    I was having trouble connecting to the internet so I reset my Time Capsule. The reset worked and I was able to reconnect. The problem now is that I am no longer able to back up my Mac Book Pro to the Time Capsule. The warning reads: "The backup disk could not be found. Make sure the backup disk is connected or select a different backup disk."

    I've never had this problem before. Backup usually occurs on a regular basis. Any suggestions?

    It is because your Mac still thinks it is backing up to a disk on an old router. Simply fire up System Preferences from :apple: --> System Preferences --> Time Machine --> Select Disk. Select your disk and the backups will begin again.

    No problem. Time Machine should resume from where it left off. It will load up your Mac's details and then begin backups again.
