Updating time capsule
If you’re made of money, you could opt to fork over 9 for a taste of Apple’s new wireless backup hotness, or with a little hard work, you can upgrade your existing Time Capsule with a brand new high-speed 3TB drive for less than half that price. Disconnect your Time Capsule’s power cord and any ethernet cables you’ve attached to it.
Does your the device still feel kind of warm to the touch? Normally, it’s best to wait until a piece of hardware cools down before tinkering with it, but not in this case.
Offering its users an all-in-one wireless internet gateway and impeccable storage and backup solution, it’s a peripheral device that simply oozes win.
For those of us that bought our Time Capsules back in 2008, however, it’s also a device that’s beginning to get a little long in the tooth, especially in the face of the stellar 2TB and 3TB storage update Cupertino gave it this past June.
I have a friend who enjoys doing a movie night once a month in the summer & uses the same set-up to stream movies from their Apple TV to their projector in the driveway on to the garage. All the kids in the neighborhood and families get together for an old fashion block-party of sorts in drive-in movie style. You can join a network but this will not increase the range of your wireless network.
Once the device has cooled off, remove the 11 screws that attach the metal base plate to the rest of the Time Capsule.
Gently lift the metal base plate out of the Time Capsule’s plastic shell, but be careful: the device’s fan is attached to the inside of the base plate. Carefully detach the fan’s power cable from the main board. The Time Capsule’s hard drive has a temperature sensor attached to it with a retaining clip.
To locate it, carefully peel off the the piece of foam that protects it.
If that's the case it be done, without any extra purchases.
Certainly without any addition of a wireless jack extension, which no offense to the individual recommending it, but would be a really silly option in this scenario.In any case Wi Fi extension is generally flaky and to be avoided.
