Hardware :: IPhones Cant Connect To Wifi At Home Even Password Is Also Correct?
Sep 8, 2010
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?
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.
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.
I can see my neighbors network but it doesn't even show my home network.¬† Both iPhones are connected and working fine, our blu ray player is linked and getting good signal.... One day it just happened to not be there and it won't find it anymore.¬† I have the Medialink n-router. I haven't changed any router settings...
I Did a software update on my iMac to OS X 10.9.3 and now it won't connect to my home wifi. I've reset the modem and I still have access on my phone and TV to the wifi.¬† But when I type in the password of my wifi it says incorrect when it's the right password. It also won't connect to open wifi next works.
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
i upgraded my Netgear DG834PN router to the latest firmware and changed the security to WPA2 encryption and ever since then my MBP doesn't snap back on to the WiFi automatically? when selected manually, it connects fine, just not automatically after sleep or being away from the house?
I have a macBook pro, running Yosemite, and cannot connect to 5GHz on my dual band bt home hub.¬† Keeps saying 'invalid password' even though it is correct.¬† I have given the 2GHz and 5GHz separate names and passwords and can now connect to 2GHz without dropping al the time, but am frustrated re 5GHZ.¬† Even when stood next to the router it will not connect or recognise password.

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?
I am using at home an iMac connected ( with cable ) to my Home WiFi Router. All other products are using the same WIfI home network ( Without a cable ).Can I define my iMac to use ONLY MY HOME WIFI instead of other unwanted wifi networks ?
I keep getting the annoying window that says "Enter Password for account "Mobile Me"- I'm certain the password is correct!¬†I have even deled the email account and added it in, and still cannot get it to work
I cannot sign in to app store with correct ID and password. I am hundred percent sure that they're correct. I've tried like srsly more than 20 times but it's not working. There is no problem with internet connection.
Something is wrong with my mail client. Even though I am 100% certain that the password is correct (I get mail on my iPhone and when I log onto iCloud site), my mail will not accept the password. I've tried even to delete the account and set it up again, but that doesn't work either.
My email keeps saying MobileMe server "mail.me.com" rejected the password ... but I have not changed my password. It does the same thing with smtp.. how do i fix this? My password works when i sign into icloud itunes and everything.
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?¬†
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. ¬†

My son is using my old macbook pro 13-inch and he went to login using the correct security info but keeps getting denied. and clicking the question mark only leads to the computer recommending the very same password that he is using with no other options to request a change password option. the computer may still be running mountain lion, though possibly mavericks. definitely not yosemite.

My mail has been working fine on my mail app on my macbook pro... until recently. Its repeatedly prompting me for my password and then says it is incorrect and to try again. Upon going on the actual mail website and doing an online sign in I have realised that the password is infact correct. How can i resolve this. Additionally, its also happening on my iphone which is why I know its something I need to alter with my apple products.¬†
been trying to log onto airport with my pismo at work. log in attempt pops up a window claiming that my password is wrong...but system admin says and demonstrates it isn't with other laptops...plus, I can log into non-password protected wifi in the building no problem...what's going on? I tossed all my internet pref files...still same issue...
I don't know what's wrong with it.My ipod touch connects just fine and yet when i try to connect my new macbook it won't allow me to connect.I've never owned a macbook - so i have no idea how to fix this.
I currently have the network setup assistant running and configuring - but it's been about an hour and it hasn't done anything.Is there something else i need to do?
When i'm about and about during my day it is very tough to get WiFi, or at least to connect to it and get online.
@ my friends house I can't go online, even though i have this password and says connected. I've tried using diagnostics but in the end am not connected. @ another friends house the same situation. @ Starbucks and McDonalds it won't connect as well....but at home it always connects.
It is on my home network which I have been using for months.† I have made no changes to my router or network setting. Other devices will still connect to the wifi with no problem and I connect through the ethernet connection with no problem.† I have disabled the wifi and restarted my computer with no luck.
I have a Wireless network in my home using an Airport Base Station Extreme. The odd problem I have is for months my computer, a MBP, would stay logged onto it. I could have my computer in sleep mode and come to it in the morning and it would turn on and be logged on.
Now whenever my computer seems to go into sleep mode it either loses the wi-fi or it won't log onto it when it comes out of sleep mode. This never happened. I had some problems with my Airport Base Station Extreme after doing a firmware update so had to set up my home network again. I thought this was part of it but even removed the network from my MBP and set it up again and the same problem.
