I have the following home network setup with subnet but recently moved my time capsule to a different location when I added a third Home Plug and can no longer ping or map a network drive to it from the Windows 7 Machine. However using Airport Utility on the Windows 7 machine I can manually configure the Time Capsule.

Using a Macbook on WIFI Network 1 or 2 - I can backup to the time capsule, so its accessible via both the router wifi network and the time capsule wifi network.

The Time Capsule is set to BRIDGE function - ie no NAT or DHCP server enabled.

Any bright sparks out there that can help diagnose the problem?

    Router ( WIFI Network 1

       |---- Home Plug Two

       |---- Home Plug Three

What does "moved my time capsule to a different Location" mean? Where was it before? Did the Network topology Change? Another question: does the apple time capsule filter netbios traffic, is there an Option to configure that? – Werner Henze May 3 '13 at 9:55
