I have been having the same problem. Changing the name of the SSID fixes it immediately. But if I ever happen to switch off the router and switch it back on, the problem recurs and I have to think of yet another name.

Short of asking them to simply blacklist your MAC address on the work network… You'll have to remove one device or the other from iCloud Keychain. On the Mac or iPhone, go to System Preferences > iCloud and deselect Keychain. Then when you remove the Wi-Fi network on your Mac, it will not affect the iPhone.

Click the Apple on your MBP and select System Preferences... and then choose Network. Click Advanced at the bottom and WiFi should be highlighted. In that is Preferred Networks. Select the work on and hit the - to remove it. Then connect to the MiFi and in that same area, click the +. Should be all set then!

It is possible to use Wireshark with monitor mode enabled to essentially do the job of airodump-ng. This will allow for capture of raw 802.11 frames which will show the traffic from APs and clients. It needs to be remembered that the WiFi device can only listen on one channel at a time so you'll only see the traffic on the channel it's set to. You can choose ...

This article should help you greatly: http://www.wired.com/2015/10/a-new-ios-9-feature-is-eating-your-cellular-data/ There is also a list in settings that lists how much data various apps use. It's most likely Mail or Messages using so much data for push notifications. If you switch to a 5-minutely update rather than push, then you might have better ...

Use tcpdump -I. -I will put the chosen interface into monitor mode, and doesn't need to be connected to an access point. The full command would be (if your Wi-Fi interface is en0): sudo tcpdump -Ii en0

My solution requires a connection to an access point; however, no actual access point must exist. Creating an Ad Hoc access point on OS X From the Wi-Fi Status icon in the menu bar, choose Create Network. Give your ad hoc network a name Choose security type (not required) and click Create. Now you can run tcpdump without connection to a valid access ...

Access Spotlight - either with cmd + spacebar or by clicking the magnifying icon on the right top corner of your screen Search for Activity Monitor. Select the far-right tab titled Network and you will find a description of all the network processes going on on your machine. If there's a high network consumption process, you'll be able to spot it.

I created a script and launch agent that will automatically connect to a VPN connection when it cannot ping a specific address. It could probably be modified in a way that looks at wifi network whitelist and connects to the VPN if the current wifi is not in that list. As it is right now the vpn will always try to connect if it cannot hit an address that is ...

Here is another option: I created a script and launch agent to accomplish this. The agent calls a shell script every 30 seconds and tries to ping an IP address that is static on the vpn network. If it cannot ping that IP it enables your vpn connection. If you are home, the script will be able to ping that address and will not connect to the vpn. Clone the ...

I'am using an Airport router along with another router (modem). I had no problem for years and it recently become so annoying my experience tell me that the router need to be retired. I do a hard reset first - if it works I will keep it.

I've had similar problems with macbooks. I've found that going into "Network Preferences" / "Location" / "Edit Location" and creating a new location can work. Here's another option: set your IP manually to an IP the router will accept, instead of by DHCP. If your other devices connect at 192.168.1.25, for example, configure yours to 192.168.26 (keep it ...

As a sidenote, the phones WiFi chip seems to be defective, WiFi will work no matter how old the iOS-version is. Maybe try resetting network settings in Settings - General. Anyhow - I believe your only option will be to use a cable to get the pictures off the phone. Have you tried all the computers you have at home? Some devices give out more juice than ...

The airport extreme should be connected as just a device with the cisco router handling DHCP and NAT. in the airport configuration go to the Network Tab and click the double headed arrow under Router Mode set it to "Off(Bridged Mode) You can then go to Wireless and set that how ever you want all traffic will go to the cisco router and either be forwarded ...

You can multi-select & delete from System Prefs > Network > WiFI > Advanced… Shift ⇧ or Cmd ⌘ Click to select multiples, then hit the — button underneath. Note that this will also clear the same settings from any linked iDevice.

My AirPort Wireless card was broken Turns out a spider crawled into my computer, nested itself under the wireless card, and died in direct contact with the wireless card. Go figure. The guy who looked at it said there was water damage (ew), and, after disabling the wireless card (software-wise), my crashes stopped as well. The crashes were the main reason ...

Apple Watch connects to wifi networks it has connected whilst being linked via Bluetooth with your iPhone:https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204562 So, let's say you forget your phone at home but you're wearing your watch at work. Your watch will recognise the wifi network and still give you your notifications over wifi. You might also need to mirror ...

For OS X 10.9, instead of locking your Mac consider using the following command in terminal: open -a /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Versions/A/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app The command starts the ScreenSaveEngine.app which locks the screen without disconnecting the Wi-Fi. I am not sure if it works on other versions of OS X.

Try changing the Wi-Fi channel in your router's configuration options. Often times one's neighborhood is full of residents all using the same channel, which results in loads of interference. Find Best Wi-Fi Channel

Never game/stream on Wireless. Run Ethernet cable. Wireless bandwidth drops tremendously when another connection is streaming or gaming. It has to do with the way routers split or share bandwidth.

My idea (based on this) is a bit different than William's. It doesn't work with Fast User Switching but maybe one could use parts of William's stuff to mix it in. This shell script should be placed in /usr/local/bin executable and owner root. The different locations (in Network Preferences) must have the names of the users and must be configured/populated. ...

This should do it, although it may need some modification. Every time a user switches, a system log entry is created. Knowing this, you can monitor for user switches quite effortlessly: global wifi_device on run set wifi_device to do shell script "networksetup -listallhardwareports|grep -A1 'Wi-Fi'|grep Device|sed 's;Device: ;;'" end run on idle set ...

I recently had similar issues with Macbook air keep dropping wifi and constantly searching wifi. I knew it was not because of my wifi router because my android device had stable connection. Upon trying different tricks such as restarting network etc, none seems to work. I finally came up with a temporary fix. I opened the network preference on Mac and ran ...

Put it all together, I wrote a script to accomplish this task: #!/bin/bash services=$(networksetup -listnetworkserviceorder | grep 'Hardware Port') while read line; do sname=$(echo $line | awk -F "(, )|(: )|[)]" '{print $2}') sdev=$(echo $line | awk -F "(, )|(: )|[)]" '{print $4}') #echo "Current service: $sname, $sdev, $currentservice" ...

A common solution to this kind of problem is a complete restore (possibly in DFU mode). Before proceeding, make a backup of the entire content of your iPhone via iTunes or iCloud. Then, download the latest firmware available via iTunes. Charge the battery entirely before the restore, just to be sure that the iPhone won't shut down during the process. Proceed ...

i suspect the battery connecter needs soldered back on the board.

I got it fixed by changing Wi-Fi channel in my router. I figured out my neighbor and I was on the same channel and his network signals were interfering with my Wi-Fi signals. So I changed my wireless channel from 1 to 11 by logging into the router and changing wireless settings.

The problem was I didn't have DCHP enabled on the Airport, but when I did, the internet wouldn't work at all on all devices, when with it disabled, it worked on some. So I contacted both my ISP (Bell/2Wire) and Apple. I had to setup the Airport to use PPPoE and I received that information over a call with my ISP. The quickest route was to just reset both, ...

I am having the same problem and have fought with it. A device will connect to the wireless network created by El Capitan, BUT never get an Ip Address. Been googling and think it has something to do with bootpd (The daemon that acts as a DHCP server) not working properly. BUT with the changes in El Capitan, I am not even sure if this is how it works ...

The simplest solution would be to change the network password. This can be done from the Airport Utility application found in your Applications > Utilities folder. This will disconnect all devices, so it would require entering the new password in your devices including your connected printer. Airport Utility also will show you devices connected to your ...

Perhaps you can set up a temporary access point at your present location with the same SSID and password, then connect to that? I do not know if the iPhone is going to save some other router-specific identifying information which would prevent connection at the other location, but if you have two routers available to you where you are it would be pretty ...
