    Hi, I can help but I will need just a few more bits of information:

    • Have you tried with any success connecting using wired ethernet?

    • What kind of wireless router are you connecting to?

    • What version of OSX are you using (find out the Apple Logo at the top and then About This Mac)?
    Look forward to hearing back from you

Can you connect hardwired?
If so, try selecting "Software Update" from under the Apple in the upper Left hand corner. There have been a number of updates that effect wireless connectivity.

Additionally try repairing permissions Application / Utilities / Disk Utility

Using Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, want to add a netgear WNDR3700 Wireless Router to act as an assess point

The simplest way to add more ethernet ports is to use a network hub and connect it to the Netgear DG834 instead of the Netgear WNDR3700. This does not require any configuration.

Message says offline how do I connect to internet via wifi

1.Click on the Apple button, which opens the main menu. Select "Network" and then press "Configure" on the network page. Check the box next to "Show AirPort status in menu bar" and now click the Airport icon, which looks like a signal. Note that if you already have airport enabled, you can skip this step.
Choose a network from the list that pops up after you click the Airport icon. You will see all the wireless networks in range of your computer, including wireless Internet networks. If the network has a password (closed network), a box will pop up asking you to type in the password. Click "OK" and you should connect to the network right away.
3.Go to the folder that contains the hard drives and you will see a folder that is called "Network Folders" and it will contain all the shared folders on the network. To share your folders, go to "System Preferences" and select the "Sharing" button. Put a check in the "File Sharing" box and then click the "+" sign to choose the folders you are going to add. Once you have selected all the folders that you wish to share, click the "+" button next to "Users" and select the users you wish to share the file with, or select all of them. Select the arrow on the top left corner of the screen to apply the changes.

Safari won't work and now google chrome won't work either. I can access internet on the household pcs but not the macbook. Can't figure out how to read system errors or run a performance check etc. What...

if they both don't work, it's probably a configuration error in your network settings.
go to system preferences, network, and in locations, edit and create a new location. This sets you up from fresh with networking defaults. You may have to set up new airport and passwords to access the wireless, but this should get you up and running..

Swapping MacBook Screens

As long as the lcd cable connects to the new screen it should work just fine. Just power it on before putting all the screws back to make sure.

In regards to the wireless I don't understand the question completely. The 2006 will probably only have two wires...just make sure they go where the white and black ones did. You'll just lose a lot of the "N" network strength.

Hopefully that answers you questions. If not, let me know.

Macbook 13.3" won't log in to wireless

You need to check your network card software your problem may lay there. I've seen this problem many times in the passed. I will install a wireless network card or software on someones computer and two days later it will not connect everything looks fine. No matter what I do it will not connect. Remove net software for the card or on board wireless reinstall and boom it works fine.
routers may need reset or configured off the internet or the start up cd. I take this a wireless router hooked to internet gateway. don't know not enough information you may need to tell me a little more. first try install of net-card software then set you working router to unsecure no pass word need see if you connect then change it to you wpa password protected.

Macbook airport

you should try a software update first along with a PRAM and SMC update (hold the power button down when the computer is off for 15 seconds-it will beep. immediately after that hold down the Apple, option, P and R keys simultaneously until the computer reboots and chimes 3 times)
