How to factory restore my macbook without disk?


If you held the 'option' key during power up and then selected the recovery icon, you will have come up to the utilities screen. From that screen you can choose 'Reinstall OS X', but you need to be connected to the internet to do this.
If you connect via WiFi, then in the top right corner there should be a WiFi symbol, clicking on it will allow you to connect to a WiFi network.

Lost wifi connection


Macbooks can be a bit finicky with their Wifi depending on the model number, and also which router you have. For example, an old Netgear-based router I had would routinely drop the connection to my old Macbook Pro, even though the mac had nothing wrong with its hardware or software, and it would still think it was connected perfectly to the internet.

The easiest way to determine if there is a problem with the Wifi built in to your mac is to try it on another network and see how you get on.

If you have no problem keeping connected on an alternate network, the issue lies between your computer and the base station, and is probably also affected by any other wireless networks you have close by.

At this point, without knowing anything about your router, I wouldn't want to suggest anything more, though forcing your router to use a particular Wi-Fi channel rather than allowing it to choose it itself might help out a lot. It's probably best to ask a local technician if they can help out if you're not comfortable changing such settings.

Hi there, I got an Apple MacBook Pro, OS 10.6.7 and recently got problems connecting to my wireless internet at home. I've got no problems at all connecting to other wlans (at work, at friends'...


So you're knowledgeable, good. Do you have the SSID broadcasting or not? Do you have WEP or WPA, etc active? Can you find the network you are trying to connect to under preferences on your MacBook Pro? Does your network show up? Either way, delete it and start over. If you re-set up your network and it still doesn't find it, but the other machines in your house work wirelessly, it is still a configuration issue. Do you have your wireless network as the default network to find? Do you have a help desk that you can call at your workplace? Give me more details and i'll continue to try and assist.

Ibook wont log onto my network


I ran into this with my home network and my old g3 ibook needed the older speed wifi to connect. I found my old wifi router, hooked an ethernet cable to the newer router (in a regular ethernet port) and connected the other end to the internet port on the old one... they linked and worked fine to provide wifi for the old G3's ..

Someone on my network


We need to first determine what type of WiFi device you have in your home because each has a little different method of creating security. It would be best to create a security code for your WiFi connection that way only the people you give the code to can have access. Keep in mind there are different types of security codes to deal with. The more basic types of security may be easier to decode by a "hacker" but allow the least amount of work by your own computer. Whereas, the more complex security means much more privacy for you but a little more work for your laptop.
There's also the suggestion of making your WiFi "name" something clever and non-guessable, connect your MacBook to it, save it as a preferred network and then disable the "radio" on your wireless router. this will allow your WiFi network to continue working, but it is not constantly broadcasting your network name to your neighbors. They will now need the actual NAME of your network PLUS the security code you've enabled.
Many remote support technology companies, including me, are able to use your Internet connection to connect to your computer and then secure and configure your WiFi device for you if you're not comfortable doing the things I've outlined.

Could not connect to campus wifi through leopard


You may need to access the network with the ASCII password. Is there a system administrator you can contact to get this code? It will be a very long string of characters and replaces the typical password you seen in many Airport type setups.

Campus wifi not able to connect


You can only use your Airport with one OS at a time. If you have OS X using it, XP will be able to piggyback.

Can't connect!


First of all... Unplug the modem, unplug the Airport (WiFi router) and turn off the Airport connectivity in your MacBook.
After 5 full minutes... Plug in the modem.
Wait 2 full minutes... Plug in the Airport.
Wait 1 full minute... Turn on the Airport connectivity in your MacBook.
After all of that... 
If you're still not back up and running and you're using an Apple Airport, open the Applications folder, open Utilities, open Airport Utility.
If you're using any other type of WiFi router, use the Network Diagnostics button that should show up in the web browser window when you try to go to any website.
