    I have the same issue.  I have 3 apple laptops hooked up and they all drop in and out.  I get this message on the PowerBook G4's "Airport does not have an ip address and cannot connect to the internet"

I'm not sure but it could be that the particular router has some hardware issues. I bought a Belkin wireless N router a few months back and i had the same problem. It only had a short range and kept cutting off in between. I exchanged it with a new router and voila!. it works fine.
And the other thing i've come to notice. At times having the router under the desk or at a corner might not give off enough to provide a connection within the adjacent room so I've had to place the router in a open and unobstructed place. So much for belkins super signalling.

My mdhd500-n won't connect to new router because it's on a different subnet how do I change it.

The hard drive may still have an old IP address. Set your network hard drive to DHCP. Make sure the IP clears and it is on the routers IP subnet. Just ping the router

Go to Start > Search (Run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /all ENTER.

Have new router. How do I get my printer's wifi back up and running?

Reset your printer's wireless network adapter first before re-connecting it to your new router's wifi network. Check this article from the Lexmark website on How to Reset the Network Settings Back to the Factory Defaults on the 'Impact' S300 and 'Interpret' S400 Series All-in-Ones.
After resetting the printer, check this article on How to Install Lexmark S and Pro Series via Wi-Fi on Mac OS 10.x.
We hope this helps.

Using Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, want to add a netgear WNDR3700 Wireless Router to act as an assess point

The simplest way to add more ethernet ports is to use a network hub and connect it to the Netgear DG834 instead of the Netgear WNDR3700. This does not require any configuration.

I am having trouble connecting my new Macbookpro to the wireless network in my home using a D-Link router (WBR1310). It doesn't seem to like the password which I have on record.

Step 1: Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router ( by default).


Step 2: Enter the username (admin) and password (blank by default), and then click Ok or Log In .


  • How do I find my routers IP Address, in Windows XP?
  • How do I reset my router back to the factory default settings?

    (NOTE: To reach the configuration page of your D-Link router in Mac OS, you will need to use a Java compatible browser such as Firefox or Camino.)

    (NOTE: Some routers have a "Captcha" graphical login option. This option can be disabled in the advanced options of the routers configuration.)

    If you are able to pick signals on the laptop, i am sure that your router & mac book are good.

    there are only two possibilities to work on ;

    1.) look for any interference between the router & computer in the other room like ( refrigerators, television, Music systems, AC, Thermostats)... by pass 'em if required.

    2.) The installation of the reciver on the Mac book might require a range setting.

    Having trouble connecting to my router on my xp side of my mac

    Your xp machine needs to get an address from your router. Make sure that your router is giving out enough addresses for your network and make sure that you are not filtering any mac addresses. It sounds like something is not configured correctly with your security. Disable your security on your router to test the connection.s

    Hard Drive Failure - Coincidence?

    Vista and XP are not compatable on the same network if the router is not specifically designed to handle this. It depends on the router. Either a, use one operating system across the network, or b, purchase a router which can be configured to handle both OS.

    Wireless doest not work (USR8054)

    When you set your security, try using WEP personal as this is the most compatible with your things. Also, it is a good idea to put your computers on the network before you set your password.

    Internet connection randomly dies

    When you connected to the internet via wireless, click start, click run, when box appears type CMD then press enter, when black screen appears, tupe in IPCONFIG then look for the word gateway below it will have a set of numbers at the side of it like copy them down, next open the internet explorer and in the address bar type in the numbers with a dot in-between them three dots in total then press enter, your router settings will open up on screen, look for the wireless tab then have a look for what the time out settings are set for and change them for 99 minutes, sometime they are factory set for 10 min idle time then turn you off. When you have changed to 99 Mins apply / save changes then switch off the router only for 10 seconds then turn back on, then turn off your lap top and then restart it after 10 seconds,
    let me know??
