OS X :: 10.4.11 Macbook Auto Connects To Someone Elses Wireless?

Mar 4, 2009

I've been having an issue with my wireless for a while now where each time I turn on my Macbook it auto connects to a neighbours wireless rather than my own despite it being set as the default location.

I've tried trashing preferences, rebuilding my wireless configuration etc... but it still connects to my neighbours wireless and not mine.

Also, it's recently decided that each time they turn on or off their wireless it'll temporarily interfere with mine and kick me offline (it doesn't do the same for my girlfriend who is connected through an Acer laptop)

Is there a way to change this?

It's not too much hassle manually changing networks but enough of one that I'm posting this thread!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: IMac Never Automatically Connects To Home Wifi After Restart?

Jul 3, 2012

This problem never happens with my MBP - and it is running a CCC Clone of the same 10.7.x system. But whenever I restart my iMac 20.5" it never automatically connects at startup. I always have to touch the wifi symbol in the menu. After that I don't need to select my home network - it will then find it and connect. But until I do that it doesn't connect. This has happened ever since I've gotten this iMac. Also annoying is that the sound output upon startup always defaults to my Logitech headset regardless of how I left it set in Sound settings.

Mac Pro :: Internet Connects Briefly Via (wireless) And Then Disconnects After 30 Seconds

Aug 23, 2014

Recently got the new Mac pro and the internet connects briefly  via (wire less) and then disconnects after 30 secs. I notice the DNS server switches numbers. After this happens I no longer have internet connection.

Connecting via ethernet is no good either. It doesn't connect at all. I did do a migration from another system. I am wondering whether the setting were saved from my previous system and are getting corrupted with the new system.

Mar 7, 2012

I have a month old iMac 21.5" running Lion and a 17" Macbook Pro on SL From out of the box, I have had wifi issues with the iMac that have become worse since installing the wifi update last week. While my Macbook connects and stays connected with no issue, the iMac dropps the connection and looses all Access Points every 30 minutes to an hour. This is becoming a real head ache as I do allot of Facetime / Webnars.

Intel Mac :: Wireless Keeps Stopping Or Disconnecting (every 30 Mins)

Feb 13, 2012

I've just bought an Imac 21.5inch, mid 2011 - Lion 10.7.3 (11D50) and the wireless connection keeps stopping either it shows it's connected or it's not connected at all. This happens every 30 mins or so, sometimes after 5 minutes or sometimes I can get away for a few hours. I'm using a Draytek router with 3 Wifi aeriels and in the house I have 2 mac minis, an ipad, iphone, android phone and a couple of other PCs, none of which have this problem. I've tried changing the router from G to N and also checked who else nearby is in the same wifi settings, I'm set to 6 others set to 1 or 12. So wouldn't think there is interference. I've only just bought this machine so wondering if it's a problem with Lion or the iMAC.

Intel Mac :: Started Loosing Wireless Connection And When It Connects Then Work Very Slow?

Jun 13, 2012

I have a 27 inch, mid 2011 imac.  I bought it in March.  It has started losing its wireless connection.  The other issue is when it does connect it is very slow.  I have a netgear modem, I dont think this is the issue cause the IPAD, and wireless laptop connect fine.  I've also run a speed test, all wireless devices connect to 10Mbps and LAN devices connect up to 30 Mbps including the iMac when it is wired.  Could this be an issue with the airport card?  How would I know, how do I check?  What should I do?

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Waking Up And Not Connecting To Wireless Automatically

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.

OS X :: Automatically Log Into VPN When Connecting To Certain Wireless Networks?

Nov 20, 2005

so my University uses the lovely Cisco VPN Client. Easy to get it working, not a big deal, but it annoys me that I need to start it manually every time I switch wifi networks and such. Is there a way to automate this? I want to connect to the VPN whenever the Airport logs into one of the University's wifi networks. The Cisco client also supports command-line mode, so I could write a script for that. But the big question is: is there a "connected to wifi network" event I can hook into using AppleScript or something.

IMac :: Can Connect To HP Photosmart C4780 Wireless Printer Automatically

I have OSX 10.6 installed and I currently have my broadband connected by Ethernet connection. Airport seems to connect to my wireless router even though this is plugged in. HPSETUP appears as a device in the WI-FI drop down, however to print I need to select this from the dropdown. Can my iMac's wifi connect to this by default rather than my broadband connection?

MacBook Pro :: How To Access Cable That Connects To LCD

Dec 14, 2010

The screen on my macboook pro, 13inch, was messing up earlier, flickering and all.

I got trigger happy and decided to take the glass bezel off my MBP (I've done it before) and managed to disconnect the LCD screen from the rest of the MBP.

However now I can't accurately connect the LCD screen back to the cable it's connected to at the base of where the lcd screen would go.

I'm checking out the videos on PowerBook Medic for the macbook Pro and am seeing how they take off all these things such as the SuperDrive, fans, logic board, etc....but rather than taking off every single item am wondering which of these to take out in order to be able to pull out that cable ever so slightly, simply so I'll then be able to connect it to the LCD screen..

I'll keep researching online and also hope for any guidance tonight, seei as id really like to get this issue resolved before the night ends...not forcing me to leave a tangled MBP on my desk overnight.

MacBook Pro :: Mac Connects To Internet But Sometimes Won't Load Webpages

May 14, 2012

My computer is connected to the wireless internet, and other devices such as my brother's laptop and my cell phone are connected and working off of the internet fine. However, my computer is not loading webpages, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. It just all of a sudden stops and the blue bar won't go any further. I tried running the safari under the guest account and it worked fine.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Connect To Internet But IPad Connects Just Fine

Apr 17, 2012

MBP dropped connection and now all I get is an exclamation point where it used to show full bars. This happened right during a time I was online using Chrome! I tried restarting the MBP, resetting the router (or whatever that is called), removing and addine AirPort under System Prefs but nothing works. I'm using the iPad 2 to access the Internet and write this, so I know it works. My iPhone also connects just fine. Just the MBP that suddenly dropped and cannot connect.

MacBook Pro :: Retina - Wifi Connects And Drops Non Stop?

Jul 4, 2012

New to a Mac and I just received my new MBP Retina two days ago.  I am having a strange issue where right after i turn on the computer it will connect and drop my wifi connection over and over again.  If i turn wifi off and back on again it fixes the issue. 

I have the latest updates for the MBP so not sure if this is a hardware issue or a software bug. My router is also brand new from Linksys and is working flawlessly once i do the above steps.

MacBook Pro :: WPA2 Enterprise WiFi Connects Only After Restart

Aug 27, 2014

Whenever trying to connect to a WPA2 Enterprise WiFi network, I only get an IP address when it is the first time. (Authentication in itself works fine, it is getting an IP address that is the problem.) What I mean is the following: 

1. I start up the computer

2. I connect to the network just fine

3. Suppose now I turn Airport off

4. Then I turn Airport on again

5. Now it doesn't work anymore! I still get authenticated (PEAP) fine, but I now get a "self-assigned IP address" and can no longer connect to the Internet.

6. When I restart, the same happens, i.e., "go back to step 1" 

It seems as if the computer keeps a wrong cache of something, which is only cleared after restart? 

It is not a big deal, would have been worse if I couldn't connect at all, but still quite annoying that I have to restart every time.

MacBook Pro :: No Longer Connects To Network After AirPort Utility Update?

Jan 6, 2011

Software Update ran yesterday and I installed the AirPort Utility update (version 5.5.2), and now my MBP no longer connects to my home network when the SSID broadcast is disabled. When I enable the broadcast the network shows up in the list of available networks and I can connect to it, then I can disable it again and the MBP stays connected. But if it's disabled to begin with it won't connect.

I never had this problem before the update, and no other devices on the network are having any issues. Has anyone else had this problem yet, or know of a fix?

MacBook Pro :: Late 2011 No Longer Connects To VGA External Displays?

Apr 21, 2012

My late 2011 MBP (lion 10.7.3) used to connect to external displays through a VGA cable.  It has stopped doing so since recently and I am trying to find out why, and how to fix it.  The only changes I've applied to the system are (1) connect to a Thunderbolt display and (2) installed gfxCardStatus.  The MBP and Thunderbolt display work flawlessly together, with network, USB, and firewire connections operating.  gfxCardStatus has noticably increased my battery life (so I recommend it) and I'm aware that it needs to be in dynamic or dedicated GPU mode for external displays.  The VGA external displays do not work when gfxCardStatus is running in either dynamic or dedicated mode, or when I disable gfxCardStatus completely so that it does not show on the process list.

MacBook Pro :: WiFi Connects But Works Only Briefly On Networks Away From Home

Apr 28, 2012

I have no trouble using WiFi at home. But when I connect my new MacBook Pro to WiFi networks at cafes, airports, and hotels, I can connect and a page or two will load without a problem. But a minute or two later, the WiFi signal appears to be fine but no pages will load and e-mail messages can't be sent or received.  

If I turn WiFi off and reconnect to the same network, I can load another page or two and then it quits working. I don't have this problem when connecting to the same networks on my iPhone, so I'm assuming there's a problem with my computer or its settings.

2011 Macbook Pro Connects To Internet But Safari Doesn't Work

May 8, 2012

I am haveing and issue conencting. The probelm is when an ethernet connection is working Wifi is not, when Wifi is working ethernet is not. The issue is the netowrk control panel says Im always connected through wifi and ethernet 100% of the time but Safari or Firefox will not load a web page. It is strange because in Terminal I can ping any website. I'v restarted the router, the computer, I have even reloaded the OSX Lion. I have al the most up to date definitions. From a little bit of reasearch I see this is a ongoing issue and it is very frustrating. It is not a netowrk issue all my other devices work perfect when connected to wifi. 3 windows machines ipad iphone etc. Is the network card bad on the late 2011 macbooks?

When I click on network preferences -> Assist Me -> Diagnostics... the ISP, Internet & Server lights are red.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does It Keep Disconnecting From WiFi

Dec 8, 2014

After downloading Yosemite, my computer (macbook pro) keeps disconnecting my home wifi.  I had no problems with my wifi before and my roommates have no problems with it still (they do not have macs).  This is only happening at home though, when I go anywhere else, my wifi stays connected.  I have tried deleting/forgetting my wifi network and reconnecting, restarting my computer, i searched through my settings but I don't know what to do. It disconnects like every two minutes. When it disconnects and i go to reconnect, the wifi is still there and has full bars, my computer just doesn't stay connected to it.
