Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the right section, so apologies if I´m wrong. Thing is I have a Time Capsule, the tall slim one, I use as a network drive. I used to use it as a router too so I could set up my MS surface and my MB pro to access the drive, but that was years ago. I just moved to a new place, no longer have that Surface, and I am using my time capsule as a wifi point, connected to my main router in the other side of the house through an ethernet cable. My macbook has been no issue, automatically detected it and I can access the drive, no mater I´m conected directly to the time capsule or trhough the router, the issue comes with my desktop, it is placed where the router is, and connected via wifi, but I have no idea how to access the time capsule share drive or where to start. Any help?

I have no hands on experience with Time Capsule itself, but it is basically a Network Attached Storage (NAS). You can map the Time Capsule in Windows as a network drive. Basically as you can with any NAS.

Found some points for you to start:
