Creator: Glenn Fleishman | Computers - 2011-08-25

"If anyone knows about real-world Wi-Fi, it's Glenn Fleishman." —Mark Frauenfelder, co-founder of bOING bOING

Publisher: TidBITS

About this book
If you're trying to solve a particular problem, you can jump in and read the topics in this ebook in any order, but if you start at the beginning, you'll learn how Apple's 802.11n gear fits into the world of Wi-Fi networking. With that background, you'll learn where to position and how to set up base stations, with diagrams showing common network scenarios—see two examples above—and with step-by-step instructions for configuring key Internet sharing and security options and connecting client computers. For those who have funky Internet connections or tricky IP addressing needs, Glenn provides extended advice for creating a working Wi-Fi network. Glenn provides real-world steps, detailed advice, and tips for important scenarios, including: AirDrop: Finding out whether Lion’s AirDrop file-transfer feature will work with your Mac’s Wi-Fi hardwareUSB-attached printer: Setting up a USB-based printer on your Wi-Fi network, and connecting to the printer from Mac and Windows computersUSB-attached drive: Adding and configuring a USB-attached drive to a Time Capsule or AirPort Extreme, with important information about how best to configure client accessTime Capsule: Setting up a Time Machine backup to a Time Capsule, plus making an archive so you can have an offsite backup of your Time Capsule drive, and how to erase the driveApple TV: Connecting a 2nd-generation Apple TV to your networkAirPort Express: Streaming music to an AirPort Express and connecting it to your stereoGuest network: Creating a separate guest network to give guests Internet access while restricting local resourcesSecurity: Understanding oft-suggested security approaches that don't work well and implementing measures that are reliable—and easy to useMultiple base stations: Configuring multi-base-station networks, whether connected via Ethernet, wirelessly, or a combination To make your network fly, Glenn helps you: Make appropriate band and channel choicesExtend your network's coverage while handling any interferencePrevent older clients from bogging you down If you're trying to solve a problem, you'll find a "Quick Troubleshooting Guide" chapter as well as a rundown of how to interpret what the green, amber, blue, or red light on your base station is trying to tell you (we're aware of at least 11 possibilities!). The ebook also explains several ways to find a MAC address, how to handle bridging, how to set up a software base station and an ad hoc network, and what might be coming in the future with IPv6.

    Great Shared Storage Drive For Mac & PC, Improved Internet Speed

    In my household we have a MacBook Air, 2 PC's, 2 iPhones, and an iPad. For a long time I've wanted a shared storage drive that would always be on so all my computers and iOS devices could access it wirelessly at any time. The new Apple Time Capsule has finally given me that. In addition, the wireless internet speed of my network is 50% faster.NETWORK SET UPSetting up the Time Capsule for the internet was extremely easy. My iPad immediately recognized the Time Capsule after I connected it to the modem and plugged it in. On the iPad I created the network name and password. I also created a guest network name and password. The Time Capsule updated this and I was up and running. From pulling it out of the box to surfing the internet was less than 5 minutes.INTERNET SPEED TESTAfter I connected all my computers and iOS devices to the new network I did a speed test with the app Speedtest.net on my iPhone.

    I bought this with my new ARRIS SB6183 cable modem and I am so happy with my purchase.

    Worked as expected and did not mess up my network

    5/5 Richard Hanson (California, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Apple Time Capsule 3TB ME182LL/A [NEWEST VERSION] (Personal Computers) Worked as expected and is still working. It arrived with bridge-mode on (i.e., network hub/wi-fi turned off) which is good. Over five ago I bought a much older model which immediately become a hub and fought with my other hub for control of my network devices. Took me a while before I understood what was going on. I bought this one because the other one's hard drive, I think, is getting flaky (having to turn it off and back on to get it to connect).

    Not a Good Solution: HW, SW or Service

    Don't be fooled this is the exact same device as their "version 1" in both hardware and software. It is not a good solution:Hardware is weak: USB 2.0, 100M ethernet. Requires your own harddrive.Software is awful: 1) It relies on UPnP on your firewall which is not secure. 2) No published security plan or security validation 3) Has to duplicate and cache content before syncing it, so if you have less than 200% free space relative to the content on your device (phone or PC) that you mean to sync you are out of luck. 4) Bogs way down if you sync any large amount of data. 5) RENDERS YOUR DRIVE CONTENTS UNREADABLE WITHOUT A LIMA. That's right, once you take your perfectly portable file content and run it through a Lima, you cannot access it ever again without a Lima. Think Cryptolocker and you get the general picture.

    Conceptually, this device would be great. The benefits of a cloud knowing your data is private (and safe if you take the necessary precautions). However, it seems the software has a lot of refinement needed. First of all, unlike dropbox, onedrive, gdrive, etc., this doesn't sync to a folder on your existing C drive, rather, it creates a new drive altogether. This means you can't simply sync a folder within your Users account for seemless backup (though you can relocate certain key folders, if Lima would go offline, which it has, that would also create issues). Second, when you copy data to the Lima drive (L drive), it makes a local copy of it first in a cache folder on your C drive. Meaning you will quickly run out of storage space on your computer trying to sync info to an external hard drive!!! Makes no sense!

    The BEST All-In-One-Desktop... EVER... Just make sure you get the right configuration.

    To put it simply, the iMac with Retina 5K Display is nothing short of spectacular. At this moment, there is no computer in the world like it.First of all, look at the price. High quality 4K monitors can cost between $1000 and $2000 or more, just for the monitor. Apple reminds me of Spinal Tap... This one goes to 5K. 5K may not sound like much more than 4K, but the difference is actually an increase of over 67% more pixels. We're talking about a screen that can show a 14.7 Megapixel photo, without zooming. That's simply amazing.When I first saw the Apple event where they announced this, my first thought was, if they are jamming that many pixels into this, they are going to need a super fast graphics card, because playback and editing in 4K requires 4 times more bandwidth than 1080p, much less 5K. So, I was skeptical. I went to the Apple store and they had a lot of 4K footage loaded into Final Cut Pro X. I was able to skim around, make edits and playback... 5/5 Joe Crescenzi (Staten Island, NY USA) - See all my reviews, November 4, 2014

    The first value oriented device by Apple

    DISCLOSUREI bought this using my student discount so I did it via the Apple website instead. The student discount brought it to $2299.I BOUGHT IT BECAUSE IT'S RELATIVELY CHEAP? REALLY?The iMac 5k is probably the only "value" oriented device Apple makes. It's ironic because it's the most expensive iMac. Let's put it this way, the 5k screen itself is sold for $2.5k by Dell(not available until Dec). I don't know yet if it's the same panel as Dell but Dell have historically used the same panels as Apple before with the previous 1440p thunderbolt display.For a more mainstream comparison, the new LG 4k IPS monitor is a very good monitor. The price tag is $1399. However, I doubt it would have the same contrast and accurate color reproduction as this iMac. The reality is that any decent IPS 4k or 5k screen is going to cost you a fortune regardless of brand.What Apple essentially gave you is the first professional 5K screen and a free... 5/5 3D - See all my reviews This review is from: Apple iMac with Retina 5K display (OLDEST VERSION) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers) DISCLOSUREI bought this using my student discount so I did it via the Apple website instead.
