    Time Capsule without a network? Help Please!
    I am in the market for an external hard drive for my PC and macbook pro unibody. I recently found a Time capsule 500GB on local CL for a pretty good deal (I thought) $80. Where I am living right now though I don't have internet besides tethering off my Iphone, but will be moving to somewhere with internet within the next year. Just wondering if I will be able to use the Time capsule with just the USB? and whether it will also work with my PC?

    Any help or advice is appreciated.

    If you mean can you attach the Time Capsule to your Mac via USB and use it as a hard drive I don't think that will work but I've never tried it.You should be able to use it by connecting it to the Mac via Ethernet. I think you would need to set it in bridge mode so that it is not trying to assign your Mac an IP address.

    It will work just fine via ethernet or over WiFi. It can establish a WiFi network, it just won't be connected to the internet.
