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.

Connected Canon MP610 to Apple Time capsule via USB. My Macbook pro prints wirelessly perfectly, as does my sons Vista Laptop, however my daughters vista laptop and my wifes XP laptop print black fine, but...


Hi richardhaley,
Isee that you are having issues with your Canon MP610 printer.
You mentioned that your printer is connected to an Apple Time capsule via USB and that it works fin on your Macbook and on your sons Vista Laptop but prints the colored shifted to the right on your daughter's Vista and wife's XP Laptop and this is connected via USB.
If I may ask have you tried printing wireless using your daughters Vista Laptop and you wife's XP Laptop to see if the colors are still gonna shifted to the right.
Also you mentioned the drive that the driver you are using is from bonjour but still you have the same problem.
Here is a link where you can download drivers specific for the versions of windows your daughter's Vista and your wife's XP would have, you will need to select exactly the OS operating system for the driver that you need also there is a software for each Operating system as well maybe you can download that as well for both system for you to be able to recalibrate the printer from the 2 machines.
I hope that this will help.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,
mvincentc

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.

Wireless computers work fine, wired desktop extremely slow


On your old desktop, go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings make sure no check on boxes there. Click OK and Apply. Click on General tab, click on Delete File (delete all offline content), Clear History and Delete Cookies. Click Apply and OK.

WG111: junk? Extremely slow speeds and getting dropped a lot


Make sure to set the wireless chanel on to a specific channel. As with Vista there are some issues with wireless connection when the router is broadcasting at AUTO mode. Try diffrent channels on the router and choose the one that works best.

Also, it is advisable to resintall the adapter using the latest adapter drivers from the link below:

Router greatly slows up/downloads to 25% of direct from modem


I am using a Belkin N1 Vision router with Vonage and i am having no issues with speed at the moment. What OS and connection are you using. If its Vista and Wireless make sure you are using AES encryption and not TKIP as my wireless network was painfully slow using TKIP and lightning with AES and WPA2
