Mar 19, 2009

I got a new Zoom x6 router a few weeks ago (combined modem and router) and it works fine on my desktop but recently the connection on my macbook is HORRIBLE. It goes slow and disconnects a lot. Today I set a password to the router and when i try to connect to the macbook i type in the password (correctly) and it says "connection timeout" so now it wont connect at all. is there anyway to fix this?

MacBook :: Could Not Connect To Wireless Network Timeout

Mar 2, 2012

Ive massive trouble with connecting my wireless network via Airport. Ive a MacBook (2008) with Lion. My connection was working till last week. Ivnt changed any setting or something..I was working like every day. From one secound to another the connection to my network was broken. When I try to connect to my network my Mac gives a trouble message: "timeout". I allready checked my router config (192.168.0.1 as admin) and everything is fine. No MAC Filter! Everything is set like its written in the apple manual. I allready restarted my router. Plugged it completly off. Not working. I was so desperated that I installed my system (Lion) new 2 days ago. The connection problem is still there! I dont now where the problem is! I can connect with my MacBook to any other wireless network and via ethernet. The router is working fine because I can connect with my other laptop to it (by the way with 2 iphone as well). Do anyone no this problem? I dont know what to do now.

OS X :: MacBook Will Not Connect With One Particular Router

Nov 26, 2010

I recently sold my old MacBook to my brother. He has 2 PCs and 2 iPhones, both of which connect perfectly to the internet through his modem/router (a BT Business Hub). The Mac, on the other hand, just won't connect to the internet. Airport connects to the router, but cannot load any web pages. Connecting by ethernet does not appear to help. This Mac will happily connect to any other router except this one.

I recently changed the router password and now am unable to connect to it. I'm certain that I am putting the right password in and my router is available to connect to but it keeps booting me out. My 2 other macs aren't having any issues connecting to my router. The one that won't connect is a 5 year old macbook.

MacBook Air :: Rev.C 1.86 Won't Connect To Wireless Router

Mar 11, 2010

I have a Macbook Air Rev.C 1.86GHz and just yesterday, it stopped connecting to my D-Link wireless router. There have not been any updates applied to the router or the Mac recently, nor have I installed any apps to the Mac either. My iPhone sees and connects to the router fine, as does my MSI netbook, and my TabletPC too. I have turned the router off numerous times in trying to troubleshoot this, and only for a minute or two, does the Mac see the router and connect getting an IP. It then loses the connection shortly after. I have turned off the Mac's Airport a number of times, I have reset the SMB (I think, using the ctrl/shift/option/Power button while off, letting go, then pressing the Power Button only).

MacBook Pro :: Router Found But Cannot Connect To Internet

May 6, 2010

I have a 17 inch MBP OS X Leopard. I had no problems for two years of ownership until yesterday. I could not connect to my router and when I did and it said full bars I still can not go on a website. All it does is wait to connect. So then I noticed that my ethernet cable had the click in tab broken. I bought a new one everything worked fine my mbp and my IMac. Although when I did that it took my mbp a couple minutes to fully function again. About three hours later I had the same issue again. First it got slow, then nothing.

I would open airport it would show that its scanning and finds nothing. I try again, it finds my router connects but no internet. Then it came to the point where it finds my router and I try to connect but no bars show. My IMac works, my ipod touch wifi works, and so does my htc phone. So I am convinced that my mbp has a problem. Also, is it normal for the cd drive to be kind of sticky? I can put the cd in no problem, but when I eject, it sometimes doesn't sometimes only a bit of the cd comes out and I have to grab it and pull it out?

MacBook Pro :: Dual Band Wifi - Connect To Belkin Double N + Router?

May 11, 2010

So I'm trying to connect my MBP to my new Belkin Double N+ (F6D6230uk4) router. I have 2.4 ghz set to b/g and 5 ghz set to n and 20/40hz bandwidth. Last night, when I connected to the router for the first time, I was showing 300mbps, when you Options+click the Airport icon. However, now I'm only showing 145mbps. To be fair, I may have changed a few settings between now and then, but I have no idea how I was able to get 300mbps before. It's as though it's only connecting to one channel, instead of two, which is required for 300mpbs I think?

I just built a PC that actually works. However, I was really cheap and didn't wanna buy a wireless access card, thinking I could connect to an extra router and use this router to connect to my other router that's network enabled. Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about doing it? I tried googling it, but I dunno what this is called.

MacBook Pro :: Frequently Losing Internet Access - Timeout Error?

Jun 11, 2010

I'm on a boat in Fiji, using a Vodafone wireless dongle, and keep losing my connection. My vodafone software and my apple network software show I'm still connected, but suddenly I can't get into another page, or if I'm downloading a software update, I get a message that I have a timeout error. I then disconnect my connection and re-connect and then things start happening again. However, I have not been able to stay active long enough to download my apple software updates which is really frustrating. It seems to happen more often when I'm downloading something sizeable, like a video or software update, but happens other times as well. I'm a mac novice, (bought this, my first mac about 10 months ago) and not terribly computer savvy to begin with. Looking through this forum, I'm confused by much of what I read, but I'm beginning to think this problem may be beyond my capacity to solve.

OS X :: Make Fios Router My Default Router On MacBook?

Mar 22, 2009

I just recently got Verizon Fios internet. I am having a problem with making the router they supplied my default router.I am not trying to piggy back or connect additional routers. I just want to use the Fios router.Prior to Fios, I had Time Warner and i used my own router and as soon as I opened up my macbook, it would immediately find that router as my default. Now, with Fios, when i open my "Airport" icon at the top on my screen, it NEVER choses my Fios router as my default, making me change to it every time i want to use my internet after opening up my computer.

OS X :: Router Dropping Will Not Connect?

Feb 23, 2009

So i moved into a new place with roommates who have an existing router setup. The have a pretty fast internet connection and a setup with an older netgear router. One has an old macbook (13-widescreen) and one a sony netbook of some sort or a really small viao.

The both connect to the internet with out a problem.

I have a new aluminum macbook and I can't connect. Usually what will happen is I will get home and have a decent connection for about 5 minutes. After that pages will load but the progress bar will stall. And then within five minutes I can't open anything, and finally it will boot me off, and when i try to reconnect it just asks me for the password which is saved in the keychain and it just does a connection timeout til i give up.

Now the weird thing is this. I tried bypassing the router and direct connecting the cable modem and still nothing. I have gone into the settings, messed with those, rebooted, everything an I can't solve it (both my roommates are not techies so they aren't much help). I have no problem connecting to anyother network. it is a WEP set up.

Hardware :: How To Connect To My Router

May 26, 2009

Since my D-Link G604T Wireless experiences constant dropouts (everytime it is reconnected), I have borrowed a Netgear DG834G v2 router.

I hooked it up and then visit [URL]

I'm on a Macintosh.

My D-Link control panel was at [URL] and that works fine but the Netgear does not connect for some reason.

Do I need to mess around with IPs to make this work?

OS X :: Unable To Get New Linksys Router To Connect

Nov 12, 2010

I was getting tired of my belkin54g router that kept dropping connections, so I went and got a new linksys wireless G router. I popped in the CD, followed all the instructions and when I get to the end of the install it says that the configuration was successful, but it could not verify an internet connection.

I figure it's just a hiccup and try to connect with my laptop via airport- success! I get my homepage. But then, I can't get to any other page at all.

It says it can't find the page, but my network connection in system preferences says I'm connected. I go to my desktop which has the hardwire connection and I can't get on the internet at all, but again, my network connection in system preferences says I'm connected- green light, IP address and all.

So I figured I did something wrong and restored the factory settings on the router. Same thing happens again. WTF? This should have been easy. What the hell is wrong with this thing?

It should be noted that if I type in my IP address, the router info comes up immediately. I am also just connecting my modem to my desktop to post now. My internet connection works fine.

PowerPC :: Powerbook Won't Connect To Router?

I have just acquired myself a powerbook G4 to use as a server. At home, it can connect to the router (airport extreme) fine with no problems, but now I've taken it down to uni and it is refusing to connect to the router supplied by O2. I have the right password for it and when i type it in, it says that there was an error joining the network. I've changed the frequency of the router multiple times to get it to work but to no avail so was wondering if any of you guys could help?

Just how do I connect a G4 to an Airport Extreme Base station via LAN cable, and then get it to connect to an existing wireless network (that's using a non Mac router). It's just that the existing airport card is painfully slow with a NAS and as I had the AE kicking about I thought I'd use that rather than buying a new PCI AE card.
