setup with Apple Time Capsule (TC)


  • Previously used TC for router AND wireless data backup. Now want Alien to be router and use TC for wireless backup only. Computer connects to only 1 wireless network so that would now be Alien.

    Question (1) does the LAN cable connect to Alien from the one TC Ethernet port or one of the 4 TC peripheral ports? (2) configuring TC - do I turn off TC wifi? Or do I “extend” a network? (3) What changes to settings in the iPhone app do I make? Thanks in advance

    I would turn off Wi-Fi. Alien has WiFi6 where TC does not, so I would not want my devices to make the wrong choice and connect to the wrong AP for performance reasons.

    I wish I could answer the other questions for you, but I have never used a Time Capsule so I am not certain on how it should be configured for best results.

    Hello!
    what i have for a set up is running the LAN cable from the AMPLIFI Alien to the WAN port on the TC. In the TC settings I turned the WiFi to off and put the TC in Bridged mode.
    Hope this helps!
