Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a MacBook computer and two days ago I lost the network connection which is carried over a Time Capsule and 2 airport express devices. I called tech support who helped me reestablish a network signal for Andy Lyles network. I notice that the airport icon on the far upper right of the screen only has two arcs highlighted. When I restart the computer and take it into the room where the Time Capsule and one of the Airport express device is plugged in I can get a full highlighted icon. Back in my office however I have highlighted only the first two small arcs. The other problem that has occurred is that I have lost the ability to engage the 7780 HP all in one printer copier. I can understand this if we used a different number for the printer activation. What I need is for the printer to activate from my wife's office in the home and from mine which is in a different office. I hope you can be of help to me with this problem. I know that you deal mainly with PC solutions

For increasing the wifi signal you need to change channel type to 3 or 6 or 11.

For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router..
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Click on wireless settings then click on channel type set it to 3 or 6 orm 11 then try 1 by 1 and save settings and restart router set channel type which gives best signal.
For printer communication issue with router First make sure your printer ip address is in range of router or enable dhcp in wifi router and set ip get automatic in printer.
Check in router wireless security if there is mac filter enable then add your printer mac address in allow list of router.
Also if your router wep security enable then you need to set that password in your printer to connect wifi.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

How do I Connect iPad to printer ?


depends on the printer model....
if you have a recent type of printer with Airprint capability it is very easy to setup wireless.
however if you have an old printer with only a USB-cable you'll need another device to get it working:
Apple sells WiFi-devices like Airport-Express, Time-Capsule and Airport-extreme
Print command central.
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office - Mac and PC users alike - take advantage of one centrally located printer.

Welcome to Fixya

You dont need a CD or driver to connect to time capsule. All you need to do is to have you MACbook detect the Time capsuple. Open AirPort Utility, select Time Capsule, and click Continue. Enter the password of the time capsule if incase you secured the router.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Trying to update firmware on y airport extreme but i forgot my password


You need to perform a soft reset of your router. There directions to do this from the Apple web site are:
  1. Connect the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to power.
  2. Press and hold the reset button with a pen or pencil for 1 full second, then release it. The light (LED) will begin flashing amber, indicating that the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule is in soft reset mode.
  3. From the AirPort menu bar item, choose the network created by the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule (the network name does not change).
  4. Open AirPort Utility in Applications > Utilities on a Mac using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.
  5. Select the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule and click Continue.
  6. A window indicating that the device has been reset will appear.
  7. Select "Restore the previous settings" and select OK.
  8. Move through subsequent windows to make changes to your passwords or other settings as desired, clicking Continue after each one.
  9. When you have moved through all of the selection windows you will be able to select Update. Click Update to install the new settings.
  10. Click Continue to allow your AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to restart.
  11. Quit AirPort Utility.

These directions are from the Apple Support Web Site:

Plug them directly into the Macbook Pro using an ethernet cable and set them up as extended networks using the Airport Utility.

Attempting to connect new Acer netbook to existing Mac network


Had the same problem. What i did was in the Airport Configuration program goto "Airport" then to "Wireless" and then to "Wirelesee options" In this menu deselect "Use wide channels". Also i decreased the power of the 5.0 Ghz transmission, because i don't use it yet. But i think the "Wide channels" is the reason of the problem. It is a bit weird thoug, on my Airports Guest acount with no password and incryption, the Acer One loged on perfectly, but on my private network with WPA2 it did not. Aparantly the Guest network does not use "Wide Channels" Hope this helps, but take care, maybe the menu's are called differendly because i had to translate them from Dutch. Good luck.

Not able to connect to internet via airport express


Have you checked your system preferences, network settings? You have to tell the mac to use airport or ethernet. It may be setup to use the hard wire and not airport. You should see a link to turn on airport in the upper right corner of your screen. I think you can turn airport on there.

Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470


turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...
