MN-710 can't connect to Time Capsule (Apple Airport Extreme)

Discussion in 'Broadband Hardware' started by Carlos Murrer, Apr 23, 2008.

  1. I recently bought a Time Capsule to use it as a router and external drive. On
    my MacBook Air I've configured the Time Capsule as a router and connected it
    to the internet. My MacBook sees it as a router, sees the wireless network
    and connect through the internet using the wirelesse network. The same thing
    happens to my iphone, wii and PS3.

    My HP desktop runs windows and I was used to connect it to another router
    wirelessly using MN-710 Microsoft Broadband Networking, but now, I can not
    see my new network on it. The network I've created is not available in the
    network list.

    I've configured my time capsule to use G band, as you can see in the
    folowing images:

    Can anyone help me connecting my pc to the new network ?

    are you using windows to view available wireless networks or the
    Microsoft utility? What version of windows?

  3. I am using Windows to view available wireless networks and I can see my
    neighboor network on it, but not mine.

    It's Windows XP, up to date.

    Provided that you have removed your MN-710 completely (software included, if
    any), it appears that the Time Capsule is quite capable of handling all
    aspects and more than most routers. Please Check this link (from Apple) ~>
    http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/setup.html

    And goto the Windows XP-Vista tab to make sure that you've configured the
    router correctly for your operating system and the devices that you wish to
    access. Sounds to me like you may have over-looked something during the
    set-up.

    P.S. Also RE-Check your Fire-Wall configs to make certain they are allowing
    signals for the new router setup.
