  • Why can one mac access the internet and not the other?

    Hi I have just installed a 2nd generation Airport Express base station. I have setup a network and I can connect to it to access the web. Here's the rub, only my Macbook Pro can connect. My Macbook Air cannot connect? A weird error message says (translated from Swedish): Airport has the selfapplied/selfselected IP adress 169.254.67.130 and will not be able to connect to the internet.
    Why can one mac access the internet and not the other? Is there something simple that I can do to get more macs to be able to use my Airport Express to access the internet?
    Tech details:
    Airport Express 2nd generation (just purchased) model 1392
    Macbook Pro running 10.8.2
    MacBook Air running 10.6.8

    It seems the Airbook assigns a dummy IP address so somehow it doesn't reach and receive an IP from the Express. I deleted the previous Express setting restarted the Air connected again, restarted the modem, restarted the Express nothing....
    I spoke to the internet provider and the cable modem does not require any username or pw. from the modem to the cable it's one public ip, pure internet is flowing from the modem to the Express but the express doesn't seem to assign any IP address apart from the one assigned to the Macbook Pro.
    Do you need a screendump of the settings on the functioning Mac or the faulty one? What settings are you interested in i.e. which tab should it shot?

  • After upgrading to the latest version of firefox. I can no longer access the internet and all traces of Mozilla Firefox are gone from my computer. I have no access to the internet, my home page or my e mails. What can be done??

    I have been using firefox for years. I downloaded the latest version and at the conclusion of the down load I was refussed access to the internet. Something about Proxy???? I checked my firewalls and security and they said that mozilla was allowed but everytime I attempt to gain access I am refused. I cant access the internet and I cant download another program to access the internet. I uninstalled Firefox and attempted to reinstall but after uninstalling Firefox I have no means to reinstall because there are no traces of it on my computer and I no longer have access to the internet. What do I do? I cant access my e mails, stored messages, favorites etc etc.

    No. After I select "Choose" the dialog box expands to provide only three choices. This is a new bug. I have only seen it in the past week or so, but it is maddening. I have observed that, while the Mozilla Foundation focuses on trivialities like which search engine should be the default, the Firefox application becomes buggier and buggier. Most of my family has switched to Chrome, and I will be following shortly. Firefox used to be a great program. Not any more. Getting assistance with a problem has also become very difficult.

  • Why can't I access the internet and everyone in my house can?

    My laptop was getting signal since I moved into this house in the Summer. I went home to LA for a few days and when I came back one of my housemates got a new modem. Everyone else's laptop work(including 3 other mac book owners) fine but I cannot get access to the internet. What do I need to change or do? Im not so great with technology but I tried different options, she took off and on the password from the wireless internet and nothing. As well, I noticed 2 other icons at the top of my laptop next to the battery life icon..One looks rectangular and black..and the other one looks like this <.....>. Weeks have passed by and I'm just getting tired of having only access to the internet in school.
    Thanks! Hope someone can help me because I need it for school.

    Hello, thanks for the help but it did not work. I wonder what the problem is? =/
    What did not work?
    Did the airport router you are trying to connect to not show up under the airport symbol in the menubar?
    If it did show up, did it have any symbols by it like a padlock for instance?
    In other words, exactly what did you do and exactly what did you experience?
    If your Mac does not even list the router in the menubar under the icon/symbol (triangle with curved lines, supposed to appear to be radio waves radiating) then the router may have a setting set that does not allow it to be seen except to computers with MAC addresses that have been entered into it as allowable. If this is the case then your MAC address will have to be entered into the router's list. MAC stands for Media Access Control. "Mac" is the abbreviation for Macintosh.
    The fact that you mention you have two new symbols in your menu bar suggests that someone has been playing with the computer and making changes that you are unaware of. If this is the case then there are many possibilities for problems.
    The fact is, a Mac fresh out of the box will see any router within range and connect to it unless the router requires a password or the router has Access Control set such that it cannot be seen by a computer that does not exist in its 'OK' list. Since yours works at school, that rules out a hardware or problem or most software problems with your computer. But networking is complicated enough that you have to be quite specific when you try to tell others what you have tried and what results you got.

  • When I click on "To" the names and e mail address do not come up but I can forward

    I sign in..go to email....want to address who it is to go to, and when I click on the "to" the list of name and address do not come up and the little line that is in the address box disapears, and it seems like there is a "jump" on the e mail form...it seems to move up. I can open e mail to me, but can not address e mail out.

    Firefox doesn't do email, it's a web browser.
    If you are using Firefox to access your mail, you are using "web-mail". You need to seek support from your service provider or a forum for that service.
    If your problem is with Mozilla Thunderbird, see this forum for support.

  • I was using my wifi last night when I got an error message stating my ip address had been taken over.  Then safari stopped working and i can no longer access the internet. I looked at my ip address and it states 000.000.000....can someone please help?

    Sounds like a bogus pop up. In any case power down your Mac, your modem, your router. Then power back up in 1 minute sequence; modem, router, Mac.

  • Does anyone know how to use pages so you can export pdfs from the internet and automatically drag words from the document into the file name of the pdf (i.e., author, title of a scientific paper)

    Does anyone know how to use pages so you can export pdfs from the internet and automatically drag words from the document into the file name of the pdf (i.e., author, title of a scientific paper). For example, if I am downloading a paper by smith called "Surgery" that was published in 2002, it will automatically set the file name in the download to smith- surgery 2002. I have heard pages is smart enough to do this.
    thank you

    Pages can export only its own documents. They may be exported as PDF, MS Word, RTF or Text files.
    Pages can import (ie. Open a file as, or Insert a file into, a Pages document) documents in several formats, but won't rename the document as you describe. Documents that can be Opened (eg. Text, AppleWorks 6 WP, MS Word files) are converted to Pages documents, and retain their original names, with .pages replacing the original file extension. Files that can be Inserted (generally .jpg, .pdf and other image files) become part of the existing Pages file and lose their names.
    It may be possible, using AppleScript, to extract the text you want and to Save a Pages file using that text as the filename, but that would depend in part on being able to identify which text is wanted and which is not.
    How will the script determine where the author's name begins and where it ends?
    How will the script recognize the beginning and of the title, an decide how much of the title to use in the filename?
    How will the script recognize the year of publication?
    For papers published in a specific journal, with a strict format for placing each of these pieces on information, or containing the needed information as searchable meta data in the file, this might be possible. But it would require knowledge of the structure of these files, and would probably handle only papers published in a specific journal or set of journals.
    Outside my field of knowledge, but there are some talented scripters around here who might want to take a closer look.
    Best of luck.

    Barry

  • I installed 7.1.2 update for my iphone5 and I have problems.   I can no longer access the internet on my phone.  My wifi is fine, and I've noticed that there is no longer any indication of "LTE" on my phone.

    Against my better judgement, I installed update 7.1.2 on my iphone5, and can no longer access the intenet.  I've dis some searching for a solution, but nothing works.  What has this happened?  And how can I fix it?

    LTE indicates cellular. Tap Settings > Cellular then switch Cellular Data ON.
    If your Wi-Fi is working, then you should be able to access the internet.
    Reset the device:
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    If that doesn't help, tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings
    If that doesn't help, tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings
    You will have to re enter your Wi-Fi password.
    * No data is lost due to a reset

    Is your iPod configured to sync audiobooks?  To check, plug your iPod in and when it appears in iTunes locate it's audibooks tab and make sure it is set to them.

  • Why can't I access the Internet since Firefox updated?

    When I went to open Firefox on may laptop I got a box that said - Firefox will start in a minute after it finishes updating (not verbatim). After it opened I can't access the Internet through it or use any of my quick links. It just keeps refreshing to the Firefox homepage.

    Okay, lets start over. What is the system you are running?
    Win, Mac, Linux . . . . . . Version
    What Firefox?
    Are other programs accessing the web?
    Some problems occurs when your Internet security program was set
    to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your
    updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow
    Firefox to connect to the Internet again;
    * Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
    * Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see

  • How can my network access the Internet?

    Hi all,
    All in GNS3 lab scenario I created.
    Hope anybody can shed light on this matter.  I have for example a multi area OSPF domain.  Like all of my remote sites are in area x, y, and z and all connects to area 0, in the area 0 I have this ASBR 7200 that has an EBGP peer to R1 (ISP) that connects to R2 and R2 connects to R3, which in turn R3 connects back to my ASBR 7200.
    I would like to know how can I reach all of the BGP subnets being advertised by R1 (basically the internet) from my remote sites in area x, y and z?  As you can see in the topology I am using obviously RFC 1918 addresses on my network and I used all public IP addresses on the BGP routers.  I would like to know how I can reach all those for example all 500,000 routes in order for my remote sites to access the internet?  I can't redistribute BGP into my OSPF (since it will break).  I tried configuring the subnets on my remote sites on the ASBR 7200 using network command, and the BGP routers can see those subnets, but inside my network I cannot see the subnet that I have created in R3 (pretending it's an internet site).  What seems to be missing in my config in the ASBR?
    Please any inputs gladly appreciated.
    Please remove configuration in 3RD_PARTY-7200-ASBR router, I would like to know how can my local sites see loopback 99.99.99.0 in R3 without redistribution into OSPF...
     redistribute bgp 65535 subnets

    Yes you will need to NAT at some point to go from private to public address space. Here is a basic configuration if you are interested:
    interface F8
    ip nat inside
    interface G0
    ip nat outside
    ip access-list standard NAT
     permit 192.168.11.0 0.0.0.255
    ip nat inside source list NAT interface G0 overload

  • After iPhoto upgrade i can no longer access the photos stored on my external hard drive, after iPhoto upgrade i can no longer access the photos stored on my external hard drive

    I was just about to order a photo book, using photos stored on an external hard drive. I organised the book and pressed 'buy'. IPhotos instructed me that I needed to upgrade and so I went on the ASpp store, bought the upgrade and installed as directed. I then used the iPhoto Library upgrader as directed.
    After the iPhoto upgrade I can no longer access the photos stored on my external hard drive. I am able to access the photos stored on my internal hard drive - the remainder (including the photo album) seem to have vanished into thin air.
    Any suggestions please?

    What format is the external drive?
