By verifying the issue in the Guest user you have identified the issue resides in a system shared resource. Attempt to reproduce the issue in Safe Mode. If the issue is not reproducible, reboot normally and check if the issues persist. If it does I would encourage you to backup your system and navigate over to the local Library located at /Library. From here ...

From the graph displayed either your router or your MacBook (?) is having problems maintaining a connection. I assume this happens even when the computer is in the same room as the router? This is important as wifi signals are often attenuated by some kinds of building materials (wiring, metal studs, brick/stone walls, longer distances) so being near the ...

You can do it by connecting directly via Internet Explorer. You just have to tap in the url : ftp://ftp.yourwebsite.com / Then enter your password and that's it. But it can only be a temporary solution because I don't think it's really safe to do it that way ...

Phones are only blocked on this level for two causes that I'm aware of: The phone was stolen and the owner reported it stolen The phone was subsidized, and the owner stopped paying for it A stolen phone block will generally never be released, though it depends on the carrier. Some carriers may when presented with a police report or other similar ...

I do not know what the problem was. But I have solved my problem by pressing the reset button and it went to normal DHCP mode. It works fine from there. I just have to reconfigure some stuff back. Thanks everyone.

Does system preferences show a network connection? You'll be counting on it switching to crossover mode - it's possible the NAS is interfering with that. Are you defining a router IP within system preferences? Make your machine ip 192.168.0.100, router 192.168.0.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, then try a ping. If that doesn't work, post the output of this ...

Noodling around I found a thread on SuperUser that might be of assistance. http://superuser.com/questions/49891/how-can-i-stop-mac-os-x-overriding-my-hostname-when-i-receive-a-dhcp-request-on It's very strange that this happens when you are NOT connected to a network, I wish I had a better answer.

It's an issue of what device you'll be using, how many of them will be connected simultaneously, if you need to stream music, etc. But based on what you said, here are a few suggestions: In general, if you have a new Mac (mid-2013 or later, for most models), it probably takes advantage of 802.11ac, a spec which only the Extreme supports. However, if you ...

There is a major difference in using IIS Express and the 'regular' IIS. The latter as installed by default in Windows. In short, IIS Express runs sandboxed on its host environment. This means by default it cannot be accessed outside. Luckily, you're not the only one asking this as it has been adressed on StackOverflow several times. In my opinion, with this ...

It sounds like what you're trying to do is called Split Horizon DNS, and it can be quite tricky. That said, it sounds like you have quite a bit of it already set up but that the internal DNS is not authoritative for your domain. If you have not already done so, you need to modify your internal DNS to create a primary zone for example.com. Then, when you ...

192.168.1.15/24 is a so-called slash notation, which specifies both the IP address and the network mask at the same time. It's an alternative but shorter notation, which says: your Mac's IP address should be set to 192.168.1.15 and the network mask to 255.255.255.0. In addition to that, you will need to enable the tftp server on your Mac. To do that, look ...

As I found out, 192.168.1.15/24 is IP address written in CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) notation. For example: 192.168.100.0/24 represents the given IPv4 address and its associated routing prefix 192.168.100.0, or equivalently, its subnet mask 255.255.255.0 OS X doesn't understand it, so it should be manually converted to IPv4 address and ...

In order to do this you need your Mac to be connected, by an Ethernet cable, to the router. In the Network control panel of System Preferences, set the following parameters for your Ethernet connection: Configure Ipv4: Manually IP Address: 192.168.1.15 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Router: 192.168.1.1 Press the "Apply" button in the control panel.

Selfcontrol Selfcontrol is an app build for a different purpose, it disables your network connectivity for a certain amount of time to keep you from visiting social websites and keep you more productive.

Better than smb:// would be to NFS mount your shares over a private network interface running the virtio-net drivers. Once mounted, inside the host OS, you'd rsync in the data with: rsync /some/mount/point /home/myuser/ Or whatever you wanted. Someone already mentioned Vagrant and, on its own it won't speed up your VirtualBox setup, but it does make ...

You can extend a wireless network on an Airport Extreme, however it MAY require the old version of Airport Utility to accomplish these steps. What you would do is under "Airport", "Wireless" change "Wireless Mode" from "Create a Wireless Network" to "Extend a Wireless Network". Then under "Internet Connection" set "Connection Sharing" from "Distribute a ...

I have experienced similar issues and performed a couple of steps that seemed to help. Disable ipv6 in the routers. Of course, this assumes you are not using ipv6. I believe this step gave me the most improvement. Restrict your wifi to the minimum number of standards needed. For example, if all the devices are N-capable, limit your wifi network to that ...

The list is stored as an array in a dictionary named favoriteservers inside the ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist file. You should be able to modify the array with a plist editor, so that they display in your preferred order.

This worked for me: Open this file in XCode: ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist Look inside the favoriteservers container. Drag the servers into your desired order. Save the file. Log out. Log in. Done. Also! It sure looks like you have a separate value for Name and URL there! I haven't tried it but it certainly would be handy to ...

Apple moved to SMB2 in Mavericks. There have been many reported issues regarding Macs using SMB2 to access Windows shares. There's even a site dedicated to this specific set of issues!

To ping multiple hosts with the red/green feedback image you need to run multiple instances of the ping geeklet.

You can rewrite the script to ping multiple sites but you'll only get one ...

So... There was another thing causing my portal to not load (redirect ACL). The DNS was a red herring, and the only reason we saw AAAA and not A requests was because the machine had already cached the answer for the A record. Finding that out was humbling... what a silly mistake! Anyway, no issue with the Mac here, but if you see similar behaviour, flush ...

This is not a substantial answer, maybe treat it as complementary to the first answer.

Synology does have this walk-through for doing what you want to do. I will mention that (quite some time ago) I used a Synology NAS as a time-machine target disk, and I did get it to work, but found it to be highly error-prone. Not what you want in a backup. Also slow. I'm using a drive with a direct USB3 connection now and am much, much happier with that.

Client isolation. It is your enemy and your friend here. This makes it so not only can you not access your iPhone from your MacBook, but other devices on the network cannot access your MacBook or your iPhone either.

Use iperf to check the raw speed between your Pi and your Mac (if that's slow you have other problems).

Note: you should not base maximum speeds on what scp can do - encryption has an overhead so you are not only taxing your network card you are also ...
