Short: Ever since I reconfigured my netgear router, I haven't been able to log in wirelessly from Win7/Airport to a time capsule (TC) that is cabled into my netgear router. I think the problem is that I had previously, years ago, configured the TC to have an fixed IP, and now (after giving the netgear a new IP during reconfig) that IP is out of range.
On launch, Airport find the TC and shows it to have the old IP. When I click manual setup, the error message -6753 "An error occurred while trying to access the Apple wireless device. Make sure your network connection is valid and try again."
How can I login to the TC short of resetting the TC to factory? (and lose its config).
Long: I have a time capsule (TC) plugged into my main router (netgear). I use it as a wifi router and administrate the TC wirelessly under Win7 using the AirPort Utility. I have the TC configured to only accept connections from a list of MACs.
I can no longer login into the time capsule from Win7.
This started after I changed the IP address of the netgear router. That caused me to lose all my router settings. It's reconfigured now.
There are a couple odd things. The TC is handling its wifi connected devices (printers etc) properly. The netgear router is showing them as connected devices, and I can print from a Win7 machine through the TC to a wifi printer.
Yet the netgear router does not show the TC as being connected. And I cannot log in to the TC wirelessly using AirPort.
I think the problem is that I configured the TC to have an fixed IP, and now (after the netgear reconfig) that IP is out of range.
