Airport says full connection to wireless router, not online tho

I have a macbook and for month, been able to get online just fine with my Netgear router. I just tried getting online again and it says it is connected just fine but i have no internet connection with it. Nothing loads, eventhough it says full power.

Im on a different connection now. The Netgear connection is not secured and Im pretty sure its something with the router communicating with my macbook now. I didnt change any settings or anything.

If it says you have a good connection, it means that you are connected to the router, though the router might not be connected to the internet. try powering off/on the router (leave off for 10sec.) to see if that corrects the internet connection issue.

Also, when it says that the connection is good, open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or 10.10.0.0 into the address bar (you can find this address by going to Network properties and looking at the Wireless settings. It should say "gateway" or "router". If you put that address in the browser it will pop up with the Netgear settings page if you have a good connection to the router. If so, then it's a problem with your router connecting to the internet and you might have to call your ISP/cable/phone company to get it fixed.

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.

Apple Macbook Pro does not connect to wireless network


The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.

I am trying to run it on a pc but with a mac airport router to get my pc wireless as well as my macbook. it keeps going from disconnected to connected every few seconds


To be quite honest, get rid of the NetGear device and get a Belkin. That should resolve the problem. Beside NetGear wireless devices tend to mess up downloads larger than 5 Meg. You problem is most likely the device or the location of your router.

If the router is too far away, go to google and search for wireless parabolic antenna. Build one, and follow the instructions.

My son has a macbook pro and every time he opens his browser it knocks out the router, a netgear wgt624, and the signal is dropped


Wow, I've heard of Apple Mac's being evil before, but never heard of one knocking out a whole wireless router.

The technology used by Apple Mac and everybody else is really the same. I can't think of a reason for a macbook pro to cause a router to actually stop transmitting signal?

Try a different wireless router ... see if it zaps that one too. If so take the Apple back to the store or to your church for an exorcism.

Newer Apple Mac may have Airport Pro ... with 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz frequency bands in it. It won't have such an amazing amount of power coming out of it that it can zap (like star wars) a wireless router.

By the way Airport Extreme is a very nice wireless router ... and it should play nice both with Apple Mac's and every other kind of computer. And you can link more than one of them wirelessly.

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 pro only laptop in house that drops wireless connection


This sounds like an Intermittent Wireless connection problem. This is caused by cordless phones with 2.4GHz frequency. What you can do is change the Wireless Channel of your router to a different frequency/channel like channel 11, 1 or 9. Also you can try to relocate the base of your cordless phone away from the router or to a different room. In addition, you can try positioning the router to higher places like on top of cabinet or mount it on the wall..

Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.
