Time Capsule

You should check out Apple's Time Capsule.

What is it? It's a server, wireless router, network coordinator, print hub, background wireless back-up machine and more.

What does it do?

Automatic backup with Time Machine.

Time Capsule works automatically with Time Machine in Mac OS X Leopard to create the perfect no-hassle backup solution. There are no cables, and you can back up all the computers in your home to a central location.

Storage icon
Server-grade storage.

The massive 500GB or 1TB server-grade hard drive gives you all the capacity and safety you need for backing up all your Mac computers.


Networking icon
Easy wireless networking.

Connect your DSL or cable modem to Time Capsule, then quickly set it up with the easy-to-use AirPort Utility, which is included for both Mac OS X and Windows. Within minutes, you and up to 50 others can use your Mac computers or PCs to surf the web, stream video, share photos, and more — without wires.


Dual Band icon
Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi.
NEW

For maximum range and compatibility, Time Capsule works simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, allowing all the devices on the network to use the most efficient band automatically. And Time Capsule uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology so you can enjoy up to five times the performance and up to twice the range of 802.11g wireless networks.


Guest Networking icon
Guest networking.
NEW

Now you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for your visitors. Simply enable the new guest networking feature, and your guests can use the Internet but can’t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers, and attached hard drives.


Drive Sharing icon
Wireless drive sharing.

Time Capsule also works great as a wireless hard drive, whether you have a Mac or a PC. It sets up in a snap, giving you a networked hard drive you can use for storing and sharing all kinds of files. If you're a MobileMe member using a Mac with Mac OS X Leopard, you can even access the files on the drive over the Internet.


Printer icon
Print without wires.

Print documents, photos, and more from any room in your home or office to a central printer connected to Time Capsule via USB. (See system requirements.)


Security icon
Strong security and access controls.

Protect yourself with the built-in firewall and industry-standard encryption technologies including WPA/WPA2 and 128-bit WEP.


AppleTV, iPhone, iPod touch icon
Works with iPhone, Apple TV and more.

Time Capsule works with Mac computers, PCs, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple TV, and virtually all 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless devices — all at the same time.
