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.

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).

I am not sure on how to hook this up to the router, what wire do i use i am really lost please help


Wireless Router settings:


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, which you can get from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below:


To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.


Things to set:


(Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE OFTEN.)

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).


There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not set mac address limits.

My neighbors are able to use my router how do i install a block/password


Hi d_smonty! Here is the minimum recommendations I provide for anyone that set up a home wireless network for.

1. Change the default SSID for the access point. To many folks know the defaults
2. Change the default ADMIN password. Again to many people know the defaults.
3. Turn off the broadcast of the SSID. This will prohibit other folks from knowing you have the wireless access point.
4. Turn on MAC filtering. While it is true that many newer network cards can be set for MAC filtering without knowing the proper MAC they still won't get in.

These 4 steps will set you up for basic Wireless security and can be done on your own. Make sure you are doing this from a computer that is wired to the access point. Otherwise you will lose your wireless connection ad not be able to get in and change things. I also recommend that after each step you check the wireless connectivity.

Finally if you access point/router is providing Dynamic IP addresses to the other computes you can change the range of those IP addresses to be different then the default setting. Please feel free to contact me here under your topic if further assistance is needed Regards

I'm not sure I follow. Did you replace your old 'b' card with a 'g' card and now you can't connect as you did before? What kind of router do you have and what is it set to accept? Can it talk 'g' or is limited to 'b'? Can your new card connect in 'b' mode?

Wireless connection isn't recognized


Please log into the admin panel of the Wireless router and see it the option for Broadcast has been enabled. If not check the box, save the settings and reload the router. You will then see the name being broadcasted.

Please rate if helpful.

I cannot get the adapter to connect to my network even after i put in my password


Check if your wireless router / access point has a MAC filter/Physical Address security or something to that effect enabled. If so, your adapter's MAC (physical) address has to be added to the allowed list.
See my tip Securing the wireless router for details on MAC filter.
Don't forget to come back with a testimonial if helped :)

No, you need to use an Apple Airport device.

Depending on which Mac you have, it either came with an Airport adapter or in the case of older Macs, you can install an Airport adapter.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

No it's not.
Ativa's web page (here) does not offer a driver for Mac.

"What operating system does this device support?
This device support Windows 98se, ME, 2000, and XP. It is not compatible with Mac systems."

Sorry, but you might have to look for an appropriate AirPort card.
