Applications :: No Preferred Networks Available On MacBook?
I've been having lots of problems with my network lately I had to reset it. But since then my Macbook will not remember it as a preferred network. (At least I think thats what the problem is.) When I open the lid my computer wakes up and then I get the popup message (look at picture 1) then I have to click on my network which is called linda. Then my the space to write my password is already filled (see picture 2), I have to click JOIN and only then I can go online. But I've had to do these steps at least 10 times a day for the past month and now im sick of it!

OS X Tiger :: How To Delete Preferred AirPort Networks In 10.4.11
My computer is automatically logging on to a neighbor's Airport network (not password-protected). When I open my Network control panel and select Airport, the "By default, join:" popup is grayed out. How can I activate it so I can delete my neighbor's network from the list?

MacBook Air :: How To Reset Preferred Networks
My new Air hunts for our home network and always returns a box in which I have to select the network because "none of your preferred networks is available". Is there a way to reset this so that it can recognize our network as a preferred network?

MacBook Air :: Connection Lost - No Preferred Networks
I have tried connecting my MBA to my Time Capsule with 802.11 n only at 5 GHZ setting. Every other time I have tried to connect to the internet I lose my connection to my network. Either I get a message stating that there are no preferred networks or I see my network and my password does not work. I then have to close the lid of my MBA and then open it. I am back on my network. I have no problems with my new iMac or my girlfriend's Macbook Pro.

MacBook Air :: AirPort Does Not Recognize Preferred Networks
I just got a new Macbook air and I used system preferences to set my preferred wireless networks and I only have one network on my preferred list. It has WEP password and I have entered the password and got connected to the network. When I put my computer to sleep, and back on, sometimes it connects to my preferred network automatically and some times it finds the network but asks me whether to connect to it however it remembers the password I entered before. When I tick connect, it connects to the network. Why does it doesn't recognize it at some times? Also sometimes when I put the computer to sleep for a while and then I try to open it, I find the battery empty and also the date is lost!

MacBook Aluminum :: Cannot Automatically Connect To Preferred Networks
I got my MacBook (alum.) about 2 weeks ago and at first it connected to my preferred networks automatically upon reboot or wake up from sleep fine. But now It wont. I need to manually go into my network (or airport) settings and select my network from the drop menu.

The Equipment:
I'm using a Linksys WRT160N with a WPA Personal Encryption. Like I said, it worked fine before when I first got it. (All the windows computers in my house auto connect fine so I have narrowed it down to my macbook being the only one that has had any problems)

The Attempted Solutions: Which have failed
I've tried to research the problem for the last week or so before starting a new thread but I turned up with nothing more the threads that ended with no solution to my current situation. It's very annoying as you could imagine.
-I've tried to delete the network from my preferred list and also delete it's password from my keychain.
-I've tried setting the router to factory defaults.
-Also tried using a different router (at school, friends house, library etc.)

OS X Leopard :: No Automatic Connection - Preferred Networks Pane Blank
I began with a problem that my Mac would not automatically connect to the router. Following advise in another thread, I deleted the preferred networks, so the Mac could 'rediscover' them. On restarting the Mac, there was no automatic connection. However, it found my network. When I attempted to connect, I got the message 'Connection Timeout', but when I then clicked on 'cancel' it then connected anyway. However, going into the Preferred Networks pane, there are none listed, even though (as you can tell) I am connected.

OS X Leopard :: After Security Update No Automated Connection To Preferred Networks

OS X Leopard :: Preferred Networks And Airport Extreme Dual Band?
I have made a list of preferred networks, but it doesnt seem to work. I bought a new Airport Extreme with dual band. We have two networks set up one 2.5 and one 5 Ghz. I want the Macs to connect to the 5 Ghz as this is the fastest network. However, they connect to the 2.5 Ghz even tho I have put the 5 Ghz network on top of the preferred networks list. I can select and connect to the 5 Ghz, no problem, but once I restart it connects to the 2.5 Ghz again?

MacBook Aluminum :: Bluetooth And WiFi Unable To Connect / None Of Your Preferred Networks Are Available
I have a late 2008 2.4Ghz macbook connecting to a dlink dir-655 router with WPA2 encryption. Up till now I had my bluetooth hardware turned off because I had very little use for it until I got a bluetooth mouse. I leave it on all the time now and started noticing problems connecting to my router coming back from sleep or a power on.

I get the "None of your preferred networks are available" warning and have to select my router by hand to get it connected. Once connected, everything works great until I reboot or take it out of sleep mode again. If I turn the bluetooth hardware off, my router is found immediately everytime.

IMac Intel :: Trying To Monitor WiFi Networks Info
I've noticed a weird issue with my new 27" iMac. I'm trying to monitor my wifi networks using the Wifi Radar and iStat Pro widgets, however nothing is showing up on either. Wifi Radar does not see my network and iStat doesn't show any throughput. Activity Monitor displays the information correctly but the others do not. I thought this might be a Snow Leopard issue but they work fine on my MacBook. Maybe it's just a software issue with the new iMacs?

IMac Intel :: Airport Won't Pick Up Any Networks After Sleep
The airport on my new iMac sometimes will not pick up any networks after I wake it from sleep. There is usually about 10+ wireless routers it shows since i live in an apartment, but after I wake it it will not find my router or any others in the building. I have to restart the computer and then it finally will connect to my router and show the others.

IMac Intel :: Finding Useful Book On Home Or Small Business Wireless Networks?
What I would like to get hold of is a book that deals with home/small business wireless networking.
I looked on Amazon at the "Wireless home networking for dummies" book, which gets mixed reviews, and perhaps may be what I want.

I don't honestly know that we need a network here in this office, other than we have a Mac and one pc, and share a wireless connexion. We were going to share a printer/all in one, but this did not work well, so I am just going to get one for my own use. Then there will be two printers/all in ones, and two(perhaps three) computers, I will have my own, and the pc(s) can share one. Then the only thing that we will share is the wireless connexion.

In this case, I don't know that we will need any network at all .

However, will someone(s) recommend a decent book on this subject anyway?

I would like to begin to have a wireless connexion of Macs at home.

Intel Mac :: Unable To Create 2 Networks?
Here on my office we have 3 macs, 1 wireless router and 1 gigabit lan switch.My wireless router only have 100mbps ports and I need a little more speed on my network.So I want to use my wireless router only as internet via Airport and my gigabit lan as file sharing via gigabit connection. I can disable the network features on my wireless router so the macs can't see each other on the wireless connection.The problem is that i can't make them work on the gigabit switch. I need to put some static ips on the macs and I don't know what to put on the default gateway because the gigabit switch doesn't have an IP, its a SWITCH 08P 10/100/1000 D-LINK DGS-1008D. what ips and gateways should I put on my network connection? PS: I tried putting my wireless router via cable on my gigabit switch but it limited my gigabit switch to 100mbps and started to slow my network traffic.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: IMac After 10.7.4 Can't Find Any Networks
I just upgraded my iMac to 10.7.4, and now my wireless connection has started acting really strange. After a very short time of use, my iMac just becomes incapable of finding any network connections -- notice not just my own wireless station, any wireless connection in the area. If I restart it, then I'll be able to connect for a short while but then shortly after, the problem returns. It is extremely annoying. Also, I have both a Macbook Air, an iPhone and an iPad, and I'm having no problems finding my own network and other networks on those.

PowerPC :: Airport Card Doesn't See ANY Networks - 400Mhz G3 IMac DV
Just installed one of the original airport cards in this machine, and though all indications are that it is working correctly, it doesn't see the USR wireless router sitting 10 feet from it. No networks show up in the dropdown list, and manually adding does nothing. Encryption is a simple MAC filter (this card has already been added), and SSID is broadcast. Did I get a bad card? System profiler seems to think it's fine.

It's an original airport card.
Computer's a G3 400 Mhz iMac.
A G3 300 Mhz iBook with original airport card is having no troubles.
Firmware of Airport card is 9.52
Firware of router is up to date.
OSX 10.3.9

All help greatly appreciated; this is my moms little computer, and we're trying to rearrange and loose some wires.

MacBook Pro :: (17" 2.4 Intel) - Wifi Networks Forgotten After Sleep/restarts?
I made the mistake of upgrading (funny word for what I got) to Lion, and ever since, I've had numerous issues with my trusty MacBookPro (2008, 2.4 ghz, 17").  The latest problem has been severly annoying though, and I just would like to see if any of you have some tips I could try out.  Basically, every single time I close down the lid to put my computer to sleep, or even after it goes to sleep on it's own, when I go to wake my computer, it no longer is connected to my wi-fi network, and for a period of 2-5 minutes, is acts like it is searching for networks.  When this exercise is over, I can use the pull down menu brought up by clicking on the wifi icon to select my network and the computer re-connects.  I saw that Apple released an update for 2011 MacBookPro's that had this same issue, and this made the problem even more irritating to me since they failed to address those of us who have older computers that have the same issue.  I have tried erasing all known network in the network preferences window using the plus and minus buttons, and then re-adding my network.  That didn't work.

OS X :: Preferred Language Change All The Time
you would be kind enough to perform the following test and tell me what result you get (it should take five minutes)?

1) login to MyInfo page: [URL]
2) select "Contact Prefs" and set "Preferred Language" to a language different from your country default language
3) Logout (very important)
4) starts iTunes, go in the iTunes Store and connect to view your account (click on your AppleID in the top right corner)
5) select "Edit Payment Information"
6) change nothing, just press Done twice to go back to the iTunes Store
7) login to MyInfo page again:[URL]
8) check if Contact Prefs->Preferred Language was set to your country default
9) come back to this thread and report the result (with your country)

In my case (from Switzerland iTunes Store) my Preferred Language is reset to German each time and it is quite annoying. I've tried to report this to the iTunes Support, but their answer was something like: "we need to test your account." And after having done that:we're happy to tell you that your preferred language is now set to English." Not very useful as you can see.

OS X :: Preferred Font Smoothing Style Setting?
If you go into System Preferences>Appearance>Font Smoothing Style, You'll see a drop down menu with different choices. I think the best looking font smoothing type is "Standard - best for CRT". I've tried all the other styles and they don't look good to me. I think the other styles look too sharp, too bold and I don't like colored pixels around the edge of my text.

By the way, in Snow Leopard, there's only 2 options now. It's just a checkbox that says: [ ] LCD Font Smoothing. When checked, it acts like "Medium - best for flat panel" and when unchecked it acts like "Standard - best for CRT". What is your favorite font smoothing style? For changes to take effect, you have to quit and relaunch your apps to see the difference.

Applications :: Preferred Audio Players 2010
This is going to be a series of threads/polls with the main objective of finding out what applications the members of MacRumors use. These threads/polls are not meant for discussion on whether or not one application is better than another or to ask any questions about these particular applications. It's only purpose is to discuss what application you use (or don't use) as it pertains to the topic. The goal is to collect these series of threads in the end and compile a list of all the polls so that members can view what the members of MacRumors use most often. The applications listed in the poll are by no means definitive and/or complete. If you use another application, vote Other and post the name so others can look into it. Even if you don't use any of the applications listed, you can simply click None. I've tried to list as many applications as I could find for the particular topic. Some are paid, some are free. Some cover all versions of OS X, others only a few versions.

This particular thread focuses on Audio Players for OS X. While iTunes is probably used by many due to the iPod and iPhone, it certainly isn't the only application out there to listen to music. So what audio player do you use for your music?
