Oct 8, 2010

But i own two iphones, and my 3G signal is pretty weak in the hood where I live.

Is there a way i can have my macbook be as a router for my iPhones?

Mac Pro :: Internet Sharing - Wifi And IPhone - Weak Signal?

Feb 28, 2009

i'm trying to setup a mini wifi hotspot in my shoe box of a bedroom. I have a mac pro, iBook and iPhone and i can't seem to get either the iBook or iPhone to connect to an "Airport Internet sharing" connection.

I thought it might be the thick aluminium box hampering the signal but i'm literally about 6ft from the MP tower and really shouldn't have problems from that range should i?

MacBook :: Sharing Wifi/Airport With Iphone

Nov 18, 2010

So I have the 2010 White Unibody 2.4Ghz Macbook and the airport works perfectly fine whether I am at home, the library, school, etc. The problem I am having with it is when I am at home and using the airport, and my iPhone is also connected to the same network, the wifi will work on my iPhone but will stop working on my Macbook. It still shows I am connected but it will not connect to any webpages. As soon as I turn off the Wifi on my iPhone and refresh the page on my Macbook, it will load. Is there anything I can do to fix this. By the way, My Toshiba laptop has no problem with using Wifi the same time my iPhone is connected to it, my Macbook is the only one having problems.

MacBook Pro :: Internet Sharing Ethernet To Wifi?

Mar 19, 2012

I've been trying to connect over internet sharing from my Macbook pro to my i-pad 2 and am having some issues I hope someone can adress. I go to Settings>Sharing from ethernet then to wifi. I name the network choose a channel then add a password from there I get this error message. 

Are you sure you want to turn on Internet sharing?  

If your computer is connected to a network, turning on Internet sharing may affect the network settings of other computers and disrupt the network. Contact your system administrator before turning on Internet sharing.

OS X :: Internet Connection Sharing Via Bluetooth PAN?

Nov 7, 2008

I'm trying to setup my MacBook to allow internet connections to devices via Bluetooth PAN. In other words, getting a Palm Centro/Motorola Q9h to access the internet via the mac's internet connection over Bluetooth PAN.

I've enabled Internet sharing correctly, checked all the relevant boxes.

When the device connects to the Macbook, the Bluetooth PAN connection shows 'active', but it seems that the Macbook is not assigning an IP address, nor routing the packets.

Has anyone had any success with this?

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Get Internet Sharing In System Prefs To Work Via WiFi

Mar 22, 2012

Ever since updating to OS X 10.7.3 I can't get my Internet Sharing to function for wifi. I enable this to use my iPod at home. The computer 'says' Internet Sharing is on but my iPod searches and doesn't find a signal. Plus, the four bars at the top right of the screan do not change to a solid color with the arrow pointing up like it used to when enabled and working.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Internet Sharing - Reducing Wifi Power?

Apr 26, 2012

I'm sharing my Mac's internet connection over wifi to my iPad when I'm at work. Is there a way to reduce the output power of my wifi? I don't really need a signal beyond my cubicle. How would I reduce the wifi power settings to as low as possible on my Mac when it's in ad hoc mode?

OS X Mavericks :: Internet Sharing WiFi To Wired Ethernet

Jun 17, 2014

I have a Late 2013 MBP Retnia. I have WiFi access via a captured portal. I have other WiFi and Wired (Ethernet) devices that can not authenticate to a captured portal. 


1) On the single MBP mentioned can I connect to the captured portal WiFi via one band (say 2.4) and then become a WiFI hotspot with the other band (say 5)?

2) On the single MBP mentioned can I connect to the captured portal WiFi via one band (say 2.4) and then share the Internet connection to the Thunderbolt Ethernet connector?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Internet Sharing Dropping Wifi Signal After Update To 10.7.4

May 24, 2012

Equipment: iMac 21.5" 2.5GHz Quad Core i5  

Internet Set-up: Cable modem to iMac Ethernet 

Problem: After recent update to Lion 10.7.4, my Wi-Fi signal via Internet Sharing keeps dropping. Have multiple iDevices failing that were working perfectly with 10.7.3 (Nook and iPhone 4). iPhone shows full Wi-Fi signal strength and works for a short time after reset (via Wi-Fi off/on, Internet Sharing off/on). Continues to show full Wi-Fi signal strength but loses connection after 1-2 minutes. And not just internet connection; I can't transfer pics/vids from iPhone to iMac either. Have switched to a channel no one nearby is using (channel 9) to no avail.

Mac Pro :: Setup Internet Sharing / WiFi Icon On Menu Bar Has Arrow

Dec 10, 2014

I have an iPad and a Mac Pro so I set up internet sharing on the Mac Pro. It looks like it's working from the Mac Pro side -- the little WiFi icon on the menu bar has an arrow -- but the iPad simply will not connect to the internet. My Wifi connection preference tells me the correct network is selected, and the icons to the left of the name look right, but just right of the network name there's a spinning circle icon which means it's still waiting for a connection. 

Both were just upgraded to the latest OS (Yosemite 10.10.1 for the Pro, iOS 8.1.2 for the iPad) today, which means both were restarted today.

OS X :: Combine Wifi And Tethered IPhone For Increase Internet Access

Mar 24, 2010

I travel every week and each week I have to decide whether to use my tethered iPhone (not jailbroken) or the hotel Wifi. I pick which ever one seems fastest.

What I would like to do is combine both of these connections together and get better speeds. Or possibly assign one connection to one application (skype) and the other connection to firefox.

Software :: Bluetooth Macbook Pro And IPhone Connect To My IPhone 3G?

Jul 23, 2009

I can't seem to get my Macbook Pro 13" 2.26Ghz (OS 10.5.7) connect to my iPhone 3G (OS 3.0) via bluetooth. In the Bluetooth Setup Assistant the macbook sees the iPhone 3G, but they don't connect after I accept the connect on the iPhone 3G. The codes on the Macbook and iPhone are the same and, therefore, should connect.

I've searched the Apple Discussions (support) but there is no answer there.

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..

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.

Dec 2, 2014

2011 MacBook Air running Yosemite 

The bluetooth badly interferes with the wifi - with bluetooth on, wifi download is around 1mbps; without bluetooth it instantly jumps to 10+mbps.  Problem is - I need to work on an external monitor with the bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. 

Have tried altering wifi channels etc.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting IPhone 3G Via Bluetooth

Aug 1, 2009

I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.

Intel Mac :: When Sharing Internet Through Ethernet Wireless Internet Dies

May 22, 2012

For specific reasons, I needed to connect my Synology DS211 NAS to my iMac directly via its ethernet port.  I discovered that if I share my wireless internet connection (coming from my cable modem/wireless router) from wireless to ethernet, then the NAS would get the IP stuff it needed to show up. did that, voila, NAS is acting like a glorified external hard drive.  BUT, when I did that, I lost all internet connectivity on my iMac.  Still have full wireless signal.  preferences pane says I'm fully connected to my network with an IP address, but safari always fails to pull up any webpages, saying I'm not connected to the internet.As soon as  turn off the ethernet PORT, it all starts working again.  And to make it even crazier, I discovered that if I leave sharing my wireless internet via my ethernet port ON, but turn off the ethernet port (in pref pane), I can STILL access the NAS just like before.  That makes no sense - I'm sharing my internet via a port I have turned off, but it works? Anyway, why would Iose my airport wireless internet connection when the ethernet port is on - configured manually?

OS X :: Bluetooth Says Sharing Is Off But It Is On?

Apr 19, 2009

When trying to connect to another bluetooth device (a macbook pro) I get the following message in the bottom of the 'select bluetooth device' window:

"To use the service on this computer, turn on Bluetooth Sharing in its Sharing preferences"

So I go to the 'Sharing' preferences pane and Bluetooth Sharing is already check marked and says it is on.

I try again and I get the same message.

I have tried checking and re-checking the box as well as a repair disk permission, but neither worked.

For reference I am on a unibody macbook pro 2.53Ghz with OSX 10.5.6 installed.

MacBook Pro :: IPhone 5s Not Able To Pair With Laptop Through Bluetooth
