MacBook :: Finding Wireless Adapter?

Mar 13, 2010

I have a macbook that is not wireless n enabled. i know i could take apart the macbook and install a new airport card that is and that would work (and probably will one day soon) for the time being would a usb adapter work the same?

Also airport seems to drop its connection pretty frequently and doesn't like to work more than a few feet away from the docking station. I'm hoping it's because the airport card is old. Would an adapter fix this as well?

OS X :: Need A USB Wireless Adapter For Macbook?

Jan 21, 2008

Are there any that a store like best Buy sells that are compatible with a Mac / Macbook? I need to pick up a signal in another room, and the only way would be to run a long USB cord attached to a wireless adapter...but it seems like none of the bigger brands sell Mac-compatible versions. If anyone knows of a compatible adapter, please post about it!

MacBook Pro :: Finding The Magnetic USB Adapter?

Aug 5, 2009

I've seen a video (although in German) of a magnetic USB adapter.

In the video, the girl plugs in a male USB piece into the car's radio and fits a female USB piece on the end of a USB Drive. They magnetically attached and the radio played music.

The magnetic pieces really reminded me of the MagSafe adapter.

Does anyone know where to find the magnetic USB adapter?

I want to use it to simplify docking my MacBook Pro so I only plug in the MagSafe and USB. I'll have input devices, USB sound card, external hard drive and my iPod plugged into the USB hub hidden under the desk.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Mains Adapter For 13"

Oct 9, 2009

I still have a spare 85w Mains adapter and I'd like to be able to use it - my understanding (correct me if I am wrong) is that the MBP will pull the wattage from the mains so a larger one will do no damage. The Apple guy says he wouldn't recommend it (and hence tried to sell me a new 65w one).

OS X :: Where To Find IP Address For USB Wireless Adapter

Feb 21, 2009

When both computers Beige G4 (os 9,2,2) and an eMac (os x Tiger) are connected to the internet with wire cables, there's no problem. I can hook up to the eMac from my Beige G4 (os 9.2.2)using Chooser/Appletalk/and inputing the IP address of the eMac (from Network preferences); which lets me connect.

When I'm hooked up to Internet- wireless with Afterthemac n300 usb internet adapter on eMac, my problem is that I need to have an IP Address of the wireless computer (eMac 750mhz) so that I can connect to it with a G4 Beige Mac os 9.2.2) which I can't find. I get the following in the Network preferences: Configure IPv4: Using DHCP (drop menu); IP Address; Subnet Mask; Router The optional boxes for DNS Servers and Search Domains are empty.

These numbers were suggested by the Internet provider, which I entered in anticipation and before I received the n300. The router which I rent from the service provider is a SIEMENS GIGASET567. So- is there a way that I can change the numbers from above so that I can connect both computers. I tried the IP but eventually a message comes back telling me it can't find the server. Another reason might be if I would want to hook up to the eMac from another office to get information on that particular computer.

PowerPC :: How To Use Linksys Wireless Adapter In Powerbook

Aug 10, 2008

Anyway, I have a Powerbook G4 that's about five years old. It doesn't have an internal wireless card so I bought a Linksys wireless adapter to plug into the side of my computer when I first got the computer. It worked fine for years. I recently reformatted my hard drive and now when I insert the wireless adapter it no longer will allow me to connect to the internet. I'm aware that Linksys doesn't have drivers for Mac users so I'm kinda confused how I got it to work in the first place. I don't remember installing any third party software, but I may have-- it was a few years ago. what I should do to allow me to use my linksys card in my Mac? I've heard of Orangeware but I'm not sure if that's the solution.

Oh one more thing, when I plug the card in, an icon appears in the top right corner that shows something is plugged into the port but doesn't allow me to click on it and search for wireless connections.

OS X :: Cannot Access Wireless Network Using Ethernet Adapter

Aug 15, 2009

I am trying to get onto our home wireless network using a G4 a friend has just given me. It doesn't have an airport facility so my friend has also given me a 802.11g wireless ethernet adapter. I have followed the instructions exactly (accessing the adapters internal configuration and setting it to the wireless networks SSID and channel, then going back into the network settings and re-setting it to "obtain IP address using DHCP') When i restart the computer the network status reads as "built in ethernet is active and has a self-assigned ip address. you may not be able to connect to the internet" (the marker next to it is yellow)
needless to say I cannot connect to the internet.

Hardware :: Finding AC Adapter For A 23" ACD?

I think my 23" ACD's AC adaptor is broken as it does not power the ACD. There are a few replacement AC adaptors on the market. Can you tell me which one I need to buy?

I was not able to power the 23" ACD with the one for a 20" ACD (45W). So, the replacement I need should be at least a 65W unit.

Hardware :: Built-in Wireless Card And Had To Switch To A USB Adapter?

Aug 13, 2008

For reasons I would rather not get into, let's say that I had to stop using my built-in wireless card and had to switch to a USB adapter. Let's also say that the driver for the Asus & Hawking adapters (both re-packaged versions of the same crap) are buggy as hell and cause system panics when large memory consumers + crappy network driver are both in use (iTunes or RSync over the wireless).
