If possible, it will be easier to connect the Freenas box and iMac to the router; or if all machines are gigabit capable, you could plug both machines to a gigabit switch (cheap and easily available) and then connect the switch to the router. Either way you'll have a fast wired connection to your backup and the router will handle the, ahem, routing. This way ...

Solution found: On the iMac, we must first enable port forwarding by entering the following command in Terminal: echo "rdr pass inet proto tcp from any to any port 12345 -> 192.168.2.x port 548" | sudo pfctl -ef - replace 192.168.2.x with whatever your FreeNAS is reporting as its IP address. You will also have to enter your account password when ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

@tubedogg's suggestion fixed my problem: make sure the iPhone has the Settings > Personal Hotspot screen visible when I attempt to connect with the Mac. I've done that now the last 5 or so times and it's worked every time.

In my case, the only thing I found to actually fix the problem was to change country settings in my router to USA. Routers and Wireless interfaces have different "profiles" for different world region due to regulations that change between country to country. In my case I suspect that someone have some buggy implementation on their side (maybe my router, ...

In Parallels you have a few choices of how to connect to a Network or Internet, Shared Networking, Bridged Ethernet Networking and Host-Only Networking. In all of these the Guest OS/VM only sees a Wired Ethernet Adapter as that is what the software provides. It does not provide a Wi-Fi Network Adapter even though the Guest OS/VM can connect to a Network or ...

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.

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 ...

I found this answer here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6803542, a guy named 'Todd Berliner' had similar issues.

You have explicitly written that you tested both 2.4GHz en 5GHz, nevertheless I am still giving this as an anser. In short: In your new software setup, I think your bluetooth uses the same frequency as your WiFi, they are proberbly both on 2.4GHz. Change your WiFi to fixed 5GHz if possible or choose try 2.4GHz channels (some users see big differences on ...

The simplest would be to just retype the pass. if you don't know it, then you cannot access the password saved. Here is an explanation. And if you can, configure a certificate authority and a key (That would be shared between your iPhone and iPad) to access the Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, on the iPhone it is not possible to access this information. The ...

Is there an "Automatic" location? I can remember when I first got my Mac Mini I was having trouble with the networking. I set it to "Automatic" and it worked fine.

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.

Not sure if you tried, but move it to different location, to see if it is a signal strength. Or turn all other devices off from wifi to see if you have channel crowding. Open the Router set up page and look if MacMini is showing in it. Lets try to connect using Terminal, please follow the steps. Manually connect to WiFi Turn On networksetup ...

Figured out the problem. I had a HDD connected to the AE that had a bad cable. Once I replaced the USB cable for the HDD, ever other client was able to connect again. Quite an odd symptom of the problem!!!

It would largely come down to the hardware components (i.e., related to wireless communication) that each device is composed of. From the Apple store, you can inspect the list of components within a given device. You want to identify the specific part number/name and the manufacturer. Some device review sites might provide that info as well. You can then ...

From the question: Create AirPort network from the command line? A program compiled from source code on https://gist.github.com/wolever/4418079 do works on 10.10, and it creates an infrastructure AP. But, it only allows a WEP password, which is not considered safe. So, I'll keep this question open for a better solution.

The feature I'm after is called: Instant Hotspot It seems like an iPhone 4S cannot do this feature. From what people are saying, it's an iPhone 5 or newer. Apple also confirm this. Sad.Panda :(

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 ...

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 ...

Another thing to check is make sure IPV6 is configured as Link Local Only. To check go to System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced > TCP/IP. Also check for the Ethernet connection also. Also check the configuration of any Apple Routers and Apple Express units you may have for IPV6 configurations and change them to Link Local. I did this and my wifi is ...

Not knowing the numerous walkthroughs you executed, there are a few things you can try (which you may have done already.) The easiest is to remove all the Preferred Networks from System Preferences > Network > Wifi > Advanced button. Select each network and click the minus symbol. Then turn off wifi and restart it. Lastly, re-join the network you are having ...

This could be something as simple as your wifi router being that bit to far away, or being blocked by something such as too many walls or interfering devices for the startup problem. For the wifi dropping problem, MacBooks now drop wifi while asleep and on battery power to conserve it. There doesn't appear to be a way to turn this off, I myself just put the ...

I had same problem with my Mac Mini. I changed network's name and Mac Mini recognized new network. It meant that issue was only with my Mac. I "forgot" this network (Settings -> Network -> WiFi -> Advanced (OS X 10.10.3), selected missing network and removed it from Preferred Networks) and connected to my network.

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.

The question was whether one could configure an Airport EXTREME in client mode. The first "answer" answered whether an Airport EXPRESS could be configured in client mode. I am using Airport Utility 6.3.5 to configure both an Airport Express and an Airport Extreme. When configuring the Express, "join a network" is an option; but not with an Extreme. ...

The MacBook Air (from early 2008) does neither have a Recovery HD by default nor an Internet Recovery.

If the iPhone decides that the cellular data connection will provide a better connection quality, it will choose that connection over a poor Wi-Fi connection. However, given no other choice (because you've turned off cellular data) the iPhone will attempt to maintain the poor connection over Wi-Fi. There is no way around this other than to improve the Wi-Fi ...

An Access Point would be sufficient - & cheapest. [just some examples from Amazon, no recommendations specifically.

You wire it via your ...
