The best solution I use for adding the SSID to the menu bar is turning off Apple's menu item and using WiFi Signal app from Adrian Granados: https://www.adriangranados.com/?q=apps/wifi-signal https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wifi-signal/id525912054?mt=12 It's much fuller featured than just displaying the SSID, but it does that job nicely. I am a very ...

A solution does in fact exist. Click the Wi-Fi symbol in the menu bar and choose Create Network.

If you have iCloud Keychain enabled, the prioritized list of networks from your Mac will sync to your phone, including the order. If you don't want to enable it, though, I do not know of any way to arrange networks on the phone by priority, except by forgetting them all and adding them in order of desire (the ones added earlier in the process will be ...

No. If Wi-Fi is off, the radio is disabled, and it is no longer augmenting Location Services. Often, you'll receive a message like the following to alert you to this:

It turned out to be problems with "overheating", so I installed Macs Fan Control and set it a bit aggresive, ie linear, and it "solved" it.

It goes from ca 40C to 95C in mere seconds ...

That mechanism is in place to protect customers unaware of the data limits and to conserve the network's bandwidth, this means that everyone gets an equal share of the network. Although what I normally do is USB tether to my Mac then Wi-Fi share the USB connection then connect to that with my iPhone

Use VLANs. Put your wifi on one VLAN, and your internal network on another VLAN. Don't allow wifi users to access the internal VLAN, and make sure hard wired connections are on the internal VLAN. This lets your switch/router handle the job, instead of setting up individual routes on employee machines.

To get that working you have to be able to create an ad-hoc network with one of the two Wi-Fi interfaces. It works at least with Airport but only without any Wi-Fi security like WEP/WPA/WPA2. I don't have access to a RTL8188cus, so I don't know if its driver allows a "safer" wireless networking. Additionally you have to install a lightweight DNS/DHCP ...

I am experiencing the same problem. The issue is the router. There are a number of reasons why the router would do this....memory of the router is too small, too many connections for it to handle, to just poor quality components. The way you can verify that it is the router is by Pinging the router (which you did and it failed) Pinging another device on ...
