I have just acquired an iMac desktop (about 4 years old). I want to connect to my Apple airport wireless network, but cannot remember the password. How can I access the password or, if necessary, reset it. I already use a MacBook Pro and an iPad on the network and don't want to jeopardize what already works well. I am not all that computer literate.

How can I access the password or, if necessary, reset it.
Read the user manual that came w/your Airport router or you can cross-post in one of the  AirPort Forums for instructions.

  • I have a new MacBook Pro, and existing iPad 2 and iphone.

    I have a new MacBook Pro, and existing ipad 2 and iphone 4s. icloud was already set up on the iphone and ipad, and it is now set up on the MacBook Pro.  However, when I make an entry in one device, it does not populate the other two devices.  Also, all my podcasts and music did not populate itunes in the computer.  What am I missing?

    Could you please confirm what it is you are making an entry in, that isn't syncing (address book, iCal etc)
    Is there any reason you think iTunes should automatically fill your library for you.

  • I have a MacBook pro and an IPAD.  My MacBook gets wi fi but my IPAD does not ... and yet both have been connecting to the Internet for four years. Why isn't my IPAD connecting now?

    I have a macbook pro and an ipad ... both have which regularly connected to the web through my airport for two years ... now, my ipad won't connect ... and the genius bar says my ipad is ok. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the cause and the cure?

    Can your iPad connect to other Wi-Fi networks? If so, is it possible that you may have configured your AirPort to restrict access to the iPad by including the iPad's MAC address in the AirPort's Timed Access Control settings?

  • I have just bought a 2nd hand MacBook pro and need to wipe the previous owners details. How do I do that?

    Hiya, so I've got this old MacBook Pro and need to wipe the admin user but have no password to work with. Can anyone tell me the easiest way to get rid of her and set myself up please? Thanks.

    You will need the original Tiger installation disks.  Insert the install disk, open Disk Utility from the UTILITIES menu, erase the HDD and inatall the OSX.  That will create your own Apple ID.  The second option is to use a retail Leopard or Snow Leopard disk instead, but they do not come with all of the applications.

  • Trying to set up iCloud on my MacBook Pro, and I get to the point where it tells me to view my email for further instructions to verify acct, but I have no email in my inbox, even after resending multiple times.

    Trying to set up iCloud on my MacBook Pro, and I get to the point where it tells me to view my email for further instructions on verification of my account, but there is no such email in my inbox, even after submitting multiple requests to resend the email. Any idea what I can do? Mark

    Well, running on a 2006 model.  I did not have a startup disc.  Initially, it booted up on original software in 2006.  Since then, I've upgraded to 10.6 via a box set.  And, since then I think I popped it up to lion. 
    All I have on a disc is snow leopard.  And, I can't get farther than the setup screen due to hard drive.  I'm taking to a apple authorized repair store right now.  We'll see what they tell me .  I'm just going to weigh the cost of repair vs. buying new.
    Another bad, stupid thing is I had no means of backing up my stuff.  So, I might have lost things like music, vids, etc.  we'll see if they can recover.  If the cost is too much for repair I might just forget it and start over with a new system.  Just not sure at this point.

  • I am switching over from a PC to a MacBook Pro and an iPad.  How do I import my Outlook contacts into MacBook and iPad?

    I am switching over from a PC to a MacBook Pro and an iPad.  How do I import my Outlook contacts into MacBook and iPad?

    One option is forwarding your Outlook contacts as vCard files which can be imported by the Address Book on your Mac, followed by being synced with your iPad.
    In Outlook, select all contacts and at the menu bar select forward as vCard. Each contact will be a separate vCard file. Send the email to an email account you are accessing with the Mail app on your Mac.
    Save the attached vCard files in a folder created on your Desktop or in whichever chosen location for the folder. At the Address Book menu bar, go to File and select Import navigating to the folder that incudes the vCard files. Open the folder to select.

  • After having yet another problem with my MacBook Pro and having to wipe the drive, I am now unable to sync my iPhones etc without erasing all the music on them. Is there a way around this? I have no other library!

    After having yet another problem with my MacBook Pro and having to wipe the drive, I am now unable to sync my iPhones etc without erasing all the music on them. Is there a way around this? I have no other library!
    iTunes is a mess! It couldn't find it's own libraries and I was forced to create a new one. Now I don't know where my music is or if any's missing.

    How crap is that?
    It's not crap at all.
    It's not that simple. For example, I've 3500 songs on my MacBook but don't want them all on my phone, so I have to manually select each song again???
    There has to be a solution.
    Why not simply make a playlist with the songs you want on the iPhone?
    and maintain a current backup of your computer.

    try disabling email scanning for incoming mail.
    One of the last things that occurs is the mail server and Thunderbird sign off on "where we are up to" and Thunderbird stores this state information in the popstate.dat file in your profile (there is one in each POP mail account folder). If the anti virus, or you for that matter, end the conversation a few seconds early that hand off does not occur and the popstate is not stored.

    either something got damaged when you installed the hard drive or you need to perform a pram reset (other possibilites could have occured, these are the ones I think)

  • Graphic card problem maybe? Since when I have changed the hard drive to my macbook pro and I installed all the new softwares, my mac is very slow and the screen gives crazy pictures,could maybe be the graphic card, does anybody have experienced this?

    Graphic card problem maybe? Since when I have changed the hard drive to my macbook pro and I installed all the new softwares, my mac is very slow and the screen gives crazy pictures,could maybe be the graphic card, does anybody have experienced this?

    after a restart it works for a time, but always slow. I went to the Applestore this afternoon and the made a check and said it would be the logicboard and they would have to change it for CHF 600 and it would be ready in 10 - 15 days

  • I am using a MacBook Pro and am trying to print double sided copies on the HP Deskjet 3054 that came with it. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    I am using a MacBook Pro and am trying to print double sided copies on the HP Deskjet 3054 that came with it. Can anyone tell me how to do this? I am a total MacBook nube and can use any help you may offer! Thank you so much.

    How you enable double-sided printing can depend on the applications from whick you wish to print. Example: if I print to my HP PhotoSmart  from Safari, I get this print dialog box:
    (Edit: OOPS! Note that I forgot to switch printers when i took the scene-shots, so ignore the "Brother" reference. It's should look the same for your HP.
    Note the selection labled "Safari" near the bottom. If I change that form "safari to "Layout: I get this:
    Note the option for two-sided printing appears for your selection. If I print from Word, the box is different:
    The "Copies & Pages" option can be changed to "Layout" when you click it, again allowing the selection of two-sided printing.
    If you tell us what applciaiton is vexing you, we may be able to give better-focused information.

    1. I ran software update and am up to date. Does this mean that my yet to be activated Boot Camp ap is also up to date?
    There are 4 confusing pages of updates listed at Apples website for Boot Camp. I am having a hard time understanding what I need and don't need. For example, what version of Boot Camp do I have? I have Boot Camp Assistant version 3.0.4. Does this mean I have Boot Camp ver 3?
    You have Mac OS X Snow Leopard, so you are going to use Boot Camp 3 on Windows. After installing Windows 7 on your MacBook, insert the Snow Leopard DVD and install the Boot Camp drivers from here. Then, as the Boot Camp drivers that your Snow Leopard disc contain are outdated, open Apple Software Update on Windows to install the most recent Boot Camp drivers.

    2. The printed Boot Camp instructions do not explain the process of using downloaded Windows drivers; the instuctions only refer to drivers on the original disks. I have the original install disks from around mid 2010 but I am sure many things have been updated by now. Wouldn't the best idea be to download and install? But the instructions only cover using the original disks. How do I use downloaded drivers?
    On Snow Leopard, you can only download the Boot Camp drivers for the Late 2010 MacBook Air. On Lion and Mountain Lion, you have to download the Boot Camp drivers for all the computers. If you try to download the Boot Camp drivers on Snow Leopard with your computer, you will get a message telling that there aren't any drivers to download for your MacBook Pro
