Keys to setting up Apple Time Capsule airport extreme and allowing both PC and Mac to still see each other:
1. Best to use PC version of airport utility (Mac version may work with what I know now!)
2. Use dashes or underscores in naming conventions; safer bet
3. In airport utility/disks/file sharing tab, click Secure Shared Disks: with user accounts (these accounts will come in handy when trying to access the time machine)
4. Time machine IP address: 10.0.1.1
5. Macbook Pro (bill’s 6-2009 model) IP address: 10.0.1.3
6. I changed workgroup on both Mac and PC to “APPLEHOME”. When they were originally in same workgroup, I could not see them. When I had them in different workgroups, I could start to get login dialog boxes. Now they are both in the same workgroup and seem happy.
7. The biggest leap forward was when I added the Mac IP address to the WINS server field!!!!
8. I used several discussion groups, forums and apple support to get success.
