The volume is controlled by your device, and that's why it is instant. The media you are playing is being transported over WiFi, and is therefore subject to a number of speed-influencing issues including: Internal/External Causes (Streaming from a home device such as a computer on the same network, some issues also cause problems to external sites and ...

I am not sure if you can directly filter SSIDs from that list. However there are a couple ways to hide the Wifi icon from the bar. Click on the icon -> "Open network preferences" --> Bottom of that window is a checkbox. "Show Wifi Status in Menu Bar". The other option, would be to use an application like Bartender. It cost money, but will let you ...

Just to make sure, check with network admin that your MAC address is not blocked :) The message posted indicates you might have a Firewall setting issue. Open About this Mac + more info + system report and find the Firewall. Check the settings there making sure it is not blocking that network somehow. Also make sure you do not have a 3D party Network ...

Just leave it alone and it'll go away. I had the same problem on my phone and it didn't go away for about a day. It turned out that I was checking how much space I had used up and it was still loading all the information.

Free method that works, with a jailbroken iPhone at least: 1) Install openSSH on your iPhone from cydia, or apt-get, if you prefer the terminal. 2) Install python 2.7.x.      As of this writing the latest version is 2.7.6. 3) download libusbmuxd.      https://github.com/libimobiledevice/libusbmuxd ...

I face this issue in small businesses that with OS X. I have yet to find a good solution other than disconnect and reconnect to grab the closer IP.

Is this what you're looking for? WiFi Sharing If so, you can create a network with the same SSID and password as your existing network

What you are trying to do is indeed possible, but it requieres a lot of work to get it working. I thought about that for a while and it is a great Idea to use a mac as Wifi-Router, especially in Virtual-Test-Environments. But Mac OS X does not work like that. The reason for that is, that Mac OS X only starts the service, if you really have Internet ...

This type of network is know as an Ad-hot network. The procedure to create one is listed here: http://www.maclife.com/article/columns/maclife_101_how_create_adhoc_network After creating an Ad-hoc network, you will see it listed in the list of wifi networks on your iOS device. Note that you wont be able to connect to the internet using your WiFi connection ...

To get the drive mounted at login, drag the mounted volume to the Login Items in System Preferences → Users & Groups for the user that you want the volume auto mounting. To set the permissions, Get Info (⌘I) on the drive and set the permissions in the Sharing & Permissions section.

So you can see the wi-fi networks list but you can't connect to your specific wi-fi or...? To be sure it's not some weird problem with iOS you should probably just "Restore iPhone..." with iTunes and check for an iOS update while you're at it. from Apple's instructions

I get the same results. Only 4 clients receive an IP from the the main AP. Seems to be an undocumented hard limit on the Express when in client / proxysta mode

Interestingly it does show Connected but the WiFi settings are wrong and the Network settings are wrong? Anyway, lets bypass the GUI and use Terminal for some direct commands.

Since you are using the DD-WRT on your router there is a set up you can use to limit the bandwidth for specific IP or MAC. Here are the instructions how to set up the QoS (Quality of Services) and more instructions here.

Sorry about this but I've solved the issue. I went back to the external hard drive I had onto which Boot Camp had downloaded the Windows 7 drivers during the installation process. I had to manually activate the application found in Bootcamp/Drivers/Broadcom/BroadcomWirelessWin7x64. Hopefully this will be helpful to someone else.

That's a great idea! I also found a new app PhotoToMac that transfers your Camera Roll photos to your Mac over WiFi. I installed it immediatly and it works like a charm.

See where System Preferences -> Energy Saver says: Wake for Network Access? If your mac is asleep it can still be accessed via Wi-Fi, and woken up. Power Nap wakes up and connects to services and then disconnects, going into Bonjour Sleep Proxy mode for being woken up again via Wi-Fi. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5963 ...

I don't know the router or the firmware, but if it is only happening when an update occurs on the iPhone, i.e. the iPhone is downloading data, you could possibly limit the bandwidth used by the iPhone on the router?

You want to make sure that your Mac's ethernet device is before the wifi device in the system's network service order. In System Preferences, Go to Network; under the device listing, click the 'gear' icon and select 'Set Service Order.' Drag 'Ethernet' to the top. Per my understanding, all traffic will attempt to be routed through the top-most device, and ...

I'd try one of these: http://www.radiolabs.com/products/antennas/2.4gig/2.4-aluminum-parabolic.php If you are not moving around, and can lock on to one of the towers visually, you could point this antenna at it and try to maximize the weak signal. Kind of like a shotgun microphone or a telephoto lens.

I would recommend searching Amazon (or wherever) for a wifi range extender and finding one that would work on your boat. There's even one that is specifically for boats and comes with a 5M usb cable.

Instead of removing the whole SystemConfiguration folder, just do the following: Turn your Wi-Fi off Open Finder window Press Command+Shift+G Enter "/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/" and hit enter Delete the following files ( com.apple.airport.preferences.plist, com.apple.network.identification.plist, NetworkInterfaces.plist, ...

There's an app called Control Plane that allows you to setup rules for various preferences based on criteria such as what network you just joined, your location, time of day, etc. You could try creating a rule with it that cuts down the network activity on your mac after so many minutes of connecting to the Mifi. http://www.controlplaneapp.com

It is not a problem and it does not search for network unless you prompt it to. Only if you click the AirPort menu bar item to look at the list of networks will it start searching to show you what is out there, since it rightly so assumes you wanted to search for networks.

You cannot enable such System settings via any app (at least without a jailbreak). Objective-c results in an app for an iOS-device, thus you cannot achieve this. Apple does not allow any app which tries to enter the App Store to activate: WiFi Location services Personal hotspot Many more features not named above

I had the usual iPhone 4s symptoms: WiFi greyed out, degraded BlueTooth, very high battery drain. After updating everything and checking each app I finally tried the hair dryer but mine was too weak. I used my heat gun with the temperature on moderate. After 5 minutes the corner of the display started to blacken but would recover as soon as I took the heat ...

This response describes a fix that worked for me: Open up preferences and go to network. Make note of your settings as you will have to rebuild them. Rename the preferences.plist to .old which can be found here: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ Now go back to preferences and rebuild your settings as it will be blank. You may ...

Goto System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Check "Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off" The options may be slightly different depending on what generation macbook you have, but this should help point you to the right place. :)

The iPhone will prefer Wi-Fi over Cellular data, so if you are connected to Wi-Fi your iPhone will use that connection instead of Cellular. To completely disable Cellular data, go to Settings → Cellular and disable Cellular Data. This will prevent your device from using Cellular data at all.

The following are all suggestions I've tried from different sources: moving preferred network to top clearing all WiFi passwords (including those from the keychain) and reconnecting only to the preferred network disabling bluetooth forcefully removing network configuration files adding a fixed DNS server What actually helped was to reset the SMC and ...

How about switching off your modem? I think I experienced the same thing - my iPhone and my Mac both began reporting failure on attempting to connect to my WiFi router (Airport Extreme, 2 or 3 years old). Lucky for me I have two Airport Expresses to extend my network, so I still had WiFi. Oddly, I found that one of them, which connects to my router only ...

Can you see it if you boot from the recovery partition? Try booting while holding down Command-R. Once booted, try to connect to the Wifi. If you can see it in Recovery mode, then it's probably a corrupt system file or cache. If you still can't see it in Recovery mode, I have no idea what the problem is.

As long as your router broadcasts 802.11n or 802.11g WiFi, you should be ok.
