I tested the Time Capsule by mounting the shared disk on my Macbook Pro 8,1 and copying files of ~1.3 GB in the Terminal using a simple cp. I was about 10 meter away from the Time Capsule on the same floor with 1 thin wall in between. There are about 6 other wireless networks detectable in the neighbourhood.

The default settings I used are:

  • Bands: 2.4GHz and 5GHz enabled,
  • Security: WPA2,
  • 2.4/5 GHz channel: automatic,
  • Radio mode: 802.11a/n - 802.11b/g/n (automatic)


In other news: Airport Utility 6 is heavily neutered but fortunately version 5.6 is still available,
