Creating a New Wireless Network

You can use the AirPort Utility setup assistant to create a new wireless network. The

setup assistant guides you through the steps necessary to name your network, protect

your network with a password, and set other options.

If you plan to share a USB printer or USB hard disk on your network:


Connect the printer or hard disk to the Time Capsule USB (d

) port.


Open AirPort Utility, located in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder on a

Macintosh, or in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.


Select your Time Capsule and click Continue.

If you don’t see the Time Capsule you want to configure, click Rescan to scan for

available wireless devices, and then select your Time Capsule from the list.


Follow the onscreen instructions to create a new network.
