Hi there, This is a basic question. I have looked at other threads, read the manual and so on, but I'm just not understanding the basic principle, so forgive my simplicity. I can access the TC through the network it generates on my laptop. What I don't understand is how I can both be on internet network connection and on TC's network simultaneously? How can I access the TC remotely without going offline? I read something about Cloud but I don't want to be bothered with that unless there's no other way. Is it only possible to do both with an ethernet cable? I don't have one at the moment to try. I know the manual indicates you can use TC to establish a new network or be included in an existing one - I assume I want the latter but I don't know what that means. _____ One other question regarding Time Machine. I'm told I don't have permission to access my backups from a new computer which they weren't originally created from. All of the solutions I found were too technical to follow. For some reason, I was eventually prompted if I wanted to import the backups to the new computer (or something to that effect) and that if I did so, I couldn't restore them on the old computer. I did that, but folders are still locked on the new computer. Thanks.
