iCloud not working using USB Dongle WiFi

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

 

Just updated to ML. Cannot sign in to iCloud. It says icloud cannot connect because of some problem with communication with icloud. I am using USB dongle for WiFi. AppStore is working fine, its just the iCloud and iMessages that are not working.

 

Suggestions??

How are you able to use AppStore? Your ethernet is working? Or do you use a wifi dongle because of non-compatible ethernet card?

 

(even if you are not using the ethernet port, I mean if you have a kext driver for your ethernet card, just that)...

 

Ethernet built-in flag on boot...plist?

Yes because of incompatible ethernet, i had to buy a WiFi USB dongle, that had proper kext for it in the CD that came with it. It worked fine with Snow Leopard, Lion and now with Mountain Lion.

 

Yes i do have Ethernet Built-in as Yes in plist file, but still cant access iMessages and iCloud

Check if your USB WIFI is en0 , it its en1 then that problem can happen.

Have you other (buildin LAN mainboard) enabled or only USB Wifi?

You can check en0/en1 in the systemprofiler network.

Also it can happens that , even you only have USB Wifi active an old entry of other LAN device (perhaps already disconected!) can avoid you get en0 for the USB Wifi.

In this case remove all Lan devices out of the system settings network and reboot and add again your USB Wifi - at the only one.

Thanks for the suggestions. Problem solved partially, iCloud is working now but iMessages is still not working.

Actually i have a builtin atheros ethernet, which i dont use, and use only USB WiFi. The kext for ethernet was not installed, so i installed it, rebooted. Automatically my USB WiFi turned to eth0 and ethernet turned to eth1.

 

iMessages is still not working though. Suggestions??

Hello

 

I am using a wifi usb dongle too, everything works, make sure to have kexts for your ethernet and wifi, add your ethernet first in System Pref / Network, generate a Mac serial number with Champlist, and it should work...

Problem solved by rebooting.

 

iMessages, iCloud, AppStore all working fine on USB WiFi.

 

Can you explain me with more detail how did you do it? I can't get it to work :(

  1. Are you guys on 'hackitosh's', if so I had the same problem going from Lion to MountainLion.
  2. I tried all the advise around, then some idiot suggested you'd need the latest chameleon bootloader (2.2+)
  3. OK I thought bootloader & networked no connection there. Anyway I was pretty much a zombie willing to
  4. try any silly thing going... Bang! first time appStore & iCloud sign in no problems.
  5. I forget who posted the advise, but if your reading this THANKS...

    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
    • Guy's if something happened, this is most likely Admins and Moderators are working there, yes we still need some things to be done, but if it's still not yet, it's because of time or something we don't know, we just have to be patient! Slow things is just because they are working in the same time, patience for that problem is good, and loading things, but apparently now is good, for me these things I've accounted them yesterday and this morning, but now they are gone. For the missing things like the Old insanelymac and theme, please we need them, and excuse my ignorance!
    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
