OS X Mountain Lion :: Internet And Server Indicators Showing Connection Loss

Jun 21, 2014

Configuration: I have the latest iMac running Mountian Lion. I connect via WiFi to a Linksys modem that is connected to my ISP's WiFI modem which connects to a tower a few miles away which, in turn, connects to the ISP's processors somewhere nearby.  

On the network diagnostics Network status  there are indicators for WiFi, WiFi settings, Network Settings, ISP, Internet and server. 

Occasionally the internet and server indicators go to yellow and then red resulting in no connection. I have reset the Linksys, the ISP WiFi modem, both and it does not seem to make any difference. Eventually the Internet and Server indicators return to green and the connection is restored. When they are yellow or red, it affects all processors in the house (iMac, Macbook Pro, iPad, iPod, etc).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 10.7.4 Causing Hangs And Loss Of Internet Connection?

May 21, 2012

Since the update I have had applications hanging and crashing. Mostly Mail, iTunes, and Safari.  What is more annoying however is when the computer is inactive for an hour or so, I lose internet connectivity and have to shut down and reboot in order to get it back. I am on a wired connection and sharing another wired connection through the second ethernet port.It seems like 10.7.4 really messed with my machine...

Mac OS X Lion Server :: No Connection To The Internet With Ethernet, Only Over Wifi?

May 28, 2012

After switching to a new provider and getting a new dsl modem (a fritz!box fon 7390) I tried to setup my homenetwork again. Now the weird thing is: my Mac Mini running OSX Lion Server doesn't seem to be able to connect to the internet over its ethernet port, only when using a WiFi connection...When it's connected with ethernet it can reach the dsl modem without any problems, but it can't ping/telnet or anything else through, only over WiFi... As long as I use the mini servers WiFi connection everything works fine, but that doesn't make any sense to me.I've checked the servers setting and the Fritz!box settings and I can't seem to find anything obvious. Of course I could just go on and use the WiFi connection...

ps: all the other computers can connect fine using either wifi or regular lan connection... I even tried the exact same cable with another laptop just to make sure...

OS X Server :: No Internet Connection Running Software Updates

Jul 12, 2006

Im running Mac OSX 10.4.2 on XServe G5. I can connect to all computers on the internal network but when I try to connect outside of this network, I get an error "no internet connection" For example, if I try to run software updates from the command line, I get the "no internet connection" error. I can ping localhost, the router, and dns server successfully...cant ping outside the internal network however. All other computers can connect without a problem. The firewall is set to allow all traffic. Also, the internal network is a number of Windows/Linux PC's, 1 powerbook, and the Xserve.

Mac Mini :: Network Connection Fails (Internet And Server)

May 7, 2012

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Force System To Use Second Connection Of Network Connection List For Internet Access?

Jul 5, 2012

I have a MacPro Early 2009, 2 ethernet ports.Ethernet 1 is connected to the LAN and Ethernet 2 is connected directly to a SSL Matrix console (an audio mixer), whom driver needs the used ethernet port to be first of the list in the Network connections list in System Preferences.So when I browse internet I can't use the Matrix's software, and vice versa.I had to create 2 different network positions to browse internet and to work with SSL Matrix, one with Eth 1 first place, another one with Eth 2 first place, and I always have to swap positions.Is there a way to force OSX to use by default the 2nd connection of the list for internet access?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Will Mountain Overwrite The Server

Jun 22, 2012

When I puchased my mac mini server I didn't need the server functions but at the time that was the OS offered, (I see recently that you can order a mac mini server with OS Lion as opposed to OS Lion Server), so I'm just running with the server functions shut off. So when Mountain Lion comes out what will be the ramifications of installing regular ML on top of lion server? Will there still be server functions I need to keep turned off? Will it remove the server functions of Lion Server?

MacBook Pro :: OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) USB External Hard Drive Not Showing Up

Aug 20, 2014

I have a Hitachi Touro USB 3.0 1TB external hard drive that has always worked on my Macbook. Formatted in FAT so it would work on both my PC and Mac. I can't remember exactly when it stopped working, but I think I had to reset my mac once as it stopped responding and the HDD was plugged in. After that it stopped showing up in Finder, but still appears in Disk Utility. It also shows up in Storage under "About This Mac".  I've tried resetting my computer, ran Apple Hardware Test, and have tested the hard drive on other computers and it works fine. Just doesn't show up in Finder on my mac!!

OS X Mountain Lion :: WiFi Via 10.8.5 - Connection Timeout Occurred

Jun 1, 2014

I've had the same internet connection for 5 years.  Same wifi.  Same password. 

My previous mbp / os had no problems connecting and *staying* connected. 

Now, with my 8-month-old MBP / OS10.8.5, I regularly get bounced off wifi and when I try to reconnect, I see my wifi in the networks list, but I get "a connection timeout occurred" fail. 

Incidentally, my iPhones (4 and 5) over five years have *never* encountered this issue.  They are on the exact same wifi / password / network as my MBP.

Mac Mini :: Ethernet Loss Of Connection?

Jun 12, 2012

I have here a mac mini 4,1 that keeps losing it's Ethernet connection. If the mac is shutdown and restarted there is no connection, however, if the mac is shutdown, all the cables pulled from the back and replaced then restarted it boots and the connection is back. It was reporting a very strange mac address starting with 00 which I've never seen before and I also had difficulty connecting to it via ARD as it would show in the scanner but not connect unless specifically connected via IP address. At first I thought it might be  a system upgrade as it happen when we upgraded to 10.6.8 since then I've wiped it and installed 10.6.3 and still no luck.

OS X :: WIfi Connection Loss During Data Transfer?

Apr 16, 2010

Yesterday I upgraded to the latest MacBook Pro (13 inch. 2.4 gig) and have a wifi connection issue. Whenever I start data transfer over wifi to my NAS, airport loses the connection after 2 minutes and obviously the transfer is discontinued. In a normal usage mode (Web browsing, mail and so forth) the thing works perfectly.

(This is my first mac, I tried to find topics related to that particular data transfer issue yet without success, sorry in case this is a well known issue).

3)after installing , is there anyway to restore my dada? unfortunately I have not any backup right now, after I turning my Mac on, it's automatically going to repair mode...

ITunes :: Home Sharing Frequent Connection Loss

Jun 9, 2010

Since iTunes 9 came out the improved Home Sharing features has been quite useful to me, but today when I re-formatted my computer I ran into some problems. Both computers are using Windows XP, one is connected via Ethernet and the other one--which I reformatted, let's call it Computer B--connects to the router wirelessly.

I have activated each computer for Home Sharing properly but from Computer B, I can't access Computer A's library. On Computer A, I can access Computer B's shared library and listen to music as normal, at least for a moment - after being connected to the library for a period of about two minutes, it will suddenly disconnect itself and the icon will disappear so I am unable to reconnect. It's strange how I can connect to the library perfectly and just out of nowhere it will disconnect.

OS X :: IMac - Loss Of Both Ethernet & Airport Internet Access

Mar 6, 2009

I have a 24" iMac that has completely all of a sudden stopped wanting to connect to the internet. However, my Macbook, connected to the same ethernet cord or wireless network, works flawlessly and has no trouble. The iMac will find the wireless network...show full bars...then drop a bar....then another bar, then another, until only the smallest bar is available. It will transfer data but only for a few seconds until it wont work at all. Now the macbook, sitting right next to the imac will show full bars and stay that way. So i tried a ethernet cable to the iMac and it will not even pull up 1 single page, but the same cable connected to my Macbook will work flawlessly.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Default Website Not Showing

Mar 1, 2012

Just upgraded a Snow Leopard Server to Lion Server 10.7.3 and the Web Service works along with all of my virtual hosts BUT the default site that shows isn't the one that Server.app says should show, its the first virtual host that shows.

I've tried adding "ServerName myserver.mydomain.com" params into the 0000_any_80_.conf which hasn't worked. Anyone know a workaround for this? Can't use the Wiki or Webmail without it.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: VPN Drops Connection From The Same Source IP?

Mar 14, 2012

I have a Lion Server running at my house.  I often VPN through the server when connecting to public wifi.  However if I'm at work and connect to the VPN server and then a 2nd user from work connect to the VPN then the first connection gets dropped.  I'm guessing because both connections are coming from the same source IP address.  Is there any way to change this behavior?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 21.5 (2.7 I5) 8GB 10.7.3 Keeps Dropping Its Internet Connection?

Feb 14, 2012

I have an iMac 2.7 i5, 8GB, OS X Lion 10.7.3.  I purchased this iMac just about 3 weeks ago and from the beginning experienced regular dropping of the internet connection. I have cleared all other networks that appeared in the Preferred Network window other than my own. I have also unchecked the "Remember what other networks this computer has joined" box just in case I needed to. No luck. I am using an ATT 2Wire wireless router that's just over a year old but I haven't experienced the connection drop problem with an older Macbook (about 4 years old) that I also own.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Keeps Dropping Ethernet Internet Connection?

Mar 5, 2012

I know this has been a wifi issue for many, but this is occurring with ethernet as well on our iMac 2.93. Only began with Lion update. All other 5 Macs (Snow Lep/Lep/Tiger) and several PC's on network have no problem. Have set iMac's internet connections to static/manual ip. Worked for a few days, then back to dropping. This is obviously an OS issue.

Or to somehow deactivate all the synchronizing and other Activity that goes on in the background?
