Software :: Airport Stopped Working - Says Its Working?
May 29, 2008
I have been connecting wirelessly to the same router for about 4 months now, using DHCP, and having the settings on the automatic connection. I left the computer on, but closed, so sleeping, for about two days. When i opened it, the battery did not yet run out but the internet has not connected since.
I have full connection in internet connect to my network. Status says connected. If I have the IPv4 using DHCP, the status says that i am connected but my computer have a self-assigned IP adress. When I put in the IP manually, the Network setting give me a green light on airport and says that I am connected to the network thru airport. Needless to say, no browsers (Firefox, Safari, Netscape, or Internet Explorer) have been able to connect to the internet.
I have tried running Disk Utility for any errors, but there have been no changes.
1.67 GHz PowerPC
512 DDR SDRAM
I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...
Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...
Last week, my airport connection suddenly stopped working (and I mean JUST as I was working on it, it started failing). It would connect to the network fine, but it could not communicate with the router through DHCP and even with a static IP, it could not transfer any network data. I put in my brother's working airport card, and it worked, so I ordered a refurbished airport card from ifixit.com. I put that in today, and it is showing the same symptoms of my old card. I don't have my brother's PowerBook to test his card again, so I don't know what to do.
I have a Mac/Windows home network with two airport extreme base stations. One is connected to my dsl modem. The other is used wirelessly to extend the network, and I have a Xerox Phaser 5500 connected to one of its lan ports. Until recently, all computers, connected wirelessly could share the internet connection and print to the Phaser. Due to a power failure, I had to reset both the Airport base stations. I can still connect to the internet, however I can not print from any of the computers.
I've had my macbook pro for 4 years now with out any problems. However, a few weeks ago my airport stopped connecting for no reason. I have tried to reconnect through the network settings but it still won't work. However, if I am in the same room as my router then the airport will connect wirelessly to the internet. But as soon as I leave the room my internet signal will go out. I know its not a problem with my router because all the other computers in my house can recieve signal anywhere in the house.
during SW to my mini-mac wireless key board the keyboard stop responding. now i have left without an ability to work with my wireless keyboard. is there any why to reset the keyboard to default setting so it will come to live again..
My headphone jack was working just fine until this morning when I opened my computer. It's plugged in, but the sound keeps going through the head speakers. I have done the system preference check to make sure it is not muted.
I was installing X-Plane 9 on my fairly new Mac Pro when it stopped working. I switched disks and nothing happened, the drive just won't spin up. I have tried a number of different CDs and DVDs and none will spin up. I can verify that by looking at the position of the disk when I put it in and take it out, it never moves.I have tried the usual reboot and resetting the PRAM. (I did the command option o r and un-plugged with power button for 5 seconds)I tried calling Apple care 2 times and the message I get is, the call center is closed. That's it, they don't even tell what hours they *ARE* open.
Recently my 2 month old (+/-) rev B MBA USB stopped working. When I plug in a thumb drive, DVD drive or anything, the power light on the usb peripheral comes on, but the drive does not mount. I am running SL, and until last week I had no issue.
a few days ago, (after reseting my computer with time machine) my Quick Look stoped working. all that hapens when i hit the space bar (or any other way of opinging quicklook) is the big grey box with nothing in it. I can still see the prevews of the items with coverflow.
When i checked console i got this message every time i trie to open a file " Finder: [QL] Display bundle <QLGenericDisplayBundle: 0x11638e120> did not return a layer although it was required to because it did not return a view either."
My MBP's (October 2007) screen just stopped working. I don't know what's up. It's not the backlight, because I've turned my backlight off before and you can still see the screen faintly, but I can't see anything. I ran to Target to buy an external monitor - but they were out, so I bought a TV (Sylvania lc195slx) in hopes of that working. Well, it didn't work. I am currently using a newer MBP (September 2009) borrowed for a few minutes from a friend to write this and test the TV.
Her MBP was able to hook up to the TV just fine. So now I'm wondering if there is a video driver error or something. This is really bad timing, as I have to do a presentation on Tuesday for a final and I'm still working on finding the information. Anyway, if you can offer any advice to get the screen and/or tv working, that would be great! And I'm using my DVI to VGA adapter to plug my computer into the tv.
Safari on my iMac (10.7.4) has been acting up recently. Very slow to begin loading my opening Tabs and CPU intensive. Today it has just stopped working at all. It just sits there with high CPU use and nothing loads into my opening tabs. I've tried Google Chrome and it works fine with the same tabs. Tried downloading the latest Safari and installed it, but it didn't help. Don't know what to do next. I've seen all the warnings about not deleting Safari. Is there any alternative to reloading Lion? Can't I just delete Safari from Terminal and then reinstall from my Safari download and import my exported Bookmarks?
Info: iMac 20" Aluminium and Mac Pro 2008, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Suddenly command-W has stopped working on my system (OS X 10.6.4, iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo). Instead of closing the current window or browser tab, it takes me to the Finder. I have tried rebooting, but it did not fix it.
I have a WD 2 TB My Book Home Edition external hard drive, I have had it for about a year... it worked fine I had a little over 1 TB of data on the hard drive and after coming home from vacation when I reconnected my hard drive it would not mount. The message was "Hard disk not recognized by this computer" so I properly disconnected the hard drive and replugged it in and reconnected to iMac and still same thing. I have tried everything in the book it feels like and nothing is working, and of course I did not have all the info backup with time machine (I REGRET and beat myself up for not) so I need to recover the data and I am not sure what to do. I did run Data Rescue 3 and it said that there was nothing on the hard drive to recover. Of course I am panicking and I have been told to send it off for Data recovery but that is going to cost up to 2,000 and I just want to make sure that this is my last resort or is it hopeless and should I just seek counseling for all the lost pictures of my kiddos...LOL I did try opening the case and inserting hard drive directly in a hard drive docking station
Not sure why, but all of a sudden have no sound effects. When I go to System Preferences all the alert sound effect choices are grayed out. When press the volume buttons, can't adjust settings and there's a strike-out symbol underneath the bars.
I tried backing up my MBP using Time Machine but my MyBook 500GB doesnt want to work. The light on the front works but when i connect it nothing happens. Nothing shows up on my MBP anymore. It used to work fine.
I have a aluminum iMac, which has been working fine until now. A couple of hours ago I restarted it and went and did something else for a couple of hours. I then came back to find my keyboard and mouse not working, I double checked and they were both plugged in fine (I use the aluminum apple keyboard and a kensington mouse). I restarted my computer but it still did not fix the problem (I was still stuck at the login screen). I thought it might be the USB, so I plugged my iPod in, and it did not charge. While my iPod was still connected to my computer I restarted it again and as soon as the screen turned grey my iPod started charging and my mouse worked (the light turned on), but only until the grey apple logo appeared and it then stopped working again. I have tried every USB slot and none of them work. I'm pretty sure my computer was completely updated as well.
I have had my 24" 2.8GHz iMac from November 2007 flawless until today, 1 of 3 usb ports on the back simply decided to stop working. my keyboard, when plugged in, does not work, however, I usually use this one port with my iPod, when I plug my iPod in, it turns on, says its connected, then ejects automatically, though in the other ports...it works fine in the other ports.
I have a Bamboo tablet and a wireless mighty mouse. The mouse worked for little while but then just stopped working. It still moves but I cant click on some things and it doesnt change the pointer when i go over text for example. Any one know why?
A set of websites (all with the same beginning in their address) all stopped working from my computer. It works on other people's computers, and I can go to any other webpage just fine, but this one site just won't load. It won't load whether I'm using Firefox, Safari, or whatever. I tried repairing permissions, emptying the cache, deleting cookies, and turning the computer on and off. Still no luck, but it's just for those sites (and just my computer, as my neighbor can see the sites fine).
I've had a Santa Rosa MBP for more than a year now and recently, after working intermittently, the iSight stopped working. It doesn't show up in the System Profiler nor in Boot Camp. After extensive research, I've done the following:
- Reset the SMC - Zap the PRAM and NVRAM - Reboot in Safe Mode - Remove the battery and unplug for 2 min - Checked iSight physical connection on bezel
I've tried everything I could. Now I'm wondering if it's the logic board that is causing this problematic iSight. And if so, will the logic board continue to fail until it's obsolete? What other symptoms are there of a failing logic board (other than display issues)?
On one of the office computers (G4 Mirrored Door running OS X 10.3.9), the CS2 Illustrator has stopped working. It starts the load process, but then gives the error message "Missing Required Plugins: BRS Pencil Tool/ExpandS."
The Adobe suggestions for fixing the problem are: 1. Delete the CS2 Illustrator Settings file and the com.adobe.illustrator.plist file and restarting. 2. Restarting Illustrator under a different User account.
I have tried both of these with no success. This seems a common enough problem, yet scouring the web yielded only those two options (PC users were able to identify a corrupt/missing font that caused the problem on those machines).
