I haven't touched any of the default settings on the Action Tec, it's still running WEP.I did verify that my firewall is turned off on the mac. Hi, I would first like to say I know nothing about computers, so sorry if I can't give a lot of info.
if the SSID have been changed (wifi network name) then the computer we'll keep looking for the old SSID and register the password so you'll have to forget and then reconnect to the network.
If it was a Windows I would give you a couple commands so that you can renew a DHCP address but sadly I don't know Macs cmdlets that well Thanks! I managed to talk to the internet guy and he said that he could see there was a problem but couldn't fix it remotely so he'll pass by tomorrow.
The Mac has a physical connection to the wireless router.
The "My Network" tab in the wireless router configuration screen shows it as connected, with an assigned IP address of 192.168.1.6.
Cause of the Problem: 1) System Update 2) Major Configuration changes made by users 3) System restore *4) Switched off System by holding power key When people perform major configuration changes to their systems, sometimes the settings may not migrate properly.
One that seems particularly vulnerable to odd problems is the system firewall.
the University network/servers will see which addresses are available..
and "loan" one of the available (currently unused) IP's out to your device for a limited amount of time (say:... or whatever the Network Administrator has set the DHCP-Lease timeout for). That IP Address is STILL RESERVED for the 4hours/8hours/whatever the DHCP-Lease is set to (even though the device is no longer using that IP)3.).. IP Address subnets only have 256-available addresses.
Don't worry about it so much just means you're having connectivity issues. Restart your Mac Book Also is this the only device in the house that is having trouble connecting to the network?
If it isn't then we know its the network and not just the Mac Book When the Mac Book has restarted and you see it trying to connect to the network make it forget the network and try to reconnect to the desired Network.
