Unfortunately there's no such feature in the current version of iOS (9.3), but there are some tricks you can still do now to achieve almost what you're asking for. On iOS 9 In this version of the Apple's OS you can keep open the settings app in the background, keeping it open in the Cellular Data section so you can easily open the app and turn Off or On ...

Get an app on the App Store which will tell you the MAC address of the AP you're connected to. There are many, and they are free. Then, enable the WiFi scanner in the AirPort Utility app: go to Settings > AirPort Utility to enable it. The scanner will tell you the MAC addresses of the detected APs and the frequencies used. Since APs use different MACs for ...

Seems to me the answer would be to turn on Do Not Disturb. This keeps internet on but prevents notifications from appearing while the screen is locked, but when you go to the lock screen they'll appear there, and you'll get notifications while using the phone. If you want to be able to get phone calls while in Do Not Disturb, this can be modified in ...

Yes, that is correct; it will change. Your MAC (Media Access Control) address is assigned to network interfaces, not to the computer. For example, on this WiFi adapter from a Macbook Pro, you can see the MAC address imprinted on the chip (circled in red) You can even lookup the manufacturer of the WiFi adapter by entering the first six characters into a ...

Your devices (iPad, iPod) are not disconnecting from the first AP and connecting to the extender AP because the signal is still too good for it to disconnect from. One of the best ways I have found to create a much more reliable wireless infrastructure is to turn down the transmission power of the WAP. In basic terms, this lowers the distance that a good ...

As others have said, not automatically on an un-jail broken iPhone. If you really want to turn off wifi and cell, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen and select airplane mode before locking. But turning off wifi and cell will also prevent incoming calls and messages! If it is just the notifications bothering you, go to Settings, Notifications ...

Yes. It's now quite easy to do so using Quicktime. Connect both phones to the computer using a USB -> Lightning cable. Open QuickTime Player. Choose File -> New Movie Recording twice. Choose a given phone to mirror for each of the windows. Move the windows around as you see fit!

The short answer is YES it is capable. I have a Macbook Pro 13" Retina Late 2013 model running El Capitan. I am running a Dual Band Router 2.4 and 5.0 by ASUS. The difference of my setup is that I gave the 2.4 and 5.0 different names so they appear separately in my wifi list. I have it set to access the 5.0 first and if for some reason it is not available ...

...reattaching the cables in the electronics of the computer. I am assuming by this statement, you have opened up your Macbook for whatever reason. Did you do any sort of service? Try reseating the Airport adapter - remove it completely and reinstall it. There are 4 cables that go to this adapter. Three are the antenna cables (J0, J1, and J2) and ...

I've just had the very same problem (OS X El Capitan) and refreshing the Finder didn't work out for me. Neither turning off and then back on the WiFi. What worked for me was restarting the router.

You're probably way over this, by now, but I just set up log capture from my 5th gen Airport Extreme to my Mac Mini (running Mavericks), so I'll chime in for posterity. Syslog Destination Address does expect an IP address. The computer at the end of that ip address has to be configured to be a log server (and OSX can be configured for this... see below). I'...
