OS X :: Airport Randomly Disconnects - How To Repair

Jul 22, 2009

I recently purchased the $1699 Macbook Pro a couple of weeks back and now it seems that my airport randomly turns off. I can't even get it to turn back on; I have to restart my macbook to get it working again.

PowerPC :: Airport Disconnects Randomly - Reconnect Attempts Time Out

Aug 27, 2010

So, after getting it hooked up and connected to my router, which is set to only allow only 4 devices to have access to it (my comp, iphone, wii, and gf's laptop), i find that my gf's laptop (which is the only device using a corded connection) is the only machine able to get online without problems now.

I can pick up my WiFi network occasionally after a restart, but then it usually goes out after a random amount of time... anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour or 2.

OS X :: External Hdd Randomly Disconnects?

May 18, 2009

I own a few external harddrives, however one in particular (western digital 2tb) will randomly disconnect and a window will show about "device removal with the red little stop sign shape" then it will randomly connect again (and sometimes i have to physically unplug it and plug it back in), does anyone know what is going on here? None of the cables are being touched, it's really strange, the only thing i can think of, is maybe i have a loose usb cable and need to replace it? or maybe a faulty usb port?

OS X :: Frequent Wireless Disconnects - How To Repair

Mar 31, 2007

When I turn my computer on or wake it up, I am 'connected' or so it says, but I am never able to reach the internet until I (wait a long, seemingly random amount of time or) disable my wireless adapter, re-enable it, and select my wireless network.

I did not experience this problem prior to:

-Trying out a new AirPort Extreme, returning it and going back to my old G router. The AirPort worked great for this computer, but it had problems with the PCs and the xbox 360 (yes.. i know there is a workaround now...)

IMac :: External USB Drive Disconnects Randomly

Jun 12, 2010

I have had my new iMac 21.5" for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday I picked up a 500 GB LaCie USB Drive to be used for my Time Machine drive. I have the drive connected directly to a usb port on the iMac. Sometimes when the iMac goes to sleep, when I wake up the iMac I get the dreaded "This Drive Has Not Been Disconnected Properly" warning.

I have made sure that the "Put Hard Disk(s) to Sleep Whenever Possible" option is not selected under the Energy Preferences. I have tried multiple usb ports, same issue. This isn't a constant issue, it just happens sometimes. Is there anyway to tell Time Machine to mount and unmount my drive when needed?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: IMac Randomly Disconnects From Internet (WiFi Via BT Hub)

May 26, 2012

My brand new imac randomly disconnects from the internet. We have a BT hub - wifi. I have googled this issue and see that it is relatively common and it is incredibly frustrating. It is fairly simple to reconnect each time but it is driving me mad having to. It generally happens when the computer is asleep but sometimes in the middle of doing something.

MacBook Pro :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.4) External Drive Randomly Disconnects

Aug 24, 2014

I have a external SATA drive that was used on my old Windows laptop. The interface for the drive is USB 3.0. Whenever i try to view my files on the drive, the drive randomly disconnects, and notifications pop up saying that the drive was not ejected properly.

Also the drive has been reformatted to a Mac format, but it still continues to do this.

PowerPC :: Ethernet Not Working Properly - Randomly Connects / Disconnects

Oct 11, 2006

I've been having problems staying connected on my Powerbook G4. The wireless works perfectly but the ethernet does not. I've been using the dorm ethernet jack to connect. The problem is that my computer can't maintain a consistent connection through ethernet so it randomly connects and disconnects. I called my campus' IT department and they told me that it must be my computer because they're system said that it didn't detect my computers IP address. I called Applecare and the person told me that it must be something wrong with either the network card or the ethernet port. Anyway, he gives me a case number so I can go get a repair. Unfortunately an Apple Store is far away from where my school is so I went to my school's bookstore instead.

The bookstore is an authorized service place. I drop the computer off to them and they sent it to Apple. I got a call today from the bookstore guy saying that the Apple technicians discovered that "liquid" had gotten into the motherboard and refused to service my computer. I was really angry when I heard this because I keep absolute care of my laptop. I know for a fact that no water has ever been around my laptop. I'm guessing it must have been negligence on the bookstore's part. I declined the $1300+ repair estimate so now its on its way back to me. I have a brother that works at the Apple Store and he just suggested going directly to an Apple Store this time. Will they just refuse warranty repair again?

MacBook Pro :: System Randomly Disconnects Usb Device / Port Fails To Recognize IPhone

Dec 15, 2010

I have had several issues with the USB on my brand-new Core i5 macbook pro. It randomly disconnects USB devices. I've had the issue with multiple USB devices - same story with each one. Further, iTunes will only recognize my iPhone if it is in the port nearest the magsafe connector. The other port fails to recognize my iPhone entirely. Anyone else having a USB issue on their base 15" that was released today?

Furthermore, any suggestions of what to do about it? I'm having a hell of a time restoring my iPhone with this issue... And the Apple Store is over an hour away-I planned a special trip to buy this laptop.

MacBook :: Internet Sharing Through AirPort Disconnects

Sep 30, 2010

I've recently moved into student accommodation, which only has wired internet access in the rooms. This is fine for my MacBook, but causes problems for the iPad! So I've been attempting to share the MacBook's internet connection through AirPort using the "Internet Sharing" option in System Prefs->Sharing. This works great, but after a while it disconnects for no apparent reason.

OS X :: Airport Suddenly Disconnects - How To Prevent From Disconnection

May 6, 2009

I recently bought a late 08 aluminum macbook and have been quite happy with it but from quite some time I've noticed that while I'm on internet and on adium (where I noticed the most) the signal goes off for a couple of seconds and then it comes back. First i thought it was ok but it's been happening really often and is quite annoying since it happens several times a day and only happens to me and not anyone on my network (everyone else has pc`s and are also on wifi). So I wanted to ask.. is it possible my Airport card is failing? or is my router the one failing.

Applications :: Airport Extreme - WPA Connection Disconnects After Sleep?

Apr 10, 2004

I'm using WPA encryption on my Airport Extreme via a Linksys WRT54G. Everything works great, except when my Powerbook wakes up from sleeping, the connection is lost, and doesn't reconnect. To re-establish the connection, I have to select "Turn Airport Off" and then "Turn Airport On" from the Airport extra, then select my network from the menu. It doesn't seem to be a question of forgetting the key, because it doesn't ask me for the key again when I do this.

So, (a) has anyone seen this behavior and (b) is there any known fix? I saw a couple other posts in a Google search referring to this behavior, but they were older posts, and didn't have any answers.

This is on OS X 10.3.3 BTW with all the most recent updates.

OS X :: LaCie 1TB USB Drive Ejecting Randomly - How To Repair It

Dec 7, 2009

I have an external laCie Usb drive, that as the header implies, is ejecting itself randomly.

I use the first partition for general storage, the second is for TM backups.

It has never failed to finish a backup, nor has any large (5gb or larger) file transfer to the storage partition ever errored out. It appears to be completely random.

Hardware :: AirPort Randomly Drops Out

Nov 24, 2010

As the title states, I'll be searching the web doing whatever. (Most of the time I'll be uploading my work to an FTP site) and then all of a sudden I click a link and the wireless in my house goes down. I either wait it out for a few hours and it comes back to life but most of the time I need to reset my airport by un-plugging it. Is it starting to go? Its pretty old I got it in the Summer of 04 with my powerbook (its an airport express).

Hardware :: New AirPort Extreme Randomly Hangs / Not Work?

Dec 19, 2009

I got a new airport extreme and sometimes the internet will take 40 seconds to load or not work at all. Normally theres about 7 seconds before it loads. My old router does not do this. During these slow times I try my old router and it works perfectly and instantly. I read it could be software or is my router broken? It hangs or doesn't work on both mac, pc, and my xbox and ps3. Whats really weird is I think it even hangs through ethernet because my xbox takes a lot longer to load basic images?

MacBook Pro :: Randomly Loses Retina Display And Showing Pixels On Top Menu Randomly?

MacBook Pro :: Sending In For Repair Vs Local Repair?

Oct 9, 2009

My MBP recently had a bunch of problems with the logic board and speakers. I brought it into the Apple Store (on Monday) and they gave me the option of them sending it into a repair center, or them repairing it locally in store. I requested that they sent out just because I was curious to see how long it would take. To my surprise, my MBP arrived, fixed and as good as new on my doorstep today. That's amazingly fast for sending it out to a offsite repair center. The repair center is in Philadelphia. I live in Maine. You do the math. When I've had things repaired locally in the Apple Store it's taken weeks to repair instead of days because they need to order the parts.

Anyways, the point of this thread was to suggest to people that they choose the offsite repair option. It's amazingly fast, and it saved me a trip to the Apple Store (they shipped my MBP directly to my house).

OS X :: Does Apple Repair All Macs Sent In For Repair?

Apr 2, 2010

I took my late 2007 macbook in because the case was cracked. I read that this was a known issue and they would repair for free.(I had no warranty) also my battery was expanding and bloated, so much that it will no longer fit in my comp.

When I took it in, the tech said that my bottom case was cracked and he said that wasn't part of the known issue. He said it was caused by accidental damage (it was cracked clean through, so much so that it could be physically separated from the comp.(I informed him that the comp had never been dropped or damaged in anyway, he apparently didn't believe me but said he would see what he could do.

Anyway, he said he could fix the top case ( but they would not fix the bottom case)and give me a new battery although he had never seen a battery with the problem that mine had. He said it was probably expanded cells. I agreed to that as something is better than nothing but then, I asked him if the battery expanding could have caused the bottom case to crack since it was cracked near the battery compartment but on the side of the comp. After he tinkered around for a bit with the battery and the cracked part, he said he wasn't sure but he would send it in for repairs and I would not be charged.

First he said he would quote me a repair price and I told him that I had no intentions of paying for anything. After several instances of him running to the back to talk to people, he agreed to send it in. On the repair form it is listed as tier 4 accidental damage and I know that the tier 4 comes with a hefty charge for repair. Anyway, I am out of town and my comp is scheduled to be returned to me today. I dropped it off at the apple store on the 30th, it was received by the repair center on the 1st, repaired today( the second) and shipped back to me today and scheduled to be delivered today as well.

I was trying to find out if they actually repaired the bottom case or not as I will not be home to receive my comp until next week sometime. The repair form also said call if additional repairs are needed to quote a price. I have not received any calls at this number and do not know if they left any messages on my home phone. The repair turnaround seems rather quick and I was just wondering if they actually repaired it or sent in back in the same condition.

Apple support has no details of the actual repair just the time it was received, repaired and sent back to me. Also will they just leave it outside because no one is home to receive it?

OS X :: Comcast Disconnects With Mac - Not Windows

Jun 12, 2009

We have Comcast internet hooked up to a Linksys router. When only Windows machines are using the connection, everything works fine. When I use my Macbook Pro on the connection, it works for a while, then eventually the connection dies for everyone, and usually restarting the modem makes it work again. I am now trying to use the connection on Windows XP on my Macbook Pro using Boot Camp, and it seems to be working, so it seems like the modem doesn't like something about Mac OS X.

OS X :: XP - Leopard VNC Disconnects As Soon As Connect

Nov 25, 2009

I'd like to be able to VNC to my Mac at home. Here are the steps I followed (on my Mac - latest version of Leopard)

1) In the "sharing" control panel options I turned on Screen Sharing

2) In the screen sharing options I set "allow VNC access with password" (or something like that) and set my password

3) On my airport extreme I entered "manual setup" and in the port forwarding menu (I forget what it's called) I selected "remote desktop access" from the dropdown menu. That seemed to add the correct ports (5900 was one of them), and I entered my local IP address for my mac in the dialog as well.

NOW, here are my symptoms:.........................

Software :: Random Disconnects While Using The Net

Feb 7, 2009

I didn't know where to put this question, so I thought this would be the most appropriate. My computer (A macbook pro, with mac OS X, version 10.4.11) will randomly disconnect from the internet, mostly when I'm playing online games. Sometimes I can play for hours, other times only minutes before the next DC. I can restart and it will work for a few more minutes. The funny thing is it only does this when using the wired connection at my apartment, when i'm using the wireless at college it works fine. Part of my inquiry is checking if it's my computer or the ISP. None of my roommates have similar problems (though they all use PC's). One interesting thing I found when a tech from the ISP was trying to fix things is when I try to renew my IP it gives the same address after it "renews". I know I threw alot of jumbled info out there, but I'd like input from someone who knows macs.
