You could use Shell script in a Applescript Application that checks the available wifi list. And pops up a notification when the one you want is in the list. The code is commented to explain how it works. on idle -- A on idle handler will run the code within it and then set the app to idle. Using little cpu. It will then repeat this every #n of seconds ...

Use a local account on your mac to connect to the WiFi, then logout again, you won't loose connection, and you'll only have to do this once since your Mac will remember the network.

Had the same problem in my Macbook(15") pro running 10.9.4. I wanted my Mac to be locked while I was away (so configured hot corners) but at the same time did not want it to sleep (irrespective of whether it is connected to power or not) so that my wifi will be "ON" always for my jabber & mails. So here's what I did to prevent Mac from sleeping: Open ...

The ac is 5GHz signal. The way the radio waves work is the higher the frequency the lover the range. However, the signal strength is only one factor. With your signal strength on 5GHz network you will still get much higher data throughput, then on the b, g, n (which is on 2.5 GHz WiFi). Unfortunately the 5GHz is also more sensitive to the ...

It uses Bluetooth to look for nearby devices. You can read more about it on AppleInsider: It should be understood that AirDrop is a proximity-limited technology, meaning that it will only work when two or more users are near each other. This is illustrated by the requirement that a compatible device, which will be limited to the iPhone 5 or later, ...

From your analysis you have a typical interference problem within channel 6 and 802.11b use. This interference problem might have appeared after a move of only a few centimeters. The day before you were protected from your neighbour interference with a glass, this day when moving out of the shadow of this glass you are under the full light from the AP (or ...

You might want to look at the terminal command tcpdump as it will show all the traffic passing over your network. You have to run it via sudo but it should give you what you want. sudo tcpdump -vv -i en0 Should show everything over your ethernet port.

What you are asking to do is not possible (my internet has gone out enough times in the last few weeks that I've tried). If your carrier allows Personal Hotspot, however, you can turn it on and have the AirPlay device connect to the network the phone creates, and then AirPlay will work just fine.

Ok, so the problem here was that somehow my iPhone was connected to iCloud... But it wasn't at the same time... This is really weird, and Apple should at least notify on this somehow, because my iPhone was connected to iCloud and synced. Wow. Worked the same for me, though also required e) after a) to d): a) going to the apple discussions (as mentioned) ...

This is a problem when the app does not disable the icon appropriately when it is finished with network operations.

First I'd recommend you to reset your network-settings: Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. But many users have the same problem as you see in the official apple-forum. So it looks like that apple is the problem here, because there are some unfixed bugs. So the only "real" solution is to wait for apple to fix it.

I had exactly the same issue with MBP Retina 13 and Dell 2408 DVI2mini-display and what helped here was to pull out the dvi-cable completely (as i tried to move away as far as possible from the monitor and then moved closer.) At the end I was 30-40cm away but with straight cable and now WiFi still works.

Your phone would require to be jailbroken to get "Vestigo", a tweak available through Cydia. It does 90% of what you're asking for. I say 90% because you'll need to have a Cydia app called "wifitoggle" (at least I think it was called like that) and yet another app called "Activator." Activator is simply an app that allows you to set custom gestures, i.e. ...
