Hardware :: Connecting Non Wireless PC And Printer, MacBook Pro With Airport Extreme?

Nov 23, 2009

I need to know how I can set up a system so that I can use the printer and browse the internet wirelessly on the MacBook Pro and have the non-wireless PC connect to the internet and use the printer as well.

It sounds confusing, so hopefully one of you guys will be able to understand it and maybe quickly draw a labeled diagram to show me.

Hardware :: AirPort Extreme - Connecting HDD For TM And Printer

Sep 13, 2009

I have a 1.5TB external HDD that I am using with my iMac. But I have just added a MBP, so now I have two computers that need backing up. I was thinking of time capsule, but someone suggested I just get an airport extreme and hang the 1.5TB drive off of that. Is that do-able? But also the MBP only has 2 USB ports (my old Dell had 4). If I got the extreme, could I split the USB port and have both a HDD AND a printer off the extreme? Now that I say this out loud (or type outloud), this seems unlikely, but I thought I should check.

Hardware :: How To Use Airport Extreme Wireless HDD And Printer With USB Hub

Aug 6, 2009

Quick question, if I were to get a usb hub to use with an airport extreme would I be able to use both an external hard drive for backup and a printer for wireless printing or will it only let me use one? Also, would I be able to do this with an airport express? From what I see it seems like the express doesn't support hard drives.

Feb 24, 2009

I just bought my first Mac from ebay i'm a new user and don't know much about macs, I was using my ethernet to surf the web until my belking router comes in. So this is what I have done so far my desktop is wired to the router running XP the connection is fine and my setup is a WPA, my macbook is running 10.5.6 Lepord my router says the MB is connected to the router but I'm unable to connect to the internet. TCP/IP is set to DHCP my airport says status on, and that it has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet I've already have my MB set to share web, internet, files & printers on my network. Is there something i missed or i'm doing wrong I called belking and got no problems with the router we used many setup changes and I ran a hardware test on my MB and no problems were found.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To LanierLD145 Printer Via Shared Wireless Network

Jun 6, 2012

I am a new intern with a small company and am trying to connect my Macbook Pro's printer settings to our office printer, which is a LanierLD145. We halso have an HP3600 on the same wireless network which my Macbook can detect and print to just fine via the shared network server. However, when I try to find the LanierLD145 I can't find it anywhere on my shared network or via a wireless to connection in order to print to it from my laptop.

I have access to the desktop I believe the printer is routed to the server through and have "shared printer with network" via this computer. However, I still cannot find the LD145 icon on my macbook when I try to connect and print, even when going through the "Windows"-> (shared server) route. I've also installed apple's "general lanier printer driver" in hopes have luck finding the printer if I have the driver installed, but that has not worked either. How I can connect the macbook to the LanierLD145 via my wireless server connection?

Info:
MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

I have my AE set up in my office where three computers and two printers are picking up its signal just fine. However, I have a computer in another room that is only about 30 ft away from the AE router and sometimes the signal is very week while other times it won't connect at all. Yet, I can pick up other networks from other houses just fine.

Hardware :: Connecting Airport Extreme To Comcast Cable?

May 9, 2009

Trying to connect a new Airport Extreme Base Station to my iMac. Was hoping I could do so without connecting the AEBS to the imac via ethernet--is that possible? Why i try to do so, AEBS setup asks for my DHCP settings,etc.. If I connect AEBS to the computer via ethernet, will that work and will I be able to establish a network? Sure isn't going the way the "easy instructions" claim.

Jan 4, 2010

I apologize in advance if this has been answered before (I couldn't find an answer using search). I have an Airport Extreme wireless network in my home that works great. I just got an xbox 360 with the latest wireless adapter ("N" type) and when I try to set up the xbox to work wirelessly, the setup "fails" - xbox either can't "see" my home wireless network or else can't attach to it. Any suggestions how I can fix this problem?

I have an eMac 1Ghz with 10.3.9 on it and I just bought a new Lexmark Wi-Fi Printer. I have no Extreme card, just a Netgear Wired/Wireless router that's obviously connected to my eMac via CAT5 cable. I set up the printer for wireless, hoping my eMac would use the router as a card-substitute type deal. Well it doesn't. Cannot connect as if it were not there.

Hardware :: AirPort Extreme (dual Band/simultaneous) With 1 PC Connecting...

Nov 12, 2009

I have the newest AirPort Extreme that transmits simultaneously in 2.4GHz and 5GHz. It's been great. My speeds have jumped 2-3x what they were before I upgraded to this router. Now, I'm getting 28-30MB per second download speeds. Before this I was getting 8-10MB per second.

But, I have a problem. My MBP connects great to the AirPort Extreme (802.11n at 2.4GHz or 5GHz). One PC desktop works great with the AirPort Extreme (via Ethernet). And, I have another PC laptop connecting at good speeds (802.11g). But, I have one other PC that sees and connects to the Airport Extreme signal (802.11g) but nothing happens. It's like a garden hose with very little to no water. The signal strength is very strong and, again, the computer DOES recognize the signal. It's an XP desktop (4 or 5 years old) with an 802.11g card inside.

Any thoughts as to why I have this problem with this one computer? It connected fine with my prior wireless router. It's a new problem.

By the way, the Airport Extreme is setup with all of the normal defaults and "automatic" settings, WPA2, etc. My cable provider is Comcast and the router gets it signal from a new modem. There are no other

OS X :: How Do I Set Up The Airport Extreme With My DSL For Wireless?

Jul 6, 2009

I don't understand something very basic about the internet...

I have been using a 2WIRE wireless box plugged into my phone line/DSL for four years. I knocked it over and it doesn't seem like it is broadcasting a wireless signal anymore, so I bought an Airport Extreme Base Station, 2007 square model used.

I don't understand how to set it up... Can't I just throw away the 2WIRE thing now? When I try to use the Airport Extreme thing, it does not recognize the internet DSL signal or something.

I just want to use the Airport Extreme as a dsl wireless router alone.

I don't want the 2WIRE thing. The 2WIRE thing is usable when I plug my ethernet cord into it, but it is no longer broadcasing a wireless signal.

How do I set up the Airport Extreme with my DSL for wireless?

Sorry this is so stupid. I just don't understand what to do at all.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme And Network Printer

Dec 11, 2010

I recently replaced my aging linksys G router with an Airport extreme. I have an HP 2605dn printer connected to it via ethernet. When I set this up with the old router everything worked great, printer showed up in OSX and added with a couple of clicks. Now that I have moved to the airport I cannot find the printer at all from OSX on either my MacBook Pro with 10.6 or my Powerbook with 10.5. However all of the Windows 7 machines I have in the house see it and print fine. I feel like I'm missing something very simple and help would be amazing.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme And Printer/Scanner?

Mar 1, 2009

So I purchased a brother MFC 290C so I could both print and fax.

I was able to hook it up to my airport extreme base station (the n version) and set up the printing function from multiple computers. So I am happy with that.

However I am unable to set up the network scanning function because I need 1 of 2 pieces of info:

Either the IP address for the printer OR the mDNS service name..

Now the printer is hooked in to the base station using the USB port. What is the easiest way to find its IP address? I am not allowed to enter anything for mDNS, I have to browse, and I can not see any choices when I browse for it.
