Hardware :: Device That Work As Usb Hub - Connects Via Bluetooth

Jun 15, 2010

i was wondering if there is a device that works as a usb hub, but connects to the computer wirelessly via bluetooth to your mac. i think this would be nice since i will have a station where my macbook pro will go every night when i buy it and i would like to simply open it and have it connect to the monitor, printer, speakers, etc. without plug in in a bunch of cables.

2011 Macbook Pro Connects To Internet But Safari Doesn't Work

May 8, 2012

I am haveing and issue conencting. The probelm is when an ethernet connection is working Wifi is not, when Wifi is working ethernet is not. The issue is the netowrk control panel says Im always connected through wifi and ethernet 100% of the time but Safari or Firefox will not load a web page. It is strange because in Terminal I can ping any website. I'v restarted the router, the computer, I have even reloaded the OSX Lion. I have al the most up to date definitions. From a little bit of reasearch I see this is a ongoing issue and it is very frustrating. It is not a netowrk issue all my other devices work perfect when connected to wifi. 3 windows machines ipad iphone etc. Is the network card bad on the late 2011 macbooks?

Intel Mac :: Started Loosing Wireless Connection And When It Connects Then Work Very Slow?

Jun 13, 2012

I have a 27 inch, mid 2011 imac.  I bought it in March.  It has started losing its wireless connection.  The other issue is when it does connect it is very slow.  I have a netgear modem, I dont think this is the issue cause the IPAD, and wireless laptop connect fine.  I've also run a speed test, all wireless devices connect to 10Mbps and LAN devices connect up to 30 Mbps including the iMac when it is wired.  Could this be an issue with the airport card?  How would I know, how do I check?  What should I do?

Software :: Can A Bluetooth Phone Be Used For A Backup Device

Feb 1, 2008

I'm going to be getting a new phone very soon. I'm looking at the LG UX380 because it supports a 4GB memory card.

I don't really care about the music because I have many iPods to use.

That got me to thinking though - can I simply drag files to my phone from my iMac?

If that works, then maybe I could use Automator to set up a schedule to backup some of my more important stuff, then I can take it with me.

MacBook :: Bluetooth Mouse - Error Connecting To Device

May 2, 2009

Today my mouse ran out of batteries, so I went to get some new ones. I replaced them, the light on my mouse went on, and it seemed to be working. But, when I tried to move my clicker thing *on the computer* with my mouse, it didn't move. So, I looked at the bluetooth symbol on my computer, I'm on a MacBook, and it showed that my mouse wasn't connected. So I tried turning off the bluetooth, shutting off my mouse and turning it back on, taking out and putting the batteries back in the mouse, and none of these worked. So I went to "Browse Device" and my mouse was there, I clicked on it twice and it said "There was an error connecting to the device". I also deleted it from the bluetooth list, and I am now unable to get it back on the list!

Applications :: Bluetooth Printer Wont Connect Through Device Assistant

Jan 13, 2009

I just bought an HP Photosmart C5580 printer without Bluetooth capabilities. Trying to connect it to my MacBook Pro OS X 10.5.6. When I try to set up the printer through the Bluetooth "Set up Bluetooth Device" function, I select "printer" under the list of options. Once I hit "continue", the Set Up Assistant automatically closes, and all that pops up is the Print & Fax System Preference Box. It lists the printer there, but won't allow me to do anything to actually connect the printer.

What should pop up is another box, asking me to select the printer. Under Bluetooth Preferences, it says that no devices are set up. However, it is clearly recognizing that the printer exists because when I look under "Browse Device" it is listed there. Yet it's clearly not connected since double clicking on the new listed printer only gives the message, "this device does not have the necessary services."

Hardware :: Won't Work With External Firewire Audio Device

Jun 25, 2009

Yesterday I took delivery of the following kit- http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/produc...firewire-.html

As you can see, it comes with the FCA202 Audio interface - http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/produc...io-fca202.html

I opted for the FireWire package as it has the most better quality mics. I got it all hooked up, but for some reason, my Mac is not recognising my new sound device at all. I was looking under the Sound part of the Control Panel, but nothing new would register. I checked the FireWire part of the Device Manager (appologies I forget the actual name of the application). The Firewire device was listed as "Unknown", if I was to remove the device and refresh, it would show nothing. So i've got the feeling that its been seen, just not recognised correctly.

I tried a few things to try and help my situation.

1) Disconnecting any other attached device
2) Rebooting several times
3) Leaving system off and unplugged for 10-15 mins
4) Updating all software
5) Resetting my xxxx (I forget the term, but it involved rebooting holding CMD, Option, R and P) - can someone confirm how I know if this was actually reset?
6) Going into Activity Manager and confirming the Audio driver is loaded

From what I've read, Firewire config issues can be common with Macs. I am running an 18 month olf iMac 20" with 4 gig ram. I've not used my FireWire port for a while, about 6 months ago I used a FW external HD which didn't have any problems with. Alas I don't have any other FW devices to plug in and test the port. The final thing I'm going for is to leave the system unplugged for 10 hours, which will be ready to check after work.

One thing I was thinking about though - would getting a powered FW hub be of use at all?

Windows On Mac :: Bluetooth Mouse Won't Work In 7?

May 20, 2010

I have a microsoft bluetooth notebook mouse 5000 that works well in mac osx but when I go to windows 7 in bootcamp it reports that the bluetooth hid device driver is not working and the mouse won't work.

I can get it to detect the mouse and try to load the driver but then it says that the driver installation did not work.

In device manager the bluetooth hid device has a warning icon next to it and it says that the device is not working.

When I try to use my magic mouse in windows the same error happens and it says that the hid bluetooth device driver is not working.

Both mice work fine in mac osx and the microsoft mouse was working ok in windows until last week.

Since then, my son installed a couple of games in the windows side and the mouse started acting up the following day.

Hardware :: Will Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Work In Win XP

I'm currently considering getting an Apple keyboard, but haven't been able to decide yet whether to take the USB one or the bluetooth one.

I went to a local Apple retailer today and was told that the bluetooth one wouldn't work in Windows. Now, I mostly use OS X, but I do some occasional gaming too, and would need the keyboard to function properly in Windows too. Btw, I have Win XP Pro SP3.

Will a bluetooth keyboard work then?

after this, I'll still can't link my cellphone to my imac.

how to resolve the situation?

my imac specs are as follows:
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Hardware :: Bluetooth Mouse And Keyboard Don't Work At Same Time

Feb 27, 2009

I have a unibook macbook that I wanted to get a wireless keyboard and mouse for. I love the design of the wireless keyboard so I got that one, but I got the Microsoft bluetooth 5000 mouse instead of the mighty mouse due to a few of the poor reviews floating around.

Anyways, so they both arrived today and I set them up, but I am having the most aggravating problem. When they are both connected at the same time, the mouse is jerky, slow to respond and generally irritating to use due to its sloppy and jerky movement. I ran through lots of troubleshooting steps..

Using the latest MSFT drivers for the mouse=no help

using steermouse = no help

But then things got really weird, so the mouse works PERFECTLY if I disconnect the wireless keyboard from the mac. Not turn it off, just disconnected. So I installed both on another machine thinking that maybe its a bluetooth bandwidth issue, nope, both devices work perfectly on a vista machine. So I grabbed another older bluetooth mouse and paired that with the keyboard on the macbook, THAT mouse works perfectly.

So basically, every other single combination (mouse but no keyboard on the mac, older bluetooth mouse and keyboard on the mac, mouse and keyboard on the vista machine) work except for the one configuration I want (keyboard and new mouse on the macbook).

Software is up to date on the macbook as well. I am about to tear my hair out. My first instinct is just that the drivers are bad on the MSFT mouse for OSX, but remember it works perfectly on the macbook if the keyboard is not connected at the same time, (yet its not a bluetooth bandwidth issue bc it works perfectly with the keyboard on teh vista machine).

Hardware :: Can Bluetooth Mouse / Mice Work For Gaming

Jun 23, 2010

are bluetooth mice responsive enough to use for high speed gaming where precision mouse movement is critical? If so, which ones work best?

Long query:

I bought an iMac a year ago and I really like it. It was my first mac. I got the wireless mighty mouse and the wireless keyboard, but I didn't like them and switched to an old logitech 2-button mouse and I bought the full sized apple keyboard with numpad (wired). This meant I had my mighty mouse and my wireless keyboard sitting around as spare.

I just bought a mac mini server version this past Sunday. I love it. However, it is in my living room and connected to my 60" TV. I attached my old mighty mouse and my wireless keyboard via the bluetooth panel in the system preferences. The mighty mouse is VERY sluggish. I'm not talking about sensitivity. I mean that as I move the mouse, even if I move quickly, the mouse starts off really slow then after maybe half a second it zips along. It also is slow to respond to slow-downs in movement or direction changes. This makes gaming (for example City of Heroes) really painful. It was hard to avoid death because I couldn't quickly react with my characters.

Bottom line ... are bluetooth mice responsive enough to use for high speed gaming where precision mouse movement is critical? If so, which ones work best?

I'm prepared to buy a bluetooth mouse if they can be precise and snappy, but then again the mac mini server is really intended to be a media center, so if the answer is no, then its not a big deal. I can still play City of Heroes and other games fine on my iMac.

MacBook Pro :: Disable The Built-in Bluetooth And Enable A Bluetooth Dongle Instead?

Mar 4, 2008

I have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard that I want to share between a PC and MBP via a DVI/USB KVM switch. I think I can do this by plugging a USB Bluetooth dongle into the KVM's USB input.

If I use the MBP's built-in bluetooth then when I switch from one computer to the other via the KVM, the keyboard and mouse will stay paired with the MBP; but if I disable the built-in hardware then the dongle can provide the bluetooth capability and be switched between the computers.

Intel Mac :: It Connects To One Network But Not The Other?

Mar 12, 2012

Until now I have been connecting to a wifi network that I use at home. It is fairly slow so for large system updates I connect to a wifi dongle.  When this wasn't working last week for the new system update, I came onto the forum and was advised to change the DNS settings for the wifi dongle. It all worked. Since the system update however, my existing network will not connect to the internet at all. It appears in the wifi list but won't connect to the internet. Also, when I started to look for a solution I realize that I do not have Airport as a choice in the wifi list in preferences.
