Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

Depending on what type of Internet service you are using, your Intel iMac comes standard with an Airport Extreme wireless card built in. As a result, if you are unable to connect wirelessly to the Internet, you will need to try this:

- Click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences from the drop down menu.

- Now locate Network from within System Preferences.
- In the side window, make sure you see Airport and check also to see that it is turned on. If it is, then check the left side window to see if the AirPort connection is active.

Keep in mind, your modem or connection router of course, has to be able to provide wireless connectivity, otherwise, if you do not, there will be no need to try connecting via your AirPort Extreme card.

If your network has been physically set as a wireless network, then just turning on the AirPort card in System Preferences>Network will start discovering all networks within its range, including your own network.

So whether you are using an Airport Extreme, Express or a 3rd party (non-Apple-branded) router, you should be able to connect wirelessly.

If you are still unable to connect with these basic steps, here are a few articles you will need to review from Apple Support informational database:
Requirements for wireless Internet access with AirPort
Airport & Bluetooth interference (for connectivity issues)

So here are some basic steps and resources you can try.

If you have more questions please feel free to post a comment.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,

Jason,

What does the logs say over EAP350, are the cards on Macs properly getting associated with EAP350? What happens if you put static IP?
Also check for the latest firmware for EAP350 which addresses this issue.

Does anyone know how to Do MAC address filtering on Thomson TG782T router?


1st. Have a look at the wireless card that is inserted in your computer, check the label it, will have the MAC address printed on the label. If the wireless card is inside the laptop then have a look at the properties of the wireless card - it should give the MAC address of the wireless card.

2nd. Connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and enter the router's configuration URL address and go to the wireless configuration - then click on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless card.

The router will only allow the MAC addresses that are in this table to connect to the router.

Hey, i recently got a Mac and tried to connect my Z1420 wireless Lexmark printer to it. The wireless did not work, but when i connected it via USB the printer worked. I settled for this but recently the...


You stated you have a mac. Is your Mac a laptop that provides wireless? Or are you on a Mac desk top connected to a router that has wireless included with it.. If you have either than you need to go into your network and sharing to set-up the wireless printer. This will give you access to your router via desktop or your wireless settings via laptop,
Once there if you are already using wireless settings you are going to have to allow your printer in through your wep or wap encryption settings. This was set up when you first started using your wireless to keep out intruders.

DL 524 router with a mac


When you connect the MAC to the router with the CAT 5 cable it works , that means the wired connection of the router is working but the wireless is not working.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router.

How do i cannect my macg4 to my home network??


Ummmm by connecting wireless to a wireless access point that you would have (assumes you have Apple Airport Wireless option in your Mac) or by plugging in to a Switch/Hub (or router with a switch hub.)

Mac OS X should detect the wired connection and get IP Address and Router settings automatically ... just like any other computer.

If you have wireless in the Mac then you should have a radio waves looking Apple Airport Icon. You should be able to find your wireless network and Just Connect.

If all else fails press the Smiley Face button on the mac. :-)

(that was a joke.)

Mac OS X, now based on Unix Operating System, has very good networking sub system built-in. Should work without too much rocket science. The graphical widgets should help you get there.

It won't play blue ray disks though, I can tell you that much.

Can't find mac address on my acer to connect to wireless network at work


i think the wireless at your work filter computers based on their MAC address as a security measure hence you are unable to connect..
to find your comp's MAC address follow this:
  • From the Start button select Run
  • In the box which appears type cmd and click OK
  • A new windows will appear - at the prompt type ipconfig /all
  • The MAC address will be referred to as the Physical Address and is made up of 12 characters e.g. 00-D1-AB-F2-G3-89
    You will have a separate MAC address for your wireless card and your Ethernet card. Make sure you use the correct one

  • do ask the admin of your work wireless system to add your comp's MAC address so that you are able to connect..
    am no expert but love to help out...hope it helps you...all the best!
