I tried several of the suggestions posted online and none of them worked for any more than a few minutes. I’ve owned this MacBook Pro for nearly 4 years and never experienced this problem until a few days ago. So I asked myself what had I changed in the last few days. I realized that I had recently purchased a USB hub, so I did some searching and found out ...

I’ll answer the lowest latency which is at odds with your minimal and cheapest requirements. (From the Good, Cheap, Fast - pick any two triad) Use LunaDisplay to transmit wirelessly to an iPad Pro that mirrors using a hardware cable to the display of your choice. The USB-C connector to a display that charges the iPad is the lowest latency in my testing. ...

So the solution that I stumbled on was to lock the file using chflags uchg /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist so whatever was modifying it back was denied. Oddly, it was a root owned file so whatever was modding it was root. I ran sudo fs_usage | grep /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist and saw no write or ...

According to gdayhowyagoin on reddit , wireguard-go version 0.0.20210212 is the culprit. If you're using brew, you can see how they downgraded it, but if youre using macports, you can follow this: git clone --single-branch https://github.com/macports/macports-ports.git cd macports-ports git checkout e01555c11df59855b73fd540accc778a41145bf8 cd net/wireguard-...

When I originally asked this question, latest YazFi version was 3. As of writing this the latest version is 4 and I haven't had this problem with YazFi 4. So if you have this issue on YazFi 3, update to version 4. I hope this helps.

The inability to ping the name does not in any way indicate a problem with your setup or anything else. Using dig and nslookup allows you to look up the IP-addresses linked with the name registry-1.docker.io. This works fine for you and you get a list of IP-addresses. Now when you ping the name - only one of the IP-addresses will be chosen to be pinged. If ...

User Richard Wick posted an answer which explains that the command has to call the setuid function in order to elevate the privileges of the command. So changing command ownership to root and adding the s bit to the command's file mode is not enough. The command itself must also be written to ask the operating system for root privileges.

This may be occurring due to accidental usage of Avahi/Bonjour. If you mount the Time Machine volume to your Mac and click 'Get Info' on a file stored on it, you may see something like smb://lunar._smb._tcp.local/Chrono/. This indicates that the server was automatically discovered because it offered an SMB service. If you were connecting via the hostname it ...

If you need it urgently, since you can boot into Recovery, can you create a new volume and do a fresh install of macOS onto that? Then you can migrate your files over to that new volume and delete the old one.

TLDR: this command resolved my ping spike issues: sudo ifconfig awdl0 down How did I come up with the command above I've used multiple recommendations from other answers in this thread. I've disabled the Location Services ...

It doesn't matter what user run the open command, it was mounted for everyone. The sudo is a red herring. To navigate to the share use cd /Volumes/share. You can check the mount point by running the command mount. Now the contents are visible running the ls command, subject to the permissions of the user running ls.

Confirm this problem on iPhone 11, iOS 13.7, Chinese model. I just cannot turn on wireless data access for some apps. The bug is even worse than OP stated. In the settings some apps show no granted access to wireless data, but it can connect to Internet and play videos, like 优酷. And some apps can connect to the Internet if I turn on VPN(shadowrocket).

I was able to resolve the issue by copying the name given in the NetBIOS Name field in the answer given by rubixibuc and pasting it into a run dialog, typing \\ and then the NetBIOS Name (so in rubixibuc's example the full path would be \\MACBOOKPRO-D04A) To open the Run dialog, simply type +R

Looking at your command to mount your Linux drive on Mac, sshfs user@192.168.0.2:/ localMountDir it looks like you are specifying that you want to mount the root of the Linux filesystem (that’s the :/ part). In general, most operating systems assign ownership of root-level directories to a privileged user (i.e., not you). In the case of Linux, root is the ...

Regarding @jwalker's answer above, the GitHub project has 0 commits since 2018, and Kernsafe's product has not seen an update since 11/2019. So both can effectively be considered abandonware at this point. Neither are working on Big Sur. Is there any way in 2021 and with macOS 11 to use network based block storage? I have some specific apps that require a &...

I make a VM when I need this and only install the conditioner on the VM. It’s usually no hassle for me to have the entire computer slow or lossy when I’m testing and then I return it to full performance when I’m done. I suppose it depends on why you are wanting to have differential speeds out of the same network interface.

This bug exists all the way from iOS 10 to 14.4, and Apple did nothing for it. Some apps don't have Apple Watch support still have this bug. I've tried hundreds of ways to solve this. The ONLY way you can get the app working is to ERASE YOUR IPHONE and reinstall your app one by one. And what is even more worse is that this bug will come back AGAIN after some ...

My iMac late 2012 wasn't connecting to the new 5Ghz 802.11/ac router, so I followed along Allan's answer and bought a new Airport Card. The problem remained. The real issue was that when i setup my router as Access Point it doesn't show options for wifi mode(802.11a/b/g/n/ac). My iMac can only do 802.11a/b/g/n, and I can't connect to the 5Ghz because the ...
