Features

Automatic backup with Time Machine.

Easy wireless networking.
Connect your DSL or cable modem to Time Capsule, then quickly set it up with the easy-to-use AirPort Utility, which is available as download for both Mac OS X and Windows. In minutes, you and up to 50 others can use your Mac computers or PCs to surf the web, stream video, share photos and more — without wires.

Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi.
For maximum range and compatibility, Time Capsule works simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, allowing all the devices on the network to use the most efficient band automatically. It uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology, so you can enjoy up to five times the Wi-Fi performance and up to twice the range of 802.11g wireless networks.

Guest networking.
Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for your visitors. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can use the Internet but can\'t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers and attached hard drives.

Wireless drive sharing.
Time Capsule also works great as a wireless hard drive, whether you have a Mac or a PC. It sets up in a snap, giving you a networked hard drive you can use for storing and sharing all kinds of files. If you’re a MobileMe member using a Mac with Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard, you can even access the files on the drive over the Internet.

Print without wires.
Print documents, photos and more from any room in your home or office to a central printer connected to Time Capsule via USB. (See system requirements.)

Strong security and access controls.
Protect yourself with the built-in firewall and industry-standard encryption technologies including WPA/WPA2 and 128-bit WEP.

Works with iPad, iPhone, Apple TV and more.
Time Capsule works with Mac computers, PCs, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple TV and virtually all 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless devices — all at the same time.
Three (3) Memeo Premium Backup software licenses for continuous data backups from PCs/Macs.

X-RAID2 technology: Change/add/remove hard drives at any time, even when the server is running, so you can expand storage capacity and automate RAID 0/1 configurations on the fly.

ReadyDLNA: Enable the ReadyNAS to act as a DLNA media server and stream media from your ReadyNAS to any DLNA players (i.e. Sony Playstation 3, XBox 360, and DLNA-enabled TVs).

TiVo Compatible: Save your favorite programs to your ReadyNAS for future playback. This feature is integrated with the ReadyDLNA software feature.

ReadyNAS Remote: Create a VPN-like connection without complicated network setup so remote users can access folders as though they were on the same local network with the server.

ReadyNAS Photos: Share your photos straight from the ReadyNAS without complicated router setup

Wake-on-LAN support: Lower power consumption by scheduling Wake on LAN commands to power on the system only when needed. This feature is also useful after a power outage.

iSCSI support: Allocate a certain capacity from your data volume to appear as a block device so that you can mount it and make it show up similar to a USB drive. This allows applications like iMovie and Outlook to work seamlessly with data residing on the ReadyNAS.

Skifta: Shift DLNA media from your ReadyNAS to a remote DLNA player (www.skifta.com/netgear)
