How to Connect Time Capsule to a Mac With an Ethernet Cable


The Apple Time Capsule combines the functions of a network storage device and wireless router into a single device. The Time Capsule provides backup space for any computers on your network, and creates a wireless network in your home or office using your broadband Internet connection. Connect your Mac to one of the networking ports on the Time Capsule device to surf the Internet through a wired connection or to back up files to the device.

Things You'll Need

  • Ethernet cable
  • Insert one side of the Ethernet cable into an open networking port on the rear of the Time Capsule device until the cable clicks in place.

  • Find the Ethernet port on your Mac. On Mac laptops, the port is usually found on the left side of the body. On Mac desktops, the port is usually found on the rear of the tower.

  • Plug the opposite side of the Ethernet cable into the port on your Mac to establish a connection to the Time Capsule device.
