The WiFi signal strength alone is not enough to determine the Quality. For example as you can see in the Ping, the first location is extremely fast. The second location is very slow.? So something is interfering with the WiFi signal. Been in the Office it could be number of things, including Printers. Look at the following numbers by holding Option key ...

Download a wifi analyser onto your phone (plenty of good free ones) and check the signal strength your getting on it when scanning for WAP's. This should help you rule out if its the signal strength, leaving either your netgear or iPhone as the culprit. See this article as well http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/ios-8-problems/2/

There is Airport Utility by Apple which allows you to review and change the configuration of any Apple WiFi device in the current network.

I have a similar problem with a bit of a work around.. I'm not sure if it works for others and I'm also trying to understand it myself because it is a bit annoying. My laptop will always see my wifi network but sometimes my wife's MacAir or my moms Samsung tablet will suddenly not be able to see the network. By freak luck I discovered that turning on and ...

I know that it's old question but maybe someone is looking for better solution. I've just found it: ⌥ + click on wifi icon

This happens when your Airport Time Capsule have the same name for 2.4GHz y 5GHz. To solve it, just go to Wireless Options... and change the 5GHz network name. On your iDevice replace old wifi network with new one and should work. Source: How to force 802.11ac?

im not sure this will help, my gut says it might, but under wireless settings in your iOS device, forget network then re connect, (note you need to reenter password and SSID)

There's a company called SkyHook that sells a wifi-based geolocation product to many companies, but not sure if Apple is one of them. It was a couple of years ago though. You can ask them to update their database here: http://www.skyhookwireless.com/submit-access-point. If Apple is doing their own geolocation services now, you're likely out of luck. ETA: ...

Check for local keep alive settings on your mac. These were mine...: sysctl -a | grep tcp.keep net.inet.tcp.keepidle: 3600 net.inet.tcp.keepintvl: 150 net.inet.tcp.keepinit: 75000 net.inet.tcp.keepcnt: 8 I needed to change the keepintvl setting to some higher value: sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.keepintvl=7500 Then the ssh "write failed: Broken pipe" ...

At least the wifi issue should have been fixed (but it wasn't) with the latest update:

Hold down the option key when you click on the WiFi menu. Then next to the currently active network there will be a "Disconnect from" option. I'm on Yosemite, and so I'm not sure whether this was present on earlier versions of OS X.

Apple released the 10.10.1 update today, which is supposed to fix many wifi issues.

You can use the hot spot over Bluetooth, no wifi needed.

Is your iPhone 4s running (at least) iOS 7.1? If so, then I believe this support page from Apple should do the trick: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/ts1559 If neither of Apple's instructions work, then one idea is to you back up your iPhone using iTunes and restore the device. I recommend making a clean restore. If the Wi-Fi works, then you can either ...

AFP is more so meant for a LAN configuration and not a WAN network. Instead you could try CIFS or another protocol and see if you see the same speed or an increase. I would also try to use AirDrop and see how that works.

I see some issues with your plan... Dropbox is a 'share once, download many' solution. Providing your own 'file-server' is a 'share every single time' plan. If your new connection is going to be 200Mb/s both ways & you also have a no-limit plan, then that may be all fair & good, but most domestic connections are 10:1 - that is, for every 10Mb ...

You can surely do this but please not that doing so will void your Apple warranty with the Airport Extreme. What you need to do is: Pull the HDD out of the Time Capsule (take it apart) Install the HDD in an enclosure or caddy Connect the enclosure to your Mac Use Disk Utility to create a 100GB partition Reinstall the HDD in your Airport Extreme and you ...

When your wifi connectivity is active , run the Wireless Diagnostics and monitor the WIFI. Unzip the report and look at the file wifi-5gUAEy.log. 5gUAEy name is specific to that particular diagnostics report. In the wifi-xxxxxx.log , check for the text "Will not continue auto join". If the below issue exists in your report follow the steps to fix the ...

Radio waves (your WiFi signal) are blocked/reflected by metal surfaces. If you surround the antenna with metal surfaces on 3 sites you will get very limited reception. Using that factor one can build a directional antenna that works in one direction and magnifies the signal. If you have a TV dish that is how it works, it is a directional antenna that ...

I also installed Yosemite from a user profile. I switched to the admin profile and if fixed the issue.

Your build in WiFi card can only work one way. So if it is receiving the WiFi than it can not broadcast (share) it at the same time. But if your Internet connection comes in via USB WiFi or cable then you can use the build in WiFi to share (it is sending).

Unfortunately I think only Apple can fix this, hopefully with an update to Yosemite (which is reportedly already being tested, but a release date is unknown). Until then, all I can offer is a workaround. Find Your WiFi "port" First you need to find your Wi-Fi port. On a MacBook Air this is probably en0. On a Mac with built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi, the ...

Try following these instructions. Condensed version is below. Turn off Wi-Fi.

As often happens the solution was just to reboot all the things. In this case it eventually turned out that the DSL modem (which is also the router) was the culprit.

I stumbled on this question because I'm having problems with poor wifi speeds after installing Yosemite on a July 2014 rMBP. I don't get drops, but I get 5 Mbps speeds literally 5 feet from the router when I used to get in the 70s. My iphone 5S, sitting next to the rMBP, is able to get 70Mbps. Even more confounding is that if I change the router to support ...

I think you need to scrap the existing Keychain. Try this: Go to Spotlight and type in "Keychain Access" Search for your wireless network in the Keychain Access window Delete any keys that appear here Next, while you're at it, I'd recommend trashing your SysConfig folder. To do that: Go to Finder In the menu bar, click on Go > Go To Folder Type in the ...

It sounds like the Time Capsule isn't functioning properly. It may be worth scheduling a free appt at the Apple Genius Bar. They can tell you if there is a recall or if by some chance the repair/replacement is covered under warranty. Perhaps it needs a firmware upgrade? You can check in the Airport Utility on a Mac or iOS device. More info here on Apple's ...

This isn't a solution, and it isn't a definitive answer, but WiFi/Bluetooth issues have been reported by many users (including yours truly) of OS X Yosemite. Apple is reportedly working on a fix, which may or may not help all of these users.

I could be completely wrong with this, but I did have a time when an old 2010 Macbook would drop wifi and struggle to pick it up again. My resolution was down to my router being both 2.4GHz and 5GHz with a "Smart Band" tech which would swap between bands for devices. Taking off this Smart Band feature and connecting to one specific band did resolve my ...

After research on Internet, the problem has always been. And the only one solution i've found is to change your Airport card to an European model. For this you can ask to an Apple Store, or if you find the European AirPort Card for your Macbook Pro model you can change it by yourself. You can find good guides for change the Aiport card on iFixit. ...

Unless your desktop is the central proxy server you will have to go through the router. Just because you can see other machines with arp doesn't mean you can do anything with them. Kicking them off the network via the router will usually be total - does the office staff depend on the network do do their jobs? A better way is running your own DNS server. ...

I've had the same issue and found a quick and dirty solution. Boot into Windows with the Thunderbolt Display connected and visit the device manager and delete the drivers with the warning sign. In my case, windows immediately installed the drivers automatically and it worked right away.

Just buy a cheap router, connect it to one of the ethernet cables in your room, and enable wi-fi.

This is precisely what happens when the DNS server IP address configured in the wireless router is bad. (We had our ISP simply stop using some addresses for DNS!) iOS devices typically configure their wifi access by default to defer DNS to the router. If the router has bad addresses, the iOS device (or Apple TV) can't connect via wifi to the internet - it ...

Your product is still under Apple warranty. Best course of action is to bring it to Apple Store for service. It sounds like hardware problem anyway. Meanwhile you could try some troubleshooting, like start in safe mode and see if it works. Next try logging in as another user to see if it is your user profile related. Also you could delete your airport ...

Your Airport Extreme has a link-local address. Wikipedia: For Internet Protocol (IP) networks, they are assigned most often using stateless address autoconfiguration. In IPv4 they are normally only used to assign IP addresses to network interfaces when no external, stateful mechanism of address configuration exists, such as the Dynamic Host ...
