Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop

2 Answers

UNABLE TO OPEN ANY PAGE

I HAVE 3 COMPUTERS AT HOME. ONE OF THEM IS WIRELESS, THE OTHER TWO ARE NOT. OCCASIONALLY, MY WIRELESS HAS NO CONNECTION AND I CAN'T OPEN ANY PAGE. HIS HAPPENS WHILE THE SIGNAL FROM THE ROUTER IS VERY STRONG AND IT ALWAYS IS.

I CAN ALWAYS CONNECT TO THE INTERNET IF I USE MY OTHER TWO DESKTOPS, WHICH ARE CONNECTED (ETHERNET) TO THE ROUTER.

THIS PROBLEM WITH THE WIRELESS ALWAYS FIXES ITSELF, HOWEVER, IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING.

I USE AN AT&T 2WIRE ROUTER AND I HAVE A MAC COMPUTER.

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

THANKS.

Is it actively connected when this happens? You said the wireless signal is strong so i guess it is. In your airport menu, there is an option for "interference robustness" that may fix the problem.

You may want to check the wireless security settings ie. (WEP / WPA /WPA2...etc) on the router, certain settings don't always work well with the macintosh, try changing them and that should help your problem.

The internet said that they can not bring up your web page.


Internet Explore Cannot Display the Webpage
As you browse the Web with Internet Explorer, you may occasionally encounter an error message about the browser being unable to display the requested Web page.
If your browser is unable to display a page, the issue lies somewhere along the path from your computer to the remote website. In some cases, you can resolve the issue by troubleshooting your computer or Internet connection. Internet Connection Issue
If Internet Explorer is unable to display any pages at all, see if you are able to browse the Web on another computer.
If none of the computers in your home can browse, the problem is related to your Internet connection.
In some cases, you can resolve an Internet connection issue by unplugging the power connections for your broadband modem and router temporarily.
If you are still unable to browse, contact your Internet service provider for further assistance.

Malicious Software
If you are unable to browse the Web on your computer but can browse on other computers, the computer itself has an issue. In some cases, this can mean that your computer is infected with malicious software.
Download an anti-virus program on another computer and run it on the affected computer to troubleshoot the issue.


User Error If you receive an error in Internet Explorer when you attempt to browse to a single website, but other websites work, check to make sure that you are entering the address of the website correctly.
By default, Internet Explorer searches the Web for a close result if the address you entered is not associated with an actual website. If you have disabled this feature and enter a website address incorrectly, Internet Explorer displays an error message.

Remote Website Issue

If you are unable to browse to a single website and are certain that you have entered the website address correctly, it is likely that the website itself has a problem.
You can wait and attempt to view the website again later, or search for the website on Google or another search engine and click the "Cached" link to view a recent cached copy of the website.

How many wired and wireless computers do you have in the network?
How many are able to access the wireless connection and how many are not?

If you are not able to access the wireless on all the computers and devices then you may need to check the wireless settings of your router.
Connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable and open the setup page.

Cannot Communicate from Computer to Computer


A connection from USB adapter directly to USB adapter may or may not be possible. Borrow a wireless router from someone and use it to test supporting connections to your two computers. I think you will find this a much easier way to proceed. Routers can be had for $40 or less. Shop around.

Good Luck

Unable to open any page


I think it's better to have this case isolated, since it's happening regularly, I think. Does it say the computer got disconnected from the wireless or does is still have the right address after it stop going online via wireless?
Maybe there is an interference that is causing this issue.

No internet connection with laptop computers in home


Good day!

If your Desktop computer is hardwired to the router and your laptop computers can't connect wirelessly, it could be your wireless computers are not synchronized with your router by not having the same settings as the router.

You can use the desktop machine to access your router web interface (setup page) to check the wireless settings such as SSID (Network Name-> Name of your wireless signal shown on your laptop computers), channel and security (wether it is WEP or WPA encryption)

The channel and network name will be automatically detected by the wireless computers. If you have an encryption/security on the router, you need to type the password on the wireless computers for them to authenticate.

Try these and post back if there's any progress

Remote pc cannot access wireless


You can do a reset on your router. All computers must be must be getting its connection from your router. Your wired computer must be getting an ip address from the router(example is 192.168.1.x). You can then access the router page using your browser by typing the default gateway(example 192.168.x.1). This will take you to the router configuration page. You can set up the wireless network and your wireless network can now support more than 2 wireless computers.
