Windows On Mac :: Xp Internet Keeps Disconnecting Every 5 Minutes/limited Or No Connectivity?

I have windows xp sp3 and while playing my game, the internet keeps disconnecting about every 5 minutes. Then a bubble comes up and says, "Limited or no connectivity" and I have no internet. So I have to disconnect and connect again to get another 5 minutes before it does it again. The modem I have is this: Verizon GT704WG Wireless DSL Modem/Router To narrow the problem down I went to another house with another wireless and it worked without any problem there.

Keynote 09 :: Is Transition Delay Limited To Max 10 Minutes
I'm trying to make a self-running presentation with slides and short movies in slides. Some of the movies are a bit more than 10 minutes.

Is there anyway to make the transition delay longer than 600 seconds?

Is my only option to split the movies into pieces and put them on separate slides?

Intel Mac :: Internet Connectivity On More Than 1 Device?
I am starting a new thread.  I was having connectivity to the internet issues earlier.  I have an IPAD an IMAC and a PC.  I had to unplug my router to move it.  Now it seems that I can only get internet access on one device.  Earlier in the day my PC internet worked and the IPAD and IMAC did not.  After shutting down my PC the IMAC began to work. Is there a setting somewhere for multiple devices?

Intel Mac :: Internet Keeps Disconnecting SL 10.6.8
Have an iMac running SL 10.6.8 and every few minutes my internet connection is interrupted. But airport shows connected to my network. I have to open network preferences and it shows airport connected but ISP and Internet will be yellow or red. Then I have to go to the Diagnostics button and Airport will be green. I then hit continue and wait for my network to show up in the list and then rejoin. Then I have internet for a bit until it happens again. All other computers and devices on this network are fine. Must have a corrupted file on this iMac.

Mac Mini :: Connecting To The Internet / Keeps Disconnecting?
My mac mini has problems connecting to the internet it keeps disconnecting from the preferred network. When trying to reconnect, it says there's an error trying to join the network. When it can connect, it's only for a brief period. I bought it a while back and had this problem back then. I stored it away, and only recently dug it out again still having the same problem.

Intel Mac :: Internet Crashes On 27 Inch 2011 Model While On All 3 Other Devices Still Have Connectivity?
I have wireless network run via BT hub. However because of ongoing connectivity issues connect the main machine via the ethernet. I no longer use my Airport extreme. Since I first bought this machine I have had connectivity issues. At first thought it was BT & while initially it was I can now isolate the issues to this specific machine. I find that in the morning the connection has gone down & the only way to get it back is to restart everything. I can however get connected through all my other devices. 

I am using Lion & safari or chrome or firefox! Have regular clearences of my cache.I have to box up the machine & trundle to my nearest Apple store (my 90 days home support is expired).

OS X Leopard :: Internet Connectivity ?
Since downloading a package of Apple updates on 6/10/09 my iMac internet connection has been intermittent with both Safari, Firefox and Mail. If I wait 15, 20 or 30 minutes the connection works. Or, if I restart the iMac the connection returns. Other computers (PCs and Macs) on the same network and routers do not exhibit this problem. The other Macs have not downloaded this recent update. My Network Panel shows good connections at all times.

Windows On Mac :: Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Keeps Disconnecting
I installed Windows 7 on iMac 20 inch. All went smoothly and after lot of trail and errors, was able to recognize my apple wireless keyboard and mouse. All well till here. Now the problem is that these two devices keeps disconnecting very very often. For mouse, atleast i can move around and after few clicks, it starts working, but keyboard just doesn't work at all. I have to switch off the keyboard and then switch it back on to get it working for few more minutes. Is there a way I can resolve this? I've installed Bluetooth drivers from bootcamp 2.1 update for vista.

MacBook Aluminum :: Wifi Connects Without Internet Connectivity?
I have been having problems using all kinds of wi-fi. Be it campus wi-fi, wi-fi at coffee shops, whenever I connect I get in OS X a message that it had to self assign an IP and that there is no internet connectivity. When I connect in Windows it just says there is no internet connectivity. I have to repeatedly connect and disconnect, it can take 10 to 15 minutes to connect.

OS X :: Fixing Slow Internet Connectivity With Wireless-N Routers?
I must admit that this posting is a last resort. However, remarkably, on narrowing the problem it seems it has to do with an unknown default setting on my Mac OS X Leopard on both my MacBook and iMac.

This week I invested in two new Wireless-N routers - Belkin and D-Link - and both fail to perform. The problem manifests itself as follows:

- When my Apple is wirelessly connected to the router, it takes a very long time to pull up any website. And unless I am imagining things, it seems to first pause when the blue progress indicator reaches just beyond "[URL]" each time. It is slow loading beyond this initial pause as well.

- When I change my security from WPA2 to WEP to None, it makes no difference whatsoever.

- When my Apple is connected to the router via ethernet, it performs very well. Each website appears very quickly and as expected i.e. no wireless connection.

- Very surprisingly, when I am using Windows via Boot Camp on my iMac, it performs very well when *wirelessly* connected. This threw me a little. This is what led me to suspect there's a default configuration with my Mac OS X that is causing the problem.

- In light of the above point, I have not yet checked to see whether wireless frequency or channel affect the download speed.

- For 2.5 years I had been using a Netgear Wireless-G router without any problem.

Might anyone know what the problem is? Or at the very least how better to diagnose it?

OS X :: Macbook Pro Keeps Disconnecting From Internet?
I recently bought a Macbook Pro (my first Mac). I'm having a problem whereby it keeps disconnecting (a few times a day) from the internet. When I click on network preferences -> Assist Me -> Diagnostics... the ISP, Internet & Server lights are red. I click continue under airport, select my network and it then says my internet appears to be working which it does until the next time.

Intel Mac :: Keeps Losing Internet Connection Every 5 Minutes Or So?
Why does my Mac keep losing internet connection every 5 minutes - I end up having to turn wifi OFF and ON again each time.

As all other devices in the house connect seamlessly to the wireless router, the problem is only with my MAC desktop.

IMac Intel :: USB Printer Reset Internet Connectivity?
I have a basic iMAC set up - ethernet connection to DSL modem and a Brother printer that can be hooked up using either ethernet or usb. Network settings use DHCP to assign the IP number.

I connected the printer via usb. The iMAc sees it, sets it up and prints to it all OK. I set it up so that it is not shared and not a default printer. When it is turned on I can not access the internet. When I go to the Network preferences pane and renew the DHCP lease, I get connectivity for about a minute and then it dies again. If I restart the computer - sometimes there is connectivity for a minute sometimes not at all. If I turn off the printer - I get connectivity. No need to restart or even renew the DHCP lease. All works normal. When the printer is on, I see nothing added in the network connections pane and it is listed as a local device.

MacBook Pro :: Connected To Wireless Network - No Internet Connectivity Yet?
I have had this MacBook Pro since July of this year and I have had no problems with it up until 2 weeks ago. Before everything worked fine and connectivity worked as it should, but then recently it suddenly had no internet connectivity. What I mean by this is that the MacBook's AirPort says it is connected to my universities wireless network with full signal bars and everything seems normal, but when I open firefox or safari the browser simply says "Firefox is in offline mode" or whatnot but it is actually set to be in online mode and there is simply no connectivity. I have to repeatedly (like 5-10 times) turn AirPort on and off and switch between my universities Public and Secure networks until finally by a random chance the connectivity returns and it works like normal, but as soon as the MacBook goes into sleep mode, the problem returns. It is very frustrating seeing as how it takes around 15 minutes to connect to the internet now. Background Info: Sometimes when I turn off my Airport and turn it back on, the Airport says "No internet connectivity" with an exclamation point over the wireless signal bars, but this only happens 10% of the time while i am trying to turn off and turn on the airport. Also I have noticed as this problem persists, it is getting more and more difficult to get connected to the internet with the random "Turn off, turn ons and random network switching until I get some results". I have done a good amount of research and I am a pretty technically minded guy so it isn't easy for me to come here and ask for help because typically I am the one fixing other people's computers.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Mail Has Internet Connectivity But Cannot Connect To Servers?
I am staying in an RV park and there is WIFI available. To connect to the WIFI you need to agree to a splash screen. The WIFI connects and I can access the internet. Safari can access web pages including iCloud to view and send mail.

The mail program can not send or receive mail through my iCloud account. When I bring up connection doctor it says it has an internet connection but can not connect to the servers. The iCloud account is online. This problem has occured with other park wifi connections.

If I logoff the parks wifi and connect to my iPhone hotspot the mail program works and can send and receive mail.

MacBook Pro :: Disconnecting From Wireless Internet After Use?
My wireless connection cuts off while using the web. I still don't know what causes it but it's getting annoying. When i use the internet (firefox or downloading podcasts from itunes), I would get disconnected from my D-Link DL-254 (up-to-date firmare) 20-40 minutes later. The only way to get the connection back is to turn the airport on and off. I know that it's not just this macbook because i had another macbook (2.4 GHz 13.3") and it did the same thing.

This does not happen to my HP mini or my iPhone or iPod Touch. Just the MB and MBP. I can rule out the possibility that it's another software that I use (unless its firefox) because I started getting disconnected after I updated my MBP for the first time.

Intel Mac :: Internet Keeps Stopping Works 5 Minutes And Then Stops?
Got a Mac OS X Version 10.7.4 last week and first off it was fine the Internet connected perfectly and was the fastest connection I've seen. But this morning I came down and it connected for 5 minutes and then although it appeared to be working (The wifi bars were full) the internet wouldn't search for any sites. All the while my iPod and laptop still connected. I did a clean-up of the Mac but that didn't make a difference. It seems to be able to connect for that first 5 minutes every time I restart the computer, but you can't do anything in 5 minutes. I need to correct this, do you have any idea how?

OS X Leopard :: Won't Work With Internet Connectivity / Conflicting IP Address
I have been experiencing significant internet connection problems on my mac mini. Although at times my connection is ok, the majority of the time I'm suffering from what would best be described as an "intermittent" internet connection. It seems that my internet connection is constantly cutting out for short periods of time before re-establishing itself.

I'm connected to the internet via a wireless network (netgear router). There are also two windows machines (one laptop and one desktop) and a PS3 connected on the same network (also occasionally there is a macbook connected to the network too).

I've been with the same ISP for over a year now and previously had always experienced a good connection, also all the other devices connected on this network seem to have fine connectivity so I doubt there is any problem with my service provider.

It could be a coincidence but the emergence of the problem seems to have conincided with my flatmates purchase of a laptop. When my flatmate first connected his laptop to the internet I received a message on my mac mini stating there was an IP address conflict, although I have not had that message again and I seem to suffer from bad connectivity at all times, not just when my flatmates laptop is turned on! Could these to issues be related?

MacBook Pro :: Internet Connectivity Lost When Using External Hard Drive?
I connect to the internet using an AirPort Express. When I'm at my desk I can normally access the internet. The wifi signal is strong, so I never lose the signal. However, when I plugin an external hard drive (whether desktop or bus-powered), my internet connection will drop. Again, the signal is strong and never fails.

I installed istat menu to monitor the the connection, and as soon as I plug in an external drive, the connection speed drops to 0KB/s... but when I unplug the drive(s), the the connection resumes.

OS X Leopard :: AirPort Extreme Disconnecting From Internet Randomly
I have had this airport extreme (old one shaped like a dome 802.11g) for about 5 years now. Its been working fine until about a couple of months ago it has started to randomly disconnect me and my family from the internet. I know its not my modem or my ISP because if I connect my computer to my modem directly I get internet. I am not sure really what to do. Every time it does this, I have to restart my router and it works again. It does this at least once every day. I bought a time capsule a week ago, thinking that it was time for a new router, but instead it was twice as slow and I couldn't even load a page. I've tried restarting it over and over again.
