OS X :: Unable To Connect To Local Wireless Network / Gets Connection Failed


I have five Macs in the house, all of which can see each other on the local wireless network...but...for some weird reason, none but when they try to connect, I get �Connection Failed� after several minutes of silence.

When I click �Connect As...� in hopes of getting a login screen, nothing happens at all. Nada. Zilch. Zip.

The sharing settings on the MacBook are identical to the ones on the other five. Of course, the MacBook can connect the other direction to everyone, including my brand spankin� new MBP.

Any clues, oh wise ones? I�m stumped. What is it about getting into a simple MacBook that has two G4s and two MBPs scratching their heads?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Not Connect To ANY Wireless Network/connection Failed
I have one of every type of the newest Macs: MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro. Since upgrading them to Snow Leopard, none of them will connect to any wireless network -- regardless of the router (AirPort, Linksys, Cisco, etc.) and regardless of the type of security (open, WEP, WPA, etc.).

Every time I attempt to connect, I get the message that the "connection failed." Here's a 20 second screen recording of what's happening.

OS X Leopard :: Cant Connect To All Of Macs On Our Network / Connection Failed
I work in a mix Mac and PC environment at a video production facility. We have about eight Macs always connected and two or three additional laptops that may or may not be connected at any given time.

From our Final Cut Pro 1 workstation, I can connect to our ProTools 3 workstation's drop-box, but ProTools 3 cannot connect to the drop-box on the Final Cut Pro 1 workstation. Every other Mac on the network CAN connect to FCP1's drop-box EXCEPT ProTools 3. When you try to connect they system appears to try and eventually times out. Using "connect as" gets the same result. ProTools 3 can also connect to every drop-box on the network EXCEPT FCP1. The setting in sharing and network between the computers matches.

Hardware :: Unable To Use Wireless Printer / Connection Failed?
My family owns 2 MacBooks plus XP desk top and Vista laptop. Wireless setup is provided with an older linksys a/b/g router and Comcast Cable Modem. The 2 MacBooks have frequent problems printing to the Brother 5250 DN printer, with connect fails. I have to reset the IP addresss frequently to get the printers to work with the wireless side of the network. The Windows OS PC's don't experience this problem. I am at a loss as to why the Macs have this IP problems.

OS X :: Unable To Connect IMac To PC On Wireless Network
I am trying to connect my new iMac (Leopard OS) to a PC running Windows XP Home Edition using the wireless router. I have the PC connected to the internet via modem/router (supplied by Aliant, the SpeedStream 6520). I have been able to "get on" the internet with iMac using the wireless router. However, I can't get the PC and iMac to connect together over the wireless router inorder to share files etc. On the PC side:

1) I disabled the Windows firewall
2) have set up and named a sharing folder
3) have set up a "work group" name
4) believe I have the correct user name and password
5) not sure about the "network" name, (?SSID) information.
6) have a # with several periods in it that I don't know if this is the computer ID, IP address, or one of the above items, or if they are all one and the same.

On the iMac side:
1) have the IP address of the iMac
2) I have tried "connect to server" but am unable
3) I have never been able to see a "shared" section on the left side of the finder screen.

I have read the thread by "edesignuk". However I did not "put your mac in the same workgroup as your windows PC" as I couldn't find the correct screens on the iMac, and also in phone discussion with Apple help they said they had never done that and advised against it!

OS X :: Unable To Login To Network / Login Disabled And Connection Failed
G4 MDD networked with Mini for approx. 3 years now via a LinkSys BEFSR41 wired router. Ethernet cables are CAT6's with gold-plated ends. Did an erase/install (+ updates) of Panther on G4. ISP is Comcast Cable. Just upgraded my Motorola modem from Surfboard 5100 to SB 5101 yesterday. My network settings are ok...file sharing is turned on...I can ping each 'puter from the other (showing my connection is good).

I have internet access (showing that the router is still good according to Cisco). Now, however, I can't even bring up the window on the G4 asking for my pw....all I get is connection failed, no response from the server. From the Mini, I get Unknown User, incorrect password or login is disabled. I haven't a clue what the problem can be. Everything I do daily depends upon the network connection.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To Wireless N Network (chn 1)
im having trouble connecting my macbook pro to my network. it was working fine initially on chn 6 and 11. however, i did a site survey and noticed that all of my neighbours are on those channels as such, changing it to chn1 would mean less interference. after the change of channel, the connection speed and strength on my pc displayed improved. however, my macbook could only detect the network intermittently and even if it does, theres always a connection time out error. i attempted to delete the wireless profile and create a new one but to avail. the macbook is located right next to my pc and signal strength was 5/5 before the change of channel. Id love to keep chn 1 as it displayed drastic change in performance speed.

IMac :: Unable To Connect To Existing Home Wireless Network
We have a PC in the upstairs office with cable/DSL router for Internet (through Comcast). This service also has a wireless connection. We have a Macbook laptop which connects effortlessly to our home network and we use it all over the house. We simply clicked the internet symbol on the top right (looks like a little amphitheater), selected out network, entered the password and have been connected ever since.

Today we brought home a new iMac and set it up in basement office. Tried the same routine. Clicked on the internet symbol, selected our network, noticed that the signal is just as strong as it is upstairs, typed in password but that's as far as we get.

I've gone the rounds with the Assist and the Utility features. I've shut the Airport on and off. I've tried setting up a new network. I do notice that the iMac has a "self-assigned" ISP "and cannot connect to the Internet." Does this mean I can't ever connect? Do we need to replace the self-assigned ISP with our Comcast IP address?

I've read here and there that our router might have Macs blocked and we could add this iMac as a secure system to get on the network. But we haven't played with the router's settings because we wouldn't know how. Besides, the Macbook connects fine.

Does this have anything to do with TimeMachine?

OS X Leopard :: Can't Connect To Wireless Network "connection Timeout"
I saw a similar thread, but I decided to post this in its own thread, because my problem isn't Airport-related, as is the one posted in the other thread. I have an Airport base station at home, and there have been no problems there. However, since upgrading to Leopard, I am no longer able to connect to the free Wi-Fi that is provided at work, by my employer. Every time I try, I get a "connection timeout" error. Other people are still able to connect to this network just fine, and nothing has changed there. My system seems to be the only thing that has changed, so logically, this appears to be a problem with Leopard.

I tried using the network diagnostic tool, to see if I could figure it out, and I got a message that says that my network password is invalid, which is strange indeed, because it is an open network, and no password is required to access it!

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Connect To WPA-PSK Wireless / Safari Not Connecting To Network
Airport sucks. A lot. It works just fine in WEP or unprotected networks, but WPA-PSK it doesn't do a damn thing. It shows it as connected with a full signal, but Safari, iChat, etc... won't connect to the internet. For some reason Azureus works, but it's going at an amazing 146 bytes/sec and then back down to 0. What's going on here guys? This is my first Mac and I am sorely disappointed in Airport.

OS X Tiger :: Cannot Connect Between Computers On Local Network
I have two computers on my local network and they don't see each other. I can't connect between them using Go->Connect To Server. I want to connect to an iTunes library on one computer (running 10.6) from the other (running 10.4). I have file sharing turned on on the snow leopard machine and all the right settings in iTunes (having one set to share its library and the other set to look for libraries). But it seems to be a networking issue since the machines can't see each other in general on the network.

I have used a switch and airport express to connect my macbook to the internet (via DSL) since my G5 is not outfitted with an airport card. Now, I would like to wirelessly connect the macbook to the macpro to share files. Is this possible if the macpro does not have an airport card?

I have configured the macbook to share files, but there is no airport icon to go to on the macpro to sit it up.

MacBook Pro :: Connection Failed To PC On Network
Just purchased a MacBook last Friday. Previously, I was working on an HP desktop. I have all the computers in my home hardwired to a linksys router. I purchased a Airport Extreme to create a wireless bridge for my MacBook. However, I cannot connect to my home PC's. My desktop will show up occasionally in "My Places", but when I click to connect it fails every time. In addition, my MacBook does not show up in my network places on the HP either.

OS X :: Connection Failed When Accessing MPB Over Network
I'm working on a friend's MPB and when ever I try to connect to it from mine (I created the network from my MPB which is almost identical to his), His MPB shows up in finder, but it always says "Connecting..." and then "Connection Failed". Sharing is enabled on his MPB and the firewall is disabled. I have been through everything that I can think of to try and fix this, short of re-installing Leopard. His MBP came with Leopard pre-installed, so there is no need to worry about the upgrade messing things up. I have checked from a MacBook and that one cannot connect either, but both connect to mine with no problems.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Set Up A Local Wireless Network Without Access To Internet
In OSX 10.6, I can use "internet sharing" to set up a wireless network, connecting my wifi enabled music player (or Apple TV) to my MacBook Pro via wifi without actually connect my Macbook Pro to the Internet.  However with OSX 10.7 Lion, "internet sharing" requires actual connection to the Internet.  Is there a way to disable Lion's requirement?  All I need is to stream the music files in my Mac via wifi to my music player (Logitech Squeeze Box 3), and I don't always have access to the Internet.  Of course an Airport Express or any router would solve the problem, but that means one more device. 

Or, is there any other method to set up a local wireless network without actual Internet access?  I tried "Creat Network...." in Airport but that doesn't work with passive music player (or Apple TV).  It seems only work with computer to computer networking.

MacBook Pro :: Connect To Local Network Storage Without Finder?
(I think) but here we have a NAS (Network Access Storage) that everyone can access. Anyways, on a PC you go to network under my computer (or just computer or 7 now) and in there it is listed along with the other computers on the network. That's all good. On the Mac side you can see it as well, and that's all good. Here is what I am trying to figure out; on a pc in the computer navigation bar you can type addresses. For example the drive was not popping up earlier under the "network", so I just type "//DriveName" into the bar and it opened it up as if I had clicked it.

Snow Leopard :: Permission On LaCie MiniHD Connect In Local Network
I have a LaCie MiniHD connect in my local network. Did everything LaCie told me to do so I could write to the USB attached LaCie drive. Formatted the drive in OS X EXtended but not journalized. Tried to connect via smb://MiniHD._smb._tcp.local and the network told me to enter my ID and Password, I don't know why. So I brought back the disk drive to my mac and changed the whole drive permission to read and write for everyone. Brought back the drive to my TV and now I could transfer anything from my mac to the drive.

I was glad of that, but having shut down the drive and the MiniHD connect, when I opened it again to transfer something from my mac to the drive, I still got the same problem again with the same message. "One or more elements cannot be copied to "LaCie_750" because you don't have the permission to read. Do you want to copy the elements you are authorized to read." I suspect the software on the Lacie MiniHD connect to block OS X when it initialises the drive on startup. In particular I see a folder named _HF2VN~W appearing in the root level of the drive.

OS X Leopard :: Connection Failed On PS CS3 Startup / Not Connected To The Network
I have posted this query on the Adobe PS discussion board as well so as to maximise coverage. I have a copy of CS3 installed on two machines, a Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. Both machines running OSX at the current latest level 10.5.7

The Mac Pro CS3 serial number is the one supplied on the retail packaging and the serial number of CS3 on the Macbook is a substitute number that Adobe gave me when I discovered that I had deleted a machine's system and data before deactivating CS3. I was given the new number so that I could install on the as then new Macbook Pro.

On the Macbook Pro when connected to the WWW Photoshop starts up promptly and works correctly. When the Macbook Pro is not connected to any network Photoshop takes a very long time to start and displays the


Connection Failed - The server may not exist etc etc message.


Repeated clicking on the Photoshop icon in the Dock will eventually get Photoshop running. The error message appears while PS is scanning for plug-ins. On the Mac Pro Photoshop starts up correctly whether or not the machine is connected to the network. On the Macbook Pro other CS3 applications start up correctly regardless of whether the computer is connected to the network. The question is how can I overcome this problem.

OS X Tiger :: Failed Network Connection Report / Sending Error
I have a chronic error message popping up on my screen, alerting me that my Powerbook is unable to make a network connection. I had at one time networked my Powerbook with my iMac (both G-4, OSX v4) but have since disconnected the iMac, and use only the laptop. So my laptop now goes searching for its friend, reports back frequently and sadly that it can't be found.

How can I convince my Powerbook that its sidekick is gone forever, and it should no longer search for it and send me reports of failure?

OS X Leopard :: Opening Printer Connection Failed / Unable To Open Printer Connection
I have seen a few other discussions about this and have followed the advice (that I found, perhaps there is some I haven't seen), but I still can't get around this. After a software update my printer now comes up with this error message "Opening Printer Connection Failed: Unable to open the printer connection. Please check your printer connections and check for printer errors". The printer is connected by a USB cord. I have checked that the computer recognises the USB and have also tried resetting the printing system and re-starting the computer and adding the printer again. This has not solved the problem.

Today, Server Admin can no longer connect to the local server. I've tried stopping and starting com.apple.servermgrd but it still cannot connect. Is my only option at this point a reboot?

Last night I backed up my MacBookPro by connecting it to my desktop Mac with the MacBookPro in target disk mode. The backup completed, but I allowed the battery on the laptop to deplete. After restarting the laptop, my airport connection was not made to my wireless network. After connecting, I checked the System Preferences - Network. I get a message: "Your network settings have been changed by another application." with an "OK" button. After clicking OK, the message returns. It won't go away. I have been able to click the "click the lock to prevent further changes" in between message return to stop it. System Preferences becomes confused and I must force quit. However after reboot, I'm still not connecting to my wireless LAN unless I manually make the connection.

OS X :: Losing Wireless Network Connection
I am running into a headache with my wireless network connections. When I close my laptop to put it to sleep, I often lose my network connection. It is easy enough to reconnect; I simply try to connect to a web page, get network diagnostics, and re-enter my password (and click on the "remember password" box). All works great -- until I next close the laptop. It happens all the time at one site, sometimes at home (using Time Capsule), and seldom at the church where I volunteer.

I have checked all my settings and can't figure out what's going on. If my poor memory is correct, I didn't use to have this problem, but it has been going on for the last couple of months. I know I could keep the sucker open, but I want to save power by putting it to sleep -- and the desk where I work at home has a sliding drawer so it has to be closed to close the drawer. (And my network connections are all in the desk also.) I've posted this question to the Apple forum but haven't gotten any replies there other than a couple of followup questions. I am using Time Capsule as my router and I have updated the software

Snow Leopard :: Unable To Access Win7 Shares - Connection Failed
I have been through this countless times. I have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 on a MBP and windows 7 on a desktop. I have multiple shares on the windows machine that I access from my mac. All of a sudden, when transferring a file over smb, the transfer quits because the data "cannot be read or written" and I am unable to access the shares. When I try to reconnect to the shares I get an error saying:

"Connection Failed. There was an error connecting to the server "10.0.10.5". Check the server name or IP address, and then try again. If you are unable to resolve the problem contact your system administrator (Thats Me)."

This problem persists until I restart both the mac and the pc. I use account protected sharing, not guest sharing on the pc but I have tried both with the same result. I have adjusted the 'Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level' in windows. Every 12 months or so I do a clean install on my systems and the problem disappears. After a period of time that could be 1 day or 10 months the problem returns. I have seen this issue since 10.5 and Vista and it keeps crawling back.
