    Mac Mini internet connection problem?

    Just did a Lion OS update in my Mac Mini and right after that the internet connection stopped working and it won’t connect to the Wi-Fi automatically either. Why this is happening? Is there anyway I can overcome this issue? Is it a common bug with Lion update? Hope I will get the right information on this? Thanks.

    Dear Friend..

    This is the most common problem is all the OS whether it is Windows or Mac.
    Whenever we update the device OS to the latest version or some other, the OS settings get deleted or you can say automatically formatted from the OS drive and all the necessary settings also gets changed.
    But this is certainly not a big issue.

    The solution for this issue can be fixed through many way:-

    1. The very first step to connect all the wires and cables, modems with your MacBook.
    2. Then insert the driver CD in your MacBook disc drive.
    3. Now start install all its software and drivers which is required for connecting Wi-Fi network.
    4. When all the drivers has been successfully installed, then eject the device and now switch on the Wi-Fi of your MacBook safely.
    5. Its time to switch on your Wi-Fi modem after installation.
    6. Give command to MacBook to search the Wi-Fi connection or modem.
    7. Once it is found, connect both the device each other and create a paired connection with password.

    Once all this finish, then open your browser and start surf the Net on Wi-Fi network in your MacBook.
    For increasing the speed of your Net, you need to upgrade high speed internet connection also.

    Hope I hep you properly,
    Thank you..

    Hi,
    You can easily resolve the internet connection issues in your mac mini.
    Basically this internet problems raise because of
    Network failure or not internet signal,
    Due to internet package balance is over,
    Due to damage in internet connecting cable if you have broadband connection.

    So,if server down or network failure try the internet after some time or if internet balance over recharge it and then use or if you are using via wi-fi then check the wi-fi connection properly.

    this could be due to many reason
    firstly check all the cable wires of internet connection
    if found connected then contact your network administrator there might be server problem
    now check the settings of internet connection
    if using data card then check the period of usage if expired then recharge it
    if still found problem switch off then turn it on
    or call network administrator there might be technical issues

    hope it will be helpful

    click on the WIFI and click on Join Network .

    and you can also change it to default connection if needed .

    Thank you..
