    Dear all,

    I use a Time Capsule as wifi connection for my MacBook Pro, iPad, iPhone and my Lenovo PC and I experience the following problems.

    iPad and iphone: Never any problems
    MacBook Pro: Fails to connect to the internet through the Time Capsule 50% of the time.
    Lenovo PC: Cannot connect to the internet through the Time Capsule.

    I also have a dLink router which I use for backup when the Time Capsule does not work. E.g. If the MacBook Pro does not work with the Time Machine I use the dLink without any problems.

    I have updated the software on the Time Capsule - can anyone give input to this problem?

    Regards

    Anders

    This could be to do with interference caused by surrounding wireless routers. What channel are you broadcasting on? Download and install AP Grapher to see the channels of the surrounding wireless networks and choose one that is not being used.
