I have recently run into a similar situation as yours. Both of the proposed solutions below do not use expensive gear like thunderbolt docks or monitors, and can achieve the same (or similar) desired end result. This Thunderbolt-to-Dual-HDMI adapter allows your to connect two 1080p monitors to a single Thunderbolt port, and have both those monitors act ...

BetterSnapTool also has this feature (as a shortcut). I think it was a free app, and its been a great one. There is a shortcut where you can maximize the window in the next screen (among other shortcuts or ways of doing this). See the screenshot of the related shortcuts.

The problem is Mac OS X. It is limited (in software, in the drivers) to a certain pixel colour clock rate for the HDMI port. The hardware in the Mac is more than capable of driving your WQHD monitor at 2560 x 1440 etc., but you can't do it via HDMI as the operating system's interface to it is essentially crippled in software. It'll work via the ...

I had exactly the same issue with MBP Retina 13 and Dell 2408 DVI2mini-display and what helped here was to pull out the dvi-cable completely (as i tried to move away as far as possible from the monitor and then moved closer.) At the end I was 30-40cm away but with straight cable and now WiFi still works.

Max supposed supported resolution on that card for an external monitor is 2560x1600, I'm afraid. The 2013 can do 4k, but not the 2012.

Only 2013 Macs (and upwards) are compatible with 4K. Current retina MacBook Pro (13" and 15") are compatible with 4K but only at 24Hz

The external display is not set as a mirror of the main display but rather as an extension of it. So you can drag the external drive icon (or any file/folder/window) from one display onto the other. However, this will not 'stick' as when you disconnect the drive and reconnect it, the system will mount the drive icon back onto the primary display (the one ...

I use one of these: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BUC3M2K/ref=pe_385040_121528360_TE_dp_1 It's not perfect, but it works good enough for me. There is some screen lag, mouse lag, and minor flickering on the display that you connect via USB.

As far as I'm aware, you can't run Target Display Mode from Mini DisplayPort to Thunderbolt; only like to like or Thunderbolt to Mini-DP. See http://support.apple.com/kb/PH14264

I do not know what is it that you trying to do. The HDMI cabled external monitor has nothing to do with the Network (Internet). Also the "My Trace route" applications is bit out of date. I would suggest to use the build in app called Network Utility to check the internet connection parameters including the trace route. The Network Utility app is located ...
