My Mac os x

Your Mac does not provide WiFi it connects tot WiFi.

So I am assuming you are trying to retrieve your Home WiFi so you can connect your iPad to it? Is that correct?

I'm on my phone should I be on my desk top?

Well, it depends. Was I correct in your issue?

You need to find the password ***** your home WIFi to connect your iPad?

Ask Your Own Mac Question

OK, great.

There maybe could different ways to find that info. First can you tell me who is your Internet Service Provider?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Verizon

Normally Verizon provides you a modem/router box. On that box there is a sticker which provides the info you are looking for it.

It should say WiFi name and WiFi password. Can you locate the box and see if you can find that info? Please let me know.

Again. This has nothing to do with your iPad.

On your Mac click on the Apple icon top right.

Then click on System Preferences from the drop down. Look for Spotlight and click on it.

Oh wow your iMac is really outdated.

Ask Your Own Mac Question

Not sure if I will be able to remote into your Mac. Your OS is very old and will not support any of the current remote softwares.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Yaeh is so guess you can't help mybey I shouldn't have paid that last charge. If you could have them remove that I'll be happy to pay the $30 I guess I need a new computer thank you for your help

Sure, I will have the money paid for the remote session refunded no problem.

Unfortunately because of the old software my solution will not work. I would recommend a newer iMac at this point just because the software is outdated and the iMac you have will not be able to install Apple's latest software.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
