Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11/b/g/n (WIFI) use almost the same frequency bands: Bluetooth: 2.402 - 2.480 GHz (79 channels) WIFI 2.4 GHz (IEEE 802.11/b/g/n): 2.4 – 2.4835 GHz (11, 13 or 14 channels depending on the country) Usually Bluetooth uses frequency hopping and changes the possible 79 x 1 MHz bands 1600 times a second to avoid disturbances while WIFI ...

I imagine this is the case: iPhone and iPad are using an integrated chipset (like this: http://www.broadcom.com/products/Wireless-LAN/802.11-Wireless-LAN-Solutions/BCM4334) supporting both Wifi and Bluetooth. And as both of them are on the same chip the manufacturer could be just incrementing the MACs. However the question is why you ask this - if you want ...

You could have a hardware problem with your network card. When there is no wifi hardware installen/found on the mac, I would go to an apple store or authorised service provider to have this problem fixed. When your mac is still in warrenty, it normally is free to repair. When it is out of warranty I would first call Apple care to see if they will repair as ...

It was probably there before Yosemite but you did not see it. Usually when your Internet service provider requires it it will be used. PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. PPPoE has become a favorite technology of broadband Internet service providers, who use it to save time and money. DSL and cable modem subscribers, on the ...

Generally speaking, only the router should need any PPPoE login credentials, and all the devices on the local network would get their connection through the router (in your case the AirPort base station), with the router giving them local network information via DHCP. If other devices on the local network are working properly with "standard" wireless and ...

WiFi signal strength only tells just that, the strength of the signal. It is a prerequisite to have a good connection. How ever that does not tell you about the Quality. If you have high interference (from devices or Neighboring networks) then your RSSI will be high. It should be <70 or better (the lower the better). Then there is the Transmit Rate ...

I have a similar set up (not same router). While using the same SSID, I noticed instability, probably due to randomness of who gets what. So now I have separate SSID for 2.4 and 5 GHz and I decide who connects to what.

Yes, they will download even in slow Wi-Fi connections. There is no option to choose an Wi-Fi connection to do the automatic downloads. You can only disable the downloads on Cellular Data on Settings / iTunes & App Store / Use Cellular Data.

Your iPhone has a lower-power Wifi adaptor with a smaller antenna than your laptop. The networks it sees are probably the only ones it can connect to.

You could write a launchd that monitors the file path of: /private/var/db/dhcpclient/leases/ If you looking for DHCP changes to an interface. That db holds all the different interfaces and dhcp changes on them. Something similar to monitoring that file with a launchd here.

From the WiFi menu bar icon, I usually choose 'Join Other Network', then click 'Show Networks'. I can toggle between the 'Show Networks' and 'Join Other' button to scan the available networks, and that's always worked for me.
