OK Bill,
That narrows it down a bit. We now know:
 1. Your modem is connected to the NBN and its wireless network
 is
working OK - I presume some (if not all) of the devices you
mentioned as connected are connected by wifi (iPhones don't
 do
ethernet!)
 2. The physical wifi on your Mac mini works OK because you used
 it to
connect to your phone hotspot.
So the problem is just getting the Mac mini to connect to the
 modem
wifi network.
I presume that, as suggested, you have already tried just
 switching OFF
wifi on the Mac mini and then switching it ON again. I also
 presume the
Mac mini is in reasonable wifi proximity to the modem.
If this has not worked, it maybe that the wifi details have
 changed
since you last used the mac mini – so we need to check all this.
  * First off you need to make a note of the current wifi network
 name
– check this by going to your iMac or Macbook air and looking
 at
the network preference pane to see what the “Network Name” is
 and
make a note of it. Also make a note of your wifi password.
  * It is worth noting that many modern modems have two separate
 wifi
networks – one running at 5GHz and one running at 2.4GHz – if
 you
have not changed the default names they will be very similar
 but
slightly different – for example my names are:
 InternodeF7535B
and InternodeF7535B-5G – unless you have a definire need to
 use
different networks for certain devices, I would suggest it is
 best
to have all devices connected to the same network.
  * Now go to your Mac mini and open the network pane in system
preferences – is the network name showing the same name – if
 not,
open the drop down list to show other networks available and,
assuming your correct network is showing select this.
If this has solved it -great. If not, it maybe best to remove the
network from the computers “remembered networks”  In the network
preferences pane:
 1. Uncheck the “Automatically join this network” box
 2. Turn the wifi OFF
 3. Click the “Advanced” button and make sure the “Wifi” tab is
selected
 4. You will see a list of “Preferred Networks” – depending on
 how many
networks you have used in the past, there maybe a few names
 here.
Delete any older networks and delete the current network you
 are
having problems with.
 5. Click “OK”
 6. You are now back to the main network preferences pane. Turn
 wifi
back on.
 7. “Network Name” should now show “No network selected” – open
 the
drop down list and select your correct network. If/when
 prompted
enter your wifi password.
 8. If all is now working you can now check the “Automatically
 join
this network” box
If you are still having problems, report back with details of
 what went
wrong & when.

Re: [WAMUG] Mac mini

2022-12-06 Thread Juliet Kitson via WAMUG
   Thanks again when I first fired up just hit enter so no passé word so
   no problem but can’t change time and date as I can’t connect to
   internet even system settings indicate I am connected

   Hi Juliet - yes, if you go to the ABC iView site via your browser or
   app and try to Log In, you select the "With email" option. Once there,
   there is usually a "Forgot Password" button. If you select this, you
   will get a reset password link to your Inbox and you're on your way
   again.

   I use Passdiary as my holder of all passwords - very useful to minimise

   available too.
