You are connecting to a WPA2 network in WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) mode. In this mode, you'll usually be able to authenticate by entering a password as a string of ASCII characters (up to 63 characters). macOS will generate a 256-bit authentication key from the password using a series of manipulations (known as salting and hashing) that ensures that ...

The Service Order doesn't work. If you test it, you will find that Mac OS prioritizes Wifi over Ethernet, even if Ethernet is set higher in the Service Order. One way to test it is to measure your bandwidth (e.g., https://www.fast.com) in the following scenarios: Connected to Wifi, with Ethernet unplugged Connected to Ethernet, with Wifi turned off ...

I am experiencing something similar, and it is actually the Apple Magic Mouse 2 that creates all the interferences with other Bluetooth devices. I guess something got very wrong in my mouse. If it is on, no Bluetooth device works properly

Just to make sure... Is visibility for 5G Wi-Fi network turned on? I.e., network is visible in the list of available networks, when you want to connect from any other device? Also, try this: Turn WPA2 only in the router settings.. Remove saved 5G Wi-Fi network on MBP and register again. Just in case, make sure your MacBook supports 5G connectivity by: ...

The problem is the macOS continues to check for updates (including email, software, news, etc.) while your MacBook Pro is asleep (this feature is called "Power Nap"). This means it's very quick to get up and running when you open your MacBook, but it also means your battery goes down while it's asleep. The problem some people have is that even with "Power ...

I see two possible problems here: First possibility is that your MAC address after reboot is somehow invalid (i.e. for example set to all zeros). That could make your DHCP server (probably in your home router) reject your request for an IP address). Check if that is the case by running the following command in the Terminal: ifconfig en0 Note the line ...

When I click the info button for the secure TWC passpoint network, it does not show the usual auto-join, auto-login, or “Forget this Network” buttons. My phone is still trying to connect everything ...

I thought of two ways: Check if any intranet webpage is reachable on the Mac. It wouldn't be, that confirms cellular data usage. Check "What is my ip" on the iPhone once while using cellular, once using Wi-Fi. Then match those with the one on the Mac. It matches with cellular's. One can also use utilities listed in Allan's answer.

Regardless of how you connect to your iPhone acting a a personal hotspot, whether it be via WiFi or tethered via cable, you are sharing the cellular data connection. So, using your example, where your iPhone is initially connected to the corporate WiFi and then you enable the Personal Hotspot feature, you will disconnect from the corporate WiFi and a ...
