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.

Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

At times, a netbook or notebook can create multiple duplicate links to the same network. Each one will diminish the strength of the connection by a little bit and you should clean them out so that there is only one.

Also, it makes sense to use the MAC address on the server side, such that only a netbook with your unique MAC address can connect to the wireless connection. It saves energy/strength if that is your only real security stopper, since like fingerprints, there are no such things as duplicate MAC addresses.

Try making those changes you might just find a cleaner, stronger connection to your WiFi at home.

Good Luck,

Add a apple computer to our network


When you opened the box and switched the mac on for the first time, After you have had the dinky introduction video and the request for your language of choice, one of the first things it would have done is scanned for wireless networks and shown you all that it could see. It would then ask you to chose which one to use and (if necessary) type in its password.
That, normally, is all you do. From then on the mac logs in to the network automatically.
It would probably be a good idea if you could explain what happens or how you are trying to add the mac to the network, because normally it's a couple of mouse clicks and typing a password.

We have a Linksys G Router. It works fine on my son's (Host) computer. My work laptop will recognize the wireless network but will not connect. My home desktop will not recognize the network. What are we...


There are wireless networking capabilities of the gateway that will prevent or allow specific MAC Addresses from connecting to the network. Go into the wireless settings and adjust the settings to accept the MAC address from your work computer. To find the MAC address from your computers network adapter go into a command prompt by typing cmd in the run box and typing "IPconfig /all" in the window. The MAC address is there it may be called Physical Address. It is always a 16 set of number and letter combinations divided by ":" between every 2 sets of number / letters. On your home desktop this same window will help you diagnose the problem. Your son's computer will help you with this, do this on his as well and compare the IP address with your home computer the address could be something like "192.168.1.?" the last number is going to be unique if the first three numbers match. If the IP address on your home computer doesn't match the first three octets "192.168.1" it will not get out through the gateway. If they don't match you can force it to be on the same network by setting up a static IP address by opening up the Control Panel / Networking icon and finding the icon for the network adapter that you are using and opening it up and clicking on "Properties" and clicking on IPv4 and clicking properties and clicking on Specify IP address and typing the first three octets of your son's computer and adding a fourth number that isn't "0" or "255". You can use any number between those two numbers except those numbers, and isn't the same as your son's IP Address or the Default Gateway which is the Linksys. The "Subnet Mask" will auto install but will be "255.255.255.0". The default gateway and DNS server will be the IP address of the Linksys which most likely will be "192.168.1.1". Click "Ok" on all the open dialog boxes and the computer should be able to get on the internet.

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.

Limited or no Connectivity


First step, does it have a password that you re not putting it? second, how far aay are you frm the router? have you tried getting closer to it and see if it works? third: try unistalling your wireless crd drivers and reinstall in them again. Try removing the card and reintall it again as well, If any of this does not work there are two other options, You card may not be compatible with the router. Or you may need o reinstall your windows software again, you may have firewall issues. Please advice.
