Hey gang,

Newbie here so please pardon my ignorance...

I wanted to get your input on my home network setup. I recently bought a 3Tb Time Capsule to I guess be the center of my home network. It's currently hooked up to my Brother 2140 Printer through a USB and hardwired to my cable.

Devices that I use in the house include:
- 1 iPad 2
- 2 iPhone 4S
- 1 samsung galaxy tab
- 1 iMac
- laptop PC
- 1 Roku 3
- 1 PS3

Let me say that everything does works. All devices have internet access. However, I don't feel like I'm completed connected or integrated. When I look at AirPort Utility network map I only see "Internet" and "Time Capsule" connected. Shouldn't I see the other devices somewhere on this map?

Current expectations include:
- print from any device listed above (at the present time, I can only print wireless from the iMac)
- share files
- stream movies from any of these devices

Any thoughts?
QUOTE Thanks

you won't see other devices on the airport utility "network map".

to view the devices connected to your TC just click on it and you'll get a mix of device names and IP addresses.

i had a bit of a job enabling wireless printing from my daughter's windows laptop but found the solution here:

Windows Printing For Apple AirPort Extreme without Bonjour Wireless wifi - YouTube

I haven't set up file sharing so can't help there I'm afraid sorry.

what have the Roman's ever done for us?

QUOTE Thanks
