I took an old and outdated Apple 2TB AirPort Time Capsule and upcycled it today. I accomplished three things: 1. I extended a Verizon Fios wireless network to an upstairs area and outside (which was historically weak). 2. Enabled the TimeMachine backup as a SECOND wireless way to backup. 3. Wirelessly shared an old Brother […]
