Hi there, I'm setting up my apple time capsule for the first time and I have a quick question. After my first backup do I need to leave my TC connected to my wireless router at all times in order to access the TC/my backups from my computer. At the moment I'm having to keep it connected. Thanks!
It sounds like you may have your Mac connected to the Time Capsule with an Ethernet cable. This is useful for the first backup because Ethernet is much faster than wireless. Once you have the first backup completed, subsequentl incremental backups should only take a few moments, so you can disconnect the Ethernet cable and use your wireless connection if you prefer.
