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 recently reinstalled MAC OS X on my unibody MBP. I've installed all the updates and it's been working fine until now. When it goes to sleep automatically I press a key and it wakes up then the Airport icon in the bar at the top of the desktop stays greyed out. I have to go in and manually connect to my router each time the machine wakes from sleep.
Just got a new MacBook Pro a few months ago. Migrated everything successfully from my old MBPro. Now, however, when I wake my computer each morning, it can't connect to the internet. It shows that my wifi is connected, but when I try to get mail or use Safari/Firefox/Chrome, it just spins until it tells me I have no internet connection. I then have to restart the computer and it works fine after that.Â
The fact that it works fine after restarting tells me it's something other than my wifi or my cable modem.Â
Since I upgraded to Lion my mid-2011 2.8 GHz Mac Pro takes about 10-15 seconds to connect to the internet. After waking from sleep in the past, I could launch my web browser and it was connected immediately. It is bad for my email. It is set to check every 2 minutes and I get a huge log of connection errors. I am using the ethernet port with a direct connect to the modem. I also have a wireless router for my MBP and it connects immediately through Airport. Why is my direct connect slower than Wi-Fi?

My Macbook Pro running on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63) says i have full connection to my wifi but anytime I try to open a web page it says I am not connected to the internet. I connect to my router wirelessly. I have tried running test and the MacBook says I should have full connection to the network and internet. I have a iPhone and a HP laptop working fine with the same router but my wifi doesn't seem to work at all on my MacBook,
recently my mbp has not been connecting with my network to the internet. everything else connects just fine. my mbp connects just fine to other networks. but when I try to connect it to my network it fails. it says something about having a self assigned ip address. any remedies on how to fix this?
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.
I just recently bought this MacBook. It apparently works everywhere else except on my home connection. I have a good feeling it probably has to do with my router. I have also tried to restart my macbook/router.
My computer used to connect to the internet straight away as it was turned on (wireless), but after a problem with downloading rental films with Itunes store, it has stopped connecting automatically.Â The fix for the film rentals was to delete a file called SC i think.Â I have had a dig around in all the network tabs
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. The same thing is happening with downloading more loops and sounds on garage band.

On Feb 18th 2012 4 new updates automatically installed. Since then, whenever I wake the Imac from sleep mode I have to manually re-connect to my wi-fi. Prior to the updates it did this automatically. I see nothing in Network or Airport Utility that controls this ("automatic" is already checked where appropriate). I'm running OS X Lion.
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.
I'm going to be spending a few days in the the middle of nowhere where my only option for the internet is using a landline telephone. I have no idea how this works...would this be the only thing I need?
I just bought my first Mac from ebay i'm a new user and don't know much about macs, I was using my ethernet to surf the web until my belking router comes in. So this is what I have done so far my desktop is wired to the router running XP the connection is fine and my setup is a WPA, my macbook is running 10.5.6 Lepord my router says the MB is connected to the router but I'm unable to connect to the internet. TCP/IP is set to DHCP my airport says status on, and that it has a self-assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet I've already have my MB set to share web, internet, files & printers on my network. Is there something i missed or i'm doing wrong I called belking and got no problems with the router we used many setup changes and I ran a hardware test on my MB and no problems were found.
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. This issue is resolved by turning on the mirror screen button, or unplugging the cable from the laptop.
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.
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.
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?
I currently have my mac connecting to a wireless network and have since plugged in a ethernet cable to use because I can get a better connection, but even with it plugged in I still seem to be connected to the wireless network How can I make it so its only using the ethernet connection?
I have G5 that I am running leopard on. I have an airpot extreme network setup in the house. The G5 shows its connected to the network but will not open internet pages. It was working fine a few days ago. I also have a Macbook that works great on the network and can connect to the internet. All the network settings seem to be the same for the G5 and the Macbook. Literally one day it worked and the next it did not. Is there a setting I am missing somewhere that would cause it not to be able to open internet pages?
I have an external monitor that I am trying to hook up to via the Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter. When it's not hooked up, the internet works, but as soon as I plug in the monitor, the internet stops working.
I was able to get this machine to connect to my wireless home network, yet I still get the "Server cannot be found" error. Have tried with the old IE program, then I downloaded an older version of Safari on my iMac and transferred it via disk to the PMG4. The safari loaded fine, a window opens, yet it will still not connect. There must be a setting I'm missing - can anybody tell me what it is?
i have a Macbook (2009), Snow Leopard, 60GB of HD free.My widgets, including BOM (Bureau of Meteorology), Adam Internet and Fetch do neither flip nor refresh. even when clicking on the 'i' button, or the refresh icon they neither flip nor refresh.presing Apple + R, having clicked on the icons did not work either.Does anyone have an idea how to fix this problem?
I recently picked up an iMac G3 running on panther. It is my first Mac and I know nothing at all about them. I was wondering if anybody could tell me how to set up the internet in computer. I have connected the IMac to the router via Ethernet cable.
Safari can connect to the server.Suddenly I have this problem. It will connect to some sites, but for the most part and searches in google etc ar nil. Just a gray screen in browser window. Chrome and FF work fine. Just Sarafi that is corrupt.What can be done beside hacking the system via Terminal?
I was recently given an old iBook (the one with the Clamshell design) from a friend and was wondering how would I go about hooking it up to my Television, and to the Internet? What do I need to do this?
