Intel Mac :: Constant Wifi Drop & Disconnect?

Mar 9, 2012

My one month old iMac does not maintain an interent connection for very long. Sometimes it stays connected for <maybe> an hour, but  MORE often it drops either the wifi signal all together or just stops connecting to the internet... when it does seem to have a connection it is VERY slow.  

My solution: turn off Wifi wait a few seconds and turn it back on... which is very annoying, but that fixes it.  

I have the latest software across the board. I'm running wifi on Time machine. My signal is strong. I have a Powerbook and iPad that connects to it without issues (for a couple of years its been fine until this iMac problem).

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

MacBook Pro :: Wifi Reception Is Terrible / Constant Wifi Dropouts?

Apr 27, 2010

My 2010 15" MBP has constant Wifi dropouts, sometimes minutes at a time. Sometimes I have to reconnect. Yet it gets 4 bars. My MacBook never had these problems. It's generally slower, too. It's now useless for online video like Hulu. Anyone else seeing this? I wonder whether it's hardware (e.g. they moved the antenna, and/or because of the metal case) or software/drivers? I'm going to submit feedback after input from ya'll.

Intel Mac :: Continue To Drop WiFi Connection Running OS X 10.7.4?

Jun 28, 2012

Why does my iMac continue to loose wifi connection? My PC setting right next to it does not have the problem. I'm trying to do the switch to iMac but having a tough time. My 1986 DOS PC with 20 Meg hard drive sure was simpler.

OS X Yosemite :: WiFi Disconnect Every 2-3 Minutes?

Dec 2, 2014

I recently around 3-4 weeks ago update my Mac Book Pro to the new Yosemite software and everything was going fine until I got onto my internet! i was connected to my home wifi and everything was fine! Click into something and said I wasn't connected..! I looked up to see the wifi had disconnected! So i thought it was just a fault in my wifi modem, i manually clicked my wifi again it connected. It wasn't until after the 6th time it happened that i realised it wasn't my network and that it was my laptop! now everytime im watching a movie online or youtube its get disconnected and I have to continuously manually connect to my network! This happens every 2-3 minutes and had been frequent since I have updated! It's super annoying as it interfers with my regular web surfing and have looked for and tried so many things to fix it and nothing seems to work!

OS X Yosemite :: WiFi Will Drop At Random On IMac

Dec 1, 2014

I have an iMac late 2012. Since upgrading the OS to Yosemite,  I have had random drops in my wifi. I have already tried 'forgetting the network' and Deleting the system config stuff. I still get this random drop. My computer is unreliable. Dropping during an online exam is bs because it screws everything up. 

I have never experienced Wifi drops in my life and I am starting to get annoyed with this. 

My keyboard and mouse is using bluetooth... Does that have something to do with it? Should I just install and use Windows instead?

Intel Mac :: Constant And Interpretive Double Clicking?

Apr 29, 2012

I have an iMac 21,5 purchased in October 2011. My clicks have gone mad for 2 or 3 days now. It came out of the blue. Whenever I click, it acts like a double click. I've been looking for information on internet but I couldn't find anything conclusive.I have tried a trick in the System Preferences > Mouse > Double click speed, but it hasn't changed anything (I can go extreme slow or quick, same thing happens). 

I have a Magic Mouse, a random and ultra super plain Logitech mouse (wired) and a common wireless Logitech mouse; the problem is the same for all mice. I also tried my roomate's mouse, and it does the same thing. 

when I delete email I delete 2 of them. Opening a new tab? Here you go 4 of them. Clicking on a document? Oh no you can't rename it and it opens. Have an important text to type? it's impossible de move the cursor without selecting an entire word or phrase or row. It took me 3 hours to clic on "Categories - Using your iMac Intel" because the box was instantly checked-unchecked.

Intel Mac :: Making Constant Buzzing/humming Noise?

May 6, 2012

I purchased a 21" iMac a couple of months ago. Today it started making constant buzzing/humming noise. It's not really loud, but it is noticeable and annoying after a while. It stops if I put the computer in sleep mode or turn it off, but it starts back up  the moment I turn it back on again. It sounds like it is coming from the bottom of the screen near the speakers. I have tried adjusting the brightness and volume, but to no avail. I also tried lifting the computer off the desk to see if it was just vibration, but that did not make a difference either.

Intel Mac :: Constant Kernal Crashes After 8 Gig RAM Card Added

Jun 9, 2012

I have a mid 2010 27" iMac and just added 16 gig of new ram (first two slots came with 2 gig each and I bought and had installed two more 8 gig - so I can run Final Cut Pro X) Well, after the new RAM was installed by an apple certified dealer - it kernel crashed about 5 times randomly, which it had never done before - It was obvious it was caused by the new RAM - I took it back and they replaced it - and it has now kernal crashed 6 times - Are 8 Gig Ram cards not compatible with 2010 imacs? These guys seem like they know what they are doing - but enough is enough - I know in Apple's literature they mention that only 2 and 4 gig upgrades are possible - but they said the 8 gigs just came out

Intel Mac :: Constant Printer Paper Jam After Installing Office

Jun 24, 2012

This now happens for any document, not only office documents. It appears the iMac regards the printer as ready and waiting, but the printer keeps looping the same page and the paper jams every time. After getting the paper out, the printer re-starts the same page again - with a new paper jam as result.

The printer is a Samsung CLP315 colour laser printer, connected through USB.

Only "solution" is to get the paper out and then quickly turn the printer off, and start it again to print a new page. I have an iMac 21", bought in May last year (the then new generation).iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Intel Mac :: Login Goes To White Screen And Then Back - Constant Cycle

Jun 3, 2012

When I turn my computer on, a gray bar must be filled (takes about 20 mins) before it goes to the login page. Then, when I log in with the corrct password, the screen abruptly turns white like the startup white page for about 5-10 seconds (time varies each time) and then goes back to the login page where it will happen again and again. This all started when I banged my mouse and it stopped working and I held down the power button to turn off the computer and then hit it again to turn it on.

IMac (Intel) :: Installed SSD / Constant Fans / No HDD Temp Sensor

Dec 10, 2014

I've recently installed a Crucial M500 512 GB SSD into my 21.5" 2011 iMac. I've done this to quite a few iMacs, and am well aware that some have a temperature sensor on the factory-installed hard drive. This one, however, did not, and now that the SSD is installed, I'm getting constantly running fans. 

The fans run whether it's booted from the internal SSD, an external FireWire HD, or even if it's sitting in Target Disk Mode or on the Boot Options screen, so I feel like it's hardware-related.

Intel Mac :: Can't Drag And Drop To Move Photos?

May 26, 2012

So I've just about run out of memory on my MAC, actually, I have!  I was able to delete some things and it's already functioning much better.  What is taking up so much space are my photos.  I have an external drive I would like to move them all to and everything I look up says it's as easy as a drag and drop. The only problem is I'm unable to drag and drop. Nothing at all happens when I try to do that. I've tried it off of Finder with just one item and nothing will move at all.

Intel Mac :: Sudden Drop In Internet Speed / Page Loading

Feb 8, 2012

My iMac has just gotten all grumpy and weird with me, when attempting to browse anything on the internet (or even trying to access the router via 192.168.1.1) everything is ridiculously slow or just doesn't load. At first the speed went down dramatically - i went on speedtest.net and did a test, the page took a good 5 mins to load and after the test it turned out that i had a speed of 0.2 Mbps (my average speed on a good day is about 2.5 Mbps, shocking i know!) Ive tried turning the computer off and restarting it to no avail. Im doing this on my Macbook Pro which is sat next to the iMac and with a speed test is coming up with speed of about 2.2 Mbps, so its clearly the machine and not the internet/router. Ive tried using Safari, Chrome and Firefox they all provide the same, unusably slow responces.
