OS X :: IP Address Conflict In AirPort Settings

Oct 9, 2010

I have a wireless router with 2 devices connected via ethernet (PC and XBOX 360) and 3 devices connected wirelessley (Imac, macbook, iphone and printer). This morning I was using my imac and all of a sudden I got a message saying another device is using my IP address.

I tried restarting the router, the computer airport but nothing worked. The only other device on at this point was the macbook which received the same message. I assigned a manual address to the imac via the advanced settings in airport but how do I fix this so that IP addresses are assigned automatically?

MacBook Pro :: Persistent IP Address Conflict On Airport?

Feb 21, 2012

I have about 60 users on my network with a router assigning DCHP leases to all machines.There is an airport extreme in bridge mode which is expanded with another airport extreme that are connecting the router to about 35 machines. There is a 50/50 mix of mac and pc.ONLY the macs are having a IP conflict issue.

Problem:IP Conflict errors only on the wireless connection throught Airport on Macbooks.I did have 1 iMac have this problem, but they are fine for the most part.It seems the MAC just will not let go of its previously issued address and is persistently re-asking the router for the address, kicking back the error.I try to have it clear the previous DCHP with no luck.

I have tried:

-Renew the DCHP lease

-Reboot Machine

-Repair Disk Permissions

-Update Software (Happens on both OSX10.6 & OSX10.7)

-Remove/Recreate Wireless Network Profile 

If I just assign a manual address, it works.  I don;t want to do this to everything on the network and I would love for the DCHP to work as it should on the MBPs like it does on everything else. Rebooting the router is not an option since I have an entire office on it. And.. it is probably not a router problem since the problem is concentrated on one type of machine.

OS X :: IP Address Conflict With Two Laptops On Same Network

Jul 27, 2007

I have two laptops on the same network. When one of them is on, the other cannot get on because of this IP conflict, and vice versa. How do I change one of the IP addresses so I can get both laptops on the network at the same time? I'm looking to transfer music between two laptops and because they both can't connect to the network at the same time (Mac and PC), I can't transfer the files.

OS X :: IMac Network - IP Conflict Errors

Sep 24, 2009

Girlfriend just got a new iMac all in one a week or so ago. We had no problem setting this up on the exsisiting network but a couple days ago we began having issues. The 3 PCs, 2 iPods and one network printer seem to connect fine until the iMac connects (or tries to). We've gotten IP confilct errors on various machines (assigning already assigned IP address). I cannot even connect to the router when the iMac causes this problem. Take the Mac off, everything runs fine. I am new to the Mac world so maybe I'm missing something. Here's what my network consists of... Scientific Atlantic DPC2203C cable modem (Optimum) Netgear WGT624 v3 router 1 iMac all in one, 2 HP and one Gateway PC(all Vista), 2 iPod touch, 1 HP wireless printer all running DHCP and wireless.

OS X :: Conflict Between Windows And Mac On The Same Dlink Router?

Nov 14, 2009

My son recently moved to Taiwan and is staying with friends. The apartment has a d-link router. My son has a MacBook Pro, his room-mate has a Windows computer, both connect to the d-link router using Ethernet.A conflict has erupted. I hope you can offer some advice and prevent bloodshed.My son gets up, turns on the router and connects to the internet. A while later, the room-mate gets up and can't connect. The room-mate insists that the Mac is causing him to not be able to connect. Tempers flare etc. and it's seems impossible to do any meaningful troubleshooting.The room-mate insists that the problem only started with my son's arrival. Also, the room-mate is concerned that viruses are getting into his computer because of the Mac being connected.

Hardware :: Telus Firewall Settings For AirPort Express?

Jul 5, 2009

I want to use AirPort Express to send iTunes to my stereo. I get my internet connection from a wireless modem (Telus is my ISP). I can establish a new network between my MacBook and my AirPort Express which will work (iTunes comes out of my stereo), but then I cannot access my wireless network and get the internet (my Mac will only allow one network connection at a time); and I can connect an ethernet cable from my the WAN port on my wireless modem to my AirPort Express, which will also work. But I cannot get my AirPort Express to join my existing wireless network. Telus tells me this won't work because they won't allow another network to join their network. I'm guessing this would be a Telus Firewall issue, but when I look at the Firewall settings Telus provides,

Hardware :: Airport Express - How To Reset To Factory Settings

Jul 24, 2009

I recently moved to a new place. At my old apartment I had my express plugged in, never constantly unplugged it or anything and it worked fine.

I move into my new place and now my express wont work. I did a factory reset, holding the reset while plugging it in, reconfigured it to extend my network as I use it to connect to xbox live.

Everything will work for about 2-3 minutes and have internet until the light goes solid yellow. It wont show up in the airport utility or anything. I look at it and it is shutoff while plugged in. No blinking light, no solid light just nothing.

I cant find any information on any other resets and I assumed factory was way to go after it wasnt working the first time.

I have NO idea what to do now. I assume its dead completely unless there is something im doing wrong.

I have had it for a little over a year. Not exactly sure when i bought it. I think I am within a month of the warranty expiring. This sucks. I dont have my proof of purchase or anything. But I am positive I bought it around this time.t does the normal start-up by blinking green then solid yellow while starting then it resets, "starts up" one more time then shuts off completely.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Port Conflict - How To Solve It

Mar 9, 2010

it seems that both Time Capsule and Leopard Server both use port 548 for file sharing. So if I have both the server and Time Capsule with File Sharing turned on, any attempt to login will go to the Time Capsule and not to the server.

If I turn File Sharing OFF in Time Capsule, I can than map port 548 to the IP of the server machine and users can properly login into the server again.

OS X :: AirPort With Self Assigned IP Address?

Nov 21, 2009

Well the problem started when we got a new Time Capsule (2 TB) and replaced and AEBS. At the moment we have 4 macs using the TC. Three wireless and one connected with ethernet cable. If I close the lid on my Macbook Air and open it after a few minutes, it wont connect to the internet. I get a message saying: "Airport has the self-assigned IP address (and the IP #) and will not be able to connect to the internet" I try to use the network diagnostics, and it looks like the network settings is wrong (amber light) and the internet and server is failed.

I then select the network I want to use, and then it suddenly works again. Also three of the macs are using the TC for back ups. Usually the back up gets delayed, and wont start even if I ask it to back up now. It starts to the volume ready, then it says that the disk isn't available. Is there something I cant do or is the TC faulty? My mum and dad arent too good with macs, so if they cant connect to the internet they usually just reboot and it works. I have reset the TC and created the network again, but its still the same issue.

Hardware :: Using Airport Extreme With DSL Modem - PPOE Settings

Feb 18, 2009

OK, so after several hours of swearing and cursing, i have my new airport extreme sitting behind my dsl modem now working and connected to the internet.

With my older linksys router, I had the dsl modem set to 'bridge' PPP location mode. That didn't work with the airport extreme it seems and nor did having the PPP on the modem. So, i selected 'PPP on the computer' PPP location mode and that seemed to do the trick.

So, question is -

- why doesn't 'bridge' mode work with the apple extreme? does it, and i'm not doing it right?

- is 'ppp on the computer' ok and any reason to not want this - any degradation in network performance etc?

PowerPC :: How To Access The Airport Card Settings To Get Wireless Connectivity

Mar 4, 2009

I just installed the Airport extreme wireless card on my emac, but I have run into some problems:

1)after installing the card, the mac took a very long time to start up, I tested to make sure it was the card: everytime I started it up without the card, it did the normal thing, but with the card, it took a long time

2)after finally starting up, nowhere can i find where/how to configure the wireless. When I go to configure the network, it has all options, but the airport card option is not usable.

Hardware :: Access Airport Extreme Router Settings Over Internet

Jan 19, 2010

I've owned a Netgear and a D-Link route before and with those, you could access all your router settings and statuses over the internet. The Login would usuallly be the ip address and the password would be one of your choice. I can't seem to find any settings to enable this on my Airport Extreme.

Hardware :: DNS Settings In Multiple AirPort Environment (WDS)

May 11, 2010

I have a primary time capsule, and then I have it extended via another airport extreme. I've noticed that websites are slow to load, but I'm able to sustain pretty fast download speeds. I'm guessing this might be a DNS issue. I've tried google public DNS and I still can't seem to get this thing to fly. A related issue is more of a question. Do I need to change DNS settings on the airport that merely extends the first time capsule? It defaults to 10.0.0.1, the IP address of the router and I'm thinking that's probably what's best as it does the DNS resolution there.

OS X :: Mac OS X 10.5.5 To Address AirPort Glitch

Sep 2, 2008

Development of Apple's upcoming Mac OS X 10.5.5 Update appears to be winding down, with only a couple of new fixes making their way into recent builds, including one aimed at wireless issues.

This past week saw two new pre-release distributions of the 320MB Leopard update fall into developers' hands. The first arrived mid week as Mac OS X 10.5.5 build 9F25, but contained no noticeable changes from the build the preceded it.

More recently, developers were treated to build 9F29. That build tacked on a pair of fixes, one of which tackles an issue between Macs and previously joined AirPort networks, people familiar with the software say. The second fix was related to a graphics framework.

Seemingly at the tail end of its development cycle, Mac OS X 10.5.5 is reportedly hindered by a single known bug that prevents emails from being searched properly in Apple's Mail application.

The fifth maintenance and security update for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard now stands to deliver 125 bug fixes when it's released later this month.[ View this article at AppleInsider.com ]

Hardware :: Getting No IP Address To My Airport Extreme

Mar 27, 2009

About a week ago my internet connection would drop out for hours. After setting messing around with my router and modem and reseting everything it would work for a few hours then stop again. My connection is provided by Charter Cable, through a Linksys BEFCMU10 V4.0 modem, to a Linksys WRT55AG V2.0 router. If I removed the router and wired directly into the G5 from the modem, the internet connection would start working perfectly. If I went back, reset the router and hooked it up again, I would lose connection and it would actually take the modem completely offline, requiring the modem to be reset to get reconnected. So I decided I would spring for an Airport Extreme Base Station, figuring the router was bad.

Well I get home with the new AEBS hook it up, and does the same thing. Apples menus and troubleshooting guides. (The main reason I decided to get the AEBS) Well after going through the setup, it says it is not receiving an IP address.

OS X :: Changing IP Address In Airport On My Laptop?

Aug 15, 2009

I have a MacBookPro running OSX 10.5.8 and I've been connecting wirelessly with my NETGEAR Wireless N Router (WNR2000) for the past week but then all of a sudden I'm not able to connect to the internet anymore. I keep getting this message "you have a self assigned IP Address but may not be able to connect to the internet."

I've done all the basic troubleshooting with resetting the Router to factory setting and also unplugged and restarted my modem and Router and laptop.

I've called my ISP (Time Warner Cable) and they've gone through the same troubleshooting with me. I know my internet works as I've been using Ethernet and it works. The person over at Time Warner and she said that my internet and even Netgear wireless router is giving the right IP address but when i checked my network settings on my computer, the IPv4 address is this: 169.254.52.45.

I've checked on various sites and i found that IP that starts with 169.254.xxx is the default setting for airports. I don't know how to set the right IP on my airport on my laptop? It's annoying because I've tried setting my airport on my laptop USING DHCP with manual address with the correct IP from my ethernet connection but doesn't seem to work. I'm at the end of the ropes before smashing my router and computer to a million pieces.

So I'd like to know if port forwarding settings are saved on the Airport Extreme or the Mac connected to it. If it's saved on the Mac, then I would just wait till I get my replacement to set up port forwarding.

PowerPC :: IBook Airport Connects But Has No IP Address?

Jan 9, 2008

iBook G4 shows that the airport has full connectivity (full bars) yet it doesn't connect and states that there is no IP address. The iBook connects using its internal airport to a Netgear Router. There is a PC that runs windows that is connected to the cable modem. For a month or so both computers were able to access the internet simultaneously. All of a sudden the computers are unable to access the internet at the same time. When I attempt to connect at the same time my Mac gives me an error stating that another IP is in use and so I can't connect.

How can I give my iBook an IP address so that both computers can be online at the same time?

MacBook Pro :: No IP Address On AirPort Apparently?

Mar 28, 2012

Okay. So my Airport has decided that I apparently have no IP address. I know this is somehow my fault, and I've tried resetting it via terminal, but each time I fix it, I have internet connection for about 5 minutes and then it cuts out again. I've looked under my network settings and there's absolutely no IP address. Nothing. I set up one of the Google servers (8.8.8.8), but that is only getting me so far. I just don't know what to do next. I'm running Lion, because I know that will make a difference in how everything is set up.I have also tried to release a new one via DHCP, but that doesn't do anything when I try it.

Intel Mac :: Downloaded Lion Now AirPort Router Drops Modem Settings

I have to repeatedly go back into System Preferences, Network, Assist Me, Network Diagnostics, choose the network port config, select WiFi, select my network and it restores all network settings and says "Internet connection appears to working correctly." This problem apparently happens whenever the computer goes to standby/sleep.

i have checked 'allow this network to be extended' on the TC, and connection sharing is in bridge mode.

OS X :: Airport Connection Has Ip Address But Still Won't Connect?

Oct 3, 2010

Recently moved and had a net connection installed yesterday, the guy set it up and it connected fine up until last night when i decided to mess around with OSC control and had to set up my own local network to do it.

Now today I'm trying to connect to the net again back on the default 'automatic' location (i made a seperate location for the OSC to try and avoid this sort of trouble) - and although Airport is picking up the router and is saying it HAS got an IP address, the internet is still not connecting.

I've done a few common sense diagnostic checks, its not Firefox becuase I'm running Little Snitch and thats not showing any movement either..I checked that its automatically configuring using DCHP and supposedly wiped the network settings by deleting the .plist files but its still doing the same thing: reporting that it's connected and has an IP address, but still with no connectivity.

Diagnostics says it 'appears to be connected' but the Network Setup Assistant gets to the last stage of the setup and asks me to check my diagnostics because it can't connect. When seconds later it has an IP and is 'connected'.

I'm trying to keep track of wireless clients joining my network. The AirPort Utility "Logs and Statistics" button (under Advanced) allows me to see what DHCP leases are out and a list of wireless clients. But it's very annoying reading a long string of Hex to know which device it is!

Is there some way to assign a name or label to each MAC address within the Airport Utility? And Yes, I could use pen & paper, but what's the fun in that?

Hardware :: Airport Express Unable To Connect To Network - Should I Change Router's Settings

Sep 1, 2008

i recently bought an Airport Express, and i finally took it out of its box after i purchased my new stereo. I connected the audio cable to the stereo and the airport unit and plugged it into an outlet. I opened up airport utility on my mac, AX appeared and i configured it to "join a wireless network". After completing the remaining steps, i updated it.. and waited for it to restart. Now here's my problem. It comes up with an error telling me it couldn't find the device after restarting. I have Verizon FiOS as my provider.. and I know that airport express has a history of trouble with the Actiontec router. Is there anything i can do with my current equipment to get this thing to work? I do not need to extend the network.. only join to use airtunes and print wirelessly... Also, my Actiontec router and FiOS connection are through my crappy dell pc downstairs, while i am using my 24" iMac upstairs in my bedroom trying to connect this. Should i change my router's settings?

My Airport Extreme isn't recognizing the IP address from my cable modem. When the modem is connected directly to my MBP the internet works fine. When connected to the router I don't get any internet. I have powered off the modem and router and all devices, brought up the modem first (waited for all lights to come on), powered up the router, then the devices. Still nothing. I've tried deleting the DNS server information and resetting - nothing seems to work. There is a green light on the ethernet port on the Time Capsule so I believe the port is fine.

Hardware :: Airport Extreme Failed Security Test - Can I Change Any Settings To Make Network More Secure

Aug 27, 2010

I just purchased an Airport Extreme (802.11n) to replace my old Linksys router (so that I can have wifi). After I have everything installed, I went to Symantec's Security Check page and ShieldsUP! page to make sure my connection is secure.

[URL]

To my horror, Symantec says that one of my ports is OPEN (ICMP Ping), while all others are CLOSED. In my limited understanding, this is definitely not the most desirable situation--not as good as my old Linksys, whose ports are all reported as STEALTH. ShieldsUP! just said that I failed because of the open ICMP port.

My questions are:

1. Is this the best Airport Extreme can do?
2. Am I safe?
3. Can I change any settings to make my network more secure?

I can't find much info from Apples' documentation and the Support website.
