    Unhappy Problem setting up Time Capsule
    I just got the new Time Capsule and I am having a hard time setting it up

    I used the Airport Utility.

    Step 1. It Finds the Time Capsule
    Step 2. I Switch Wireless Networks to set up the time capsule
    Step 3. I Enter the Time Capsule Name and Password
    Step 4. I select the radio button I have a wireless network (It is a linksys wireless network)
    Step 5. I select the radio button I want Time Capsule to Join my wireless network
    Step 6. I choose the my current Wireless network
    Step 7. I choose my security (the one my wireless network uses)
    Step 8. I enter the password for my wireless network
    Step 9. I click Update to update the Time Capsule

    I get a message that say waiting for the Time Capsule to restart.

    The Time Capsule restarts and then just blinks amber and never goes to green.

    I then try and reset it and do it all over again, but no luck. I wish it would give me more info.

    Well what do you know, but I tried it again and instead of selecting 128 security I selected 40 and it worked. The weird thing is my security is 128 so I don't know what the heck the deal is. Also I had to enter the Hex WebKey values for the password instead of the normal password. I had to do that with my Mac Book Pro as well, so I already knew about that.

    Still It would have been nice if I had more info to work with.

    Sounds like your using WEP security for your network. Some ppl have reported problems when trying to use WEP. Most people use WPA, which is a lot more secure.
