This is a new issue on an old setup. The mac was recently upgraded to maverick. thanks
Say no more.. upgrading to Mavericks.. any upgrade install is prone to issues.. the Mavericks one is the worst of any recent upgrades.
Lets just try and isolate the problem.
In the setup of the AE, give different names to the two wireless bands.. so go into the airport utility.. click the AE, Click edit.. click the wireless tab.. and now type in a new name.
Try AE24ghz
Then click the wireless options and change the name for the 5ghz..
Make it AE5ghz
Then update the AE.
In the computer.. select either band.. and see if your other clients are affected if they use the band that the Mac is not using.
Alternatively turn off wireless in the macbook and use ethernet.. oh please please have a Mac with an ethernet port.. otherwise buy a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter.. it is well worth having. wireless is never to be trusted.

  • HT1349 very slow external HDD and usb drive connected to Apple Extreme Router

    Hello
    So I got a western digital USB drive (500gig) and western digital Live 2TB.
    I bought a new Apple Extreme router and connected them both.
    USB drive and external hdd (WD Live 2TB) very slow when connected to Apple Extreme Router, using Lion 10.7 and updated both firmware for router, western digital and Airport Utility.
    Slow means, it takes half an hour to copy 200 Mb of file to the WD Live 2TB, and its connected to my router with a gigabit ethernet cable!
    Is someone else having the same problem, I thought even over usb I should get around 2-5mb range.
    I am using Macbook Pro and 802.11n with Lion 10.7.2
    Please Help

    The USB WD 500 gig is connected to the Airport Extreme using a non-powered USB 2.0 hub, only two things a HP printer and the 500 gig is connected through it. I already formatted it to MAC OS Extended Journalled. ANd I think the speed didnt change.
    For the WD 2TB Live I didnt format it to anything, started using it out of the box. I just updated its firmware. I was having the same speed even when I directly connected it to my Mac Book Pro using ethernet gigabit cable.
    This WD 2TB Live doesnt have any USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connectors, just the ethernet cable. I wasnt planning to carry it around. Just wanted to use it as a good ol NAS. So then I saw the fix somewhere and connected to this drive via AFP,  afp://MyBookLive._afpovertcp._tcp.local/Public and it become suddenly very fast. Just like how it should be, I easily copied 20 gigs in around 20-25 minutes. (This was dirctly connected to my computer)
    So then I thought my problem is solved and disconnected my WD Live and connected it back to the Apple Router again, and the speed became very slow again. Now both the USB 500 gig and this 2TB Live are slow.
    Time machine is also very slow.
    Thing is I also have a linux and windows machine(in repair, but should be up soon), Since apple is the newest computer I have, I want to make it work on this first. I dont want to use the MACosx journaled on the 2TB right now. Besides formatting the USB 500 gig to this format didnt help with my speed. So the problem can be elsewhere.
    - I will try to get a powered USB hub as woodmeister50 suggested.
    - I dont know how to connect via iCloud as cigame suggested
    Please let me know if you guys have any suggestions. I have tested and returned enough routers in past few weeks. I really want it to work on this combination LionOSX + Airport Extreme + WD Live.
    Thanks

  • How do I get the user name and password for the Apple Extreme Router to connect to a Slingbox

    How do I get the user name and password for the Apple Extreme Router to set up my Slingbox?  It will not accept the Apple Extreme Name and password.

    The AirPort Extreme does not have a User Name, but it does have a device name and device password, which you may have already tried.
    There is also a Wireless Network Name and Wireless Network Password for the AirPort Extreme, which might be what the Slingbox is looking for if you are trying to connect it to your wireless network.
    There are no other "user names" or "passwords" on the AirPort Extreme.
    You established the device name, device password, wireless network name and wireless network password when you originally configured the AirPort Extreme.
    If you cannot remember these, you will need to perform a Soft Rest to reset everything. Follow the instructions in this Apple support document:

  • Should I buy airport express, extreme or time capsule?  I have my new Mac Pro. 2 iPhones, 2 iPads , and grandchildren who come with their devices.  I live in a two-level house.

    Should I buy airport express, extreme or time capsule?  I have my new Mac Pro. 2 iPhones, 2 iPads , and grandchildren who come with their devices.  I live in a two-level house.

    A Time Capsule is an AirPort Extreme with a built in hard drive to allow your Mac(s) to back up automatically, so it's a logical choice if you need a wireless router and back up capabilities for your Macs
    The AIrPort Extreme has a bit better antenna arrangement than an AirPort Express, so it would be a good choice for a two level house.
    Depending on the location of the "main" wireless router, you may find that you still need to add an extender or two in other parts of the house for full, fast wireless coverage. The AirPort Express is a good choice for this duty.
    To compare the 3 Apple devices, see this Apple support document:
           Compare Apple Wi-Fi base stations          AirPort Express    AirPort Extreme    Time Capsule    

  • When adding an external hard drive, should you hook it up to your iMac or your Apple Extreme router?

    When adding an external hard drive, should you connect it directly to your iMac or to your Apple Extreme router?

    That depends on what you are using it for. The advantage of connecting it to the router is that you can share the drive over your home network and/or over the Internet. That can be convenient but drive access is performed at network speed - slower than when connected directly to the computer. If you need/want to share the drive, connect it to the router, otherwise connect it directly to the computer.

  • Hello, my name is Karan Taneja and i have been a loyal Apple customer. I have been using Apple since it introduced iphone 4 and have been upgrading/buying every new phone Apple introduces after that. I was always happy and surprized to see Apple doing so

    Hello, my name is Karan Taneja and i have been a loyal Apple customer.
    I have been using Apple since it introduced iphone 4 and have been upgrading/buying every new phone Apple introduces after that.
    I was always happy and surprized to see Apple doing so good to its customers.
    Unfortunately, i experienced some thing really unprofessional and different this time.
    It begun suddenly one day when i tried to charge my phone, the phone was on silent mode and as usual the phone vibrated when i kept it for charge.
    After a few seconds the phone vibrated twice or thrice again when i re-inserted the cable thinking it might be loose.
    It continued to charge well when i left the room for 2 hours and finally when i returned i could see a damaged i phone 5
    lying on the floor and the phone vibrating continuously and i figured out there was a fault with the cable and the
    current wasnt flowing continuously due to which the phone continued to vibrate and fell off the shelf.
    Next day i took the iphone to Apple service centre at Saket which was closed.
    Thinking its August 15 and so the store might be closed i went back to home and waited for the next day but unfortunately could not turn up since
    i had to go to work on odd timings.
    I again went to the same service centre on 17th August 2013 and saw the service centre closed again when i tried to contact
    the other service centre and was informed about Saket's service centre already been shut down.
    There was no hoarding/ banner any kind of intimation for the customers.
    Since 18th August was Sunday and i was occupied on 19th August i went to service centre at Ansal Plaza Khel Gaon Marg on
    20th August 2013 to complaint about the Faulty Cable and the damaged caused to my iphone 5 due to the same.
    I very well explained the same to one of the person at the receiving desk at the service centre who accepted the cable
    but explained me that he doesnt have the authority to accept my iphone without permission from the technical support people
    who will be able to help me in that case and gave me the toll free number.
    i Tried to reach the toll free number and finally managed to get online with a technical support executives who too all my details and
    summary of the problem i experienced and finally kept me on hold for almost 10 minutes ormore after which he said he said that my
    case cannot be considered and while the discussion was on, the call was disconnected and i was left frustrated as i still was at the service centre
    but finally i left with no hope from Apple .
    I tried to reach again at the toll free number, and finally managed to talk to a well behaved person who assured me of considering my case and suggested
    me to go back to the service centre and advice the the person at the recieving end there to get me connected to the technical support team when i reach so that i could
    submit my phone but, since, it was already around 4:30 and the service centre was about to shut and due to traffic
    conditions all around i thought of visiting the service centre next day.
    On 21st August 2013, i went back to the service centre and spoke to the one of the store person who adviced the case to the manager Mr. Alok ( as i remember )
    who was really rude to tell me that i will have to call the technical support team on my own and then he will connect and that its not his work and all that .
    I finally connected to one of the senior technical support executives Mr.Mohamed Azharuddin K who understood my concern and spoke to the manager of the store to accept
    my iphone.
    My iphone was finally collected and i was assured i would get a call back next day from the service centre about the update.
    It was now 22nd August 2013, no update was given,no call was received, i tried to call the service centre at 12:30, they were unaware about my case and knew only about the cable and said will call me
    back very shortly.
    I called back at 2:30, still no update, at 4:30 i called back again when i was told that my case cannot be considered and i can collect my phone.
    Similar discussion was held with Mr.Mohamed Azharuddin K.
    I knew by the time i will reach the service centre would again close.
    He told me that my case cannot be considered since the cable was recieved in the dead condition and wasnt working at all unlike what i told him about the cable.
    On 23th August 2013, i went back to the service centre and collected my phone. When i asked about my old cable and told them that it was working and i wanted the technician
    to check it properly when i handed it over, they had no answer but to say its already shipped. I spoke to the manager who said that he never told any body that the cable
    was received in dead condition and he only conveyed to other authorities that the cable had fault .
    I finally dont know what to do and came back with the new cable.
    I just visited my time, petrol and parking charges in getting the cable replaced.
    If i calculated i have spent around 16 hours and 2000 worth of money in just getting the cable replaced and have a broken phone in hand.
    More than a weeks torture.
    Is that the way apple compensates for its fault ????????????????
    I will make sure that i never buy any thing from Apple and advice all the people i know to not trust Apple blindly.

    Wow, Karan Taneja, you've just embarrassed yourself on a worldwide support forum.  Not only is your post ridiculous and completely inappropriate for a technical support forum, but it also shows your ignorance as to whom you think the audience is.  Apple is not here.  It's users, like you. 
    If you would have spent half the time actually reading the Terms of Use of this forum that YOU agreed to by signing up to post, as you did composing that usesless, inappropriate post, you (and the rest of us on this forum) would have been much better off.

    Mov is a container format, you'd need to look at the codec used by the movie file inside the container to know whether it will work with the Apple TV or not.

    If so start here
    Follow the Account management options until you are offered and email contact.
    Explain the issue via email as only someone in Support can now remove your iPhone Number from iMessages if it has not "de-registered" itself correctly.

When I try to download apps to my new iPad Mini, it tells me my billing info has to be confirmed. After confirming with same info that is already there it tells me to contact support, no help up to this point.

    Could the credit card be expired?
    Beyond that, what you need to do is contact iTunes support, they can tell you exactly what is wrong, none of us here can do that.
    In the lower right corner of this page is a 'contact us' link. Click on that and you'll see a page full of info and links, one of which is iTunes support.

    You're welcome.
    Once again, the Find My iPhone app has no effect on this.
    Find My iPhone must be enabled with your iCloud account settings on the iPhone.
    Location Services must be enabled.
    The iPhone must be connected to the internet via an available wi-fi network or via the carrier's cellular network.
    If the iPhone is powered off, none of the Find My iPhone features can work, and the same if the thief or whoever has access to the iPhone has restored the iPhone with iTunes as a new iPhone on another computer.

  • I'm running Windows 7 and iTunes and the other Apple programs wouldn't automatically update. Went through all the options and finally had to delete all Apple files and re-download iTunes. Worked fine, until the next update. Is there a glitch in the system

    I'm running Windows 7 and iTunes (and the other Apple programs) wouldn't automatically update. Went through all the options and finally had to delete all Apple files and re-download iTunes. Worked fine, until the next update. Is there a glitch in the system? Does someone know of some proprietory block (I think it is related to Quicktime)? Also, once I re-downloaded everything, cleaned everything up, and deleted duplicate files, I closed down my computer. When I re-started it, iTunes was "brand new" -- all of my music, organization, tagging, etc. was gone and had to start over. Idea?

    Ok, so after like 4 days of going through all these different issues, I figured out that several programs weren't downloading, and it was an issue with my wireless connectivity messing up the digital signatures, so if you plug in your comp to the modem and delete your temp files, it should start to work!
