In the morning of christmas, i was browsing the internet on a Mac OSX El Capitan version 10.11 laptop. My internet connection stopped working on my laptop. That is, Ethernet and Wi-Fi simultaneously. Initially, i thought i had ISP problems. So i restarted both the laptop and the router. Still nothing in Wi-Fi and Ethernet. Yet, i discovered other people had logged in were using Wi-Fi from the same router. Also, the internet works alright in recovery mode.
Before i continue i'm using a MacBook Pro mid-2012 version and now i'm using macOS Sierra Version 10.12. I updated hoping that that will fix the problem. It didn't. In addition, i tried using a mobile network tethering to share a connection and that didn't work as well.
Here are some methods i've used to try and fix the problem. I followed exactly what was done here after reading this sentence on this post Now I've tried the following, in different order and a number of times, to no avail:
ifconconfig en1 on the terminal. This is what i got today.
en1: flags=8823<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX> mtu 1500 ether 2c:be:08:e6:87:3c nd6 options=201<PERFORMNUD,DAD> media: autoselect (<unknown type>) status: inactive
At the moment, i want to try these methods to fix the problem.
- Factory reset and reinstall OS. Since the network settings will be lost
I'm thinking of doing the second one.
I hope what i've pointed out will suffice to help me solve the problem. I would really appreciate your help to solve this problem.
