    Hi all!

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to set up my Time Capsule. I've been google-ing all night but can't seem to find the answer. I was hoping someone here could help me.

    So I have two computers at home, a router and a Time Capsule. I mainly use the Time Capsule to back up my computers and transfer stuff between them. I also have roomies which I don't wanna give acces to the Time Capsule without my permission, I'd just like to allow them to connect to get some files every now and then and that's it. That's been my problem, my roomies are having trouble with the internet connection because of my Time Capsule.

    Any advice?

    Is the router you're using wireless?
    Have you disabled wireless on the Time Capsule?
    If not, it's probably interfering. If the TC is plugged into the router with Ethernet, make sure that it's set up in bridge mode under Internet preferences.

    That could be it, they're both wireless. I'll try the bridge mode. Thanks!
