Unable to move files from my mac to a external mac formatted usb storage drive

I believe the Belkin N750 is not compatible with Mac-formatted drives. I run Macs and while my N750 will see the drive, it is treated as read-only. Try reformatting in FAT-16, FAT-32 or NTFS.

I have Comcast high speed internet, and recently purchased a Linksys model WRT160N V3 wireless broadband router to allow me WiFi access throughout my home. I have a 2008 Apple MacBook (13") that I'm...

I had issues as well until I changed my router I also went with the linksys router and changed out to D-Link wireless router. I understand that who wants to pay the extra for their wireless router. It is not much more to get one of theirs that is already configured for comcasts dynamic IP address's. This is the fast way to fix the issue. However in any case some routers do not work with comcast they should you would think?
Unplug everything and start from scratch. Do not hook anything up at once. Start with the Comcast modem and plug in the R-45 cable into the router first. Then start the computer up again and the router. Now plug in one computer at a time. Wait for it to configure by checking the Internet on the Mac book first. You will need to make sure that the Mac-book is configured and working first. The Mac-book should be WiFi ready and you should be able to log in to it. Comcast is a dynamic IP service it will find the Mac-book give it some time to search for it. Once this is working the internet on the Mac-book then do the rest of them power them on insert the compatible WiFi connectors that will work with your router. Then one by one do them all until they are working.
Worst case scenario would be to either purchase a D-Link router that does work with comcast this is what I have. My phones also started working as well. After doing this I also researched the comcast pages to find the compatible routers that will work for you. Or get their wireless router to finish this project. I know it is not the answer you are looking for but it is what I did to resolve my issue which was a true pain in the buns. Thanks for using FixYa! John

I recently got a Mac desktop and my Linksys router disk will not open up. Do I need a router that is made for Macs or is there a way to configure the Linksys?

Hi, You are correct. The CD is not compatible with Mac. What you have to do is Configuring the Router Manually using the Web Based Configuration panel.
How to:
  1. Open your Web Browser
  2. Type in the Address Bar and hit Enter
  3. If you have changed the address somehow you have to enter that (Router's IP - Default Gateway)
  4. Here is a small guide to Fine your routers IP address in case of that you are unable to access
  5. Enter the user name (default user name is blank- means no user name. Just leave it blank), Default password is admin.
  6. Now you can configure the Router using the Menus.
  7. Make sure that you have Saved your settings before Exit the Web Based Setup.
  8. Make sure that you have changed the Default Password.
  • If you can’t access the router’s web-based setup page, please check the following: cable connections, router’s LEDs, IP address, and connectivity.
  • Connecting Devices Together
  • Ensure that you have an Active Internet Connection and connect the modem to the router’s Internet port and the Mac to any of the four Ethernet ports.
  • Checking the Router’s LEDs
  • After connecting your modem and Mac to the router, check the lights on the front panel of the router.
  • Checking the Router’s IP Address
  • To find a Linksys router’s Local IP address, you have to check the IP settings of the Mac
  • Checking the Mac’s Connectivity with the Router
  • Ensure that the Mac is properly connected to the router.
You can download the Manuals from here to learn how to do Advanced, Customized Configurations.
Note: Please select the appropriate Hardware Version.
Thanks for contacting Fixya! Feel free to ask any questions if you face trouble with the setup. Please rate the answer as well!

I have a linksys WRT54g router set up to a desktop. I have 3 laptops on wireless - 2 laptops connect to the network just fine - but the 3rd laptop connects with limited connectivity. What can I do to get...

double check that your router is not broadcasting in only G, make it reverse compatible. There is a chance that the other laptop may not be G compatible. Also check the security key and make sure it is correct. If your blocking connections by MAC address make sure the MAC of the non functioning computer is added. You may want to delete the current connection settings from the laptop and restart with a fresh wireless connection. I hope this helps. Good luck

I have linksys wireless-G 2.4Ghz broadband router connected to a pc. My wife bought a MAC and wants to get rid of the PC. Is the router compatible with a MAC? If so how do I download the software to set it...

Hi! Absolutely, the Router is OS independent. All you need is a computer with a properly configured Ethernet LAN adapter and a web browser to configure the Router. Any platform that supports Ethernet & TCP/IP is compatible with the router. You may need to provide additional hardware & software (i.e. Ethernet cards and/or software drivers) to ensure that all clients operate with the router.

By default of your mac computer it has already a buil-in LAN port same as your pc and it should be properly configured. just connect the cable from the mac lan port and the other end goes to your port 1 to 4 of the linksys router and it should give you an internet connection. if there is no internet access, pls check the ff:
1. Go to system preferences, network
2. It will pop up the network window
3. location set it to automatic
4. show - set it to built in ethernet
5. once you set it to built in on the lower portion it should set to tcp/ip and the ip address should show, once there is an ip address, you should get an internet connection, sabe or apply the settings
6. you are going to do the same thing if you are going to set the pc on a wireless connection.

if you have any querry pls feel to get in touch..

Mac router compatability Zoom ADSL X6

Remember it takes two to tango, so the issue may just as well be in the iMac as in the Zoom X6... Regardless of that, I had the same problem (PC works fine, iMac and PC both get flaky when the iMac is powered up). Zoom tech support suggested trying RF channels 1, 6, or 11. The router was using channel 10, changing to channel 11 calmed things down. Zoom said there wasn't anything magic in those numbers, but their testing showed those channels worked best with the Apple products.
