Is it possible to create a WiFi-Hotspot from my MacBookPro if it's connected to a WiFi-Network? The reason why I'm asking this question is because in my school you can only connect Laptops to the WiFi. So I thought, I could create a Hotspot from my Mac to connect my iPhone to the Internet/Mac-Hotspot.
I use a 4G Galaxy Nexus to broadcast a private WPA2 network.¬† The 4G signal is always strong, and I've verified that the internet is active on the broadcasting device, and that other non-Apple devices maintain a solid connection.¬† However my macbook pro does not lose the network connection, the internet stops working only on the macbook pro and I must "turn Wifi Off" and back on using the top right menu icon in order for the internet connection to resume working on the laptop.¬†It will stop working every 5-10 minutes.
I have a new MBA that I can't get to connect to my Android Incredible's Hotspot. I've tried every security setting and of course the no security setting. My phone does show up in the available Wifi networks. BTW my Vista laptop connects without a problem.
I've encountered the situation a few times while traveling where you have cable connection but no WiFi. Since I now travel only with iPhone and iPad (no laptop), can I just connect an old AirPort Express A1084 to the router and expect WiFi? If so does the now unused AirPort Express kept the configuration of my home network e.g. name and password?
I installed this proxy extension in chrome (cant remember what its called) but i couldn't get it to work properly so i removed it. However now i have a hotspot shield banner at the top of my browser and i cant figure out how to remove it!
when i installed that chrome extension it made no mention of hotspot shield and its REALLY pissing me off! I dont know what it is, i dont care, i just want rid of it.
Also, google thinks im a robot, telling me im sending out automated queries and Iv'e got to do a captcha every time i want to search.
I have been using Hotspot Shield for a few years now, but the most recent update is for some reason causing it to automatically launch at startup (it has the Hotspot Shield logo in the menu bar).
I have tried looking at the the Startup Items list in System Preferences and looking at the preferences within the application itself. I cannot seem to figure out how to prevent it from launching automatically.
I always used Hotspot Shield to watch American TV shows on the internet from Canada as it blocks my IP address. Ever since installing Snow Leopard Hotspot Shield freezes my internet whenever I try to connect with it.
My land line is dead, so no phone nor internet at home. But I can use my iPhone hotspot to get on the web from my iMac. Great, it works. I cannot send email from my computer using my iPhone's hot spot with Mail.
In the last couple of weeks, I have not been able to use the Personal Hotspot on my iPhone 4s via the USB/sync cable to either of two 2011 Macs, both running the latest version of Lion, with all relevant software updated, including Flashback removal & Java updates. The connection via Bluetooth & wi-fi is unaffected.¬†
Opening the Network System Preference pane, the connection is shown as iPhone USB, but it is not connected, even with all other internet access methods either deactivated or disconnected.¬†
This issue is related to Lion, as the G4 & G5 PPC Macs running 10.5.8 which I either use or administer are not affected by this problem. The iPhone is running on iOS 5.1 and is not jailbroken.¬†
Is it possible that the Flashback/Java issues and Apple's interpretation of their prevention/removal has affected this aspect of internet access via Personal Hotspot?
My 2010 15" MBP has constant Wifi dropouts, sometimes minutes at a time. Sometimes I have to reconnect. Yet it gets 4 bars. My MacBook never had these problems. It's generally slower, too. It's now useless for online video like Hulu. Anyone else seeing this? I wonder whether it's hardware (e.g. they moved the antenna, and/or because of the metal case) or software/drivers? I'm going to submit feedback after input from ya'll.
I have a pretty old Titanium Mac Book that runs OS 10.3.9.¬† It's a moderately slow machine, but still works-¬† and although I realize that it won't be able to stream video or anything, I figure it would work for email, and basic web browsing-¬† But I'm wondering if it's going to be compatible with any new products such as a USB wifi antenna - because the room where I want to use it won't alow for an ethernet connection-¬† ¬†Also, will the old 10.3.9 OS allow me to connect wifi to the newer airport extreme base stations?¬†
MacBook. 2Ghz Intel Core Duo. OS Snow Leopard 10.6.6. I'm running a 2006 MacBook with Snow Leopard. A few months back it started dropping wifi connection. Airport would show no connection but would list my network along with others in my building. If I tried to connect with my WPA password it would just time out. At this time I was running Leopard.
Since then I've done a few things.Tried running the Netgear router with no encryption at all (same thing happens). Will lose connection and then time out trying to connect I've tried the MacBook in a coffee shop with wifi access and at my parents (same NetGear router) and at my new apartment with a horrible Orange Livebox. Taken the MacBook in to see the genius bar at Glasgow Apple store. Worked fine for them, but I explained it was intermittent but we could not force it to fail. I'm sure if it ran for an hour it would. At present if I have the MacBook in the living room (where the Livebox router is situated) its fine and wont drop connection. If I walk some 5m to my bedroom it will work for approximately half and hour and then lose it. A few days ago I bought the Snow Leopard upgrade and installed it last night. MacBook runs a hell of a lot faster (yay!) but moving it away from the router and its dead as disco in half an hour.
So to clarify, the MacBook has been tested on 4 wifi networks/ locus with same issue. iPhone, Xbox 360 and PS3 all have no issues with dropping connection no matter where they are in the apartment.
Apartment is a new build and its walls are not made out of lead or kryptonite. Is this a hardware issue rather than software? When updating to Snow Leopard it was an update to the existing OS of Leopard not a clean install.
AIRPORT says the following in System Profiler.
Software Versions: Menu Extra:6.2.1 (621.1) configd plug-in:6.2.3 (623.2) System Profiler:6.0 (600.9) Network Preference:6.2.1 (621.1) AirPort Utility:5.5.2 (552.11)
I want to create a disk image of a Mac drive (.dmg file).I figured that it might not be a good idea to try and image a live disk, so I unmounted it (the user dragged the disk icon to the eject icon), and I confirmed it was unmounted by looking at /Volumes. To be clear here, this isn't the boot volume, that is /dev/disk0./dev/disk1 is an internal drive - as it happens it's the original drive for this OSX 10.4 G5, AND /Volumes/HITACHI is the mount point for an external USB drive.I have tried this twice.On both occassions, things seemed to go well, but after a few minutes (about 10 - 20 minutes), I observed that the target file on /Volumes/HITACHI stopped growing, then a bunch of unpleasant stuff started to happen:†
* I did lsof /Volumes/HITACHI/MacHD_20120201.dmg and found the PID of the diskimage binary, ps waux showed it was doing nothing (CPU% was 0.0). This indicates a stuck process to me.
* The hdutil command stopped producing '.'
* I could not cancel the hduitl command
* I could not rm the MacHD_20120201.dmg file
* I could not ls the /Volumes/HITACHI directory
* unlink also hung†
A little further into this, the Mac became unresponsive. I observed that the disk was now mounted again (grrr!). As a work around I switched the USB drive off and on, and Mac came good - all my terminals started to respond, the GUI responded for the user.My workaround has been to use CCC to make a clone of the disk - but I don't like this because I think .dmg files are much more convenient (for a start, now that I've used CCC I can't use the USB drive for anything else).
* Is my methodology wrong? Do I really need to umount the /dev/disk1
* Can you disable finder from automounting an internal hard drive (I am particularly interested in this)¬†
I am using at home an iMac connected ( with cable ) to my Home WiFi Router. All other products are using the same WIfI home network ( Without a cable ).Can I define my iMac to use ONLY MY HOME WIFI instead of other unwanted wifi networks ?
I didn't really know what category to post this but I'm using a macbook so why not.
Mac's can't run -bat files created on a windows desktop. If I would o create a new one on a mac would the commands be different than the ones from windows? And to create a .bat file you need a .txt file. But you can't create that with TextEdit. What app to use?
I've created in the past a clonezilla USB key for taking block level backup of my mac-mini and it works just fine to this day.
But today I tried to use the same USB key with my new MacBook Pro (it run Lion) and the USB doesn't appear even as an option to boot from when I press the option/alt key.¬†Has anyone managed to successfully create and boot from a USB key of Clonezilla?
What are the steps you used? and which iso image did you use of clonezilla with your macbook pro + lion?
I would suspect it's an EFI problem because I don't even see the USB as a viable bootable device. The USB key was repartitioned as a GPT 1-partition HFS+ disk, and then I followed that by the hdiutil command to convert the .iso image of the clonezilla cd to a .dmg file, and then used the dd command to copy it to the USB key.
tried two different .iso images... nothing worked for me with this mac book pro....¬†
