Hi, I managed to set up my HD for Time Machine. the pain point I had is to connect the Time Machine HD to my Mac every time I get home.

Does anyone have a way to set it up like a Time Capsule via Wifi Router or other wireless method?

You're looking for a SMB compatible NAS. Make sure your router supports it though

You have a couple options:
  • Buy a NAS as @Handoff suggested. Make sure to do some research and buy a good one.
  • Use a WiFi router that supports USB drives.
  • If you have more then one Mac in your household, use another Mac computer as your wireless backup point. I personally use my iMac as my wireless backup point and it works great.
