    Network and Time Capsule disappears while setting-up Time Machine
    I posted this in networking but received no responses. Thanks in advance for your help!

    I have a brand new iMac, MacBook and Time Capsule.

    After setting up my network, I am able to configure Time Machine on the iMac BUT, as soon as I try to do the same on the MacBook, I loose the network, the TC flashes amber and the Airport Utility does not see a devise. The only fix (3 times in 2 days) is to reset the TC by unplugging then plugging back in while holding the reset button.

    I suspect the problem is with the MacBook but canít find a way to fix.

    I've now lost my entire 4000 song iTune's Library that I migrated to the MacBook - there a minute ago, now gone?! Luckily, I still have a duplicate on my old 667mhz. PowerBook.

    How about this? Save all of my new MacBook's settings, files, etc. via migration assistant transferred to the new iMac. Then, and please tell me how to do this; I restore the new MacBook to its original factory settings. Lastly, I set-up the MacBook as if it were new and, when prompted, reinstall the settings previously transferred to the iMac.

    Seems like a lot of work but Iím at a lost. Please tell me what you think!
