Only since yesterday, I am unable to find an access point on my macbook pro (MBP) running Mavericks 10.9.5. Interestingly, all my other devices (Nexus 5, Ipad, Macbook Air) can see it and connect to it. All devices are in line of sight to the router. The router is broadcasting the SSID. Also the MBP connects to my other access points just fine.
I have tried the following:
- Restart the router. Twice.
- Turn wifi on and off on the MBP
- Connect to the wifi network using 'Join Other Network'. This results in 'No network found.'
- Restarted the MBP
- PRAM reset on the MBP
- SMC reset on the MBP
- Change the wifi channel on the router
- Renamed the SSID
I am really stumped and need help to figure this out. Thanks.
EDIT: The wifi access point became visible again. No changes were made to either mac or router. Neither were even rebooted. I took my mac to work and connected it to the office network. When I returned home, the rogue wifi access point was connectable.
I am closing the question by selecting the first answer since I learnt something new from it.
