MacBook Pro :: Connecting To IMac Internet Sharing (BootCamp Installed)

Jun 25, 2010

I have a MacBook Pro with windows vista on it, and I cant get it to connect to IMac internet sharing, I can get my Mac OS to connect, but when I go on windows, I cant. When I diagnose the problem it says the wireless settings on this computer do not match the requirements if this network. I found this website: [URL] and I know how to set the imac to internet share but that last step that I have to put the internet type as "shared" on my macbook (windows) I have no clue where to find it. Its the network authentication settings, or some settings. I looked in the internet settings and idk if or where it is.

OS X :: Connecting IMac To Internet Via AirPort

Mar 20, 2010

I bought a 27" iMac about two months ago, and recently it's been having trouble connecting to the internet via airport. Sometimes it has no trouble, other times, no matter how many times I put in my WEP password and hit connect, it just gives me the 'connection timeout error'. Basically, our whole household was having internet troubles about a month ago, but they mysteriously stopped for everyone else except me after a week or two. My housemates all have PC's, and are able to connect fine now. I also have a MacBook as well, which also has no trouble picking up the wireless. One of the weird quirks about this problem is that if my MacBook is connected and moved to sit right next to my iMac, I can often get the iMac to connect. And if it drops the connection, I can refresh a page on the MacBook and suddenly the internet works again on my iMac.

And I also discovered that if I move my iMac to the right about 30cms, it sometimes connects. This suggests that maybe I'm out of range for my wireless, but how am I able to connect at other times when the iMac in it's normal place? Anyway, I've ruled out a fault with the wireless itself, because, as I mentioned, every other computer can connect fine. I've also tried going into the system prefs and renewing the DHCP lease, which *sometimes* works, but usually doesn't. It has been connecting fine for about 2 days, but tonight it started acting up again. It's connected now, but it's pretty sporadic and keeps dropping the connection. In case you need to know, it's one of the new 27" iMacs, the usual duo core not the quad core. 4gb memory, etc.

This is my first ever mac that I've owned given to my by a friend, so excuse my simplicity. It's a G4 and I have a wireless internet access at home through Time Warner Cable.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Internet Sharing Does Not Work After Updating IMac

May 13, 2012

After updating my new iMac to 10.7.4. My internet sharing suddenly doesn't work any more. I connect my ipad and iphone via the wifi. It will drop out after a very short time, about 10 seconds of Facetime, so I turn off the wifi, then the internet sharing then reboot everything but nothing seems to work. It worked perfectly in 10.7.3 but now I can't use the internet on my ipad.

IMac :: Connecting To Wireless Internet Via AirPort

May 8, 2009

To make a long story short, I moved to my girlfriend's place yesterday and I plugged in my iMac (20" 2.16 Ghz Intel C2D, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon X1600/256MB VRAM) and I've been trying to connect to the Internet. Now, I couldn't have my iMac plugged directly were the router is located. Back at home, I never had any problems since I had my ethernet cable plugged into my iMac.

So this was my first time trying to connect via wireless or Airport (if that's even the same thing). Basically, I choose the network to log in and typed in the WEP key. I didn't get an error message so I assumed the key was fine. Also, it says that I'm connected to the network I'm on. However, when I try to get on Safari or MSN or something says I'm not connected to the Internet.

Hardware :: Connecting IMac With Two Machines To Internet Wirelessly

Apr 7, 2008

I'm purchasing a new iMac intel core2 duo and want to connect it and my G4 500MHz Power Mac tower and 550Mhz PowerBook wirelessly to the internet. I have Cable modem at the front of my house and will put the iMac in a different room about 10m away. I have my G4 tower separate from the house about 40m away and my PowerBook won't be more than 10m from the modem. I am purchasing a 500GB Time Capsule to act as a wireless router and as an external hard drive for the iMac. How do I, or can I, connect the other two macs to the internet wirelessly?

The advice 1: iMac is fine.
G4 Tower_install an airport express card (802.11n) and insert where the old card should go. It should connect to internet wirelessly.
PowerBook_same thing(?)
The advice 2:
G4 Tower_install a Shintaro USB2.0 5-Port PCI Card and Addlogix USB 2.0 54MBps Wireless Adaptor
PowerBook_can't do anything for it.

Windows On Mac :: New Drive Installed XP Installed Now No Drivers Or Internet?

Dec 5, 2010

Installed a new 750GB drive into my MacBookPro 5.1 Couldn't get Winclone to make image so I was forced to start from scratch with a new XP installation.

My MBP is partitioned 25%Mac & 75%XP with bootcamp and I have the old drive in a enclosure connected with a firewire. So all of old files are on the external drive now.

After installing XP I have no internet connection, drivers etc... However if I boot up on the mac side everything works fine. (I cloned the mac os already with Carbon copy).

So can I just copy all my old drivers over to the new drive? If yes how and if no how do I get them installed on the new harddrive. The MBP came with everything preinstalled.

Intel Mac :: When Sharing Internet Through Ethernet Wireless Internet Dies

May 22, 2012

For specific reasons, I needed to connect my Synology DS211 NAS to my iMac directly via its ethernet port.  I discovered that if I share my wireless internet connection (coming from my cable modem/wireless router) from wireless to ethernet, then the NAS would get the IP stuff it needed to show up. did that, voila, NAS is acting like a glorified external hard drive.  BUT, when I did that, I lost all internet connectivity on my iMac.  Still have full wireless signal.  preferences pane says I'm fully connected to my network with an IP address, but safari always fails to pull up any webpages, saying I'm not connected to the internet.As soon as  turn off the ethernet PORT, it all starts working again.  And to make it even crazier, I discovered that if I leave sharing my wireless internet via my ethernet port ON, but turn off the ethernet port (in pref pane), I can STILL access the NAS just like before.  That makes no sense - I'm sharing my internet via a port I have turned off, but it works? Anyway, why would Iose my airport wireless internet connection when the ethernet port is on - configured manually?

MacBook :: Internet Sharing Through AirPort Disconnects

Sep 30, 2010

I've recently moved into student accommodation, which only has wired internet access in the rooms. This is fine for my MacBook, but causes problems for the iPad! So I've been attempting to share the MacBook's internet connection through AirPort using the "Internet Sharing" option in System Prefs->Sharing. This works great, but after a while it disconnects for no apparent reason.

MacBook Pro :: Internet Connection Sharing Flaky?

Jul 20, 2009

I am sharing the wifi connection from my MBP to my desktop since I haven't run a wire or set up wireless yet. It works, but every minute or two the Limited or No Connectivity icon appears, and for a few seconds, the desktop is offline. After a few seconds, it works again. This has happened with the desktop running both XP and Linux, so I don't think it's an OS issue. The wifi connection on my MBP is rock solid, and it always works just fine whether or not the desktop can connect.

MacBook Pro ::MBP 13inch With Vista Installed On Bootcamp But Low Sound?

Jul 5, 2009

I've got the latest MBP 13inch with Vista installed on Bootcamp. I've turned the sound all the way up and it's still very low. I've got all the latest boot camp drivers installed, I've tried viewing different videos trying to see if the video was the culprit, but unfortunately it wasn't. I searched around and I've seen others with this issue, but haven't found a fix.

I've watched the same videos in Leopard that I did in Vista and they're a lot louder.
