It will depend on what network you need to change it from. Usually, what you have to do is temporarily connect a computer to it that is temporarily on the time.capsule network, then make the changes, then go back to your original configuration.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
