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

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?

OS X :: What Is The Best VPN To Get Around The Chinese Firewall
I live in China, its great, but I hate the firewall. Ever since they blocked Youtube, I've been trying to get a good connection to a proxy server. I still have not found a good enough proxy to watch youtube. So I am looking for a paid VPN, but I don't know what would be the best to go for. Since my connection in China is bad enough I need a VPN that doesn't slow down my connection any more.

OS X Leopard :: Firewall On Router - IChat Services Not Allowed
I'm new to Apple and love the machine, but I am having a problem with the firewall on my router. Let me explain the setup, then the problem. I have the following in my home network:
1 hp desktop running Windows XP Media Center Edition, SP3 (Professional)
1 Belkin wired / wireless router
1 Canon Pixma MP500 Printer set for Sharing (Connected to hp desktop through USB)
1 iMac 20" running Leopard OS

The hp desktop and the iMac are both hardwired to the router. The router's security settings are as follows:
Will Not broadcast the SSID
Mac Filtering is Enabled
WPA-PSK Security Enabled
Wireless connectivity is Enabled(For WiFi, PSP, and Xbox 360)

Everything on the network works beautifully, except the iMac. It will not allow iChat services, will not allow sharing of the desktop with other iChat members. It does, however, connect to the internet, but will not access the hp shared folders or printer. When I attempt to even add the printer, the printer does not even show up. I do have Bonjour installed on the hp, but when I run Bonjour, I get a message that reads something like, "There are no Bonjour enabled printers available."I know it is the firewall built into the Belkin router because I placed the iMac into the Demilitarized Zone, and everything started working as expected.

For those of you not familiar with DMZ on the router, it basically allows you to pick an IP address to place outside of the firewall, so you can keep the router firewall enabled, but you can choose an IP address (i.e., a computer) that is not behind the firewall. After placing the iMac in the DMZ, I went to add the shared printer on iMac. Not only did it show up immediately and give me the ability to add it and print to it, but I could also browse shared folders on my hp. I was also able to connect to a friend on iChat, and we were able to share each other's desktops.

OS X Leopard :: Firewall Blocks The Wifi Connection Of My Canon MP620?
I've had my Canon PIXMA MP620 set up wirelessly to my MacBook Pro for months now, and just today it turned out that it stopped working. After lengthy search for the cause of the problem, I discovered that my MacBook's internal firewall started blocking the connection to the printer. If I change it to 'allow all incoming connections', it works, but obviously I don't want to keep it that way. The other option is to 'set access for specific services and applications' and add the required utilities to be able to print, but that means that now every time another application needs an access, I have to click on the pop up window to allow it, which is very annoying.

I've tried everything to fix this problem and let firewall to be set to 'allow only essential services' and still let my printer work as before, but nothing works. I updated printer's drivers and software, changed firewall settings a million times, reinstalled the printer again and again.

Recently, I downloaded the EFI Firmware and SuperDrive updates (which, by the way, don't work correctly). I wonder, if this whole firewall/printer problem has something to do with it. It's just so irritating when everything works very smoothly and suddenly it stops, because of some stupid updates that destroy your settings and preferences.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: VPN Network Access - Mac Pro Run As Router
Mac Pro running 10.5. server. Cable modem goes into ethernet port #1, ethernet #2 goes into a simple switch. So the mac pro runs as a router. It gives out .100 to .199 ip addresses through DHCP. Then it gives out .200 to .249 ip addresses through VPN. So when you connect to the server via VPN from out in the world, you get full access to the server (.1). But any time you try to connect to any other device on the network via IP, it times out. VPN to the server alone is still pretty useful, but isn't the whole point to get access to the whole network?

OS X :: Too Many Wifi Devices Cause Router To Go Unstable?
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?
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
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 Leopard :: Connecting Macs To LiveBox (WiFi Router)
I'm trying to connect my MBP to an Livebox in a bar near me. Mine won't connect and we can't get another customer's Air to connect either. All PCs are connecting fine. I've looked at the settings of the LiveBox (Wifi router) and it is set up as you might expect. No Wifi password, no MAC address filtering. It's IP address is the expected, DHCP is switched on and a range of to 50 available. Subnet is

When I try to connect my Mac believes it is connected but the router has given it an IP address outside of the above range - - with a Subnet Mask of there is NO address for the router and I can't get any traffic to pass (email, Skype, Web). When I ran the Internet Diagnostic tool it says the wifi network requires a password - but I know from looking at its configuration it doesn't - and all the connected PC users prove this. I've tried to type in addresses manually (taking but that doesn't work either. My iPhone has the same problem: it sees the network, it connects to it but no traffic passes.

I have deleted my network profile and created a new one. I have deleted my system configuration library preferences. I have reset my pram. I made sure I have all the patches.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To WiFi If Not Near Router
I have a year old 2.26 GHz MBP and never had any complaints. However over the past few weeks I have noticed that the wi-fi performance has become really bad. Even if I step out with my MBP a few feet away, either the speed gets dropped considerably or I get a connection time out and I can't connect. I have a 4 old white Macbook and it works fine in the same setup and distance. I have also got my router replaced twice thinking it was initially a problem with the connection. But now I think there is an issue with my MBP. I have already formatted my drive, done a clean install, fixed permission, rest pram etc. Do you think Apple will replace the Ethernet card?

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

Snow Leopard :: No WiFi Signal After Shut Down Or If Power Goes Out To Router
Since install of SL if the power goes out and when it comes back on my mac book will not connect to the router thru WiFi no matter what I do. It shows the router name and all is correct and when I click on router name and it just says "Connection timed out' it is the only network in the area. This also happens when I shut down my mac book pro normal and restart it will not connect the same way. The odd thing is the only thing I can do is I have a super duper copy of leopard 10.5 on an external.

So boot to it and it picks the signal up no problem. I then shut down and restart SL 10.6.1 and it gets the signal no problem. I always have to basically kick start it fro 10.5 and then go into SL for my WiFi to connect. I tied an ethernet cable and it works fine, no problems. Does anyone know what the problem might be that I cant get the signal, I have tried all possible solutions posted in this forum and nothing seems to work except to kick start it evertime off of 10.5.

IMac Intel :: Adding Wireless Speakers Via WiFi Router

MacBook Pro :: Wifi Dropping At Distance After Time, Regardless Of Router
it works fine on a new router or a router with new settings for a while, and then the transfer rate drops to nil, even though the airport gives me full bars. It also became very sensitive to distance. Once rates drops, if I go within 3 meters of the router, it picks up again and everything works fine. If I move away, it dies off again.

I tried everything: Changing SSID, changing type of security, changing router, changing channel and whatnot. Nothing seemed to help the situation.

MacBook Pro :: Had To Restart Router Every Time To Connect To Wifi
Just got a new Mac Book Pro which had a wifi connectivity problem from day 1. Every time the computer went standby or restarted, the airport connection was lost. When I run network diagnostics, I was asked to restart networking device. If I unplug and plug router power cord, the computer would detect the network change and connect properly, but then next time I have to do it all over again. Apple support told me to delete some network preference files and it didn't work. I use a d-link router that has the latest firmware and works fine with all other computers/ipad/iphones etc.

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

MacBook Air :: Restart Wifi Router Every Time Turn?
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 Tiger :: What Is Strongest Quality Wifi Router With Maximum Range Signal
I am looking for the most powerful wifi router I can find for an outdoor setup (in Costa Rica) - under $100 if possible. We have to cover at least 300 feet with a strong signal. The wifi will be connected to a 100 feet ethernet cable that goes to the modem in another building. Last year we had a Netgear wifi and for a short period and Apple Airport Extreme, but they were very marginal with the distance.

I will be connecting with my PowerBook G4 which has an apple airport extreme card (Wireless Card Firmware Version: 405.1 ( Hopefully I won't need to have any additional adapters, but if so, why my airport wouldn't be enough, and which adapter would be best to provide a good signal to the router.

What is the insider's knowledge about which wifi routers are known to have the output power to cover the distance?
