MacBook Air :: AirPort Does Not Automatically Connect To Home Network

Jun 22, 2009

I really like my new MacBook Air, but one thing bothers the crap out of me which is that my airport doesn't automatically connect at home. I did nothing to my network out of the box and connect via WPA2 settings. My wife's late 2008 MacBook always connects to our home network (which is an Apple Extreme N router). Even my Dell Mini with OSX connects perfectly every time. What's causing the MacBook Air not to automatically connect and how do I fix it? BTW, I have tried turning off the Airport and turning back on. Also I used "assist me" to reconnect my DHCP settings and clicked to automatically connect me to my network. The only way I can connect is to click down on the wireless icon and actually choose the network.

OS X :: Disk On Network Doesn't Automatically Mount Using Backup

Sep 13, 2009

I use Backup (the Mac app) to backup some things to my iDisk and others to an hd connected to my airport extreme. It works fine, except for that when the app appears (each day) for the scheduled backup to the network hd, (it sits there waiting, saying ''waiting for volume... and the name of the disk"). I have to go to the finder, open a window, go to 'All' under 'Shared' locations, choose the network hd, click on the folder (there's only one one the disk) and then, and only then, will the backup begin. Is there any way for it to just be able to find the folder by itself and perform the backup without my having to find the folder for it every time?

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing Doesn't Work On Wireless Network?

May 1, 2010

I tried to set up a home share between mine and my girlfriend's MacBooks. It worked okay both ways, but then I disconnected my ethernet cable and the connection dropped.

I started fiddling around and discovered that home sharing only works as long as any one of the two computers is connected to the router with a cable. The other one can be connected wirelessly. But it won't work if both are wireless at the same time.

OS X :: Why Won't Automatically Join Wifi

Dec 18, 2009

If my wifi isn't turned on, my MBP chucks-up a warning saying none of my networks are available. So I close the box and turn on my wifi. My iPhone will then, without any further input, connect to my wifi.So why does my �1600 MacBook Pro need me to reselect it from my wifi list? Why can't it just see it and connect to it?!

MacBook Air :: Not Connecting To Wifi / Still Asks Me To Select A Network To Join?

May 19, 2009

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?

This is a new iMac with Lion. The network is ok because all my other devices work fine with it. The network is in the list and when I select it my mac joins without problem, but won't join it automatically. I've also tried to move my network up in the list but that doesn't seem to work either.

Hardware :: Airport Express Will Not Join Network?

Jul 20, 2009

I updated 1 of 3 expresses to 7.4.2. Using it to stream music with Airfoil suddenly stopped. Got it put back to 7.4.1 but it will still not join the network other than when it is connected via ethernet cable. Two other expresses work. Been to genius bar. This is doing my head in. Had wonderful full house steaming sound with iTunes or Airfoil. Have tried everything i can think of.

Has anybody else had this problem.

Is there a solution. I have reset it several times both hard and soft resets.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Join Wireless Network/Will All Traffic Go Mac Wireless Router

Jan 5, 2011

I have just got my 1Tb time capsule and there are a lot of confusing descriptions of how to connect it.

At the moment I have just selected "join existing wireless network" which is a ADSL 2.4ghz G Router that came with my internet package (Thompson TG585 v7).

Does this mean that all traffic goes via the ADSL Router and that I will not be using the 5ghz band when I back up so that all the data will follow a path like this and have slow data rates? :

MAC --2.4ghz--> ADSL Router --2.4ghz--> TC

or will I be communicating directly with the TC at 5ghz for backups and data transfer and 2.4ghz with the ADSL router for internet like this? :

MAC --5ghz--> TC
ADSL Router --2.4ghz--> MAC

If this is not a good setup, what setup would allow me to get the full speed to the time capsule and be connected to the internet.

MacBook Pro :: How Everyone Using Home Network

Jan 4, 2011

I received my new 15" MBP last night and quickly set up a network between my 08 iMac and the new MBP. Nothing fancy - Verizon FIOS router with Airport Express connected by ethernet cable - AE set up in Bridge mode, and both computers connected to the AE wireless network. Still pretty amazing to a first-time home networker. I shared my entire iMac iphoto library and itunes library and was able to view, play, and import on the MBP. I shared some files from the iMac and that worked like a champ on the MBP.

I was even more amazed with the Back to my Mac feature. Instantly able to get screen access and file access. Pretty amazing how easy it was. I had set up a Epson wireless printer on the iMac. Simply hit + on the MBP, selected the Epson, and printed wirelessly seconds later. I would still be flailing with my Windows machine. How does everyone use their home network? Anything to share that I'm missing? Any capability I need to start taking advantage of?

MacBook Pro :: Building A Home Network?

Oct 4, 2010

Maybe not the best subforum to post in but I couldn't see where else I could post it.

My brother and I both have MBP's and we'd like to share a hard drive connected to out WiFi router. We'd also like to use the new 'AirPlay' technology that'll be coming out soon.

Since I've never assembled a home network before, I'd like to know what are all of the components that I'd need?

An external hard drive and WiFi router running to an Airport Express Base and then using everything over the wireless network?

How would I connect a printer to this too?

Sorry for the possibly confusing questions, I just don't to go out and buy anything I don't need.

MacBook Air :: Sharing CD / DVD From Win XP Box Over Home Network

Dec 31, 2010

This is my first Mac and I haven't purchased the Superdrive yet. I've been searching Google and found a lot of "hits" on the general topic, but either it's using a different OS (slight difference in screens) or glances over the topic. Can anyone recommend a good thread or site that details how to share a CD/DVD from a Windows XP (Home Edition) box over a home network (Linksys 4 port/wireless) to a MBA (new). The MBA successfully connects to the wireless router and I can access the internet. The Desktop (Windows XP box) successfully connects via RJ45.

Secondly if the above is fairly easy, I'd love to know how I can print from the MBA through the network connection to the PC. The printer is a Xerox WorkCentre M15 (it's a office grade machine which I had presumed works well in a shared environment.) The printer is connected to the PC via a USB connection. However I've ordered a Buffalo LinkStation (I think that's the name) which is a NAS box that has print sharing capabilities, so I could hook the printer up that way if necessary to use for both the PC & Mac.

Mac :: MacBook Pro Can't Connect To My Home Network?

Jun 13, 2010

Had my MacBook Pro for a little a month now, and I love it. The problem I am faced with now is that I can't connect to my home network. My iMac is able to connect perfectly, but whenever I try to connect with my MBP, it won't connect, or will assign it's own IP and then states "You will not be able to connect to the internet." It's quiet annoying when I can't use my laptop to connect to the internet, what I am faced to do right now is take my iMac and bluetooth tether it to my MBP. This is fine if I'm in the same room, but it won't work when I'm upstairs. Does anyone know what's wrong? Should I contact my Apple store?

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 Pro :: Unable To Find Home Network On It

MacBook Pro :: Its Shutting Off The Home Wireless Network?

Mar 31, 2012

I've been reading through some of the other MBP wi-fi issues but couldn't find anyone discussing what I'm dealing with so I wanted to put this out there.   

I got a MBP earlier this week and, it seems like after powering down or shutting the MBP and reopening it, my wi-fi network at home shuts down or isn't recognized.  When this happens, I have to unplug my airport extreme and turn the internet on and off on my cable router so the wi-fi signal can be recognized on my wireless devices.  It's not just the MBP (running Lion 10.7.3) that can't find the wi-fi when this happens; my MacBook (running OSX 10.5.8), my TV with wi-fi and my wife's iPhone lose their signals also.  The airport extreme and my cable router still are showing that they're running when this happens (green light on airport). 

It only seems to happen when the MBP has been powered down or closed.  Not sure if it has something to do with the airport extreme router that's in the MBP.  It doesn't seem that anything is actually turning off the airport extreme but none of the devices can recognize the wi-fi signal after this happens.  Turning off and on the airport from either of the computers doesn't seem to do anything.  It requires a reboot to the airport.

MacBook Pro :: Can't SSH To Server On Port 22 From Home Network

Aug 28, 2014

Can't SSH to server on port 22 from home network 

When I try to connect to a remote server over SSH from my home network, I get this error: 

ssh: connect to host port 22: Operation timed out 

I can't connect to any servers on port 22. Other networking services (like HTTP) are working fine. Also, I can connect to the SSH servers on port 22 from other networks using this same machine. 

I suspect it's a problem with my Airport configuration. What should I do?

Macbook Wireless Internet Doesn't Work At Home

Mar 15, 2012

For some reason, my macbook's wireless internet doesn't work at home. It takes hours to load a simple page if it doesn't time out. The wireless works everywhere but at my house which is frustrating when taking it to apple. Other apple products and computers connect to the home wireless perfectly but not this laptop. Apple suggested a reformat, but it did not help.

Hardware :: Macbook Won't Connect To Wireless Home Network?

Jan 14, 2008

I have a Netgear wireless router that is about 4 years old and has the latest firmware installed. Until now, I have had only Windows computers connected wirelessly and it has worked fine. We just got a new Macbook. When I try to connect to our network, it finds the network name but goes nowhere once I have entered the passphrase. Not being familiar with Macbooks I'm not sure what I'm missing. I did see somewhere that older versions of Airport required either a '$' preceeding the password or that the password should be enclosed with "". None of these things helped. What am I missing?

By the way, according to the Netgear docs, this router should work with Macs.
