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.

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.

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing Doesn't Work On Wireless Network?

May 1, 2010

Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_1_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7D11 Safari/528.16)

I tried to set up a home share between mine and my girlfriend's MacBooks. It worked okay both ways, but then I disconnected my ethernet cable and the connection dropped.

I started fiddling around and discovered that home sharing only works as long as any one of the two computers is connected to the router with a cable. The other one can be connected wirelessly. But it won't work if both are wireless at the same time.

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.

MacBook :: Wireless Doesn't Always Work?

Mar 22, 2009

I am pretty displeased with Mac. I made the switch over last summer when Apple was having the big sale for college students. I bought a Macbook with 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. It wasn't the cheapest white one, but it wasn't the expensive black one either. Reason one why I was displeased: the CD drive sounded like a motor boat when I tried burning CDs. After having that fixed, yet another problem arose that persists to this day: For some reason, my wireless doesn't work here at home. It works (almost) perfectly at school, but here at home, I have to be about 3 inches away from the freaking router for it to function properly. When I'm no more than 10 feet away, the signal begins to drop. Even when I have 3 bars of connection showing, my internet won't work at all. Coincidentally, when i click on the wireless button up at the top of the screen, it begins to function again (most of the time). It is really annoying. This is probably the last Mac I will ever buy. At home, I have a Linksys wireless router, Model WRT54GR.

MacBook Pro :: Wireless Options With MBP - Internet Cannot Work?

Dec 15, 2009

My wireless in my computer sucks! it fades in and out bad while my girls old PC works great sitting right next to me. I am about 30ft way from my router and up a level but it used to work fine, not 1/2 the time it wont even pick up a signal and I have to walk out of my room to get it. After I do that my wireless works just fine, like it is now. But there is no reason why another computer works great right next to mine and mine wont hardly connect to the internet. Some times my wireless says it is connected(the bars on the menu), but my internet wont work still. Like I said if i move closer everything seems to work fine.Do you all think it is the wireless card or something else. I dont want to take my computer some were and get reemed by their prices because I can do the physical part of the wireless card instal myself. Is there any other parts to it if that is the problem?

OS X :: Macbook Wireless Doesn't Work When External Display Is Plugged In?

Nov 11, 2008

I have a white plastic macbook which appears not to be able to connect to my wireless network. All the other PCs and a Mac Mini in the house connect fine, but the macbook does not.It has connected since i got it, both to the home network and a network in school, but today it promted me for the wireless password, connected a few times but did not give me a IP address, and now will not connect at all! The network appears in the list, i click on it, enter the wireless password, then it says connecting before connection failed.

The network setup is a Cisco router connected to the modem and then connected to the wireless too. There are no computers connected via cable to the network.

OS X :: Install SL On Separate HD - Keep Old Home Folder - Doesn't Work

Sep 4, 2009

I installed Snow Leopard on a separate HD I put into the lower OD-bay of my Mac Pro. I created a new account under SL with the same name as my old one under Leopard and migrated only my apps folder using Migration Assistant. Then, in the Accounta prefpane, I did a right-click on the newly created acocunt and pointed it to the "old" home folder on the Leopard drive. The problem is: Somehow Snow Leopard has no access to the folder! Any suggestions on what I missed out on? Right now I'm upgrading my old Leopard installation to Snow Leopard in order to make my "old" home folder a "Snow Leopard compatible" one. Don't know whether this makes sense. EDIT: Or is it because my new account surely has a different user ID and if so, what would be the solution? "chown" might break something, I guess.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Macbook Says It Connected To Wifi But Internet Doesn't Work

Apr 14, 2012

1. tried deleting Airport and then re-adding then clicking apply. Worked the very first time I tried this and it has only worked twice since.

2. tried allowing all incoming connections, worked once now problem still persists.

3. Tried re-starting router, this has never worked

4. There was a post about deleting a file, the person said they were instructed by apple care to do this, that didn't work either.  

- Seems to only do this when the computer is on sleep mode

- everything else in the house connects fine to the internet

- this problem does not only happen in my house, it happens at coffee shops etc

- sometimes it is able to connect via tethering off my iphone

- this was a problem 2 years ago on this computer, then it was fine for 2 years and now it's back!

2011 Macbook Pro Connects To Internet But Safari Doesn't Work

May 8, 2012

I am haveing and issue conencting. The probelm is when an ethernet connection is working Wifi is not, when Wifi is working ethernet is not. The issue is the netowrk control panel says Im always connected through wifi and ethernet 100% of the time but Safari or Firefox will not load a web page. It is strange because in Terminal I can ping any website. I'v restarted the router, the computer, I have even reloaded the OSX Lion. I have al the most up to date definitions. From a little bit of reasearch I see this is a ongoing issue and it is very frustrating. It is not a netowrk issue all my other devices work perfect when connected to wifi. 3 windows machines ipad iphone etc. Is the network card bad on the late 2011 macbooks?

PowerPC :: Wireless Internet Slow Or Sometimes Not Even Work On G4

Apr 18, 2009

There may be an easy explanation for this, but for someone who is new to Mac's entirely, it's proving to be difficult. I recently acquired a powerbook g4 15" powerpc 1.5ghz with 1gb ram and 80gb hd. I'm a computer technician at work, go figure, but only for pc's. The wireless works flawlessly on the mac at work, t1 connection. When I arrive home, my wireless is so slow and sometimes doesn't even work.

I have comcast cable internet, which is really fast on my desktop and two pc laptops. So with my comcast, I have their issued cable modem and a linksys wireless router. Any thoughts as to why this is so slow? Takes me like, 5 minutes to load facebook. I have Mac OSX 10.5 +, not sure what exact version. I think 10.5.6? I'm not connected to anyone elses internet and my DNS are the same on my PC.

Windows On Mac :: 7 Internet Won't Work (connected Via Wireless Router)

Aug 29, 2010

I really hope someone has an answer to this because this is really annoying. Right now my Macbook is connected to the internet via my wireless router but as soon as I want to load bootcamp and switch to windows 7 I have no internet connection. I have tried to follow this [URL] website in resolving the problem but as soon as I get to STEP 2 I get this message in the window "MMC could not create the snap-in." This message is making me unable to proceed to the other steps and it appears it locked me out so I'm unable to edit anything.

Oct 28, 2009

I went ahead and disassembled my wireless mighty mouse, unscrewed the scroll ball from the lid of the mouse and found a ton of lint and cr@p that has been living in here for quite some time. cleaned it all up, put it together, now all of the little rollers spin freely, great.

I go to put everything together, including the 2 ribbon cables, mouse snaps together, fire it up, mouse works fine, i can click, side buttons work, but the scroll does not work at all now. left to right use to be fine, it was just up and down. now nothing works.

any idea what could have gone wrong? did i forget something?

OS X :: Connecting To Internet At Home On MacBook

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.
