I have a macbook that I am trying to run wireless. The mac system shows that there is a lock on the password for the network. How can I remove the lock or set a new password. This is a new personal computer and has never been set up for wireless.

The password is most likely on the access point (your wireless base station), rather than on your macbook itself. If you set a password when you set up your wireless access point, that is what you'll need to connect.

You cannot remove the lock because its on network level. Talk to administrator of that network or the owner of that wireless router

Remove the EFI password and Remove the system PIN LOCK


EFI password can be undone within the boot disk utilities. The system lock cannot. Sounds like a stolen machine.

My Mac laptop can go wireless with any network except my home wireless. It did for a while and then I don't know what's happened. I type in the password for the network and it says wrong password even...


Try unplugging the wirelss router power and replugging back in to reset the system. Then try using the default password, which is usually the long serial # on the router. Alternatively, you can call your service provider and have them reset the password for you to get in and then you can change it to whatever you want. Also, for some strange reason macs want you to put a $ sign in front or sometimes in back of the password.

Safari won't work and now google chrome won't work either. I can access internet on the household pcs but not the macbook. Can't figure out how to read system errors or run a performance check etc. What...


if they both don't work, it's probably a configuration error in your network settings.
go to system preferences, network, and in locations, edit and create a new location. This sets you up from fresh with networking defaults. You may have to set up new airport and passwords to access the wireless, but this should get you up and running..

Macbook and wireless n setup how do you set it up????!!!!!


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,

Cannot connect MacBook to DIR-615 router


Is your wireless network secured ?
If you are trying to connect to the secured wireless network, make sure that the network that you are typing is correct.
If you are not sure about the network key
then check the network key on the router.
You said that MAC is able to connect to the neighbor's wireless network.
Make sure that the Wireless MAC filter on your router is disabled.

Macbook 13.3" won't log in to wireless


You need to check your network card software your problem may lay there. I've seen this problem many times in the passed. I will install a wireless network card or software on someones computer and two days later it will not connect everything looks fine. No matter what I do it will not connect. Remove net software for the card or on board wireless reinstall and boom it works fine.
routers may need reset or configured off the internet or the start up cd. I take this a wireless router hooked to internet gateway. don't know not enough information you may need to tell me a little more. first try install of net-card software then set you working router to unsecure no pass word need see if you connect then change it to you wpa password protected.
