Applications :: Airtunes Network Connection Keeps On Failing?

When connecting to my airtunes speakers I get:

"An error occurred while connecting to the remote speaker "xxxxxx". The network connection failed."

I tried reconfiguring the airport express multiple times but it consistently does this. How do i begin diagnosing it?

Is there firmware to update?

OS X :: Downloads Failing From Dropped Connection?

Sep 9, 2010

I have a Mac Mini, it is hooked to a D-link router with a 50ft ethernet cable. I have never had problems in the past using my MacBook over wifi, but it seems like I am constantly losing my Internet connection on the Mac Mini. I have no problems when I am on it, but if I leave a download going, then come back, it seems to almost always pause or cancel the download. It has happened downloading songs from Napster through Safari, it happens in iTunes, and in Software Update.

OSX should not go to sleep if it's downloading a file, right? I even installed Caffeine to make sure it stays awake. Any ideas on what the issue might be? Or what I should try to do to figure it out?

Applications :: VPN Connection Using Mac OS X's Built In Network Preferences?

Nov 11, 2008

For school, I need to set up a VPN connection to be able to connect my MacBook to the internet. While my school offers the Cisco VPN Client with a preconfigured PCF settings file, I would much rather use Mac OS X's built-in VPN capabilities, through the Network Preferences. Now, my problem is that I don't really know what to do to get this working. Using an online password decoder, I already found out what the password for my school's VPN connection is. But how do all the settings translate between the Cisco VPN Client and Mac OS X's VPN configuration screen?

The PCF file tells the Cisco VPN Client to use Group Authentication, with a group name and a group password (the one I already decrypted). These are already filled in. When starting a connection, I am then asked to fill in my student login details. Now, in the VPN settings screen in System Preferences, there is a box for Account Name. Am I right in thinking this is the box where I fill in my student ID? Or does the group name go here? Then, when I click Authentication Settings..., I can fill in a password. I assume this is where my student password goes? Or should I fill in the password I decrypted?.................

Applications :: Unable To Login Msn / No Network Connection

Jul 30, 2010

I bought a new iMac 24" about a month ago. It runs Mac OS X Snow Leopard (all up to date). So I used Microsoft Messenger for Mac from the first day I bought it. Yesterday I installed Adium. So everything went well yesterday. When I went to sleep, I closed all apps from the background (Command + Q),And put the iMac on sleep.

Today I tried to use Adium and it won't log-in. It says sometimes "Retreiving buddy list" or some problems with the network (of the MSN). I tried to used Microsoft Messenger for Mac and it says something like "Service not responding or no network connection"..I HAVE FULL NETWORK CONNECTION (Plug-in straight to the router) I tried already reinstall everything, reset the router, reset the computer, Changing the port of Adium to 80 (I brought it back to default later)..I also installed OniX and clean the data with it, it still have this problem. I've done everything I can to solve it, but I still can't figure it out.

Applications :: ITunes Store Network Connection Error

Sep 4, 2010

Over the last couple of months, I sometimes get an error when using the iTunes Store: "We could not complete your iTunes Store request. The network connection was reset. Make sure your network connection is active and try again." It seems happen at random. I click to download an app and I get the message. I click again and it works. Sometimes I'm browsing the store and everything's fine, then I start getting the message over and over for a while.

I tried rebuilding my home network, updating airport software, everything I could think of on my end. Is this a problem on Apple's servers? Do a lot of other people have this problem? I haven't had much luck finding answers on this site or searching Google. I use an Airport Extreme, I have Time Warner Cable internet. I have no other internet connection issues.

"We could not complete your iTunes store request. A secure network connection could not be established. Check that your computer's date and time are correct and try again."

I made sure my time and date are correct and such. I even did it on my iPhone and it gives me the same error. Anyone have a previous solution to this?

Applications :: Network Monitoring Software For Wireless Internet Connection?

Apr 29, 2005

At home I have about four laptops and one desktop computers. All of them use a wireless connection to connect to the internet. Sometimes, one of my siblings is downloading something huge or is downloading torrents or what not and it cripples the speed for the rest of us.

I also can't see if someone has managed to crack my WEP password and is using my connection (a neighbor or someone). Is there freeware that tells me who is connected to my network and how much traffic or data they are using?

MacBook Pro :: "Network Connection The Communication Device Selected For Your Connection Does Not Exist?

Mar 16, 2012

The internal modem in my PowerBook Pro (mid 2010) shows up as "not connected" in the Network pane of system preferences, but I can't figure out how to get it to connect. When I enter my phone number and click the connect button, I get an error message: "Network Connection The communication device selected for your connection does not exist. Verify your settings and try reconnecting." Say what? It says it exists in the System Preferences, shows it in the list on the left. How can it not exist?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Force System To Use Second Connection Of Network Connection List For Internet Access?

Jul 5, 2012

I have a MacPro Early 2009, 2 ethernet ports.Ethernet 1 is connected to the LAN and Ethernet 2 is connected directly to a SSL Matrix console (an audio mixer), whom driver needs the used ethernet port to be first of the list in the Network connections list in System Preferences.So when I browse internet I can't use the Matrix's software, and vice versa.I had to create 2 different network positions to browse internet and to work with SSL Matrix, one with Eth 1 first place, another one with Eth 2 first place, and I always have to swap positions.Is there a way to force OSX to use by default the 2nd connection of the list for internet access?

MacBook :: Unable To Share Network Connection / Connected Via Ad-hoc Network?

Dec 31, 2010

I have Alltel Mobile Broadband. Up until the other day, it's been working fine. I'd set up a network on my macbook after connecting to the Alltel network, then I'd enable internet sharing. Then my iPod Touch, iPad, etc would all be able to go online.

The past couple days, however, the connection just won't share.Anyone have any idea what could be doing this and how to fix it?

OS X :: Ad Hoc Network Wiped Out Regular Network Connection?

Jan 7, 2011

I've searched and don't see anybody else with this problem. I tried to set up an ad hoc network on my MBP so I could use TouchAble with my new iPad. But now I can't get my MBP (or iPad) to see my home wifi network.

(TouchAble is a music performance app on the iPad that controls Ableton Live on the MBP. It works on an ad hoc network so the combo will work on gigs without depending on local wifi.)

I set up a new network ok, with a password. The iPad saw it, but before I tested it further I wanted to make sure I could reinstate my regular network. So I tried switching back to the regular wifi. No dice! The MBP sees the network, but I can't log in. It acts like the password is wrong. Same on the iPad.

Yes, the network works. I didn't make changes to the settings in my router, and my iPhone still sees it with the same password.

I tried a tip I found online and deleted the network preferences file ( and rebooting. No dice. (The system didn't write a new one, as I had expected; I had to reinstate it from the Trash). I rebooted a few times, both MBP and iPad. Nope.

What's going on here? 1) How can I get my MBP to see my network, so I can switch back and forth from the ad hoc to the local network. 2) Ditto for the iPad.

MBP is new. All systems and versions are up to date. No other funny stuff with the network--it's been stable for two years. Everything is stand-alone; this is in my home office. I'm the admin. (But I'm not a techie, so if you start talking about IP addresses and subnet masks, please be clear what I should try.)

Applications :: ITunes (via AirTunes) - Crackling Since 10.5.3

Jun 5, 2008

I guess for the past few weeks, I wanna say since 10.5.3, the music I play through Airtunes has sounded crumby. Some distortion and crackling. I got a bit worried and thought it was maybe a HW issue, but tests and wavelengths turned out ok, and games/tv/movies had no issues. So I turned on Airfoil, to force all system sound through the AP Express and thus my sound system, and played songs back and forth, from iTunes and Airtines, to Quick Look/Quicktime and Airfoil. Lo and behold, Airtunes sounds nasty, Airfoil sounds perfectly fine.

Applications :: ITunes Not Find Airtunes When Connected Via Cable

May 23, 2010

I have an Apple TV with Airtunes enabled. But apparently, it's not possible to connect to it from PC's who are connected to LAN with cable instead of WiFi? Does anyone know why? More details, I have 3 PC's:

PC 1: , Windows 7 64-bit with iTunes (latest)
Stationary, connected to LAN using cable in a Gigabit switch

PC 2: 100% fresh install of Windows 7 32-bit and iTunes
Stationary, connected to LAN using cable in a Gigabit switch

PC 3: Win 7 32-bit with iTunes
Netbook - connected through WiFi

Apple TV device (latest firmware) is connected to same LAN using cable as well. All PC's can ping the Apple TV without problems. So the problem is that iTunes doesn't find the Airtunes device (the output dropdown selector doesn't show up). I first tried on my main PC (PC1). It didn't work, so I tested on PC2 (which is a fresh install of both OS and iTunes!), but same problem there. But then the weird thing happened. I tried to install on my netbook, and it worked!

Only difference is that the netbook was connected through WiFi. I don't see why that would matter, but just for fun i tested to disconnect WiFi, and connect with cable and boom - airtunes selection disappeared! As soon as I disconnected the cable and reconnected WiFi, it appeared again. Why on earth would Airtunes only work on WiFi? As you can see on the attached screenshot, network configuration is equal on WiFi and cabled connection.

Applications :: ITunes 8 Suspends Airtunes Transmissions During DLs At Full Speed

Sep 10, 2008

Gear & Settings: Airport Express 802.11g / Macbook 802.11g / WPA2 secured network, set to 802.11g only

I have this problem that is completely reproducible every time and I wanted to check whether anyone else can confirm it .

When I'm listening to music over airTunes while anything is being downloaded at ~700KB/s, fully utilizing the capacity of my internet connection, the music temporarily stops - the little scrubber thing actually continues to move, but no music can be heard. As soon as I pause the download, the music continues. It will also stop again when I resume the download.

I can't quite believe that the data throughput should be above what my wireless 802.11g network can handle. This also didn't seem to be a problem "pre-iTunes 8".

OS X :: Network At Home For Internet Connection

Sep 10, 2010

I am going to move into a new house soon. I am looking to network the house, so I can use the internet anywhere, share movies,etc. This is my current setup at my apartment.
1 x Mac Mini connected to my TV in the lounge
1 x Apple TV connected to the TV in the bedroom
1 x Main PC in the study room (which all my movies/tv series/music/etc... is stored)
2 x Laptops
1 x Apple 20" Cinema Display

The mac mini is connected via ethernet to the router & the apple tv is connected via WiFi. Its currently a small place so the apple tv can access the router's wireless signal. This is what I have in mind for our new house which kinda big in size. Trash the PC and buy a mac mini server and external NAS storage. The NAS storage will store all the movies/tv series/mp3's/etc. I currently have a ubiquity nanostation2 which I can setup to boost the wireless signal throughout the house so we can use wireless anywhere in the house & tv mac mini, laptops & apple tv can access the wireless (so i do not have to install ethernet cables throughout the house). Also in the future, I would want to install security cameras outside the house (still trying to find a good mac OS X security camera software). Before I buy the mac mini server & NAS, am i missing anything or is there another better solution?

OS X :: Connection Failed When Accessing MPB Over Network

Jan 30, 2008

I'm working on a friend's MPB and when ever I try to connect to it from mine (I created the network from my MPB which is almost identical to his), His MPB shows up in finder, but it always says "Connecting..." and then "Connection Failed". Sharing is enabled on his MPB and the firewall is disabled. I have been through everything that I can think of to try and fix this, short of re-installing Leopard. His MBP came with Leopard pre-installed, so there is no need to worry about the upgrade messing things up. I have checked from a MacBook and that one cannot connect either, but both connect to mine with no problems.

OS X :: Losing Wireless Network Connection

Jul 12, 2009

I am running into a headache with my wireless network connections. When I close my laptop to put it to sleep, I often lose my network connection. It is easy enough to reconnect; I simply try to connect to a web page, get network diagnostics, and re-enter my password (and click on the "remember password" box). All works great -- until I next close the laptop. It happens all the time at one site, sometimes at home (using Time Capsule), and seldom at the church where I volunteer.

I have checked all my settings and can't figure out what's going on. If my poor memory is correct, I didn't use to have this problem, but it has been going on for the last couple of months. I know I could keep the sucker open, but I want to save power by putting it to sleep -- and the desk where I work at home has a sliding drawer so it has to be closed to close the drawer. (And my network connections are all in the desk also.) I've posted this question to the Apple forum but haven't gotten any replies there other than a couple of followup questions. I am using Time Capsule as my router and I have updated the software

Windows On Mac :: Network Connection Not Working With Xp Sp3 On Mp

Aug 2, 2009

So I have a mac pro, sick machine, love it, and want to play some older games, such as half life 2 as the mac port glitces and sucks for me.

So here's my endeavors with Boot camp. Ran the partition and inserted my windows disk.... a note on that. I did not have a xp with SP2 or better so I made one using a program and "slipstreamed" SP3 into it.

I then installed xp. Had a problem thou. When it wanted to start windows for the first time it rebooted and then never went anywhere but a blank screen. I rebooted it manually and it dumped me into windows just fine. No sound, and many other drivers missing. It did not ask me for my Leopard disk like many said it would. So I inserted it and it installed all the missing drivers for me.

However, the network connection did not work. everything else save my numpad seems to work. I have no idea where to start. I have done everything I do on my PC Laptop set up to run fine within windows and the router. I even installed Bootcamp 2.1 as a post said it might be a problem there. IT did say it must be installed prior to SP3 but thats not really possible with my system due to it (SP3) installed with windows prior to reading about the 2.1. I need to connect so I can download files I need to run the games I wish to with this thing, otherwise I wouln't bother.
