MacBook Pro :: Can't Connect To Internet - Using Wireless Modem To Connect To The Netgear Wgt624

Dec 27, 2007

I have a blackbook (intel core 2 duo) and I can connect to my landlord's wireless network (they have a netgear wgt624) but I can't actually use the web (Safari or Firefox will just "think"). I've tested the diagnostics and it confirms that my mac can connect to the network, but it cannot connect to the internet. The network uses WPA personal and it has a 19-aphanumeric passphrase.

*Also - would it be possible for me to extend the wireless range (and make it possible to browse the web) if I used my own 2wire wireless modem to connect to the netgear wgt624?

OS X :: Wireless Broadband - Time Capsule And USB Modem

Jan 17, 2010

I have recently moved house and no longer have access to a DSL / ADSL line but have successfully plugged a wireless USB modem (ZTE MF688+) into my desktop PC. I have a mac book pro and a time capsule which were previously networked but I don't know how to access the internet as there is no DSL cable to plug into the time capsule. Is there any way to use the Time Capsule to access the internet without plugging a DSL / ADSL cable in?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Using Telstra Wireless USB Modem?

Apr 29, 2012

I come to realise that my current telstra USB modem (sierra wireless compass 885) being used with a pc laptop is not directly compatible with OS X 10.7.3. My basic need is to have an internet connection on my Macbook and an ideal situation of being able to network with pc, Apple TV and possibly a backup device such as time capsule.  

So, I figure my options are to either purchase a new compatible USB modem and router,  or purchase a wifi router that will allow me to connect my Mac to the internet wirelessly through the existing pc connection. 

Please advise on the viability of these options, insofar as the likelihood of establishing and maintaining such a network without the need for a fixed line ethernet ADSL type connection. Further to this, I would appreciate any recommendations for suitable modems and routers.

OS X :: Wireless Network Auto Connect

Aug 4, 2009

I recently started having this problem, it just started out of nowhere. Whenever I turn on my iBook, it autoconects to my neighbors network, and not mine. I cannot use their network it's too slow. So now I have to go to the top right and specifically select my wireless network in order to connect to it. There's many networks found on my laptop, and it used to autoconnect to mine. Any way to make the apple automatically connect to my network? The keychain definitely has saved my wireless security password. It just annoying for me to go and click on the wireless icon and select the network everytime i turn my laptop on...

Laptops :: Using Connecting IBook G4 Wirelessly To DSL Modem?

Mar 23, 2010

I recently changed providers and started DSL. I have a modem with built-in wireless capabilities. Set it up for my desktop (wired) and all worked well. My son has an iBook G4 running 10.4.11 - same as my desktop. It has an Airport card in it so we figured he should be able to connect to the modem wirelessly. Set it up and it worked well for one day. Following day it would not connect.

I set up the wireless connection with WPA-PSK selected and channel 9 selected. Made sure the iBook was set the same. When prompted for the password we get an error message stating there is an "error" connecting to the modem. Using the set up assistant for the Airport card yielded no change.

Today we turned off the WPA-PSK and he can connect with no problem. I'm not entirely comfortable with WPA shut off. I read something that implied the password needs to be a certain length to work for some settings - notably WEP. I used an 8 character password for the PSK.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Connect Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Without Nano USB Receiver?

Apr 13, 2012

Being that most Macs have built-in Bluetooth connection capabilities, does anyone know a way to connect 3rd party wireless keyboards & mouses without using the Nano USB receiver? There has to be a way to do it, isn't there? 

Once I have enough money saved up and can afford a wireless Apple Keyboard and Magic Mouse, I'm stuck with the GE setup that I currently have.

OS X :: Using Two Airports At 1 Wireless Modem?

Nov 21, 2009

I have a wireless network set up at my home. I have two laptops that were both working fine on the network at one point. Laptop A still works fine, thus the network is working. Laptop B cannot connect to the internet via this network but the airport connection on that machine is completely full.

In my system preferences > Network Panel I am able to see the green light suggesting that I am connect to the network and that I am also connect to the internet via this airport.

It is also worth noting that the same machine works fine connecting to the internet at my office via the airport there as well as other airport networks.

I am at a loss because the fact that laptop A works on the network rules out the network as the issue and the fact that laptop B works on other wireless network suggests that the settings are correct. Both machines are running the same OS 10.6 ( latest updates)

IMac :: Using Linksys Wireless Modem?

Aug 23, 2010

I currently have an old technology 2-Wire modem and I hear its not the "friendliest" with Macs. Especially when configured in wireless mode. Thus, I'm thinking of replacing our old 2-Wire with new technology Linksys WAG160N modem/router (for my current 10 Megs DSL service).


If you have this Linksys modem/Wireless Router, any good, bad & ugly on it?

OS X :: Gray Screen When Using Usb Modem

Nov 23, 2009

Something strange happened to my Mac, I use a USB modem by Orange il. Mac recognized it with no problem and installed the installation package. After installation when Mac recognized the modem again a gray screen appeared and asked to do Hard Reset. I'm using Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and I had no such problems with it. It happened to me once when I had version 10.5 and changed Drivers for usb to use Dfu. I checked the computer, and to be sure I downloaded the new drivers and reinstall it and it still happens when I insert the modem. As soon as I uninstall the modem I can insert it without a problem until I install the drivers and then this Crash happens again.
