Since this is not comfortable enough, I'm not fully done yet. After another entire day of fumbling around in blogs, Apple sites and the machine itself, it seems to work. 1st of all, I have ...

You should be able to achieve this by making adjustments to your routing table. Have a look at the manual page for route on how to tell your Mac to send your default traffic over the PAN, and traffic for those other machines to your wifi interface.

This might be a case of defective trackpad. I had a very similar problem where the trackpad registered constant mouse click. You can quickly test that by connecting an external mouse, then go System Preferences > Accessibility > Mouse & Trackpad > Checkmark "Ignore built-in trackpad...". If the problem is with the built-in trackpad, the odd behaviour ...

It turns out that my problem was rare because the circumstances of it were rare too. I solved my problem successfully by upgrading from El Capitan Beta to the Stable release 10.11.4. I did this by downloading the installer from the App Store application (can be found in the Purchases tab), and running it on my PC. After selecting the drive on which the ...

I have similar problems with my Imac mid 2015 with El Capitan, connected to a Marshall Woburn. The strange thing is when the Mac is just showing the finder it works perfect. But as soon as I have Safari or Chrome open (doing nothing at all) it starts falling appart. I tried changing the bit rate as proposed, but even at 53 I see no difference. Do I need to ...

I managed to work it out: if you use BTT to map clicking the scroll wheel to the shortcut ⌘ + ctrl + D , it will show the dictionary lookup box for words, but also allows you to preview files in Finder (like pressing space) or Force Clicking a web link.

Unfortunately Bluetooth Multipoint only allows two devices to be connected at the same time. There are some business headsets that can connect to three devices at once, but they cheat - they use Bluetooth multipoint to the phone and ipad and use DECT to connect to a base station on your desk. The base station can connect to the macbook with a USB cable.
