I recommend resetting the PRAM and the SMC first, if this fails then remove the airport card and re-insert it. Google instructions by the model of your mac

Can you see a wifi logo at the top screen?
Go into system preferences then to networks.
on the left choose the wireless adapter.
On the left you will see a window that shows the SSID that you have connected.
click the minus (-) button to delete all of them.
ckick apply. Turn on wireless and rescan wifi SSID.

try turn off wifi on the other device and see if the mac can connect.
if you can, maybe your IP is limited to your devices.
try reset your wifi and check again.

hope this helps

Wireless connection stopped working mouse is wireless also working great I went thru all the steps to set up wireless again and still is not working

Are you sure the mouse is working on the same device as the connection with your camera? I guess you are talking about the wireless connection between your PC and Camera.
For a wireless mouse you are using a wireless dongel. A very small usb dongel. Or when you have a MAC the wireless mouse is connected via a dedicated receiver. Setting uo wireless can be for your Wlan, Camera, Keyboard, Mouse and so on. The network uses ip addresses in a certain range. your camera should be working with IP too, but the mouse uses a different protocol and does not work on your network at all.
The only thing these wireless things have in common is they use radio waves. protocols are different. So a working mouse is no guaranty your network or camera is configured correct. Nor a guaranty your switches or routers are working correct.

Please try to describe exact what is working and what is not working. Perhaps you still remember when something went wrong.

The disk might not have a working OS on it.

It you have successfully run the disk utility the disk probably in full working order. I think that the OS on the disk is either missing, corrupt or not compatible with the computer you are running it on.

Iphone 4s won't connect to wireless network

Hi Darren

What type of wireless signal does your new WiFi router support?
I'm guessing you got a new wireless ac router?
The initial run of the ac devices didn't support the older types of wireless signal (b,g,n).
However some of the newer I am fairly certain do.
Either way, the limitation is likely that iPhone 4s supports only up to n and only the 2.4Ghz version of n (not the 5Ghz version).

So Yes, assuming that's the problem, then going back to the wireless g router will fix the problem

However, if your new wireless router/modem does support the other wireless standards it could be that ac is the only signal type turned on. Or if it's NOT an ac device then it may be that the n signal is set to 5Ghz and not 2.4Ghz.

To find out you can typically login to a router/modem through a browser of a device connected to the network it's providing. Then try going to
If that's the correct address you'll see an interface to manage the router (you may have to login... not something anyone here can help with). If that address doesn't work here are a few more to try:

Good luck

Just brought a Sony Bravia HX 800 and added a wireless LAN adapter (UWA-BR100) to get Internet TV. After network set up NOT able to access internet. Message reads Wireless device OK Local Access FAILED...


I got the Bravia KDL-40EX713 and the uwa-br100 I had massive problems getting it to work with a BT home hub. Eventually I found manual setting that work. Firstly I logged on to the router and went the the advanced settings bit, then I went to the DHCP table that shows all the devices connected. I picked an unused Ip address from the range of existing ones being used (this sort of thing

I then used the following settings for the other fields (I don't think the secondary dns setting is right but it still works)


sn mask

default gateway

primary dns

secondary dns

If the DNS server ip is wrong then you get local access OK but internet access failed.

Hope this helps.

2 routers, same WLAN MAC addresses.

First of all, two wireless devices cannot have the same WLAN MAC address. Its like a fingerprint. In this rare case, as you do have it that manner. You can TRY to connect both routers using wireless bridging and check the MAC address (if different) of the router on the DHCP client list. If its the same, this feature will not work. With this. if we confirm its an issue with WLAN MAC address, as it can also be a printing mistake. You can go ahead and request for a replacement from US Robotics and bring this to their notice. Moreover, its not possible to spoof or clone the MAC address present of the network adapter of a router.
Thanks and regards,
