    2012 15" MacBook Pro OS 10.8, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7, 4GB Ram
    2008 Time Capsule

    I have a 2008 Time Capsule that has been working beautifully for the last...Well...Long time...THEN I changed the security of our wireless router from WPA2 to WEP so that it would support the wireless on an older laptop in our house. NOW that it's WEP, I cannot connect the Time Capsule back to my computer to perform a backup.

    What am I doing wrong? Please share your thoughts! Thanks!

    I highly recommend keeping WPA2 and get a newer wireless dongle or hardwire the older laptop, WEP is to easy to hack its a bad security risk.

    Go back to WPA2 Personal as suggested. No security in WEP.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Agreed - Macs have had issues with WEP for years - which is a good thing since your local neighborhood 8 yr old can crack it in about 5 minutes - or less.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
