    Specs:
    Macbook Pro 2.4Ghz, ipod classic 160gb, iphone4 16gb, imac g4, ipod 2nd gen 40gb
    Wifi gone from Time Capsule.
    We had a power cut last week, and ever since I haven't been able to use wifi through my TC.
    I can see the network, but can't connect. I get a connection time out error.

    I can connect through it using ethernet no problem.

    Occasionally, I could connect with my phone, but it would only stay connected for a few minutes.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,

    I've tried reset, hard reset and restore defaults.
    Same problem returns each time.

    Is there a way to completely factory reset it and start from scratch?
    Or any other ideas what might cause this problem?

    Thanks.

    The power glitch may have damaged your Time Capsule's WiFi radio if ethernet is working and it's just the WiFi portion that's not. In the meantime, this Apple Article explains about resetting the Time Capsule: LINK Try a reset to see if that brings it back. If not, it may have been damaged.

    Looks like it's damaged so. Thanks for the replies.
