If you are able to use Skype and uTorrent, but not able to use Safari or Chrome, I would recommend that you try resetting the SMC. In my comment above, I recommended trying to ping external addresses which would determine the status of your network connectivity.

Just had this problem myself. My setup is a media server on one bridged router with ip-192.168.1.2 bridged to another router with internet =ip-192.168.1.1. My media server is 192.168.1.222, I simply put this ip on the DMZ for router 192.168.1.2 As internet traffic still has to pass through 192.xxxx.1 I think its perfectly safe! Not sure what advanced ...

Free method that works, with a jailbroken iPhone at least: 1) Install openSSH on your iPhone from cydia, or apt-get, if you prefer the terminal. 2) Install python 2.7.x.      As of this writing the latest version is 2.7.6. 3) download libusbmuxd.      https://github.com/libimobiledevice/libusbmuxd ...

I might be wrong, but it could be possible to use something like Transmits "Kernel Extension / Network-Drive Mounting System". Fork Lift has this feature too. and it shows up as a "Generic File System (OSXFUSE)" on my MacBook Air. If you really want it, it's worth a try because both have a demo version.

Is this what you're looking for? WiFi Sharing If so, you can create a network with the same SSID and password as your existing network

What you are trying to do is indeed possible, but it requieres a lot of work to get it working. I thought about that for a while and it is a great Idea to use a mac as Wifi-Router, especially in Virtual-Test-Environments. But Mac OS X does not work like that. The reason for that is, that Mac OS X only starts the service, if you really have Internet ...

To get the drive mounted at login, drag the mounted volume to the Login Items in System Preferences → Users & Groups for the user that you want the volume auto mounting. To set the permissions, Get Info (⌘I) on the drive and set the permissions in the Sharing & Permissions section.

Type in Terminal: scutil --get HostName If there's no HostName available, what you see is probably coming from the DNS or DHCP server. Set your HostName with: sudo scutil --set HostName 'yourHostName' That should do it.

I get the same results. Only 4 clients receive an IP from the the main AP. Seems to be an undocumented hard limit on the Express when in client / proxysta mode

I had the same problem: Network Activity icon constantly spinning on home screen, even with all apps closed. I turned off my iPhone and then turned it back on. Problem solved.

Yes this is possible. When prompted for the location of the home folder for the user you can choose any shared folder that you have configured to be used as storage for home folders in the File Sharing service. This folder can be anywhere on the machine or anywhere on the network.

Airport Utility is only for Apple's line of Airport wireless routers. This includes Airport Express, Airport Extreme, and Time Capsule. It does not support other routers.

Interestingly it does show Connected but the WiFi settings are wrong and the Network settings are wrong? Anyway, lets bypass the GUI and use Terminal for some direct commands.

Just to set the terminology straight. Apple does not Monitor anything on your computer. It only does if you asked for it and gave it a permission. So you are still 100% in control and no one from Apple is spying on you. Each Apple application on your computer would allow you to set it up to use Apple service on line. A simple thing like the Clock, if it ...

You'll have to manually edit VMware's network preferences and add static hosts to get this working. The file necessary can be found at /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/vmnet8/dhcpd.conf. The file is read-only so chmod it writeable first. For each static host you'll have to add the following and change the hostname, MAC address and IP to your VMs: ...

Try forcing OS X to connect to your network share using SMB1 instead of SMB2. To do so: Open the Finder. Select Go -> Network. In the "Server Address" field, enter "cifs://yourservername" instead of "smb://yourservername".

I would set up a user to automatically log in and lock the screen immediately with a password (or as close to immediately as you care.) That will mount the external drive and start up sharin for all users. Alternatively, you could drop the $20 on OS X server and have it mount shares at boot like you rightly expect a server to behave.

You can do this with Activity Monitor. You can run this in the background with the window closed and it will track the data usage for the apps and services. In Mavericks, this is a separate Network tab, but you can add the Sent/Received columns to the view in Mountain Lion too.

It turns out that this issue was cased by a network problem. The two computers couldn't reach eachother. So there was no problem with the firewalls or so.

Yes. Off-line dictation is possible since OS X 10.9, Mavericks. Starting with OS X 10.9, you can now use dictation offline, by checking the "Enhanced Dictation" box in the Dictation system preferences.

If the file /etc/ipfilter/ipfw.conf exists, then you need to either remove it or edit it so that ipfw does not block the traffic. Since ipfw is deprecated, probably just delete the file and reboot.

This is not a network setting, there are still likely components left behind. Probably the best place to ask this question would be landesk.com. For example http://community.landesk.com/support/thread/16347

You want to make sure that your Mac's ethernet device is before the wifi device in the system's network service order. In System Preferences, Go to Network; under the device listing, click the 'gear' icon and select 'Set Service Order.' Drag 'Ethernet' to the top. Per my understanding, all traffic will attempt to be routed through the top-most device, and ...

There's an app called Control Plane that allows you to setup rules for various preferences based on criteria such as what network you just joined, your location, time of day, etc. You could try creating a rule with it that cuts down the network activity on your mac after so many minutes of connecting to the Mifi. http://www.controlplaneapp.com

It is not a problem and it does not search for network unless you prompt it to. Only if you click the AirPort menu bar item to look at the list of networks will it start searching to show you what is out there, since it rightly so assumes you wanted to search for networks.

I solved the issue. Soln: Open System Preferences, select "Network". Click "Assist Me". In drop down menu, select "Diagnostics". Chose preferred network port configuration. Click "Continue" to finish.

The problem seems to be in the place you've narrowed your search; although it's not a case of the clients getting handed the wrong DNS Server address, but more related to the clients not being able to use 192.168.2.1 as their DNS Server. It's unclear how you've got the DNS Servers setup on the system doing Internet Sharing, but the issue is likely within ...

The article you reference was indeed correct for when it was published and that's how it works prior to Mavericks. Under Mountain Lion 'named' get's launched when Internet Sharing is active with /etc/com.apple.named.proxy.conf as the config file. This is all observable under Mountain Lion - I verified it. However, domain name resolution isn't just based ...

Usually that means that your phone is doing a heavy-weight network activity, which can mean any of the following (not exhaustive list, only most common, and, coincidentally, easiest to fix): The network you've connected to needs some more configuration, and it's taking some time to get the configuration information set properly from the router (or, more ...

If you open the dropdown, you can choose edit, there you can create a new location. In the new location, all settings should be on default, so your 802.1X setting shouldn't be there anymore.

How about switching off your modem? I think I experienced the same thing - my iPhone and my Mac both began reporting failure on attempting to connect to my WiFi router (Airport Extreme, 2 or 3 years old). Lucky for me I have two Airport Expresses to extend my network, so I still had WiFi. Oddly, I found that one of them, which connects to my router only ...

Can you see it if you boot from the recovery partition? Try booting while holding down Command-R. Once booted, try to connect to the Wifi. If you can see it in Recovery mode, then it's probably a corrupt system file or cache. If you still can't see it in Recovery mode, I have no idea what the problem is.

Are you using two network devices that are on the same LAN? For example, wifi and wired ethernet? Try disabling one of them. I used to have that problem and fixed it this way.
