My 15" macbook pro only occasionally manages to connect to my wifi when using router mac-filtering

Once in a while it manages to connect, but after putting the lid down it's gone again. No problem when router mac-filtering is off. All other units works -
I have a macbook, a 13" macbook pro, 3 iphones, a cpl of toshiba laptops running windows and all of them connect without any problems

No problem when router mac-filtering is off.
Then leave it off. It does nothing to protect you from intrusion.

  • Trying to set up my brand new MacBook Pro and it does not connect with the wifi network I have selected for this purpose. Nothing wrong with the wifi as both my iPad and iPhone are happily connected. Suggestions for connecting to the wifi network accepted

    Setting up my brand new MacBook Pro and it will not connect to the wifi network. Nothing wrong with the network which is happily working for my iPhone and iPad! Suggestions accepted for making this connection.

    Fixing this is a two step process:
    1) System preferences > WiFi/Airport ...
    ... check [√] Ask to join new networks
    "Known networks will be joined automatically.
    If no known networks are available, you will
    be asked before joining a new network."
    2) Remove unwanted networks from the list of "known" networks under
    System preferences > WiFi/Airport > (Advanced) > | Airport/WiFi pane ...
    Close the window and save changes. If no joy, do a restart to ensure you are playing under the new rules.

  • My Macbook Pro locks up and i must manually restart it when using Itunes

    My macbook pro has been locking up for the past month whenever i am using itunes and allow my computer to go "to sleep" on it's own. If i close the lid it doesn't lock up, if i change my setting so my mac doesn't go to sleep, it works fine. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

    Try resetting your SMC and PRAM.

  • My Macbook Pro (Mid-2012) won't connect to an external display using my MiniDP to VGA Cable.

    I'm on a Macbook Pro (Mid-2012) on Mac OS X 10.8.3 (currently downloading the update to 8.4). When I plug in my Mini Displayport to VGA adapter to my Mac, the screen flickers blue for a second and the Display Settings window detects the other monitor and allows me to rearrange the screen, but it does not project anything onto the other monitor. However, I tried connecting an Apple Thunderbolt Monitor to this computer today, and it worked. This wasn't a problem before, as I was able to connect this Mac to other LCD projects before. Furthermore, I don't think it's an issue with the adapter either because it's relatively new. I also tried plugging in the adapter of another Mac (which was working fine) into my Mac, but it didn't work either.
    Here's what I've tried:
    1. Restarting the computer with everything plugged in
    2. Pressing Command + F1 when it's plugged
    Any advice would be helpful!

    Hi lancekatigbak,
    If you're having issues with the display out on your MacBook Pro, you may want to take a look at the troubleshooting steps in the following article:

  • My MacBook Pro is admittedly old (2009) but suddenly very slow when using LR4

    I don't hve the fastest computer, admittedly.  But dowloading raw pics cand take ten minutes per picture.  I am downloading to an external drive - is that the problem, or do I simply need to get a more modern/ faster computer?
    I typically shoot in raw and export jpg versions..
    thank you so much to anyone who steps forward to help answer my novcice questions

    Thanks Butch,  I do have large sized images - in the 28 MP range.  And my laptop was 4GB with 256 memory. 
    To avoid clogging up my hard drive, I was keeping the photos - about 4,000 of them on a separate portable drive, a 1TB MyPassport for Mac drive with - indeed, a USB2.  So it sounds like the size of my images and this slow transfer is probably a big part of my problem.
    I have just upgraded my macbook pro to a new 15" 8GB with a 256 SSD.  And I would like to set up properly.  I still would prefer not to have all the photos reside on my hard drive.  I also have an iMac with a much larger drive, so I guess I could keep the catalog and the photos on it instead - but I don't like to work in my basement space where the desktop is....thus why I've been using laptop.
    Any suggestions would be most welcomed.  I also have a rather large inventory of previous photos that are in jpg format to be moved from iPhoto.  But that is a question for another day.  My immediate challenge is to figure out a workflow that is not too slow but does not eat up my hard drive.  Danielle

  • Are there any apps for the macbook pro that will teach a 4 year old how to use a mac?

    I want to gove my old macbook to my daughter and get her started. does anyone know if there is an app that will walk a child through thir first mac experience and teach them how to operate it?

    This doesn't really answer your question, but children find tablets much easier to use than traditional computers. Even children much younger than your daughter are surprisingly adept with them, and they usually don't need to be taught.

  • I have been using a Docupen scanner with Windows 7 so far. Have recently moved to Macbook Pro (Lion); Am unable to connect.... and use.

    The driver on planon.com site does not install on the Lion OS; The driver installs but the scanner is not visible while trying to add printer....

    No luck.. No devices are visible even in image capture.had raised a support request with planon, the manufacturer of docupen. They say there are no immediate plans for drivers for 10.7; Their position is that Apple should release a patch/upgrade to Lion to allow more hardware to be used...
    Any idea about Apple's position?

  • When I open my macbook pro it's not automatically connected to the wifi at home

    Hello,
    When I open my mac it's just usally is connected to the wifi itself but now I keep getting that I now have to wait 10 seconds or longer after opening my mac to have my mac connected to the wifi ! Has it something to do with Mavericks ?
    Kind regards

    Some users have reported solving this problem by resetting the NVRAM (PRAM.)
    If you've installed something called "iCleanMemory," or any other third-party software that is supposed to "clean" or "free up" memory, remove it according to the developer's instructions after backing up all data. Reboot and test. If there's no change, continue.
    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, or by corruption of certain system caches. 
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • I have managed to lock myself out of my macbook pro only 2 hours after purchasing it .....:/  how do I unlock it?

    I have managed to lock myself out of my macbook pro only 2 hours after purchasing it..................... was playing around with the profile info, eeeeeeeeeeeeeek !  How do I fix this now?

    Did you set a password?
    If you didn't just press enter.
    If that doesn't work you can reset your password by following the instructions on this link http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBkQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fsu pport.apple.com%2Fkb%2Fht1274&ei=KFBWTu2PG47fgQfUx-SMDA&usg=AFQjCNHRcV70YpDn2AVm 9t8b0Sc-bjYSJg

  • I just bought a new MacBook Pro.  I managed to transfer everything to the new laptop.  BUT I'm having some real problems--e.g., wg from my older one to the new one.  Both use the same latest version of Snow Leopard.  My new laptop has the newer track pad.

    I just bought a new MacBook Pro.  I managed to transfer everything from my older MacBook Pro to the new one.  Both use Snow Leopard, the latest update.
    My new one has the newest trackpad, the old one, no.
    I'm have big problems using Text Edit on the new laptop--the curser does not go where I want it to go for editing, I cannot get the text to be a clear or as large
    as with the older Laptop.  Similarly, I cannot find a way to enlarge the menu bar.  But the text edit is my biggest problem right now.  I have reviewed all the preferences, particularly those in Universal Access, to no avail.
    I finally gave up, used dropbox to send the text edit document to my old laptop, and continued with ease.  But this is not the way it should work.  I bought the
    new laptop because the old one is showing signs of age.....
    Is there something wrong with Text Edit while using the new trackpad? 

    Thanks, Sig.
    The old computer is a 2.6 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    The new one is a 2.3 GHz intel core i7
    In going over this, thanks to "tallking it out" with you, I did discover the Text Edit problem.  Because I've still been unable to get the new computer text size (fonts or whatever) to match the old computer, I did not notice that the curser is now different--the line midway down the curser has to be placed on the line I am working upon, otherwise the edits go elsewhere on the page.  Now, with a bit of difficulty, I am able to get Text Edit to work correctly.
    If you have any ideas as to why my menu bar and Text Edit type are still so slow, I'd love to have them. 
    (I went through the process you suggested earlier, re my Trackpad preferences, and found no improvement.)

  • Why does the iCal app on my MacBook Pro only have a 2-year archive? Where did everything before that go? And can I get it back?

    I use my iCal as a daybook and every now and again need to reference events or occurences from several years ago. I tried to look something up from back in 2010 and the iCal on my MacBook Pro only has iCal data from Jan 1, 2011 onwards. Everything I've put in prior to that seems to have disappeared! I can't find anything under preferences that mentions archiving/storage. Can I change the setting so that this info is kept forever? And can I get my previous info back?

    You can only sync with one computer. When you synced to the new computer it would have erased it and synced what was on the new computer.
    You always need to have a backup, an iPhone is not a storage device.
    When you get a new computer you need to transfer your library before syncing
    If you don't have a backup you may be out of luck
    The only thing would be if you're in the US and have access to the iCloud beta to reload purchases

  • Recently I was working on my home Network and lost my Password for my Home wireless connection. After many attempts, I remembered the password and was able to get in. Now the MacBook Pro only works at home on a Hard wire connection. I have an additional 9

    Recently I was working on my home Network and lost myPassword for my Home wireless connection. After many attempts, I remembered thepassword and was able to get in. Now the MacBook Pro only works at home on aHard wire connection. I have an additional 9 devices on the same network, allare functioning properly. The Air connection works fine at any other Networksout side the Home connection. I did a PRAM reset, deleted the Network profileand rebuilt in System Preferences. Still unable to connect wireless on Homenetwork. Any Ideas?

    I seem to have fixed it by putting <div  class="clearfloat"></div> after the navigation bar?

  • I have backed my iTunes with over 10,000 songs on a hard drive and than i reset my computer to factory settings, when i put it back on my macbook pro only 2030 were able to be downloaded back to the same computer

    i have backed my iTunes with over 10,000 songs on a hard drive and than i reset my computer to factory settings because my email was hacked, when i downloaded the music back to my macbook pro only 2030 were able to be downloaded . how can i download all my music back?
    michel p.

    I usually err on the sideof caution when someone says "downloaded" and take it to mean anything fro actually downloaded, to copies, to imported, to moved (frolder to folder), but even if they were "downloaded"... if the old email was hacked, and subseuqently closed out, that leaves the downloaded files "orphaned" if you will, belonging to the old ID. So, while they may be on the HD, they're inaccessible now.
    One of the biggest reasons I NEVER keep anything in my library with DRM employed in it.  I bought it. I own it. I'm not going to get locked out of it.
