    Hi ...

    I have just added a time capsule and am using it to run my wireless network. Works well with the mac.

    My Problem is that I can't connect my sony vio PCG-Z1RSP to it wirelessly.

    I can connect usng ethernet but I want to connect using the wireless capability but am unable to. When I am connected via ethernet I can see the time capsule and drag and drop xp folders to the time machine which is cool.

    I have airport on my pc and bonjour doesn't seem to help connecting. When I try to connect via the on board wireless on off switch then search for the network it finds it but reuires a hex key which I have provided for it but the system will still not accept it.

    I have looked for updated drivers for my network card but to no avail.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    What type of security do you have on your Time Capsule? If it's WPA2, you may need the Windows XP WPA2 Hotfix from Microsoft (do a search either on google or Microsoft's website). If not, or if you are still having issues, I have read that including a dollar sign ($) before the hex key works for most people. So instead of entering "AABBCCDDEEFF", you would enter "$AABBCCDDEEFF". Hope that helps.
