Theoretically the device list is as follows, running iOS 7 or later: iPhone 5 or later iPad (4th generation or later) iPad mini iPod touch (5th generation) That said, this is the compatibility list for AirDrop which uses WiFi Direct as of iOS 7. Your mileage may vary with apps that are not utilizing AirDrop for the WiFi Direct functionality.

Actually this is possible!... Use the following instructions: 1. Tap the blue arrow next to the name of the AirPort Express WiFi network to view more options. 2. Select "Static" as the type of IP address, and then enter the following IP address and Subnet Mask : IP Address : 10.0.1.4 (for example) Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0 Make sure you leave Router, DNS, ...

It worked for me (Yosemite) just changing the WiFi Name in the Internet sharing settings and then activating internet sharing again.

This most likely means that his Wifi chip/antenna/thing is "burnt out". You can most likely get it replaced at an Apple Store, or through a 3rd party Apple approved technician.

I found a slightly bizarre solution. I tried all the solutions Google comes up with, none worked but I saw an article that mentions KisMAC can see channel 13. Installed it and then suddenly my country code changed from US to X3 and now I can connect on channel 13.

WiFiAgent.app is part of OS X and is the agent responsible for all things Wi-Fi in the GUI. This includes everything from managing the menu bar item to showing dialogs for entering the wireless key of the network. The agent runs in the background on all Macs with a wireless service. Here's a converted version of the WiFiAgent.app Localizable.strings which ...

There are 2 VoIP apps that are widely used here in Southeast Asia. http://www.viber.com/en/#iphone https://itunes.apple.com/app/id414478124?mt=8&ls=1 Check them out.

You can, but you will need a VOIP application for that. Something like Skype works well over WiFi, since you can actually call phones (landlines or Cellular). The Skype app is free, however calling phones is charged (but much less than AT&T was) As you know the only limitation is you have to be in a WiFi signal range.

presumably, they both only can see 802.11b 2.4GHz & 20MHz bandwidth. Can you check those are available on the network you're trying to connect to? My old 3G [occasional iPod these days] can see my wifi if I don't trap it out with 'modern' tech.

I was troubleshooting the Router, I did the reset, created a new network, reset again then I decided to chain the trouble-router with my working Airport extreme. It obviously gave me the SAME IP RANGE issue. I opened the options of the Trouble-router and went to NETWORK > NETWORK OPTIONS > and changed the IPv4 CHCP RANGE from 10.0 to 172.16 saved options, ...

Unfortunately, this is not possible under stock iOS 8; there is nothing under General > Restrictions (or anything in the Settings App) that would help. If it is absolutely critical, you can look into jailbreaking the iPad (which would void any warranty), but doing that is going to extremes to just solve this one issue, haha. Sorry that this probably isn't ...

If you're asking if you can make calls or receive texts while connected to the hotspot, then yes, you can! However, if you're asking if you can use cellular internet, then I'm afraid that is not possible. (Mildly technical explanation ahead!) The reason is that, when connected to WiFi, the iPhone funnels all requests through that Wifi connection to the ...

It's not possible for a store-approved app to add a Notification Center widget as there are no public APIs for controlling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth power. There might be private ones you could access with an app signed for enterprise or developer use, but using control center is a better idea for this.

You can toggle directly by swiping up from the very bottom of the screen… ...from the lock screen, home screen or in most apps [in some apps it's difficult to get the swipe to be recognised if the app uses the same part of the screen for a function.]

You can use Control Plane to switch context automatically depending on nearby WiFi networks, location, … or tons of other conditions.

I exactly the same problems as you had, so I wrote an app to fix them. I have released "WiFi Priority" on the app store this week. You can simply create a configuration profile with it, which prevents the device from auto joining the specified network. However, you are still able to manually join this network by simply tapping on it in your network list. ...

The saved password may be incorrect or blank. Open Keychain, search for the wifi network name, and delete any saved passwords.

Yes, you can do that. When Ethernet is connected, go to Sharing System Preference Pane. You can share the Internet there by selecting Ethernet as a source.

I had the same issue, had to turn off and on the printer to get it to print every time even if the jobs were only a few minutes apart. I was not thrilled about changing the 5GHz name as suggested above. I resolved my issue by going into the Airport Utility on my iphone, go to Edit->Advanced->Add WPS Printer->With pin Now my Epson Workforce 845 works ...

What about something even easier? There's a great app for OS X called Concentrate that will block distractions for you for periods of time. In particular it'll block your access to apps when you want to focus so you can stop surfing Ask Different when you should be studying. Have it block Chrome, Safari and Firefox and any other apps you find distracting and ...

Go to System Preferences > Network, and click on Advanced. Go to the Wi-Fi tab (if you're not there by default), scroll through the list of networks until you find the one you want to forget, select it, and then click the minus sign at the lower left of the list of networks.

Simply don't use wi-fi to backup. Use a USB cable. Even if wi-fi backup is enabled, you can always plug your iPhone into your computer and initiate a backup via USB. Plus, it is much faster.

From the limited information provided (need more lines) it could be few reasons.

Here are two things to check. 1). Do you have any encryption on your WiFi network? If so, I would recommend changing the password/key and using one that is at least 16 characters long and contains at least three of the four types of characters (lower case letter, uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters like "!", "@", "#", "$", "%"...). One ...

You do not need a script for tuning the WiFi on and connecting you, the OS X system does that already for you. If you look in Console (look for line containing Airport) and the lines after that will show it in action. Best is if you could publish that log in here to see why is it not working for you. Here are some choices for you: If you want a Scrip to ...

Apple say that certain monitors will interfere with wifi, as stated here. That wouldn't explain why it seems to only affect apple products! But does explain why lowering the wifi channel to 1 might help (it says to avoid 11-14). It also suggests moving to 5GHz instead of 2.5GHz may alleviate the problem. Somebody else suggests that if you use a genuine ...

so it seems the problem is in the DD-WRT firmare upgrade. I downgraded to a previous DD-WRT and the issue is gone. It was a matter of lan switching not working. Downgrading back to DD-WRT firmware SVN revision 23919 fixed it.

We have the same MPB if you have the 13" model. [Thankfully I have no issues yet.] I guess you did not install anything weird on the system or messed up any setting etc. Based on this premise: First and foremost, which version of Yosemite are you using? It is known that some of the initial versions had some Wi-Fi connectivity issues/bugs. Make sure you ...
