MacBook :: "Connetion Timeout" On Macbook When Trying To Connect To New Router?


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?

IMac Intel :: Won't Connect To Router - Connection Timeout
Now my iMac has been without internet for almost 2 weeks now and i cant figure out why. both of the PCs in my house will connect with powerful signal strength but not my iMac and its within 10ft of the router. the airport keeps giving me the connection timeout thing whenever i try to connect. the funny thing is i think its only connecting to microsoft products, yesterday my friend was over with his 2nd Gen Ipod Touch and we were given the unable to join message.

MacBook :: Could Not Connect To Wireless Network Timeout
I´ve massive trouble with connecting my wireless network via Airport. I´ve a MacBook (2008) with Lion. My connection was working till last week. I´vnt 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 it´s 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 don´t 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 don´t know what to do now.

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

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Router?
I have a brand new MBP and it won't connect to any non-apple wireless routers

- my computer is 2 days old (it's awesome and I love it accept that I can't get wireless connection at home)

- wireless router: westell versalink model 327 W

- PROBLEM: my mbp will detect the network just fine, but won't connect to it...just times out, it will connect to a neighbors linksys, but cannot load any internet pages, so still not helpful. When I try to connect to the wirelesss router using the network utility it asks for a WEP password, which it never did before because it's an open wireless router. (I know you should always password protect, but it's not my router...I'm just in the same house)

- I had a powerbook G4 and ibooks that have all connected fine to the same wireless network. My dad has an HP laptop that also connects fine

- it only connects to the apple brand airport wireless routers

- it will connect to the wireless router if I plug in the ethernet cord

- I have tried checking the connections, allowing all connections, repairing my disk permissions (even though my computer is only 2 days out of the box), resetting the router, opening the router so no password is needed...NOTHING WORKS!

- I also tried another wireless router (netgear): doesn't work

I've been reading around in some forums and this seems to be an apple and maybe more specifically a macbook pro issue (just by process of elimination). One forum said that it was because of an airport update that basically "breaks" mbp's airport and makes it not accept any non airport wireless connections, apple supposedly is working on a fix but who knows

I'm feeling disappointed and very upset that this is even a problem, especially with how many people I read are dealing with the same issue wit still no solution. My mbp was far from cheap and this just shouldn't be an issue. I'm planning on contacting apple and getting to bottom of this or at least some kind of answer.

OS X Leopard :: Setup A New Router - PCs Can Connect But My MacBook Cannot
I'm currently in Northern Spain and set up a TelefĂłnica router today. Everything was super easy, and I am connected now through an Ethernet cable. The network shows up in my Airport, but when I type in the password that's written on the bottom of the router, it says "Connection timeout" every time. My roommates, who all have PCs, have been able to connect wirelessly using the same password.

I've never had problems with my connection before, it has worked in the USA and here in Spain in internet cafés, wifi hotspots, everywhere. Why isn't it accepting the password? Is there any way to make the Airport try connecting for longer before timing out?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To WiFi If Not Near Router
I have a year old 2.26 GHz MBP and never had any complaints. However over the past few weeks I have noticed that the wi-fi performance has become really bad. Even if I step out with my MBP a few feet away, either the speed gets dropped considerably or I get a connection time out and I can't connect. I have a 4 old white Macbook and it works fine in the same setup and distance. I have also got my router replaced twice thinking it was initially a problem with the connection. But now I think there is an issue with my MBP. I have already formatted my drive, done a clean install, fixed permission, rest pram etc. Do you think Apple will replace the Ethernet card?

MacBook Pro :: Router Found But Cannot Connect To Internet
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?

OS X V10.4 :: Macbook Won't Connect To Router?
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. The other two are both 2-3 years old and connected to the internet right away after I put in the password.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Connect To Netgear Router
I purchased a 17" MBP In October of 2009. It would not connect to our Netgear G router at home, so temporarily I used our neighbors'. Our network would show up in Airport, but it would have the little padlock next to it, and would ask me for a password (even though we do not have one set - all our other computers, all Windows, work fine without a password). Therefore it wouldn't let me on. If I recall correctly, it would let me just continue without a password, but it would time out.

I called Apple in November and they told me to reset my router completely, back to manufacturer settings. So I did, and it worked. Then an unrelated problem occurred with my MBP and I had to get it replaced. Brought the new one home, same thing happened. But I cannot get our router to reset like it did last time. Not only did my attempts to reset not allow my MBP to connect, but my dad's desktop couldn't connect either, and it's the one connected directly to the router.

Are there specific settings that the Mac prefers? I'm getting ticked that I can't use the internet in my own home. Our neighbors are our friends and we accidentally end up on each other's networks all the time, so they're not upset, but I'd rather use my own!

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To Internet After Router Reset
my MacBook Pro is unable to connect to the internet following a reset and reboot of my Belkin54g router.

Last week I was following some troubleshooting instructions to get my new Vodafone Sure Signal booster to work and it gave some instructions to alter settings in the router's IP configuration - all of a sudden I lost wireless connectivity on both my MacBook Pro & my Dell Laptop.

Last night I spoke to my ISP and they talked me through re-setting the router's settings and now the laptop is back up abd running and fully connected to the wireless and internet.

However, my MacBook Pro appears to detect the wireless, but not the internet connection. I asked the ISP to help but they said they would not help with resetting wireless settings on Macs.

MacBook Pro :: Had To Restart Router Every Time To Connect To Wifi
Just got a new Mac Book Pro which had a wifi connectivity problem from day 1. Every time the computer went standby or restarted, the airport connection was lost. When I run network diagnostics, I was asked to restart networking device. If I unplug and plug router power cord, the computer would detect the network change and connect properly, but then next time I have to do it all over again. Apple support told me to delete some network preference files and it didn't work. I use a d-link router that has the latest firmware and works fine with all other computers/ipad/iphones etc.

I have my macbook pro since this summer. Everything was working until yesterday when I came back in Berlin. I can not find (see) any more my wifi router. I can see others but not mine. I already restarted everything (mac/Airport/router)... I'm not the main renter so I can not really change anything from the router. And I can connect with Windows (bootcamp on the same mac machine). I really don't know why.

MacBook Air :: Rev.C 1.86 Won't Connect To Wireless Router
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 :: Can't Connect To WEP 128 Bits Router - How To Repair
Then after with the routers configuration, and discovered that my PCs flatmates had an 802.1x identification/password. So I connected through it using the Airport Advanced config. But can't connect to internet despite being now connected to the network. It says that I have a self-assigned ip. I think thats because despite being autenticated though the 802.1x, I didnt passed through the WEP 128. I tried then everything again every combination but cant get through.

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

OS X Leopard :: Can't Connect To Wireless Network "connection Timeout"
I saw a similar thread, but I decided to post this in its own thread, because my problem isn't Airport-related, as is the one posted in the other thread. I have an Airport base station at home, and there have been no problems there. However, since upgrading to Leopard, I am no longer able to connect to the free Wi-Fi that is provided at work, by my employer. Every time I try, I get a "connection timeout" error. Other people are still able to connect to this network just fine, and nothing has changed there. My system seems to be the only thing that has changed, so logically, this appears to be a problem with Leopard.

I tried using the network diagnostic tool, to see if I could figure it out, and I got a message that says that my network password is invalid, which is strange indeed, because it is an open network, and no password is required to access it!

I just talked my wife into buying a mac after 10 yrs of ranting how easy they are, she primarily uses it for photo's she shoot, majority weddings and ever since she got it we've had this problem were when she transfers files for SD card via USB port it errors in the beggining/middle or near the end of transfers. This happens with 100 photo's or 1000 no difference and then randomly at times it just works? any ideas as to what it causing this the cards are formatted on the NIKON D300 which is brand new as well. I can't format any other way because it has to be FAT32 for the camera to read.

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.

Snow Leopard :: NSPort Timeout Exception Killing MacBook Pro
Recently I got a Time Capsule and began to experience erratic system freezes, and everytime I was forced to hold down the power button and force a manual shutdown. It usually happens after a long period of inactivity with the network (so no browsing, but I guess some syncing is going on in the background). The first sign is that QuickSilver would freeze up when I tried to use it to launch an application, leaving the two patches of blue rectangles at the center of my screen. Then iTunes and Evernote would begin to not respond, and the next thing you know, the whole system is dead. Cmd-Alt-Esc does not help, and putting the mac to sleep then wake up does nothing either. Here is a bit of the error messages that keeps on repeating when I bring up Console.
