Applications :: VPN Software Witopia--bypass Wifi Router Firewall?

Feb 19, 2010

I live and work in Mainland China. There are a lot of sites I'd like to visit that I'm unable to do so because they're blocked. I'm a bit paranoid about internet security, especially here. I always connect behind a strict firewall on my wifi router (D-Link DIR-655) with SPI and NAT in addition I have the firewall on Snow Leopard set the strictest---to block all incoming connections. What I'm concerned about, is the VPN software of Witopia bypassing that firewall in my router. Will this happen? Does anyone know about the fine details of Witopia's VPN software and what it's doing, how it's connecting, etc?

MacBook :: Can't Access Router With WiFi?

I just bought my new MacBook. Got it all set up, wifi works like a charm. But one problem is I cannot access my router (Using 192.168.1.1) like I can on my other computers. I'm trying to get my MacBook and my desktop running Ubuntu networked together, but I can't, and I believe this is the root of the problem.

OS X :: Too Many Wifi Devices Cause Router To Go Unstable?

Jun 11, 2009

My wi-fi signal keeps failing in the house, but the fixed connection is stable. This might well be a stoopid question, but can too many wi-fi devices cause a router to go unstable? In the house we have four macs, two iPhones and three airport expresses. The router is the standard one that comes with O2 broadband in the UK and has been pretty reliable until the last couple of weeks

MacBook Pro :: Self Assigned IP - Wifi For One Router Has The Same IP?

Feb 8, 2012

I have a 13 inch macbook pro running lion, and I sublet a basement of a house as im currently in university. About 2 weeks ago, my internet said it has a self assigned IP. My brother, who lives with me, also has a macbook pro, bought a year later, and also running lion. His internet works fine, which i find odd as i thought wifi for one router has the same IP. I tried all the suggestions, such as deleting wifi from my network preferences, deleting the airport.plist file in the library, and restarting my computer.

Macbook Air Will Not Recognise Wifi Router

Apr 13, 2012

why my Macbook Air will not recognise my wifi router when my MAcBook Pro and Iphone do immediately. I have switched airport on and off on my Macbook air repeatedly and it will not pick up the wifi that my Pro and Iphone immediately recognise and connect to. After 20 minutes or so of switching airport on and off, it found the router and I successfully connected. After use, I powered down the MAcbook air and crossed fingers that having connected once it would recognise the router again unfortunately not another frustrating 20 minutes of trying despite my other apple devices remaining connected.

OS X :: Mac Mini Server Can Also Serves As A Wifi Router?

Jun 7, 2010

I just bought a snow leopard mac mini server, everything came as a bundle pretty nice. The snow leopard server software preinstalled on the mac mini too. Only thing I'm not sure about is does this also act as a wifi router? In the back of the box it says "airport extreme wireless networking included", I assumed this means that this can act as a wifi router like an aiport extreme? Is this true?

MacBook Pro :: Not Catching WiFi Signals From Router

Jun 19, 2012

I have a 2011 Mac book Pro with OS x 10.7.1 running on it. Till about a month back it stopped catching wifi signal from my router, and then sometimes it will catch signal from only near the router. I thought that it might only be an issue with my home router. Now in the new city my MBP can't detect any of the wifi networks even in my home or in the office.

MacBook Air :: Restart Wifi Router Every Time Turn?

Feb 21, 2012

Every time I switch on my Macbook Air, or wake it up from sleep, I lose my wifi connection. If I restart my wifi router, the signal comes back, but once my Macbook Air goes to sleep, I always need to erstart my wifi router again. This is the process I go through several times each day: 

(Wifi router is on.)

1. Turn on Macbook Air. It recognises my wifi network but has no internet connection.

2. Restart my wifi router.

3. After a few minutes, I get an internet connection on my Macbook Air. 

Previous laptops and desktops have not had this problem. Do I need to change any settings in my Macbook Air? I'd be grateful for any help. 

I have a 2010 Macbook Air (bought second hand) running OS 10.6.8. I am using a D-link wifi router.

OS X :: Unable To Connect To Netgear Wifi Router / Update Not Working?

Apr 13, 2009

It took me a lOOONG time but I finally bit the bullet and bought a macbook. So far so good, I will be giving it a memory upgrade in a few weeks but right now I could use some serious help.

The computer won't connect to my Netgear WGR614 wifi router. I called Apple, they said the airport works and I may need a router firmware update. I updated the Netgear router. I have tried using the WEP, the WPA and also tried with the router set to zero security. The macbook still won't connect. Here is the kicker, my old windows based laptop and my wifes newer netbook picked up the new upgrade without issue.

The macbook (I loaded all the macbook updates with hardwire) will go through the network diagnostics and end up being unable solve the problem.

Hardware :: Finding A WiFi Router That Works With Cellular Aircards

Apr 29, 2010

I have a Sierra Wireless 881U USB Aircard that I use with AT&T's 5GB/month data plan. It works well now since I just use it on a couple laptops I have but now that I'm buying an iPad I want to avoid an extra $30/month for data and just share the data plan with it. Since the iPad doesn't have USB that means I'll need a solution to use Wi-Fi on it.

I came across the Cradlepoint PHS-300. It's nice since it has an internal battery or can plug in and is fairly small and I simply plug in my aircard to make a local wi-fi access point that I can use on the go with either my laptop or iPad.

My question: Are there other options on the market? Cradlepoint makes some others but they don't have a battery. I want one with the most battery life for the smallest sizes and have been unable to find any from Linksys but are there other items like this on the market?

Also, another question. I'm happy with AT&T's data plan but my contract is up shortly. Does anyone have opinions of Verizon or Spring or even T-Mobile? I don't know much about T-Mobile and it seems like Verizon's plan is similar and even Sprint's current 3G plan is similar. it seems once 4G is available in an area though for the same price of $59.95/month you get unlimited data. that sounds too good to be true and is it really true and is the service and speed good?

Hardware :: Maximizing Speed And Reliability Using A Time Capsule & Another Wifi Router?

Mar 1, 2010

I currently have a Belkin wireless-N router (the cheapest one I could find, regrettably) so that I can have wifi in my dorm room, but this router isn't cutting it anymore. I've given the password to a couple of my friends, but their favorite things to do while on my network are Skype, Hulu, and ESPN streaming--leaving me with an unreliable, slow wireless connection.To help with this problem, I want to buy a Time Capsule--I'm really looking forward to using its wireless backup and printer sharing features. My first question is, though, will a Time Capsule be able to handle multiple bandwidth-hogging wireless connections faster and more reliably than my cheapo Belkin router, or will it also choke? (I know for a fact that the problem isn't my university's network, because I get blazing fast download and upload speeds via Ethernet.)

MacBook Pro :: Dual Band Wifi - Connect To Belkin Double N + Router?

May 11, 2010

So I'm trying to connect my MBP to my new Belkin Double N+ (F6D6230uk4) router. I have 2.4 ghz set to b/g and 5 ghz set to n and 20/40hz bandwidth. Last night, when I connected to the router for the first time, I was showing 300mbps, when you Options+click the Airport icon. However, now I'm only showing 145mbps. To be fair, I may have changed a few settings between now and then, but I have no idea how I was able to get 300mbps before. It's as though it's only connecting to one channel, instead of two, which is required for 300mpbs I think?

OS X :: Using Firewall / Allow Specific Services And Applications

Jul 28, 2009

I have my firewall set to "allow specific services and applications."

I noticed today that DashboardClient, System Preferences, and a program called "ScreenSaverEngine." Are all set to allow..

Typically i'd just want itunes so I can use simplify media, and safari/firefox because i think it has to be enabled.

What are the parameters for allowing a program incoming access in general - i seem to get asked it now that I have this option checked and wanted to make sure? I find it odd that i have some system utilities on my list set to allow - is it just me?
