Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I'm trying to set up my mac to a netgear wireless router (for which I'm using the USB stick). However, the disc keeps ejecting and the method I used to set up the wireless router originally doesn't seem to be working.. We've set up a username and password for the network (which I know), but if I type in the address on the bottom of the router it asks me for a name and password for WGT624v3. Thanks!

    The model is WGT624 v3, same as the password it's asking me for...

  • ah504 Apr 29, 2008

    I'm trying to connect to the router, and yes I'm typing the numbers into the internet browser page. I've spoken to someone else and they said they had a feeling that my Mac wouldn't support a USB dongle with wireless as I dont have a Mac with integrated wireless card.

    'Sorry cant help there. Anything usb requires drivers (software
    installed to act as a communication interface between you and the
    computer) Apple have included may drivers in the operating system as
    standard but some devices slip through the net.
    Maybe someone else will know, be prepared to wait a few hours/days for an answer.
    As
    an aside' it is unusual for the included cd to not have a mac set-up
    for these devices, unless they just dont work with a mac. Someone will
    know I'm sure.'

    Any ideas?

    The number on the dongle is WGT 111T.

    Ok so are you tryinig to reinstall the router drivers and tools onto your computer and reset the whole router? Or are you just trying to connect to the router? Also when you say you are tying to connect by putting in the address on the bottom of the router, are you typing the numbers on the bottom of the router into your internet brouser page?

Dvd drive door stuck


In case you're not able to eject the disc using the eject button, you can try right clicking on the CD/DVD drive under 'My Computer' and clicking on eject. If that fails as well, you can try to eject the disc manually by pushing a straightened paper clip or a pin into the tiny hole on front of the CD/DVD drive. You should be able to eject it using the last method.

I need to remove a disk from a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7640S


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

CD won't eject. I've restarted and tried all the fixes recommended by MAC forums and so far no luck. Any other ideas?


If it is just the computer that isn't ejecting the disk (and not a physically "stuck" DVD) there is a way to force eject.

Go to Apple menu > Restart and hold down your mouse button until the disk ejects.

Or you can try the firmware method...

If all other methods fail, you can try to eject the disk using the firmware (this may not work on all computers). To use this method, start up and briefly use the computer with only the firmware loaded, not the standard Mac OS X interface.

To eject a disc using firmware:
Restart the computer.
When you hear the startup sound, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F keys. (The Command key has an Apple on it.)
Release the keys when you see a white welcome screen.
At the prompt, type:
eject cd

Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject the disc, and "ok" appears on the screen when the action is complete.
Type:
mac-boot

Press Return.

Your computer starts up normally and you see the familiar Mac OS X desktop.

I have netgear wpn824 wireless router and it works fine until I try to connect to my work server through their Sonicwall VPN. If I unplug the netgear and go straight into my computer through the DSL modem...


Two routers on two different sets of internal IP addresses will cause all kinds of conflicts. A VPN router is even worse. VPNs (virtual private networks) are designed to create encrypted tunnels between two computers. The computer its set to connect to must be authorized either as a user or a device with proper credentials. If your VPN authorizes devices based on MAC addresses, then unless your router's MAC address was previously authorized, youre not going to connect. Lets take the router out of the equation for a second. Do you have a working broadband connection from the sonicwall that the router can be plugged into? If you do, then you can treat this connection to your router like its a cable modem or DSL. If this connection has manual settings (such as IP address, default gateway, and primary and secondary DNS addresses) you will need these settings too. Post back and keep us updated...

I have an Acer Aspire 8.9....and I need to know what type of router I need to go wireless. I purchased one from Netgear, but it has a disc that must be installed and adapter that has to be used {with...


Aspire one does not have a CD/DVDROM however you can use another computer to be able to setup your router. You can probably ask a friend to use his/her laptop that has a CD/DVD ROM. After setting up the router, you can connect your Acer Aspire by letting it detect the wireless signal and connecting to your router wirelessly.

**You can also try to insert the installer disc on another PC and copy all the contents of the CD/DVD installer of the Netgear into a USB flash Drive. Plug the USB flash Drive into your Acer then run the setup file inside and follow the instructions.
