Question about Gateway Wireless-G WGR-200 Router (7004809)

1 Answer

Slow internet connection between Gateway Router WGR 200 and MacBook Pro running Leopard

My old Mac laptop (Powerbook) connects to the internet and surfs the web with no problem. My new MacBook Pro running Leopard is much slower (sometimes timing out). Could it be incompatibility between the router and the new laptop? In Googling the problem, I found a suggestion to add the DNS numbers 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 to my Network preferences. Seemed to work for a day or so, but last night I was slow again. Any suggestions?

This is related to the firmware of the router, so what you need to do here is to update the firmware of the router and that should fix the problem....

I want to retrieve data from a Powerbook 3400c via ethernet. I have a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard and an iMac running OS10.4


I think the 3400c has a Firewire port, which would allow it to startup in "target disk mode" where it would be just like an external hard drive. That is, hold T at startup to get TDM. I have a Pismo with Firewire but I think the color 3400 is older.
With MacBooks and OS10.5 or later (you are at 10.6) you can do this with USB, also. So it might use the MacBook as the external drive of the PowerBook to transfer files in Finder.
Otherwise, you can turn on AppleShare on both and use Ethernet to transfer files slower.

My internet is unusually slow, and unresponsive.


well it sounds like you need either to reset your wireless router(little blue utton on the back of the router) or you need to clear your safari history/cashe.

good luck

Macbook pro network connection


Verizon, the ones who sent me the router, helped me fix the problem. The router/modem software has to be updated because the old software can't work with the new version of leopard. The technical support guy did all of the updating via a screen share, so your best bet is to call the company who sent you the router and get their help.

Cannot print from my Intel based MAcBook Pro on my Epson Stylus Photo R1800


mac book pro has a usb cable right? you can actually use it to connect to the r2400 and then dont use a guten driver use the downloadable driver for r2400 for leopard instead

Macintosh OS X 10.5 drivers for your product are available for download from the Epson support site.

1. Go to the Epson support website (www.epson.com/support).

2. Select your product model and download the driver for OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system.

Note: Be sure to select the appropriate driver compatible with your system: PowerPC or Intel Intel based.
