No, it is not so that Apple devices somehow cannot read the country code for North America. Some WiFi devices comes with a settable country code - i.e. often you can access a configuration page from the router and set the country code to match where you are. For some vendors the country code can be changed with firmware updates. Also it is possible that you ...

Note that RN Diagnostics indicates you have conflicting country codes: some are US, some are RU (Russia). If your router transmits a different country code than what your macbook thinks it should be, then this can apparently cause problems with re-connecting. Check your router setup to see if the country code (or region) can be changed. Hopefully you have ...

The proper way on modern macOS to flush the dns cache is: sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder You’ll want ensure your DNS is working well by bypassing your routers provided DNS and manually configuring Google or Cloudflare or other DNS provider on the MBP. 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 is Google 1.1.1.1, 1.0.0.1 is Cloudflare There are several other DNS providers to choose ...

Before I got a new iPhone, I experienced this with my Android sometimes. It may or may not work for you, but try a physical connection. I have found that this helped me.

This is not possible on iOS as it ships from the factory. When you create the hotspot, you turn your iPhone into a router with NAT clients on one side (usually WiFi) and your public IP on the other (Cellular). As such, whatever config you had before (WiFi Internet with VPN) gets disabled. If you want to use VPN while on your hotspot, the best approach is to ...

Starting with macOS Catalina, macOS now automatically sends the signature of every executable you open to Apple. Obviously, if you don't have an internet connection, it won't check with Apple's servers. When you do have an internet connection, it must send the signature to Apple's servers, then wait for the response. This is made worse by slower internet.

Some apps ping their own servers, so it takes some time. Sometimes gatekeeper decides to check something by connecting to Apple servers. Using firewall helped speedup the launch time of some apps. But some apps just delay the launch sometimes anyway. Does macOS phone home to Apple's servers before running an app for the first time? How to stop Catalina ...

I had a similar issue and got a positive response when using IPv6 (ping6) but not IPv4 (ping). I also had the symptoms described in the question Why will my Mac only load Google and Facebook?. This problem started to appear after disconnecting from the VPN. So, after terminating the VPN service, networking began to work fine again. sudo killall -9 vpnagentd ...

I had the exactly same issue with my brand new Asus Router RT-AX58U supporting WiFi 6 mode and was not able to connect to my network on the 2.4 Ghz band on my MacBook Air running High Sierra 10.13.1. All my windows and android devices had no issues with connectivity. I had tried changing WPA2 to WPA2/WPA mode and from AES to TKIP encryption, forgot network ...

This happened recently to me (after an OS upgrade to 10.15.6). I also suspect that this is because somehow the OS starts to treat the network differently as before. Anyhow, what worked is just removing the network from the list of known networks and reconnecting.

I just ran this on my older iMac running High Sierra. It ran to completion in about 10 minutes. It wrote the output to the tmp directory but probably not the tmp directory you checked. On my machine, it wrote the output to /private/var/tmp. The folder 'private' won't show up using Finder unless you 'show hidden items'. This requires hitting the command-shift-...

Technically, yes.If you turn off the data plan, then regardless if they try to be a hotspot, it won’t matter because there won’t be a data plan to use. However, (I know this because I was researching data plans last week) you can get a data plan that doesn’t have hot spot or tethering capability. So, your user can still have mobile data, but they won’t be ...

I had the same problem and after a couple of unsuccessful hours with Apple support I was ready to send my new MacBook back for a warranty repair. The 'fix' in my case was easy: I STOPPED USING FOLX! I've not had this problem for 2 weeks now. I now just need an alternative to Folx, compatible with Catalina (10.15.5)

Same issue here - can't comment yet, but a little more insight nonetheless: For me the issue was resolved with regards to the top comment, simply disabled locationd. (mbp 2010, osx 10.13, fresh install) However, for me it occurred ONLY on en0 = ethernet, but somehow not on WiFi. This might sound benign, but having said that, for someone looking for this ...
