Storage for macbook

I have a macbook, and I really need to get easy wireless storage. I have looked at the 'Time Capsule' on apple.com, but I was just wondering if there was a cheeper alternative.

Thanks

Yes there is a cheaper alternative.

The Airport Extreme router comes with a USB port that supports external storage devices. Instead of using the TC's built in HDD. You can simply purchase the AE and plug an external USB drive.

The advantage of the TC is just how neat and convenient everything is. Do note though that users have reported the TC wifi connection being markedly slower than the AE. I've had the experience myself. TC was a huge let down.

I don't think there is another wireless option? You will probably have to buy an external hard drive and use your USB port. That will be your cheapest option.

Not able to connect the extender to my apple time capsule? no wps button. can i use this extender?


Hi, yes you will be able to use the Netgear range extender with the Apple Time Capsule, provided you configure the Time Capsule's wireless settings based from the wireless security you have setup on the Netgear router or extender. No need for WPS button. Just treat the time capsule just like another wireless laptop.
For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->> http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/wireless.html

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

Welcome to Fixya

You dont need a CD or driver to connect to time capsule. All you need to do is to have you MACbook detect the Time capsuple. Open AirPort Utility, select Time Capsule, and click Continue. Enter the password of the time capsule if incase you secured the router.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Change the scale in the print options. The print options can be seen when you start to print something. There will be an option asking "print to scale"...select that and you should be fine.

Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470


turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...
