MacBook Pro :: Cannot Connect To Home Wireless Internet

Jun 24, 2012

So here is the issue.. when i first got my macbook, it connected to the wireless internet at my house perfectly and stayed connected. (I had an open wifi account) Then, we got a new router and we wanted to put a password on it so that no one could use our wireless connection without us knowing. 

Now my macbook will not connect to the wifi.. It just keeps telling me that the password is invalid. I have a TRENDnet router (TWE-632BRP) but my iphone connects to the wifi fine using the password.

Info:
MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

MacBook Pro :: Can't Connect To Internet - Using Wireless Modem To Connect To The Netgear Wgt624

Dec 27, 2007

I have a blackbook (intel core 2 duo) and I can connect to my landlord's wireless network (they have a netgear wgt624) but I can't actually use the web (Safari or Firefox will just "think"). I've tested the diagnostics and it confirms that my mac can connect to the network, but it cannot connect to the internet. The network uses WPA personal and it has a 19-aphanumeric passphrase.

*Also - would it be possible for me to extend the wireless range (and make it possible to browse the web) if I used my own 2wire wireless modem to connect to the netgear wgt624?

Macbook Wireless Internet Doesn't Work At Home

Mar 15, 2012

For some reason, my macbook's wireless internet doesn't work at home. It takes hours to load a simple page if it doesn't time out. The wireless works everywhere but at my house which is frustrating when taking it to apple. Other apple products and computers connect to the home wireless perfectly but not this laptop. Apple suggested a reformat, but it did not help.

Info:
Macbook early 2008, OS X 10.5.8, 2.4 intel core 2 duo, 4G RAM
Wireless:Bell internet, 2wire router (Tried all the different security configerations with no luck) Works great hardwired.

MacBook Pro :: Slow Internet Connect From Home

Apr 6, 2012

When I'm at my apartment with 18 mbps internet my MacBook Pro has absolutly no problems with the internet. When I come to my parents house to stay where they have 15 mbps internet my laptop is rediculously slow. I thought it was the fact that more people are connected but on every other device it works fine, my iPad and my parents PC's have no problem. I am at a complete loss I have tried to run a diagnostic multiple times and have done the DNS Servers 4.2.2.1. and 4.2.2.2

Hardware :: Macbook Won't Connect To Wireless Home Network?

Jan 14, 2008

I have a Netgear wireless router that is about 4 years old and has the latest firmware installed. Until now, I have had only Windows computers connected wirelessly and it has worked fine. We just got a new Macbook. When I try to connect to our network, it finds the network name but goes nowhere once I have entered the passphrase. Not being familiar with Macbooks I'm not sure what I'm missing. I did see somewhere that older versions of Airport required either a '$' preceeding the password or that the password should be enclosed with "". None of these things helped. What am I missing?

By the way, according to the Netgear docs, this router should work with Macs.

OS X :: New Mac Will Not Connect To Home Wireless

Apr 10, 2009

My wife recently got a Mac. I have used windows all my life so I'm trying to figure out how to do some fixing.Her computer does connect to at least one other public network (university) which is WEP protected, but will not connect to our home network. The network is fine because my computer (that I am writing from) is currently connected. The error is that the WEP password is determined to be "invalid" I have checked I have not mistyped it several times.

MacBook Pro :: It Can't Connect To Wireless Internet

Mar 30, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro that I have had from about 3 years now. It's been great but earlier this week, it wasn't able to connect to the internet here at my school (college). I didn't think too much of it because my schools internet is always spotty and goes down from time to time. Yet when I go on to my computer tonight nothing I do with my airport or computer will get my webpages to say anything other than "Server not found". I tried turning off my airport then back on and reselecting my network because usually that helps. It would say it connected and I would have full bars but still the same error message. I tried again, and when I did it this time, I did it from within the system/network preferences. When I did this, I watched the connection of my airport go red, then I would connect and it would go to yellow saying I had no IP address.

I would then sit and wait and eventually it would fully connect giving me the green go-a-head. But, again when I would open up my internet, I would get the "Sever not found" message. I would then quit my firefox all together and tried again that way and still same massage. I restarted my computer and tried again...nothing. I became more concerned because my roommate could get on the internet just fine and I could use the wireless in my room through my phone. I was consered that now this was a matter with my computer and not just the internet, so to make sure I got out my ethernet cable and hooked it up with my connection in my room.

MacBook Air :: Cannot Connect To Wireless From Internet Recovery

Jun 21, 2012

Have 2011 13" MacBook Air.  I erased my hard drive using cmd-r at startup to enter disk utility.  When I restarted, Internet Recovery automatically started to try and connect to my wireless.  It never asked for a password.  It never connected.  Error "-2002F".  Tried it again, this time selecting a new network, entering my network name and password.  Still will not connect.  Have repeated many times.  Looked at my access logs on router, it is not connecting.

OS X :: Connect To Home Network From Remote Internet Connection?

Mar 19, 2007

I have a non-fixed IP with BT for my home network and am curious if I can set things up to access my home machines and volumes when I am abroad. A step-by-step guide to this process would, no doubt, be useful to a number of MR members. If there is a kind soul who could post an idiot-proof set of instructions that would be great, and would perhaps be put up as a user guide here at MR.

IMac :: Unable To Connect To Existing Home Wireless Network

Feb 6, 2010

We have a PC in the upstairs office with cable/DSL router for Internet (through Comcast). This service also has a wireless connection. We have a Macbook laptop which connects effortlessly to our home network and we use it all over the house. We simply clicked the internet symbol on the top right (looks like a little amphitheater), selected out network, entered the password and have been connected ever since.

Today we brought home a new iMac and set it up in basement office. Tried the same routine. Clicked on the internet symbol, selected our network, noticed that the signal is just as strong as it is upstairs, typed in password but that's as far as we get.

I've gone the rounds with the Assist and the Utility features. I've shut the Airport on and off. I've tried setting up a new network. I do notice that the iMac has a "self-assigned" ISP "and cannot connect to the Internet." Does this mean I can't ever connect? Do we need to replace the self-assigned ISP with our Comcast IP address?

I've read here and there that our router might have Macs blocked and we could add this iMac as a secure system to get on the network. But we haven't played with the router's settings because we wouldn't know how. Besides, the Macbook connects fine.

Does this have anything to do with TimeMachine?

OS X :: Cannot Connect To Internet Via Ethernet Or Wireless

Oct 1, 2009

I'm brand new to Mac. I just got a MacBook Pro, and I've been having some troubles connecting to the internet at home. I have a LinkSys WRT54GS router with Firmware Version: v1.50.9. I'm unable to access the internet through both ethernet and wireless. Concerning wireless, I have tried connecting using WEP, and have tried entering passcodes both with and without an "$" and "0x" preceding the 10 digit WEP passcode. I have also tried switching the encryption over to WPA2, and still nothing. I have even disabled the security to see if it's able to connect -- it's not. I had some error regarding not being able to find it's IP or something along those lines.

Mac Mini Cannot Connect To Wireless Internet

Feb 14, 2012

I recently got wireless internet. Before, the Mini worked fine connected by cable. It has never been connected to a wireless before. The wireless router works correctly, my $250 PC connected to it instantly.  There is a yellow light on Airport and it automatically populates an IP address, whatever that means. I haven't installed any new software since it worked with a cable, no funky setup or third party anything- it's just a mac mini plugged into a TV I watch Netflix on and that's all. 

My ISP said it's a problem with the computer, the Mac free support could not fix it. I really don't want to pay for an extended warranty or phone support on something basic that this computer should just automatically do. I haven't tried typing in a manual IP address- I don't know what that address would be. If all else fails, I will just run a cable to it again.

OS X :: Unable To Connect To Internet Or Wireless Printer?

Aug 13, 2009

I was happy to get my mac pro yesterday, but upon setting it up, I couldn't get it to connect to my network. When I clicked I the airport logo and the top right, it said airport was on and I was connected to the network. However, when I opened up Safari I got nothing...just a screen that said something like "you are not connected to the internet." The last time I had a macbook, I turned it on and bam, I was connected to the internet right out of the box.

After trying to fix it for 30 minutes, I decided to reset my modem/router. After doing this, the macbook connected to the internet for a few hours and I went to bed. Now I come home today and it works for about 30 minutes and then stops working. Keep in mind, my PC is working flawlessly so I know my network is up and running. After about 30 minutes, it connects again...and then stops working again. Very frustrating. As I type this message, it still wont connect to the internet even though the computer says I'm connected to the network.

Another thing that makes me think there is a hardware problem is that the macbook wont connect to my wireless printer. I've installed the software 2x and right after going through the install procedure, it will print for about one minute and then it does nothing - I get a message that says something like "your printer is not on or not connected to the network." So then I went through the steps of connecting it again and again. Every time it would ask for the password to the network so I put it in and it says I'm connected....but nothing will print. After the 3rd time, I was finally able to make it to spit something out wirelessly from my macbook...but 5 minutes later it's back to saying my printer is not on or connected to the network. This is weird because initially it works and then it stops. During this whole procedure, my PC recognizes it just fine and prints within 5 seconds. For some reason the mac just wont do it.

I thought macs were supposed to just work, but this laptop has been more frustrating than any PC I've owned. Here I am with a new macbook that can't connect to the internet OR my printer. Granted, I know very little about computers so maybe I'm overlooking something simple.

If it's a hardware problem, do you think Apple will refund my money?

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Hardly Connect To Wireless Internet

Jan 25, 2010

I have been a mac user since 2006. Yesterday, I purchased an iBook G4 for my father, who I have converted from Windows to Macintosh. We are 99% satisfied. Everything works great except the wireless internet. Whenever the computer shuts off or goes to sleep, we have a difficult time re-connecting to the wireless internet. After five minutes of clicking on the wireless signal (at the top of the screen) and turning it on and off, we are able to get on. Once we connect, it does not seem to disconnect.

Mac Pro :: Can I Connect Two Macs To Share Wireless Internet Access?

Aug 28, 2006

I'm sure this has been posted, but my search pulled up hundreds of threads. After I scanned the first 50, I decided to just post my question.

I have to wait a few days (at most) for my job to register my MAC address so that the new Mac Pro has access to the network/internet via ethernet. It does not have an Airport card or Bluetooth. While I am waiting, is there a way to connect the Mac Pro to my Powerbook (which has Wifi internet access) such that it can piggyback on the internet connection as a temporary solution?

Software :: Parallels Won't Connect To Internet Via Verizon Wireless Modem?

OK, I am a newbie, as the name implies. I purchased a MacBook Pro with supposedly Leopard? Mac Os X (somewhere on the machine it said Tiger - does it matter?), with Parallels installed by the friendlies at MacMall. I start Windows and cannot connect to the Verizon wireless express card which is working just fine. The Parallel's User Manual is a joke... how do I make this thing work?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To Internet Via Ethernet Or Wi-fi / Internet Connects In Safe-mode

Jan 1, 2010

I'm running OSX 10.5.8 on a Macbook Pro, and today I've been unable to connect to the internet via ethernet or wi-fi, unless I'm in safe mode. Then everything seems to work as it should, which makes me believe that this is a software issue rather than a hardware problem. I've tried making a new account with administrator priveleges, but that doesn't solve my issue. Does anyone have any advice on how I can connect to the internet under my normal user account, rather than in safe mode? I should note that I won't be able to get my hands on my repair CD or perform a clean install of OSX because that stuff is at home, and I'm in college. Also, I'm at a university and don't have a router. I just use the campus-wide wi-fi. Finally, my roommate has no problem accessing the internet in our room via ethernet or wi-fi, but I do. Thanks for the help everyone.

MacBook :: Internet Says Have Internet But Wont Connect - Cannot Open System Preferences Or Internet Preferences

May 10, 2009

I have a macbook a little over a year old. It's my first mac and I love it. Yesterday though it started acting really weird. I first noticed that it was really, really hot and the fan was running. I turned it off and back on and here's what I found out:

Applications are being deleted from macbook. ITunes, IPhoto, iChat have clear question marks over icon. There are 8-10 blank spaces in the Applications folder where applications have been deleted. However, data is still there (ex. pictures still there, but no iPhoto).

Internet= Says I have internet but wont connect.

Cannot open " System Preferences" or "Internet Preferences".

If connected to home computer will connect to internet and allowed to open internet preferences but still no system preferences.

If shut down....takes a while to come back on and starts up 2-3 times.

Also "Preview" is gone. Now " ColorSync Utility" opens.

Is this my hard drive dying? I'm tech challenged, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

MacBook Pro :: Its Shutting Off The Home Wireless Network?

Mar 31, 2012

I've been reading through some of the other MBP wi-fi issues but couldn't find anyone discussing what I'm dealing with so I wanted to put this out there.   

I got a MBP earlier this week and, it seems like after powering down or shutting the MBP and reopening it, my wi-fi network at home shuts down or isn't recognized.  When this happens, I have to unplug my airport extreme and turn the internet on and off on my cable router so the wi-fi signal can be recognized on my wireless devices.  It's not just the MBP (running Lion 10.7.3) that can't find the wi-fi when this happens; my MacBook (running OSX 10.5.8), my TV with wi-fi and my wife's iPhone lose their signals also.  The airport extreme and my cable router still are showing that they're running when this happens (green light on airport). 

It only seems to happen when the MBP has been powered down or closed.  Not sure if it has something to do with the airport extreme router that's in the MBP.  It doesn't seem that anything is actually turning off the airport extreme but none of the devices can recognize the wi-fi signal after this happens.  Turning off and on the airport from either of the computers doesn't seem to do anything.  It requires a reboot to the airport.

Mac :: MacBook Pro Can't Connect To My Home Network?

Jun 13, 2010

Had my MacBook Pro for a little a month now, and I love it. The problem I am faced with now is that I can't connect to my home network. My iMac is able to connect perfectly, but whenever I try to connect with my MBP, it won't connect, or will assign it's own IP and then states "You will not be able to connect to the internet." It's quiet annoying when I can't use my laptop to connect to the internet, what I am faced to do right now is take my iMac and bluetooth tether it to my MBP. This is fine if I'm in the same room, but it won't work when I'm upstairs. Does anyone know what's wrong? Should I contact my Apple store?
