my current modem/router and iMac? (Mod./Rou. is currently sited upstairs, iMac downstairs so a bit of an issue)

3. Is this literally the only way of getting this stuff working? i.e. via cables.

I have a simple set up, 1 x Linksys WAG-354G modem/router upstairs delivering internet to numerous wireless units around the house. I bought the TC based on recommendation and have only jumped ship to the Mac world last month, a bit bemused as to why this is so difficult to get working really!? Any help with the above appreciated, thank you!

I recently had to erase my HD and do a complete restore from my Time Machine external drive. Luckily everything,including programs, were restored to where they were during the last backup. This mishap underscored the importance of having everything backed-up and made me truly appreciate Time Machine. As a result I am considering adding Time Capsule as a secondary Time Machine drive(in addition to the G-drive I have connected via firewire)to act as a back-up to the back-up. I was wondering if configuring TC the way it's suggested here(as a Bridge) would allow me to do that. Would I be able to do a full back-up on TC by changing the volume in Time Machine's setting to that of TC? Can I then, going forward, do back-ups to both drives by changing the volume manually? To be clear, i want two full back-up records on seperate drives at any given time. I am accustomed to doing my back-ups manually as I don't want my back-up HD running continuously or every hour or so as is suggested by Apple. My feeling is that my external HD will last longer by not being powered-on 24/7. Another reason why I like TC over simply getting a second external HD is because of the networking capability of TC. From what I've gathered, TC is capable of sending a much stronger signal vs what I have now. I get a weak signal as it is in my basement and I'm hopeful this will improve streaming to my ps3 and iPhone when I'm downstairs. Great thread here by the way and many thanks for all of the info. Cheers,Luis

Hi mojonandha!
I followed your step by step procedure from the other thread until the part where you say unplug the ethernet cable from your Mac. I did that but then I couldn't connect wirelessly to my TC. My Network doesn't show anything at all. Though I can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable connected to the TC & my TC has a steady green light.

I can also connect my iPhone wirelessly to the TC.

I want to connect my Macbook wirelessly as well. Any help please...

Thanks
