hi everyone,
maybe you have an idea.
i had my time machine working just fine until september, 12 - when updated to lion. finally i solved the problem that the time machine couldn't complete backup with apple care. i had the time machine directly connected to my computer via lan cable. after that i have i put the lan cable back into my router and the time capsule. Apple care told me to reset the time capsule and set up the time machine via airport in a WLAN mode...
here starts the problem. it asks me for data for the PPPoe connection - i enter my wlan net name + password - and it doesn't connect. it always comes up with a connection error

any idea what im doing wrong?
