MacBook :: Will Old Titanium Running 10.3 Be Able To Connect To Wifi With A Usb Wifi Antenna?

Mar 7, 2012

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?

MacBook Pro :: It Cannot Connect To Wifi But Will Connect Through Ethernet

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.

MacBook :: How To Connect Wifi

Sep 16, 2009

I have the original 1st generation Core Duo MacBook, and I'm having some trouble with the wifi. Often, when I go to a new location like to a library or a friend's house, I won't be able to connect to the wifi (it will timeout) or it will connect, but the signal strength will be very weak or the internet will be very slow.

It's not that it's out of range, I'm in an area that's known to have wifi and others around me can pick it up fine with full strength. At home, my wifi works fine, but the router is in the same room I use the computer in.

MacBook Pro :: Wifi Won't Connect To Anything

Feb 29, 2012

My Macbook Pro has been great since I got it last June.  Recently I just did an software update that I believe included something with the wifi/airport setting.  Now I cannot connect to ANYTHING.  My work wifi network I can connect with my iPhone and others have connected to my "puck" wifi from CLEAR.  I have ruled out that the connections I am trying to connect to are the problem.  When I try to connect with my MBP I it tries and then gets greyed out in the top with the exclamation point.  It says: 

Alert: No Internet Connection 

When I have tried to "fix" using the normal processes when clicking on it it says it cannot help me.  I have researched and cleared the network settings in the keychain access.  There was another thing that said to delete the apps.apple.alf.pfile or something like that but when I went to the area in Library/Preferences that file didnt exist.  I need my Macbook to access the Internet. 

I am running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 It is a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3

MacBook Air :: It Won't Connect To Wifi

Apr 4, 2012

I have a MacBook Air that is refusing to connect to the home network. The MacBook is a late 2011 model 3,1 core 2 duo, 4Gb RAM 128Gb SSD connecting to a virgin media super hub. Tried the hub with and without enabled security. Sometime the MacBook sees the hub when you try to connect it immediately errors with could not join..... A network timeout occurred.  The Bluetooth seems to be just as flaky. Won't connect to my iPhone?Thinking the wifi/Bluetooth card may be dodgy.

MacBook Air :: Can Connect To Wifi On 801.11g Only?

May 31, 2012

I have a MacBook Air. WIFI has been working just fine, until yesterday, after I turned it off to use a LAN network via USB adapter. Ever since I have not been able to reconnect via WIFI, and I get the message (that a lot of people get) of "wifi has the sel-assigned IP address and will not connect to the Internet." I've tried restart, shut-down and wait, tossed preferences, removed preferred networks, renewed DHCP Lease, all repeatedly, but to no avail. 

the strange thing was, today I was somewhere that had 801.11g and 801.11n networks, and I was able to connect on the g network, but not on n. And what was more strange, was that the same Ethernet Lan connection I used yesterday no longer allows me to connect to the Internet, even though the sidebar says Ethernet was connected and showed green light. 

At the same time my iPhone and iPad can both connect to any of the networks.

MacBook Pro :: It Can't Connect To WiFi

Jun 13, 2012

Just bought my daughter a 13.6" 2.4 GHz MacBook Pro, and it connects fine to my Apple TimeCapsule in 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz mode with no issues using DHCP. However, when my daughter brings the laptop to her mother's house, and attempts to connect it to her Cisco 2Wire160 (802.11g using WEP) router with DHCP, it doesn't connect. She can select the router, but it doesn't prompt for a password.

When she goes into System Preferences -> Network, WiFi say something about a self-assigned IP address of 169.x.x.x., when that router is chosen.

If I have her delete the router from Advanced in the Preferred Network section, and then connect to any of the neighbor's routers, she's immediately prompted for a password. Attempting to re-connect to the 2Wire160, still doesn't prompt for a password.

Well I've had mine for about 3 yrs now and this problem with airport wifi connection has progressively been getting worse over the last yr. I took the MacBook in last week and they wanted �170 to put in a new network card and antena. Bit much I think.! So they told me I could buy a �35 USB wifi dongle thing.

MacBook Pro :: 10.7.3 Won't Connect To Schools Wifi

Mar 13, 2012

Yesterday I purchased a new Macbook Pro and brought it to use on campus today and although the wireless status bar said I was connected I wasn't able to navigate the internet. It would sometimes prompt me to enter my atlas login information but after clicking submit wouldn't do anything or the apple homepage on safari would open and I wouldn't be able to navigate to anywhere else.I called the help desk and was told to go to the tech room, after going there and was told I couldn't be helped I was sent to another lady who called someone and by merely restarting my laptop I was able to navigate the internet. After that I went back to the building I spend all my time in and the I was back to square one. I have searched numerous forums with similar issues and attempted as much as I understood and could and am still unable to connect.Please help, I need so badly to be able to connect to wifi on this computer while at school!

MacBook Air :: Why Does Wifi Not Connect To A Network

Mar 25, 2012

Since about 2 days ago, my wifi on my Macbook air running 10.7.3 Lion does not connect to any wireless network, whether it's naked, WEP encrypted, or WP2 encrypted.  It fails on 'Network Settings' Network Status step (Wi-fi and Wi-fi settings are 'green').  In fact, I can use my other Macbook running 10.7.2 Lion as well as my Android phone to connect to the wireless networks my Macbook air cannot connect to.   

What I find really weird is I tried re-installing Lion on my Macbook air using the 'command-R' key on bootup.  I was able to successfully connect to my WEP encrypted router during the re-install. But once it was done and re-booted I once again cannot connect to any wifi. 

So something really funny is going on while OS-X is fully booted on my Macbook air. 

This is pretty crummy situation to be in because the Macbook airs don't have a default ethernet jack built into it, so the computer is somewhat useless.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To Wifi

Jul 1, 2012

My father made a wifi network for our house. When I got my Macbook Pro in December 2011, I had no problem connecting to it. As soon as I turned on my computer, I was automatically connected. However, for at least 2 months now, I am unable to connect to my network. When I try connecting, a message will pop up saying: "Unable to join network, Connection timeout occured." I talked to someone from AppleCare, and they told me since my router to the wifi network was not from Apple, I would have to unplug the router and turn off my computer. Then wait 2 minutes or so, and turn everything back on. Is there anny way I could try connecting to my network without turning off my computer?

OS X :: My MacBook Won't Connect To My Home WiFi Network?

Dec 10, 2010

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.

MacBook :: MBA Wifi Slow To Connect After Sleep?

Mar 2, 2008

Does anyone else notice the MBA takes a long time to reconnect to your wifi network after awaking from sleep? I'd say it takes 10-15 seconds vs. a MBP which takes less than 5 seconds.Not a huge deal, but I'd say it's one of the slowest notebooks I've used to reconnect to a wifi network.

OS X :: Macbook Won't Connect To Home Wifi WEP Protected?

Mar 30, 2009

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.

MacBook Pro :: How Can I Connect To WiFi? - Using Charter Cable

Nov 17, 2009

I just moved into my cousins house, which is a lot closer to my university. For the past year have lived about 20 miles away and fortunately now am under 3 miles away.My current situation (don't wanna call it a problem, hoping we'll find a solution) is that his WiFi network is located on one end of his house, while i'm staying on the other side. His house isn't somewhat big, def. more vast than anything i'm used to...but the WiFi is on the south side of the house. My guest bedroom and small work area is on the north side, i'm guessing 40 or 50ft away.He had WiFi using Charter Cable and won't budge drilling another hole in the middle of the house so I could get reception. Nor will he have a long cable from the south side go to even the middle of the home.

It will list my network in the network list and will connect to other unsecured networks but not to mine. I use WPA2 security on the network.Alternatively, my Macbook Air, Mac Mini, iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii have no problems connecting.
