My go to for all things Mac accessories is Other World Computing. I can't speak to compatibility, Handoff, or anything of the sort, but their site lists one USB 802.11ac adapter, ... and an AirPort Extreme / Time Capsule Mount. Neat. I don't see anything about a USB Bluetooth 4 adapter. There's only this Bluetooth 2+EDR IOGear adapter. You may want to ...

Your Airport Express should handle the WoL functionality for you. Simply setting up port forwarding to your Mac should work fine. The sleep proxy will see the packet and wake up the host. If you already forward port 22 to your Raspberry Pi, then you'll either have to set your port forward to listen from a different port of your choosing, then forward that ...

It means that the Find My iPhone service cannot contact the iPod. This could be because it's turned off, or because it's out of range of a known Wi-Fi router. If it's asleep, it will still register on Find My iPhone, so it's either run out of battery or not able to get onto Wi-Fi.

When the phone is asleep (also known as hibernation mode), the WiFi radio is shut off after a time to conserve battery power. Anything that occurs on the phone, such as receiving notifications, background app updates, et cetera, uses the cellular network instead of WiFi. The one notable exception would be iCloud backup, for which the phone wakes the WiFi ...

A friend of mine had this happening to him after he upgraded to Mavericks. I managed to fix it by going to 'Network Preferences', then for the desired network open go to TCP/IP, and then choose 'Renew DHCP lease'. He had to do this for every network that his computer previously knew, but only once.

File in use Error is supposed to prevent a scenario where two apps compete to make changes to the same target, thus resulting in a corrupt file. Most files don't need to be locked, so you can piratically edit a .txt file both TextEdit and TextMate simultaneously. When Time Machine accesses a backup file (.sparebundle), it places a Hold on the file, so a user ...

The problem has resolved itself with the update to OS X Yosemite. It must have been a Mavericks issue. I have done nothing to the routers settings prior, and have since been able to enable WMM settings.

I've seen different features when someone is using the airprint driver (which automatically gets assigned to the printer when WiFied) compared to the 'normal' driver via USB. It says if it's airplay or not in system prefs>print&scan "Kind" You can choose what driver you want when you add the printer in the "use:" drop down. Try a couple. If as you say, ...

Judging from the swapping of the words "Media & Quality" to "Quality & Media" in each screenshot, I'd say that when you use the printer with USB, your computer selects a different "draft-able" driver. When the printer is accessed over Wi-Fi, another driver is used, which prohibits Draft mode printing for some reason.

With your setup of multiple access points sharing the same SSID (network name), your wifi client will use its built-in roaming algorithm to switch. But even if you have a marginal signal (i.e. one bar) on the one that's farther away, most times, the wifi client will stick to that access point, simply because it was the first one configured. To get around ...

I had the same issue and finally found a fix!! Not only did I NOT have wifi, but I didn't even have an option for "wifi" under network preferences. When clicking the (+) under network preferences I only got options for Firewire, Ethernet, Bluetooth DUN, VPN PPPoE, and 6 to 4. I tried a number of "fixes" including terminal commands to manually turn the ...

If the bridged AE's are 2nd generation, they need to be plugged in via the WAN port, not the LAN ports! I know there are much newer versions for AE, but for those of you that have old AE 2nd gen's sitting in a closet, take them out and use them to create a roaming network, but remember to plug them into the WAN port, not the LAN. However, on the newer AE's, ...

If I understand your question, the answer is no. To track your phone, you need to have turned on Find My iPhone by logging into iCloud and flicking the Find My iPhone switch. If you logged out of iCloud, you turn off Find My iPhone, and your phone cannot be tracked. Only you can turn off iCloud unless somebody knows, or guessed, your password and turned it ...

Change the routers security to WEP and this problem goes away. However WEP security is less secure and you may have to choose between the lesser of the two evils.

Open Keychain Access from /Applications/Utilities and search for AirPort. All the network passwords are listed as 'AirPort network password' entries. Double-click an entry, then select Show Password and enter your login password to view it.

Sharing internet connection from one iPhone to another works well if one of the iPhone has a valid Data Simcard with internet and personal hotspot is turn on. Once you have done that turn on the wi-fi on the other iPhone that has no internet and let it search search...once detected connect it, that's it. It works well for me and my friends.

The correct form to add a net route is route add -net 10 $GW Obviously you have to replace $GW with the ip address of your gateway.

You can attempt to use (manually configure in networking) a DNS server(s) that are hosted in the US. One possibility is to make note of your ISP's DNS server IP addresses when you're at home and then manually configure those when abroad.

Try Unlocator. It is a service to make it look like you are somewhere other than where you are. They have a seven-day trial so you can see if it does what you need. I'm not affiliated with the company, just a satisfied customer.

I suggest you perform the following steps to cycle the power to your wireless card: Open the Terminal application (/Applications/Utilities). Enter the following text (easier to copy and paste): networksetup -setairportpower en0 off; networksetup -setairportpower en0 on This should cycle the power to your wireless card, and hopefully give it the push it ...

Shut down the computer. Plug in the MagSafe Power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if it is not already connected. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time. Press the power button to turn on your computer.

No. If the WiFi signal itself is still 'live' the iPhone doesn't check to see if it's actually connected to the outside world, unfortunately. You need to switch it over manually.

I don't know why it has stopped working. You should file a bug report with Apple. In the meantime, I use an app on my Mac Mini called HandyPrint which allows iOS devices to print wirelessly to non-Airport printers and I suspect this might resolve your issue.

Obviously you joined neighbors network once upon a time. Since you have the "Remember networks this computer has joined" Enabled, it will remember it. Find it and delete it in networks - advanced, or just delete both and next time reconnect in the coffee shop, but do not connect to Free WiFi if showing up when at home. The fact that they have the same ...

Wi-Fi passwords are synchronized via iCloud keychain. That's why your iPhone also knows the password. Try deleting this network from Preferred Networks. Also delete item from your keychain. In Keychain Access.app select iCloud keychain, find the item with the SSID (network name) of your neighbor's network and remove it (Right click -> Remove).

If you leave the carrier OFF the card should actually not be charged. At least that's usually the recommendation when using an iPad abroad. As far as I know you could actually even remove the SIM card and still use the iPad over wifi – and maybe that would be the best option if you want to be 100% sure your brother's account is not charged.

This can happen when (for example) a MacBook computer was used to create it's own Wi-Fi network. The pop-up you see indicates that after you connect to this SSID you won't have internet access. Such networks are called Ad-Hoc networks (more info: Wiki) .

You need to have your Iphone connected to a charger before it will be possible to sync over WiFi From the iOS 8 User Guide: If Wi-Fi syncing is turned on, iPhone syncs when it’s connected to a power source, both iPhone and your computer are on and connected to the same wireless network, and iTunes is open on your computer.

AirDrop uses Bluetooth to create a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network between the devices. Each device creates a firewall around the connection and files are sent encrypted, which actually makes it safer than transferring via email. AirDrop will automatically detect nearby supported devices, and the devices only need to be close enough to establish a good Wi-Fi ...

Bluetooth LE is used for local discovery of other Airdroppers and WiFi direct is used for transmitting anything of meaningful size since it has a MUCH faster xfer rate. And here's a longer version of that explanation.
