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 ...

The first part is for testing. You need to use the terminal and manually connect to it.

The issues aren't with upgrading to Yosemite, they're with a component of Yosemite - every Yosemite machine runs the risk of having them. The issue's been resolved in the latest version of the OS X 10.10.4 beta, which you can download by joining the Apple beta program and following the instructions to put the beta on your computer. Here's an article ...

Delete your network settings in System Preferences and starting over usually solves this problem. To check, create a new "Location" in System Preferences > Network, and enter your password to connect to your Wi-Fi network. You can then try deleting the stored Wi-Fi information just for that network by setting "Location:" to "Automatic," clicking Wi-Fi in ...

OS X's firewall is very comprehensive, but it's GUI is limited, it can do what you want, but it's somewhat complex. I would try the following this guide http://www.techrepublic.com/article/configure-apples-built-in-network-firewall-with-icefloor/ For more advanced support you'd probably have more luck asking over on Server Fault (StackExchange) rather than ...

On my MacBooks over Wifi, the HDD attached to the Airport does not mount in the same way as directly connected or even NAS drives. Rather than the drive, I get the Airport Extreme in the 'Shared' section of Finder. Selecting the Airport Extreme shows the drive as a folder, and opening that folder effectively 'mounts' it. Even then, the drive does not show as ...

I just discovered today that the original, 802.11g AirPort Express (Model "M9470LL/A" isn't supported by versions of AirPort Utility after 6.0 and that the last few versions of OS X aren't compatible with the older AirPort Utility (though I found this helpful workaround). I don't know if any other Apple routers have these issues — I have some other old ones ...

Mover Put something — a contact, a photo, a video, a file — on the Mover table, connect two iOS or Mac OS X thingies to the same Wi-Fi network and slide away. It's that simple, really.

I know this thread is old, but I'd like to leave here what solved the problem for me. You need to check if you have the same security in both access points. For example, I had one access point secured with WPA/WPA2 and another with WPA2 only. After changing both to the same, everything was fine. To check your access points' security, you can do this: ...

The scutil --dns command gives you all the network routing information you'll need to map hardware interface labels to network routes. A little awk and grep can pretty it up if you need to script the information or pare it down. Start with gripping for "if_index" if you're curious.

I'm not sure if this will work with you, but my brother has the same issue. He uses a MacBook Pro 2010, while I have a MacBook Pro 2011. I can connect to my Wifi, yet he can't. Invalid password always comes up. After trying some ways, I found that I need to turn ON QoS setting on my Wi-Fi. And set it to WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) (if not available, I think just ...

Creating a single SSID across your two WiFi Routers by no means guarantees that devices will automatically switch to the stronger router. I went to all the trouble of configuring this only to find that a lot of devices hang on for dear life to the router to which they first connected. With a single SSID you can't manually switch to the stronger signal ...

I think my problems are solved. I opened my cover on the MBP and saw 2 screws that were loose. They were supposed to hold the WIFI antenna. I tightened them up and now it seems to work... Strange that they opened themselves?

I finally found the problem. Quite inexplicably, it was caused by the latest update to Boom 2 (v1.2). This introduced an option to use the Boom Remote iPhone app. Even if you don't have the app, it's enabled by default in the interface. Disabling it solves all issues: There are plenty of other people are reporting the same thing on their forum, and ...

If you are simply sharing files, use AirDrop. Swipe up, and tap the AirDrop button. For a Peer-to-Peer network, you can use your Mac as a router. Caveat: Your Mac must have a working Ethernet cable plugged in, but the iPads will not have an internet connection. Open System Preferences > Sharing > click the lock icon to authenticate. Select "Internet ...

Depending on what your goal is: You might not even need a router. Open a Personal Hotspot on one iPad (assuming it has 3G) and connect to it with the other one. You get the IP addresses of both in the WIFI settings of the second iPad.


1

You can do this of course. Any wifi router that the two iPads both support should connect them. Just don't bother to connect to the Internet. I'm curious as to why you need this? Most iOS apps don't do peer to peer, though some obviously do. Bittorrent Sync for one would possibly be useful here.

Changing network parameters like channel assignments might cause more harm than good, especially on the long turm. You may end up in having to analyse strange issues...

Since your problem is recent it might not be Yosemite related but Apple has acknowledged the serious problems with the DNS using the discoveryd. From the log it shows having problems with your DNS setting. You use the Google public which should be fine but: Try changing it to 8.8.4.4 (and delete all other entries) Or even better: Get this smart app and ...

The latest OS X 10.10.4 public beta, build 14E26a, totally gets rid of discoveryd. Go to this Apple link and sign up for the public beta program, where you'll be given a link to download a piece of software that'll get the App Store to pick up beta updates. Take a backup of everything, install Beta Access Utility, and then install and enjoy a discoveryd-free ...

I'm assuming you have another device handing out the DHCP leases. If so, try modifying the DHCP settings on the Ethernet Interface directly, and then turn on Internet Sharing.

I think Wi-Fi disappears because of 3G. I noticed that when I open 3G, Wi-Fi stops working.

Issues with Wi-Fi are notoriously difficult to diagnose. It's possible that there's increased traffic in the area for some untold reason, causing contention, and forcing the connection to fall to a lower MCS index (lower indexes deal better with interference, but result in lower performance, which is what you're seeing). Often the issues go away on their ...

Maybe someone else is using your internet? If your network is password protected, probably not. It could also be a virus, in which you should download an antivirus such as ClamXav(available in the app store).
