OS X :: AirPort Lost Wireless Connection To Router And Kernel Panic

Jun 17, 2009

I have a three month old unibody MacBook, and up until yesterday, AirPort seemed to be working just fine, but over the past 15 hours or so, it has lost its wireless connection to the router four times. Two of the times, AirPort reconnected to the router on its own within a matter of seconds. One of the other times, AirPort said that it was enabled but not connected to any networks, and I had to manually reselect my router in the drop-down to reconnect. Now this morning, AirPort lost its connection to the router yet still showed that it was properly connected, but I couldn't access my network or the Internet at all. As soon as I disabled and re-enabled AirPort, everything was fine.

On top of this, I also got my first kernel panic yesterday for seemingly no reason while I was submitting a post to a forum, and I've submitted dozens of posts to that forum before without problem, so the forum can't be to blame. Normally one random disconnect from my router wouldn't be alarming, but four disconnects in the last 15 hours combined with a kernel panic that may or may not be related certainly has me searching for answers. I'm certainly quite confounded, especially considering that I haven't modified anything with my system, nor have I installed any programs in a long time. Should I be alarmed, or could this all be some coincidence?

Hardware :: Use Router To Speed Up Connection?

Sep 30, 2009

My room is the farthest away from the router that we have in my house, and as a result, I get fairly slower connection than everyone else. Would a wireless router(if this wouldn't work what will) let me put that in my room(without plugging it in via ethernet) and show me an increase in speed?

PowerPC :: Able To Get A Connection On The Second Floor The Router Is In The Basement?

Jun 9, 2008

My dad recently put in a new wireless router (a D-Link 802.11n model) at my house.My aluminum 12" powerbook with an airport extreme card suddenly gets much worse reception at home than ever before (previously with a 2Wire 802.11b model).The problem isn't so much speed or reliability when I'm connected, but the range. I used to be able to get a connection on the second floor (the router is in the basement, right where the old one always was) but now I can only connect at my kitchen table, one floor directly above the router. I can't even connect when I'm in the basement. What am I doing wrong? What can I do to fix this, if anything?

Jun 8, 2009

I've got a Mac Pro and a Linksys Wireless N Router. I've got my cable modem hooked up at the moment directly to my Mac Pro. I was wondering if there was a way to share my internet connection on my other connection to the router? In other words, internet comes into the Mac Pro, shares with the wireless router, which broadcasts it to a third computer.

Hardware :: Router Trouble: WLAN Connection But No Internet

May 17, 2008

About a week ago I got a DrayTek Vigor 2910VG router. The thing's a dream in terms of features (VoIP, Dual WAN, USB port, etc.), but WLAN has been a complete headache. After a fresh restart of my iMac (see my sig for the computers on my home network, all of which are affected by this problem), I can usually connect to the WPA/WPA2-encrypted WLAN. Then, for reasons I can't determine, I will lose all access to the Internet and to other computers on the local network.

Hardware :: AirPort (TimeCapsule) Looses Connection To Router?

Nov 7, 2009

I have a strange issue with my TimeCapsule (firmware version 7.4.2). The TimeCapsule is connected to my router, an AVM FRITZ!Box 7140, via an ethernet cable, and I connect my MacBook Pro wirelessly with the Time Capsule. Every few hours or so (but sometimes once in every 10 minutes), the light on the TimeCapsule blinks yellow for about 10 seconds, and during that time the MacBook Pro looses connection to the internet. My best guess is that the TimeCapsule somehow looses its own internet connection.

Two more details: the TimeCapsule is in Bridge Mode, and I do not see any relevant entries in AirPort Utility's logs...

Software :: Fixing Macbook Connection To Wireless Router?

Jun 26, 2008

I cannot connect a macbook to the d-link di-524. Macbook model: MB403LL/A 13.3". When I try to connect thru the AirPort the connection gets timed-out. As far as I understand the problem is with the security system. The DI-524 is set-up for WEP 64bit HEX and i tried using the laptop set-up for WEP password with 40-128 bit range with HEX configuration. When I remove the security system from the router, connection is easy.

OS X :: Can't Browse Secure Websites On Mac Through PPPoE Connection On Briged Router?

Mar 29, 2009

I've set up my Netgear DGN2000 router in bridge mode to accommodate 4 machines to connect to the internet through a PPPoE broadband connection. The mac connects through airport.

All the PC's in the setup can browse without problems.

The mac however can only log into certain secure websites (like facebook, online forums, online banking ext) but then no further browsing is possible. MSN can also not log on. Other websites seems to work just fine.

I'm running OS x 10.4.11, Firefox 3.0.8, Safari 3.0.4.

Steps I have already taken to try and solve the problem is:

Adjusted the MTU value (ranging fro 1500 to 1300) of the router and Mac airport.

Setup up the ISP DNS server ip on the router and / or Mac airport connection. I also tried certain "open" DNS ips.

Cleared the Mac DNS cache

Cleared the browser history and cookies.

Hardware :: Connection To Internet - Acts Like Searching For Wireless Router And Can't Find It

Aug 28, 2010

Recently I have been having issues loading internet content. When I try to load almost any website, my internet browser acts like it is searching for my wireless router and can't find it. However, when I use my PSP to connect to the internet from the same spot, it works perfectly fine. The PSP usually says there is a 70% connection, which is better than it has ever been. My router and laptop are on the same floor only a room away.

I have other people in my house that share the router: 6 computers; 4 are laptops that are used more often than the 2 desktops, 4 iPod Touches; 2 of which are never used. I had everyone turn off Bluetooth on all devices since none of us use that feature and that didn't help all.

I honestly don't know what the problem is, but if I had to make a guess, it would be all of the things that our devices can connect to with AirPort. There is Motorola, 2WIRE017, 2WIRE160, 2WIRE417, 2WIRE730, MartinWirelessRouter, NorzWireless, NETGEAR, schooly, and stackdaddy. I think all of these wireless connections are disrupting one another, which is what I thought was causing the problem. The only one I ever care to connect to is Motorola, so is there a way to prevent my computer from even recognizing anything else?

OS X :: Internet Connection Lost Every Few Minutes

Nov 30, 2010

a few days ago I noticed that my Late 2009 Macbook seemed to lose its internet connection every few minutes just for a couple of seconds only to reconnect. I have no idea why this problem suddenly started occurring, I had not not modified any hardware or software. Strangely enough, this happens whether I use Wifi (at work) or Mobile Broadband via USB ( at home) so I don't think it can be blamed on the internet connection. Stranger still, I should probably not be talking of losing my internet connection but of not being able to access the internet: While again being in a few seconds of slump, I checked my Mobile Broadband Manager and it was not disconnected, upstream traffic was occurring! Just the downstream was at zero. I run windows with bootcamp on the same Mac and there the internet works without trouble. I have all the newest updates installed.
