Re: Internet connection

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

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..!

Try adjusting te antenna's, make sure that there are no obstacles, that are blocking the signal.
Also make sure that other devices are not interfering with your routers signal.

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.

Signal showing but no connection (zoom 5590 x6)

Hi……there could be a number of reasons why you can’t connect. I’m assuming you have rebooted both laptop and router to see if this helps, so let’s move on to some basic troubleshooting steps to start with:

  1. Can you pick up the internet through a wired (Ethernet) connection between the laptop and the router? If so, this narrows the problem down to your wireless connection.
  2. Can you login to your router again, and check to see if MAC filtering has been enabled. To find this, go to Advanced Setup > MAC filtering. If the status is ‘enabled’, disable it, Save changes, and try to connect wirelessly again
  3. If MAC filtering is off, and you still can’t connect, go to ‘View Wireless Networks’ on your laptop: disconnect from your network, wait 30 seconds, and reconnect. When prompted, re-enter your network key very carefully. Can you connect now?

If you still can’t connect, please come back to Fixya, and let me/us know the operating system on your laptop. Good luck…

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.
