OS X Yosemite may be Apple’s most sophisticated desktop computer OS to this day, but there’s one problem that has actually left many users irritated for a while, and it pertains to a bug in Wi-Fi connection. The OS X 10.10.1 upgrade was expected to fix this inconsistency forever – – at least that’s exactly what the changelog proposed – – yet the concern seems to be common. Designer Mario Ciabarra has supposedly located a functioning solution to maintain Wi-Fi connectivity on Yosemite, so allow’s take an appearance exactly how it works.

According to Ciabarra, the problem seem to be coming from the way the OS is handling Wi-Fi with AirDrop, making use of a link called AWDL. Ciabarra’s solution is to disable this service, which will certainly then render AirDrop ineffective, yet at the same time fix Wi-Fi efficiency associated problems for great.


To do this, users will certainly need to run the Incurable application on their Mac and enter the following command line:

sudo ifconfig awdl0 down

Now hit Enter, and while Ciabarra doesn’t state anything regarding reactivating your Mac, we propose that you go in advance and do it still.

Keep one thing in mind though; use this repair until or unless you’re absolutely determined to mend your Wi-Fi associated issues on Yosemite and don’t actually love AirDrop. We ‘d go as much as proposing to await a main fix for this entire problem.

Yosemite has actually had varying sorts of Wi-Fi issues from its initial launch to the 10.10.1 update, where users complained around falling Wi-Fi connections, sluggish Web speeds, and an annoying combo of both. Unusually sufficient, we viewed a comparable design with the release as well as succeeding launches of updates to iOS 8, containing users not merely stating in containing Wi-Fi issues, however Bluetooth as well. Bluetooth issues are well existing with Yosemite also, nonetheless all these array of concerns across both systems are not that widely common and simply a handful of users are caught in this mess.

As for Yosemite, given that the release of the 10.10.1 update for the OS, Apple has paid follow to problems being available in from users concerning common Wi-Fi issues, as a result releasing the OS X 10.10.2 beta to testers on the 24th of November. Whether that has settled the bugs entirely or otherwise stays to be seen.
