Airport Extreme Wont Let 2 Connections

3 posts in this topic

Good Morning Everyone

 

This problem has stumped me. I had a system that was working fine for about 6 months. We have the latest 27" iMac at home running on the home WiFi system that is using a Airport Extreme to connect to the internet, and I have a MacBook that I use around the house. These two, plus the iPod Touch that we also have would connect and run fine over the system together, untill last night.

 

My wife was using the iMac watching a movie from Netflix, when I got home, and I went to open up my MacBook as normal, and as soon as I opened the MacBook, her connection on the iMac stopped and I have not been able to get it back online since. This is just strange, I can use the internet fine with the iMac, but the MacBook is not having any of it.

 

I can open up Airport Utilities in the iMac, and it see's the Airport Express, and the green light is on, but the link to the internet is yellow, so I think that is the problem, but why can the MacBook connect via the same Airport Extreme and not the iMac?

 

Any idea's guy's? I am not that techie, so basic very basic please.

 

Thanks

 

Pete

Thanks for the tip, I did the turn off and restart, but I am still only able to connect to the internet via the MacBook, and not the iMac. The iMac is connected to the Airport Extreme fine, like the MacBook is, but only the MacBook is able to connect to the internet..
