    Hey everyone,
    I'm a college student and currently in an apartment and usually use an ethernet cable to connect to the internet. I recently bought a time capsule and in trying to set it up i plugged the capsule into the ethernet jack and my ethernet cable stopped working. I connected my computer into the capsule and its not the cable thats broken. I'm currently lost on what to try next, when i connect my computer to the jack, it says "nothing is plugged in" or something like that.
    Thanks so much

    First of all, what kind of computer are you using and was ethernet working before you added the Time Capsule?

    Also, is this how you have everything set up:

    Broadband modem>Wired or WiFi Router> and from the router you have the Time capsule and your computer(s)?

    or is it Modem>Time Capsule>Computer?

    I'm just trying to understand what you mean by "ethernet cable stopped working" and "its not the cable thats broken".
