Fits your Wi-Fi lifestyle.
You can rest assured that Time Capsule works with other certified 802.11n devices. And it’s compatible with Mac computers and PCs that use 802.11a, b or g technologies, as well as wireless devices such as iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV.
Simultaneous dual-band operation.
Some Wi-Fi devices can use either 2.4GHz or the higher-speed 5GHz band such as the latest 802.11n-based iPhone, iPod touch, Mac computers, iPad and Apple TV. Instead of choosing one of the bands, Time Capsule operates simultaneously on both bands, and your multiband devices automatically use the best available band.
Set up your Wi-Fi network with your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac.
With the setup assistant built into iOS and OS X, you’re just a few taps or clicks away from setting up a new wireless network or extending your current one. All you need to do is plug in your Time Capsule and connect it to your DSL or cable modem. Then simply select your Time Capsule in Wi-Fi settings in iOS, or from the Wi-Fi menu in OS X, and follow the instructions. The setup assistant does the rest. In less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee, your network is up and running.
Manage your wireless network
from your iOS device or Mac.
Once your network is set up, AirPort Utility for iOS and OS X lets you manage and monitor your Time Capsule from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac. It’s easier than ever to view the status of your Internet connection or add base stations to create a larger network. And if you want to do more — such as add a shared USB printer — it’s just as easy.
Print command central.
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office — Mac and PC users alike — take advantage of one centrally located printer. And if you want to share both a printer and an additional hard drive, you can. Just connect a USB hub to Time Capsule. Whatever the combination, Time Capsule divides and conquers.
