Can you clarify the problem for me:

1. Mac Type = Macbook
2. Operating System = Mac OS ?
3. What are you trying to connect to?

For example are you trying to set up a Wireless Home network, meaning that iPhones, iPods or other macs can share the one Internet Connection. This is called a Computer-to-Computer Network.

OR are you trying to configure a Wireless Modem to work with your MacBook?

Setting up a Computer-to-Computer Network is done by:

1. Select System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
2. Select Network from the Internet & Wireless section.
3. Select Airport from the list of devices.
4. Click the Turn Airport On button, located next to Status. NOTE: If it is already turned on then this button will read Turn Airport Off.
5. Select Create Network from the drop down menu adjacent Network Name.
6. Type in the preferred name that you wish to call your network in the Name field. (ie., MacBookHomeNetwork or something)
7. Select the Channel (Channel 11) is an OK one to select.
8. Choose whether you want the user to type in a password to gain access to your network. (This is recommended.) If you do, then click the check box beside Require Password.
8.1 Type in the Password into the Password field.
8.2 Type the Password again into the Verify field.
8.3 Select the type of encryption you want to use, 40bit or 128bit.
9. Click the Show Airport status in Menu Bar check box.

NOTE: If you require advanced settings, then click the Advanced ... button.

10. Apply and then go back to the System Preferences window (using the Left Arrow located top/left of window). If you get stuck, get back using Instruction No.1 above.)
11. Click the Sharing Icon in the Internet & Wireless section.
12. Select from the list each item you wish to share (i.e, File, Printer, Bluetooth, Internet, DVD or CD etc...).

NOW : From your other device, you need to locate the new Wireless Network Connection.

If it is an iPhone or iPod then go to the Settings menu and select Wi-Fi from the list. The new network should be picked up automatically. Log in to it (if you set up passwords).

I hope this helps. Regards,

I can't get my Macbook setup to use the Lexmark x6650. I used the install disc and the wifi light on the printer is green, but I still cannot figure out how to setup my Macbook to print to is...


Print the network settings page to identify if your printer is connected to your wireless network:

1. Press Setup on the printer operator panel.

2. Press the right or left arrow button until Network Setup is displayed, press OK.

3. Press OK at Print Setup Page.

4. Press OK when prompted to Load Paper.

5. Press OK. The network settings page will now print.


Check the Network Card Status, SSID, Trouble Code, TCP/IP Address. SSID should be the name of your wireless network. Otherwise, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings.


How to reset network settings:

1. Press Setup.

2. Press the right or left arrow button until Network Setup is displayed, press OK.

3. Press the right or left arrow button until Reset Network Adapter Defaults is displayed, press OK.

4. Press the right or left arrow button to display Yes, pressOK.

Once the Wi-Fi light turns on to solid orange, run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Assistant on your Mac.

I have a macbook and am trying to set up a new tivo premiere xl with a wireless n adapter. i am stuck at the phase were i have to put in 192.168.10.1 to be able to continue my set up. at 192.168.10.1 i...


I don't think your Macbook is required in this situation, if I understand correctly the wireless N adapter plugs into the tivo correct? If so then your entering the data via some sort of input device (keyboard, remote, etc.) into the settings for your tivo. Try powering your router off waiting 30 secs and then power it back on, then try entering the data again. It could also be that your router doesn't use the 192.168.10.1 numbering scheme, some routers like apple's use a 10.xx.xx.x system and others use 192.168.1.xxx. I'm guessing that the tivo setup is asking for your routers IP address so it can assign the wireless N adapter an IP address of its own via DHCP. If this is the case try looking in your router's user manual to see what the router's IP address is set to by default when you first install it. Hope this helps, I could help further if I had some more information about the situation. If this does solve the problem, don't forget to vote, rate, comment, etc. Thank you.

Unable to setup N Wireless Router in Apartment


Hi.

you do not have to run tye setup disk..

go to command prompt and do ipconfig
find the default gateway,launch internet explorer and in the address box type in the default gateway make sure the router is hardwired as sometimes it does not work on a wireless conection when you configure it.

If you get the router's console page it means that the router is getting detected(you can also ping the gateway on the command prompt to check the same)

on the console page you can fill all the settings and save them..the router will reboot and then you shold be able to use the router with proper internet and wireless settings.

I have a new Macbook and A new dell printer not compatible.


Make sure that you set it up with a USB cable and not with wireless if it is available. Then download the driver specific to that printer from the Dell website (http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/). Run the software after it has downloaded, and it will walk you through the installation. Hope this helps.

You may need to access the router's setup page and configure it's Internet connection type to SBC's required settings. Usually it's PPPoE.

How to install D-link DIR 300 for MACBOOK


You shouldn't need to install anything off the CD. Simply plug your Macbook into the DIR-300 via ethernet (making sure you manually set your Macbook's IP to 192.168.0.x (where x is anything from 2-254). Then open up your web browser and type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar. This will log you into the DIR-300 (I think the default login is "admin" with no password).

Refer to the manual for the configuration for the rest of your setup.
