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.

Mar 31, 2012

I have an aiport extreme card in my emac. It was installed around a year and a half ago and has workd fine until yesterday. it suddenly says that it is not configured.

I have taken the card out and reinstalled it and reattached the cable mutiple times to no avail. And yes, I know how hard it is to push in.

Hardware :: Airport Won't Connect To The Internet Wirelessly?

Mar 8, 2010

I've read about a thousand threads and can't seem to find a solution to my problem: my computer is able to recognize my Airport network and it has the green signal next to it with the full signal strength, but when I select it, the internet doesn't work. I'm using a Macbook OSX with an Airport Extreme.

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.

OS X :: Can't Connect To Airport Extreme Base Station?

May 2, 2009

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 :: 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 :: 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.

MacBook :: Suddenly Won't Connect Wirelessly

Dec 3, 2010

Let me start by saying that I know very little about how computers/networks, etc work.

I've had my macbook for a couple years (I don't even know how to find out what year it was made, I'd guess 2008). It just suddenly stopped allowing me to connect to the internet wirelessly at my house. I brought it to my college campus, where I've been able to connect all semester, and I cannot connect there either. I'm receiving wireless signals in both places with my phone.

When I go to system pref - network....and highlight airport, it says it's not connected even though i have all my bars at the top right of the screen.

It says "Airport does not have an IP address and cannot connect to the Internet."

I should point out that my brother's macbook pro still works fine wirelessly in our house.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Suddenly Wireless Printer (HP B210) Won't Connect To MacBook

May 13, 2012

It worked a month ago. But now, since the update, I can't get my MacBook and printer to hook up and play nice. They're both on the same network, and both say they're connected okay, but the Mac can't find the printer wirelessly. Works fine via USB. I've rebooted the router, rebooted the Mac, rebooted the printer, and even completely uninstalled and then reinstalled the HP printer software, along with that update from the Apple support site. Its like there's a wall blocking their communication. Weird.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Won't Recognize IP Address

Aug 28, 2010

My Airport Extreme isn't recognizing the IP address from my cable modem. When the modem is connected directly to my MBP the internet works fine. When connected to the router I don't get any internet. I have powered off the modem and router and all devices, brought up the modem first (waited for all lights to come on), powered up the router, then the devices. Still nothing. I've tried deleting the DNS server information and resetting - nothing seems to work. There is a green light on the ethernet port on the Time Capsule so I believe the port is fine.

OS X :: Won't Work With AirPort Extreme, AirDisk And Backup

May 31, 2010

I am experimenting with two drives connected to my new AirPort Extreme. The first is for Time Machine, has been working well. The second is the experiment. The second drive is a storage drive that is usually attached to my iMac and is included in the Time Machine backups of the iMac. My question is if I decide to keep the storage drive on the AirPort then what would be the best way to keep it backed up? Could I run Carbon Copy Cloner from my laptop or would that just be a big mess? The goal would be to backup the storage drive to the other drive connected on the AirPort Extreme. I can live with the storage drive on my iMac if it is felt that this is a bad idea... just would be nice to be able to access the drive without having to have the iMac on... maybe I need to buy a less power consuming Mac Mini to be used as a server.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Airport Extreme Won't Sleep

Jun 20, 2012

I am at a loss with this one. I have a Mid-2011 Mac Mini running OS X 10.7.4 Server (11E53) connected via gigabit ethernet to an Airport Extreme. This computer will not sleep on its own using the system sleep timer.

If anyone has any ideas that may help, I'm all ears! The Mac Mini should sleep as intended and the Airport Extreme router should wake it if network resources are requested via a Magic Packet. This same Airport Extreme does wake the other computers on the network just fine when they are configured to Wake on Lan (womp 1 in the pmset -g output, below).

Hardware :: Won't Configurate Airport Extreme Firewall For Fonera

Feb 25, 2010

I recently got a Fonera+ to get free WiFi all over London in return for serving up some bandwidth in my neighborhood. My modem is in the back of my flat, and I need to keep the Fonera off an Airport Extreme router at the front instead of between my ADSL modem and rear Airport Extreme.

Here are the ports that Fon says must be adjusted in a firewall to allow the Fonera to work.

If you install your La Fonera behind a Firewall that limits outgoing connections then it is necessary to make sure your La Fonera can access the following ports on the internet:

Port Protocol Description
80 TCP Fonera Website / Portal for payments etc.
123 UDP Fonera Clock synchronisation
443 TCP Portal for payments etc.
1645 UDP Radius authentication
1812 UDP Radius authentication
1813 UDP Radius authentication
1937 TCP Fon heartbeat and updates
1938 TCP Fon heartbeat and updates
3990 TCP Coofachilli port normally internal but may be needed depending on firewall/router

My setup is ADSL Modem > Back Airport Extreme > AC Power Ethernet > Front Airport Extreme > Ethernet connected Fonera

Do I have to adjust the firewall in both routers?

Where and how in Airport Utility do I make these changes? It also seems that in any place I have found, it asks what services are needed. What services would this need?

Here is the rest of the information from the page that contained the ports above

To make sure you don't have to configure/install a Radius/Webserver locally, FON is offering free access to it's serverpark providing these services. You only have to allow your La Fonera to reach them through your firewall. You can't limit these services only to an ip-pool of *.FON.COM; hence FON has also backup servers elsewhere and allow eg access to Paypal, youtube, Google, Gmail, Flickr, ...
La Fonera cannot be configured to use a WebProxy. We advise to "whitelist" your La Fonera on Mac/Fixed Ip adress so it can be used without the configuration of a Proxy. If you can not configure your Webproxy you will need to obtain a standalone internet connection without such security. We assume if such security is present then your ICT Policy won't allow a service like La Fonera to exist in your Network at all! If you became a Fonera without obeying your ICT Policy then give the La Fonera to someone who can install it without breaking Company law!

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.

Hardware :: Won't Work With Airport Extreme AirDisk / Sending Error

Feb 11, 2010

So around last week my airport has been giving me some problems first of all it allows me to connect to my airdisk for about 30 min, then after 30 min when I click it to use I get this error (Connection Failed)(The server �Airport� may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again.)

Im really confused it always worked without a problem and now I get this the way to fix it is to restart my airport but then after like 30 min I get the same error.. Its also impossible to do time machine backups as well unless I restart the router a bunch of time.
