Apple 2TB AirPort Time Capsule Wireless Router




The Apple AirPort Time Capsule 2TB is the perfect addition to any home or office with multiple Mac users. This Apple wireless router serves as a WiFi base station and a backup device, helping you save space and avoid the hassle of setting up multiple devices.

With the 2TB Time Capsule, you can set up a wireless network and create automated backups of networked Macs all from one device. As a router, Time Capsule uses the latest wireless networking technology from Apple to create ultra-fast WiFi networks. Time Capsule is capable of supporting 802.11ac WiFi, which delivers data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps. At these speeds, Web browsing and downloads are significantly faster. Dual-band support boosts Time Capsule’s performance even further, so each networked device can make the most of available data rates. Beamforming technology strengthens the AirPort Time Capsule’s WiFi signal, so devices can join Time Capsule’s wireless networks more easily.

The AirPort Time Capsule can also help you create backups of your Mac and any other Mac on the Time Capsule’s network. The Time Capsule is perfectly compatible with Time Machine, so automating system backups is a quick, hassle-free process. Once the initial backup is completed, Time Capsule automatically and continuously updates its saved backup copies. Backups through the Time Capsule are up to 50% faster, too, since the Time Capsule uses the fastest wireless connection available.

Setting up the Apple AirPort Time Capsule 2TB is easy through built-in setup assistants in iOS and OS X. So whether you’re using an iPad Air or a 15.4-inch Macbook Pro 2.3GHz quad-core Intel i7, you can set up a wireless network in minutes.

AirPort Time Capsule 2TB

Back up a lifetimes worth of memories with AirPort Time Capsule, a wireless hard drive that works seamlessly with Time Machine in OS X. Its also a full-featured Wi-Fi base station with the latest 802.11ac technology and simultaneous dual-band support. Choose from 2TB and 3TB models.

Automatic wireless backup.

AirPort Time Capsule includes a 2TB or 3TB hard drive that works with Time Machine in OS X to create the perfect no-hassle backup solution.1 There are no cables, and you can back up all the Mac computers in your home to a central location - automatically, wirelessly, and in the background.

Easy setup for iOS and OS X.

Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Time Capsule and use the built-in setup assistant to create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If youre using a Mac, use the built-in AirPort Utility. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

Ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

With 802.11ac technology and a powerful beamforming antenna array, AirPort Time Capsule gives you up to 3x faster Wi-Fi and a stronger, clearer signal. And because it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time, your wireless devices will automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest performance possible.

Share your hard drive or printer.

AirPort Time Capsule can turn any external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network. So all the documents, videos, photos, and other files instantly become available to anyone, Mac and PC users alike. You can even connect a printer and share it wirelessly.

Designed with performance in mind.

With the antennas at the top of the elevated design, AirPort Time Capsule now has a higher platform for dispersing the signal. We also increased the number of antennas. There are now six of them - three for the 2.4GHz band and three for the 5GHz band. Together with 802.11ac technology, they let you connect faster, farther, and with more power than ever before.

Compatibility and security.

Any Wi-Fi device you have will work with AirPort Time Capsule. Thats because its compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac specifications. And since AirPort Time Capsule features a built-in firewall that protects your network from malicious Internet attacks, you can enjoy the web with peace of mind.

so far so good, 2013-07-05
By jetjocky 
I just connected it yesterday. The transfer from airport extreme to time capsule went very smoothly and so far all the functions i’ve tried have worked, the webpage, VPN, and internet access from all computers in the house, all have worked. It seems to run cooler then the airport extreme.

Happy with it, 2013-07-11
By Steve 
Works as advertised. Strong wifi signal and effortlessly backing up two computers using Time Machine. One problem and a piece of advice: I had trouble setting up a new network using my iMac, which is an old one (2007), though up-to-date on OS and Airport Utility. My computer could see the device but couldn't initialize it. The solution (recommended by AppleCare) was to set up the network using an iPad. That worked perfectly. So my advice is that if you have an old computer and the set-up isn't working, try it on an iPad, iPhone, iPod, or a newer computer if you have one.

The Latest Airport Time Capsule is AMAZING, 2013-08-20
By Daniel Moravec 
I used to have to use range extenders and airport expresses throughout my home because I live in a high-rise condo with thick cement walls. Not anymore! Buying this new airport express with the beamport technology has allowed me to disconnect every range extender in my condo, and gives me extremely fast wifi where I couldn't get it before.

I'm simply amazed, and now I can sell all my old airport expresses, which will basically end up paying for my new Time Capsule. Great invention Apple!

2 TB Time Capsule, 2013-10-16
By Gordon Watkins 
I bought this Time Capsule to go with my new IMac and it was quick to set up and works flawlessly as both a router and for data backup and storage and for syncing with my Macbook and IPad. It's elegant, innocuous and best of all it works!

Apple AirPort Time Capsule 2TB with 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 2013-11-19
By Doug 
Just installed this, seems to work exactly as expected. The Airport Utility on my Mac makes it easy to setup. My only complaint would be the lack of any way to mount the device. It appears to be made to sit on a desk. In my case I wanted to mount it high on a wall in my Great Room Loft. I had to make a clear plastic bracket to allow me to hang it.

Apple Airport Time Capsule Excels, 2013-12-19
By S Lindle 
I had been having slow period of data transmission particularly when multiple people with multiple devices were accessing my wifi as visitors. I replaced the old router with this new Apple product and have had fast streaming data even with the large number of relatives using the system during Thanksgiving.

Perfect, 2014-01-01
By Rich 
I love the new Time Capsule. Had a 3rd generation and this one by far exceeds expectations. So easy to set up. Took all the info from my 3rd gen and automatically transferred them. No hassles. And it's twice the size, 2TB vs 1TB. Picks up all my external devices even my security cameras.
