Lost Net Connection after iMac was disconnected from Network

My son's iMac was set up, turned on, and linked in. Then he took it to his dad's. When he brought it back, there was not connection, and I cannot find it. I have a PowerMac G5 with Wireless Router WRT54G and he has Airport. My daughter's eMac also lost her connection to the net. Any ideas? My Mac has an Airport antenna externally. Any ideas?

Cable modems don't usually have this issue so I'll assume your on a DSL connection, 56K modem, or someother phone related variant. You were most likely setup for a connection through your Airport using local IP settings on each machine and when you moved the machine you reconfigured yourself with a DHCP address. There are two solutions. (1) Reconfigure every machine for DSL (2) Configure your airport for DSL and connect everything to it.

Unfortunately the process from one provider to another varies slightly. But for that reason I generally only recommend cable for multi-computer housholds sharing a web connection.

    Not saying you need to get cable, just that you should talk to your provider about configuring the airport instead of each machine.

This is common with network connectivity issues. Turn the PS3 off, unplug the power from your router for about a minute, plug it back in and give a few minutes to completely boot up. Power up the PS3 and try the network configuration again.

When i want to play online call of duty modern warfare 2 it has parental control restriction me and my dad have been trying to fix it for weeks how do you do it ?


I had the same problem with my son.
It turns out (as per Playstation Network) that the age that you input when your Dad set up your account is irreversable.
The only way around this is for your Dad to create a new sub account, with a relevant age for you to use with age restricted games.
My son can now play COD with my supervision.
Hope this helps

My son is home visiting and cannot connect to our high speed internet. It must be something on his computer, as my computer when I hook it up works just fine. Can you help me out? Thanks... Pat


Hi,

This may be due to many reasons.

Firstly, you may be trying to connect both machines on the net within a short time interval... normally ISPs don't allow this to happen, as they want to connect only one PC to one home type connection. Try connecting your son's PC after disconnecting your PC for atleast 1 hour. :)

Also, try to check the settings on your son's PC...it may not be having proper settings for accepting a new network conenction due to some settings of security softwares installed.

If everything is OK and still you are not able to connect, please don't feel shy to call your ISP for a rational explanation.

bye

Have a nice day
