    WiFi Problems with iPad Pro and Time Capsule

    Hello forum, with my former iPad Air 2 and my time capsule I never had any WiFi issues. Now I have a new Ipad Pro and every few days the iPad connects to my time capsule Wifi but I have zero data throughput. The only thing that works is to shut off the iPad and start new. Only disable WiFi on...

    Time Capsule (4th Gen) Not Connecting to Some Apple Sites/Servers

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, but not new to the site or tech. As the subject states, for some reason, I am being blocked from seeing certain sites or having iMessage work properly (synching and non-delivery). I have tried on both regular and 5GHz networks. It started a few days ago from...

    Time Machine Backups on Time Capsule

    Hey Guys, I think this problem started when I installed Sierra, but I cannot be 100% sure actually. So I got a 2TB Time Capsule a while ago because I wanted to be able to wirelessly backup my iMac and MacBook. I setup the whole thing and even use it as a router. All of this worked fine on both...

    Time Capsule backup speed?

    I have a DSL internet connection. If I get an AirPort Time Capsule, will backups be sent to it at my 5Mb/s internet speed? Or will it transfer more quickly between the Mac and Time Capsule?

    Apollo Promise or Time Capsule

    Can someone explain the difference between the two? I bought the Promise but now am wondering if I need the time machine. My work requires me to hold a lot of photos but I need to easily access those photos as well. Any advice?

    Resolved AirPort Extreme Replacing Time Capsule as Router

    My wifi has been giving us fits as of late, and I'm fairly certain it's not the signal from the neighborhood node nor my modem, so that left my 2009 2TB Apple Time Capsule as the culprit. My Aiport Extreme showed up today, and I've had no issues with XBox, iPad, iMac, iPhones, etc. since...

    4th generation time capsule speed limits

    I have changed my internet service provider to get speed of 200 MBPS from Comcast. I have got 4th generation time capsule (802.11n). Will my time capsule be able to handle this speed ? OR Do I need to plan for an upgrade for latest time capsule with 802.11ac?

    How do I set up Time Capsule just for Time Machine?

    I have a current gen Time Capsule, but want to use a newer router instead that improves my WiFi coverage inside my home. However, I want to still use the Time Capsule for backups/Time Machine purposes. Is this possible? If anyone has done it, would you be kind enough to give me instructions on...

    Time Capsule issue

    I'm running a late 2012 iMac running 10.9.5 with a similar aged Time capsule connected via ethernet. Been set up like this since I bought it.

    Can I use 2010 Time Capsule as an EHD

    I now have a redundant 2010 Time Capsule, not needed for Wi-Fi or back up (which BTW never worked well anyway!) What to do with it, chuck it or is it possible to utilise the space on it for just storing some files films photos? If so how do I do it. Have looked on You Tube but nothing that is...
