MacBook Pro :: Connecting To External Display - Apple Mini Displayport To DVI And DVI To DVI Cable

Oct 7, 2009

I have a presentation tomorrow and need to hook up my MBP to the projector in class. I bought an Apple Mini Displayport to DVI cable, and a DVI to DVI cable. I thought this would be the case, but come to find out the system does not support DVI. So I had to run to Best buy to get a DVI to VGA cable. I tried out the MDP > DVI > VGA rig on my external monitor and got nothing. The screen on my MBP responded by turning blue for a second and then back to normal...but the monitor said "No Signal". Is this some jargon with DVI-D and DVI-I? I need to know by tomorrow morning if I have to run back to the Apple Store and get a Mini Displayport to VGA cable.

MacBook Pro :: How Can I Connect To WiFi? - Using Charter Cable

Nov 17, 2009

I just moved into my cousins house, which is a lot closer to my university. For the past year have lived about 20 miles away and fortunately now am under 3 miles away.My current situation (don't wanna call it a problem, hoping we'll find a solution) is that his WiFi network is located on one end of his house, while i'm staying on the other side. His house isn't somewhat big, def. more vast than anything i'm used to...but the WiFi is on the south side of the house. My guest bedroom and small work area is on the north side, i'm guessing 40 or 50ft away.He had WiFi using Charter Cable and won't budge drilling another hole in the middle of the house so I could get reception. Nor will he have a long cable from the south side go to even the middle of the home.

MacBook Air :: WiFi Clashes With Bluetooth - How To Fix It

Oct 29, 2008

I think I figured something out today (I haven't seen it posted else where). So I have been having WiFi trouble lately on all channels 2.4N and G, 5.0N. My Wifi would drop come back not reconnect etc... Then I started noticing my bluetooth connection to my keyboard (the metal apple one) drop out. Anyways I turned bluetooth off on my Air and now WiFi is stable, no problems... Maybe just a coincidence so will keep testing..

MacBook Pro :: Use WiFi Or Plug In Ethernet Cable On The Desk?

Jul 24, 2009

When you get home at your desk, put your MBP on the table plugging it to an external monitor or not, do you keep it running on WiFi or do you plug in an ethernet cable for your notebook? I am on a 25mbps line in my home and i find that when i plug in the cable my internet connection is more stable, faster and doesn't drop out sometimes. Because, sometimes on Wifi, websites take a little longer to load or it seems to not load at all. While on the ethernet cable everything is just speed of light instant.

I have also noticed that using vmware when i go away from the computer and puts windows to sleep, when i get back, it takes a while for windows to recognize the airport vmware driver and connect back to internet, while with the ethernet cable it is just instant (again). Noticed this while running windows live messenger and the time it takes to connect back. I also noticed that transferring files from my windows vista desktop computer to my macbook was alot faster on ethernet cable than on the wifi connection, even though my router supports 54mbps wifi. So are you guys satisfied with your wifi? Or do you use an ethernet cable for stability? Or am i the only one with minor wifi problems?

OS X :: Default Installation - Is Macbook Visible Over WiFi And Bluetooth

Nov 14, 2010

when installing OSX I connected to my wired ethernet router and went through the account setup giving my full real name, full address, email etc. and my first name as the short name. I gave accurate details thinking this was for live online registration with apple. I then found that my computer name was set as "<firstname> <surname>'s MacBook Pro" and it was all only for the admin account setup on the machine.

I've been using it for a week like this and I just found that AirPort was enabled by default and I can see all my neighbours listed as wifi hotspots. This now worries me, could my neighbours also see my computer name on their wifi lists as "<firstname> <surname>'s MacBook Pro"? If so this is telling everyone in the area that I have a Macbook Pro and they could find my address in the telephone directory from my surname.

MacBook Pro :: Use The Charger On Thunderbolt Display Cable?

Jun 12, 2012

I recently purchased a Macbook Pro and a Thunderbolt display. It appears when I plug my Macbook Pro in with the power adapter directly to an outlet, it charges fine. However, if I use the charger on my Thunderbolt display cable, the status reads "Not Charging"... sometimes. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it appears to toggle between charging and not charging. Is this a known issue with Macbook and Thunderbolt? I assume it should always be charging if it's plugged in and the battery is low.

Mac Pro :: How To Remove Bluetooth And WiFi Interference

Mar 26, 2008

Recently my Bluetooth has been a pain in the... erm... posterior. I changed the batteries in my new apple keyboard today and since then it has regularly dropped out and disconnected, thankfully it reconnects its self pretty quickly. My BT MightyMouse regularly becomes jittery and delayed for about 30 seconds or so at a time. Very annoying.

It my or may not be related, but I've read about Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interfering now and then.

MacBook :: Mini Display Port - Video Bluetooth Transmitter?

Feb 2, 2010

Has anyone heard of a bluetooth video transmitter/receiver? I currently have a 13" Alum MB connected to an 50" Sony LCD using a Mini Display Port to HDMI cable. Controlled by a Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard. This works fine, with the TV being approx. 12ft away from you. However, I'd really like to find an video bluetooth transmitter/receiver to connect to the Mini Display Port to make this setup truly wireless.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Bluetooth Audio Disconnects WiFi On 10.7.3?

Feb 22, 2012

I've had problems related to both WiFi and Bluetooth ever since going Lion. However, after updating to 10.7.3 (the large update) from 10.7.2 the WiFi always drops whenever I switch my Bluetooth audio on. It resumes  after disabling the bluetooth audio. Please note that Bluetooth is always on in both cases, I just switch the audio output. Tried resetting SMC and PRAM - didn't work

MacBook Air :: MBA External Monitor/dvi Cable?

Mar 28, 2009

I hook up a Samsung LCD to my MBA via the Mini DVI cable and everything works great. However, when I unhook the cable (regardless of whether the Mac is on/off), the Mac doesn't pick up that it is now only on a single display, when opening apps (say Firefox), and opens them as if they were on the secondary monitor (so I can only see the very left hand edge). I can't imagine that I would need to minimize or drag the window to the MBA display prior to unplugging the cable, every single time...?

The only work around I have been able to find is drop the display resolution to 8x6 and grab the edge of the window and drag it over. I've tried "Detect Displays", restarting and other "tinkering" to no avail.

Hardware :: Bluetooth Keyboard Interfering With Wifi Signal - How To Avoid It

Jul 20, 2009

I had the problem of continual disruption of my wifi connection. I eventually tracked down the source of this problem to interference with the wifi signal from the bluetooth wireless keyboard.

When I turned bluetooth off, the wifi is solid and no disconnection, as soon as I turn it on again and use the wireless peripherals it starts to cut off the wifi at various times. To begin with it became so bad it was cutting the wifi every 5 seconds.

I thought I had solved the problem by accessing the wireless router and changing the signal number, you know 1 through 13 or so.
