What does a blinking yellow light on my 2TB Time Capsule indicate? Seems as if my WiFi is still working.


Check out Tesserax's Answer on the Apple Support Communities.

      A persistent, flashing amber light indicates that any of the several potential conditions may require your attention:
  • The base station has not yet been configured because it is new, or the reset switch has been set.
  • You have selected a security configuration that is not recommended.
  • One of several other conditions, such as a disconnected Ethernet cable or invalid IP address has been detected. (ref: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305101)

    If you run the AirPort Utility, it will show an amber circle on the summary >page next to the area(s) causing the

problem. Click on this amber circle and it should provide an explanation.

  • Thank you Jake3231!. I resolved the issue by doing the following: (ran the Airport Utility, updated the firmware. Had to re-enter my Apple password for my Apple ID. Problem solved. Same procedure for my Airport Express. – Clay Wedan Mar 22 '18 at 20:58
