To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. A friend of mine offered me a 1st gen.
Time Capsule, mod. I did a research on the 'net, understand that the 1st gen don't have the guest network I don't care , works only at 2. Sure, the hard disk today is a little small, so I will replace it with something bigger - and newer -. Posted on May 29, AM. A Gen1 TC power supply if not already replaced will need it shortly..
To get them spinning faster perhaps they use a larger motor. What happened here in the thread I answered a few minutes before yours is what will happen also to yours if you buy it. I have had people bring a TC to me which they had upgraded the hard drive on. And it resulted in exactly this effect.
Set Your Apple Time Capsule As A Primary Base Station
The TC light is on solid amber but refuses to complete boot. An external power supply replacement got it going fine. The wireless is dual band but not simultaneous..
Do you have a question about the Apple Time Capsule?
It is a pity in some ways that later ones do not allow one band to be turned off. If you end up replacing both hard disk and power supply..
Think very carefully how much to pay for it. I measured the new ones at 50Mbps but you seldom get over 30Mbps on the Gen1 or Gen2.
They are processor bound.. What a 1st generation TC can do, is have the hard disk removed, and the power supply replaced with a simple 5v 3A supply and you have a nice Airport Extreme..
Apple Time Capsule Model A1254 Repair
That will be just as fast for wireless backup from laptops as the modern ones where wireless is the rate determining step. Except that 5ghz very close in the new ones, is mbps, but that is seldom usable.

May 29, PM. Better than encyclopedia Thank you very very much for your answer, sure you're a "tc Master". I've learned a lot, also reading your site.
Actually, I live in Italy, and price is a little higher here, but I got the message; will make a fair offer for the TC, following your advice. May 31, PM. Communities Contact Support.
