I had a laptop that did that too, here's what you do:
go to System preferences>network>then click "ethernet" If the cable is in, then the computer will automatically use that connection. If you are using an airport click "airport" >Assist Me> Assistant. You should also click the button that says "turn airport on(off)" make sure it says turn airport off. This means that you can now connect to your wireless airport. In the assistant you should be able to select a "Use airport automatically" button. Make sure that the button has been pressed, now the Airport will be what it is set to use, instead of Ethernet.

How do i add the mac address of my printer to the list of permitted devices


Disconnect the Ethernet cable between the router and the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Access the web-interface inside the router.
Allow "all" MAC-addresses to access the router.
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on, so that it gets a "fresh" IP-address from the router.
On the router's web-interface, get it to show a list of the "active" DHCP-connections.
It should show the IP-address and MAC-address for your printer.
Copy that MAC-address, and the MAC-address of your computer.
On the router's web-interface, access the table of "allowable" MAC-addresses.
Add the two MAC-addresses.
Enable the "selected MAC-addresses only" option.
Reconnect the Ethernet cable.

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

My belkin router won't connect to internet, I set it up as the install wizard tells me but when it tries to connect to internet, it takes 10 tries and there is an error, it was a used router we bought so...


First, turn-off the DSL-modem (or the cable-modem).
Then, turn it on.

Check that you have a "straight-through" Ethernet cable -- all 8 coloured wires at one end must be in the SAME order at the other end. Do not use a "cross-over" Ethernet cable.

Check that the Ethernet cable from the modem is connected to the 'WAN' port on the router, not to one of the 'LAN' ports.

Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.

Reconnect to the router's web-interface, and see if the 'WAN' side of the router has obtained an IP-address from your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Some ISPs require that you "register" the MAC (Media Acquisition Control) Address of each device that you connect to their service. So, browse through the router's web-interface, and find the "MAC-address" of the router, which will be different than the MAC-address of the network-adapter inside your computer, and telephone the ISP, and get them to "authorize" the MAC-address of the router.

Telephone your ISP -- they can "troubleshoot" your cable-modem from their end.

Wrong Kind of Ethernet Cable?


If you can still access the web based configuration on your linksys router (by going to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser) that means nothing is wrong with the cable/connections. However the ISP is not letting your router get access to the router since it doesn't have the same MAC address as your computer's ethernet card/port.

To change your routers MAC address to the sameone on your computer (So you ISP thinks its still the computer connected), you have to first go to start>run>type in cmd and when command prompt opens, type in "ipconfig -all", which lists your IP addresses, etc. Make sure you add the -all (With a space after ipconfig) or else you can get your computers MAC address. The Physical Address is your MAC address. Now once you obtained the MAC, go to your router configuration, and login. Then look for where you can set or clone the MAC address of the router. The default mac address could be on the bottom of the router, if so check for it and just look for that address in your web configuration, then change it to your computers MAC address.

Hope this will fix it!

No Internet With New Router, Computer, or Adapter


This document is relevant if you had an Internet connection, but lost it when: * Adding a router to your network, or * Using a different Ethernet adapter card or computer than the one your ISP used during installation. Use ISP Configuration to see whether you need to "spoof a MAC address" to connect to your ISP. If so, follow the instructions in this document. If the Ethernet card that was used during ISP installation is not available, you may need to register the new Ethernet card's MAC address with your ISP for the following to work. MAC address stands for Media Access Control address (not "Macintosh computer"!), a unique number built into modems, routers and other network hardware. It ensures that one piece of equipment is not mistaken for another one. Some ISPs validate your connection by checking the MAC address of the Ethernet adapter in computer that was registered during ISP installation. If you add a router or change computer or Ethernet adapter, these ISPs will drop your Internet connection, because they find the MAC address of the newly added router or adapter, instead of the one they expect. To fix this, change the router to report the Ethernet adapter's MAC, instead of its own. This is called "spoofing the MAC address". To find a PC's or Macintosh's MAC address, see How to Find an Adapter's MAC address : http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=252225&thid=102075. To Spoof a MAC Address 1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router. If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records. 2. Disconnect other computers from the router. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.) 3. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1. 4. Type admin for the username, password for the password, and click OK. 5. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address. 6. Select Use Computer MAC Address. 7. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address. 8. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.
