Start off by eliminating variables. Test using speedtest.net in your Mac, and explicitly select the server. Do the same on your phone. Or test using speedof.me on the phone. Otherwise you're comparing apples to oranges - they use different servers.

In my case it turned out to be the router. It was an old 802.11g router that I replaced with a 5GHz 802.11n router. It works great now, no problems whatsoever.

Disable WiFi Open Finder Press Cmd+Shft+G to go to the folder /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ Delete (or move) the following files: com.apple.airport.preferences.plist NetworkInterfaces.plist preferences.plist Restart your computer ...

I'm afraid you can't. Extending networks only works between Apple products and the Time Capsule does not have a "client mode", as the Airport Express. You could buy a router that can connect wirelessly to your ISP Modem - Router, and connect the TC by an ethernet cable to it, in order to keep using it as a Time Machine destination. You would have to put the ...

I was having a similiar issue with 10.10.3 which was not corrected when I updated to 10.10.4. Many, many things were tried before I got it to stay connected to WiFi reliably, however deleting the networking PLIST files seems to be what finally did it. The Fix: Disable WiFi Open Finder Press Cmd+Shft+G to go to the folder ...

Mac does have the Logitech Unifying Software, which opens up the pairing options; add and remove items from a receiver, as well as update firmware (which seems to be perpetually greyed out no matter what I do on my Mac's and PC's, but that's a problem for another day.) Version 1.1.301 works with OSX 10.4 - 10.6 and is found here. Otherwise you can get all ...

You should confirm with Verizon, but the plans I've seen never have 'hotspot' capability on an unlimited plan.

I did read somewhere that iPhone's have a "feature" where is gives preference to a) the last connected wifi b) alphabetical ordering of the SSID. I tried adding the letter "a" to the name of the AP I wanted to give preference to, and this seemed to work. The the problem I have now is that it stays connected to this connection too long when the signal is too ...

Boot the computer to Recovery (hold Command and R on restart) and ensure it connected to your WiFi network. Then select Get Help Online. This actually loads a file stored in Recovery, so type in a URL and see if it loads. If it does not, your computer is not the issue.

I'm not sure what version of OS X the other answer or original question is for but it's not accurate on 10.10 Mavericks. You need this: security find-generic-password -D "802.1X Password" Maybe networks using actual Apple AirPort hardware are saved in the keychain Differently?

My portal is implemented by redirecting all traffic at an IP level to a local server, which then generates a genuine HTTP redirect to our portal. Ok. But you miss another part.

Try modifying some parameters, one at a time, and see if you're able to connect: As suggested, try different security settings on your wireless network: WEP, WPA, WPA2 (TKIP/AES); open (no wireless security). Don't forget to set up security back after troubleshooting. Enable / disable WPS Test different wireless modes: 802.11n only, g+n, g only Updating ...

Let us check your Macbook WiFi settings and possible source of problems. We established that you have good WiFi signal and low Noise. If those remain constant (more or less) then the problem could be in: Open Network in your System preferences and Click on Advanced: First check if your WiFi (name) is at the top of the list of WiFi (names). Here I do not ...

1.) Go to SETTINGS next to your networks name there's a blue arrow click on that. 2.) Now turn ON auto-join 3.) Turn OFF auto-log in 4.) It Works!

Usually when the WiFi connection is still active but no data is flowing indicates Chanel crowding (to many devices/users on same channel). If the WiFi is disconnecting that could be number of other reasons. But since you are talking about the speed going down... When the MCS index is zero (0) then the channel crowding is a issue. The MCS needs to be at ...

try renaming /System/Library/CoreServices/Captive Network Assistant.app, i used "no Captive Network Assistant.app" and restarted my Mac. It's not a real solution just a workaround, it might be related to Apple Servers or something, but it works. Still waiting for Apple to solve this issue. Hope this helps!

Yeah auto-login was somehow turned on for me. Once I turned it off it worked.

I had the same problem this morning and it was solved by turning off the auto connection and auto log in.

The same thing happens to me! I don't know how to permanently solve this problem, however, but I find that turning Wifi off then on will solve the issue. This is only temporary though, because it always seems to drop the Wifi once every while.

Sharing wifi to your phone is a piece of cake. Your computer just can't bridge a network. Go to System Preferences -> Sharing and enable the network. Then connect to it from your iPhone. Traveling on an airplane would not affect the performance of your computer's wifi, and yes, at least in the U.S., you are allowed to do that above 10,000' feet (although ...

There's a rather easy solution. Right click your clock, select "Open date & time preferences". Click "Time Zone" and select "Tokyo - Japan". Then either reboot or go to sleep mode. After you power up you should see all of the channels.

Most devices choose the strongest signal. So set the 5GHz AP(s) to maximum power and then just diminish the broadcast power of the 2.4GHz AP(s) until 5GHz is seen to be preferable. The price you pay is that any 2.4-only devices will have even more problems with congestion. But perhaps escaping congestion on most devices is worth that.

It's hard to comment on your question as you didn't give many details. You could connect a switch with monitor/mirror port functionality between your router and your DSL modem/network terminator (if that is two discrete devices for you). This way you could connect a computer to the switch's mirror port and "see" (snoop, trace) all traffic that goes out your ...

You should try to do a PRAM reset. You do it by holding command + shift + P + R on the MacBook keyboard on start-up, when it does the boot sound the second time, stop holding the keys. This should solve. Even though I suggest you to use an ethernet cable with your MacBook lid closed. If your setup isn't near your modem try using some powerlines. Here you ...

Wi-Fi dropping and losing Internet connection are two totally separate things. If your Wi-Fi drops, you lose connectivity to everything on your network. If your Internet drops, you only lose connection to the outside world, your internal network is still good. Below is a general picture of a home network with Intenet. (The cable modem used here can ...

The question you are asking seems unclear, but I think you are asking if you can share internet connectivity from your computer to your iPhone (or other iOS devices) via Bluetooth. In this case the answer is no this is not possible, however you can share via Wi-Fi. You can share (tether) your iPhone, or Cellular iPad's data connections to your computer via ...

The fix provided by Buscar is a good one, but it's only temporary. Channel crowding is a problem that will only become worse, not better. As more and more people buy wireless routers, range extenders, and additional access points to solve their connection issues, you are going going to run out of channels. Manually setting your channel today will fix ...

Man...that's rough. If you have been backing up to iTunes or iCloud, your stuff should be there. You are backing up, right? There are a couple more options you can try before you take your iphone in for repair to get at your data: Bluetooth Keyboard - just connect and enter your pin Voice Over - triple tap the home button and "say" your pin Both of ...

Your MCS is zero (0) which would explain why your WiFi is slow. That can happen if there is channel crowding (not only from your devices but neighbors included). You could just change the channel for now 1 to 5 and try. Or you could do a quick analysis of the channels do following: In Spotlight type "Wireless Diagnostics" Click on Wireless diagnostics ...

After lots of fumbling I discovered that the wifi speed is inversely proportional to the CPU temperatures. I installed TG Pro and found that, without altering the internal fan speed or using external cooling, the CPU's would approach 200 F after about 30 min of on time. With TG Pro I was able to increase the internal fan speed (from the built in speed of ...

It does sound like you are trying to connect to an enterprise network and you have 802.11x authentication. If this is NOT the case and you need to enter a username/password in a web page, then you may need to create an AppleScript/Automator function to handle that. In any event, to connect to an 802.11x network with authentication, you need a network ...

There are a lot of situations in which your phone, while connected via WiFi, might need to make a cellular connection. This would include normal communication with a cell tower, incoming calls, Visual Voicemail, or depending on your WiFi signal and performance, additional data from apps.

I know what your trying to ask here. When you do you speed test are you downloading the movie at the same time? If yes then the mbps will consistently change so when your over wifi and when your switching back to ethernet. If your were not downloading a movie when doing the speed test there is the difference already, when toe downloading something it using ...

I had the same problem. In advanced preferences, I removed xfinity completely (twice). The problem persisted. My answer is conjecture, but this would seem to be a job for Apple tech. support...as they can show you how to install and use adware medic. I believe this is xfinity marketing in action.

Open settings app and disable cellular data. You can set up a second passcode for cellular data restrictions. See this site or apple support or ask a new question if you need assistance with that optional step. I would use the moment to teach the kids about responsibility. Let me choose if they should know the passcode and be responsible for the costs.

If you'd like to add wired network (Ethernet) ports to your MacBook Air you have the following options: A single or dual Thunderbolt network adapter. Apple makes one, the MD463ZM, but only with a single network port. There are third party adapters that provided more than one port - for example the Sonnet Twin 10G. There are also Thunderbolt docks that ...

I have the same problem with my MacBook Pro Retina 13" 2014 on Yosemite 10.10.3 and 10.10.4 with Apple AirPort. My problem is not depended on bluetooth state at all. Wife's MacBook Air have no problems at all, looks like it does not support 802.11ac at all - only 802.11n. So I think the problem is in 802.11ac. Just found how to fix it – this is not good ...
