Using Time Capsule with Hub 3.0

I have a Hub 3.0 and I want to be able to use my Apple Time Capsule with it.  Before they forced me to move to this new hub I used to use my Time Capsule as my wifi router and be able to use it to back up my computers wirelessly.

Can anyone please help?

Re: Using Time Capsule with Hub 3.0

Hi cavinmom,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

I'm sorry to read you are having issues with connecting your Apple Time Capsule to the Hub 3.0.

 

Does the Time Capsule work at all if the Hub is in modem mode or router mode?

 

Do you get any error messages when it is connected?

 

On the previous router you had, did you have to enter any settings for the Capsule to work?

 

When the Capsule is connected, do your devices find the wireless network?

 

Let us know how you get on
Sam

Re: Using Time Capsule with Hub 3.0

I use a Time Capsule with my SH3. My suggestion is put the SH3 in modem mode and then use the Time Capsule as your main router and for WiFi purposes (connected via ethernet to the port nearest the co-ax cable on the SH3). It tends to do a better job than the SH3 for networking and WiFi and your Mac's should have no trouble finding it for backup.
