    The PC works some of the time.  When downloading for example an itunes song I got error 100000 which Mac had never heard of.  Normally when trying to download software upgrades on the mac it starts and then stops before any upgrades are identifies.  When I went to the apple homepage and tried to download itunes 8.02 it would timeout.  Once it did make it all the way through but had an error message the I did not write down.

    tried the ethernet cable hardwire directly to the router and it still timed out.

    "The PC works some of the time" does that mean the PC is also experiencing connectivity problems.

    to narrow down, use an ethernet cable and hardwire it to the router and try downloading.

Download music from my computer to my cell phone

I don't believe this is a router-related problem. The process by which it is most convenient to get music on your phone varies by phone OS. If you're an iPhone user, fire up iTunes and drag songs from your music library to your phone (just make sure it's plugged in first ^_^).

Android is a bit of a different story. If you have a Windows computer, your plugged-in android phone should show up in your My Computer window; just drag songs to the phone's music folder. If you have a Mac, you can download the free Android File Transfer app from Google--which works in more or less the same manner.

If your phone has neither Android nor iOS, post your phone's OS (and preferably also model number) if you would like to know the method for your phone. Also, I'd be happy to clarify or further explain anything that was unclear, just ask. ;-)

I'm having trouble finding a reliable software to download that will enable me to play youtube/slacker/pandora (non- itunes music) on my Mac and listen through my stereo using my Airport Express,...

Welcome to Fixya community.

Please try download and Install MacTube Player to play Youtube video or music... Let me know the result please...

Also to play the music in stereo receiver please follow below steps.

  1. Plug in the Apple AirPort Express into a power outlet near the stereo. Connect an audio cable from the audio port on the AirPort Express to the audio in port on your stereo. If your stereo has a different sized audio port than the 3.5 mm one on the AirPort Express, you will need to use an adapter to connect it.
  2. Plug in an ethernet cable from the AirPort Express to your computer or wireless router for a wired connection. For a wireless connection, connect the AirPort Express to your existing home network, or use a computer with a wireless network adapter to connect directly to the AirPort Express.
  3. Connect to the AirPort Express with your computer as directed in the manual to run the setup with the AirPort utility. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Open iTunes and play the music to your stereo. There should be a pop up in the lower right corner after you run the Airport utility.
Let me know how far you could able to reach in a result. Our expert friends are here anytime to solve your issue.

Thanks once again for joining us.

Integrating a mac network

I have an iMac and Canon MP970 printer connected to the router via CAT5 cable and a MacBook Pro that uses the n-protocol of the WLAN. Both work fine and I did not install anything special...
There is really nothing to 'set-up'... What problems are you afraid to experience?

Can not Connect Dlink to old Apple

I had this problem it turns out the password format is a standard 13 charactors, if yours is shorter the computer auto fills the rest, different manufacturers use different charactors. My workround was to add extra "a"s to make 13 in total on the router, match the computers on the network and off you go.

My Belkin n1 router disconnects from telstra every 2 hours - exac

This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.

Problems setting up new macs and a new wireless system with a PC

The MAC address of the network card on the PC is probably registered with Tiscali. The easiest thing to do is to Connect the Belkin router to the internet, then go into the config and clone the MAC address of the windows PC. Once this is done, then you can either plug in the airport express, or configure wifi for the Macs from the belkin.

Using netgear on MAC OSX Leopard - won't connect

When yuour question starts with I have a brand new MAC, probably not.

The default address on a routher is We set them up by plugging a network cable into one of the 4 ports (not WAN) and setting the address of our computer to 192.168.1.x where x is greater than 1 and less than 255. THen we open up Internet Explorer and key in into the address line.

After that, the router will go into quick configure and set itself up, or you can try if you're on the same domain in the network.

The "jargon" your ISP will give you is how the router needs to be provisioned. You may have DNS servers, whether it's DHCP or if you have DSL, typically you need to set PPoE stuff up. With good luck, the auto configure will do all of the things you need.

Now you just have to figure out how to make the MAC change its TCP-IP address :-)
