Using the Airport with Multiple Macs

I have three Macs in my house. An eMac, an iMac and an iBook. All three are wireless, we have an Airport. However, we have to reset the DSL everytime we use a different computer. Is this a problem with the Airport or our DSL service? If it's the Airport, what can I change so that we can all use the DSL at the same time?
iBook G4   Mac OS X (10.4.8)   Airport

Welcome to the discussions.
Your problem is how you are confiqured.
1. Make sure that the drivers are set to infrastructure mode and obtain IP auto.
2. Router's DHCP On. (Static IP will work too if set correctly.)
3. Make sure that the Router does not have any MAC or IP filtering on.
4. Disable WEP/WPA on both devices.
5. Set the SSID and channel of the Router and the Client card to be is same.

  • Using an iPod with multiple Macs

    Hi all!
    I have a 30GB iPod with color display. I've been using it with my Power Mac G4. That's where I keep all of my music and photos.
    However, I just got a Pismo PowerBook, and I would like to use my iPod to play music through it while I'm at school, rather than copy my gigs of music onto the PowerBook.
    I used to have the iPod set to automatically update everything, but in order to listen to music on my PowerBook, I had to set it to manually manage.
    Does this mean that I have to manually sync everything, or manually copy music to the playlists on the iPod?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hi Alexander,
    Does this mean that I have to manually sync everything,...
    If the songs/photo differ on the two computers, the primary computer, where you have your songs stored in this case your G4, you can keep automatic. However, on your PowerBook, just keep it manual.

  • Using the Airport with an Xbox 360 and such

    Hey guys I'm thinking of buying a new Airport Extreme N for my home since my linksys router is being stubborn. I have an xbox 360 and i was wondering if it worked well with it. What i mean is it faster with the Extreme and is it very reliable. Thanks guys for helping me out and have a Merry Christmas. --- Vinny the Pooh

    I just got the Airport for Christmas and it only took a couple of minutes to set up with my xbox 360 and all of my computers connected right away. The signal is twice as good as the signal with my linksys router was. Much better for xbox live. Good luck

  • How do I use the cloud with multiple iPhones?

    I just got an iphone through work and I accidently added my 'personal' Apple ID on the account.  How do I remove it?  If I choose delete account will it effect my use of icloud for my personal phone?
    thanks

    Settings>iCloud, scroll to bottom of screen and tap Delete Account.  This will only disconnect the device from the account, it won't delete any data on icloud.  Then you can enter a different account ID if you want.

  • HT4859 What do I have to do to use the iCloud with a Mac having OS x 10.7.5?

    I get to the iCloud from System Preferences, but I can't get the mac to start backing up the Address Book or any thing else. I need an app that  replaces the Settings>iCloud>Backup & Storage panels of the "iCloud: Back and restore overview" document.
    I'm assuming that Mountain Lion has this app, but I'm not going to upgrade because users comments show that Mountain Lion is a dissaster, reminds me on Microsoft foibles or other times. 

    Hi,
    You may either add the device and the drivers will obtain via Software Update, for full functionality you may also install the full feature software from the HP site:

    Be sure to check the HP REcommended Software option while installing, reboot your Mac after the installation done and run Software Update.

    yeah i was thinking i will just turn on TC once a week, if thats possible, to do a weekly backup as thats what i normally do now, or backup after something important like editing family videos etc or doing business work
    i hope TC is user friendly though (as its coming from apple i guess it will be) and its easy to delete unwanted previous backups etc, do you think this will be the case please?
    thanks
    Currently, to delete anything in Time Machine, you just open it, and navigate to whatever you want to delete, highlight it, then select whether you want to delete it ONLY from that backup, of from ALL backups. I see no reason to believe that Time Machine will behave any differently for the Time Capsule than it does now.
    As for deleting a whole backup, one would suspect that you would go into your backup folder and delete it
    As for turning it on and off, yes that is an easy option(made even easier by last update 10.5.2). Turn it on, then select backup now, let it finish, tun it off.
    As mentioned there is an automation program out, but I have not seen/tried it. I just run Time Machine 24/7 personally.

    I am not 100% what isn't allowed.. but I am assuming you want to spread the backup across the two disks.. internal TC and 6TB external.. this is not possible.. It has to be one or the other. TC has no way to build a raid JBOD or anything else. Nor would you want to as that is the most likely to fail and kill your data.
    Let me add, backing up 6TB over USB on TC.. will be the most excruciating experience of your life.. cf child birth or passing kidney stones.. large ones.. being the male equivalent.

  • Can I use the airport extreme with my Mac OS X?

    Can I use the Airport Extreme with a Mac OS X  10.5?

    Yes. In addition to administer the latest version of the AirPorts, you would need AirPort Utility 5.5.3, which requires OS X 10.5.7 or later.

  • Can I connect multiple Mac's using the Airport Express?

    As subject. I have got an Intel iMac and a MacBook. Can I connect them using the Airport Express? Or in another word, to create a network among them that I can see the other Mac on one Mac?
    Sorry, if I raised a silly question. But really like to know.
    Many thanks in advance.

  • Using a seagate external drive with multiple macs

    i got a 1TB seagate external hard drive for backup and transfer purposes... it had a little program to help set it up and i set it up for use with mac and pc ( only onther option was stricty this computer.) it works on my computer and a pc but when i tried transfering files from another older mac i have it showed that i could only read on that computer...
    how can i get it to work with multiple macs...?

    I have the oldest macbook (1.83. 2 gigs ram, 60 gig internal hard drive)
    I have all my logic content on my external maxtor firewire 400 drive (usb 2.0 is actually faster than firewire 400) and everything is fine. the good thing is if your external drive has 7200rpm, but the ones with 5600rpm should do as well.
    Once you drag your apple loops to logic from your external drive, logic will remember for the next visit. And when you are opening a project which is on the external drive , just find it with logic finder and all should be fine.

    I can see my folders by clicking the X next to my name on the Inbox Folder.  So I have my folders now, just cannot see them in the left colum or see multiple windows on Outlook.  At this point, I can use the folders, just with limited functionality.  Thanks -Gina

  • Using the airport usb disk with playstation3...

    anyone know how i can get my PS3 to see the USB disk hooked up to my AE, and use it as a media share?
    I have a wireless-n AE, with a 250GB USB drive hooked up, and also a WD Mybook world edition 1TB server on a ethernet connection.
    all the macs in my house see the drives just fine, but everytime i search for a media share on the PS3, it says 'no media shares found'.
    i'm sure its a PS3 issue, but i was just wondering if anyone here has any experience with it, as i'm a complete noob when it comes to networking.
    thanks.

    a) WEP WPA password, ive never set one up for the airport, where do i find out what this password is for my PC?
    You will set up wireless security (WEP or WPA) on the AirPort Express Base Station (AX)..using the AirPort Admin Utility, which is part of AirPort for Windows.
    b) Everytime I run the Airport Express Assistant it gives me an error message saying "Windows is not the current network manager...please change Windows to the default", I dont know why I get this error and I assume windows is the one managing the networks I use.
    Your PC has wireless capability...correct? The AirPort Setup Assistant requires a wireless connection to the AX.
    c) I can connect to the airport through windows, but when in the Airport Management Utility it does not detect the Airport
    Connect your PC directly, using an Ethernet cable, to the Ethernet port of the AX, and then run the AirPort Admin Utility to configure it.
    d) After all this, will Windows and iTunes allow you to stream music thru the Airport Express, like it does on my mac with itunes???
    Yes, you will be able to stream iTunes from your PC to the AX, either wired or wirelessly.

  • How do you use Airport extreme at hotels etc, when traveling? I can plug my computer into the Airport with my ethernet but how does Airport pickup signal?

    How do you use Airport extreme at hotels etc, when traveling? I can plug my computer into the Airport with my ethernet but how does Airport pickup signal? What equipment & devices do I need to travel with to make this possible?

    You may mean the AirPort Express.....not AirPort Extreme.....as the Express is a popular travel router.
    The whole idea behind using this device is that the hotel must provide an Ethernet jack in the hotel room. Then you connect the AirPort Express to the Ethernet jack with an Ethernet cable and configure it to provide your own wireless network in the room. You still have to agree to terms, pay the fees, etc.
    The problem with this approach is that it is getting very difficult to find hotels in North America that prrovide an Ethernet jack....most have moved to wireless networks and the others are not far behind.
    So, if the hotel is already providing a wireless signal, the AirPort Express is of no use in that situation.
    If you normally stay at the same hotels, and know that they provide Ethernet ports, an AirPort Express might make sense in terms of convenience.

  • Can i use the airport express in my hotel with wired connection?

    I'm going to be traveling quite a bit coming up and staying in hotels with wired internet connections in the room.  Can i use the airport express to connect with the hotel's internet connection and then my ipad and/or iphone 4S?  I'm new to Apple products so will certainly appreciate any info that may help.  Thank you!

    You will need to have AirPort Utility installed on the iPad and/or iPhone. It is free on the App Store
    App Store - AirPort Utility
    Connect the AirPort Express 802.11n to the hotel Ethernet jack using an Ethernet cable
    Power up the AirPort Express and wait 40-45 seconds
    Tap Settings, then tap Wi-Fi on the iPad
    Tap the AirPort Express under the heading of Set up an AirPort Base Station
    AirPort Utility will take a moment to to analyze the connection and then you can proceed with the easy guided setup
    Once the AirPort Express is configured, you should not have to set it up again at the next hotel. But, you could if you want to.
