PowerPC :: G4 Wireless - No AirPort Express Card?

Oct 21, 2006

I just got a 17" Powerbook G4 1.5 Ghz. My friend that sold it to me said that her wireless always had a really weak signal but in recent time, unless she was in the same room as the router it was really hard to get a decent connection. She said she took it to an Apple store but her Apple care was expired and they said they'd have to send it out for 5-7 days. Today I just tried it out at home, where I normally (as well as everyone else in the house) have full signal from our router, this computer gets a bar or two max.

I was adding in some more RAM to it so I figured I'd take it the rest of the way apart. So, in doing so carefully because I could not find a diagram at all that matched this computer, I found that there is not a Airport Extreme card in the computer at all. Is that right? Is the wireless built in now? (or maybe for that year). Is this a common problem that the signal fades?

PowerPC :: Unable To Communicate With New Airport Express Wireless?

Feb 1, 2007

Has ANYONE had the following problem: Original titanium PowerBook G4, fully up-to-date AirPort software and Mac OS X 10.4.8, which will not communicate with a new AirPort Express wireless router in WPA Personal (neither WPA nor WPA2), but which WILL communicate quite happily with any wireless router, anywhere, including aforementioned nice new AirPort, in WEP? Access control is NOT active.

PowerPC :: Who Stocks G5 (DC And Quad) Airport / BT Wireless Card?

Jan 23, 2007

I want to buy this item:

The bluetooth/airport extreme card for my PCI-e Dualcore 2.0ghz G5. I'm happy to install it myself. However I am leaving to go back to the UK on jan 31st, and sweetwater don't actually stock the item, and it will take a while to get it to me unless they expedite it from Apple and charge an extra $42 or so, which is too much for me. Anyone know who might actually stock the item and be able to send it out quickly?

PowerPC :: How To Access The Airport Card Settings To Get Wireless Connectivity

Mar 4, 2009

I just installed the Airport extreme wireless card on my emac, but I have run into some problems:

1)after installing the card, the mac took a very long time to start up, I tested to make sure it was the card: everytime I started it up without the card, it did the normal thing, but with the card, it took a long time

2)after finally starting up, nowhere can i find where/how to configure the wireless. When I go to configure the network, it has all options, but the airport card option is not usable.

PowerPC :: AirPort Extreme Card On Late 2004 G5 Mac Detects No Wireless Networks

Jul 4, 2010

I recently purchased a refurbished AirPort Extreme Card and AirPort antenna for my late 2004 Power Mac G5. My Mac is running on OS X Version 10.4.11. I properly installed them, since the computer notes the AirPort Extreme card in the "About Mac" menu. There are a couple of wireless networks near my home and the computer doesn't detect any of them. I've checked out previous forum discussions around this issue, tried some suggested troubleshooting to no avail. Can I presume the AirPort Extreme card is defective? It detects absolutely no signal from the other networks around here. Could the WEP password length of our router have anything to do with it? Do I need to download a driver to activate the AirPort Extreme Card? Could upgrading to a different operating system make it work?

Hardware :: Extended Wireless Network - Multiple Airport Express Wireless Setup

May 14, 2009

I'm working in a home/home-office environment right now which was setup by someone else and I've noticed some odd network behavior when moving about the property. Looking at the setup, the relevant portion is: Cable modem - Airport Extreme - 10 port wired switch - 3x Airport Express in different areas of the house. The configuration of each device has the Extreme and all three Express devices set to "create a wireless network" with the network name the same for all four of them. I am not a networking expert but I would have thought that the Extreme should be set to be the "master" in a WDS network and the Express should each be set to participate in that WDS network. If they're all hosting their own wireless network with the same name and the coverage overlaps, how does a PC know which one it's using? Or maybe this doesn't matter. I just know that when we move from one room to another we frequently have to re-select the wireless network to establish connectivity.

Mac Pro :: Wireless Card - Can't Find Networks And Airport Card

Apr 14, 2009

I bought my Mac Pro as a refurb from Apple, but it didn't come with the wireless card built in. This didn't bother me because at my old apartment my computer was near the router so I just wired it up by ethernet. I just moved into a new place and my computer isn't within router distance and I don't want to run a bunch of cable. My boss gave me a card to plug into Apple wifi card spot and OSX found the card and showed some airport info, but it didn't find any networks and if I run the Airport Utility it says it can't find an airport card. So I assume it's not compatible. What are my options? Oh yeah, I found this on ebay. Sound reliable? [URL:....]

OS X :: How Does Wireless Printing Work On Airport Express

Jul 3, 2009

I currently have a cannon MP620 all in one printer, I mainly use this for my PC notebook. If I were to purchase an Airport Express how would I go about printing wirelessly? Would I need to instal any drivers from the printer since it would be a network printer? I'm pretty confused as to how wireless printing works with the Airport Express.

Hardware :: How To Use Airport Express To Extend Wireless

Jul 8, 2009

I am thinking about buying an airport express to extend the wireless coverage in my house.

I have a wireless router, however the signal does not quite reach the other side of the house. At the moment I use some network over mains equipment, like [URL], to connect a desktop up at the other side of the house.

I was wondering if I will be able to connect an airport express up to one of these power line adapters and use it in conjunction with the other wireless.

I have recently purchased a 15.4 MacBook Pro 1.83GHZ 2MB Ram with Intel Core Duo. The machine has a Airport Express Card fitted and I have purchased a 802.11n base station but I can't get it to work! The Base Station light just flashes amber and will not go green. I am simply trying to play my speakers through it wirelessly. The MacBook does not recognise the base station when I scan for Apple Devices.

So question! The wireless card addon for the mac pro plugs into a mini pci-express port. Being on gigabit, I really have no use for it, and there are tons of other solutions for bluetooth. So, could I, for example, put a mini pci-express SSD drive in there or something exciting like that?

Hardware :: Airport Express Wireless Printing With Old HP LaserJet 6P ?

Aug 13, 2009

I've recently acquired an old HP LaserJet 6P printer. I've successfully connected it to my MacBook (10.5.8) using a Parallel-USB Converter Cable and Gimp-Print drivers - it doesn't have a built-in USB port. What I'd like to do now is connect the LaserJet to my Airport Express to allow me to print wirelessly. Has anyone done something similar to this before? Has it worked? I'd like to get advice first so I don't end up wasting hours and banging my head off a wall trying to get this to work.

Hardware :: Airport Express Or Extreme For Wireless Streaming?

Oct 3, 2010

I'm having a hard time deciding what router to buy. I like the extreme router but it's a bit pricy. Im using comcast 12mpbs per second speeds. Would the apple airport express be good enough for streaming videos and movies? There will be three laptop users. At most, two at any given time I think.

Would the express be good enough or do I have to get the extreme to stream video and movies? (YouTube, age of empires gaming, apple tv, netflix)

Hardware :: Using 3G/HSDPA 'wireless Router' And Airport Express?

Oct 17, 2010

I've moved out to the middle of nowhere, and there's no phone line. However i do have a very fast 3G/HSDPA wireless router on the 'Three' network, and have been impressed by its speed - i was downloading at 285kb/sec just now! Only issue is that there's a 15gb/month limit on data, but it's the most i could get.

Anyway, it's not a USB dongle, it's actually a tiny wireless router and more than 1 person can be connected with no problems. It's a Huawei E585 Wireless Modem.Thing is, I still want to use my Airport Express (802.11n) to stream from different machines to my hifi.How should i go about this? If i connect the Airport Express to the 'Three' router (which is b/g speed) and use that normally, would it work properly do you think? Does anyone have a set up like this, or has tried it

I don't have my Airport Express with me as it's with a friend, so can't just go and try it myself. Obviously don't want to have to put a computer onto a different network to be able to use 'Airtunes'.

MacBook Air :: Adding MBA To Wireless Airport Express As A Second Computer?

Jan 26, 2009

I have a problem I've been working on for over an hour.

I have a uni MBP that has wireless internet and printing through an airport express (just internet and printing, not using Airtunes feature).

I bought a MBA last night and am trying to get it to work as well. It works just fine as far as wireless internet, but the wireless printing simply will not work. I have the printer listed in my MBA and all airport express utility settings seem to be A-OK, it just will not print wirelessly from the MBA. The printer queue just gives me the old Error 300: The printer does not respond.

Hardware :: Using AirPort Express Station As Wireless Router?

Mar 12, 2009

I live in a small apartment, so I never set up a wireless network, because, well I don't need to. However, lately I've been interested in trying some things out with my iphone to see how they work (the remote application mainly), but don't really have the money or need to go out and buy a wireless router. I was curious if there was any way to use my Airport Express Station as a wireless router? Someone told me it was possible, but after much googling, I didn't find much.

Hardware :: AirPort Express Can Work As Wireless Extender

Aug 21, 2009

So I just bought a new revision Airport Express, so from reading I've learned that the AE can act as a bridge/wireless extender for my AEBS (dual-band), my question is, can it only do either N-5ghz or G2.4ghz, and not both at the same time? Also can anyone give me some ideas on Real Life range I should expect to get with it? If I can in fact only do one band, I'll be doing the G band as N pretty much covers everywhere but G isn't so good at penetrating the walls it seems.

Hardware :: Airport Express As Wireless Extender For D-Link DIR-655?

Mar 30, 2010

I am a Windows user at the moment and plan to get a MBP in a few months. I am currently using a D-Link DIR-655 router. My house is a 2 story plus basement, and the D-link pretty much needs to be in the basement. We get excellent wifi reception in much of the house, but it is very spotty on the 2nd floor (an open to the first floor loft) and on the end of the first floor of the house opposite the router.

I like the idea of being able to use AirTunes, so I was thinking of buying an Airport Express as an extender to get usable reception throughout the house. I figure eventually, I may replace the D-Link with an Airport Extreme.

So can I do this wirelessly or do I have to wire the Express to the D-Link? Doing so would involve making holes in things that I don't want to make holes in, so I will put up with a spotty wifi network rather than getting an extender. Our house is a log home with hardwood floors and wood walls and ceilings throughout, so it is not as easy as patching some drywall if we decide to get rid of the wire/hole someday.

I am not a power user, not a gamer and if I want to download huge files, I can do so on the laptop in the basement. I just want a decent wireless connection throughout the house, and would like the ability to stream iTunes.

And if the Airport cannot be a repeater for the D-Link, what about the reverse, with the Airport as the base and the D-Link as the repeater?

Hardware :: Airport Express Wireless Networking - Connected To DSL Modem?

Jan 1, 2009

A friend of mine has the following situation: In the living room he has a stereo hooked up to a single Airport Express (the only wireless router in the house.) In the sunroom he has an iMac Core 2 Duo running the latest version of Tiger hooked up directly to a DSL modem. Itunes recognizes this Airport express and successfully streams music to it. WiFi devices connect to this network but won't connect to the internet even though internet sharing is activated under the iMac's system preferences. Are there some tweaks in the settings that will make this work or does he absolutely need another Airport Express connected to the DSL modem?

Hardware :: AEBS To Capture Wireless With An Airport Express To Xbox 360?

May 7, 2009

I searched the forums but i couldn't find a specific answer to this question... I'm a kinda/non-tech savy girl who loves tech stuff but needs help sometimes

So I am interested in getting an airport express so I can capture the wireless from my netgear router and then connect my xbox 360 to the ethernet port to use the internet... I would also like to connect my desktop PC to the ethernet port to use the internet because I use my Macbook Pro for internet use. Since my desktop doesn't have a wireless card I won't have to buy an adapter for it if i use the airport express. I also want to use the airport express to connect to my AV receiver.

Basically in my room I have a desktop PC, xbox 360, AV receiver, and a tv. The reason I ask about the requirement to have an airport extreme base station was because it seemed like most of the posts on this topic said you need to enable "Allow this network to be extended" and i don't think my netgear router has this option, but i dont see why it would need it...

In my mind I would expect the airport express to be able to connect to my wireless network after i enter in the password, and then be able to connect my xbox or pc to the ethernet port...
