Question about Apple (APP M7600LL/D) Wireless Adapter

7 Answers

AirPort Password I just put an AirPort card in my Power Mac G4. It readily accesses my neighbor's unprotected wireless network, and recognizes my password-protected wireless network, but won't accept my password. The password is accepted through other computers on my network, so I know it's the right password. Any suggestions?

Hello,

This article provides instruction on the installation of the AirPort Wireless Networking card into a Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) computer. Similar instructions, with graphics, are included with the AirPort card.

1. Shut down the computer (choose Shut Down from the Special menu) and unplug all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch the metal PCI access cover on the back of the computer to discharge static electricity. Avoid walking around until you have finished installing the card. Unplug the power cord then lift the latch on the side of the computer.
3. Gently lower the side panel onto a clean, flat surface. Lower it onto a soft cloth to avoid scratching the case.
4. Connect the antenna cable to the connector on the end of the AirPort card. The cable is usually stowed on the side of the PCI card guide.
5. Remove the metal clip and pull the AirPort card from the adapter card, shown below. The adapter card and clip are not used with your Power Mac G4.

6. Insert the AirPort card (serial number side up) through the opening in the PCI card guide, and into the connector on the main logic board as shown below.

58536_2.gif

7. Raise the side panel and press it against the case until it snaps into place.
Instructions for using the AirPort software are in Mac Help, available in the Help menu.

Wireless Internet access requires an Internet service provider (fees may apply) and AirPort (or AirPort-compatible) wireless Ethernet card and base station. Some ISPs are not compatible with AirPort. For more information, see technical document 106590: "AirPort: Requirements for Wireless Internet Access"

try the above link to get more detail.
Thank You

    To password-protect your wireless network:


    1. Open
      AirPort Utility, located in the Utilities folder in the Applications
      folder on a computer using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs
      > AirPort on a computer using Windows.

    2. Select your base station, and then choose Manual Setup from the Base Station menu. Enter the base station password if necessary.

    3. Click AirPort in the toolbar, and then click Wireless.

    4. Choose a password scheme from the Wireless Security pop-up menu.

    5. Enter the password all users will need in order to join this wireless network.

    you try adding a $ (dollar sign) before the password? I was having the same problem with my work's wireless network, and when our admin suggested doing that, I was able to connect.

    So if the password for your Windows compatriots is asdfg, the password your would enter is $asdfg

Check the type of security used on the G4 (WEP/WPA).
Check your router/base station for other type of security implemented (MAC address filter/restrictions).

What I would suggest is reseating the airport card as it may be the card has come loose or the cable is not connected properly. The following support page on the apple website will tell you how to do it.

Failing that you will probably have to buy an new airport card or a wireless usb adaptor. You should be able to pick one up from ebay fairly cheaply.

Hope this helps.

Trouble connecting Power Mac G4 Airport saying "invalid password"


WPA is supported by both the Airport Extreme and Mac OS versions 10.3.
It's possible you need to change your encryption specification on the Netgear to "Shared Key" instead of the default "Open."

Ibook g3


First of all, you need an Airport card for the iBook G3, chech for example this link; http://popular.ebay.com/ns/Computers-Networking/Original-Airport-Card.html (you should buy one like this: 9deeeda.jpg


, there is a G4 card too, but your iBook doesn't support this one).
Next, install it;


Then, buy a wireless router that uses 802.11b/g or 802.11b. This is very important because your airport card doesn't support 802.11g, and install it, but don't protect your network with a WAP password, your iBook doesn't support this, but use WEP.
Then start your iBook, and click on the Airport icon in the right corner, select your network, type in the password and it will work!

I would assume that your neighbor is running a b or g network without password.

To eliminate the signal issue, do the trouble shooting have the phone at least 6-7 feet away from the Airport. Try to have the phone connected without the network password first to check if it detects it. You can either reposition the airport or change the channels to resolve this.

Check with the airport if it is running on N or 802.11n, have it set to b or g or if it is running on all of them, then it should be fine since the phone does not support wireless N. If the issue is with the security, try first to connect without any network password. Once you have the phone connected, try out the different encryption one at a time. The phone supports WEP, WPA and WPA 2. Encryption may be tricky as this stage as different manufacturers may prefer specific encryptions.

I can't connect apple airport expresses with a siemens 587 route


Login to your airport express using Apple's airport utilities (either in it's current configuration or after resetting it).

Using the airport utility do not choose manual setup, just select continue.

Adjust (as required) the airport express station name and password and select continue.

Select "I have a wireless network and I want to add AirPort Express or replace an existing device on my network and select continue.

Select I want Airport Express to wireless join my current network and select continue.

Choose if you want to extent the rance of your network or just join the network and select continue.

Choose the network you wish to join... etc etc etc....

You should be fine.

Airport hardware is not recognized


I say it'd be more likely that the airport card shifted in the socket. I could be wrong but take a look. I'm not sure if it's true on the 12" models, but on all the others, there is a cover in the battery compartment that hides the airport. Take it out and put it back in. My 17" powerbook took a 4ft drop to the asphalt late last year and it came out with only a few small scratches. You might also try swapping the airport card with another one just to verify if the slot is good.
