      Apple Time Machine Help

      I have had fibre fitted today but i am having a problem connecting my time machine. I am wanting to connect my sky box to this and printer as they aren't near the sky router. I have tried wired and wireless but i cannon get them to configure. Has anyone got any info on how i can set these up. I havnt had a problem before. Ideally i would like to connect the time machine wireless to the router then hard wire the printer and sky. Any help appreciated.

      If you are wanting to connect a Time Capsule, you will need to log into the TC via airport utility. On the wireless tab select extend a wireless network, and then select the wireless network that you would like to join and enter its password. On the internet tab you should connect using DHCP then make sure you click update. You then connect the sky box to one of the ethernet ports on the back of the TC (not the one with the dots above it) and connect your pronter via USB or Ethernet. Once this is done restart the Time Capsule to make sure that all the devices get an IP address.

      I have my TC connected in bridge mode to the sky router so the sky router is doing the work. Works well for me. This way you connect the sky router to the TC port with the three dots. Oh and I switched off the wifi on my sky router.

      That how mine is set-up as well, plus with a bit of port forwarding and simple Apple Script, you can access your TC remotely as well.

      Mine is also in bridge mode, but they stated they prefered a wireless connection so he could connect his sky box and printer.
