With airdrop it is always a direct connection (usually wifi or a mix of wifi + bluetooth) between the 2 devices. No internet connection is required at all. So you can transfer as much as you like and it will all be local between the devices; "peer to peer" like you say. Your internet quota won't be used at all.

You can not bridge from WiFi to WiFi. You'll have to connect to the internet via a different port if you want to share the connection. I'm assuming the reason you don't connect to the network directly with your iPhone is some kind of client limit. You could use a Wireless Router to connect to the WiFi and repeat and reroute it. If you use an Apple Airport ...

Your issue is being caused by OS X's handling of a wi-fi parameter commonly referred to as roaming threshold. This parameter dictates the point at which an OS will switch to a stronger signal. Windows gives easy access to this parameter, example here, but no simple option exists in OS X. This document from NYU suggests OS X has "aggressive" roaming ...

Without special software or hardware to do so, multiple connections are not combined for increased throughput, knowing as bonding. The connections are utilized in the order shown in System Preferences > Network (screenshot below). You can change the order by clicking the gear icon > Set Service Order. There is no harm in letting the computer connect to the ...

s3-us-west-2-w.amazonaws.com AWS in this domain name stands for Amazon Web Services, while S3 stands for: Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) provides a fully redundant data storage infrastructure for storing and retrieving any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the Web.

Please understand following. You can not receive and transmit from same device (unless is it equipped that way). You Mac is not capable to do that, it is either or. If you for example receive Internet via cable to your Mac then you can share (transmit) it using your Mac WiFi. So the input and output can not be the same. Since you are receiving WiFi, ...

This is quite a workaround to go through and unfortunately involves paying for a software (unless you're aware of free alternatives) but thought I'd throw it out there while looking for more details: Using a program like Keyboard Maestro, you can record a Macro that will be the result of a string/hotkey. I recorded as follows: Hit record Pressed and ...

Yes, I do believe you can include some or all of that functionality. Look at GoodReader's features, for example. It does wifi transfers, and it will connect to network shares. Some supported protocols include FTP, SFTP, SMB, AFP, etc. IIRC, I used a copy of it on my iPhone and a copy on my iPad to transfer files. Good luck!

Wi-Fi has multiple channels, which specify what frequency the network is communicating on. On the 2.4GHz frequency, channels 1, 6, and 11 are non-overlapping channels, and all the others overlap on these channels. (On the 5GHz frequency, the channels are spaced out to avoid overlapping). You can think of channels as an offset value from 2.4GHz. Current ...

When you were at the office, did you use a different network like a AT&T/Verizon/Sprint hotspot? Next time, try testing at a Starbucks or another public wifi first. More than likely the VPN server dosen't allow loop backs (meaning you are in the network to start, go out, to come back in). It probably just connected you. What VPN (server) are you ...
