Topics I've Started
03 December 2012 - 07:51 PMThis is doing my head in!
I have a Netgear 4 port wireless modem/router
Two Airport extremes (AE1 & AE2) in bridge mode
I have made a wireless network with AE1 and use AE2 to extend the network (I cannot extend the netgear wireless network).
AE1 is connected to the Netgear Modem Router (by ethernet)
AE2 is connected to AE1 (also by ethernet).( I have also tried connecting AE2 to the modem/router).
When I turn on AE1, I lose the internet completely , and I cannot log in to the Airport network ("timeout" error).
I can't seem to find any solutions on the internet.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated
05 July 2012 - 09:49 PMIt arrived today, my new MacBook Pro with retina. Looks great but..
I chose the option to migrate from an external hard disk, and 1.5 hours later, I was underway, for a moment. You see, things were not quite right. Some applications icons were there. But the application was not, suddenly the wifi stopped accessing the Internet, despite having a strong signal from the airport (other macs were working fine) then mail wouldn't connect, or quit happily, and the "app store" app wouldn't respond. Multiple restarts later, the finder was beech balling at the simplest of tasks. I thought, bugger this, I'm going to start again. So I rebooted to the partition (nice feature), ran disk utility, and erased the disk. Then I went back to partition and chose to reinstall, which means I have to download the entire OS. Not only will this take at least 6 hours,but will take a mammoth chunk of out of our monthly data plan.
So, having said that, does anyone know of a way to breeze through the initial set up and make a clean (ideally anonomous) admin account, before I import my user account from external disk again, or,
Is there a better way to set up a new Mac?
Any help appreciated.
