OS X :: Setting Up Internet - Cannot Find IP Address

Apr 16, 2010

I just found an old mac in my room, I think it is a power mac g4, it is running OS X 10.3. I am trying to get it connected to the internet using a cable straight from it to my router (netcomm), the same way i do with my other mac. However, no matter how many different variations i use of my various settings, it wont connect. I have come down to needing a subnet mask, IP address, and router address.

I am almost certain i have the subnet mask and router addie correct, but there seems to be no way for me to find the g4's IP. I have been in system preferences, but all the 'IP' bits are just blank and unclickable. I don't know if it makes a difference, but the G4 was connected to the internet in the past before we upgraded, so it should have an IP somewhere, right?

Hardware :: Time Capsule - Setting Up Internet Connection

Nov 10, 2010

I recently got a new time capsule but I have difficulties setting up the internet connection. The time capsule is connected to our WAN using a cable in my office. The computers in our organization are authenticated using their MAC address. So, I have to add the MAC address of the time capsule to make it connected to the internet. I want to connect the TC to our WAN using a cable, then I want to connect my MacBook using a wireless connection to the TC.

When I config the TC using the NAT mode (Share a public IP address), I can use the internet but I get a double NAT error and TC's LED is yellow. When I config the TC using the Bridge Mode, the led goes green. Anyway, if I connect my MacBook using wireless I cannot reach the internet. I get no error in this case so I don't know what is happening inside the TC. Interestingly, if I connect the MacBook to the TC using an ethernet cable, it works perfectly! I have added all the MAC addresses of the wired and wireless interfaces to the list of my computers.

OS X :: Setting Up My New MBP When I Already Have A SSD?

Jan 5, 2011

I'm pretty Mac savvy but I started thinking about what I'm gonna do when I get my new MBP in a few days and I have a question.

I currently have an older MB that I recently put a 256 SSD in (knowing that I would soon transfer it to a new machine)... I have no need for a fresh start or anything, I would like to keep all my software/plug-ins authorized and my prefs the same and all that. So I think that I could just transfer my SSD into the MBP before I even turn it on, right? ... But my issue is this... If I do just put my current drive in the new MBP will it recognize that it's a new machine and know to go through all the registration process? Or, should I start it up out of the box for registration and warranty purposes, then install the SSD?

I'm sorry if i'm not making any sense... wasn't really sure how to phrase this question...

OS X :: Setting Up My HP All-in-one?

May 31, 2010

so after doing some searching on here I'm not really finding anything specific enough.

I basically need a dummy walk-through on this. I have an older HP 5510v all-in-one. It is connected to my HP desktop in another room. I would like to install it on my Macbook and iMac wirelessly. I do not have the installation disc, though i did go to HP's site and downloaded and installed the OS X 10.6 driver on my iMac.

This is where my lack of intelligence on the matter shines through... what the heck do i do now? lol

I have a wireless network in my house, though I've never printed wirelessly and don't think my printer is on the network... I really have never set a printer up for anything like that. I really like my old 5510 though been a great printer.

IMac :: Setting Up My SSD?

Sep 22, 2010

I'm going to install a 120gb SSD in my 27" iMac core i7. Currently I have a 2TB Hitatchi drive installed. I would like to install OSX as well as all my apps on the SSD and then keep all my user files on the 2TB drive. I'm trying to figure out the best way to get this set up once I install the SSD.

Right now I have all data, apps and OSX on the 2TB drive. Here's what I'd like to do. Once I install my SSD I'm going to do a fresh install of OSX and my apps. Then I'd like to remove OSX and apps from my 2TB drive and only keep my user files on it. My questions are ...

1. What's the best way to remove OSX from my 2TB drive? Do I have to erase the disc and then load all my user files once its been erased.

2. Also, is it ok if I keep OSX and all my apps on the 2B drive as well as my user files but still boot from the SSD? I would only be accessing my user files on the 2TB drive but wonder if I can still keep the OS and apps installed at the same time. Assuming I could but it would kind of be a waste of space, right?

3. Once I get both SSD and 2TB drive set up how I want them, I need to regularly back both of them up using CCC. I have a 3TB external drive that I backup to. Will I need to create 2 partitions on it, one for the SSD and one for the 2TB? I would like the SSD partition to be bootable incase the drive ever fails I wont miss a beat. I'm assuming to back both of them up I would need to create separate partitions on my external drive, one for the SSD and one for the 2TB.

OS X :: Setting Up A Mac Network?

Apr 13, 2009

I'm a bit new to the whole Mac scene. I'm trying to figure out how to set up a network for my office, and I have a few questions.

1. Can I have my modem plug into a Time Capsule and use that as a router, or do I need an airport? This relates to question 2.

2. I want to have a server to store all of my data. 1TB will be plenty. Do I need to buy an XServe, or can I just buy a 1TB Time Capsule?

Basically, I want to know if I can use a Time Capsule as both a router and a server. I will have 6 computers in my office using this wireless internet. Would I be better off buying an Airport Extreme and an Xserve? What does an Xserve offer that a Time Capsule does not?

OS X :: Setting Up Mac Pro G4 As Server

Dec 3, 2009

I have an old 2x 1Ghz G4 Mac Pro. I'd like to set it up as a server, if that is even worth the time. But, before I do that, I have a couple of questions:

1) Would it be superior in any way to my linux box running netatalk?
2) Would it allow me to do networked Time Machine backups?
3) Can I do it with my family pack of Lepoard or Tiger?

OS X :: Setting Up Mail On MBP?

Jun 22, 2010

I have a few questions about mail on my MBP and setting it up...

First of all, it has automatically selected POP3, how does this work? If I delete an e-mail on my MBP, will it delete it from the server (I am using hotmail)

Can I have more than one account on Mail and will I be able to switch between accounts easily?

I am getting an iPhone 4, on which I will also be setting up mail, will this cause any conflict?

Also, what is better, POP3 or IMAP?

How often does it sync?

MacBook Pro :: Setting Up An SSD On A MBP?

Aug 5, 2010

I changed the 7200rpm hard drive in my MBP for an SSD drive, but I don't think that the computer or the OS is initially accessing it correctly.

The time between turning on the power button and seeing the apple logo is about 15 seconds, which is worse than it was with the old drive in. That was about 5 seconds.

Initially, the time with the SSD was 45 seconds, but after doing a reset pram and the SMC and that helped to cut it down to 15 seconds.
These fixes lead me to think that there is something at the basic bios or OS level that may be interfering with the quick startup.

Everything after that point is a lot faster with the SSD, including the rest of the startup and the loading of applications, but there is something going on at the initial startup that causes the process to delay.

MacBook :: Using Default Cd/dvd-rom Setting?

Jan 3, 2011

Does anyone know how to change the default cd/dvd-rom from the internal drive to an external drive on a Macbook OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger)? If not permanently, then for the time my computer is on (e.g., a button at start up)

My internal drive does not work and I want to install Windows XP on Parallels but it keeps looking for the cd on the internal drive. I tried making an .iso image of it and telling it where it is, but it still keeps looking for the internal cd drive.

OS X :: Setting Up Users For First Time?

Nov 6, 2008

I am setting up a new iMac for my parents and since I'm a noob to macs myself (had one for only a few months now) I was wondering what's the best way to set up user accounts. I need to create two accounts so ma/pa can log in and access their own settings, look and feel etc. They are moving from windows XP where they had their own user profiles (dad would leave his desktop littered with icons while mom kept hers nice and clean) so I need to keep two profiles otherwise this would confuse them. I guess my most important questions are:

1. Should I create a separate admin account first when setting up the iMac then create the addition two accounts, or just create two with one of them being an admin. I intend to put something like LogMeIn on there so I can remote in to do any maintenance for them, install apps etc.

2. Dad uses AOL mail and Mom uses Yahoo. I would like to setup Mail so that they can access their emails without using the web mail apps. Question: When the mail accounts are setup are they only seen when logged in under each user profile? In other words, will Dad only see his email in Mail then when Mom logs in she'll see her email etc. or will they both see each other's mail?

OS X :: Setting Up An External Harddrive?

Mar 23, 2009

I am not very computer savvy, and new to your community here. (also I apologize if this is posted in the wrong forum. this one seemed the most logical, but I wasn't sure.)

Just bought an external harddrive for my MacBook, and my hope was to move my itunes library, photos, and a few essential documents to the external.

what is the easiest way to do this?

Also, after I have everything backed up, I was planning on restoring the computer to factory settings, and enjoy it being "like new" with all my content on harddrive. If I did this, would I still be able to seamless access all the stuff on the external, such as my itunes library? How would this work? Is it even a good idea to restore the computer?

MacBook :: Fan Control - Why Always +100 RPM From Setting

May 23, 2009

The actual Base Speed that results is always 100 RPM higher than the Base Speed I set in Fan Control. Now, this isn't hard to workaround, but I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing such behavior.I like to keep the MB at around 1200 RPM when I am on battery power in the cafe. It saves a lot of power, and there is a negligible increase in temperature (on the order of 3-5 degrees F), and Fan Control has been great for that.

OS X :: Setting Up A Wired Network?

Jun 14, 2009

So I got a new Macbook about 3 months, and I've been sitting on a couch in the same room with the wireless router. However I'm getting a bit sick of having to use a couch as my desk and I want to get internet in my room.

Our house, is reasonbly new, and I know that all the phone wires are cat5 (I'm 100% sure), so I was thinking of setting up a wired network.

Since our house is made up of concrete and steel beams, the wireless signal isn't that great in our house. We have a D-Link G604T which is a piece of junk so I will get a new router in the near future.

So currently, we have some sort of filter in the room where the router is, so we can plug in the router without having to worry about putting filters on all of our telephone lines.

However, if I were to put internet in through the same line, I'm guessing I would have to get some filters.

Hopefully what I want to do is get a phone jack to Ethernet converter and put internet directly into the wall and hopefully I will get internet in all of the phone jacks. I could probably take the cable out and put a Ethernet end straight on the cable.

I was also thinking If I get a airport extreme of some other gigabit router, I would technically get less latency and would retain my internet speeds even though I would getting internet through a long line of cables.
