So I got this new 2TB Time Capsule and I've yet to set one up before. Naturally I read the (limited) instructions in the manual and Googled around, but I have several questions and figure they would be better answered here. I did the basic setup for my Time Capsule via its own wireless network. Right now it's connected to my modem+router (single device which I will refer to as 'the router' from here on in). - The capsule is connected via ethernet to the router. I am using one of the LAN ports in the back of the capsule. Should I use the WAN port? - The capsule is flashing amber and is being assigned an automatic private IP address (APIPA). You know, those annoying addresses machines assign to themselves that start with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx - I have tried resetting the router and the capsule (power cycling). - I have tried resetting the capsule to factory settings and reconfiguring. It still flashes amber and picks up a 169.* address. - My Macbook is connected to the Internet. The Time Capsule is not. - The ethernet cable is not faulty, as it connects my Macbook. - Right now the capsule is broadcasting its own wireless network, should I set it to extend my existing one? ---------- EDIT: Okay, so I made the capsule an extension of my regular wifi. Now it has a 192.168 address, but is still flashing orange.. By the way, I'm running OSX Mountain Lion.
