Hardware :: IPhones Cant Connect To Wifi At Home Even Password Is Also Correct?


I have an AEBS that runs 2 network, one for our laptops (all Mac) and one for our iPhones.Recently (maybe after upgrading the FW) I can?t connect any iPhone 2G, 3G or 4 to our Wifi.They see the network (sometimes), but are asked for password. I get the message wrong password or unable to connect to network.
The password is correct (they used to join automatically) so what is wrong?

MacBook Pro :: WiFi Stopped Accepting Correct Password For AirPort
My 15" MBP 2.4 Penryn, has just suddenly stopped connecting to wireless internet, everything had been working fine, I picked the laptop up to move it to another room and when I woke it up it was asking me for the password for the wifi to my airport extreme. I entered the password and it told me it was incorrect, which it wasn't. My other laptop is working fine and my iPhone is working fine. It appears like the airport card in the laptop has gone a bit funny.

IMac :: Not Connect To Home WiFi Network - Timed Out
Yesterday I got my new iMac 21,5'. After starting it up, the airport would not work. The open network (not password protected) was detected, but every attempt to connect to it ended with a "timed out" error message. I tried to deactivate and reactivate the airport a few times. With no luck. Both my iphone and a cheap netbook would get a valid connection in the meantime. So it's not a network issue.

It's a d-link router and it's about half a meter from the imac. My previous macbook with tiger worked perfectly with this connection. I tried to change the wireless channel from 7 to 6 and this did not solve the issue. Or at least not right away. I tried again after say 15 minutes, and it worked. However, tried again in the morning, and got the "timed out" error message one more time. I have installed the airport software update

OS X :: My MacBook Won't Connect To My Home WiFi Network?
My MacBook, circa 2007, refuses to connect to my home WiFi network, despite having added my MAC address, being WPA encrypted, updated firmware and the like. I haven't had a problem in the last year, until I started taking my laptop to work. It connects to my work wifi network, WPA encryption, and every other network. I have no idea why it wont connect at home. I'm running snow leopard, other macs and PCs at home can connect... It seems I'm missing some odd quirk, I've seen a few threads of similar complaints, but no working resolution. Any ideas? I've wiped out Safari, cleaned all network settings, and it all started once my use shifted predominantly from home to work. Hmpf.

OS X :: Macbook Won't Connect To Home Wifi WEP Protected?
I took my macbook back from uni today as I'm home for easter. I tried to connect to our home network and it asked me for a WEP password. I entered the one my Dad used to set up the connection on his PC. I keep getting a connection timeout and hence it won't connect.I installed windows via boot camp and also tried to connect it that way. I put the password in the same way as my Dad had done on his PC and it said the signal strength was excellent, but the status said little or no connectivity.

PowerPC :: Powerbook G4 Can't Connect To WiFi - Says Password Is Wrong?
I have an old PowerBook G4 which I don't use anymore, due to this problem.I used to run Leopard on it, until it crashed, and I downgraded it to 10.3 (i think.)
Now, I cannot connect to my wifi connection. It reads it, but when I type in the password, (which I assure you is correct) it says that the password is wrong.And when I put in the Leopard install CD (for my macbook) it can't install Leopard, which is obvious, but I can connect to my wifi. How do i fix this wifi problem?

MacBook :: Will Old Titanium Running 10.3 Be Able To Connect To Wifi With A Usb Wifi Antenna?
I have a pretty old Titanium Mac Book that runs OS 10.3.9.  It's a moderately slow machine, but still works-  and although I realize that it won't be able to stream video or anything, I figure it would work for email, and basic web browsing-  But I'm wondering if it's going to be compatible with any new products such as a USB wifi antenna - because the room where I want to use it won't alow for an ethernet connection-   Also, will the old 10.3.9 OS allow me to connect wifi to the newer airport extreme base stations?

MacBook Pro :: WiFi Password Saved Doesn't Match Actual Password?
Long story short, my friend got a new MacBook and needed the WPA2 key for his wifi network. His old PC connected via eithernet wire so he never needed the key. At one point I was at his house and connected to his wireless network, and the password is saved in my mac. I went into System Prefs > Network, and then Airport and selected his network from the list of saved networks. I clicked edit and then checked the box that said "show password" and a very long random string of text came up. It looked something like this: $203e87820e0880c088008e.....etc. I know that is not the password. I'm guessing that I have to somehow "decrypt" that pattern or something to find the REAL password? Or, is there a program or something that can recover the password? I am an Admin, so thats not a problem.

MacBook Pro :: Wifi Takes Many Attempts To Connect...how To Connect In One Attemp
This is a hugely annoying issue, and I can't find a solution to it. I know my way around the networking preferences and wireless configuration in general, and I've tried a lot of tweaks to get this sorted, to no avail.

Unlike a lot of other MBP owners on this forum, my wifi does NOT drop out. Ever. Once it's connected it is as solid as a rock, however getting to that state in the first place is a game in itself.

Basically, after turning the MBP on, reviving from sleep or turning the airport on, the MBP will not connect to it's "known" networks. It finds them OK, even goes as far as suggesting them, but will not automatically connect. The access keys are saved, and even when trying to select the network and connect manually it fails (timeout). The only way to connect seems to be to turn off the airport and turn it back on again. If after 10 seconds of so it does not connect it's not going to, so turn it off and on again. Often I have to do this for 10 minutes or more before it - magically - connects.

I have an account with AT&T Yahoo. After a period of 2-3 days Mail starts rejecting my password. The only way to resolve this is to login to my email through Yahoo's website. Once I do that I can successfully get email through Mail.

Has anyone else experienced this or know how to fix it?

OS X Leopard :: Correct Name And Password Rejected In My System
After logging off our main account, we are not able to log back on. The secondary account is without problems. We have Time Machine back ups and our original OS X Leopard disk. hen trying to log on to the problem account the screen turns blue, then light blue, then returns to the login window. I have tried Kappy's /sbin/fsck -fy, etc. solution, but it didn't solve the problem. We have had problems with an online newpaper wordgame after upgrading Firefox. Firefox was probably still active on the main account when the log off occurred.

MacBook :: 2008 Aluminum Will Not Accept Correct Password At Login
My macbook ran out of battery two days ago. When I restarted it had all my data and files, but the settings had been reset (i.e. my screen saver, dock, expose, etc had all been reset to the original settings). A day later, the macbook froze and I tried to restart it. It now goes to the login page with my user ID but does not accept my correct password. Instead, the rainbow pinwheel spins for a few minutes before the login window shakes and then clears my entered password, as if it does not accept the password. After a few repeated tries, it offered me my password hint. I know my password is the same one I've always used.

Snow Leopard :: SMB Fileshare Refuses To Accept Correct Password
I have a problem with smb filesharing. I enter the correct combination of user name and password but it just wont accept it. I think the problem is rooted in unsupported characters in the username.

Does any one have a way around this, without changing my username?

OS X Leopard :: WiFi Security Outside Home
I'm hoping someone can point me to some reference material giving instructions for securing my laptop when I'm surfing at the local coffee shop. At home we have a secured wireless network, no problems there. I'm concerned about someone hacking into my HD or stealing passwords while I'm out and about. Is there any time while at my local Starbucks when it's safe to access my accounts at bank's web site, or any sensitive site? What about the safety of passwords for less sensitive things like posting on Apple's discussions?

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Find Any WiFi Network At Home
I have a very strange problem with my Macbook Pro. I have 3 apple computers at home and one pc. On all machines WiFi works fine, except my new alu Macbook Pro. Important note is, when im with my macbook on other place, office, caffe, WiFi works fine. But when im at home, this macbook simply can't find ANY network, it's blind. Interesting thing is, all other computers are several years old and WiFi works fine on them. My friend also bought a brand new macbook pro, and this machine also couldn't fine any network at my home, or in other case when it found networks, it couldn't connect and receive error message "Connection timed out". I noticed there is new WiFi network in our range, is it possible that this network can cause "blindness" on new macbooks?

Hardware :: Improving Home WiFi Network Performance
My home WiFi network is currently very unstable. I'm working to improve it and looking for a little advice. This is a little long but I'm trying to provide as much relevant info as possible. First, I have Comcast cable internet performance package (6mbps). My internet speeds vary from about 3-10mbps. I use the Comcast provided cable modem (rented). From the cable modem I run a cable directly into an Airport Express 802.11b/g to create my home wifi network. I have a usb printer attached to the Airport Express for network printing. I have a second Airport Express on the other side of the house used to expand the network and pump music into my home stereo via air tunes.

I use my network for general internet surfing, airtunes streaming to my home stereo, and itunes and bittorrent downloading. No gaming or other speed intensive applications especially within the home network. I have two problems - the internet drops out and requires a reset very often - at least once a day and the airtunes is very unstable. For the internet problem, I thought it was the Comcast internet but I've checked the quality of the cable signal and removed all unnecessary splitters, etc and it still happens. I think the problem is my Airport express. For the Airtunes problem, this clearly seems to be an Airport express problem. I'm thinking of going to a Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g as my primary wireless router and purchasing a cable modem (to save money in the long run over renting.)

Here are my questions:
1) Based on my usage and my current Comcast internet package, my understanding is that 802.11b/g is fine for me. Is this correct? I don't think I need or could benefit from the 300mbps speed of a N network.
2) Can I still use the airport express for airtunes and printing on the Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g network?
3) Regarding the cable modem, is there any advantage to getting a more expensive DOCSIS 3.0 modem such as Motorola SURFboard SB6120? I've read that some people see significant improvements in their speed even if they have a slower internet service.

OS X Leopard :: WIFI Connection Unstable At Work But Perfect At Home
At work we have 4 brand new Nov-Dec 2008 MB Pro's running Leopard 10.5.6.2. All of the exact same specs. All are connected to the same wireless network (Linksys Wireless G). Of these 4 machines, mine and one other are experiencing frequent connection drops. When I say frequent, I mean every 30 seconds. Looking at network setups in System Preferences, I see that my IP is constantly changing to a "self-assigned IP address". Which it should not be doing.

If I turn airport off, wait a few seconds, turn it on again, reconnect, I'll be fine again, but only for about half a minute. Then it reverts to the same issue. Interestingly, my machine works perfectly at home on two other wifi networks (time machine and speedtouch ((which is about 4 years old!)) ). Ethernet connection is 100% stable. Why I say this issue is slightly different to others I have read is because we have a controlled environment, with 4 MBPro's, all of the same spec, and 50% of them share this issue. And that 50% are both perfect on other wifi networks. Surely if it is a wireless router issue, then the other two which are currently working would ALSO have the same issue, as they are of the same spec down to the last motherboard screw?
