I know this thread is old, but I'd like to leave here what solved the problem for me. You need to check if you have the same security in both access points. For example, I had one access point secured with WPA/WPA2 and another with WPA2 only. After changing both to the same, everything was fine. To check your access points' security, you can do this: ...

The scutil --dns command gives you all the network routing information you'll need to map hardware interface labels to network routes. A little awk and grep can pretty it up if you need to script the information or pare it down. Start with gripping for "if_index" if you're curious.

You can do this of course. Any wifi router that the two iPads both support should connect them. Just don't bother to connect to the Internet. I'm curious as to why you need this? Most iOS apps don't do peer to peer, though some obviously do. Bittorrent Sync for one would possibly be useful here.

On my MacBooks over Wifi, the HDD attached to the Airport does not mount in the same way as directly connected or even NAS drives. Rather than the drive, I get the Airport Extreme in the 'Shared' section of Finder. Selecting the Airport Extreme shows the drive as a folder, and opening that folder effectively 'mounts' it. Even then, the drive does not show as ...

If you'd like to add wired network (Ethernet) ports to your MacBook Air you have the following options: A single or dual Thunderbolt network adapter. Apple makes one, the MD463ZM, but only with a single network port. There are third party adapters that provided more than one port - for example the Sonnet Twin 10G. There are also Thunderbolt docks that ...

Open settings app and disable cellular data. You can set up a second passcode for cellular data restrictions. See this site or apple support or ask a new question if you need assistance with that optional step. I would use the moment to teach the kids about responsibility. Let me choose if they should know the passcode and be responsible for the costs.

Mover Put something — a contact, a photo, a video, a file — on the Mover table, connect two iOS or Mac OS X thingies to the same Wi-Fi network and slide away. It's that simple, really. (Yep, you can also use Bluetooth between iPhones, iPod touches and iPads, if you're on the go!) ∞labs, the developer of Mover, shut down a while ago and the app is no ...

I just discovered today that the original, 802.11g AirPort Express (Model "M9470LL/A" isn't supported by versions of AirPort Utility after 6.0 and that the last few versions of OS X aren't compatible with the older AirPort Utility (though I found this helpful workaround). I don't know if any other Apple routers have these issues — I have some other old ones ...
