Macbook WIFI Connection Fail
Just got a new router/modem installed this morning, a Pace 5268AC. I got everything connected to it (streaming TV, 2 iPhones, ethernet iMac), but I'll be darned if I can connect my Macbook Pro to it.
I verified that WIFI on the Macbook is turned on, and I can select my new router/modem network from the list of available networks. It asks for a WPA2 password, which I've entered many, many times (the same one I used to connect all my other devices) in my failed attempts to connect. I've checked and rechecked the password, and I'm absolutely positive I'm entering it correctly. I've rebooted and reset the 5268AC several times, and I've rebooted the Macbook several times as well. No matter what, all connection attempts have failed. When I click the Join button, I get the "connecting..." message, followed eventually by a "connection timeout" error message. I've searched on the forum for the same or similar problem, but no solution.
Is there something I'm missing? The WIFI connection worked perfectly this morning with the previous router/modem (2WIRE 3801HGV) before the tech replaced it with the new Pace model. Is there a different setting, either on the Macbook or on the router/modem?
Thanks for any help I can get. I have very little hair left!! 😉
