All three of your VMs are stored on your NAS, correct? I am not surprised that they are all slow. You are streaming tons of data over a network and expecting it to work as if it were being used locally. Virtual machines perform a lot of disk IO. Using network storage for VHD files and other resources that are used by your VMs is not really a great idea if ...

Tyilo's NetworkAutoLogin project on github is an os.x daemon that "Automagically logs into to Captive Portal Networks" with user-supplied credentials. It uses PhantomJS & CasperJS to post the necessary info to the fields on the captive portal login page. Could be the secret login "password", a username-password pair, or just activating a EULA checkbox ...

See my response to this question on the Apple discussions. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5770041?tstart=0 Basically, use a static configuration for your WiFi Network, but leave the Router IP address blank. The LTE icon will be displayed, and the mobile network used for all non-local traffic (ie, Internet) but you will still be connected to the WiFi ...

I had the exact same issue with a 2 year old iPhone. I read up on it all day and tried everything. Last ditch - I tried a weird solution I found online and it worked. Overheat the iPhone gently with a hot hair dryer until it gives the Temperature alert and goes into recovery mode. Now put it in a Ziplock bag and place it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. If ...

4 bars = 100% signal 3 bars = 75% signal 2 bars = 50% signal 1 bar = 25% signal Why is it that you have signals with 4 bars and you can not connect could be other problem than signal strength. I use the RSSI as indicator, and the Noise as second indicator on signals that show >50%. With those 2 values one can decide if the WiFi is worthwhile. In this ...

I have found a few apps in the App Store that claim to be both an FTP client and server. That means you can run a server on an iPhone, connect to it from a Mac, transfer files to my phone, and then to a remote server (or vice versa). This would greatly simplify the process. The apps are: FTP On The Go Pro Easy FTP Pro FilesConnect FTPManager iStorage 2 ...

Yes... Add the network to your phone. Then touch the "i" next to the network and change "Auto-Join" to off. Turn off wifi and then turn it back on. You will notice that you are now on the cell network. However, if you touch the wifi network that you just updated (in settings), you will then log into it. Then can repeat...to return to the cell network ...

You can use ControlPlane for this. It allows you to control your context, like home and other, and set actions for it: when 'enter' home context, enable file sharing, when 'leave' home context, disable file sharing.

Of course, in the future, you could just temporarily change your wifi back to the old settings that match the iPad, allow it to connect, and then when complete, change your wifi back to the new settings.

I found a (much less than satisfactory) solution to the problem. There is a slight delay between when pressing "cancel" on the iCloud password prompt and when the next popup opens. I was able to navigate to the WiFi settings, and after a lot of frustration, was able to connect to my new wireless network. After doing so, the prompt accepted my updated ...

Unfortunately you can't use your Macbook to extend your wireless network in this way. It seems to only be able to connect to an existing Wi-Fi network or create its own. It can't extend an existing Wi-Fi. Three options are: 1) Purchase a Thunderbird to Ethernet adapter so you can connect the Macbook to the network over ethernet and then share the ethernet ...

This probably happens because some of the wireless settings have gone wrong. It's hard to tell exactly what went wrong without more information, but you can reset your network settings by the following: Go to Settings > General > Reset Network Settings. Then try connecting to your wifi again. (or you could try turning the iPad off and on again :)

You can use Sidekick which lets you perform 'actions' when changing location. The location is reported using the specific Wi-Fi, which means you can do things when the Wi-Fi changes. Sidekick is an application that automatically updates your laptop settings based on where you are. Just install the app, configure the places that you frequent, (home, work, ...

ControlPlane supports multiple contexts where a context is defined as a location or activity you are performing. Using evidence sources you can create a set of rules that tell ControlPlane what context ...

You will not be able to boot from an original retail copy of Snow Leopard (10.6) as your Air requires 10.6.4 or later. Your old drive should boot your Air as long as the installed OS is 10.6.4 or newer. If your old Mac is still accessible and the external drive has 10.6.8 or newer you could do worse than download the Mavericks installer and create a USB ...

I have a Mac Book Pro with 10.6.8, fully functional until yesterday. I've upgraded to 10.9.4 and now the Wi-fi is dead, not even connects or show the avaiable nets. The icon says on tooltip there are no hardware installed. Please let me know if you got any success. I'll do the same.

Have a look to a different script for the same purpose, but with a slightly different approach. It uses the same SystemConfiguration trigger, thus. The problem on Mavericks seem rather to be respawning the original script over and over by launchd. I'm successfully running it on Mavericks 10.9.3. The Script can be found here: ...

It all depends on: How fast should it be (150, 300 Mbs) ect. Next it depends on WiFi signal strength you have. Since you wont be using the build in WiFi antenna make sure the USB has good signal reception capability. In principle, as a guide, the smaller the USB the lower the signal reception (not much space for antenna).

I am running windows 8.1 on a macbook air 2012 and the screen mirroring is working flawlessly (1920 X1080). The TV connects as a projector under devices and you can either duplicate, extend or display on tv only. If you really want the screen mirroring function you should install windows 8.1 which supports this out of the box.

You could try something like FireChat. I have not tried it personally, but it is touted as "a new way to chat: 'off-the-grid'." It uses iOS 7's mesh networking capabilities to achieve this. Now you can chat with people around you – even if there is no Internet connection or mobile phone coverage. Whether you’re on the beach or in the subway, at a ...

Are you sure someone isn't playing a joke on you? Just rename the service. Click the ⚙ icon... Then rename the server.

Is there any IP address assigned? And if so, does it come from your router? (e.g., is it in the same range as a computer or other device that is connected to the same router? ) If it happens to start with 169.254.x.x, then there probably is something wrong with one of the router settings (probably DHCP not configured properly), as that indicates that your ...

To answer your question. I have the same configuration as you. OS: Mavericks iOS: 7.1.1. Hardware: iPhone 5s and MBP Late 2013 They are both in same wifi network.

Make sure you enable WiFi all the time. Even if you don’t have cellular data or connected to Internet, the device can still estimate your location based on the surrounding WiFi source. Update: Maps will use the surrounding WiFi (protected or not) to pinpoint your position. That might explain why it only occasionally works. If your iPad can’t find any WiFi ...

It's something built in the system . Sometimes it's able to detect a captive portal and it displays it in a separate window. As @George Garside pointed out, it's a separate program located at /System/Library/CoreServices/Captive Network Assistant.app. Also, if you have a iDevice you'll see a similar feature.
