MacBook Pro :: Wireless Constantly Dropping Running Leopard 10.6.8

Jun 21, 2012

I am having a huge issue with my wireless dropping once connected to my MacBook Pro (Model A1278) 13.3". Wireless connections are not dropping on my iPad/Laptops/Iphone. Running Leopard 10.6.8 and have updated everything. It started about a month ago and is inconsistent in terms of how long I stay connected, but never more than 10mins. Luckily I run an SSD and can reboot in 10seconds.

I'm having trouble with my macbook. It's dropping the wireless signal right and left...sorta. Airport isn't disconnecting, it just stops recognizing the signal until I cycle the airport card off and on.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: My Free Memory Dropping Constantly

Apr 9, 2012

I just experienced something totally weird on my Snow Leopard. It starts suddenly dropping in the free memory (green) in my activity monitor with around 10 MB per second and the inactive (purple) memory grows. And it doesn't stop until it hits 10 free MB.

Mac Pro :: 2006 Dropping APX Signal Constantly?

May 18, 2009

I'm curious if anyone else has this problem, and if so, how to fix it. First of all, I'm convinced this mac pro is a lemon, and it was supposed to get replaced on my last repair but the Apple Store decided not to. (Even after promising they would)

I've been through 4 ATI X1900XT graphics cards, a logic board, a super drive, and a failed hard drive. Basically, I've not been able to really use my Mac Pro since December 2008. It's been in and out of service consistently since then.

Anyways, I just got it back last night and was having problems keeping the airport connected. (BTW- it's done this before, but not since having my logic board replaced) It will pick up the signal, keep it for approx. 2 minutes, then drop it and "scan for networks" it will then find it again on it's own, and repeat the process over and over and over.

I figured it was possibly software so I went through the trouble this morning of doing an erase and install on the machine, and much to my dismay that did nothing to solve the problem. I am unable to update any of my software, which means I can't use Aperture (because my library is on 2.1.3 and my disc copy is 2.0) so I basically can't use the computer until this is addressed.

Has anyone else experienced this before? My mac pro is not far at all from our Airport Extreme Base Station (the first N version). My macbook get's full signal pretty much all the time. Even my iPhone does.

Intel Mac :: It Is Constantly Dropping Wifi Signal

Mar 18, 2012

My iMac (purchased Feb 6) is constantly dropping the wifi signal. It seems to happen randomly...sometimes it's there, sometimes not and I must go to Networking icon and all the steps to reconnect!. (My iPad2 and IPhone are not having this problem...or perhaps their 3G has kept me from noticing.)

Applications :: VMware 3 Is Dropping The Network Adapter Constantly?

Oct 28, 2009

Coming from a perfect working copy of VM2 and XPPro now to VM3 and XPPro (+ 7 Ultimate) both machines drop the network constantly now with VM3. The network adapter becomes unavailable and sometimes 7 can repair the connection by restarting the adapter, but sometimes a full reboot of the entire iMac is required.

I never lose connection on the Mac side, only the VM side. If you are running VM3 and having this issue please post up, or if you have a solution that would be great.

EDIT: VMWare sets by default that you use the Mac's NAT setting in Virtual Machine>Network Adapter, but the proper setting is actually Bridged>"your router".

MacBook :: Why Does Wireless Keep Dropping

Aug 8, 2008

Often times, the signal gets weak.... and then dies. I know its not my router cause my iPod touch is able to connect to it fine. And then it took me 20-30mins to reconnect. At some points, it see the router, but then says "connection timeout" or it just doesn't connect and then my router disappears.

OS X :: Macbook Pro Keeps Dropping Wireless Connection???

Aug 27, 2009

Is there something wrong with my computer?? Some special update that I don't know about?? this is so annoying!! I'm running Leopard 10.5.8 but this happened also on 10.5.7 and I am using an early macbook pro model - about 3 years old. I will be connected to the wireless fine all day then like right now it drops the signal and i have to hook my computer up to an ethernet cable. I can restart modem, router, and computer but I haven't found a solution except to try again in a couple of hours and it will work fine. I know it's a problem with the computer itself and my apple care just expired so i hope it's not a hardware issue. Anyone know anything? I've tried changing the password protection on the router but still same result. Just pissed off that my $3000 computer can't hold a wireless signal.

MacBook Pro :: Wireless Router Dropping Connection?

Sep 3, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro running OS X (10.6.8) and I have a Netgear DGN1000 wireless modem router. My laptop wireless connection keeps dropping out lately but the internet connection itself is okay - my provider tested and no dropouts show up so it is just the wireless connect from my laptop thats dropping out.

OS X :: Macbook Having Kernel Panics And Dropping Wireless Connection?

Sep 4, 2009

I'm running OS X version 10.4.11 (Tiger). It's a 13" Macbook, two years old, from August 2007. I've recently been having a bunch of problems with it.

First, it drops its wireless connection a lot. Most of the time this happens while I'm playing World of Warcraft, but I've seen it happen even when I'm not. Everyone else connected to the wireless will have absolutely no problem with it, but my Airport icon in the upper righthand corner of my screen will go grey and then connect again, then go grey, connect, etc. I also experience a lot of latency in my connection when others don't (example with WoW... someone else will have 98ms latency, and mine will shoot up to 2500ms or so). Most of the time when this happens my entire computer seizes up. My game skips, my iTunes skips, my mouse skips or won't even move, I can't type or click, etc. Additionally, I've had it happen even when I'm connected to the internet with an ethernet cable with Airport turned off, and my internet connection will die completely until I restart my computer.

I've had problems with this computer in the past as well. About two months after I bought it, it wouldn't boot up and I had to reinstall the operating system. Then a year after I bought it, my motherboard crashed, and they couldn't really tell me why it might've happened.

Second, I've had two kernel panics in the past two months. The first one was July 18th, 2009, and the second one happened just about half an hour ago today (Sept 4th). The panic.log is as follows (both dates are included):

MacBook Pro :: Poor Wireless Reception - Connection Dropping

Jan 1, 2010

Two days ago I got a 'new' refurbished 13" MBP from Apple to replace my aging 2006 MB. It's ok, but not quite as nice as I expected. One major thing I've noticed is that the wireless reception is much worse than my old MacBook. They're both connected to a Netgear WGR614 v9, but the MB is getting about 2/4 bars, while the MBP is constantly dropping the connection. In fact, right now I have the MB booted in Win7 and it's running Connectify, in order to share the connection with the MBP. I'm downloading the latest software updates right now, and then I'll see if any firmware is available, but I doubt that will make much of a difference. Is this because the new MBP is made from aluminum?

Intel Mac :: Running Constantly Hot - Changed The Hard Drive But It Is Running Hot?

Mar 5, 2012

I've had an iMac for just about a year and over time I guess I just didn't notice but the machine always ran very quietly.  At the same time the back of the computer would heat up so bad that it would nearly burn my hand if I left it there.  Well last week I decided to upgrade to Lion from Snow Leopard and when I did the install failed and froze up the hard drive.  I took the computer in to the apple store and they determined that it had to have a new hard drive installed because the old one (only a year old) had a physical malfunction (was broke).  So anyway I have my iMac back and get it started up, backed up from time machine, and then finally get Lion istalled - and now all of the sudden I notice that the fans in the computer are CONSTANTLY blowing - I can hear them spinning and can hear the air venting out of the back of the computer - and the computer is STILL really hot on the backside of the screen.   

So now I am wondering if the originial problem was the computer heating up and if that may have broken the otherwise good hard drive?  Also now that I have a new hard drive - should I be concerned about the fans being on ALL the time?  I mean they never go off.  Even when I leave the computer for hours and come back to it and the screen is asleep the fans are STILL buzzing away at top speed. Here is the stats on the computer at the time that I'm typing this note - there are no other programs running than Firefox and Mail.  Also - I don't know what the optical drive is exaclty - but if it's the DVD drive (superdrive) - there is nothing in the DVD disc drive

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Fan Constantly Running?

Jun 26, 2014

For a couple of days the fan of my (15" late 2011) MacBook Pro has been constantly running and the Mac has become sluggish. The CPU temperature is 156 °F. It seems that the problem would be caused by "coreservicesd" process taking a huge percentage (57%) of the Mac RAM.

I am running OS X 10.9.3 with 8 Go. RAM and 500 Go. HD

MacBook :: Fan Running Constantly With Loud Noise

Jun 22, 2010

I've just purchased a new Macbook. I'm very happy with it aside from the fan noise, which seems a little loud to me. Now, before I bring it into the Apple Store to have it looked at I just want to check and see if maybe I'm just being overly picky. I downloaded iStat, based on some Google searching I did on the subject and my fans are running around 2000 rpm, which I understand is normal. But in my apartment, which is admittedly quiet, I can hear my fan running constantly. It isn't extremely loud, but it isn't totally quiet either. I'm just wondering what level of noise I should reasonably expect out of my Macbook.

MacBook Pro :: Fan Almost Running Constantly Even When Half Of CPU Idle

Mar 23, 2012

The fan is almost constantly running, it shouldn't be. The Activity monitor at the moment is showing that 45% of CPU is idle. About a third of my drive is free. I have 500 Gb of SSD, so there are no moving disk heads. The screen is turned up to a level I want to work with. I am running the regular stuff -- Word, Firefox, Mail and other Apple apps, all usual stuff. The MBP sits on a clear glass desk so heat can disburse through the glass, but the fan is still running. The MBP is about two years old. Lion.

MacBook Pro :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.3) Fan Running Constantly / CPU Clogged Up

Jun 3, 2014

I have a 13" MacBook Pro Mid 2012 model. Specs: Processor  2.9 GHz Intel Core i7, Memory  8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Graphics  Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB, Software  OS X 10.9.2 (13C64). A couple months ago I went to turn on my computer and I had a blinking folder with a question mark. I diagnosed the problem as a burned out SATA cable. I looked up the serial number of the cable I needed to order, ordered it, and in a couple weeks it arrived. After installing the new cable, I turned on my computer, and voila, no more blinking folder.

However, I noticed that the fan was really loud. Once logged in, I noticed the displays were laggy, and all video I tried to watch was very choppy. I decided to download iStat menus to see what was going on with my computer. Once I checked it, it showed that the cpu was 100% clogged up with 0% on idle. But the crazy part is that 89% of the CPU's tasks showed up as system, and under system, mainly kernal_task.

I restarted my computer, resetted the PRAM (which every once in a while would work regarding the clogged CPU but never the fan), but nothing has worked. Before this problem I was editing video projects for my broadcasting class on Premiere Pro with minor lag spikes. Now, I cannot even render a 5 second clip. I was reading somewhere that my heat sensor may be out, causing the fan to run, but I didnt know if that causes my CPU to clog up...

MacBook :: Early 2011 13 Inch I5 Fan Running Constantly

Apr 8, 2012

I currently have a 13 inch MBP early 2011 notebook that has a fan running constantly. The fans are not making horrendous noises indicating that the fan is broken or that a foreign object is bouncing around in my computer, but more so you can just hear the fans operating especially in a quiet room. The sound is very soft but in a dead silent room you can hear it working, you can even make out the sound even while typing. I am pretty sure my computer isn't broken, nor have I downloaded anything I am not supposed to that would allow my fans to make the noise. I bought this computer on the 26th of December and all I am using it for is simply MS word and logic pro 9. I uninstalled logic pro 9 a month ago due to my family buying an iMac and even then I can still hear the fan moving. I am curious as to what you all think, I may just bring it into the Apple store because it's quite frustrating having to write a paper and all you can hear is the sound of the fan working. My fans are running at 2000rpm and my research tells me that that number is normal.

MacBook Pro :: Fan Constantly Running At 6000 RPM Majority Of Time

Jun 17, 2014

Over the past two weeks my MacBook Pro has been regularly having issues with the fan constantly running at 6000 RPM after being on for about half an hour on most days and sometimes shorter or longer. originally i thought the problem was in relation to a kernel process as it started running at 300% around the same time however after fixing that issue by removing the model identifier from ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/contents/resources and having the fans cleaned out the issue is still occuring.

i have tried a partial and full restore of the system as well as a fresh install on a new hard drive however both the kernel and the fan problem reappears with each step taken. while the kernel problem is easily solved i was wondering if the fix was causing the fan issue to continue due to the file deleted or if there is a underlying software / hardware problem due to this problem persisting through restores and clean installs.

At this moment the fan seems to be running okay however for the past few days after a short while the fan started reaching 6000RPM with no tasks running and i am not convinced that the problem has been solved as nothing has been done to the machine since yesterday.

OS X :: Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping On IMac C2D?

Jan 24, 2007

My iMac has been connected wirelessly to my D-Link DI-604 802.11g router for near 4 months now.

About 3 days ago, the iMac started to exhibit strange problems.

Every 3-4 minutes, the connection drops.

The airport icon at the top shows full bars (and the router is about 2 feet from the iMac) but the internet does not work anymore.

Also, if I deconnect and try to reconnect, at first it gives me an error ("there was an error connecting to network XXX"), then my network disappears from the list for 1-2minutes and then I can connect.

I think it has to do with an authentication problem but the password is correct etc.

I don't know what may cause this.

My PC with a wireless card is unaffected.

It seems to be a software problem with my iMac.
