    I just purchased my first MacBookPro 3 weeks ago along with a Time Capsule to setup a wireless network at my home. For year we have always had Dell computers but decided it was time to try for the better! I have set up my laptop, TC and printer wirelessly- but now am having problems with my Dell and the TC.

    My Mac works perfect and I can print through the TC and my printer with the wireless connection. My Dell (with Bonjour and new printer drivers installed) is able to pick up the wireless without a problem- but Airport won't bring up the TC when I open it to configure my printer through the network!

    This is getting really frustrating and the Apple people thought that after installing the drivers my Dell would be able to bring up my printer through the TC. That didn't work.

    Can anyone help? Does my Dell just not cooperate with my Apple hardware?:(

    What OS are you running on the Dell?

    There is a bug with Windows 7 RC, the fix is detailed in this thread. (Anijake's post, halfway down)
