OS X :: Straight Ethernet Work Between Macs?

Apr 11, 2009

I know it worked during migration assistant but does it work all the time?

I need to slurp off the 40+ gig music directory from the old machine as MA didn't get it ... and I figure direct eth-eth would be fastest.

if it does, do I just use network to find the other mac?

OS X :: Connecting Two Macs Via Ethernet?

Mar 23, 2009

I have an iMac and a Mac Pro that I frequently connect with a ethernet cable to transfer movies back and forth, When I do this, it messes up the internet connection between the two Macs as well as Windows computers in the house. The internet connection will just stop every few minutes and it takes several clicks to get links to open. If I click on a link once, I just get the spinning wheel and that will keep spinning all night if I let it, same with the Windows computers. Web pages never load up completly, even now there is a blue bar accross the internet address as I am typing this in Safari.

The problem remains for a long long time, even days after I've removed the ethernet cable from the Macs.

The computers are all using WiFi and an AEBS.

Applications :: Does Software Work On Multiple Macs?

Jan 6, 2011

I'm sure this has been asked but I've looked through many of the pages on the news stories, and I've also looked on the OSX forums from today and didn't find anything, so . . .

I have three macs. An iMac for home, a personal MBP I use at work, and a mac mini connected to the TV. If I download an app from the Mac App store, will that work on all three of my computers? It appears to be setup similarly to the iTunes store, that each purchase is connected to your itunes account. If this is that case, then wouldn't one purchase work on all machines?

When I buy a movie from itunes I can play it on any computer (up to 5), along with any ipod, iphone, ipad.

Software :: Connecting Via Ethernet To Work LAN?

May 9, 2008

I have to connect to the work LAN using an ethernet cable, with the IP address and port number they give me.

I get so far as being able to download my email but can not send email or connect to the internet with safari.

I enter the IP address through System Prefs - Network.

I enter it under DHCP with manual address. I can not find anywhere to enter a port number

I run all the usual diagnostics (through safari when it can't connect)

I am the only mac user on the rig, and as I am only there for 2-3 days at a time I can't seem to find anyone who knows what to do. The are all PC users. I have a MacBook Pro OSX v 10.5.2

MacBook Pro :: Ethernet Port Doesn't Work

Jun 26, 2012

Brand new 2012 MBP 15":

Network system prefs recognizes that the Ethernet cable is plugged in but flips between unknown state an cable unplugged. Never gets a DHCP address. When the cable is unplugged, it stays on the unplugged status.  

As a note, I am having trouble getting Parallels to recognize any network connection at all, butmy immediate concern is the ethernet port.

Hardware :: Apple Laying Ground Work For TRIM Support In Future SSD-based Macs?

Jun 14, 2010

Apple may be laying the foundation for TRIM support in future Macs, a technology that should allow their solid state flash drives to maintain optimal performance throughout the life span of the systems.The Mac maker's most recent 13-inch MacBook Pros display an option for TRIM support in their system profilers on SSD-equipped models, one which isn't present in either the second-generation unibody 15-inch MacBook Pros or the latest refresh sporting Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 processors.TRIM is essentially a command that lets operating systems like Mac OS X inform SSDs of which blocks of pre-written data are no longer in use, allowing them to be wiped clean internally.

OS X :: Direct Ethernet Connection Between Macbook And Imac Won't Work

Dec 4, 2009

I have an ethernet cable. i have an alu macbook. i have an iMac. i need to transfer files between the two. tried connecting the ethernet cables. on the macbook it says "ethernet cable not plugged in"

on the iMac it says "ethernet cable not plugged in".

i know the ethernet cable works because i brought my macbook up to my router and used the ethernet cable to connect to the internet. it is Cat5 or whatever. i've tried everything static IP addresses. restarting. replugging. over and over and over. no luck. the macs just pretend there is no ethernet cable plugged in. tried DHCP. tried manually. but it works when i connect my macbook to my modem.

i've tried everything. i've googled, i've mroogled. nothing works. i spend two hours trying to work this out myself before coming here. every single webpage online just says "oh just turn on file sharing LOL then it works" not for me it doesn't. i've tried that. i've tried it over and over and over again. it doesn't work for me. still won't recognize.

i'd use wireless connection to transfer but that'd take like 20+ hours to send 60GB+ of data. too long (iMac is not at my house) are ethernet cables just fail? this is a BRAND NEW 20 inch imac and a aluminum macbook from 2008.

MacBook Pro :: Ethernet Port Doesn't Work In OSX But Does In Boot Camp

Nov 30, 2007

Been troubleshooting this one awhile...I even did an Archive and Reinstall....my Ethernet port on my 2.16Ghz MBP won't connect to anything. I get an IPv6 address when plugging into a router, but DHCP never works and a manually assigned IP doesn't work either. Reboot into Windows and it works fine...I've tried removing the Ethernet port, and have futzed with all the settings trying to reset it, but no dice. Problem started somewhere around 10.4.9, I think...I'm on 10.4.11...I reinstalled to .8 and worked my way back up...never works.

Hardware :: Can AirPort Extreme Work Via Cat5 Ethernet Port Within Network?

Dec 11, 2009

Can my AirPort Extreme work via a Cat5 ethernet port within my network? I ask because we've had no luck doing this where as our older Airport Express works just fine this way. Thoughts? We upgraded to the Extreme to extend the signal (and have 2 antennas) and trying to avoid hooking it up to the cable modem box which is even further away than where the Airport Express was located.

Hardware :: Extend Network Will AEBS Connect Wirelessly And Allow Ethernet Ports To Work?

Oct 2, 2010

What I want to be able to do is plug into the Ethernet ports on this AEBS, and I want that to use wireless to the other wireless router to give me network access. Here is the deal, I have a computer that doesn't have wireless network on it, so it's only Ethernet. I have the AEBS at my desk, and I want to connect the hardwired computer into the AEBS. I want the AEBS to then wirelessly connect that computer that is hard-wired to the network...

OS X :: Ethernet Cable Connecting Ethernet Port To IPhone - Feasible?

May 20, 2009

I was just wondering if any other macrumorsmembers have been in the situation where there's no wifi, no decent 3G, but ethernet ports available to use, but you don't have a computer handy? Would it be possible that you could create an ethernet cable one end, dock the other, and literally connect e.g. an iPhone into the ethernet? At my place of work, there's no signal (dodgy GPRS/flakey Edge), some wifi, but in halls of residence, you get 1 ethernet port, and you can't put a wireless router onto it. It would seem that it would be an interesting solution, if it was possible.

Hardware :: IPhone Goes Straight To Voicemail?

Feb 20, 2008

I bought an iPhone yesterday and I'm already on my second one with a second SIM card. Set up was easy enough but when someone calls me it goes straight to voicemail. This is the same problem I had with the first phone and SIM card. I took the first phone back to AT&T and they replaced the SIM card. When that didn't work I took the iPhone back to an Apple store and they replaced the phone and reinstalled the second SIM card.

I just came home, went through the set up and it still goes straight to voicemail. A friend suggested that it might be in "airplane mode" but I checked and it is off.
