I use a Time Capsule as my wireless router. My Macbook connects wirelessly. My PC w/ XP connects via ethernet cable.
My Macbook always has access to the Time Capsule hard drive just like any other external drive. It does not ask for a password prior to accessing it.
My PC w/ Windows always asks for the password before connecting to the Time Capsule hard drive. No password is asked for to connect to the router.
How do I get a PC connected via ethernet to stop asking for a password every time I want to connect to the Time Capsule hard drive?

I spent ages looking for an answer myself until it came to me while I was sorting out another NAS system...u will need to change the way the TC disk is secured. Most people are using just a disk password, so u simply enter a password and u have access to the disk. For MS OSs to access u have to change the mode to user accounts, which will make ANYTHING u already have on the TC disk unreadable...basically is kills any data u have on it when u change the security mode.
Once u have changed it u should be able to log right in, I did this with a new TC but cannot be bothered at the moment to copy 800GB of the TC and then back again just so I can use it via my MS PC :-|
