In most cases mac pc's do not connect especially if the router is secured. Seek assistance from your router manufacturer to disable security on your mac pc. Then do a power cycle> Which means turn everything off starting with the PC down to the router and then to the Modem. When you plug back, try starting off with your modem then router next , pc last. regards

My EA nation connection keeps crashing


f this issue has been ongoing, I would recommend troubleshooting the network connection.
Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can take for the network:
* Disable your Media Server Connection under [Settings] [Network Settings] [Media Server Connection].
* Power cycle your network devices. Leave both your modem and router unplugged without power for at least a full two minutes.

After you power cycle, attempt to reconnect to your network with the following steps:
* Select [Settings] > [Network Settings] > [Internet Connection Settings].
* Choose [Easy] set up, and then [Wireless Network].
* [Scan] for your network, then select your network from the list.
* Press right once you see your network's ID, then ensure that the proper security type is highlighted. Press right again, and then enter your network security key.
* Press X to save your settings, and then X again to test if your connection is now working.

* Try positioning your PlayStation3 system closer to the wireless router to enhance the wireless signal.
* Try updating your router or modem firmware through your computer.
* If your router has a MAC address filter, please add the MAC address of your PlayStation3 to the accepted list. Your MAC address can be found at [Settings] > [System Settings] > [System Information].
* You may need to open ports on your router. I've included a link to the port information below, you will need to contact your router manufacturer for support with opening the ports for game play:

Firewall Port Numbers to Play Games Online
Article Link: http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/241

* You may need to connect the PlayStation 3 system directly to your router via an Ethernet cable to increase the signal strength.
* Finally, try connecting your PlayStation 3 to the Internet in a different network environment (such as a friend's house) to see if you receive better results. If you do, the problem lies with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or router manufacturer.

Recently my D-link has lost its connectivity, oddly my Mac computer can pick up a wireless signal and access internet while any other wireless devices fail to acquire internet. I tried a cable connection...


Hello, Looks like your Mac might have connected to some other unsecured wireless network in your neighborhood. First connect any computer directly to your modem and check if you are able to go online. If the "internet" light is not lit on the router then there is no way your Mac can access internet through the wireless signals of that router. If you do not have internet connection through your modem then contact your internet service provider. If you are able to go online through your modem then perform the following steps..
1) Disconnect the power from both modem and router wait for a minute and connect the power back for modem first and after ten seconds connect the power for your router. Now once all the lights are stable check if you are able to go online through the router. 2) If the above step didn't work then you will have to reset and reconfigure your router. You will see a small reset button at the back of the router, press and hold it for 10 seconds and let go of it( while power is connected to the router) now disconnect the power from your router and connect it back after 10 seconds. Once you have done this you can reconfigure using the disk provided with the router by re-entering the ISP information. 3) Once this is done check if you have any firmware update to your router by logging on to the router vendor's website and entering your product details.
Hope this helped..!

My linksys router shows full signal but it still wont allow me to connect to the net please help...IP issue maybe


Your configuration might be wrong. If you have cable internet connection, you have to set your router to clone the mac address. If you have DSL connection that requires user name and password, you can use PPPoE and just put the user name and password that you use.

Internet connection fails through DLink router


Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) require that you "register" the 'MAC' (not an Apple --> Media Acquisition Control) address of the network-adapter of your computer (or router) with the ISP,
before the ISP will allow your computer (or router) to be provisioned.

Your router has a different MAC-address than your computer.
So, your computer works with its "registered" MAC-address,
but your router cannot connect with its "unregistered" MAC-address.

Access the web-server inside the router, and click the 'Clone MAC-address' button, and restart the router.

Then, the router will send the MAC-address of your computer, rather than its own MAC-address, to your ISP.

I have a ibook g3 clamshell laptop. I am trying


The G3 iMac clamshell speaks 802.11b wireless signal only. If your router is an 802.11n router, this symptom is known to occur, especially if you have any level of encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) on your router signal. Try temporarily turning the encryption off on your router and disabling N mode (set to G mode only) and see if this solves your problem. If so, obviously you don't want to leave your router unencrypted, but you may have to leave it set to G mode as long as you want your clamshell to be able to access it.

Airport says full connection to wireless router, not online tho


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.

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

Wireless connection


Access the routers admin page with the hardwired pc.  http://*gateway*  right click network status on pc and get gateway.  Google the model you have for the default passwords.  Setup your wifi security then do the same to your laptop and attempt to connect again.  Bad settings somewhere.
