Hardware :: AEBS Shared Disk Connection Since 13" 10.6 Upgrade

Sep 3, 2009

Since upgrading my MBP 13" to Snow Leopard, I'm having intermittent connection problems with my Airport Extreme Base Station (5ghz band) shared 2TB USB WD MyBook Studio drive. The connection appears in the finder sidebar but the main window header shows "connecting..." and frequently does not connect. Resetting the router is only a temporary fix.

I'm sure there is a few people on here that have made the swap - is it worth it? Is the difference in speed noticible to warrant an upgrade.

My current setup:
2.4 MBPu
Mac Mini (coming soon)
Dell Inspiron
Canon Printer
Slingbox (hardwired to AEBS)
AE (old school version)
WD 1TB external (connected to AEBS via usb)

All currently connected to a AEBS wireless.

Hardware :: AEBS & Time Machine Options - Shared Airport Drive Doesn't Show Up?

Feb 16, 2010

I've just bought the new Airport Extreme Base Station last night. I set up everything just fine. I've set up an external HD to the USB port and got it to work fine so far in terms of file sharing and reading and writing. I also have a dedicated Time Machine external HD attached to my MBP USB drive.Does Time Machine backup shared airport drives? This is a deal breaker for me. When I go into time machine after my latest backup, the shared airport drive doesn't show up .Am I missing something? Can time machine back up anything connected to the AEBS?

Hardware :: Saucer AEBS Keeps Losing Connection

Jul 9, 2010

I have used my saucer-shaped AEBS for years without a single issue but now in the last month it has started frequently dropping the connection. The network is still seen from may Macbooks, but I can't get to the internet. And Airport Utility will not see the AEBS or the Apple Extreme I use for Airtunes. Power cycling the AEBS brings everything back. It seems to be random but frequent, like once an evening. The only thing different in the past month is that I got a (non-Apple) smartphone that is also on the network, along with my two Macbooks and Apple Extreme. Could that cause this problem somehow? Or can the AEBS just be failing as it ages?

Hardware :: AEBS - Which External Hard Disk To Get

Jan 12, 2010

I want to get an external hard drive for my Airport Extreme, in the range 1tb (maybe 1.5tb but likely 1tb). Google reveals some people have had problems with particular drives so I thought I would ask which drives work well so I can just avoid any problems in the first place?

Hardware :: XP Shows AEBS HFS And Mounted Disk As Fat32

Sep 23, 2009

I just got a new harddisk and have been trying to get it functioning properly today, the problem is the following: Drive is partitioned in HFS+ using macdrive7 (installed on my system). It does show up in windows very easily thanks to the airport utility, however, it shows the file system as being fat32. I formatted the disk in HFS+ on purpose to be able to storage large files in the network drive, so this is a problem. Also, the disks show empty, although i already put some files on the disk for testing purposes, this was done when the drive was connected directly via usb. Does anyone know how I can get windows to show the drives as HFS+?

Hardware :: AEBS - MobileMe / Disk Doesn't Show Up In Finder

Mar 12, 2009

Since the AEBS firmware update I've been trying to access my usb-disk, connected to my Airport Extreme, through the internet using MobileMe, without success. My iMac and Powerbook show up in Finder under the 'Shared' tab but my airport-disk doesn't. Back to my Mac is giving a green light ... MobileMe registration in the Airport utility sticks and all settings seem to be OK. What's wrong?

ISP also provided a router (Philips) which is NAT and UPnP enabled ... AEBS is connected to the Philips with ethernet (Bridge Mode). Disk is HFS+ formatted ...

Anybody got the same problem? Anybody got a solution ...?

Applications :: Using ITunes With Dropping Connection To A Shared Library On Vista?

Sep 12, 2007

Seems that maybe i had this in the wrong forum so i'm posting it over here...

I have all my music stored on a Vista machine. I share that library with my Macbook Pro. When i open itunes on the macbook it recognizes the library on my vista machine and i enter the password and everything is fine for about 90 seconds. Then it just drops the connection and the shared library disappears. Any ideas? anyone else have this problem? It's not a network problem because i can still access the internet and stuff after this happens.

Hardware :: AirPort Extreme Password In XP For Shared Disk?

Nov 18, 2009

I just configured a shared USB disk in my Airport Extreme. My Mac can see it no problem, but when I try to access it from an XP machine it asks for a user/password. I have set the disk protection to "Airport Extreme password". As far as I know, there is only a password for it, but no user name or account related to it. Windows insists in asking for the user name, and I can't leave it blank. I tried putting the Airport Extreme name as the user name, but it doesn't work either.

A couple of months ago I was at the head office and connected to the in house Wifi. When I did, a bunch of shared drives or folders showed in my finder under "Shared". I figured no biggie, when I got away from the head office they'd go away. But they didn't. And I can't figure out how to get rid of them.See attached photo.

OS X :: Bluetooth Keyboard Loosing Connection After Upgrade

Aug 7, 2010

Since I upgraded to OSX 10.6.4, my wireless Apple keyboard is losing it's connection when the computer goes to sleep. I never had that issue before the upgrade. It will also on occasion lose it's connection while I'm actively using it. Is this a known issue that will eventually be addressed by Apple, or is there something else going on?

Laptops :: MacBook Pro Drops Connection After Snow Leopard Upgrade?

Sep 3, 2009

o I took the plunge and giddily purchased Mac OS 10.6 aka Snow Leopard the day it was made available. Usually, I have very little worries being an early adopter to new OS releases considering the successful upgrade experiences I've had through the years of being a Mac user.

After upgrading to Snow Leopard from 10.5.8, my MacBook Pro 17" (2.6 GHz, 4GB RAM, 200GB @7200 RPM HDD, non-unibody) would consistently drop it's internet connection whether it was via Ethernet (wired) or through AirPort (wired and wireless are using DHCP). I've applied several supposed fixes suggested everywhere on the Googled web with limited success:* Reset Network settings, deleted "Automatic" settings and created a new setting (called untitled)
* Zap the PRAM (hold Command+Option+P+R on restart)
* Flush the DNS cache(using: dscacheutil -flushcache on the Terminal)

These 'fixes' worked only for a few minutes, and the internet connection would eventually drop again. NOTE: Although other computers and drives were visible on my network, and Instant Messaging via Adium is still functional, which is weird, I could not connect to the internet through a browser, or connect Mail.app or even to the iTunes store.

Tired and frustrated at this point, I decided to finally call Apple Support (Case #134733179) and was suggested to try the following steps:* Shutdown the MacBook Pro, remove battery, disconnect the power, and then hold the Power Key for 15 seconds. After which I was told to replace the battery, reconnect power and zap PRAM and wait for 2 chimes before letting the keys go.

I was able to get connection for a while but lost it again after a few minutes of usability.And so I called again and was told this time to try:* Trash the SystemConfiguration folder (~/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration) and all of it's contents... then reboot.

The above suggestion seemed logical as it would obliterate any existing preferences that may be corrupted and affecting the connection setup. The system would then recreate a fresh preference file free of any lingering old settings. This again worked for a while, but sadly, my wired and wireless connection both drops within a few minutes of usage. It is also worth noting that simply restarting the MacBook Pro regains connectivity as well but drops after a few minutes on both Ethernet and Airport settings.

So today has been an unproductive day considering I spent all my efforts troubleshooting Snow Leopard (10.6) on the MacBook Pro, and couple that with the inability to use several key functionality such as SynergyKM to sync all three machines I have with one keyboard/mouse (not to mention the unpredictable behavior Adobe CS3 has been displaying (especially InDesign losing menus and drawing blank palettes!) and the loss of Letterbox's (plugin) features on Mail.app) and I am now forced to downgrade back to 10.5.8 via Time Machine Restore until Apple resolves or acknowledges this problem (or some knowledgable individual throws this dog a bone and help me out of this misery).In the meantime, I need to get work done and something as fundamental as a stable internet connection should have been high on Apple's "must work" priority list.

Hardware :: Access - Changing Time Capsule Disk (USB) To Direct Connection?

Jan 23, 2011

I was using a Western Digital 1T hard drive connected to my Time Capsule USB port. It was set up as Allow file sharing with Time Capsule password. I would like to stop using it here and directly connect it to my Macbook Pro (by firewire). When I try to do this, I can see the drive but get a message that I do not have user permissions to access it. I can't seem to figure out a way around this. Is there something that I can change so that I can directly access the disk? Do I need to reformat the WD drive in Disk Utility to be able to use it directly again?

IMac :: How Can I Boot From The Upgrade Disk Inside XP?

Oct 22, 2010

So I have XP installed on my 27" iMac, and that's is cool news. I also have a windows 7 professional upgrade disk, that bootcamp won't recognize. I would just blow away that partition and put 7 on. I don't care for any of my data on the XP install, I just want to get 7 on there with an upgrade disk.

How can I boot from the upgrade disk inside XP? Or is there another way?

If I try and install from inside XP it tells me it can only be done (configuration sets) from Windows PE (Preinstall enviroment)

as in I need to be booted from the disk.

How do I accomplish this? I also have a 2009 late iMac, which means that the video drivers don't work out correctly, but I already remedied that with making the video driver usb drive that fixes the issue. I just need to figure out how to get to the point to install.
