    hey. My iBook suddenly just stopped connection to my time capsules network. Everytime I can on my network to join it, it asks for my password which I then put in, then it says connection timeout. I have restarted both the laptop and time capsule but it still won't connect. I can get on the network perfectly fine on my iPhone but not laptop. Anybody know what's wrong? Thanks.

    Hey, not sure if this will fix the problem but it works for me sometimes. Sometimes, if i go into system preferences-->network-->airport-->advanced-->TCP/IP tab and renew the DHCP lease, that can solve some weird problems. It may not be the fix for the situation, but its at least worth a shot.

    Hey thanks for your advice, luckily we found out that it was our modem that wasn't working so we just changed it and all good. Thanks a lot for the advice. :)
