If you disable your LAN device, you won't be able to log on SSH again. If you need just to disable internet access for this machine, you could remove the default gateway with: sudo route delete default and add with sudo route add default GATEWAY_IP.

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. There are a number of ways to implement client isolation on an IEEE 802.3 network and even more ways on a IEEE 802.11 network, but they all ...

Use iperf to check the raw speed between your Pi and your Mac (if that's slow you have other problems). Further, check what speeds you get between your Linux laptop and your Mac to further help diagnose issues. 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 ...

You can use ControlPlane for this. It allows you to control your context, like home and other, and set actions for it: when 'enter' home context, enable file sharing, when 'leave' home context, disable file sharing.

Unfortunately you can't use your Macbook to extend your wireless network in this way. It seems to only be able to connect to an existing Wi-Fi network or create its own. It can't extend an existing Wi-Fi. Three options are: 1) Purchase a Thunderbird to Ethernet adapter so you can connect the Macbook to the network over ethernet and then share the ethernet ...

I have a Mac Book Pro with 10.6.8, fully functional until yesterday. I've upgraded to 10.9.4 and now the Wi-fi is dead, not even connects or show the avaiable nets. The icon says on tooltip there are no hardware installed. Please let me know if you got any success. I'll do the same.

The Cause I can reproduce this problem consistently on iOS 7.1.1. Just go into App Store and click the "update all" button in the updates tab. When you exit to your home screen, the activity indicator will spin in the status bar incessantly. Since the code has been wedged into the wrong state, the only way to get rid of the activity indicator is to power ...

Wel, guess I found it. I used a cross-cable (UTP), instead of a normal cable. Although it works fine, it seems the link negotiation takes a bit longer.

I would try to manually connect to network to see if that works. Here are the steps how to do that using Terminal by copy/paste following: Turn On networksetup -setairportpower en0 on Find /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/A/Resources/airport scan Connect networksetup -setairportnetwork en0 WIFI_SSID_I_WANT_TO_JOIN ...

Folks, be CAREFUL with domain level guest access. It opens your entire Windows network up to anyone who can access the network (Microsoft leaves this off for a reason). If you have to share the folder on your DC then your best bet is to make an account, (call it MacGuest or whatever you want). Assign it a password that doesn't expire and can't be changed ...

Yes, you can do what you are doing. You need to enable the local "Guest" account on the server that you are sharing from in order for guest authentication to work. I tried initially with sharing the folder with "Guest" and trying to access as a Guest from Mac OS X, but was met with the permissions issue that you describe. However, if you enable the Guest ...

[This is copied & slightly expanded from my answer on Superuser.] localhost is normally defined in the /etc/hosts file, not in DNS (although your DNS has an emergency backup entry for it). Here's the normal contents of /etc/hosts in OS X (as of Mavericks): ## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is ...

I don't think you can have it both ways. I can imagine a bit of a work around that involves the Mac knowing what network it is on, and then changing the defaults write command to match the network. Something like http://www.controlplaneapp.com/about/ would help you get that done. (not the simplest solution I'll admit)

ILIV, Yes, there is definitely some sort of problem with OS X in regards to DHCP and DNS. I thought it might have something to do with my having loaded Wireshark but I uninstalled wireshark and then reinstalled OS X and there was no change. DHCP simply does not work on my MacbookAir not my MacBook Pro. I have scoped the DHCP problem and see the same ...

I've fixed this problem awhile ago on a customer's machine, in that instance I believe it was an issue with the WebKit framework. I'm assuming you don't have access to an external bootable drive, (if you did, boot off it and test). Try booting to your Recovery HD and see if "Get Help Online" works. If it does we know the problem resides in your OS, I ...

For anyone getting into similar trouble : I went for ZFS and created a Software RAIDZ. I extended my Server to 5x2TB Data and 1x3TB Backup[1] + 3x2TB Backup[2] So I got a total of 8TB in a raid, 3TB as a Backup Drive and 3x2TB as Individual hard drives containing a Full Backup of a Section.
