Having trouble with the ethernet cable

Hello-
All of the sudden the ethernet cable I have been using for my MacBook Pro seems to be causing trouble with my streaming, especially when watching live online streams like from CBS New.com, MSNBC, etc. I had not had any trouble until recently but when I push the ethernet cable in a little bit the stream seems to pick up. This also did happen the last time I installed the latest Flash update. When I do the Software Update, it goes OK, it just seems to be the live video streams.
I thought I would get a new ethernet cable since I do not know how to hook up my Airport Extreme with the odd set up where I am staying.
Is there a better kind of ethernet cable or does it matter what kind I get? any recommendations on a good ethernet cable (brand) I should try?
I would uninstall the latest Flash update, but every time I mess around with Flash it causes trouble, but not the kind of trouble I am having now.

Moved the AEBS (g) downstairs
That's probably what caused your problems.
Here are my questions:
1) Would replacing the AEBS (g) with an Express (n) solve the problem?
No.
The weakness is in the connection between the main base station and the remote (in this case the AEBS (g).
If you got an Airport Express 802.11n, it would improve the connectivity if it operated in 802.11n mode. However as you have none-802.11n devices which use wireless (ie the iPhones) then you would need to operate in 802.11g mode and therefore the weakness would still be there.
2) Would ADDING an Express (n) be better?
See above.
If everything was 802.11n then yes, otherwise no.
3) Would we be better off buying the wireless adapter for the xbox, rather than plugging it in with ethernet?
If you moved the AEBS back to its original location then I expect yes it would.

    I am having trouble with the initial connection of the apple tv. I have isolated the problem to the cable/connection. My new hdmi cable has a resolution up to 1080p...does the resolution matter?is this the right hdmi cable for the apple tv?

    There are only two types of HDMI cables (standard and high speed - listen to all 1.2, 1.3 etc etc nonsense they will try to tell in the store) both types will work with the Apple TV.
    The cable may be faulty though, have you got another to try, what exactly is happening.

    trying to connect time  capsule to macbook air with the ethernet cable in the WAN port but the airport utility doesn't detect it but when i put it in the LAN one it does but it doesn't let me configure
    any ideas?

    Isn't it fun trying to do things without an ethernet cable direct to the computer.. Apple sell a usb to ethernet adapter cable fairly cheap.. makes life a lot easier having something to do hard connections.. or as hard as usb can manage.
    Since you have to access the TC by wireless .. press and hold the reset button on the TC for about 10sec until front led flashes rapidly.. don't worry about the ethernet cable.. leave it disconnected.
    Now click on the airport symbol and join another network. The TC should revert to its home name.. which will be a combo of Time Capsule and its MAC address. There is no wireless security and you can do the setup.

    Is PE10 compatible with Windows 8? Having trouble with the organizer

    It does sound very Watch Folders-esque, however, it seems strange that there are many folders involved. Are all the folders under a single parent folder perhaps? If so, you could try renaming or moving that folder. Additionally, to clarify, all 60 files are images, correct?
    Additionally, you can try creating a new catalog, just to see if that lets you in. Hold down the Shift key while launching the Organizer. If you get the timing right, the Catalog Manager will appear.

    If you are saying that after signing into iCloud it is telling you device is not found, it could be for any number of reasons. If the battery is dead, if the SIM has been removed, or if someone else has the phone and they have restored it, it will not be shown. Also, if you located it once and then sent a remote wipe, it disables the abililty to locate the phone with Find My iPhone.

    I am having trouble with the cache in bridge.  When i open I get a message saying bridge has encountered a problem reading the cache try purging in the central cache to correct the situation.  I did that but now when I try to get to the folders where my photos are stored bridge never gets to where I can work.  The message appears "building criteria" and I get an endless loop on the lower left panel.  How do I correct?

    You correct it by leaving Bridge alone until it finishes rebuilding its cache, overnight if necessary.

  • Is there an easy way to switch between ehternet and wifi connection without having to disconnect the ethernet cable?

    Hi All
    Was wondering if there is an easy way to switch between ethernet and wifi connection on Apple TV without having to disconnect the ethernet cable. The reason I ask is that I find it quicker to use my ethernet connection via a Netgear Powerline Home Theatre Set-up to stream Trailers and Movies on the Apple TV, however this is no good when connecting directly to my Mac to stream music or TV shows in iTunes, so revert to the wifi connection that I created on my Time Capsule to do this.
    Would be handy if Apple TV had a menu option where you could manually change the connection type depending on what you were doing, as per above scenario.
    Cheers
    Brett

    I'm having trouble with the develop module in LR5.4. Any adjustments are taking effect, but only viewable in the filmstrip, not on the main photo. The navigator will go grey, as does the main area too. This applies to all edits done in develop module. I have posted several times on the forum with no responses to address this, and have seen others with the same issue. I have even gone as far as to do a complete re-install of LR5, with no success. I'm at a loss, and I depend on it for so much editing. Please help.

  • Anyone having trouble with the new update for 2010 mac book air 10.8.2?

    Anyone having trouble with the new update for 2010 mac book air 10.8.2 ? My 2010 Macbook Air has crashed 15times since the 10.8.2 update. Have only once since owning it.

    Turned out the hardware was bad.  Apple exchanged it for a new Mac Air and the new trackpad works great.  Thank goodness it was a defect.  If the trackpads all worked like that I would have been bummed.

  • I'm having trouble with the MTS MT2S convertor.

    I’m having trouble with the MTS MT2S convertor. On my video camera (I have a Panasonic HC-V500 full HD 1920x1080) I’ve recorded in HD and when I use the MTS convertor to change the file type I select the HD option it’s a quicktime .mov file type and when it has finished converting the quality of the video goes to a lower quality and the colours aren’t vibrant like shown on the original recording on my camera. It also looks slightly grainy. So my question is which HD file type should I be choosing? As I no there’s a few but unsure which is best to use. I have also changed quality to original and didn’t make a difference on the quicktime .mov file type. I wasn’t sure if theres anything else on there I’m meant to be adjusting? As the software didn’t come with any instructions on how to use it. Just to mention i upload my videos to youtube so i want them to be in HD but i use iMovie as my editing software before i upload to youtube and i no avi file format isn't supported in iMovie.

    Its a 64 bits.
