Split the traffic with different subnets on your router. If your lan is giving addressing in the 10.10.10.0/24 range and your wifi is giving them in the 192.168.0.0/24 range everything you connect to on the 10.10.10.0/24 network with only use ethernet.

There are tools like Marco Polo that can change such settings based on location, but you will need to actually change your location, or have some other automated way to trigger this change. While there are some sophisticated servers and network hardware that can access multiple TCP/IP connections, and route different classes of network traffic to different ...

From the graph displayed either your router or your MacBook (?) is having problems maintaining a connection. I assume this happens even when the computer is in the same room as the router? This is important as wifi signals are often attenuated by some kinds of building materials (wiring, metal studs, brick/stone walls, longer distances) so being near the ...

The profile information states that the profile contains a 'device enrollment challenge'. A device enrollment challenge requires connection to a device enrollment server—not Apple's servers, but another server that the payload is informed of. When you press Install and enter your passcode if appropriate, all the payloads that are contained within a mobile ...

It's an issue of what device you'll be using, how many of them will be connected simultaneously, if you need to stream music, etc. But based on what you said, here are a few suggestions: In general, if you have a new Mac (mid-2013 or later, for most models), it probably takes advantage of 802.11ac, a spec which only the Extreme supports. However, if you ...

Reviewing more articles, I realized that the AP was not set to Enterprise. Upon turning that on, and setting it up on the AP, the server was receiving the auth requests (and showing that they were authenticating), but not returning them to the AP.

ControlPlane You want to have an automated action after you connect to a certain WiFi point. An easy way to do this, is using ControlPlane (formally known as MarcoPolo). This software makes your computer context aware and can execute scripts and programs when your location changes. Some examples that ControlPlane is aware of: Current Audio Output device ...

If you want the iPad to use cellular data only on specific occasions, not automatically, you can turn off cellular data in Settings -> Cellular -> Cellular data and switch it on only when needed. This way if the WiFi is down, the iPad will be cut off from the internet and you'll have to manually allow it to use the cellular plan. (I'm not 100% certain ...

It works the other around but the result is the same. By default it uses the cellular network unless there is a Wifi network. If there is a Wifi network I will use it to send and receive data.

You can extend a wireless network on an Airport Extreme, however it MAY require the old version of Airport Utility to accomplish these steps. What you would do is under "Airport", "Wireless" change "Wireless Mode" from "Create a Wireless Network" to "Extend a Wireless Network". Then under "Internet Connection" set "Connection Sharing" from "Distribute a ...

iMessage is designed to prefer sending a message over Apple's servers vs sending via the carrier's SMS system. When you send a message, iMessage checks to see if the recipient is registered with Apple's Messages server. If the target you are messaging is not registered with Apple's Messages server (ie they use an Android phone), your iPhone will send the ...

As your device is registered with iMessage, their devices will attempt to send iMessage first. They need to change their setting to send as SMS if iMessage fails (Settings → iMessage).

Not sure if they'll fix this sort of problem, but you could try reporting it through the "Report a Problem..." feature under the Apple Maps application menu. Not sure if it fits any of the listed problems but you could try using the "My problem is not listed" option.

There's not really a way of doing this. Apple does use croud-sourced data obtained from iPhones though: get an iPhone and let it get its location. Using GPS the iPhone will obtain an actual location, and as it can scan for Wi-Fi the data can be combined.

Why can't you use the built-in Airport in the Mac? Set up Network Preferences or just click on the WiFi icon in the Menu Bar.

I just fixed the same problem. New AE with ac channel. The ac takes over the 5GHz channel and appears to be the problem. Open the Airport Utility, go to the wireless tab and pick Advanced. Check the box to rename the 5GHz and reset the AE. That forces the printer onto the 2.4GHz channel

If you have single WiFi card then you can not use it for receiving and sending WiFi. If your internet comes from cable (Ethernet) or from a USB -WiFi, then those can be shared using your WiFi card.

All three of your VMs are stored on your NAS, correct? I am not surprised that they are all slow. You are streaming tons of data over a network and expecting it to work as if it were being used locally. Virtual machines perform a lot of disk IO. Using network storage for VHD files and other resources that are used by your VMs is not really a great idea if ...

Tyilo's NetworkAutoLogin project on github is an os.x daemon that "Automagically logs into to Captive Portal Networks" with user-supplied credentials. It uses PhantomJS & CasperJS to post the necessary info to the fields on the captive portal login page. Could be the secret login "password", a username-password pair, or just activating a EULA checkbox ...

See my response to this question on the Apple discussions. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5770041?tstart=0 Basically, use a static configuration for your WiFi Network, but leave the Router IP address blank.

I had the exact same issue with a 2 year old iPhone. I read up on it all day and tried everything. Last ditch - I tried a weird solution I found online and it worked. Overheat the iPhone gently with a hot hair dryer until it gives the Temperature alert and goes into recovery mode. Now put it in a Ziplock bag and place it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. If ...

4 bars = 100% signal 3 bars = 75% signal 2 bars = 50% signal 1 bar = 25% signal Why is it that you have signals with 4 bars and you can not connect could be other problem than signal strength.

I have found a few apps in the App Store that claim to be both an FTP client and server. That means you can run a server on an iPhone, connect to it from a Mac, transfer files to my phone, and then to a remote server (or vice versa). This would greatly simplify the process. The apps are: FTP On The Go Pro Easy FTP Pro FilesConnect FTPManager iStorage 2 ...

Yes... Add the network to your phone. Then touch the "i" next to the network and change "Auto-Join" to off. Turn off wifi and then turn it back on. You will notice that you are now on the cell network. However, if you touch the wifi network that you just updated (in settings), you will then log into it. Then can repeat...to return to the cell network ...

You can use ControlPlane for this. It allows you to control your context, like home and other, and set actions for it: when 'enter' home context, enable file sharing, when 'leave' home context, disable file sharing.
