Can't connect to Internet via Airport but CAN via Ethernet

Yeah so I have tried TWO different of my AX's and can not connect to the internet via EITHER even though Network Status says "you are connected to the internet via Airport". But, if I hook the ethernet cable directly to the computer from the modem it connects to the internet fine. What am I missing. Oh yeah, and on one of the AX's the "music" tab does not appear next to the "WDS" tab thus not allowing AirTunes on that AX, any ideas on that too? PLEASE HELP!!

CONNECTED!! After resetting the modem, llike you suggested, I am able to get the wireless network back up and running, BUT...I am still having problems with one base station not showing the "music" tab and thus not letting me stream music to it. When I hit "configure" the tab shows for a quick second then disappears. Any idea?

  • Help! Can't connect to internet on apps but can on safari

    Whenever i try to go on youtube or facebook app it says i cant connect, however i can still connect to the internet on safari and on the app store (except for the featured section)
    Ive tried:
    Restaring ipod
    Forgetting wifi
    Restarting router
    Please help!

    Did it work before when connected to this network?
    A network can be configured to block specified networks.
    Does it work when connect to another network like  StarBucks since those usually do not block sites.

  • Can't connect to internet through Airport Express anymore

    Suddenly, my PowerBook can't connect to the internet through Airport Express. Monday late afternoon--everything was fine. Put it in sleep, come back a few hours later, can't connect.
    Thing is, Airport/wireless is working. Can stream audio to my home stereo.
    And the DSL/modem are working. If I connect the machine via ethernet directly, I'm online.
    Saw that some other users began having problems with USB/printer connections Monday. Could my problem be related?
    What gives?
    Any ideas?

    Hello mnkyby. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    It sounds like your AirPort Express Base Station (AX) in not getting a proper IP address from your modem.
    Try this ...
    o Connect to the AX's wireless network, and then, run the AirPort Admin Utility.
    o Go to the Internet tab.
    o Note the value for IP address. (Note: Do not list it here on the forum, just note what it is.)
    o Is the IP address what you would expect from your ISP or is it something like: 196.254.x.x?
    If the latter, try the following ...
    Modem/Router Power Recycling - Quick
    o Power-off the DSL/Cable modem, AX, & computer(s); Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the DSL/Cable modem; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the AX; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the computer(s)
    If this fails to get the modem to "recognize" the Internet router, then try the "Full" version.
    Modem/Router Power ReCycling - Full
    o Power-off the DSL/Cable modem, AX, & computer(s). (Wait at least 30 minutes. If possible, leave the modem off overnight.)
    o Power-on the DSL/Cable modem; Wait at least 15 minutes.
    o Power-on the AX; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the computer(s)

  • My mac mini will connect via airport but not via ethernet.

    I have had a mac mini for several months which I connect via ethernet because it is in a part of my house where the wireless signal is poor. I changed ISP and now I can connect to the router wirelessly but not via ethernet. This doesn't seem to be a problem with the network as the connection works when I connect it to my mac book. Firewall is turned off. There were no major changes to the router settings other than changing the ISP login codes.
    Any ideas? Is this a configuration issue or a hardware problem?

    Hi Mick,
    If your router only supports 10/100 ethernet then it is possible that the auto-detect feature is not working properly to adjust to that speed. The mini has a Gigabit ethernet port. The OS by default sets the port to automatically negotiate the rate but it does not always work and the result is the problem you are having.
    To fix it you wlll have to manually set the rate to 100.
    To do this, open your system preferences, Select Network. Highlight the ethernet port on the sidebar, click the advanced button. Click on the Ethernet Tab, set the configure pop-up menu item to 100baseTX and click the ok button. If all works out you should see that the Ethernet port icon should turn green.
    Hope this helps.

  • Mac connected but PC can't connect to internet through Airport Extreme

    When I was using a dial-up connection everything worked fine on both computers but since I changed to a PPPoE / Ethernet connection my PC using Windows XP can't connect to the internet although is connected to the Airport with excellent signal.
    In System Preferences>Network I have Connect using PPPoE option checked so I can't see my airport in the Airport Admin Utility. Apple Talk is Inactive.
    In System Preferences>Sharing>Internet: Internet sharing is Off and there's a text that it can't be turned on "because there are no ports available over which to share your connection"

    I understand, but for some reason, that I'm trying to
    figure out, when I uncheck the PPPoE option on my
    computer and my base station appears in the Admin
    utility, I loose my internet connection on the
    macintosh although the Network Status says that I'm
    connected to the internet via Airport...
    You will need to configure the Airport to connect via PPPoE.

  • Can't connect to internet through airport extreme but have full signal

    I've seen a lot of posts but I still can't connect wirelessly via airport extreme.
    Using a Powerbook running 10.6.4, I have updated the airport extreme's firmware and have a full signal strength, but I can't connect to the internet.
    I get an error message that it can't find the server.
    I can get online if I connect the internet cable directly to my computer.
    Airport is working

    That's not possible. Do you mean "MacBook"?
    I ... have a full signal strength, but I can't connect to the internet.
    First try resetting your connection settings using the steps listed in this message:
    They're not guaranteed to solve the problem, but they'll only take a minute or so to try.
    If that doesn't help, connect to your wireless network, then open the Network panel of System Preferences. Select the AirPort connection item, click on the "Advanced" button, then on the "TCP/IP" tab. What do you see for the three values below "Configure IPv4"? Now click on the "DNS" tab. What do you see for "DNS Servers"?
    Finally, type this URL in the address bar of your browser:
    and press "return". Does that take you to Google? If so, there's something wrong with the way your computer or router is handling DNS lookups.

  • Can't connect to internet through Airport network

    Previously - worked
    Internet: DSL
    Network: via Airport Extreme
    Computers: 3 (G4 Tower, PowerBook G4, Xbox360)
    Setup: I ran the ethernet cable out of the modem into the Aiport Extreme. Then I ran another ethernet cable into a router which then split the signal into two lines -- one going to the tower and one going to the Xbox. The laptop connected wirelessly. This worked using DHCP assigning multiple IP addresses to all on the network and indeed the two computers surfed the net with ease and I had no problems connecting or staying on Xbox Live.
    Currently - doesn't work
    Internet: Cable (Charter)
    Network: same
    Computers: same
    Problem: I recently switched from DSL to Cable internet for faster speed. Here is what i found: When i connect the ethernet cable directly into the tower from the modem i can access the internet. If i connect the ethernet cable directly into the PowerBook G4 i get nothing. If i try to connect the ethernet cable to the Airport from the modem i get nothing as well. At first all i thought i had to do was change the account settings from that of the DSL to that of the Cable internet -- only there are no account settings for the Cable internet. I literally just plugged in the cable and was ready to go. I have tried resetting my airport to get rid of my previous [DSL] settings and redoing the Airport Setup Assistant to no avail.
    G4 Tower, PowerBook G4   Mac OS X (10.3.9)  

    ok so i unplugged my modem for a few minutes and then plugged the ethernet into the airport and turned the modem back on. now i can get internet on both my laptop and my tower. that works, thanks!
    an odd aside tho is that before, when i was connecting through PPPoE, the laptop would automatically connect to my network (regardless of how many networks the airport card was picking up). now that i have the airport set to just connect via ethernet i have to manually log onto my network every time. is there a setting i'm forgetting about that enables automatic log in or is this just the case with connecting via ethernet?
    here is the next problem, though. i bought a wireless adapter for my 360 and it cannot detect my network. it detects two other different networks that are in my complex but not mine. i have no idea if this is an airport issue or a 360 issue as powerbooks just automatically detect an airport base station. i have tried testing it in the same room as the airport with no luck. the only way i have connected to Xbox Live so far was to hard line an ethernet cable to the 360, shut the modem off, turn it back on and connect that way. if anyone knows anything about the 360 or has had similar problems trying to get their 360 up and running wirelessly through an airport please let me know

  • Can't connect to Internet using airport

    I am trying to connect to internet wirelessly, using my Airport Extreme (802.11n), but it won't work. When I use the ethernet cable directly to my MacBook Pro (as I am now) internet comes fine. I have done many tests, change configuration, but nothing works. I really don't know what the problem is and what to do.
    Thks for helping,

    Just as an update, I have been able to reestablish connection by resetting the airport base.

  • Can't connect to computer on network but can share screen

    I've got a MBP 2.4 that I can't connect to another MBP or a Mac Pro on our home network (Airport Extreme router). I can share the screen but I can't connect. The other computers can connect and share into the 2.4. I can't figure this out since all of the settings are all the same.

    I was able to get it to connect after turning off the file sharing and then turning it back on the Mac Pro. Strange why it didn't work before.

  • Why can I not get Internet or email but can Skype?

    Can use Skype but can't get Internet or email on my MacBook pro - no problems at all with iPad or iPhone getting onto wifi.
    No proxies, deleted & recreated airport network.
    Reset by BT home hub.
    Any ideas?

    Skype is probably set to start when you boot your computer. It could be the culprit as it has a tendency to steal a lot of bandwidth from other applications. Try disabling it on startup by going to System Preferences under Accounts, then to Login Items, and by removing Skype from the list (you can add it back later). Reboot your Mac and tell us if you still have problems browsing the Web or sending/receiving email.

  • Can't Connect to Internet using AirPort Extreme Card and DLink Router

    I have tried just about everything, but I can't seem to connect my MAC OS X 10.3.9 to the internet. I am using the Airport Extreme Card and no networks show up. I am trying to connect to my DLink router. I was told by DLink that it is compatible with AirPort Extreme cards, but the guys at Best Buy were unable to connect to their wireless routers, other than their Mac Router. Please let me know if you have a solution! Thanks

  • IMac G5 Can't Connect to Internet over Airport

    I have an iMac G5 that has been working fine on my Airport Extreme wireless network for 3 years. Suddenly, I can no longer access the internet over my Airport connection. The computer is on my local Airport network wirelessly (I can access it from my laptop and share files). I can connect to the internet from 4 other computers connected to the same wireless Airport network (2 MacBook Pro's, 1 Powermac G4). In addition, if I connect my iMac to my laptop via a twisted pair ethernet cable and turn on internet sharing on my laptop, my iMac can connect to the internet. All systems are running 10.5.5 and no firewalls in place. I checked my internet preferences and they have not been changed from what they were before when it was working. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHY SUDDENLY IT STOPPED CONNECTING TO THE INTERNET OVER MY WIRELESS AIRPORT CONNECTION?

  • Able to connect via airport but not via ethernet since fresh install

    New format and reinstall of OS X. Software update to 10.4.5. Now I need to use ethernet and I get an error. I did NOT have ethernet attached when doing the install.
    This used to work before the reinstall. I have tried different cables and different ports attached to the D-Link router (I use DSL).
    Other computers on the net (iMac G5 via ethernet and Windows via Wireless) have no problems.
    I have tried the network assistant, renewing DHCP lease (which does not work), manual config, ifconfig up and down and even tried to reapply the 10.4.5 update but to no avail. I have even rebooted (Ugh) several times.

    What now? - I really don't feel like reinstalling with en0 connected just to fix this
    Thanks for any advice

    I would attempt to find a Windows machine to set it up as Samsung's Mac software is abysmal.
    However I have found this step by step on an Amazon review, I don't know if it will work:
    1. Setup the physical printer machine according to manual. Then connect it your Macbook via USB. Make sure the printer is powered on and verify the Macbook is powered on with wireless network Access.
    2. Insert the supplied software CD and double click on the CD from your desktop.
    3. Double click and execute to Mac_installer folder >Installer OS X icon.
    4. Complete the license agreement and installation steps.
    5. This will be a standard install without the wireless option. This is your only option. You will not be given a chance to do the wireless installation like in the Windows version install.
    6. Enter in the admin password to install the software.
    7. Once the software confirmation screen pops up to confirm your installation was successful, proceed to DISconnect your USB connection to you Samsung Printer.
    8. In case you missed it, Disconnect the USB connection between your Samsung printer and Macbook.
    9. Navigate to Applications > Utilities >Print Setup Utility  (For Mac OS X 10.5 - 10.7) Navigate to Applications > System preferences > Print & Fax.
    10. Click Add on the printer list (For Mac OS X 10.5 - 10.7, click the PLUS sign) and new display will pop up.
    11. On the "Default" Tab of the pop up display, select or highlight the Samsung printer. In the printer name column, it should be listed as "Samsung ML-2160 Series (NNNN)", then in the Kind column, It should be listed as "Bonjour"
    Note: DO NOT select the Samsung Printer with the "USB" in the Kind column. This Samsung printer - USB option should only be selected if you intend to print from USB.
    12.  Click ADD, then select continue to create the print queue.
    13.  Now open up any word document with text and print a test page.
