Hardware :: Airport Extreme Suddenly Won't Connect To Internet?

May 7, 2008

It could be a firewall setting. It could be a software update. Whatever it is, I cannot connect to the internet using Extreme (it does connect to the internet using just plain old wifi). This is a sudden problem--it worked fine last week.

I'm using OS 10.5.2.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Won't Connect To Internet?

Jul 12, 2010

I've had this simultaneous dual band APX for a while now and have just been overlooking this problem, but now I really just want to resolve it. Basically it will not connect to the internet when plugged directly into our cable modem. In order for it to work, I have to leave our old Belkin wireless router plugged in between the APX and cable modem.

Hardware :: Unable To Connect To The Internet Via AirPort Extreme

Jun 27, 2007

I currently use a Powerbook, and I access the internet though our AirPort Extreme router. Recently, for some reason, although I am on the right network, and signal strength is full - I am unable to connect to the internet! I've called my provider, and everything is fine on their end according to their systems. I've tried power cycling, and checking my settings, and everything SEEMS to be ok.

Intel Mac :: OS 10.7.4 Has Suddenly Stopped Printing To Epson CX4800 Printer Through Airport Extreme?

Jul 2, 2012

May iMac (OS 10.7.4) has suddenly stopped printing to my Epson CX4800 printer through Airport Extreme, though my MacBook (OS 10.5.8) continues to function just fine). The iMac will print if it is connected to the printer directly via USB. The iMac continues to connect to the Internet wirelessly. I've tried resetting the printer and ensuring the driver is up to date, but no joy.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Suddenly, Cannot Connect To The Internet Via Ethernet

Jun 4, 2012

I don't know what happened, but a connection that I use frequently has suddenly stopped working on my 4-year-old MacBook (10.5.8). I have tried some of the fixes suggested for wireless connection problems, but none have worked. I live in a place where wireless is not always a viable option, so I need my Ethernet connection...

OS X :: How To Connect AirPort Extreme To Non Mac Router

Feb 18, 2010

Just how do I connect a G4 to an Airport Extreme Base station via LAN cable, and then get it to connect to an existing wireless network (that's using a non Mac router). It's just that the existing airport card is painfully slow with a NAS and as I had the AE kicking about I thought I'd use that rather than buying a new PCI AE card.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Not Connected To Internet?

Jan 19, 2010

I have an airport extreme that was passed down to me when my aunt bought a time capsule. It has worked perfectly for nearly a year. I was out of town for a few weeks and came back to the amber blinking light. I use a cable modem to connect to the internet and a direct connection to my macbook pro works fine. I figured out how to use airport utility and i thought the errors were fixed, as the light is green now....but my laptop (or ipod touch) will not connect to the internet wirelessly.

OS X :: Airport Extreme Card -not Connected With Internet

Dec 18, 2010

I recently purchased an older model Airport Extreme on Ebay. Came in the original box and looks as though it was never used. I installed it on my G5 single processor which is equipped with an Airport Extreme card. I get my internet from Cox Communications in Tucson via a Scientific Atlanta modem. When I do a diagnostic, it shows everything related to the Airport is green. But, it doesn't work and I have no connection to the internet. What am I doing wrong?

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Access Over Internet

Jul 13, 2007

I hope the mac folks can lend a guy a hand. I have the latest AE and it runs great with a shared HD between Vista PC and my Macs. My ISP is dynamic so I'm using dyndns.org. Since I don't really want to leave a computer on 24-7 (for the dyndns updates) I have a linksys router take the feed from the cable modem. AE is in bridged mode. All disks and wireless is flawless. I can access my webcams via the static ip from dyndns, route it to linksys then to camera. But I can't figure out how or what to do to get access to my shared drivers over the net. I researched for a couple hours today and came up with a few people who did it (maybe they didn't have a leading router like me) but they didn't leave enough clues, details or links to research it some more. Apple online support is slim and I'm clueless on Bonjour configs.

Hardware :: Can't Connect PC Wireless 802.11g / Airport Extreme

Apr 26, 2005

My powerBook has no problem connecting, but the Airport Admin utility for Windows XP can't "see" the base station.

Clicking "Start" then "connect to" and then "show all connections" and then the name for my Airport network, a "choose a wireless network" screen comes up, a strength meter (all bars on) displays, and a reminder that a network key is required. Clicking "connect" on this screen shows a "wireless network connection" thingy -- but it never actually connects.

Mac Pro :: Airport Extreme Card - Which Of The 3 Wires To Connect?

Sep 27, 2006

I bought a MacPro two weeks ago and have just taken delivery of the bluetooth module and Airport Extreme card design specifically for the Mac Pro. I've put the bluetooth card in and connected up the cable that has "BT" label on it. I thought it would be same for Airport Card but there's 3 cables to choose from labelled intuitively "1" "2" and "3". All with the same connectors on the end and all taped up together. The Airport Extreme card requires 2xcables to be connected. Anybody out there have a MacPro with Airport pre-installed and can take the side off and have a look at their config for me please? They are supposed to be a service center install hence don't come with a manual, they refer you to the AppleCare Service Source Website.

It's a two year old 802.11a/b/g Airport Extreme Base Station.

I've tried connection via wireless and ethernet from two different Macs (one with an 802.11a/b/g Airport Extreme card and one with an 802.11a/b/g/n AE card.) I can ping the base station successfully, but I can't connect to it with Airport Utility.

Hardware :: Unreliable Internet Access With AirPort Extreme

Dec 10, 2010

I have an older cable modem running Comcast's service connected to the newest AirPort Extreme in my current setup. My computer is a 13.3" MacBook Pro with all of the latest software updates. With all of that said, I'm having problems with having webpages hang, dropped audio on streams and constant re-buffering of video. Strangely enough, my signal is always at full strength no matter how far away I am from the AirPort. Until a few days ago I was using a Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware with absolutely no troubles at all, but things have gone to hell with this new router. I've rebooted my modem and AirPort and I've browsed through the settings without finding any solutions yet. I've tried 5Ghz mode, I've tried being inches away from the AirPort and I've tried going to 802.11g with no improvements. Does anyone have an idea about what is going on?

Hardware :: AirPort Extreme - Light Is Green No Internet?

Sep 20, 2008

I have a networking question.

So I bought an AirPort Extreme Wireless-N and hooked it up to my cable modem and used the AirPort Utility to set up the base station to use DHCP.

It asks for stuff like DNS information and IP addresses in the wizard but I leave them blank hoping that the process is just going to be plug and play.

However, at the end of the wizard I was left with an amber light and a message saying that my internet connection was not working.

So then I go and plug my MBP directly to the cable modem via ethernet to try find my IP information. The modem works, so this rules out any problem of the modem to have internet connectivity.

It also gives me a bunch of IP address information:

So then I go back into the AirPort Utility and this time opt for a manual set up. I put in IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router, and DNS information into where it tells me to and let the wizard do its thing.

Afterward it says that the entire thing works perfectly. So I'm feelin' great about this except for the fact that I can't access the internet.. The light on the unit itself is SOLID GREEN, but there is no connectivity.

I am pretty much at a loss as to what to do.

Hardware :: Allow Others To Access Airport Extreme's Drive Via Internet

Mar 14, 2009

I have read the threads about my accessing the USB drive on my Airport Extreme via an AFP connection...and it works. Without a hitch. BUT I would like to allow others (who are not on my home network) to access this same drive (with some level of security). Is THAT possible and if so, how? I have 2 partitions on this HD, one is a mac-formatted partition and the other is a FAT32 for PC user access. Or course, each partition has a unique name so, depending on the user, they would access either the Mac or PC formatted partition. BTW, I did some thread-checking but all seem to find are one's that show how to I can make a connection to my own drives away from the home, NOT someone who is not associated with my home network to make the same connection to the USB drive on my APE.

Hardware :: Internet Connection Keeps Dropping - Using Airport Extreme?

Mar 16, 2009

I have just recently started having this problem. It seems when the computer sits idle, the connection drops. I don't see my network in the dropdown menu. I open airport utility, and the extreme base station does not show up. I find I have to unplug it, or do an actual reset on it to get it to show up.

I try resetting the cable modem as well, but I have never had issue with the internet connection itself here before. I try restarting the computer. When it does come back online/show up in AIrport Utility, it seems kind of random because it will take a few attempts at all 3 methods mentioned before it just suddenly appears in Airport Utility. So I really have no idea what is helping. The process is a pain in the butt though.

I have searched around, but I can't find many current articles on the problem.

The only other info I can offer is that I never had any problems until I installed the last Airport Utility update. I am running 10.5.6. The problem doesn't seem to happen while I am working, and online frequently.

I don't even know where to start trouble shooting.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Dropping Internet Connection?

Nov 1, 2009

I have a 3 month old Airport Extreme Base Station(dual band) running a secured 2.4 and 5GHz network.

It is dropping it's wireless internet(not signal, just internet) on my 13" Unibody MBP at least 2 or 3 times per day. Not at a certain time, or under certain circumstances, and I can't replicate it. My computer will continue to see the networks(named airFORBUSH and airFORBUSH(5GHz)), but there will be no internet, and it won't stay connected to them. If I connect to the network named "FORBUSH", which is our Linksys network, it connects and is up and running again, so I know it's not our ISP.

Here's my setup in my house(I'm the only one having this issue, since I'm the only one running wireless on the AEBS

Software :: Using Airport Extreme And Express - Fixing Internet?

Nov 14, 2009

I have just bought an Airport Extreme and Airport express, as I have quite a large house, so needed to boost the signal (plus its quite a remote area, dont get mobile signal, etc).

I have Airport Extreme connected to the Satellite broadband modem by ethernet cable.. has a green light on and is working and connected fine to my macbook air downstairs..

I have also set up the Airport Express upstairs, which is about 30 ft from the Airport Extreme box (wirelessly) - the airport express is also showing a green light.

The iMac that I have is in a bedroom upstairs and is about 18ft from the Airport Express.. however the signal on my imac is only showing 1 bar on the airport icon on my toolbar on my mac? I was using it for a short while, then I had a message saying I wasnt connected??

Surely the iMac should be picking up the express that is only about 18ft away???

when I check under 'Utilties' and Airport, it is showing the Aiport Extreme and Express on my computer, both showing a green light (that was when I had a faint signal).. It sounds as though, my imac is picking the signal maybe from the extreme downstairs??

Hardware :: Will AirPort Extreme Connect With Few Hard Drives?

I am looking to get an Airport Extreme to connect a few hard drives to but I want to make sure that it will do exactly what I want. Here is what I need:

-Have multiple users connect to a drive at one time
-Share a Printer
-Use as a Time Machine back up disk
-Work with Windows
-Ability to set up port forwarding for games
-Have the drives accessible remotely

I know it already does some of these things for sure, but how well does it do them. And what are the realistic wireless speeds for the USB data?

Hardware :: Using Slow Internet: AirPort Extreme Behind DSL Modem/router

Jan 27, 2009

I've just moved and have had to switch ISPs. I have DSL service and the only modem option my ISP provides is an all-in-one modem/Wi-Fi router. I have an AirPort Extreme that I would like to use, but with this setup, unfortunately, I have to put it behind the modem/router.

I've used the AirPort Extreme both wirelessly and via Ethernet, and it is noticeably slow in connecting to Web sites. My browser often gets stuck on "Looking up [URL]" or "Connecting to [URL]" when it's plugged into the AE via Ethernet. When I plug directly into the DSL modem/router, sites are connected to and loaded immediately. The problem only exists when plugged into the AE. (Strangely, speed tests show that the AE downloads at nearly the same speed as the DSL modem/router, but this doesn't account for the noticeable delay in connecting to and the initial loading of Web pages).

Hardware :: AirPort Extreme - Internet Connection Drops In Routine

Mar 22, 2010

We're running an airport extreme as our router. About once every day or every other day, the internet connection drops, but the router is still functioning fine (can connect to the router) and is visible via airport utility. We can't connect to the internet, whether via a wired or wireless connection. In order to get the internet back up, I need to so a restart on the airport utility. This seems odd, but this is the second airport extreme in a row that we've bought that has this problem (the other one lasted two months).
