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

Aug 13, 2009

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.

Intel Mac :: Internet Keeps Disconnecting SL 10.6.8

May 17, 2012

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.

Intel Mac :: Internet Connectivity On More Than 1 Device?

Mar 17, 2012

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?

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.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Internet Disconnecting?

Dec 14, 2008

I'm having a problem with internet access at the moment. I've got a Time Capsule which is connected up to a Draytek Vigor 100 ADSL modem. In the past 4 or 5 days the Internet has been stalling to a halt. I've discovered that if I go into the Airport configuration utility and choose 'Renew DHCP Lease' on the Internet page everything starts working again.

OS X :: Fixing Slow Internet Connectivity With Wireless-N Routers?

Nov 1, 2008

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 V10.5 Leopard :: Mail Has Internet Connectivity But Cannot Connect To Servers?

Mar 23, 2012

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.

Intel Mac :: Internet Crashes On 27 Inch 2011 Model While On All 3 Other Devices Still Have Connectivity?

Mar 16, 2012

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).

Windows On Mac :: Wireless Connectivity In XP Not Above Two Bars

I get great wireless connectivity under Mac OS X, since the wireless base is in the room right next to the MacBook Pro, but under Windows XP Home Edition with the Mac drivers installed, I never get above two bars, and connection drops every 20 minutes or so.

OS X :: Internet Connection Lost Every Few Minutes

Nov 30, 2010

a few days ago I noticed that my Late 2009 Macbook seemed to lose its internet connection every few minutes just for a couple of seconds only to reconnect. I have no idea why this problem suddenly started occurring, I had not not modified any hardware or software. Strangely enough, this happens whether I use Wifi (at work) or Mobile Broadband via USB ( at home) so I don't think it can be blamed on the internet connection. Stranger still, I should probably not be talking of losing my internet connection but of not being able to access the internet: While again being in a few seconds of slump, I checked my Mobile Broadband Manager and it was not disconnected, upstream traffic was occurring! Just the downstream was at zero. I run windows with bootcamp on the same Mac and there the internet works without trouble. I have all the newest updates installed.

MacBook Pro :: How Does The OS Resize/rearrange Windows When Connecting/disconnecting

May 12, 2010

Simple question to you guys with multiple monitor setups:

How does the OS resize/rearrange windows when connecting/disconnecting the Macbook Pro from the larger display? I'd imagine it'd have to do something since the resolution on the larger monitor is much greater than the MB screen.

MacBook :: Internet Stops Working A Few Minutes?

Dec 17, 2009

I have a macbook that is about 2 years old, maybe a little less, and recently it's been giving me trouble. Every time I go online (on firefox or safari), the internet stops working after about 20 minutes. It used to be about every hour but it's more frequent now. To fix it I have to restart. Once I restarted and the internet didn't even work. It's getting to be immensely frustrating since I have to save everything else I'm working on, restart, and then reopen everything. I don't know much about computers but I'm using a wireless that's shared with one other mac and one other pc in the house. Any ideas of what I should do?

MacBook :: 2008 Macbook Internet Connectivity Inturruption?

Jul 24, 2010

Recently I've been having difficulty with some aspects of internet on my macbook. Initially I've found certain sites will not initiate downloads, (download page redirects but fail to initiate, control click - save seems to solve this problem, however remains frustrating) Also more recently I've found that I cannot download the new version of itunes off of apples website (due to the same problem, they don't have a direct link) When I tried to use software update from the menu I was met with a similar problem. Internet is connected and seemingly working fine but apple update fails to run, (Software Update cannot check for updates because of a network problem) network diagnostics fail to determine any problem, after power cycling both modem (dynalink) and wireless router (linksys) and calling isp who claims connection is solid with no problems.

Intel Mac :: Internet Keeps Stopping Works 5 Minutes And Then Stops?

Jun 10, 2012

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?

MacBook :: Limited VGA Resolution?

Mar 7, 2009

I purchased the VGA adapter for my aluminum MacBook, and am not satisfied with the resolution output to my HDTV.

Perhaps I was naive to think a VGA connection would be satisfactory! My problem is that that the resolution just isn't pleasing and I am not able to get a 16X9 aspect ratio to my HDTV.

Do I need to go MiniDVI to HDMI, and will this give me a 16x9 output to my HDTV?

OS X :: Best Way To Distribute Files / Have Limited HD Space?

Jan 3, 2011

Ok, here's what I have:MacBookPro 15"85 GB hard drive2 GB RAM139 GB of photos on the hard driveExternal hard drives:128 GB drive that contains old PC files (including about 30 GB of photos not currently in iPhoto library)500 GB portable WD hard drive for Time Machine backups (188 GB free)1 TB brand new Seagate Expansion desktop hard drive, totally freshThe problem:Finder says I have 1.8 GB of free space on my hard drive. I have to do something about these 139 GB of photos. I access them more than anything but my HD is so clogged that things are not saving well. Even iPhoto library tells me it can't save changes, and I am just trying to delete photos! I am thinking of running my iPhoto Library off of an external hard drive. Do I even have enough memory to transfer it? Should I just upgrade my internal hard drive and use the externals for backups? What would you do at this point? I want to eventually install Photoshop and Lightroom. Just bought Photoshop Elements 9 and hope to use it with iPhoto. How do I put all these hard drives to good use?

PowerPC :: G3 BW & Wireless Card Limited To Mac?

I have a G3 BW, 400mhz, 1gb ram. I would like to add wireless since it's away from a wired connection. Am I limited to the Mac-compatible pci cards? I have panther OS on it and can upgrade to tiger but hear that it runs best in panther so I'll wait. I've seen some drivers that you can buy which will make a select number of non-mac wireless pci cards work, but not really sure how well these function - Thoughts? Experience?. Plus I don't want to sink a ton of money in it, it's running very well now, actually quite well. I hope to spend less than $30 for a used or new wireless b-g pci card if possible. Does anyone have any budget cards that they are using sucessfully? B, G wireless specs are fine, I don't have N.

Finally they have been exposed in the past week, but they claim it is only to bit torrent traffic. This is not the case. I cant video chat for more than a minute or two before my internet gets throttled and the other person cant see me. The same goes for file transfers to a remote server for my graphic design stuff. Does anyone know a work around for this? Maybe changing the outgoing ports for iChat?
