Applications :: That Lets Connect To Secure Wifi - Wireless Network?
May 14, 2010
I've heard of apps that let you connect to any wireless network wep/wpa whatever, without knowing the password, just lets you connect. I can't seem to find one though. Does anyone here know of such an app?
I've got a Netgear DG834G V3 router. I've just updated the firmware to the latest one on Netgear's site, which unveiled a whole host of new security settings. After a bit of research I opted for WPA2-PSK (WiFi Protected Access 2 with Pre-Shared Key). Is this the best thing to go for out of the below options:
I am reconfiguring my Time Capsule and see there are two options for securing my wireless network with a password. What is the difference between WPA/WPA2 Personal and WPA2 Personal. Is one more secure than the other? Why are there two options to choose from? These are two options in the drop down menu in Airport Utility.
my mother's MacBook Pro doesn't automatically connect to our home's wireless network. It's encrypted with WPA2. My MBP and my sister's MacBook stay connected fine. My mother's, however, requires her to click on the AirPort icon at the top and select our network each time she wakes it or boots it up. This only started happening when I put WPA2 on the network. How do I fix this?
Since about 2 days ago, my wifi on my Macbook air running 10.7.3 Lion does not connect to any wireless network, whether it's naked, WEP encrypted, or WP2 encrypted. It fails on 'Network Settings' Network Status step (Wi-fi and Wi-fi settings are 'green'). In fact, I can use my other Macbook running 10.7.2 Lion as well as my Android phone to connect to the wireless networks my Macbook air cannot connect to.
What I find really weird is I tried re-installing Lion on my Macbook air using the 'command-R' key on bootup. I was able to successfully connect to my WEP encrypted router during the re-install. But once it was done and re-booted I once again cannot connect to any wifi.
So something really funny is going on while OS-X is fully booted on my Macbook air.
This is pretty crummy situation to be in because the Macbook airs don't have a default ethernet jack built into it, so the computer is somewhat useless.
My MacBook, circa 2007, refuses to connect to my home WiFi network, despite having added my MAC address, being WPA encrypted, updated firmware and the like. I haven't had a problem in the last year, until I started taking my laptop to work. It connects to my work wifi network, WPA encryption, and every other network. I have no idea why it wont connect at home. I'm running snow leopard, other macs and PCs at home can connect... It seems I'm missing some odd quirk, I've seen a few threads of similar complaints, but no working resolution. Any ideas? I've wiped out Safari, cleaned all network settings, and it all started once my use shifted predominantly from home to work. Hmpf.
I can see my neighbors network but it doesn't even show my home network. Both iPhones are connected and working fine, our blu ray player is linked and getting good signal.... One day it just happened to not be there and it won't find it anymore. I have the Medialink n-router. I haven't changed any router settings...
My 27" iMac will not connect to my network via WiFi. I am running Mavericks. I have 2 other computers connecting via wifi, my ipad and phone both connect and my wife's ipad connects as well. My computer can see the network but it simply WILL NOT let me connect. I can connect via ethernat cable.
I Am using my phone to post this because my computer won't connect to the internet. I am at school and to access the internet you have to connect and then open a browser to accept terms. With my phone the login auto pops up when I connect and same with my iPad but my new MacBook Pro retina doesn't pop anything up and when I go to the browser and try to get the login page to show up all I he is network error. Wifi symbol shows and ! With an alert no internet connection. Tried running diagnostics and that did nothing. Restarted to no avail.
I have done everything contained in this link to make my Mac a wireless router. We are connected to the internet via ethernet.http://maketecheasier.com/create-wif...s-x/2009/10/20I just purchased a piece of crap Android tablet that I absolutely hate, but cannot return. I was able to wirelessly connect to a local linsky connection, but it has since disappeared. I am now making every attempt to enable the Airport on our Mac so that I can actually use this garbage Android tablet. The tablet I am using is a Next2 (garbage, don't waste your money).
Yesterday I got my new iMac 21,5'. After starting it up, the airport would not work. The open network (not password protected) was detected, but every attempt to connect to it ended with a "timed out" error message. I tried to deactivate and reactivate the airport a few times. With no luck. Both my iphone and a cheap netbook would get a valid connection in the meantime. So it's not a network issue.
It's a d-link router and it's about half a meter from the imac. My previous macbook with tiger worked perfectly with this connection. I tried to change the wireless channel from 7 to 6 and this did not solve the issue. Or at least not right away. I tried again after say 15 minutes, and it worked. However, tried again in the morning, and got the "timed out" error message one more time. I have installed the airport software update
I've done a little digging and cannot find an answer to this problem.I have a Macbook circa November 2008 and a Netgear WNR854T Router.I try to connect to my wireless network but my Macbook won't do it. It will list my network in the network list and will connect to other unsecured networks but not to mine. I use WPA2 security on the network.Alternatively, my Macbook Air, Mac Mini, iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii have no problems connecting.
I have Mac Mini (mid 2011) and I didnt upgarde to recent Lion update, so am still on 10.7.2, but suddnelly everytime i restart my mini or wakes up from sleep mode, I have to re-choose my wi-fi network from a network list!!
I don't know how I can let my mini connect automatically to my wi-fi network?
My 2009 uMBP 10.6.6 is unable to join an open network, while my Win 7 Boot Camp partition, iPod Touch, and separate Win XP machine, all are able to. It can find the network, but when I try to join it, it immediately says "connection failed."
My iBook suddenly just stopped connection to my time capsules network. Everytime I can on my network to join it, it asks for my password which I then put in, then it says connection timeout. I have restarted both the laptop and time capsule but it still won't connect. I can get on the network perfectly fine on my iPhone but not laptop.
I recently started having this problem, it just started out of nowhere. Whenever I turn on my iBook, it autoconects to my neighbors network, and not mine. I cannot use their network it's too slow. So now I have to go to the top right and specifically select my wireless network in order to connect to it. There's many networks found on my laptop, and it used to autoconnect to mine. Any way to make the apple automatically connect to my network? The keychain definitely has saved my wireless security password. It just annoying for me to go and click on the wireless icon and select the network everytime i turn my laptop on...
So about a couple of days ago, out of the blue my 15 inch macbook pro stopped connecting to my homes wireless network
i ran techtool deluxe and it said that my volume structure test had failed so i googled what to do and i came up across a couple threads saying to use the fsck -y command after booting up into single user mode so i ran that twice and ran techtool again. this time everything passed however i am still unable to connect to the internet
but connecting via ethernet is working fine. airport is detecting my home network fine the only problem is whenever i input my password to join it, it fails
I just had a new DirecTV DVR (model: HR22-100) installed and noticed there was a USB port on the front side of the DVR. I searched online on DirecTV's website and noticed to connect the DVR to the my wireless network I would need to order an $80 Linksys Wireless Adapter. The goal of connecting the DVR to the Internet is to access DirecTV's ON DEMAND service.
Would a USB Wireless Adapter serve the same function? If so, is there a preferrable brand/model I should buy? How would then the Airport recognize the USB adapter (as my network is password protected)? Does anyone have any experience with this? I currently have a Macbook with the latest OS (10.6.2) connected to my Airport connected to my DSL modem.
I've been using my MacBook to connect to the Internet through my Linksys wireless router around three years now. While I've had more than my fair share of problems between my MacBook and my wireless router, recently, things seems to have been going fine. While my wireless router needs a restart at least once or twice a day, I haven't had any major issues with it until a few weeks ago when my MacBook refused to connect to the network. It suddenly started working again two or three days later and I haven't thought about the issue until yesterday, when my laptop has again refused to connect.
When I login, the Wi-Fi searches for a Wi-Fi network and eventually connects to mine with the error 'Alert: No Internet Connection' in the menu. It can connect to my phone's wireless hotspot fine and all other devices in the house can connect to the network fine.
Just replaced a 500 gb time capsule with a new dual band 1 tb time capsule (first one died). My iMac, ipods, ps3 and wii all can connect to the network and work great. My wife's HP laptop, which worked fine 3 days ago, isn't connecting well. It picks up the "excellent" signal to connect to the local network made by the time capsule, but can not connect to the bigger internet. In other words, no browsing, email...etc. the signal is "excellent, and all other devices in the house can "see" and use the internet
I am trying to rent some movies in the iTunes store but regardless of what account I use it keeps popping up with the message of: "This item cannot be downloaded on this network, you must connect to a wifi network or download it on your computer". My computer is already online, I am able to access the iTunes store, just not download!
