Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook

Wireless downloads at very low transmit rate

I'm trying to download a trial version of QuarkXpress 7.3 via my Airport wireless. I'm using various hotspots (Internet cafes, or even piggy-backing on any available wireless) around Plymouth City centre. All appears well at first and the download progresses as normal. But then the transmit rate hits something like 240 KB/sec and rapidly deteriorates to a ridiculous 0.5 KB/sec. Even when I plug in using an ethernet cable the result is the same. Now, after about 15 attempts, I have given up trying to download anything from the internet. Can you help?  Thanks

    Thank you, I appreciate that reply. It had been suggested to me that the problem could be with the Quark website, although I get the same result trying to download from whichever website - but only with fairly large files. As it is, I have the software now, and via my own MBP, but with a file size of over 350 mb you can imagine just how long it took. And that's not all, the evaluation version I managed to download in the end won't install on my computer! Problems, problems, problems...
    Still, thank you again for trying.

Could it be the website that is hosting the file?  Have you tried to download it with a different computer?

Error number 16


I don't know what version you're using but the error is regarding the fact that the program can't open the file because it's to old or a newer version unsupported.

Try downloading the latest version: HERE
open the file you're having problems with and save the file type to the version you're using. v8 or v7 I presume ?
If all else fails, you could always give inDesign a bash. They also have a version you can trial for a few days.

From my reading at the Apple support web site, it appears that you may need to download the latest version of the Airport Utility in order to get around this issue.
Additionally, Apple has just recently come up with an update to the firmware for this device.
Try downloading the latest version of the Airport Utility (Mac or Windows) and see if that doesn't resolve the issue.
After installing the latest version of the Airport Utility, try to connect to the Airport Express. If that is successful with the new version, click the "Manual Setup" button to display the "Summary" page for the Airport Express.
Next to the entry for "Version:" there should be a button to press to upgrade the firmware to the latest version (7.5.2). Perform the upgrade by following the on screen directions.
After the upgrade, again attempt to connect to the Airport Express using the Airport Utility. This should work as expected.
Before attempting to use the AirTunes (recently renamed "AirPlay"), make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed.

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.

After re-installed my t42 2373K1U with windows XP SP3, the internal wireless network controller is no longer working. I have tried to download several drivers from Lenovo website but they all failed to...


When you download the T40 device drivers, they need to be the XP versions.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one.

Sir,

Change the settings of my Airport Extreme back to "Create a wireless network".
Check your airport settings using Airport Utility (if you don't have it just download it from Apple) and look for "Wireless Mode";

Make sure is set to "Create a wireless network".


it is a driver, settings or software version based problem. So try to download latest driver and change the setting of above i mentioned.....
