I have access to the internet, and the wifi is working for other items such as ipad. However the macpro will not connect to wifi. It had been working for a long time. I went on vacation for a week and used it while away and now it will not wk at home or office as it did before.

    Hi Gary, try this...

     

    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2712

     

    10.5.x/10.6.x/10.7.x instructions...

     

    System Preferences>Network, top of window>Locations>Edit Locations, little plus icon, give it a name.

     

    System Preferences>Network, click on the little gear at the bottom next to the + & - icons, (unlock lock first if locked), choose Set Service Order.

     

    The interface that connects to the Internet should be dragged to the top of the list.

     

    Instead of joining your Network from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed.

     

    For 10.5/10.6, System Preferences>Network, unlock the lock if need be, highlight the Interface you use to connect to Internet, click on the advanced button, click on the DNS tab, click on the little plus icon, then add these numbers...

     

    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

     

    Click OK.

     

    Also, turn off IPv6:

    System Preferences » Network » AirPort » TCP/IP tab » Configure IPv6

     

    Or whatever interface you connect with.

    Some Macs can't find wireless routers unless the router is temporarily set to broadcast its name.
