The account you are logged in as needs to be configured as an admin account, because the DNS settings affect all users on the system, not just the current user. If it is not an admin account, then you will need to authenticate every time you want to change the DNS settings. If you are logged in using admin account and still have the problem, then open ...

In System Preferences, go to networking and connect your Mac to a wired network. Firewire or thunderbolt or ethernet (with or without an adapter) is needed to have a physical connection in the green or orange state. You need a link up and not necessarily a viable connection to any network. Then go into Sharing and enable Internet Sharing, there, share the ...

iOS detects captive portals by attempting to access http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html or http://captive.apple.com/hotspot-detect.html with the user agent 'wispr'. Should this page request not return "Success", but still return a HTML page, then it shows the captive portal assistant. Make sure that you are correctly serving your captive portal ...

The fact that the network can't be successfully eliminated doesn't appear to have any connection to iCloud, as it happens on my MacBook which is not connected to iCloud. What's happening is that the WIFI network password is being stored in Keychain Access. Until it is eliminated from there the Mac will keep on connecting even though it has been instructed ...

Yes, the SSH server on the Mac will still be accessible to an SSH app on the iPhone. The icon change does not really signify that the WiFi is connected or not - instead it tells you whether or not the iPhone detected internet access via WiFi. In this case it does not, and it is not necessary for it to do so, so the icon does not change. Just disregard the ...

Yes. You can. However the Apple Mac OS X operating system has SSH installed by default but the SSH daemon is not enabled. This means you can’t login remotely or do remote copies until you enable it. To enable it, go to ‘System Preferences’. Under ‘Internet & Networking’ there is a ‘Sharing’ icon. Run that. In the list that appears, check the ‘Remote ...

Assuming those cameras work like the ones I've used, all you do is connect your computer and the cameras to the same Wi-Fi router, and you'll be able to do everything normally, on one network. You should never have to create multiple physical networks like that unless you're setting up a corporate network, with multiple access points.

Your 10.9.5 and your Router are having problem of identity. Your 10.9.5 can not find the correct name, or your router is not broadcasting it correctly. So try changing the name of your Network, and make sure it is moved to the Top of the Network list and choose different Chanel. Also you could tell the router that your MAC address belongs to trusted ...

It's a combination of the Mac mini and the xfinity router. I've had this problem with multiple Apple devices over the years, but only when using the xfinity router. Do yourself a favor, buy a really good router and just use a cable modem. I guarantee this will fix the problem.

I have solved this indirectly in the past several times like this: One Mac (the one that is supposed to never sleep) has a Energy Saver schedule to wake up or power on every morning at 2:55 AM. It's set to not sleep, but it also has launchd jobs (cron is fine too if you want to maintain that older scheduling method) that SSH in to the client Macs. The ...

Option click the wifi icon in the menu bar and select Wireless Diagnostics. Follow the instructions and post a second question if you get stuck with a specific step or can't narrow down the issue. Also, carefully read the help guide on how to be specific and show how your research such as what version of OS X and what router is not working as expected.

“Current Channel” means “Number of Networks Using the Current Channel”. Your current channel is channel 2. Your computer found 1 network that uses channel 2. This is made more clear in the wireless_diagnostics log created by Wireless Diagnostics. There is a section that looks similar to this: # --- Wireless Environment 2.4 GHz Networks : 14 ...

The iPhone has GPS. This doesn't require Wi-Fi or cellular towers and isn't disabled when you turn on Airplane mode.

The TP-Link website does state that the TL-WN721N wifi adapter is only supported by windows. However, you may be able to install drivers for the chipset of your adapter, possibly allowing it to work. Once you have determined the chipset of your adapter, you may be able to download unix drivers for it from the chipset manufacturers' website, or, from another ...

I went to Network Preferences, selected the hotel's Wi-Fi name > Advanced > DNS. There I removed the DNS value filled in with the little minus icon and it worked!
