OS X Leopard :: Yellow Lights For Network Diagnostics For Internet And Server


Network consists of a G5, a hub, an Airport Extreme, an Airport Express and one MacBook.The MacBook, tonight, lost Internet.I tried over Airport (full strength to the network, no Internet).I tried plugging it in to an Ethernet cable (still no internet). The G5 has maintained internet.I restarted the MacBook. No Internet. I ran Network Diagnostics, and all but the last two lights are green. The last two (Internet, Server) are yellow. Not red, not green, but YELLOW.

What does yellow mean, and how do I get them green?BTW, the MacBook can get internet off of SOMEONE ELSE'S wireless router (a neighbor), but not our own. I didn't change anything....

Intel Mac :: Cannot Connect To Internet - Server Lights Yellow
All of a sudden I cannot connect to the internet. I use both Safari and Firefox and have not been having any problems. My machine tells me that it is connected to the ethernet and I have an IP address and everything else, but it just won't connect. I run diagnostics and the internet and server lights are yellow, not green. There are no proxy servers and I changed the firewall settings to allow all connections. Still doesn't work. My provider tole me to exchange the modem today and see if that works. They say they can see my computer but they can't communicate with it. Is there some hidden firewall somewhere in the OS.

OS X Tiger :: Internet Connect, Network, And Network Diagnostics All Crash?
Whenever I get disconnected from wifi only on my primary account, I try to open internet connect to reconnect, but it unexpectedly quits. It the recent weeks, my mail application has been deleted and so has my automator application (not sure if related). The information (clock, bluetooth, user, etc) on the menu bar stopped showing up ( i had to delete systemuiserver.plist to get back on). I have ran clamx and it isn't showing any viruses.

IMac Intel :: Internet Connection Only Works After Going Through Network Diagnostics?
I recently had to disconnect the ethernet cable on my iMac and have it go wirelessly. Since then internet only works after I go thru the Network Diagnostics a few time and restarts. I tried performing the steps in the following discussion but it only works after the first restart. Day later same problem again.

OS X :: Network Diagnostics Asks For Password To Connect?
I am trying to connect my Mac Pro to a wireless network which has no security settings. Other Macs in the house connect to the network with no problem, but the Mac Pro doesn't. I am setting up a new network as I have moved house. In the previous house the wireless worked fine on the Mac Pro.

When I click on the Airport Icon in the menu bar, the search wheel shows and it finds the network, but when I click on the name of the network typically it doesn't connect. Occasionally it does connect, and I briefly have internet access, but then the number of bars on the Airport Icon gradually reduce and then I can't connect again.

When I run Network Diagnostics from Safari, it finds the network also, but then typically asks for a WEP password for the Wireless Network when I haven't added any security to the network (occasionally it doesn't ask for a password and I can connect briefly)

I have tried resetting my Time Capsule and creating a new wireless network with a different name, but still experience the same issues.

I wonder if someone has any ideas as to what might be going on, and how I might be able to troubleshoot this.

MacBook Pro :: Dropping WiFi And Continually Ask To Run Network Diagnostics
I unboxed my new MBP (15" 2.53GHZ) yesterday and ran all the Software Updates. Within two hours, my WiFi connection dropped, and I was asked to run Network Diagnostics. This has happened several times since then, and I keep getting prompted to rerun the Network Diagnostics. I keep getting dropped now every couple of hours, and need to reinput my WiFi password again.

I'm getting sick over this now, because my 4 year old iMac has never had problems connecting to the WiFi or dropped connections! We have a Dell laptop, Windows XP PC, WiFi, and PS3 that are connected without problems. I also deleted and reinput the Wifi keychain in the Keychain Access Utility. My airport settings is "remember networks this computer has joined".

Mac Mini :: Network Connection Fails (Internet And Server)
I have a Mac Mini running OS 10.6.8.   

Suddenly the networking functionality has stopped working and the diagnostics fails to fix it.  It shows all green lights apart from Internet and Server which both show as FAILED. 

My router is operational and does assign the Mac Mini the correct IP address (confirmed by the Mac Mini and the Router).  All other devices on the network work and can access the internet as usual.   

I have tried everything that I can think of but just can't get it working again.  

The same symptoms occur for both the wired ethernet and the wireless connection with the build-in airport.

Mac Mini :: System 'Failure' In Network Diagnostics - "operation Timed Out"
Up until this past Tuesday, I was able to print from Mac Mini with my HP Laserjet 1200 printer connected to my Airport.Now I receive the following message: Now my printer keeps pausing itself every time I try to print a document.  If I unpause it it prints a page saying "operation timed out" Then when I click on HP Officejet -> Printer ->Network Diagnostic I see that everything is green lit with the exception of "Server" which is saying failed and I get this message: Network Diagnostic was able to connect to the Internet, but not to the server "HP Officejet J5700 series.pdl-datastream.tcp.local.". This could be caused by problems with the server, or an Internet problem between computer and server. I've done the unplugging Aiport and Printer, deleting and reinstalling System Preferences.

Hardware :: Using Time Capsule / Flashing Yellow Light Missing From Network
So I have an Airport Extreme hosting my wireless network in my home office (second floor). A couple months ago I bought a Time Capsule (1TB) and have it extending my network from our family room (main floor).

I was just watching TV and saw the status light change from green to flashing yellow/orange. Thinking our internet just went down, I cracked open my MBP and fired up FireFox.... Internet is working just fine. Switched over to the Airport Utility and scanned for Devices. The only device found is my Airport Extreme.

I scanned my local area wireless networks, and all that can be found is the usual suspects... no new apple devices.Did a search on this forum and the apple support forum without finding anything super helpful.I know I could plug in via Ethernet and see if I could find it then...(its installed right under our TV and people are watching it right now)...

My next course of action is to reset the TC... When i set it back up, if I don't give it the exact same name... will i still be able to resume my back-ups from where they were before? (I know I shoulda backed up the config file... but I didn't)?

Advice?

(I highly doubt that it is a software update ... I keep ontop of those, and one hasn't been released for a while... My Extreme is at 7.3.2)

Update:
So after an hour researching all of this I came back downstairs and the TC status light is green... But its still not showing up in the AirPort Utility and I can't back up.

Update 2:
So I power cycled it and its fixed... hope this never happens again.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Unified Way Of Backing Up 15 Mac's On Network With Leopard Server
I work in an office where we have 15 macs running leopard clients, 2 pc's running XP and a server running leopard server. At present we are using external hard drives attached locally with Time Machine to backup.

We may be moving office and I have been asked by the directors to look at the best way of implementing a new network in a new building. I would love to move to a more unified way of everyone backing up (still using TM) rather than relying on people to ensure their backup drives are turned on etc etc.

What is the best way of achieving this?

Can we purchase a large backup hard drive i.e. 5-6tb and set each machine up to backup across the ethernet network to this drive

Hardware :: Express Past The Reach Of The Home Network It Just Freezes In The Yellow Blinking
I got an Airport express and for the first couple of months i've been fin and learning how to use it.

I set it up so i have 2 profile settings....

one of them is my home setting that takes the express and connects it to my currently working network and extends it wirelessly.

the second setting takes it and disables internet and sets up a wireless network to connect and pay air tunes.

Now every time i take the express past the reach of the home network it just freezes in the yellow blinking sate and wont let me find it with the airport utility.

Now i have the second profile set up for it to work, but the problem is that it wont let me connect to it to change it, so it just keeps blinking forever... untill i bring it back into the range of my home network.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: No Network After Minutes Of Server Online
We have a real catastrofic problem with our xServe. It only have a few services activated: AFP and FTP. And there is FinalCut Server installed also. We have a lot of media attached and there is only FTP and AFP requirements. Until two weeks ago the network works fantastic with no interruptions. At this time my client wants to activate the Address Book Server. And here the problems begins (maybe is a casual situation... I don't think so!) After I was activating the AddressBook service from ServerAdmin the access to the network for xServe goes down and up intermittenly. There is any reason? There is a problem with DNS??

I have an ISP Cable operator. I have a Cable-Modem attached to a Linksys Router with DD-WRT firmware. Other Macs attached to the same LAN have internet with no problems. Only xServe don't have network, the rest of Macs and PCs connected to the same router have no troubles with network. How can I stabilize the connection to my xServe again?? With no reinstallation please. I don't need many other services availables on MacOS X Server (at the moment)! I only need the solution for wake up the network connection and guarantee access clients outside, around the world bassicaly with FTP amb AFP protocols.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: SL Server As Standalone For Windows (XP 7) Network
We have been using an OS X 10.3.9 Server XServe G5 as a mainly Windows ( all XP clients) PDC file server for 6-7 years. What a great machine and super reliable. But of course it is getting long in the tooth and so I am looking at the Mac Mini SL Server bundle. Now along comes Windows 7 which won't authenticate against an old style PDC. I am quite confused about whether a standalone SL server can act as a whatever is the equivalent to a PDC in the Windows 7 world. We simply want all our Windows XP and 7 client machines to authenticate against the SL server for consistent file sharing access.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Network Account Server - Slow Login Sometimes
I'm using open directory and network accounts in my office. There are about 6 clients. Whenever I set up a client to go to the server for network accounts it works great for a period of time. But it seems like eventually they become incredible slow, like 5 minutes to log in. If I go on the client to delete then reinstate the network account server here:
SystemPrefs -> Accounts -> Login Options -> Network Account Server
Then the computer becomes fast again. But only for a few weeks. Is there something I can do keep the network logins working well without having to reset the network account server from time to time?

OS X Leopard :: Connected To Network But Cannot Browse Internet
I have a new iMac. I can connect to my wireless network via Airport. I can print to my wireless printer but I cannot connect to the internet using a browser (Safari or Firefox). I can ping (e.g., Google)successfully but can't connect via a browser. I can connect to a neighbor's unsecured network and browse the internet at will. I have WPA security activated. I have 3 PC's on my home wireless network that connect to the internet with no problem.

I've been on the phone with both Apple and Belkin support all weekend. Apparently the router is working. Apple support has not been able to diagnose my problem. The latest suggestion by Apple technical support is to install Snow Leopard and see what happens. I'm new to the iMac world. Always been a PC guy so I'm having difficulty understanding why I can connect to my network but can't browse.

Snow Leopard :: Internet Sharing - Cannot See Network
I currently have a 21.5" iMac and I want to share the internet through it's airport card. I plug the dsl cable into the ethernet port and turned on "internet sharing" in the "sharing" tab in the system preferences. I have "Share your connection from: Ethernet" and "To computers using: Airport" all checked and selected and have turned on Internet Sharing. I clicked on the Airport Options and created a network. However, no other computers in the near vicinity can see this network. Nor can I manually connect to it. Do I need to do something in order to make the network "available?" How come no other computers can see it?

OS X Leopard :: Can't Access Network Or Internet On G5
I have a G5 tower running 10.5.8 that up until a few weeks ago had no problems getting on the internet. It's hard wired directly to my Airport Extreme via Ethernet. After turning it off for a week while on a biz trip, when I returned, it no longer gets any kind of network or internet access. I've tried everything: switching to the built-in airport card for wireless; restarting my cable modem and my Airport; manually setting IP address in network settings; going through the network diagnostics from Safari. Nothing is working.

The only thing I can think of is that I VAGUELY remember getting one of those Keychain access challenge questions shortly after restarting the computer, and I think I may have disallowed something that shut everything off.

I have three other computers wirelessly connected to the Airport that all work fine (thus am I able to post this topic).

OS X :: Leopard Internet Sharing Network But No Connection
I recently did a clean install of leopard and then migrated my account back on to my MBP non-santa rosa 2.33. Now, when I attempt to internet share from my ethernet to computers using airport, they are able to see the network, connect to it, and put in the password, but internet fails to connect. I'm on a college network, but this shouldn't really matter since I currently have a network of this type working perfectly on an iMac running Tiger. The signal reads at full strength and behaves just like it should, just it doesn't allow an internet connection. No firewall is on.

Snow Leopard :: Connect An IMac To Internet But Not To Network?
I volunteered to purchase an iMac for our company. This huge company maintains a huge windows-only network environment and IT does not support any macs (nor do they want to have them on the network).
Hence, since we really need this machine to be a mac and not a PC I had to promise to set it up as a stand-alone machine and to get anti-virus protection (as users will be coming in with their jump drives etc). At least for the latter reason (regular updates of virus definitions must be possible) we'd like to have it connected to the Internet.

How would I escape the dilemma that as soon as I'd hook it up via Ethernet, it would of course get Internet but at the same time would see all other machines on the network? (it will sure do so as I had tried it out with some other machine running on the same OS)
Is there a way to configure Snow Leopard to allow for Internet but not network access?

Does it make sense at all (for security reasons that is)?
