I’ve had trouble with WiFi dropouts for months, even though my MacBook Pro (with OS X 10.11.6) is no more than 10 feet from the WiFi router; my phone was able to see the network consistently. I tried every possible fix I could find on the Internet, with only temporary improvements. It was frequently unusable, but I found that I could unplug the monitor, take ...

An article posted on dslreports.com last December stated: In June of last year Comcast announced that the company was launching a new, Fon-like effort that involved new router firmware that turns your gateway into a publicly-accessible hotspot. More specifically, updated routers would now offer two signals: one being yours, and the other being a "xfinitywifi"...

Wireless networks are synced across iCloud, so if any other device such as an iPhone connects to these networks and is also signed in to the same iCloud account as your Mac, the networks will appear in this list.

The first thing you should do is make sure that your model iPad supports the cellular network you're trying to connect to. In America, we have two major cellular networks, GSM and CDMA. I suspect that this is the heart of your issue. Apple's support website has a webpage that helps identify your model so you can continue troubleshooting. If push comes to ...

It feels as if, when I open my MacBook, it just connects with the first one it finds and then tries to log me in. Turning off "Ask to join new networks" while turning on "Remember networks this computer has joined" should allow your computer to automatically join your home network and any other networks listed as "Preferred." When I go to the Advanced ...

There are several Protocols in a LAN Environment which a Mac can use (AFP, SMB etc.). You can connect to a PC's usually (or a PC Share) via SMB. In order to connect to that PC you have to provide credentials, a Username and a Password. If you have a local Account (ignoring complex Network-, Server- and Domain-Architecture for a moment) on that Computer you ...

Doing that has no effect. The order in which networks appear reshuffles every time I open the Mac. None of the networks in my street (except our own) appear in that list It feels as if, when I open my MacBook, it just connects with the first one it finds and then tries to log me in. Then it seems Virgin is slowest as it's always last on the list It's not ...

Short Version: I've used this method in El Capitan and it works. However, the connection is not very stable and takes long to activate. I would not recommend using this method if you have software that rely on using 127.0.0.1/localhost (ie:1Password). Long Version: I use this method when I'm performing Keynote presentations. I had my macbook air in ...

Have you tried System Prefs > Network > WiFi Switch off 'Ask to join new networks', then in the Advanced... section below, you can drag networks into your preferred order & delete ones you no longer wish the machine to remember [this will tie in with 'Ask to join...' & shouldn't bother you again].

The problem is that you are on two different subnets with two different gateways. What's happening is that you have an established connection with some endpoint going to a particular IP address. Your internal network firewalls switches and routers all have this state mapped. When you go from WiFi to your desktop USB connection, your Macbook wants to ...

How do Powerline Adapters Work? Powerline Adapters are, in effect, baluns1 that embed an RF frequency on electrical wire. What they are doing is taking the unbalanced CAT5 signal (which requires a ground connection) and converting it to a balanced RF modulated signal that is transmitted over the building's copper electrical wiring. At the other end, it ...

The answer to the question you posted: When a client connects, from which range does the server take the IP? Do clients get IPs from random ranges, or is there some priority? Excluding any existing leases that the client may re-request or any statically assigned addresses, your DHCP server will exhaust all 189 addresses in the first pool before it ...

You won't easily get hacked. Your router has a firewall which blocks all ports, unless you opened them and routing them to your internal IP address. You also have have to enable these features in your Sharing Preferences to work like File Sharing (port 21 for FTP), Remote Login (port 22 for SSH/SFTP) and a Web Server (port 80/443 for HTTP/HTTPS). These are ...

One more thing that you may try that works fairly consistently for me. Under Network Preferences, change Location to some other, if this is the first time you do this, do "Edit Locations" and press the "+" sign and add one using any name you like, copy any old settings that may apply. Apply them, and "Hey, presto!" you get the log-in screen of your internet ...

The temporary - easy for users - fix is to go to Network Preferences and create a new location and enable that. As if by magic the routing table gets honored.

I found an answer on the Ars Technica forum, which helped to get the issue resolved: http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?t=1225417 The file at /Library/Preferences/com.apple.security.plist contained the following text: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/...

Google Chrome uses its own DNS resolver, that's why it behaves differently. dig command also connects directly to DNS server.

The 12-inch MacBook doesn't have an Ethernet port. It is normal for it to not give you an option for something that it doesn't have. If you can't use WiFi, you will need a USB-C to Ethernet adaptor, as noted by Apple.

This sounds as a channel overlap problem to me. Apple Airport devices try to use distinct and far-apart channels but may make a wrong automatic choice when there is a lot of interference from other WiFi stations, sometimes depending on the order you turn them on. If you really need four access points (Extreme + 3 x Express) you either live in a really big ...

It is too easy. Firstly you just need to set the virtual machine to use bridged networking, so it will get an IP address on your network. This IP address will be accessible from your host machine. According to the Chapter 6 of VirtualBox's manual: With bridged networking, VirtualBox uses a device driver on your host system that filters data from your ...

I encountered this exact issue on my second try at upgrading to El Capitan. On booting up, I encountered the "network setup is trying to modify the system network configuration” dialogue that would not go away. For this second attempt, I had created and used a separate USB boot install drive rather than install directly from from the internet. (After my ...

A netsh counterpart for manipulating network settings would be the networksetup command, but to achieve what you want, the easiest would be to define two separate network locations in GUI, one with static IP, the other one with DHCP. Then execute: # scselect Defined sets include: (* == current set) 02080D27-B377-4942-BB3A-CF0C8F049F9E (static IP) * ...

The problem is caused by Apples home made implementation of the smb protocol. Using smb3 won't make a difference. Server-Side Fix If you have control of the smb server (Samba?) then you can fix this issue by enabling the vfs_fruit module. If you are not using Samba then you'll need to find another way to enable "Alternate Data Streams" (ADS) and ...

Shutdown cause numbers are different from Error Codes. For example, a shutdown cause of 0 means that your Mac lost power. An error code of 0 means that (the function) exited normally with no error. Using this case as an example, *Error code -128" means user canceled, while shutdown cause -128 is undefined. So, in the output you provided, you have 3 error ...

The combination of the model, video viewing(/discrete gpu usage) and the way it just respawned to the login screen makes me fairly certain it's a faulty GPU issue.
