Hardware :: Internet Speed Through My Airport Express Slows Down About Half The Speed

Apr 10, 2009

I have a WDS local network at my house. I use a Airport Extreme in my main part of the house and a Airport Express for my back part of the house i.e. the backyard. Now every two weeks or so my internet speed through my Airport Express slows down about half the speed but when I am connected trough the Airport Extreme my speed is normal. I know this because I test my connection very often. Now when I want the Airport Express to get back up to speed I have to unplug, and plug it back in. Then after awhile it starts to slow down again in a time period of two weeks or so.

Hardware :: Airport Express Splitting Bandwidth / Resulting Slow Internet Speed

Mar 7, 2010

I'm using a new AirPort Express updated with the latest firmware and AirPort Utility and both my roommate and I have been banging our heads against the wall. Speed to the APE is 130 Mbit/sec and both of our computers are connected to the APE just fine.

This is what the ping looks like. Ping has started ...

When I did a speakeasy test, it turned out that I am getting exactly half of our allotted bandwidth. Is there a way to configure this APE to act more like a router that truly shares a connection rather than a splitter that's cutting it in half? Any help would be much appreciated as I'm getting download speeds of 7kb/s and it takes around 15 seconds to load google!!

Hardware :: Setting Up Airport Express Through Airport Extreme?

Mar 9, 2010

I currently have the apple extreme as my wireless router. It works great. I absolutely love it. I have two macbook pro's (wife and I both have one) and use it for my PS3 and Xbox 360. I started a new job and was given a free HP desktop (not my choice, but hey, it's free, so what can I say). The desktop is not wireless and I am not able to put my computer near the airport extreme because my TV already owns that territory. Today I bought the Airport express to use as a bridge (and other things in the future). I have plugged it in. I opened the airport utility using my macbook. It finds my extreme and my express. I select that I want to set up the express. I select that I want to set it up using an existing wireless network. I select my airport extreme. It tells me that it has to restart the express. I wait approximately 3 minutes. It then tells me that the settings to the express have been changed but it's not able to find it.

My main goal is to use the express as a bridge. I have the express plugged in beside the desktop and want to run an ethernet cable from the express to the desktop to allow for wireless capability.

Hardware :: AirPort Express WDS - Setting Up Network?

May 15, 2010

I've come home from college for the summer and set up my PC and iMac in my bedroom. However, the wireless signal from the router in the basement (a cisco m10 wireless n router) is very weak and cuts out frequently. I have an Airport Express and was hoping to use it as a wireless repeater/range extender, but can't seem to figure it out. I know there is no "official support" for use as a repeater with non-Apple routers, but is there a way around this? If so, how can I set up my network?

Hardware :: Setting Up Network With Airport Express (2009)?

Jul 4, 2009

I just purchased my new Airport Extreme (draft-n) and setup was relatively easy when building a simple network. However, after discovering that the Extreme cannot cover the whole house, I've been wanting to use my old Asus WL-530g router as a base and the Extreme to extend the network, or vice versa.

I've tried using the Extreme as the extender to the Asus's network but it gives me this message: "You cannot extend this network"

What can be the problem?

Are there any alternative ways to extend a network?

Can I use the Asus itself to extend the Airport network?

Hardware :: Very Slow Speed When Using AirPort Express

Jun 25, 2009

I recently moved, and I transferred my comcast high-speed internet service. At my old residence, I used my airport express base station (802.11b/g) with my cable modem, and the internet was quite fast. At my new residence, I set up my network and the speed is quite slow. I initially attributed the problem to Comcast and spent more than an hour on the phone with them this morning. However, I discovered that when I plugged my MBP directly into the cable modem, the internet was blazing fast. So the problem seems to be with the Airport Express.

I'm thinking about just upgrading to an extreme, but I wanted to ask people in the forum to make sure there's not some obvious thing I'm missing so I don't waste my money. I don't really understand why my Airport Express would suddenly become very slow when it was working fine last week, but I don't know how else to explain this problem. I checked my speed using speedtest.net. It measured my download speed as 0.79 Mb/s when connected to airport, and approximately 15.5 Mb/s when connected directly to the cable modem. That's a nearly 20-fold difference!

Hardware :: How To Maximize Speed With AirPort Express

I have the new Airport Express Base Station and am working it with my Embarq DSL modem. All my Macs are pre-intel based, iMac G5 and iBook G4. I am not getting the DSL speeds I am supposed to be getting. What procedures should I go through with my Airport and Computers to make sure I am getting the maximum download and upload speed possible?

Hardware :: AirPort Express Speed - Direct Wiring To Router

Aug 9, 2009

My current set up includes a cable modem to a Linksys wired router, to an Xbox 360, PS3 and Airport Express. This is the set up I have had for about three months. When downloading files or streaming videos the download speed rarely settles in more than 200 kb/s. My old place had a DSL model, which had a slower internet connection, but the airport express speeds (same set up) were much faster. I have tried directly wiring the computer to the router which unsurprising, resulted in much higher speeds. The things I can think it could be:

1. A lot of wireless networks in the vicinity.
2. Airport express just not up to streaming at height 802.11n speeds, although it is rated for them.
3. Attached to a slower port on the router.

Hardware :: Airport Express Allow Internet Access (Free)

Apr 21, 2009

I will be going on vacation in a couple weeks and would like to take my Macbook Pro with me. The only problem I have is the hotel I am staying at charges for WiFi everyday. I would like access to the internet, but I don't feel like paying the money for their WiFi service. If I purchased Airport Express, would I be able to get internet access without having to pay for their fee? I already own Airport Extreme, so buying Express would be worth it for me anyways, I just would like to know if Express could allow me internet access without paying the hotel's fee.

Software :: Using Airport Extreme And Express - Fixing Internet?

Nov 14, 2009

I have just bought an Airport Extreme and Airport express, as I have quite a large house, so needed to boost the signal (plus its quite a remote area, dont get mobile signal, etc).

I have Airport Extreme connected to the Satellite broadband modem by ethernet cable.. has a green light on and is working and connected fine to my macbook air downstairs..

I have also set up the Airport Express upstairs, which is about 30 ft from the Airport Extreme box (wirelessly) - the airport express is also showing a green light.

The iMac that I have is in a bedroom upstairs and is about 18ft from the Airport Express.. however the signal on my imac is only showing 1 bar on the airport icon on my toolbar on my mac? I was using it for a short while, then I had a message saying I wasnt connected??

Surely the iMac should be picking up the express that is only about 18ft away???

when I check under 'Utilties' and Airport, it is showing the Aiport Extreme and Express on my computer, both showing a green light (that was when I had a faint signal).. It sounds as though, my imac is picking the signal maybe from the extreme downstairs??

Hardware :: Airport Express 802.11n - Accessing USB Hard Disk Over Internet?

Apr 26, 2007

I can not find documentation ANYWHERE that explains - specifically - how to configure my Airport Extreme to access the attached USB hard drive from the internet. Has anyone successfully done this? I would like to type in an address and have it go directly to the drive. I think I've done everything in the airport utility that I'm supposed to do, and I've set up a dynamic dns account and opened up port 80.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme (Wireless N) Join Express Connected To Internet?

Mar 22, 2010

I have an Airport Extreme Wireless N router (the previous rev that does not have guest network), and an Airport Express Wireless N. My cable modem is, unfortunately, not in the same place where I need my router, since I want to hook my desktop, ethernet printer, and other devices up to the airport extreme router. So, is it possible for me to hook my cable modem up to the Airport Extreme via ethernet, and then somehow connect my Airport Express router to that to get out to the net? I want my laptop to join the router, not the Airport Express, so I can gain access to my printer and files on my server hooked up to that router while still maintaining an internet connection.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change A User's Stack Memory Limit Setting?

May 1, 2012

Is there any way that the default stack memory limit for a user in Mac OS X Lion?  You can you ulimit in Terminal.app to display information, you cannot change any values. 

This is what is returned from ulimit when you try to change the stack memory size. 

user@MacbookPro:~$ ulimit -s 81920

-bash: ulimit: stack size: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted 

Also, the default value is 8192KB which is approx. 8MB.  That is weak, especially on my 2011 iMac with 16GB of RAM.  I mainly do scientific programming on my Mac (Fortran).  These programs usually require a larger stack size.  One option is to allocate data to the heap but that is very slow.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Not Forwarding Airdisk To Connected Airport Express Network?

Apr 25, 2010

I have an Airport Extreme, with two USB hard drives connected to it. The Airport Extreme shares these disks to my wireless network via Airport Disks.

Upstairs I have an Airport Express, that wirelessly connects to my Airport Extreme downstairs, and extends the wireless network so I get a good wireless reception upstairs.

My problem is, that it does not seem like me Airport Express does a good job of forwarding my 2 USB Airport Disks to the extended wireless network upstairs.

For example, when I use the AirVideo iPhone app to stream video from my USB Airport Disks I get a server connection error when I go upstairs and the iPad/iPhone switches to the Airport Express networks. I cannot reconnect as long as it is on the Airport Express network. If I turn the airport Express off, and thus switch to the poor wireless reception from the Airport Extreme, I can connect to the USB Airport disks again.

The Airport Express is connected to the Airport Extreme in bridged mode.
