Software :: How To Check Who Used My Wireless Network

Jul 2, 2008

I have an airport extreme and created a wpa2 protected network. However, when I see my download traffic with my provider, I'm under the impression that it rises way too fast compared too what I do on the net... So I'm wondering if there's a way or a tool that allows me to see how many pc's have logged into my network. Surely my airport must store this data somewhere?

Hardware :: Time Capsule Join Wireless Network/Will All Traffic Go Mac Wireless Router

Jan 5, 2011

I have just got my 1Tb time capsule and there are a lot of confusing descriptions of how to connect it.

At the moment I have just selected "join existing wireless network" which is a ADSL 2.4ghz G Router that came with my internet package (Thompson TG585 v7).

Does this mean that all traffic goes via the ADSL Router and that I will not be using the 5ghz band when I back up so that all the data will follow a path like this and have slow data rates? :

MAC --2.4ghz--> ADSL Router --2.4ghz--> TC

or will I be communicating directly with the TC at 5ghz for backups and data transfer and 2.4ghz with the ADSL router for internet like this? :

MAC --5ghz--> TC
ADSL Router --2.4ghz--> MAC

If this is not a good setup, what setup would allow me to get the full speed to the time capsule and be connected to the internet.

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Possible To Use Mac's Ethernet Port To Extend Wireless Network To A Non-wireless Device?

May 3, 2012

OK, I asked this question previously, but not quite succinct enough, I think. I have a Pioneer home theater receiver that is network capable, but not wireless capable. I want to get this thing on my home network without having to purchase another device as my Mini resides no more than 36" away from it.So far, I have been able to get the receiver to connect to the internet through Internet Sharing on the Mini, but it remains blind to, and invisible to my wireless network. I simply want to connect the receiver to my Mini via ethernet cable and have it see and be seen on my wireless network. url...

OS X :: Auto-mount A Network Drive After Connecting To A Wireless Network?

Sep 22, 2010

I am trying to figure out how to automatically connect a MacBook to a network drive after connecting to the wireless network that the drive is connected to.

Here is the situation:

I back-up my wife's MacBook via Time Machine to an external hard drive that is connected to my Apple desktop. It works great! I even have her system setup to automatically mount the drive upon log-in. Unfortunately, after leaving our wireless signal and then coming back the time machine drive isn't automatically mounted since she isn't "logging back-in". Is there an automator script that can be built to automatically connect to drive X after connecting to wireless network Z?

MacBook Pro :: Check My Wireless Card?

Jun 12, 2012

My ISP went belly up 2 days ago and once I hardwired my Macbook pro into my modem I was off and running again. However, I have been having trouble connecting to the Internet for the last couple of days wirelessly. I have shut everything down and rebooted, several times, but as soon as I turn on my wireless I loose my connection to the Internet. I have a technician coming to check my Optus modem tomorrow. To complicate the matter, when I arrived at work today the same thing happened with my computer and the connection to the Internet. My airport utility says I am not connected to the Internet where as every other computer at work is.

Now with an Ethernet cable connected I am able to connect to the Internet.From this I deduce there may be something wrong the wireless card in my own Macbook pro. How do I check this out and what steps can I take to remedy the situation?

Info:MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

OS X :: Printing On A Wireless Network?

Mar 17, 2009

I bought my new (and first) unibody macbook 2 weeks ago. I'm loving everything about it

I was just wondering if the following is possible.

So I have a new macbook and a personal PC, both connected to a wireless internet network (with a D-Link Router).

There's a printer connected to my PC and I would like to know if it was possible to acces my PC through the internet and print files on it from my Macbook.

I hope I explained it good enough?

OS X :: How Can I Logging Into Wireless Network?

Mar 7, 2009

I have a white MacBook running OSX 10.5.6, and I have trouble connecting to wireless networks that require you to login.Example: I'm in my school's library, I open up my macbook, connect to the wireless network, open up firefox, attempt to go to a web page, and get a message that says that I am offline instead of being directed to the wireless log-in page. This happens at every wireless location that requires you to login/buy a pass to access the internet. The only work around that I've found is to reboot my computer. I think the issue involves my computer retrieving the wireless network's DNS address. Is there a way I can force my computer to pull down the DNS address? I've tried manually entering the school's DNS IPs, but it doesn't seem to work all the time.

OS X :: Getting Two Macs On Wireless Network

Jun 2, 2009

I am using a dsl wireless router to create a home network (damned if im gonna pay 2 bills for a japanese cable router) every time I connect, the internet service provider intercepts my link and forces me to log in, when I try to log in on another computer it does the same thing, but I can only log in one computer at a time on the same user id.

Is there a way to split the connection from my wireless router to each mac without the service provider recognizing it is two separate machines? This is legit, if I shell out the 2 bills for their wireless router I can log two machines in, so its not like im stealing service here, just trying to get my wife and I on at the same time without having to buy new hardware that is redundant.

OS X :: Extending Wireless Network?

Sep 8, 2009

I currently use a time capsule for wifi at home. It's located in my basement. The problem is the signal strength on the second floor isn't the greatest. I was wondering if I could extend the network by running a cable from the time capsule to the second floor and plug it into an airport express. Is this setup referred to as a "bridge"?

OS X :: Mac Laptop Not Seeing PC Over Wireless Network

Oct 10, 2009

Back at my parents house, my dad had an older Linksys Wireless G router where I would be able to see all of the other WinXP computers on the network along with their associated shared folders/drives/peripherals in the 'shared' tab on Finder's left side navigation pane. Since it's old, and my father doesn't fix what isn't broken, he doesn't remember how he set that up.

I'm looking to replicate this with my WinXP desktop and early 2008 MBP. I have a WRT310N Linksys router and WinXP SP 3. I've tried nearly everything, but the ease and simplicity of my dad's set up required nothing on the Mac side, whereas I'm seeing a lot of network configuration for most other methods.

On a side note, I'm hoping this will help me wirelessly connect an external HDD so that I can back up my MBP without connecting my USB Exteranal HDD to it ever night.

Hardware :: PC Won't Recognize Wireless Network?

Jun 4, 2009

I upgraded my 802.11b router to an Airport Extreme. My MacPro is connected via LAN. My Macbook has a successful wireless connection to my network.

My problem: I want my Dell on Windows XP to have a wireless connection as well. The PC is still looking for the old router: Dell Trumobile 1180. I am still using the Trumobile 1180 wireless adapter to find my new network.

The wireless connection is excellent; however the Dell is not recognizing my new network.

Hardware :: Printing From My Wireless Network

Jan 21, 2009

I'm trying to get used my first iMac, and I'm having a bit of trouble printing from my wireless network. I have an HP Officejet 6210 that I have been using for the last couple of years with my Windows computer. I'm trying to print off of that through my network, but I keep getting this error

"There is a problem communicating with the printer. Make sure the printer is powered on and connected to the computer. Delete or stop the job and try again."

I have printer sharing turned on through my Windows computer since the printer is connected directly through my windows computer. My other Windows computer that I have at the house can print through the network, but I'm having problems doing so with my iMac. I have the right driver selected through system preferences/print & fax, but it just won't print.

OS X :: How Do I Share Between Two Macs On The Same Wireless Network?

Mar 4, 2009

This is probably very basic but I don't know how to do it.I have an iMac (2007) running Leopard. I have an iBook (2004) running Tiger. They both share my home wireless network.

How can I best share documents between them? Eg how can I browse the hard drive of each machine from the other- ideally without entering passwords etc every time?

Additionally, the iMac is connected to the printer (because it is also a scanner); can the iBook share the printer too?
