In my case it turned out to be the router. It was an old 802.11g router that I replaced with a 5GHz 802.11n router. It works great now, no problems whatsoever.

I'm afraid you can't. Extending networks only works between Apple products and the Time Capsule does not have a "client mode", as the Airport Express. You could buy a router that can connect wirelessly to your ISP Modem - Router, and connect the TC by an ethernet cable to it, in order to keep using it as a Time Machine destination. You would have to put the ...

In the screen shot you are showing the Network usage numbers are excatly the same 27.3 MB. The individual network usage per application (coulomb) are current (active) numbers, which are much smaller and are not meant to be added manually to find out the total usage. OS X does that for you in the table at the bottom. The Table at the bottom is showing the ...

To your first question "is it permanent"-- No it is not, it will revert to the original when you restart. The reason is a MAC address is given to a network adapter (card) when it is manufactured. It is hardwired or hard-coded onto your computer's network interface card (NIC) and is unique to it, so when you restart system will get the hardwired MAC ...

bmike's earlier post about the duality of discoveryd led me to disable IPv6 on my wireless connection. Now the NETBios name issue for me is fixed. I change the name and it saves it successfully.

It is likely that you just need to delete one of the connections in Network Preferences. Go to System Preferences > Network You will likely have a list of connections on the left, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, etc. One of them is likely the connection above. Click on each of them, in turn till you find the one that corresponds to the connection in your question. Click ...

I found this but can not test since I do not have your set up. Stop the dhcp server either through Server Admin or from a command line command of sudo serveradmin stop dhcp. delete the file /var/db/dhcpd_leases. You will need root access. Terminal command of sudo rm -f /var/db/dhcpd_leases Restart dhcp via server admin or by terminal command of sudo ...

Let us check your Macbook WiFi settings and possible source of problems. We established that you have good WiFi signal and low Noise. If those remain constant (more or less) then the problem could be in: Open Network in your System preferences and Click on Advanced: First check if your WiFi (name) is at the top of the list of WiFi (names). Here I do not ...

1.) Go to SETTINGS next to your networks name there's a blue arrow click on that. 2.) Now turn ON auto-join 3.) Turn OFF auto-log in 4.) It Works!

Usually when the WiFi connection is still active but no data is flowing indicates Chanel crowding (to many devices/users on same channel). If the WiFi is disconnecting that could be number of other reasons. But since you are talking about the speed going down... When the MCS index is zero (0) then the channel crowding is a issue. The MCS needs to be at ...

Sharing wifi to your phone is a piece of cake. Your computer just can't bridge a network. Go to System Preferences -> Sharing and enable the network. Then connect to it from your iPhone. Traveling on an airplane would not affect the performance of your computer's wifi, and yes, at least in the U.S., you are allowed to do that above 10,000' feet (although ...

Just spit balling here but perhaps an ad hoc wireless network from your laptop and connect phone to it? http://www.maclife.com/article/columns/maclife_101_how_create_adhoc_network

In Virtual box try changing the connection mode to NAT instead of Bridge. If NAT works than there is some issue with DHCP Server or Router that assigns the IP address to your network.

There's a rather easy solution. Right click your clock, select "Open date & time preferences". Click "Time Zone" and select "Tokyo - Japan". Then either reboot or go to sleep mode. After you power up you should see all of the channels.

It's hard to comment on your question as you didn't give many details. You could connect a switch with monitor/mirror port functionality between your router and your DSL modem/network terminator (if that is two discrete devices for you). This way you could connect a computer to the switch's mirror port and "see" (snoop, trace) all traffic that goes out your ...

The question you are asking seems unclear, but I think you are asking if you can share internet connectivity from your computer to your iPhone (or other iOS devices) via Bluetooth. In this case the answer is no this is not possible, however you can share via Wi-Fi. You can share (tether) your iPhone, or Cellular iPad's data connections to your computer via ...

Indexing can be enabled or disabled only on the root of the drive, so, "/Volumes/volName". You can read more about the command by typing man mdutil into the terminal. An excerpt: -i on | off: Sets the indexing status for the provided volumes to on or off. Note that indexing may be delayed due to low disk space or other conditions. Also, indexing ...

OS X follows these steps when mounting a drive: It creates a raw device in /dev/ (for local disks only), it creates a folder in /Volumes/, then it mounts the drive to that folder it just created. That folder creation step is probably what you read. The shell script you linked is missing the following command: mkdir /Volumes/somenetworkdir Then the command ...

I have been trying the free account for NoIP (noip.com). My Airport Extreme has accepted it without complaint, but I found that my Foscam IPTV cameras have a built-in DDNS client so I don't know whether updates are happening from them or the Airport. I am running 7.7.3 firmware on the Airport.

There are a lot of situations in which your phone, while connected via WiFi, might need to make a cellular connection. This would include normal communication with a cell tower, incoming calls, Visual Voicemail, or depending on your WiFi signal and performance, additional data from apps. Once you have reset your cellular data usage statistics, re-run the ...

The firewall blocks traffic from unsigned binaries. Your File System, Inc. distributes an OpenAFS installer which is signed and includes signed binaries and a signed kernel extension. You can obtain it from https://www.your-file-system.com/openafs-client-installer/download

I had the same problem. In advanced preferences, I removed xfinity completely (twice). The problem persisted. My answer is conjecture, but this would seem to be a job for Apple tech. support...as they can show you how to install and use adware medic. I believe this is xfinity marketing in action.

So this is the story. After spending two days smashing my head against this problem, I was on the phone with my girlfriend and she says "come on, disable the firewall! That's what bugs us in the workplace when something doesn't work". Well, I did it. And it worked. System's firewall seems to block afsd. Disabling the firewall solved the issue. Oh by the ...

If you'd like to add wired network (Ethernet) ports to your MacBook Air you have the following options: A single or dual Thunderbolt network adapter. Apple makes one, the MD463ZM, but only with a single network port. There are third party adapters that provided more than one port - for example the Sonnet Twin 10G. There are also Thunderbolt docks that ...

I've been doing exactly what you describe for 8 years, it works just fine. I assume you set up Server with your internal IP address, and that it is a fixed IP on the local network? Server does NOT like having it's IP address changed. The external address can change 10 times a day. You say you already have a domain and a dynamic update service - I assume ...

Ok, so it seem like that by going into "Disk Utility" and doing the sequence "Verify Disk Permissions"->"Repair Disk Permission" did the trick.

You can set up an Airport Extreme with a guest network {Apple.com}. This is entirely separate from your in-home network even though it runs on the Airport. In this case it would be kind of like setting up a home network 'DMZ' that keeps some services away from the main network at-large.

I have the same problem with my MacBook Pro Retina 13" 2014 on Yosemite 10.10.3 and 10.10.4 with Apple AirPort. My problem is not depended on bluetooth state at all. Wife's MacBook Air have no problems at all, looks like it does not support 802.11ac at all - only 802.11n. So I think the problem is in 802.11ac. Just found how to fix it – this is not good ...

You should clear all the proxy settings unless you know you need to route some or all internet traffic through one single point of failure and slowdown.

(Cross-posting my Reddit answer here.) In my experience, it's more of an additional priority issue: IPv6. It hit me in Mavericks, but probably dates back to Lion. I develop on my local machine using /etc/hosts aliases to route requests through nginx, but on slow Wifi with slow DNS, it will often hit a 5-second timeout before bailing out on IPv6 and trying ...

Pick a random port from the outside world, forward UDP and TCP to port 548 of one device with an internal LAN IP. Pick another port for a second device, rinse and repeat. Forward 9898 to 548 of a Time Capsule, forward 9998 to 548 of a MacBook Pro, etc. For Charlies question, afp://my.no-ip.address:9898 will reach the TC, afp://my.no-ip.address:9998 will ...
