I won't bore you with the myriad of problems (yet) but let me ask what I hope is a simple question... I've had the iMac about a year I bought the Time Capsule I connected wirelessly First backup was taking an age (I know this is supposed to happen) First backup crashed before completing I read that I should connect with an ethernet cable I do, but the Mac is not detecting the connection Is my port dead? How can I tell??? Or is this just another TC problem? Advice will be much appreciated!
