OS X V10.7 Lion :: Internet Connection Cutting Out Regularly Despite Wifi Signal Being Strong

Apr 30, 2012

I am having internet connection issues with my MacBook Pro 2011 - running the latest version of Lion OSX. My connection cuts out regularly (every 10 - 15 minutes) despite having a full wifi signal. It is happening on two different routers, in two different locations with two different ISP's. 

When I run Network Diagnostics ISP is the test that fails, but after a couple of seconds diagnostics fixes it until the next 10 - 15 minutes. The only other alternative is turning wifi off and on. Both of these only last for the 10 - 15 minutes before it cuts out again. 

It is very frustrating and research online seems to indicate it is a Lion issue. I have made an appointment with a genius, but browsing online it appears there is no solution. It is not acceptable.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Jun 2, 2012

My Wi-Fi drops out all the time and I have to reset the WiFi to reconnect. When I look in the signal bar is says it is still connected, this will happen about once every 2 to 3 minutes. I have contacted the apple help desk and was told it must be my modem. I have two phones, an ipad, 2 windows laptops and my macbook pro is the only one that has problems with the WiFi. have also taken it to a repair agent and was told it was my modem.

MacBook Pro :: Slow WiFi On Mid-2010 MBP - Signal Says Its Full Connected?

Sep 22, 2010

I have had my 15" i7 MBP for around a week now, and a handful of times (3 times last night) it just decided it doesnt want to connect to the internet.The WiFi Signal still says its connected full, and other laptops don't have an issue (not even my old 13" MacBook).I have tried changing the DNS to OpenDns and to Google's DNS but with no luck. The problem is intermittent, and it will be fine for a day, then it will just decide it doesn't want to work.

MacBook Pro :: No IP Address And Has Exclamation Mark Over WiFi Signal Symbol

Sep 5, 2014

My mbp retina is having wifi issues. It says there is no ip address and has an exclamation mark over the wifi signal symbol. I know it is not my router because everything else is working fine. I have tried adding a new location, clearing out system config, restarting the SMC and many other things. I cannot connect to the wifi but sometimes I will be able to randomly connect. If I were to sleep or restart the laptop, the wifi will not connect and its back to square one.

MacBook Pro :: AirPort WiFi Intermittent Dropouts With Full Signal Strength

Sep 11, 2007

I've recently converted to mac and replaced my 8 month old Vaio AR11s with a new white macbook(2.16ghz). Recently I am having all sorts of problems with the wireless. I've been reading this forum for a week of so now and realize that I am not alone with my WiFi woes. My problem is the fact that my wireless intermittently drops and although the signal strength is still showing full I have no internet connection until i turn off and on the airport card.. this happens on both psu and battery!

I have tried installing the 2007-004 update, deleting the airport.plist file and the 2007-002 update and it appears to fix the fault for a while but then it comes back. I' ve also messed with enable/disabling frame bursting,different channels on my netgear wnr834n router but my other mac(using ethernet, bought a 24" imac tuesday!) and wifes vista laptop (wifi 802.11g) are fine so I have ruled out the router.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Work With Slow Internet / Showing Full Wifi Signal Strength

Aug 18, 2010

Does anyone know how accurate the 2010 macbook pro wifi signal strength monitor is? There are times I have full bars but my internet is really slow, or stops working all together for a few minutes. I THINK, because I'm on a different floor than the router, which would explain reduced signal. BUT my computer says I have full bars.

MacBook Pro :: Acer Display Doesn't Receive Signal From Early 2011?

Apr 30, 2012

The screen of my MBP 13 was shattered over the weekend, so I'm rigging up an external screen to tide me until I can fix the glass/LCD at the end of term. I have purchased an Acer P196HQL display and the MBP recognizes it, but the external display says 'No Signal'. I went to the shop in town where I was given a Thunderbolt/Mini to DVI-D convertor which then has a DVI-D to VGA convertor to connect to the external's VGA port. My MBP has Intel HD 3000 Graphics 384 MB graphics and is a GPU type, if that's relevant. I'd love to be able to revise for exams off of this laptop.

OS X :: Won't Work With Different Wifi Signal

Oct 17, 2009

I recently got FIOS and I love it. My router is in my basement because I wanted to hardwire it into my ps3 and 360. Regardless, the WiFi signal is great throughout my house. For some reason, my Macbook keeps grabbing my neighbors unprotected WiFi signal. I guess on the 2nd floor of my house, his signal is stronger than mine.

It takes 2 seconds to switch it back, but it seems to grab it whenever I wake it from sleep and at other random times. I was thinking of telling my neighbor that he needs to protect his signal, but even if I dont, I want a way to prevent my mac from locking onto the wrong signal.

Running Snow Leopard.

OS X :: ADC To DVI Connection Giving Me No Signal?

May 2, 2009

I just hooked up my TV to my Mac using an ADC to DVI converter and a very long DVI to DVI. I'm getting a no signal message from my TV. I'm really new to Macs and therefore I'm sure I'm just missing a really simple way to change the display settings to output to both monitor and TV. I can't find any advanced display settings of any kind. I swear I tried to search the forums, but I couldn't find a thing.

Applications :: Real Player Downloader Doesn't Work - How To Repair

Oct 24, 2009

've been using Real Player and the Real Player downloader to download YouTube video clips, and until yesterday all was fine. Yesterday evening however, the downloader decided to stop working and now just sits there doing nothing when I play a YouTube clip. Real Player itself works fine.

I've already trashed and reinstalled Real Player twice but to no avail. The odd thing is every time I've reinstalled it it has remembered the clips I'd been playing before I trashed it.

OS X :: Unable To Block A Wifi Signal

Nov 10, 2009

I have 40 MacBooks in a small private High School. The High School is on a church campus. The school has 4 Airport Extreme's with an SSID of CCHS. On the same campus there are 2 other public WiFi networks. What I want to figure out without having to worry about blocking the Mac Addresses on 2 different routers everytime a new High School MacBook is being used it to setup on the MacBook so it won't connect to those WiFi signals. We use Apple Remote Desktop to monitor the MacBooks and sometimes the students are connected to other network and we can't see their laptops.

We have an Xserve server that all the MacBook's are bound to and can make changes to the MCX records but need to know what I can do in order to make it so they can't connect to these 2 other networks.

Hardware :: Switch Time Capsule To Wired Connection / Using Wifi Connection On Smartphone?

Feb 10, 2009

I have a Time Capsule wirelessly connected to my iMac. Since I've encountered some problems with backups because of intermittent wifi connection failures, I want to switch to a wired connection with an ethernet cable. I know I could fiddle with the wifi channels etc. but since the TC is just sitting next to my iMac anyway, I could profit from the higher bandwidth of a wired connection as well.Two questions:

1. What exactly do I have to do to make the switch? Are there any new settings I have to apply? Create a new network?

2. Will I still be able to use the wifi connection to get on the internet using my smartphone?

Applications :: Doesn't Find Real Colors When Pick Up Color From Webpages?

Dec 14, 2009

New Mac user here. I'm a webdesigner and would like to have a real color picker that picks... REAL colors. I've got the "Hex Color picker" application [URL] which integrates with the built-in color picker in my iMac but it doesn't find real colors when I pick up color from webpages. EX: Real color: #e8effeWhen I pick it up from my page, the Hex Color Picker tells me this is the color: #e2eafe which is not.Little annoying when you're a webdesigner. It's somewhat important to get the real colors.

PowerPC :: IBook Not Getting Good Wifi Signal

Oct 25, 2006

Just installed an Airport Extreme card in an iBook G4 (running Panther). Signal strength within a few feet of the wireless router (Netgear) is usually high to medium. But when I leave the room it's in the signal drops all the sudden. I haven't had much experience with wireless networking, so I'm not that familiar with this. We do have a lot of cables and wires related to the computers in the main room where the router is, could that be "blocking" the signal from outside that room?

OS X :: Time Capsule Has Really Weak Wifi Signal

Apr 15, 2009

We have high speed cable w/ which plugs straight into a router, the time capsule is plugged into the router, and our printer is connected to the time capsule, unfortunately, the actual Motorola (an old) router that the time capsule is plugged into, is much faster, even 2-3x (perhaps more) faster than the time machine on Wi-Fi, my iPod Touch barely loads anything on it (even right next to it), and my dads iPhone only works on the time capsule network.

(This is 2008 Model time capsule, not the newer 2009 one)

The MB Pro is normally within 3-7 meters of the time capsule,
I'm not sure why it's so slow, especially when the laptop (MB Pro) is down in the bedroom (maybe 20-25 meters away, in a very open house), it loads incredibly slow! I'm wondering if this is normal behavior? or are there settings to configure or what? I was also thinking of getting the newer model, and get an apple TV, but I'm worried that it might be incredibly slow, based on this previous model we have.

Hardware :: Won't Work With Time Capsule And Wifi Signal

Oct 31, 2010

I have a time capsule hooked up to my mac mini. I don't use it for anything but the hard drive anymore so it is just plugged into the LAN connection. My Mac Mini is getting horrible wifi signal but my MacBook Pro is getting great signal in the same room. I was wondering if the Time Capsule can be used to receive the wifi and run it to my Mac Mini threw the LAN connection? Or can the Time Capsule be used as a repeater and boost the wifi signal?
