Hardware :: Airport Extreme Won't Recognize IP Address

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 Leopard :: Renamed Airport Extreme - Time Machine Won't Recognize Previous Backup Drive
I changed the name of the Airport Extreme that the external USB drive I use for my Time Machine backup is attached to, and now Time Machine won't recognize the previous destination. How can I resume backing up to that drive without starting from scratch?

MacBook Pro :: Doesn't Recognize Airport Extreme
I've posted this problem in other thread but so far hasn't solved the problem. Maybe someone in here has the same problem.

My MBP is unable to detect my AirPort Extreme wirelessly, but detect it when I connected them with the ethernet cable. So I did and tried resetting the base station to default settings. The minute I unplugged the Ethernet cable of my MBP, the AirPort Extreme icon in the AirPort Utility apps disappeared.

I tried many times rescanning it but to no avail.

However, my AirPort detect the network that I created, but it won't connect to it.

The hardware itself, the AirPort Extreme, seemed to be working fine. My internet connection is fine too. I'm currently stealing my neighbor's Wi-Fi connection, just to check if my MBP could connect to other network, and it did.

Does anyone have any idea of what might be the problem... my MBP vs. my AirPort Extreme base station?

PowerPC :: TiBook G4 Won't Recognize Sonnet Aria Extreme In Cardbus Slot?
My TiBook 15" G4 (OSX 10.4.8) has an Airport slot but no Airport card. I got a Sonnet Aria Extreme card but it shows nothing on the TiBook � not in the menu bar or in System Profiler. I've tried restarting with and without the card inserted. The Sonnet support guy suggested everything I had already done and then came up with "Check under the keyboard to be sure the cardbus connection was intact." Seems fine. I'm assuming the card has the Broadcom chipset because they swear it works fine on the 15" TiBook G4.

Also, Airport software is updated, but doesn't show or function because it doesn't see any wireless capability.

Like everybody else who gets frustrated, I've also done everything again 4-5 times, just in case the computer or the card might forget that it doesn't work.

OS X Leopard :: 10.5.1 On G4 PowerPC Won't Connect To Airport Extreme?
I recently purchased and Airport Extreme for my MacBook Pro and is working great using WPA2. When I installed 10.5.1 on my older G4 Dual 867 PPC it has WPA security and will not connect to the Airport Extreme. I know NOTHING about wireless connections and need to know what I need to do to get the G4 connected to the network. Do I change the WPA2 to something else? Is there different settings I should use on the G4?

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

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

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Airport Extreme Won't Sleep
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 :: Airport Extreme Suddenly Won't Connect To Internet?
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.

PowerPC :: Won't Work With External HD Via USB To Airport Extreme
I just purcahsed an AppleTv and the Seagate FreeAgent 500GB External HD. I wanted to know if I could transfer my iTunes library to my external drive over Airport Extreme if the Seagate is attached via USB Hub?

I was also wondering if I did this would my library will be recognized by my Powerbook and AppleTV. Also when I sync iPods, iPhones and the like to my powerbook will they sync from the Seagate attached to the extreme?

I also plan on adding an iMac in October. Will it also be able to access the library from the Airport Extrene base station?

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

Mac Pro :: Windows XP Won't Recognize Airport Card
I just got a new MacPro (running Leopard) and I'm trying to get Windows XP to work via Bootcamp.

I used the Bootcamp Assistant to create the partition, then install XP, and then from XP install the various drivers from the Leopard Install CD. But XP doesn't think there is a wireless card in the Mac, which makes me think it is a driver issue.

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

Hardware :: Does The Airport Extreme Recognize Multiple Partitions To An Attached Drive?
I have a Drobo hung via USB off my airport extreme. When I first connected it, the Drobo was formatted to be 2 tb but has since grown to over 6 tb in capacity. Now, one of the great things about Drobo is whenever you add space, it will partion the drives to give you the additional space, but this only really works if you have it connected to your computer directly.I have close to 6 tb of available space on my drobo, and only about 2 being used. My mac thinks the drobo is full and won't copy to it. Any way to get my iMac or airport extreme to recognize there is actually more space, or partitions?

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Printing From Imac - Unable To Recognize Printer
I attached my Imac to the Airport and the printer to the Airport. It's a Canon Pixma MX700. The airport utility sees the printer but when I try to print, the Imac does not see the printer. I hardwired the Imac to the Airport because I assumed the connection speed woud be better. Could this be the problem? I am able to get on-line from my laptop PC so I know the thing is working. I have not tried to print from the laptop.

Hardware :: Getting No IP Address To My Airport Extreme
About a week ago my internet connection would drop out for hours. After setting messing around with my router and modem and reseting everything it would work for a few hours then stop again. My connection is provided by Charter Cable, through a Linksys BEFCMU10 V4.0 modem, to a Linksys WRT55AG V2.0 router. If I removed the router and wired directly into the G5 from the modem, the internet connection would start working perfectly. If I went back, reset the router and hooked it up again, I would lose connection and it would actually take the modem completely offline, requiring the modem to be reset to get reconnected. So I decided I would spring for an Airport Extreme Base Station, figuring the router was bad.

Well I get home with the new AEBS hook it up, and does the same thing. Apples menus and troubleshooting guides. (The main reason I decided to get the AEBS) Well after going through the setup, it says it is not receiving an IP address.

OS X :: Airport Connection Has Ip Address But Still Won't Connect?
Recently moved and had a net connection installed yesterday, the guy set it up and it connected fine up until last night when i decided to mess around with OSC control and had to set up my own local network to do it.

Now today I'm trying to connect to the net again back on the default 'automatic' location (i made a seperate location for the OSC to try and avoid this sort of trouble) - and although Airport is picking up the router and is saying it HAS got an IP address, the internet is still not connecting.

I've done a few common sense diagnostic checks, its not Firefox becuase I'm running Little Snitch and thats not showing any movement either..I checked that its automatically configuring using DCHP and supposedly wiped the network settings by deleting the .plist files but its still doing the same thing: reporting that it's connected and has an IP address, but still with no connectivity.

Diagnostics says it 'appears to be connected' but the Network Setup Assistant gets to the last stage of the setup and asks me to check my diagnostics because it can't connect. When seconds later it has an IP and is 'connected'.

MacBook Aluminum :: Super Drive Won't Recognize DVD's But Will Recognize CD's.
My optical drive won't recognize any DVD's. It doesn't matter what kind of DVD, it won't recognize any. I was watching a movie one day about a month ago. The movie ended, I ejected the disk and put another disk in. It wouldn't recognize it. It jsut let it spin a few times, stopped, and spit the disk back out. I thought it might just be the disk. I put another one in. Same thing. I tried the disk I'd been watching just minutes before. Same thing. I tried a number of movies I've watched on the computer many times and it does the same thing. The thing I'm worried about is my warranty ran out about a week before this started. Has anyone had to have their drive replaced? How much did it end up costing and how long did they keep your machine? I use mine for business and really can't be without it. Has anyone figured out a simple fix for this issue? Beow is my drive information.

Hardware :: Airport Utilities Can't Find My Airport Extreme
I have a Macbook (white unibody) running Snow Leopard. I have a personal wireless network using an Airport Extreme and I have an external hard drive (WD) connected to the Airport Extreme. I use this hard drive for my Time Machine Back ups.

I just got back from a trip and tried to back up my time machine. I got the error that the back up disk is not available. I then tried to open the airport utilities.

It tells me that "Airport Utilities is unable to find any Airport Wireless devices". I find this doubly strange because I have no problem connecting to the internet on this wireless network which supposedly does not exist.

MacBook Pro :: First USB Port Won't Recognize IPhone 3GS But Does Recognize Other IPods?
I have an iPhone 3GS running the latest 4.0 beta OS.

I also have the latest 17" MacBook Pro which I use to administer my iPhone.

The problem I am having is iTunes does not recognize my iPhone when it is plugged into the first USB port (next to the mic input). The System Profiler however DOES list the iPhone under the USB section.

If I plug the iPhone into the other two USB ports it is recognized just fine in iTunes.

All of my other iPod devices work just fine with all USB ports.

Sometimes when I plug my iPhone into the first USB port iTunes thinks for about 30 seconds then says something like...

"An iPhone has been detected, but it could not be identified properly. Please disconnect and reconnect the iPhone then try again"

The best I could do was change the settings to 5ghz wireless n on the hope that he can't connect to wireless n and that worked except the problem is that only my laptop works with wireless n and I need to use my wireless for other things.

Is there a way to ban this guy from my airport extreme or find out his IP address and send it in to the cops or something. I'm seriously getting pissed at people for using programs to get free things.

Software :: AirPort Extreme Can't Load Some Websites?
I upgraded to AirPort Extreme from the previous router because my Mac would drop the wireless 802.11n connection way too often. I setup AirPort Extreme to connect through PPPoE to my optical fiber cable device. Since then the connection is fast and never drops. On the other hand it seems I cannot access some websites. These include quite a few domains, and also almost all https secured connections. For example, in a website like [URL] everything seems to go well until I need to access a secure page over https. Same on [URL]and several others. Switching back to the old modem seems to solve the issue, but then I get the old problem of the connection constantly dropping.

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