OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Lose Internet Connection / Network Configurations Have Changed

Mar 23, 2012

I connect with my MacBook Pro via ethernet to the internet. So far, I've never had a problem until a couple of days, I keep on loosing the internet connect. When clicking through diagnostics, ISP, Internet and Server show first organge then turn red. If clicking through the diagnostics, sometimes I am lucky and it shows a message saying "Network configurations have chnaged", when I click ok, I'm online again. But very often nothing helps and I have to re-start the router again.

MacBook Pro :: WiFi Internet Connection - Network Configuration Changed

Apr 2, 2012

I'm looking for a solution to my WiFi internet connection.I haven't used my MacBook Pro laptop in the last week or so - which means there is no way I have done any changes to the network configuration. However when I now try to connect to the internet via a Hub - which is previously set up on the macbook and worked no problem - is now not working at all.

MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X :: Internet Connection - Built In Ethernet Configurations

Apr 19, 2009

How to connect my powermac g4 to the internet. I was told that it has the "built-in ethernet" and that all I need to do is config it so it will pick up the wireless signal from the router on the main family computer. But whenever I go to config the network connection, and check the status, it tells me that the built-in Ethernet is not plugged in. Do I not have the built in ethernet? I just want to connect to the internet, but I don't want to spend over $120 to have geeksquad come and do it if I can just do it myself.

Intel Mac :: Why Does It Sometimes Use 100% CPU (kernel_task) And Lose Internet Connection

Jun 24, 2012

I have a 27" iMac running OSX Lion 10.7.3. Some time in the last 2-3 weeks, it has started to getting into a state where the kernel_task is using 100% of one CPU constantly. When this happens, it also kills my Internet connection and I cannot use the browser, email, Skype, Twitter, etc. I have tried putting it to sleep, closing all programs that are open checked the process list with ps to see if I could find anything weird, but it still keeps happening. 

I have to restart the computer whenever this happens. It might happen again in a couple of minutes or not for several hours, but happen it does. I thought it might be Chrome or Mail for a while, but it happened today when those were not running.

OS X :: Leopard Internet Sharing Network But No Connection

Nov 5, 2007

I recently did a clean install of leopard and then migrated my account back on to my MBP non-santa rosa 2.33. Now, when I attempt to internet share from my ethernet to computers using airport, they are able to see the network, connect to it, and put in the password, but internet fails to connect. I'm on a college network, but this shouldn't really matter since I currently have a network of this type working perfectly on an iMac running Tiger. The signal reads at full strength and behaves just like it should, just it doesn't allow an internet connection. No firewall is on.

OS X :: No Internet Connection Via Ethernet On Snow Leopard

Apr 18, 2010

I currently have MacBook 13" and iMac both running on Snow Leopard. I have no problem connecting to the internet via Airport Express wifi but if I have to connect directly to internet from Ethernet port using Ethernet connection I can't connect to it. The Internet and Server lights are showing "amber" in the network diagnostic tool.

The modem is the DLink DSL 302G. I have used http://10.1.1.1/ to ensure the username and password of the ISP are correct. What I don't get is if it works via Apple's Airport Express router why wouldn't it work with straight Ethernet connection from the modem?

Software :: Snow Leopard Internet Connection

Jan 19, 2010

I've just upgraded to the new Snow Leapard 10.6.5 and I haven't been able to get internet since. I had to set up the TCP/IP manually because the self-assigned ip address wouldn't let me connect to my router. My mac says it's connected to my private network but there's no internet connection. What's the problem here?

OS X :: Disable Network Connection Reminder Snow Leopard?

Nov 21, 2009

I recently upgraded to SL and the internet connection works fine, but every 1o minutes or so I get a pop up window which says:

'Network Connection'This is a reminder that your connection is still active. Do you wish to remain connected?

On Tiger it was easy to disable this reminder, but I can't seem to be able to do the same on SL.

OS X :: Will Snow Leopard Recognize Mirror Configurations?

May 31, 2009

I'm currently setting up two 1TB hard drives as mirrored RAID drives.

Seems easy enough to do through Disk Utility, though zeroing out the data takes about 1.5 days for each drive, due to their size I assume.

Will it be easy to migrate these drives to Snow Leopard?

Will it just be a matter of adding them to the RAID list in SL's Disk Utility? Will it recognize them automatically?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Internet Connection Fails Even Though Connected?

May 12, 2012

As of this morning my Macbook is failing to connect to the internet even though both the ethernet and airport are showing they are connected and are green in the network panel. My husband's internet connection is fine (we both have Macbooks and go through the same router) hence I'm able to send this out. After looking at a similar discussion list, we have tried restarting the computer, deleting airport and adding it back in (although it's also an ethernet problem), deleting system configuration, restoring the whole Library..

OS X :: Snow Leopard Not Connect To ANY Wireless Network/connection Failed

Sep 12, 2009

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 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?

OS X :: Network At Home For Internet Connection

Sep 10, 2010

I am going to move into a new house soon. I am looking to network the house, so I can use the internet anywhere, share movies,etc. This is my current setup at my apartment.
1 x Mac Mini connected to my TV in the lounge
1 x Apple TV connected to the TV in the bedroom
1 x Main PC in the study room (which all my movies/tv series/music/etc... is stored)
2 x Laptops
1 x Apple 20" Cinema Display

The mac mini is connected via ethernet to the router & the apple tv is connected via WiFi. Its currently a small place so the apple tv can access the router's wireless signal. This is what I have in mind for our new house which kinda big in size. Trash the PC and buy a mac mini server and external NAS storage. The NAS storage will store all the movies/tv series/mp3's/etc. I currently have a ubiquity nanostation2 which I can setup to boost the wireless signal throughout the house so we can use wireless anywhere in the house & tv mac mini, laptops & apple tv can access the wireless (so i do not have to install ethernet cables throughout the house). Also in the future, I would want to install security cameras outside the house (still trying to find a good mac OS X security camera software). Before I buy the mac mini server & NAS, am i missing anything or is there another better solution?

Software :: Network Internet Connection - XP Box?

May 16, 2009

Firstly here is my configuration I need help with. My friends windows xp machine has a broadband connection in another part of the house. My iMac connects to this wirelessly via a WiFi dongle. I also have a windows xp machine networked to my iMac via a crossover cable. I would like to be able to have my xp box connect to the internet by perhaps accessing the wifi dongle on my Mac. I know I could just purchase another dongle and do it that way, easier but would defeat the purpose.

PowerPC :: G5 Network Connection Fails "other Application Changed"?

Jan 12, 2011

I have: Power PC G5 dual 2.3 w 10.4.11 os, Lost Internet connection. (ethernet cable direct to router), No known cause. Checked router,cable etc. All work fine w other computers etc. router does not "see/read" when cable connected to G5. I figured Ethernet card is dead. Can't afford new card figured I'd try: Net gear G54 wireless USB adapter, just to get back online. Downloaded driver for Mac etc. Went to System Prefernces to set up. Opened System Preferences then Network, Automatically this message drops down: "Your network settings have been changed by another application" When I click "ok" same message automatically drops back down. Cannot access "Network settings" at all.

OS X :: Connect To Home Network From Remote Internet Connection?

Mar 19, 2007

I have a non-fixed IP with BT for my home network and am curious if I can set things up to access my home machines and volumes when I am abroad. A step-by-step guide to this process would, no doubt, be useful to a number of MR members. If there is a kind soul who could post an idiot-proof set of instructions that would be great, and would perhaps be put up as a user guide here at MR.

Mac Pro :: Internet/Ethernet Network Connection Slows To A Crawl?

Apr 1, 2012

The last few days I've had a problem where the Internet network connection speed on my Power Mac slows to a crawl (about 1Mbps) and can only be fixed by re-starting the Mac which restores normal connexction performance for a while. The Internet connection runs at around 35-37Mbps and is routed via a BT HomeHub 3. The laptops which connect via WiFi don't show any slowdown in speed tests, only the Mac Pro, which is connected to the Hub via Ethernet. I've tried swapping between the two Ethernet ports on the Mac but it doesn't make any difference. The HomeHub has been in for about 5 months but this problem has only just started in the last week or so and the period for which the restart restores the network performance seems to be decreasing. Is there any way to reset network software, or some prefs I could delete? It's an early 2008 eight-core Xeon MacPro running 10.6.8, 8GB RAM.

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.

Applications :: Network Monitoring Software For Wireless Internet Connection?

Apr 29, 2005

At home I have about four laptops and one desktop computers. All of them use a wireless connection to connect to the internet. Sometimes, one of my siblings is downloading something huge or is downloading torrents or what not and it cripples the speed for the rest of us.

I also can't see if someone has managed to crack my WEP password and is using my connection (a neighbor or someone). Is there freeware that tells me who is connected to my network and how much traffic or data they are using?

OS X :: Slow Internet On Wired Connection - Fast Wireless On Same Network

Jul 15, 2009

My Internet has just been upgraded from 2MB/s to 10MB/s. To confirm the upgrade I have used [URL:...] to test my upload/download speeds with Firefox and Safari. I have 2 computers on my network which consists of a cable modem connected to a white airport base station with 128 bit WEP encryption in 802.11 b/g compatible mode. The 2 computers are a dual 2.8 ghz MacPro which is wired directly into the Airport base station by Ethernet and an iMac 1.83 Intel core 2 duo. The much faster MacPro only achieves a download speed of 5.5MB/s over its wired connection while the slower iMac achieves 9.8MB/s - very close to the advertised speed over its wireless connection. These are consistent speeds not one offs so I am wondering why the difference? The MacPro is my main machine so I'd like to have the best speed possible on that. What can I try?

Mar 15, 2012

so the other day i opened my computer and it wouldn't connect to the internet. it had been working fine before that and nothing had changed, it just stopped connecting. I have full signal and can connect to the network, but my internet signal on the top bar has an exclamation point and says "Alert: no internet connection." My roommates can both connect with their computers so i dont know the problem! i've looked for solutions on other forums and havet tried deleting "airport" as a source and then re-adding it, deleting the system configuration folder, renewing the DHCP lease, nothing works.
