Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


Does your Mac currently have a wireless card?

Please, tell me the full brand and model name of your wireless router.


Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Do not Know if computer has wireless card


I have a BT Home Hub Router

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.


Thank you for the update.

No extra charge:
May I please, start a remote screen sharing session with you so that I can better help you resolve this problem?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

How secure is this remote screen sharing session?

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.


Very secure.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

On that basis go ahead

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.


Thank you.

Please, click the following link and choose to run the remote application: http://198.0.229.45/?Session=66defa59-c2d7-4eb4-8113-ef3ac75359df

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No I wish to cancel the whole request as I am not happy with the security of the exercise.

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.


I have remoted into computers a few hundred thousand times with no problems.

If you wish, you can do this yourself.

Please, do the following:
- Click the Apple icon on the top left
- Click System Preferences
- Click the Network icon

Do you see a wireless item listed in the left panel?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No. Just Ethernet connected

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.


Thank you for the update.

In that case, you will first have to install a wireless adapter.

A device such as the one found here, will work: http://www.amazon.com/Bolse%C2%AE-300Mbps-Wireless-N-Micro-Adapter/dp/B00DTZYHX4/ref=sr_sp-btf_title_1_8?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1398951262&sr=1-8

Any store that sells computer items will sell usb/wireless adapters.

You can just plug that into the Mac and connect to the wireless signal.


I look forward to your next message or your rating below.
