WiFi WPA2 on PowerBook G4 - possible?

Hey PowerPeeps - updated my wifi router uses WPA2 Personal encryption by default (preferred); more old Powerbook G4 can deal w encryption WEP (& LEAP) only, then it rejects the attempts to connect to the wifi

Does anyone know if there is a device or application that can help this old faithful dog make the leap to this level of security?

I know I can go down the encryption on the router to WEP for the Powerbook (and everything else), but then security level is decreased for all my other newer devices (assuming they will work using WEP), would be so def prefer not to do

Any help, advice or recommendations appreciated - thx! Kyle

    I have 2 imacs and a laptop computer and you want to back up all three wireless via time capsule on my existing wifi network. If we can also use the time capsule as my wifi and replace my uverse wifi, that would be great. possible?

    If you want to make sure that you will be able to get the Apple support in case of problems or questions with your backups, you must use the wireless Time Capsule to back up your Mac.

    As long as the time Capsule provides a wireless signal, you can decide who to your 'main' network, then use it wireless Uverse for "guest", or children. If you do not need the Uverse router/modem wireless at all, it is possible to turn off wireless on the device and make it work only as a support modem/router...with Uverse wired.

    At this point, you can start thinking about how you want to configure things and get back in touch if you need some advice on how to do it.  We need to know what operating system that uses the Mac that you normally use to administer the time Capsule, provide good instructions, if you need it.

  • DeskJet 3520 wifi WPA2 compatibility


    I would like to know if the 3520 Deskjet is compatible with WPA2 wifi security.

    The data sheet does not include the compatibility of wifi (WPA, WPA2, WEP) security.

    Thank you very much.


    I understand the frustration, but I wanted to at least specify on the issue.  I have the 3510 e - all - in - one where I find myself and this model is currently connected to a WPA2 (AES) connection type.  The 3510 and 3520 have the same network with the same capabilities of networking card.

    Good luck


  • WiFi WPA2 Enterprise with RADIUS - connection problem


    I have here a new ISA 570w with the latest firmware (1.2.17).

    Anyway, I can't get wifi to work in mode WPA2 Enterprise with RADIUS authentication.

    Mode WPA2 PSK are not a problem.

    I have configured the BEAM properly and I can connect directly to him via NTRadPing without any problem. Also the test in the web interface works without any problem (see Figure 2, 3).

    The RADIUS server is a server Synology RADIUS on a Synology NAS, which is a FreeRADIUS server under the hood.

    In the settings of the ISA wireless, I put this RADIUS server for authentication (see screenshot 1, 4).

    However, I can not connect to connect to the network:

    On the iPhone (iOS 6.1.3) I get a prompt for a user name and password, but when I click on connect, it says 'connect to 'cisco3'... ". "and stays there.

    In ISA 570w newspaper, he said:



    MSG = add MAC station in the list of the ATU. VID = 5; MAC = 5 C: 59:48:02:78:3E;



    MSG = Wireless mode is a 802.11 mixed b_g_n

    When I cancel the connection attempt, he said:



    MSG = the Client has dissociated;

    On my Thinkpad with Windows 7 Professional I have everything configured as usual (see screenshots 5,6,7,8) but when I try to connect I do not get a command prompt where I wonder username and password, and finally the connection cannot be established (see Figure 9). Also tried with the same configuration on an another Windows 7 Pro installed costs for laptop with the same problem.

    I can't see any attempt of 570w ISA to authenticate anything in the logs of the RADIUS.

    Also the capture of network traffic on the LAN to the Synology NAS port does not show the RADIUS datagrams.

    I already disabled COP because I read that it can cause problems, but it did not help.

    Can you please suggest something else I can try?

    Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards


    I saw these screenshots, but that screen settings just select the button set up next to the authentication method in the section user authentication, under users.  In each of your screenshots, the RADIUS server identification number is 1, so I would also ensure that I configured the server ID RADIUS 1 that can be configured by going to users-> RADIUS servers.

    All that said, I have seen that your tests have passed and I also do not understand the point of having the RADIUS settings on other screens and then to have info ID RADIUS.  My thought is that you'd be able to pre-set RADIUS users of-> screen RADIUS servers and then select the RADIUS server ID in all other screens without having to enter the RADIUS news over and over again.  He also thinks that you could ignore the users-> screen RADIUS server and enter RADIUS information over and over again and it should work... as you set up initially.  However, based on the past experience of programming errors, I recommend configuring the ID from RADIUS server 1 under user-> RADIUS servers if you have not already... just in case where.

  • How to delete a profile type wifi WPA2-Enterprise when delete is not available.

    I have a WPA2-Enterprise wifi Windows 7 type profile that does not allow me to remove it. The delete icon is missing and it is listed in a section of managing networks wireless named "Networks you can see." The property screen reads, "these settings are managed by your system administrator." I am the administrator of the system.

    It is a profile of wifi which at one point was configured as a WPA2-Enterprise type test, but has been restored to a type of WPA2-PSK. Not the wifi profile is unusable because it says, "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network."

    How can I delete the wifi profile and start over?

    You could try the netsh wlan command delete profiles...

    Here's the syntax...

  • WiFi, WPA2 Personal, error

    My company wireless network uses WPA2 Personal encryption. "After entering the password on the pre, it displays a message' IP Configuration error '.

    Anyone encountered this?

    Your company allows you to use a static ip address requires? If so, you can always rely on the network that you have selected to configure the address (after that it says the ip configuration has failed).

    That said, I saw problems like that when you are too far from the access point. You can easily check putting themselves under the access point and try to connect (this isn't a solution, of course, but if the beach is indeed the question, you might want to check with HER and see if they can do something about the power of the signal or deployment). Mobile devices have smaller antennas compared to laptops...

  • Is it possible to use express Airport and Time Capsule both as two Wifi-repeaters at the same time?


    I have a time Capsule from the airport. I use it for my back ups and he repeats my wifi in the House (bottom).

    Now I need a Repeater wifi upstairs. I think to buy Airport Express. I will connect the Airport express with a Lan connection on the floor. And then I would also have wifi on the floor.

    But is it possible to use the time Capsule Airport express airport and at the same time: two repeaters-wifi?

    1. I have a Fritz! Box router / wifi (we called wifi Fritz! box)

    2. I have a time Capsule airport / wifi Repeater (we called the turtle wifi)

    3 and now I want Airport express on the floor for the wifi upstairs (another name for this wifi?)

    Is this possible?

    Before I had used TP-link (in socket), but it works for a few months.

    Thank you for your help and advice.

    2. I have a time Capsule airport / wifi Repeater (we called the turtle wifi)

    I think that your terminology wrong... the TC cannot work as a Repeater in the Frtiz.

    I think that you have done is connect via ethernet and run it as wireless... or WAP Access Point. It is perfectly great way to do it.

    3 and now I want Airport express on the floor for the wifi upstairs (another name for this wifi?)

    This is connected by ethernet, then it will work fine... you can call it Expresswifi

    You are certainly going to clutter the wireless channels, you could so be interesting rather than auto setting fastenings.

    2.4 ghz has been set to 1, TC 6 and 11 Express then Frtiz.

    5 GHz is less of a problem... auto should be fine, because the beach is mediocre.

  • WG102 fails with iPad / iPhone with iOS 6 and WPA2 / AES - urgent correction necessary!

    Hello *.
    After upgrading my iPad to iOS 3 6 he constantly fails to connect to WiFi with WPA2 and AES - hidden or broadcast SSID - at home and at work because the device does not accept the WPA2 password. This is also the case for my iPhone 4s, but the two appliances worked with WiFi (WPA2 / AES) perfectly with previously installed iOS 5.1.1.
    I tried to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 but it seems to be is no longer possible to downgrade the two iPad 3 and iPhone 4S as certification and maybe the viewport for iOS 5.1.1 was closed by Apple.

    Strange behaviour seems to address a problem of firmware of the installed Netgear WG 102 APs that all do not allow the connection of iOS 6 devices with WPA2 / AES enabled :-(

    Does anyone know about a possible solution to connect to WiFi with WPA2 and AES with 3 iPad / iPhone 4 and iOS 6 update for Netgear WG 102 APs?
    Thanks a lot for any help and advice.
    Best regards from the Germany

    The downgrade to 5.0.1 works. He fixed a connectivity with my two devices IOS 6, my wife 5 iPhone and my new retinal screen of the iPad. It does not appear to have caused problems of connectivity with other devices down to 5.0.1

  • Can I connect my old iMac (with no wifi capabilities) to the internet using the cable to my MacBook?

    I have an older iMac (PowerMac 6 bought in 2003) that only connects to the internet via a cable directly to the router. I moved this computer out of the range of the router and you want to connect to the internet again. I also have a MacBook (late 2009), which has Wifi capabilities. Is it possible to connect the old iMac to the internet via the MacBook?

    Yes, this should be doable. On the MacBook, go to the system Pref > sharing > turn on internet sharing via the Ethernet port.

  • Somes devices cannot connect to WiFi TimeCapsule more

    Hi everyone, I am facing a weird situation.

    Current configuration: the home Wifi is provided by a TimeCapsule, which has its firmware updated. A couple of device (10) are regularly connected (printers, iMac, MacBook Air, iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc.). Nothing very complicated.

    The situation:

    This morning, I had 2 friends at home with their personal devices (one tablet of Nexus and an iPad 1st generation). I tried to connect to my Wifi and it never worked. On the iPad, the wheel turned in the parameter space WiFi and no internet connection was possible. No Wifi setting has been provided by the TimeCapsule (no IP, etc.). On the tablet of the Nexus, I got more details: he was blocked at the stage of IP address get.

    Obviously, my first thought was to restart my TimeCapsule. Unfortunately, nothing has changed: these new devices have been blocked at the same stage and... my daughter iPod also got stuck. Exactly like the iPod from my friend. But has been connecting iPod to my daughter to my wife for the last 3 years!

    My friends finally left, so the problem is "over", with the exception of the iPod of my daughter. Until this morning, he was perfectly able to connect as usual, but now no.: the wheel keeps turing in the Wifi configuration. I have obviously reset network settings: nothing has changed.

    On the TimeCapsule, I see that the iPod gets an IP address. Also, when I change the name of the iPod in the control area, I can launch a sync to iTunes on the iMac and the iPod name is updated! So, this means that the iPod IS connected via Wifi, but it is not possible to browse the Internet or connect to what. The WiFi icon does not even appear in the top bar.

    All other devices (iPad, iMac, etc) works perfectly.

    Any ideas?


    ... except for the iPod from my daughter. Until this morning, he was perfectly able to connect as usual, but now no.: the wheel keeps turing in the Wifi configuration. I have obviously reset network settings: nothing has changed.

    As you probably already know, reset the network settings deletes saved passwords and network configuration details. It also exports the residual caches and preferences. Most of the time, it should be fixed.

    As it didn't, the only other suggestions I could give are:

    • Go to the option "forget network Wi - Fi" in iOS settings and then manually try to join the wireless network yet.
    • If this does not resolve the problem, then possibly one or more of your Wi - Fi connection settings for your wireless network may have to be changed:
      • Make sure that the network name does not include spaces or special characters.
      • Don't 'hide' your Wi - Fi network.
      • Try temporarily disabling Wi - Fi security to see if the iPad will connect now.
  • How to detect / clean a possible Botnet?

    Hello, I just got a message from Time Warner Cable today telling me that they "detected signs of the botnet traffic being transmitted from a device connected to the modem cable to your connection Internet of Time Warner Cable."  I really hope they are wrong.

    I have 3 macs here on El Capitan, a Time Capsule and an airport express and a couple of Apple TVs/ipads/iphones and an Epson printer. I concentrate on macs... and I was wondering what is the best way to go about detecting and deleting everything that belongs to this botnet? It is my understanding that the bots are not viruses... or a simple anti-virus program work?  I never trust one of these programs and has always considered to be incomplete or part of an alarmist tactical cash grab. Also, I didn't have a program hogging resources analysis of the computer all day all the time like I used to have, on a machine windows, some time ago. But if I really have to in this case, I want to know what the Mac Pros use when there is a problem of any kind like that.

    I mainly use a machine and it was at one point yesterday with a more than the usual CPU. Incidentally I'm briefly to the preferences window security and privay on the mac about 30 minutes ago and initially it would not open. I got an error message saying something like "it wasn't available" or something to that effect. I had to run several times before it would open successfully.

    Until someone asks:

    1. Yes, I have a password long enough complicated WiFi (WPA2 I think)

    2. I don't see anything else on the network, except the devices here

    3. all devices are updated to the latest OS

    4. none have any sort of anti-virus installed

    Are you sure that the e-mail claiming to come from TWC is authentic and not a phishing attempt? Are Web sites, you should really visit sites of Time Warner, for example if so...

    I agree with your attitude to antivirus programs, steer well clear of them. Installation AV does not solve a problem on a Mac, it gives you another problem.

    Are you running torrents?

    Activity Monitor allows you to check the amount of network traffic and try to identify the responsible process by looking at the bytes sent/received columns.


  • HP EliteBook 8560p: can not turn on WiFi: the button is orange, and nothing happens when you press


    I have a problem with my wifi. The button always orange and nothing happens when I press on it: no errors, no message, no reaction at all. This is why I can't use WiFi.

    The laptop is a little new: I use only 2 months.

    1. number and product name

    HP EliteBook 8560p
    НР LQ589AW

    2 operating system installed (if applicable)

    Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

    3. error message (if any)

    No error message

    4. all changes made to your system until the problem occurred

    My windows crashed and I got it from archive created a few days ago. Archive includes all data from hard drives, the system has been restored exactly as it was before the accident. I still don't know if this caused the problem (or if the problem occurred after that): it happened a month ago, and I had no WiFi available at the time and only tried to turn it on a few days ago.

    Additional details:

    In device manager wireless card is appearing as functioning normally. In the management of the adapter Wi - Fi is on but says "no connection available. If I run diagnostic tests, he asks me to activate WIFI with a button on my laptop, which I can't do. In Mobility Center, it says "connection Wi - Fi is turned off". Activate the button is gray and impossible to click on.

    I already tried things:

    1. Reinstalled all the HP drivers from original CD.
    2. Card WiFi removed in the windows Device Manager (remove device), restarted windows, installed new drivers for it, rebooted again;
    3. Checked the mobility Center as suggested in one of the threads available on this forum;
    4. Do a hard reset for HP laptop (battery removed, push the button and hold for a minute).

    Thanks for any help!


    I managed to solve the problem...

    Turns out that the problem was (apparently) caused by HP Power Assistant tool shipped with my laptop. Default profile has been showing the gray bluetooth and WiFi, and it was not possible to turn them on. I created a new profile, and even if all the parameters are identical to the default profile, it allows me to turn the BT and WiFi and turn off without any problems. Button is working fine now as well and goes from blue to orange when I press it. Active WiFi and it works.

    I hope this helps.
