Hmm I don't want to lose my data that is stored on it. I am not sure what your advice did to it in the first place really (to allow it to work with Telus) so I am not really sure what I need it to do...I'll look into it after dinner... 😃

Mine just sits on the network as a dumb device, as only a Time Capsule, and not serving other devices. Under the Internet Tab, I chose to Connect using DHCP. Wireless is off. Network is Off.

Oh so it doesn't really matter if its Telus or whatever long as its set like this. It should work then. Cool. Thanks again Mr. NFtoBC.


This helped - then I found I had to "connect" to the external drive in the Finder window.

I had my AirPort Time Capsule connected to my Telus fibreoptic wireless router since switching to TELUS a few months ago and had intermittent issues since. I followed the directions on this post, using the Time Capsule solely as a storage device (no wifi connection) on the network and my devices would intermittently not connect to the wifi network. I also had problems with my FibreOptic TV intermittently disconnecting and being stuck on the "initializing..." screen. Since removing the Time Capsule from the wireless router I haven't had any issues.


Too bad, because I loved having my computer wirelessly backup and store files on my Time Capsule.
