Using USB modem with a macbook

I use a vodafone usb modem to connect to the internet , and i am currently trying to download a torrent using Azureus , but my download speed has never been higher than 10kB/s.
Does any one know how to configure a usb modem to Azureus so the speed can improve. Or does anyone know another software which works better with usb modems ... help.

My speeds are related to signal strength just like my phone coverage which is relatively the same thing because the usb modem is a phone of sorts. In urban areas, the strength is much stronger than in rural areas but for the most part, I am very happy with Verizon. I've found that the device is not as important as the provider and the quality of their network.
To me, the ability to use my machine anywhere I choose is appealing regardless of the speed.

    I get the following error message when I connect a usb ethernet adapter to my new MacBook Pro: Unsupported - You cannot use an Apple USB Modem with this computer. I live where we only have dial-up and the Apple Store said this is what I need. In addition, when I connect the phone to the connecter it falls out, it will not click in.

    Why are you using a usb ethernet adaptor? Just plug the modem into the usb port.

  • Can I use an USB disc with my macbook pro bought in 2005.  What capacity will it take 2.00 or 3.00?

    The first MacBook Pro's were not released until the beginning of 2006, and they had USB 2 ports.
    Anything available new in 2005 would have been a PowerBook G4 and they also had USB 2 ports.
    A USB 3 disk will just transfer data slower then it could do, if you plug it into a USB 2 port though, so you can buy either.

  • Using Firewire devices with your MacBook

    My wife recently purchased a new MacBook and decided that she wanted to try editing video from our camcorder. We have a Sony DCR-HC26 with firewire and USB 2.0 ports. If necessary, we can use the software provided by Sony and the USB port to import the video but Sony says that the video quality is much better using the firewire port. Unfortunately, Apple chose not to provide a firewire port on the new MacBook and there are no ports for installing a card. Is anyone aware of options available to use firewire devices with your MacBook? It seems as though this would be a common problem given the number of legacy firewire devices out there. I researched adapters but the only one I found is currently only supported by Windows XP and that doesn't do us any good. Thanks for the help.

    The current white Macbook and the Macbook Pro has Firewire.

    There are no USB to Firewire adapters. (Desperate aluminum Macbook owners are looking, but it can't be done.) Firewire MUST be in the computer.

  • I can not use CanoScan N670U with my Macbook pro. I download canoscan toolbox 4.1 from Cannon website. It keep saying "the scanner plug-in was not found". Please help

    I can not use CanaScan N670U with my Macbook Pro. I download Canoscan toolbox 4.1 from Cannon websit. It still keep saying "The scanner plug-in was not found". Please help

    There is a solution (I'm running Snow Leopard on a Core2Duo iMac, but this problem arose when I was running Leopard on a G4 PowerBook too).
    Problem:
    You download the OS X driver for the scanner from Canon's site. I already had the CanoScan Toolbox (4.1) stored on an external drive.
    You unzip the driver and run the VISE installer. After a search it finds your copy of Photoshop (and maybe even the CanoScan Toolbox), and you click to install on that/those location(s).
    You get a couple of error messages, which you click through.
    You restart your computer and try to run the scanner but you get an error that the driver is wrong or missing and the process will abort.
    Solution:
    BEFORE you restart, and with the installer package still open -
    1. Copy the Into_CFMSupport_Login & Into_CMPrefs folders to
    Applications : Canon Utilities
    Applications : Canoscan Toolbox
    and remove the prefix Into_ from each folder
    2. Check whether the installer placed N067U_Library.shlb into the top level (not User level)
    Library : CFMSupport
    and if it didn't, move it there yourself
    THEN restart, and try again. It worked for me (via Photoshop), but whether it will work for everyone, I don't know.

  • Can I use Bluetooth earphones with my Macbook Pro?

    Can I use Bluetooth earphones with my Macbook Pro?
    If so, are there any problems and/or limitations in doing so? (i.e. no stereo sound, or anything else?).

    Can you use Bluetooth earphones simultaneously with the Magic Mouse (which is also Bluetooth)?
    And, just out of curiosity, why can't you use the Bluetooth earphones on an airplane?

    Sounds like a bug in Macbook pro. May be bug in the cable? Everything bugged up on you.

  • I'm using Logic 9 with a Macbook Pro. On one project I'm getting a message ' not enough processor power.' I've tried freezing all tracks but this seems to have no effect. I've also bounced all soft synths to audio.

    I've tried freezing all tracks but this has no effect. I've also bounced all soft synth tracks to audio, but to no avail. The computer stops playing
    even at the start of the track where there is nothing but a kick drum happening.......

    Thank you for the suggestions.
    I had previously tried all of the above but the airport/wireless thought. Unfortuneately, none of these things made a difference, including the wireless suggestion.
    Currently, I am using my Mac's "cheapo" internal audio hardware  (haha). I have a one year old 27-inch iMac,  a good pair of bose speakers, and a polk sub. I don't believe it is an issue with my setup, considering I completely disconnected and unplugged it.
    I did, however, do a little info hunting on the internal audio situation, since I was curious what is actually included, and I stumbled upon this interesting little tidbit about my model of iMac:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2718054?start=0&tstart=0
    I had previously wondered if I was hearing my mouse in my speakers as well (not just in logic). It appears that this model of iMac may have some grounding issues, as someone later in the thread suggested purchasing and using a ground loop isolator, which seemed to fix any extra interference for them.
    Ironically though, I have since opened logic, and do not seem to be encountering my previous static issue(yet).
    Fingers crossed, hoping that I will not be experiencing it again. Going to purchase a ground loop isolator, and continue to mess around with logic, just to make sure it was not just an internal audio issue with my iMac.

  • If I use the remote with two macbooks in the same room both of them answer

    If I use the remote with two macbooks in the same room, the two of them answer. So if the person sitting near me is doing something else I interrupt them... this is quite annoying!
    Does anyone know how to solve this? Should I report it as a bug? Where?

    Hi Carito,
    It is not a bug, all you have to do is pairing them.
