While it does this you will see the status light turn from being off, showing your Time Capsule was unplugged To amber, which means your Airport Time Capsule is booting up and configuring itself.

The new Time Capsule should be on the list of available Wifis and you can select it there.

You’ll notice from the picture above that the ‘Use a single password’ check box is ticked.

Once in Airport Utility your Mac will see the Airport Time Capsule broadcasting, booted up and set up with a default name. If for some reason you’re unable to see the Time Capsule in this screen, then you can instead click on your Wifi symbol at the top of your desktop.
Useful as that is you will need to set up Time Capsule for your own network Usually your cable provider provides you with the right cable or you can select and order one from Amazon.
It is important that you plug in all the cables ahead of plugging in the Airport Time Capsule’s power cable.
If you un-tick it you can assign a separate password to your network and another one for your Base station.
