    I  have two sons with ipod touch 4th gen. One has access to our wifi, the other does not. Any ideas????

    Try manually entering/searching for your wifi access point under the "Other" option. Also, if you have lots of devices connected to your wifi, you may have reached your limit. (e.g. the airport express has a max of 10 while the basestation may have 50. Check your packiging on whatever router you have, may help.)

    Give each a different name. When each is connected set up your desired configuration for each one. iTunes will sync each according to the configuration you have made for each one.

  • I cannot connect to the internet. I think I have my settings all out of whack now and need to get them back to the way they were when it was working. (I know my wireless router is working because my Dell has no problem connecting to the internet.)

    I cannot connect to the internet on my iMac through my wireless router. I think I screwed up the settings and need to reset them. I know the router is working because I can access the internet on my Dell laptop which is located right next to my Mac.

    On your iMac try the following, in order, until (hopefully) resolved:
    1a. Delete Preferred Network(s)
    System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced > Wi-Fi tab
    Under "Preferred Networks," delete the network(s) you regularly use from the list.
    1b. Delete AirPort Keychain Entries
    Launch the "Keychain Access" application located in Applications/Utilties.
    In the windows on the left side: Select login for Keychains and "All Items" for Category.
    Click on the "Kind" filter at the top, and look for any "AirPort network password" entries...and delete them.
    1c. Add Preferred Network(s)
    System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced > Wi-Fi tab
    Add the preferred network(s) using the "+" button.
    Restart or log out then back in.
    2. Move System Configuration Files
    (Note: You will have to reestablish your network connections settings.)
    Go to /Library/Preferences
    Move the SystemConfiguration folder to the desktop.
    Restart your Mac. (Note: OS X will rebuild the files that are now sitting on your desktop. If this doesn't resolve the issue, you can move the folder back to it's original location.)

  • HT3500 I have a MacBook Pro and an HP ENVY 110 SERIES All-In-One .  I can't seem to get a network set up or either one to locate or connect to the other one.

    I've spent hours, actually probably days, trying to do this but it's not working. I've had the ENVY since Nov
    and have not been able to print - much less do anything else with it.
    My internet is CLEAR wireless. I use the little USB 4G Mobil Modem. This new HP ENVY is also wireless.
    I know I can't be online and print at the same time unless I get a router.
    I also know that I can go offline and change the network pref  to "airport" so I can print. Meaning I'll have to change
    back and forth but for my uses,  that's ok..at least for right now.
    What I can't seem to get set-up correctly is my own local network.
    I'm pretty sure it's suppose to be done using "Airport".
    Obviously, I'm doing something wrong in establishing my network.
    The printer is listed on my printer preferences and shown as  "offline"  "default". I assume that means the ENVY
    is my default printer.  Great! At least my Pro knows it's suppose to connect to the ENVY once everything's set-up correctly.
    Now, if someone could just tell me exactly, step-by-step what to do to get that done....
    I'd be soooo very happy!
    Thank you!
    Ricki

    Well... no help was found here.. so I abandoned the wireless- ness of my printer.  I bought a
    small 10 port hub because only 2 USB ports really isn't enough with wireless mouse, wireless internet
    and any kind of printer.   I also bought a long USB cable.  I now print--wired since this can be done
    as an alternative to wireless with this printer.   Because I don't want a cable "hanging around"
    when the printer is not in use, I simple disconnect it and reconnect when I want to print.
    It's a temporary solution others may find helpful as well. Apparently there's been a lot of
    confusion and problems getting this printer set up wirelessly with our MacBooks.
    Shame on HP for not helping us out!

  • We have two iPod touch 2nd generations, one had to be restored a few days ago and is now not able to have some of the apps back on it saying that they are incompatible with the iPod. Is there any way to "copy" the apps from 1 to the other??

    Is there any way to get an older version of the app that can be compatible or to "copy" the app from one iPod to the other?
    Or maybe to update the opperating system??

    you can by downloading iTunes to your computer/laptop but before plugging it in to the computer make sure all of your apps are on it then just sync the restored iPod to your computer and all of the apps on the computer will go to your iPod.. Good Luck

  • I have two iMac's on the same desk. Once iMac pairs with both keyboards and mice.  The other pairs with the mouse, but I cannot get the keyboard to connect.  How do I get a keyboard and mouse to connect to each iMac independently?

  • We have two IMac computers.  Do I need to purchase two upgrades to Lion or can I use one upgrade on bo†h on my computers?

    I have two IMac computers.  Both running the latest version on Snow Leopard.  To upgrade to Lion, do I need to purchase two upgrades or can I use one purchase for bo†h computers?
    Thanks,
    Alice

    As I understand the as yet unconfirmed rumor by me, is that once you pay for a single copy of Lion, every computer you have that's authorized under your Apple ID can download it, no limit on number.

  • I have 2? How do I sync selected photos from my IPad to my IMac w/o losing all photos on my IPad and getting the phoos o my IMac. ou see I have two IMacs with different sets of photos. Also want to convert all Apple works docs to pages docs on my IMac.

    I have 2? How do I sync selected photos from my IPad to my IMac w/o losing all photos on my IPad which will be replaced with the photos on my IMac.You see I have two IMacs with different sets of photos. Also want to convert all Apple works docs to pages docs on my IMac. Is there and app available to do the former. many thanks. b

    The iPad and related software is designed to sync with only one computer. I suggest transferring the photos from one of your iMacs to the other so that all photos are on one Mac. Same for all other files you want to sync over.
    To get those AppleWorks files to the iPad you'll have to determine if Pages will open them. If it will then use the file sharing feature of iTunes to copy them to Pages on your pad.
    If Pages will not open the AppleWorks files directly you'll have to save them in some format that Pages will read. These include but may not be limited to Pages and Word formats.

  • I have two iMac's one running 10.6.8 and the other 10.8.2  What Apeture program should I purchase?

    I have two iMac's one running 10.6.8 and the other 10.8.2  What Apeture program should I purchase?

    You can currently only buy the current version Aperture 3.4.3 at the AppStore, and that version requires MacOS X 10.7.5. at least, see the release notes: Aperture 3.4.3
    So you will not be able to install this version on your Snow leopard machine. Maybe you can buy a boxed retail version of an earlier release, compatible with Snow Leopard, but the newer version is faster and compatible with iCloud.
    Do your iMacs both have the same processors and memory? You will wan to use your fastest mac with the best graphics card and the most RAM to run Aperture, also a large screen would be desirable.

  • HT204053 can you have two separate iCloud accounts on one iMac device?

    can you have two separate iCloud accounts on one iMac device?

    You can have only one iCloud "user configuration" per local user on the Mac. Who the local user belongs to doesn't mind. Since it's a local user it's not related with who actually uses it. So let's say you want to set up Photo streaming using your iCloud user, just configure iCloud (under System Preferences) the same way you did on your phone and you're done.
    But, beware: if you're only interested in synching photos, uncheck everything else when configuring iCloud on the Mac, otherwise you will merge, for example, your husband contacts, calendar and mail with those on your phone.
    If you want to avoid any problems you can easily create another local user on the Mac with your name, under System Preferences, System, Users & Groups. After you create the user, logoff. The Mac will ask if you want to disable autologin (since there's more than one user that can log in now), answer yes and you will be presented with a logon screen. Click on your account name, insert the password and configure iCloud to sync with your phone.

    I have the exact same problem, Grace Period is ignored when setting it in Profile Manager for an iPhone.
    I'll try to verify that this is also a problem with iPad's.

  • I have two imacs in different rooms and Safari started crashing immediately after opening on both machines. latest version is installed.Any ideas?

    I have two iMacs in different rooms and Safari started crashing immediately after opening on both machines. latest version is installed.Any ideas?

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    For this step, the title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    In the top right corner of the Console window, there's a search box labeled Filter. Initially the words "String Matching" are shown in that box. Enter the name of the crashed application or process. For example, if Safari crashed, you would enter "Safari" (without the quotes.)
    Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    ☞ The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of which is irrelevant to solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    ☞ Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, select
              DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION ▹ User Diagnostic Reports
    (not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of crash reports. The name of each report starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report related to the process in question. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.
    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
    If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.
