    This is the error I get trying to connect to my Time Machine (The server may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again.)

    This is the error I get. I've tried renaming the Time Machine and renaming the apple.com.loginitems.plist file and neither worked.

    It worked for awhile then stopped when I trying to transfer a file from the Time Machine to my MacBook.

    Yes the Time Machine is the router with a HDD inside. I connect to it wirelessly. My Mac Book Pro has the latest Mountain Lion installed. I log into WiFi via the Time Machine. My other Mac Book Air can connect and back up with Time Machine. I can see the Time Machine, but when I try to connect, I get the above error. I tried renaming the Time Capsule and rebooting and I tried renaming or moving at file to the desktop and rebooting. Neither option worked as it did for others on this forum.
