Setting Advanced Options

Use AirPort Utility to set up your Time Capsule manually if you want to set advanced

Time Capsule options such as advanced security options, closed networks, DHCP lease

time, access control, power controls, user accounts, and more.

To set advanced options:


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

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


If there’s more than one wireless device in the list, select the one you want to

configure. 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.

If you’re making changes to a Time Capsule that has already been set up, you

might have to connect to the network it’s created before making changes to your

Time Capsule.

To choose the wireless network you want to change, on a Macintosh use the AirPort

status menu in the menu bar. On a computer using Windows, hold the pointer over the

wireless connection icon until you see the network name (SSID), and then choose it

from the list if there are multiple networks available.


Choose Manual Setup from the Base Station menu. If you’re prompted for a password,

enter it.

For more about the manual setup features in AirPort Utility, see “Apple AirPort

Networks” at www.apple.com/support/airport.
