Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless issues The wireless connection on my MacBook is painfully slow. It is fast on my desktop (XP) and on my PC laptop (Vista) but essentially unuseable on my MacBook. The same MacBook works fine on other networks beside my own. I have a Micronet SP916GK router and a Scientific Atlanta 2100 Modem. Changing the channel number on the router helps a bit (sometimes raising it from impossibly slow to painfully slow).. otherwise nothing seems to help.

Any tips on extending the life of a Macbook Pro battery?


My suggestion would be to buy a new battery.

After that you should shut down your computer at night (or every other night) and make sure you don't leave it plugged in for a long time (only charge until it is 100% then unplug).

These are two of the most important things towards ensuring significant battery life.

Hope that helps!

Apple Macbook Pro does not connect to wireless network


The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.

MacBook Pro/ ParkerVision SIGNALMAX WR1500/ Compatability?


It looks like the product is no longer supported by ParkerVision and no Mac driver was ever produced. The device you mention uses proprietary technology to get the performance you are seeing.

I would bet that it would be easier to replace your router with a new one that uses industry standards that all platforms support.

Wireless and multi function printers


I'm sorry to say that the answer to your question is no.  You can print wirelessly with most printers using either an Airport Extreme Base station or an Airport Express, but for scanning, you will need to be physically connected to the scanner.

If you wanted to, you might be able to set up that old desktop to be permanently (and physically) connected to the scanner, and then you could either connect to that PC over your home network to access the scanned files, or you could potentially email them to yourself from the PC.  That might be your best bet.

Hope this helps!
