Hello! I just have a question regarding MacBook Pro’s connectivity to wireless network. My sister’s boyfriend got himself a MacBook Pro for almost $4,000 and now he is having trouble connecting to his Time Capsule. It can connect to a network but when he tries the browser, the pages would not load. I am a Windows user but I’m using a Mac right now and mine was able to connect to the network and surf the Internet just fine. Can you tell me what could be possibly wrong with the other MacBook Pro? I would appreciate it a lot. Thank you.
MacBook failed to identify wireless network
If the wireless network really works fine then we have no problem on the network. To check if it is okay, try to connect on the wireless network using other MacBook just to prove that the problem is not on the network. If it is still not connecting, try to use a laptop running in Windows environment, then check if it has connection. Some wireless router do not support other channels, your MacBook might be using a channel this is not supported by your router. Check the router compatibility.
You may also try this: from your MacBook connection to the wireless network, disconnect it, then clear all connections and reconnect the wireless connection. If you really disconnected on the network before connecting again, the computer will ask you to enter the access key (if access key/security was set on the router). Supply the required field then proceed.
