MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Internet Through IPhone Possible?

Aug 20, 2009

I am a first time MacBook Pro user. I bought this laptop for my business and, when on travel, will need to connect my laptop to the Internet wirelessly. Can I connect my MacBook to the Internet through my I-Phone? Will I need to add software to one or both systems (I-Phone and MacBook) to do this?

As a backup, are there any pay-as-you-go aircards that actually work on a Mac system? I have heard/read negative things about the Virgin Mobile Aircard. Bottom line is that I need reliable connectivity on occasion, thus I do not need a 1 or 2 year contract.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting IPhone 3G Via Bluetooth

Aug 1, 2009

I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.

MacBook Air :: IPhone 6 Keeps Connecting And Disconnecting Via USB Cable

Dec 7, 2014

Had my iPhone 6 replaced today from an authorized service provider.

Wanted to sync the iPhone to my Macbook Air but when I connect it, it keeps on connecting and disconnecting.  

I tried to.. 

1. Insert the USB cable into the other port (there are 2 built-in ports)  This did not work; problem persists

2. Plug in my iPhone 5 into both ports The iPhone 5 is able to connect with no problems.

3. Plug in my iPhone 6 into another laptop with iTunes installed. The iPhone 6 is able to connect with no problems. 

It was only after some minor fidgeting with the end of the USB cable (near to the phone) that I am able to sync, but this is not a perm fix.

Is it my Macbook Air's USB port that is causing the problems? Or is it my new iPhone 6? (although I am doubtful since I can connect to another laptop)

Info:
MacBook Air, OS X Yosemite (10.10)

MacBook Pro :: Its Not Connecting To Internet When Waking Up

Mar 17, 2012

When I wake my two-week-old MacBook Pro up, my Airport Base Station's wireless network shows connection, but I do not have internet for a much, much longer period of time than normal. This only started a few days ago. Prior to that, it was working just fine.

I've tried closing my browser (Chrome), starting another browser (Safari), and restarting. All of these attempts have met with success and failure. Sometimes, doing nothing and waiting for ~2 minutes does the trick.I'd simply like my MBP to connect to the internet ASAP upon waking up.I did no software upgrades recently

I am trying to use mac apps and most of them won't connect to the internet even though there is full bars on internet. For example trying to register the program "paralells" just gives me the message Your mac is not connected to the internet or so on.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting 2 Macs To One Internet Connection?

Jan 9, 2011

My notebook is about to arrive and I'm trying to learn how to connect two macs to a single internet connection. I'm starting from scratch, really -- I'm learning what a router / switch / ethernet are! Ideally, it would be nice if I could keep my existing cable connection to my Imac and install a wireless connection to my notebook. But I don't know if it is possible and how to do that. I've not found clear advices on such installation, yet. Also, since I'll move in June, I searching for the cheapest solution.

MacBook Air :: ITunes Not Connecting To IPhone - Pairing Record Missing

Apr 5, 2008

I used to have all my data on my MacBook and since I bought the Air I started transferring everything to it. Everything was fine until I tried to hook my iphone on the usb and sync it. The iphone drops the connection with the itunes and the whole syncing progress cancels. I've tried every possible advice I found in other forums but nothing worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, I tried installing earlier version of itunes, I restored my iphone (on my other mac), I manually deleted some itunes program files before reinstalling the new itunes....nothing nothing nothing. I keep getting error messages like:

"ITunes could not connect to the iphone because the pairing record is missing"
"Application AppleMobileDeviceHelper quit unexpectedly"
"ITunes could not connect to iphone because an invalid response was received from the device"
And every time i try to restore iphone from the air i get an error(6).....

While everything works great on the old Macbook, the Macbook Air seems to have problems connecting with the phone. The funny thing is that even if the connection between iphone and itunes drops, I can still manage to "see" the iphone from "iphoto" and import pics on my Air. I really don't know what's going on here and there seems to be no one that knows what I should do. Furthermore, when i plug my scanner on the air, it doesn't respond at all. It's as if the usb slot ain't powerful enough to connect with those devices. The scanner also works great on my old Macbook.

I have connected my Aluminium Macbook (2008) to my HDTV via a Mini Display to HD port.This works fine when I mirror the image from my macbook. When I turn off mirror image however (IE effectively having two seperate screens) my internet slows down drastically. In some cases it also disconnects.

OS X :: Connecting IPhone To Mac Via USB

Aug 27, 2009

I'm trying to connect an iPhone to a Mac Mini via USB. The cable is known to be good. The USB ports all work with other USB devices. The iPhone works with USB devices on other computers AND if I plug it directly into the wall. When restart the computer with the iPhone plugged in, it connects while the OS is not in the ROM. As soon, however, as the OS starts to boot again, the iPhone disconnects.

I plug the iPhone in and nothing happens, including not indicating that it's charging (this is the problem). With the iPhone still plugged in, I restart the Mac. After all the open applications quit and the finder disappears, the iPhone chirps indicating that it's connected and charging. It stays charging while the Mac cycles through the rest of the restart. When, however, the Mac gets to the point where it starts booting the OS, the iPhone chirps again indicating that it's been disconnected.

OS X :: Slow Internet On MacBook - IPhone Fine On Same Network

Jun 1, 2009

Safari on my 2.16ghz c2d Macbook has ground to a halt all of a sudden. Takes around 30/40 seconds to change between pages on the Forums here, for example. I thought this might just be a Safari 4 bug, but having the same (in fact slightly worse) experience with firefox. Odd thing is that my iPhone, on the same wirelss network is performing at normal (i.e. much faster) speeds. Running 10.5.7, no new apps, downloads or plug-ins, and I've reset safari & rebooted. Even repaired disk permissions. No improvement.

OS X :: Unable To Connecting To Internet?

Aug 8, 2009

I'm an iBook G4 user. I've had my computer for about 4 years and never had any problems, but in the past two weeks, I've been experiencing a lot of difficulty with my internet.

The problem's got to be with airport, because I'm connected right now with an ethernet cable and am having no issues.

Using my airport, I can still usually connect to the internet-- in fact, when I first connect to a wireless network, I have strong signal strength-- but I lose my internet connection after just a few minutes.

When I click on "Open internet connect," I can often reconnect to the network, but then I get the error message "out of range of network" and am booted off again.

This has happened to me on two separate internet networks-- both in my home and at the library-- so I think the problem is with my computer, not the signal.

There's not any physical object blocking the signal as far as I can see, and I've been able to use this wireless network in the past without any problems. (It's my partner's network and is and password protected, so it's not like I'm stealing it from someone next door or something.)

I'm running Mac OS X.

I've looked at getting airport express, but I don't want to pay money for something that may or may not fix the problem.

Hardware :: Best Way Of Connecting To Internet

Aug 17, 2009

I have had non stop trouble with my internet connection. I use Tiscali in the UK via a Netgear router and an Airport Extreme (the UFO shaped one). I now cannot access the web again and have been told by Tiscali that they do not provide technical help for either Apple or Netgear. A couple of questions. What is the benefit of using a router and airport extreme? Who is the best broadband provider for mac in the UK?
