MacBook Air :: Connecting To Wireless Printer - Adhoc Network?

I just bought a wireless printer (Samsung CLP-315W) and would like to connect it to ma MacBook air. The instructions says that first of all U should create a adhoc network on my Mac: System Preferences, network settings, open the network name list and choose "airportthrue". But there is no "airportthuru" -possibility in the list. What do I do to create the adhoc network?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To LanierLD145 Printer Via Shared Wireless Network
I am a new intern with a small company and am trying to connect my Macbook Pro's printer settings to our office printer, which is a LanierLD145. We halso have an HP3600 on the same wireless network which my Macbook can detect and print to just fine via the shared network server. However, when I try to find the LanierLD145 I can't find it anywhere on my shared network or via a wireless to connection in order to print to it from my laptop.†

I have access to the desktop I believe the printer is routed to the server through and have "shared printer with network" via this computer. However, I still cannot find the LD145 icon on my macbook when I try to connect and print, even when going through the "Windows"-> (shared server) route. I've also installed apple's "general lanier printer driver" in hopes have luck finding the printer if I have the driver installed, but that has not worked either. How I can connect the macbook to the LanierLD145 via my wireless server connection?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Network Printer?
My daughter just got a MacBook Pro for Christmas. We are all on PC's and have a network with a router. Two printers are on the network with print servers. I've tried to print to these printers after installing them using IP and inputing their IP addresses. Does not work. Not familiar with Apple terminology but from all I've read on the Apple website I think I'm doing right. The print servers are little Netgear PS 121 USB print servers.

I'm brand new to this forum, and Mac's as a whole. I'm trying to connect our new MacBook Pro to a HP Photosmart C4680 printer through a wireless network that we purchased yesterday. Both the MacBook and printer were purchased through at the Apple store.

Here is our setup:

OS X :: Connecting IMac And MacBook To Same Wireless Network?
So a friend of mine just bought an iMac and is trying to use it on her wireless network. Before the iMac was bought she could use the wireless network I. Her house fine but since the iMac got hooked up the computers can't be online at the same time.

If the MacBook is on and the iMac is off the Internet works on the MacBook and vice versa. Is there anyway a firewall is preventing both computers from connecting to the same wireless network? If so, is there anything you can do to help me out to get them both working properly?A netgear router that was provided by time warner is being used and I'm not sure if y'all need anymore information than that.

Hardware :: Connecting Non Wireless PC And Printer, MacBook Pro With Airport Extreme?
I need to know how I can set up a system so that I can use the printer and browse the internet wirelessly on the MacBook Pro and have the non-wireless PC connect to the internet and use the printer as well.

It sounds confusing, so hopefully one of you guys will be able to understand it and maybe quickly draw a labeled diagram to show me.

MacBook Pro :: Not Properly Connecting To Wireless Network
Recently my Macbook pro stopped properly connecting to my university's wireless network. The MB recognizes the signal, and it says it's at full strength, but safari/firefox pages won't open, I can't run software update, and no other program that is able to connect to the interent is showing signs of doing so. My girlfriend's computer still connects to the university's network, along with about every other computer around me. I ran a network diagnostic, but at the end it said the network diagnostic could not fix the problem. I tried restarting the computer, but to no avail.

OS X :: Auto-mount A Network Drive After Connecting To A Wireless Network?
I am trying to figure out how to automatically connect a MacBook to a network drive after connecting to the wireless network that the drive is connected to.

Here is the situation:

I back-up my wife's MacBook via Time Machine to an external hard drive that is connected to my Apple desktop. It works great! I even have her system setup to automatically mount the drive upon log-in. Unfortunately, after leaving our wireless signal and then coming back the time machine drive isn't automatically mounted since she isn't "logging back-in". Is there an automator script that can be built to automatically connect to drive X after connecting to wireless network Z?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Win7 Home Network For File And Printer Sharing
I just bought my first Macbook pro (13" 2.66ghz w/ OSX 10.6.4) and it is my first apple product. I was under the impression that it would be able to connect to my home windows network so I could file & printer share. So far I have only been able to connect to the internet wirelessly but have been unable to connect to the home network. All the online help keeps telling me I need to turn on windows sharing but where they tell me to look there is every other type of sharing but windows sharing.

MacBook Pro :: Wireless Network Has Been Connecting For A Few Minutes Then Dropping?
In recent months I have been encountering more and more problems in connecting my Macbook Pro to my home wireless network. It has been connecting for a few minutes then dropping. The connection could sometimes be re-established by restarting hardware (Macbook and/or Wireless hub) or by re-inputting network details in the Network "Assist Me" wizard. Now, the connection will not establish at all wirelessly. I believe I've established the following:
1. Broadband is functioning: A fast, stable connection is established if connected via an ethernet cable.
2. Wireless signal is functioning: My iPhone 4, my wife's iPhone 3GS and my wife's Windows XP laptop all connect to our broadband wirelessly.By finding similar threads on Apple forums, I've tried the following with no success:
1. Systematically turning all hardware on and off in sequence.

2. Deleting the network from "preferred networks", deleting password from Keychain, repairing disk permissions in Disk Utility, restarting the laptop and re-inputting wireless network settings.As far as I can tell, a functioning wireless network with other devices mean that this isn't a problem with the specifics of the wireless network (channel, security etc.). When I try to re-input network settings on my Macbook, an error message appears "Invalid password" (or similar). This is definitely the same password that works on all other devices and has previously worked on the Macbook.I have read about similar problems with Macbook Pros over the last couple of years without a definitive fix, which is disappointing.

Here are some specific details:
Macbook Pro 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
OS X 10.6.5
AirPort Extreme (Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0)
Wireless ADSL Modem Router: ZyXEL P660HW

MacBook Air :: Connecting To Wireless Internet
Just bought a macbook air and am having trouble connecting to wireless internet. It can detect and connect to the network, but when i try and use safari, it says "you are not connected to the internet". Have tried network diagnostics to no avail (it can't get past network settings), and now have an exclamation mark in front of the reception bars.

We also have a MacBook and a MacBook Pro, which have had no issues connecting to and using the internet.

OS X :: Connecting To Wireless Printer Via Router
I have an eMac 1Ghz with 10.3.9 on it and I just bought a new Lexmark Wi-Fi Printer. I have no Extreme card, just a Netgear Wired/Wireless router that's obviously connected to my eMac via CAT5 cable. I set up the printer for wireless, hoping my eMac would use the router as a card-substitute type deal. Well it doesn't. Cannot connect as if it were not there.

MacBook Air :: Connecting Canon Office All-In-One PIXMA MX330 Printer
I purchased my Macbook Air a few months ago, and I selected theCanon Office All-In-One PIXMA MX330 printer to go along with it. I have tried to install the printer a few times in various ways. Initially, I used my Macbook Air superdrive to attempt to load my new printer with the included disk. However, installation requires that the printer be connected to the Macbook via USB. Since the superdrive was occupying my only USB, I tried to connect my printer wirelessly with another computer. The laptop I used was not a Mac, and I simply could not get his computer to recognize the disk for my Macbook. So I tried something else; I borrowed my school libraries USB splitter in a last attempt to connect them both to my Macbook Air at the same time. However the superdrive does not react when not directly connected to the computer...

In short, I cannot find a way to connect my Canon Office All-In-One PIXMA MX330 printer to my Macbook Air.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To WPA-PSK Wireless / Safari Not Connecting To Network
Airport sucks. A lot. It works just fine in WEP or unprotected networks, but WPA-PSK it doesn't do a damn thing. It shows it as connected with a full signal, but Safari, iChat, etc... won't connect to the internet. For some reason Azureus works, but it's going at an amazing 146 bytes/sec and then back down to 0. What's going on here guys? This is my first Mac and I am sorely disappointed in Airport.

MacBook Air :: AirPort Not Always Connecting To Preferred Network
I have a macbook air, but this seems to apply to any mac's with airport. I connect once to our corporate wireless network, I type in the password and it connects. On occasions, when I start up the computer, it doesn't connect and a window pops up with my network listed but it says "none of your preferred networks are available". When I first connect I do check off remember this network. So why isn't it remembering it?

When I go into system preference and click on network, select airport and click on advanced, that network does appear under the preferred networks. Does anyone know why its not letting me automatically connect the next time? Sometimes its ok, sometimes it doesn't even know I connected to this network before.

Hardware :: How Do I Make My Mac Automatically Connect To An Adhoc Network?
My old TiBook running Tiger did this without a hitch, but now that I'm on Snow Leopard it refuses to automatically connect to any computer-to-computer network.

My new laptop is an aluminum MacBook though I doubt that makes any difference as I know it's an OSX issue.

I've listed it as a preferred network in the AirPort preferences pane, but it doesn't seem to help.

There might be a terminal command to make it do this but I don't know it. Any suggestions?

MacBook Air :: Not Connecting To Wifi / Still Asks Me To Select A Network To Join?
Even though I have my router in preferred network list, my MBA still asks me to select a network to join. It says that none of my preferred network is in range, and only shows my router after I "refresh" the list by clicking on the airport icon. My UMBP connect to my network fine. Is there any way to also make my MBA connect to the network automatically?
