MacBook :: "Connetion Timeout" On Macbook When Trying To Connect To New Router?
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?
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.
Info: MacBook (13-inch Late 2007), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
Hey everybody , I just bought a 15" MBP yesterday , unboxed it , turned on.. everything is fine , surfing the net... , and then installed SL , the internet start having some problems , like losing connection...etc , after that i couldn't connect , "connection timeout" I thought it was from the SL , so I deleted it and installed Leopard , but still the same problem , also if I try to connect from the iPhone or the iPod touch through wifi , it says unable to connect...
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.
For some reason when i try to open firefox its says page cannot be found. The signal is very strong and it says its connected. There is surrounding routers in my neighborhood so i connected to a other one and it works just fine. I was having the same problem this morning with my desk top which is a PC it said something about my ip address but it repaired itself.
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.
I am a new Mac user with a new Mac book pro. The Mac was connecting to wifi until today. Today I added another wifi connection through mifi hauwaei modem. Since then I cannot connect to my old wifi access point. It connects but not getting the Internet or get to the router using 192.168.2.1. I can still connect to my mifi. My iPhone, iPad and other laptops can connect to my old access point with out any issues. I use zyxel router as my old access point.
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).
The Linksys router has a static ip set up to work with the DSL connection and desktop. My macbook pro connects to the router but there is no internet connection! This is pissing me off becuase my mom's cheap Dell notebook connects flawlessly but My $2500 macbook pro doesn't. What do I need to do?
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?
I've updated my wireless rounter and also decided to not have it broadcast the network.I can connect to the router no problem by using the option "connect to other network".I also have the box checked that says, remember this network, but my macbook doesn't automatically reconnect after it sleeps or when I turn it off. Would love to understand how to make my macbook automatially reconnect so I don't have to go through the extra steps of reloggin on each time.
The wireless network I want to join runs through a Wnet R300 router with a 3.5G simcard wireless internet connection.Â My MacBook will not connect, while all other devices (Kindle, Nokia phone, Mac Mini, etc.) will.Â I have changed the wireless security on the router from WEP to WPA2 and still no luck.Â What settings do I need to change?Â
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?
Updated to latest security download and now MacBookPro cannot connect to wireless router.iPad works on the router and MacbookPro works on other wifi networks, but it will nolonger work with the actual wireless router that I used to download the latest security software? Is there some security issue I need to address? There is no security/password on this wireless router.
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.
I am having massive amounts of trouble connecting to my Wi-Fi router, currently running 10.7.4 and just done a totally fresh install (no time machine restore) I've seen people having this problem a lot but those posts were from last year (around 10.7.2) I've tried creating a new location and renewing the DHCP lease, connecting over ethernet works fine what on earth is going on here!?
I have a MacBook Pro Yosemite 10.10.1 (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014). Today my mbp won't connect to any other wifi except one. When I tried to connect other wifi it gives me "connection timeout" all the time.Â I tried to restart/reset my router, used new location, create new wifi connection but all of them does not work.Â
Info: MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
I used to connect wirelessly through a router. I can't connect anymore with my macbook, I have a message "connection timeout" when I choose appropriate network and type the code (I tried both WPA and WEP). The thing is I can connect without any issue onto the same network using a pc.
I have also a partition with Windows vista on my macbook but still I can't go online.
My browser and other application keeps timing out. It times out for 30 seconds. then its alright for quite sometime , then it times out again for another 30 seconds or so. Then it works fine again. I have the Macbook Pro Unimodel 15.4", Mac OS X 10.6.4 . The pings are alright. just my browser and the other applications. I have a WRT54GC linksys router at home. What seems to be the problem?
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.
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.
I have a MBP (2007 model) and i recently setup a home network. The router is a Belkin N Wireless router. My laptop is the main computer in my home.
Now my Ipod Touch and my cell phone work just fine with my router; i.e they connect and i can surf the net and stuff, but my laptop will not get on the net once i disconnect the ethernet cable from it.
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.
