Question about Computers & Internet
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls determine the IP address of the Windows laptop. Pls include Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. Power off the Windows laptop. Thereafter, set the MAC to static IP address and copy the numbers from the Windows laptop to the Mac. Soon as the Mac is working, power on the Windows laptop. If ther wil be an instance that Windows displays that the IP/Network address is already in use. power down the Windows laptop. Modify the Mac by increasing the last digit of the static IP addres by at least 1. Try again.
This is of course assuming that the WiFi of the Mac is working and there are no security WEP/WPA being used on the WiFi router.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
