So I bought a Time Capsule 2TB today and was looking forward to backup my stuff. However, few minutes after starting my first backup process, web pages stopped loading, even though I was connected to the Time Capsule and the Time Capsule showed the green light. I got an error message saying something about an IP-adress (sorry I didn't get that).

I unplugged and plugged the ethernet caple into the Time Capsule, and it was all good again. However, when I started a new backuping process, the Time Machine window said it was:

62 377 days remaining of the backup process.

And it keeps up in this pace. Currently doing abput 1 kb a minute.

So, I heard rumors that Time Machine is struggling in 10.8.2. I really, really, really need to backup this machine within a day (my laptop is getting replaced) - any suggestions?

just plug the time capsule directly into the laptop. That is by far the quickest way to backup
