As far as I can tell you can only connect to other people's computers via the network router in a wireless application. Even then your brothers computer must be on "share" setting to allow you to do so. Check your airport is working in the network settings function in preferences, if yes, go into you computer on the side bar there will be an icon called "network" click that once and you will see what your airport card is connected to and if your brothers cpu is on that network.

    Otherwise using a bluetooth addition USB to either computer will allow you to share files.

How do i conect my apple computer to my hp officejet 8040 printer


If you can, just plug your printer to the MAC and turn on the printer, then when you power up the MAC it will recognize the printer and should supply the necessary driver for the printer.
Hope this is the type of info you need.
when you power up

My Officejet wont print pdf files from my minimac (os 4.11) but prints fine from my pc running xp. Also my mac has lost ethernet connectivity, but the pc works fine. Any sugguestion how to fix?


This seems to be a single issue. The fact you cannot print to a presumably shared printer AND cannot access the network or Internet, would indicate your issue is simply connectivity related.
Are you connecting the Mac via wired ethernet cable or wireless?
If it is wired, check your connection via the network icon on your screen (usually upper left) Click on the icon and choose "Open Network Preferences". In the window that appears, check on the left side to see if the appropriate connection has a green, yellow or red dot next to it. If the dot is red, you are not connected. If the dot is yellow, you are connected but there is an issue.
If the connection is wired and there are other computers able to get online, then check the cable connected to the Mac or replace it.
If the connection is wireless, then check try reconnecting again and make sure you are using the right passphrase for your security requirements. You may need to delete the profile and recreate it. You can do this by clicking on the Wi-Fi item on the left panel of your Network preferences window and then clicking on Advanced button. In the following window that appears, find your wireless network name in the list under Preferred Networks and click on it to highlight it. Then click the - button to remove it. Then close the window and try reconnecting to the network from the icon on the bar at the top of your screen, using the correct network passphrase (if needed).
If this still does not work, think this through...
1. Is any other computer using wireless connection and having a similar connection issue?
2. Did this computer EVER connect to the network and Internet successfully?
If the answer to either question is yes, then the problem is likely your Router/Modem. power OFF the router (and modem if separate) for about 30 seconds and then power it ON. See if this resolves the connectivity issue. If not, consider doing a factory reset on the router/modem, but make sure you have the appropriate settings needed to configure the router and/or modem as these will likely be lost when you reset the devices and will be required to get connected to your Internet Service Provider.
If the answer to question 2 above is NO, then the problem is directly related to the mac. If you are trying to connect via wireless, try connecting with an ethernet cable instead to make sure the mac can connect that way.
If neither way seems to work, it may be possible there is a network configuration problem, defective router, or possible network conflict present and may require a more professional approach requiring a visit from a networking professional to resolve it.

My iMac keeps loosing wifi conection


Go to system preferences under the apple menu then to network and see if the disconnect when logging out is checked if it is uncheck it and see if that improves your connectivity. Also if you wireless router is close to something that gives out emf e.g. a television it could be interfering with the signal.

How to get wireless internet


Acquiring wireless internet service can be done several ways. The most common way is by using a wireless router - such as an Airport Express - in combination with the modem your internet service provider has given you.
This creates a Wireless Area Network in the range of about 100-300 feet depending on the strength of your router and sources of interference.
Once using a wireless router with your modem, your Mac should be able to connect to it by clicking on the Airport icon in the upper right hand corner and selecting the name of your network.

Other ways to get wireless internet include but are not limited to using an antenna that plugs into your computer in conjunction with a cellular network. Such devices are commonly available but are not going to be anywhere near as fast as a wireless connection created using the method described above.
Keep in mind that using a cellular antennae usually requires additional software supplied by your wireless provider (for example, AT&T or Verizon) whereas your Mac should be able to connect to a wireless network created by a router without any additional software.

You may want to check the wireless security settings ie. (WEP / WPA /WPA2...etc) on the router, certain settings don't always work well with the macintosh, try changing them and that should help your problem.

Isp refusal of thunderbird


Do you mean you're using Thunderbird as your mail client?

There are usually only two things wrong when this happens:

1) You typed in the name of the servers incorrectly (i.e. smtp.isp.com or something). There should be two settings. One for inbound and one for outbound.

2) Your ID and/or password are incorrect. If they have a web client, try your ID/Password there.

The correct settings can be found here:
http://www.netfaqs.com/faqs/settings.asp

If all else fails, go to this address:
http://isp.com/contact.asp

and contact either by phone or email.
