Open Keychain Access from /Applications/Utilities and search for AirPort. All the network passwords are listed as 'AirPort network password' entries. Double-click an entry, then select Show Password and enter your login password to view it.

Wi-Fi passwords are synchronized via iCloud keychain. That's why your iPhone also knows the password. Try deleting this network from Preferred Networks. Also delete item from your keychain. In Keychain Access.app select iCloud keychain, find the item with the SSID (network name) of your neighbor's network and remove it (Right click -> Remove).

This can happen when (for example) a MacBook computer was used to create it's own Wi-Fi network. The pop-up you see indicates that after you connect to this SSID you won't have internet access. Such networks are called Ad-Hoc networks (more info: Wiki) .

The correct form to add a net route is route add -net 10 $GW Obviously you have to replace $GW with the ip address of your gateway.

Obviously you joined neighbors network once upon a time. Since you have the "Remember networks this computer has joined" Enabled, it will remember it. Find it and delete it in networks - advanced, or just delete both and next time reconnect in the coffee shop, but do not connect to Free WiFi if showing up when at home. The fact that they have the same ...

I've seen different features when someone is using the airprint driver (which automatically gets assigned to the printer when WiFied) compared to the 'normal' driver via USB. It says if it's airplay or not in system prefs>print&scan "Kind" You can choose what driver you want when you add the printer in the "use:" drop down. Try a couple. If as you say, ...

Try Unlocator. It is a service to make it look like you are somewhere other than where you are. They have a seven-day trial so you can see if it does what you need. I'm not affiliated with the company, just a satisfied customer.

Here are few steps to try- A- To check your functionality run the airport -s in Terminal. That should show you the scan results.

When the phone is asleep (also known as hibernation mode), the WiFi radio is shut off after a time to conserve battery power. Anything that occurs on the phone, such as receiving notifications, background app updates, et cetera, uses the cellular network instead of WiFi. The one notable exception would be iCloud backup, for which the phone wakes the WiFi ...

It means that the Find My iPhone service cannot contact the iPod. This could be because it's turned off, or because it's out of range of a known Wi-Fi router. If it's asleep, it will still register on Find My iPhone, so it's either run out of battery or not able to get onto Wi-Fi.

Turned off "Automatic proxy discovery" on home network with double firewalls and no proxy. Now the internet is back.

No. If the WiFi signal itself is still 'live' the iPhone doesn't check to see if it's actually connected to the outside world, unfortunately. You need to switch it over manually.

I've ran into this issue recently and solved it by unchecking: System Preferences > Energy Saver > Wake for network access See this thread on Apple forums - Wifi disconnects after sleep and takes long time to reconnect with Mavericks

AirDrop uses Bluetooth to create a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network between the devices. Each device creates a firewall around the connection and files are sent encrypted, which actually makes it safer than transferring via email. AirDrop will automatically detect nearby supported devices, and the devices only need to be close enough to establish a good Wi-Fi ...

Yes this works Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services (all the way at the bottom) and toggling wifi networking.

If you leave the carrier OFF the card should actually not be charged. At least that's usually the recommendation when using an iPad abroad. As far as I know you could actually even remove the SIM card and still use the iPad over wifi – and maybe that would be the best option if you want to be 100% sure your brother's account is not charged.

If I understand your question, the answer is no. To track your phone, you need to have turned on Find My iPhone by logging into iCloud and flicking the Find My iPhone switch. If you logged out of iCloud, you turn off Find My iPhone, and your phone cannot be tracked. Only you can turn off iCloud unless somebody knows, or guessed, your password and turned it ...

I had the same issue and finally found a fix!! Not only did I NOT have wifi, but I didn't even have an option for "wifi" under network preferences. When clicking the (+) under network preferences I only got options for Firewire, Ethernet, Bluetooth DUN, VPN PPPoE, and 6 to 4. I tried a number of "fixes" including terminal commands to manually turn the ...

With your setup of multiple access points sharing the same SSID (network name), your wifi client will use its built-in roaming algorithm to switch. But even if you have a marginal signal (i.e. one bar) on the one that's farther away, most times, the wifi client will stick to that access point, simply because it was the first one configured. To get around ...

You can use for loops. Here's an example: for i in {0..255}; do for j in {0..255}; do for k in {0..255}; do sudo route add 10.$i.$j.$k 10.888.888.888 done; done; done
