Which would be better, a USB wireless adapter or installing an actual wireless card? The computer is a PowerMac G5 1.6GHz and I want to add wireless capability to it. Which card is the best and which USB adapter is the best. We'll be using a Linksys router.
i need to find out how to get my hands on the correct adapter to connect my macbook pro to my old G4 20 inch cinema display. i know there is an expensive powered unit, that is an adc to dvi adapter, but there is also just a regular dvi to adc adapter, and im not sure which one i need? or how to get my hands on one that doesnt cost over $200 (the powered one, if thats what i need)
I have the mac mini adapter that allows you to plug into a VGA monitor. I noticed my windows laptop has this same plug in on the side of it. So I Ihave the VGA cable going from the Mac into my windows laptop now (instead of my viewsonic monitor)... is there a way to view my mac mini desktop using my windows laptop screen instead of a separate monitor? (and instead of using 3rd party programs like VNC etc)
I also looked about for this but couldn't find anything.Im currently using a 13" mac book (Which i love) But the monitor is sooo small for using programs like logic and reason ect at the same time. I need to use an external monitor for this. I know you can get an adapter for this but do you have to duel screen your laptop with the screen. OR (This is my question) Can you keep your macbook closed maybe on a shelf somewhere and still use your macbook with a keyboard/mouse and the external monitor?
Are there any that a store like best Buy sells that are compatible with a Mac / Macbook? I need to pick up a signal in another room, and the only way would be to run a long USB cord attached to a wireless adapter...but it seems like none of the bigger brands sell Mac-compatible versions. If anyone knows of a compatible adapter, please post about it!
I have a 2.66GHz Mac Pro and will be moving it to a room that does not have a wired internet connection but does have wireless in the house. Other than getting a USB wireless adapter is there any way else so I can take advantage of the wireless signal to get online using my Mac Pro?
I'm trying to plug my new mac mini into my Dell flat screen monitor. It doesn't seem to fit my HDMI to VGA cable so I'm assuming that my cable is in fact a DVI? The cable is actually a little too big for the VGA adapter and no spots for the screws.
So i recently bought a Zonet usb wireless adapter (ZEW2051) on tiger direct for around 7 bucks and now want to use it with my ibook (my airport card isn't working). I have seen solutions for other cards but can't seem to find an answer for this one.
System Profiler recognizes it as
Version:48.02 Bus Power (mA):500 Speed:Up to 480 Mb/sec Manufacturer:ZyDAS Product ID:0x1211 Vendor ID:0x0ace
I purchased the Samsung SCX-4500 Laser Printer, and I want to makie it a wireless printer. I am wondering where to purchase a USB Wireless Printer Adapter that would plug into the printer, and how would I set it up. Note: It wont be connected to a wireless router, I want to connect a USB Wireless Adapter to the printer instead. Am I suppose to be looking for a bluetooth adapter for the printer, and any bluetooth USB adapter work?
When both computers Beige G4 (os 9,2,2) and an eMac (os x Tiger) are connected to the internet with wire cables, there's no problem. I can hook up to the eMac from my Beige G4 (os 9.2.2)using Chooser/Appletalk/and inputing the IP address of the eMac (from Network preferences); which lets me connect.
When I'm hooked up to Internet- wireless with Afterthemac n300 usb internet adapter on eMac, my problem is that I need to have an IP Address of the wireless computer (eMac 750mhz) so that I can connect to it with a G4 Beige Mac os 9.2.2) which I can't find. I get the following in the Network preferences: Configure IPv4: Using DHCP (drop menu); IP Address 192.168.2.11; Subnet Mask 188.8.131.52; Router 192.168.2.1 The optional boxes for DNS Servers and Search Domains are empty.
These numbers were suggested by the Internet provider, which I entered in anticipation and before I received the n300. The router which I rent from the service provider is a SIEMENS GIGASET567. So- is there a way that I can change the numbers from above so that I can connect both computers. I tried the IP 192.168.2.11 but eventually a message comes back telling me it can't find the server. Another reason might be if I would want to hook up to the eMac from another office to get information on that particular computer.
I currently have a Linksys WUSB54GP that I had hooked up to my PC for wireless access. Well it doesn't agree well with my new airport extreme. Anyone using something they would like to recommend that DOES work with an airport extreme??
I have a macbook that is not wireless n enabled. i know i could take apart the macbook and install a new airport card that is and that would work (and probably will one day soon) for the time being would a usb adapter work the same?
Also airport seems to drop its connection pretty frequently and doesn't like to work more than a few feet away from the docking station. I'm hoping it's because the airport card is old. Would an adapter fix this as well?
I need advice on an affordable wireless usb adapter for my imac g5. i have the netgear ma111 that worked fine until i upgraded my netgear wgr614 router. now it sees the router but cannot or will not connect.
Anyway, I have a Powerbook G4 that's about five years old. It doesn't have an internal wireless card so I bought a Linksys wireless adapter to plug into the side of my computer when I first got the computer. It worked fine for years. I recently reformatted my hard drive and now when I insert the wireless adapter it no longer will allow me to connect to the internet. I'm aware that Linksys doesn't have drivers for Mac users so I'm kinda confused how I got it to work in the first place. I don't remember installing any third party software, but I may have-- it was a few years ago. what I should do to allow me to use my linksys card in my Mac? I've heard of Orangeware but I'm not sure if that's the solution.
Oh one more thing, when I plug the card in, an icon appears in the top right corner that shows something is plugged into the port but doesn't allow me to click on it and search for wireless connections.
I am trying to get onto our home wireless network using a G4 a friend has just given me. It doesn't have an airport facility so my friend has also given me a 802.11g wireless ethernet adapter. I have followed the instructions exactly (accessing the adapters internal configuration and setting it to the wireless networks SSID and channel, then going back into the network settings and re-setting it to "obtain IP address using DHCP') When i restart the computer the network status reads as "built in ethernet is active and has a self-assigned ip address. you may not be able to connect to the internet" (the marker next to it is yellow) needless to say I cannot connect to the internet.
Macbook Air, generic miniDP to VGA adapter from Ebay, 2 different VGA monitors, one 19" 1280x1024, another 1680x1050. Either one results in a blurry, low contrast image with muted colors. Pretty sure I'm using native res.
I have a MacBook Pro 2012 (Lion) and am connecting to my monitor via the mini displayport and a VGA adapter. This worked fine for a while, but now is intermittent. It's not the cable or the monitor as I have tried with several and get same results. The port works fine with an Apple monitor and no adapter. I've seen several threads on this, but no solutions other than starting up with monitor plugged in which I've done.I updated the OS and it worked fine yesterday, but today not working again.
i have my xbox hooked up to the internet through my airport extreme but recently it stopped recognizing my network and i cant figure out why? All of my other wireless devices work on my airport except my 360 and my imac running windows 7 in bootcamp finds my network but only gives me limited access to the network.
Has anyone tried to use a wireless USB adapter to "stream" from an iMac to an HDTV? I was thinking of using a USB to VGA adapter and a USB to audio adapter with a wireless hub to get my iMac to mirror on my HDTV (just a few feet away, but through the floor).
I've been using a wireless adapter to connect a PC and a laser printer to my Apple based network. The laser printer is always available but the PC only shows up occasionally. I am not making any changes to cause it to show up when it decides to.
I recently bought a Mac G4 Power PC Graphite used from a friend of mine for $30. (By the way, i'm only 13) My parents said that I cannot buy any new hardware or software for it, including upgrades. The mac is running 10.1.5 with 320 meg of ram. I need to get a netgear ma111 usb wireless adapter to work, otherwise i will be without internet.
For reasons I would rather not get into, let's say that I had to stop using my built-in wireless card and had to switch to a USB adapter. Let's also say that the driver for the Asus & Hawking adapters (both re-packaged versions of the same crap) are buggy as hell and cause system panics when large memory consumers + crappy network driver are both in use (iTunes or RSync over the wireless).
