Not quite the solution you're asking for, but your router may also allow to adjust its QoS (Quality of Service) settings, which could allow you to give priority to streaming music or video over other types of internet traffic. How you do this (and whether it's even worth trying to figure out how) will very much depend on your router and the type of UI it ...

...when I check on my iPhone what DNS it hands out, it shows 192.168.2.1. What you are seeing is completely normal. To verify this, I setup Internet Sharing over WiFi with my Ethernet adapter as my primary connection and got the exact same results you did (the IP addresses varied some, but it's irrelevant). I even tried it on a Windows Phone - ...

Your WiFi adapter has failed. I am basing this answer off your statement in the question that it was working 2 days prior, but is no longer working now. WiFi adapters don't disappear from a systems unless they have either failed or something very significant has been done to the system. But, to be certain, we have to do some diagnostics first.... Get ...

I the same problem and got solved after unplugging and reseting everything connected to the router, it was an ip conflict between my iphone and a previously DHCP set domotic controller. It may sound silly, but forgot to check the ip addresses of every device.

Use Little Snitch 3 for that. You can use Automatic Profile Switching for your filter rules depending on the network you are in. For your specific WiFi just block everything except your browser for that. https://www.obdev.at/products/littlesnitch/index.html

I had the same problem. One possible solution is to delete the WiFi's settings from keychain. Search for 'Keychain Access'. Then select the 'System' option from left. Then delete your Wifi settings. It will then prompt you to enter the password again!

I resolved this issue by removing my custom DNS entries. I prefer to use Google Public DNS and this was disrupting the login screen. I discovered the issue by running the Network Diagnostics app after experiencing this problem on a recently upgraded MBP Retina (Yosemite -> El Capitan). To run the app, do the following: Open System Preferences Choose ...

Providing you do not have usual wifi-routers & purely using USB tethering, having a Google account signed in with your iOS device would help a lot, you may use Google Photos app to sync, back-up & retrieve them from your Windows desktop/laptop Chrome browser's Google Photos as long as you are logged in the same Google account as you've logged in at ...

I was having this same issue. I just restarted my MBP and now AirPlay is working fine.

1. Wireless interference The most common cause of what you describe here is a common wireless interference problem. This probability is pretty high if your network loss of performance was closely related with the move of wirelessly connected computer or of pieces of furniture made of metal or glass (these cause many radiofrequency reflections). If you want ...

I am also having Wi-Fi issues (for months) with MBP 2014 and I found a temporary solution to the problem. I have tracked down the problem to be or kernel or driver implementation bug with 802.11n (the important info here is the "n"). I have an Airport Express and inside the configuration for Wireless (Radio Mode) you can choose for 802.11n with 802.11b/g ...

No, there is no limit to the number of WI-Fi networks your computer can remember unless your computer runs out of memory because it has to remember too many networks. ;)

We have a hack option takes two iPhones or a iPad with Cellular what you do is the phone you want to upload photos off you tether to the iPad or iPhone it will think its on a wifi network and start uploading photos. so take a old iPhone put your sim in it and tether it to the phone ...

A request timeout on ICMP (ping) going from your Mac to your your network device simply means that the device, not your Mac failed to respond to the ping request in a given amount of time. There is a good explanation of that here. This can happen for any number of reasons; network congestion, device load, wifi signal interference, power loss, etc. Most ...

Over time, Wifi hardware has progressed through several versions. In addition to higher speeds, the newer versions tend to offer better connection quality when there are many wifi signals and other interference in the vicinity. It could be that your computer has older wifi hardware than your phone, and hence is not able to handle the interference as well, ...

There is autossh doing exactly what you need: autossh -M 12345 -N -R 2000:localhost:22 root@my_server_ip But you should certainly reconsider running the tunnel using root account, when it is password-less (unless you have the key limited using authorized_commands).

You can probably do this on your Mac book with an Ad-Hoc network, but I don't know how the performance will be with 20 users so purchasing a separate wifi access point (AP) is probably a good idea (Apple's Airport Express is very portable). In either case, you will want to setup a web (Apache) and DNS (Bind) server on your laptop. That is pretty easy to do ...

See if you set a wrong DNS address in system preferences -> network

If you don't use iCloud keychain like Hawken Mentioned, here's the Apple KB Article on iOS WiFi priority You can also control it with an iOS config profile via the Apple Configurator - see some of the answers on this previous question

Try setting a new network location. Network Preferences/edit top drop down/new location/apply If that doesn't work you may need to reinstall OS to resolve software issue.

If you have iCloud Keychain enabled, the prioritized list of networks from your Mac will sync to your phone, including the order. If you don't want to enable it, though, I do not know of any way to arrange networks on the phone by priority, except by forgetting them all and adding them in order of desire (the ones added earlier in the process will be ...

You can choose "forget this network" on the ones you aren't interested in, leaving just the office wifi.

I've had the same question, but from the other point of view. I wasn't aware of ifconfig (kinda new to this stuff). I think I got it working by doing it the other way round. I first had OS X share my internet over wifi (via sharing preferences) Then with ifconfig, you'll see that OS X creates a bridge100 (or something) I set the IP manually like you did on ...

@Nikita was half right before you do that though giro Settings.app>sharing>internet sharing then select what you want to be shared and where it will be shared then create wifi network meow 😺

That mechanism is in place to protect customers unaware of the data limits and to conserve the network's bandwidth, this means that everyone gets an equal share of the network. Although what I normally do is USB tether to my Mac then Wi-Fi share the USB connection then connect to that with my iPhone

It turned out to be problems with "overheating", so I installed Macs Fan Control and set it a bit aggresive, ie linear, and it "solved" it. I haven't heard back from the support yet though, but there seems to be an issue with the coolant paste to the north bridge. I'll see when I actually have time to turn it in. It goes from ca 40C to 95C in mere seconds ...

A solution does in fact exist. Click the Wi-Fi symbol in the menu bar and choose Create Network.
