Hardware :: Finding Best Wireless And Router/Modem?
I am after a Router Modem for use in the UK with my ADSL. I want 'N' so I can stream my videos. The Wireless G I have is ok but stalls through films and rebuffers on the AppleTV.

I have seen the Netgear WNDR3700 but the reviews say the speeds they get are only 60mbps which I dont get as its supposed to be 600mbps.

OS X Leopard :: How To Connect To Router And Modem
I have 3 Macs in the house. One mini (2009) that sits right next to the Belkin, and an iMac and Macbook on the second floor of my house (the kids use these). They've been complaining that it's harder to get signals, signals are dropping, or they are taking longer to connect into. I'm not sure what to do to figure out the problem. Is the modem not working? (That is also several years old.) Or is it the Belkin? I would simply buy the Airport Extreme if I knew that would solve the problem, but I'm not sure.

IMac Intel :: Recommendation About Good Router?
I have an old D-Link that is finally getting on my nerves more than I can tolerate (slow, dropping connection, unreliable connections), so as I use mainly intel macs and just have access to an ipod touch, I have to bite the bullet and get a new router. Airport Extreme is a little outside my budget - and while I'd get it if I have to, I am concerned from reading various posts that even an Extreme may not totally solve my problems. I "blame" the D-Link - and it is outdated for the intels, but this is a large, old house with lathe and plaster and there are always places wifi is more reliable. I did try a booster antenna on the D-Link but it is just not enough. I don't want to spend almost $200 on an Extreme only to have to get an Express to boost the signal.

MacBook :: Wireless Router - Combined Linksys Wireless Router/modem Versus The 802.11b
I have a Linksys Wireless Router and a Linksys Modem, the router is 6 years old or so 802.11b, how much faster would the Internet be if I had a combined Linksys wireless router/modem versus the 802.11b that I have now?

MacBook Pro :: Can I Use A Modem As A Router?
Hi, I want to network 2 of my old mac book pros (2006) using an old DSL Modem/Router of mine. I don't want to connect to the internet using the modem, but just use the router capabilities of it. Is this possible?

I intend to use the connection to begin a small render farm for my designs!

Hardware :: How To Configure Router/Modem
So, for the past 5 months or so, any time I'm using the internet at home, the connection speeds are atrocious. I bought a new modem (which Charter quickly dispatched as being "unsupported", despite 3 techs telling me it would work), tried hard wiring my iMac to check for wifi issues, and have basically just gone out of my mind with speeds that make dial-up look favorable.

Whenever I experience page timeouts or flat out no connectivity, I resort to the time-tested "turn Airport off/on" solution, which provides a page or two of fast connectivity before the slow downs continue. I'm beginning to think my router is on its way out, but the fact that it works sometimes makes me think it still might be the ISP.

OS X Leopard :: Airport/Airport Express Doesn't Work With 2Wire Modem/router?
I've been trying to get my 2Wire modem to work with my Airport base station and Airport Express modules and haven't been able to at all. There are some security settings on the 2Wire modem that are very complicated. I've tried all sorts of things but nothing has worked.

What I want to do is use the Airport for a music network (and possibly using it as a LAN for accessing computers and printers, although that's secondary). I can get my Airport music network going just fine when it is hooked directly into the Ethernet port on the iMac (disconnecting the 2Wire), but when I connect it to my 2Wire DSL modem/router (model 2701), it doesn't work. I've read about bridging, changing IP addresses, etc., etc., to solve the problem but I don't want to have to have such a complicated setup that I'm going to forget how to reconfigure if anything goes wrong.

So, I was wondering if getting an Ethernet hub and hooking it up to the iMac and connecting the two devices to the hub would work. Can you still buy an Ethernet hub these days? I'm a little confused as to the difference between Ethernet hubs and Ethernet switches.

I also have a MacBook. Would it be easier to connect the base station to the MacBook Ethernet port and run the AirPort network from there instead?

Power Mac G5 :: Finding Scanner Best Recommendation?
I can't figure out what stand-alone scanner to buy. I like the looks of the small LIDE Cannon scanners that are led but I read bad reviews.

MacBook Pro :: Finding HDD Enclosure Recommendation
I was recently given a 500 GB hard drive from one of my friends old servers he was getting rid of. I purchased an enclosure from OWC and discovered that the transfer rates were abnormally slow. I put a different drive in the enclosure it works fine. In addition if I put my hard drive in a different enclosure it works fine. After talking with people I was led to believe that this particular server drive might just not work well with that particular enclosure.

OS X :: Unable To Connect To Network / Modem And Router Are Not Connecting
My friend bought a new netgear router today. He plugged it in and was ready to get on the internet. The problem is, he can't get on the internet. He is able to connect to the router though. We also tried unplugging the router from the modem and plugging the ethernet straight into his Macbook Pro. From there the internet works perfectly. It is like the modem and the router are not connecting.

Hardware :: Using Time Capsule Instead Of Cable Modem/router?
I currently have a wireless network set-up through Comcast. I have a Netgear modem/router from Comcast. I just purchased Time Capsule and I would prefer to use TC as my wireless network router instead of the Netgear modem/router. Do I need to have Comcast supply a new modem without the router or is there a way to connect TC and the Netgear modem without using the built-in router?

OS X Leopard :: Finding Wireless Connect Cable Modem To Macbook Pro?
Is there a "best way" to get the internet from my cable modem across the room to my MacBook Pro? (I have my iMac plugged in via Ethernet and it works great)

More specifically: I have Cable High Speed Internet and a D-Link DIR-655. It does not work real well and is ridiculously complex to setup.

The question: Should I buy an Airport from Apple and would that be faster/easier/more reliable?

Power Mac G5 :: Finding Recommendation For Wireless Bridge (2003)
I need to connect an older G5 Power Mac purchased in 10/2003 (2GHZ-DP-X/1024MB/160GB HD/DVD-R/CDRW/R9800PRO/MDM/KYBD+MOUSE/MAC OS X), to an airport extreme wireless router. I was using an airport express (as a bridge) which died after only about a year of use. I suppose I could buy an airport card if I could find one but was thinking a bridge would be more versatile since I could use on another device when the G5 is discarded.

IMac Intel :: Can't See DSL Router/Modem Though Macbook
Desktop is a 2GZ, 20Inch, Core Duo running Tiger 10.8 and 2MB Ram

Also have a Macbook that runs just fine...

The Modem is a Yahoo BB in Japan, not sure the make/Model

Now, I moved to New house, and have a new ADSL connection. Problem is that my Imac cannot see the ADSL router/modem and I cannot connect to the Net....I do have a faint connection from a neighbours WiFi (oops) so I can get a VERY slow connection on the desktop, but really not suitable, need that cable running. (Ideally running Wifi from my desktop cable connection for my Macbook and Iphone)

I plugged in my Macbook and it was running in no time, and still does so I know the connection is fine and the modem/router is working and linked to the NET.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting MBP And G4 To Cable Modem With Netgear Router
I can't seem to get both of my machines to connect to my ISP via a Netgear 5 port router.

I have Charter cable and am using their modem. I've reset both devices, my G4 will connect but the MacBook pro will not. If I shut down the G4, the MacBook Pro has no problem connecting.

Could it be the router? Do I need to use something different? I've tried numerous restarts and device resets and I always have the same results. One or the other machine but not both.
