Hold down the option key when you click on the WiFi menu. Then next to the currently active network there will be a "Disconnect from" option. I'm on Yosemite, and so I'm not sure whether this was present on earlier versions of OS X.

Apple released the 10.10.1 update today, which is supposed to fix many wifi issues.

Yes. From Apple's AirPort Time Capsule page: With AirPort Time Capsule, you get a super-fast Wi-Fi base station and an easy-to-use backup device all in one. And backing up your data couldn’t be simpler. Just set it up once and AirPort Time Capsule does the rest. It works with Time Machine in OS X to back up your Mac automatically and wirelessly, so you ...

Unfortunately I think only Apple can fix this, hopefully with an update to Yosemite (which is reportedly already being tested, but a release date is unknown). Until then, all I can offer is a workaround. Find Your WiFi "port" First you need to find your Wi-Fi port. On a MacBook Air this is probably en0. On a Mac with built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi, the ...

After research on Internet, the problem has always been. And the only one solution i've found is to change your Airport card to an European model. For this you can ask to an Apple Store, or if you find the European AirPort Card for your Macbook Pro model you can change it by yourself. You can find good guides for change the Aiport card on iFixit. ...

Unless your desktop is the central proxy server you will have to go through the router. Just because you can see other machines with arp doesn't mean you can do anything with them. Kicking them off the network via the router will usually be total - does the office staff depend on the network do do their jobs? A better way is running your own DNS server. ...

It sounds like the Time Capsule isn't functioning properly. It may be worth scheduling a free appt at the Apple Genius Bar. They can tell you if there is a recall or if by some chance the repair/replacement is covered under warranty. Perhaps it needs a firmware upgrade? You can check in the Airport Utility on a Mac or iOS device. More info here on Apple's ...

This isn't a solution, and it isn't a definitive answer, but WiFi/Bluetooth issues have been reported by many users (including yours truly) of OS X Yosemite. Apple is reportedly working on a fix, which may or may not help all of these users.

There's a company called SkyHook that sells a wifi-based geolocation product to many companies, but not sure if Apple is one of them. It was a couple of years ago though. You can ask them to update their database here: http://www.skyhookwireless.com/submit-access-point. If Apple is doing their own geolocation services now, you're likely out of luck. ETA: ...

You can surely do this but please not that doing so will void your Apple warranty with the Airport Extreme. What you need to do is: Pull the HDD out of the Time Capsule (take it apart) Install the HDD in an enclosure or caddy Connect the enclosure to your Mac Use Disk Utility to create a 100GB partition Reinstall the HDD in your Airport Extreme and you ...

Is your iPhone 4s running (at least) iOS 7.1? If so, then I believe this support page from Apple should do the trick: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/ts1559 If neither of Apple's instructions work, then one idea is to you back up your iPhone using iTunes and restore the device. I recommend making a clean restore. If the Wi-Fi works, then you can either ...

I know this is a month old, but check your ir remote. My Fios remote is programmed to control my Apple TV. If the Apple TV is on, the remote may be triggering the purchases when you use the up, down and menu keys on it. Since you are watching another show through a different input, you won't even notice it until you get the bill. Reprogram the universal ...

Your product is still under Apple warranty. Best course of action is to bring it to Apple Store for service. It sounds like hardware problem anyway. Meanwhile you could try some troubleshooting, like start in safe mode and see if it works. Next try logging in as another user to see if it is your user profile related. Also you could delete your airport ...
