When your MacBook Air is showing some performance issues, it can be caused by either hardware or system problems. If you don't want to pay for hardware upgrade, then try cleaning the system to improve the Macbook speed. Learn more here: http://www.speedupmacbook.com/speed-up-macbook-air.html

SOURCE: Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it

hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

If you want to hook up the printer directly to your wireless gateway, you could get a print server. They are made for usb or parallel printers and run about $40 to $70 for a single printer hookup. Run the software that comes w/ it to create network settings and for installation.

You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...

1 Shut off computers, routers, everything.
2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted.
3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip.
After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers...
This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well...
Give it a try and let me know!

How can I connect my Imac with my Toshiba hdtv Series V4210U via airport extreme?


Does your Toshiba have a wireless adapter? If so, you can set up a home network, if you don't already have one. If no,Does the iMac have a VGA or HDMI connector? You can connect via a adapter cable, Vga to HDMI or a HDMI cable, depending on the iMac connections.

I would recommend purchasing a newer router that is more powerful. The Apple Airport Extreme is a fantastic router. If none of these choices work then you can either connect your Macbook via ethernet or move it closer to your router. here is the Apple Airport Extreme. http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC340LL/A/AirPort-Extreme?mco=MTY3ODQ5OTY

Hi...

If you are trying to access the page 192.168.0.1 via wireless connection then I'm afraid it won't work.

You need to be connected to the router before you can access the routers set-up page.

You have 2 options.

1. Connect your macbook to the router with a ethernet cable then access page 192.168.0.1 or
2. On the back of the router is a small hole. (Reset Button) Using a needle or paper-clip press this button for about 10 seconds then release. This will reset the router to factory default settings and usually (Although not guaranteeing this as can be configured differently depending on where the router came from) mean that wireless is "OPEN" in other words no wep/wpa required.
Then you can access the page and set things up with passwords etc you can remember.
Also underneath the router should be the default wep key "IF" the wireless is passcode enabled.

And despite using 2 different netgear routers and updating the firmware. I have to now tell you.
They constantly locked up and dropped my broadband connection so bad I purchased different equipment.
Just FYI if you get connection issues.

D-link 615 wireless router having problems connecting with my macbook pro. keeps dropping connections.  the airport status always shows its scanning.  always very slow.  


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. If possible then upgrade the firmware of the router. try changing the wireless channel of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router? If not then connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router.

I have a macbook and a pc with a cable modem and an airport extreme. I want to hook them both up so I can use the internet at the same time on the pc and the macbook. How do I do this or hook it up?


Not sure what you have tried yet, so I'll suggest the first thing to try ...
The cable modem will have an ethernet jack on it for "LAN" - you will need an ethernet cable ... plug the cable into this jack .. and the other end of the cable into the airport extreme .. and then power up the airport extreme .. if the airport extreme is new, it will set itself up automatically .. if not new, it might still set itself up automatically - look for a green light on the extreme ... if you have a green light you should be in good shape
Of course your computers have to be in range, say within about 100 feet of the extreme to pick up its wireless signal.
In the MacBook, make sure Airport is turned on - in System Preferences under Network.
Your MacBook should figure things out all by itself and you should be able to connect to the Internet.
On the PC, you'll need a wireless card if you don't already have one ...

You should be able to use the internet simultaneously and each computer should be able to share files if you want to try that (file sharing is turned off by default on the Mac, not sure about the PC)

Good luck!

I have installed an Airport Extreme wireless system for my home. It works fine on an old pc hard wired and wireless on my macbook pro and my windows xp64 system. It can't find an IP address from my Dell...


You need to make sure the wireless card of the Dell is set to the same settings of the Airport. Also, try to ping the Dell under the ipconfig command. If you still have no connection, then you have a problem with the wireless card.
