    iPad Pro I tested my iPad Pro's max network speed over 2.5G ethernet - I got 1.2 Gbps

    After upgrading my Google Fiber to 2gig and my network to 2.5G, for sh*ts and giggles decided to test the max network speed on my 2018 iPad Pro 11" and saw a max speed of 1264 Mbps. Did it simply because I was curious - the Google installer was hitting a network max of ~1600 Mbps on his Samsung...

    macOS Random Networking (Ethernet) Failures

    About once per day (sometimes more or less) and usally overnight, the networking will fail on my Mac mini running 11.2.1. When this occurs all pings in the Terminal fail (to both local and remote IP addresses). So even trying to ping my router fails. Which is strange because in System...

    Resolved Weird Ethernet Issue on Mac Mini M1, help reproduce?

    Whenever I unplug and reconnect the Ethernet cable back into the Mac Mini M1, it will continue to connect/disconnect over and over until I reboot. It's usually resolved by a reboot. This is how I can reproduce it: Open Network, and make sure the Ethernet connection is "Connected" and green...

    Use 2nd ethernet port to improve network performance

    I'm trying to diagnose LAN performance issues. I have a 2009 Mac Pro acting as a file server and a 2013 Mac Pro as my desktop. There are gigabit switches between them with cat6 cabling. One of the switches feeds my TV and media box. I use the 2009 Mac Pro for all media downloading. My internet...

    Ethernet switch wreaking havoc on my network

    I'm going a bit crazy trying to solve this one, so maybe the MacRumors family can point me in the right direction... Something is fishy with my network. I've recently added a 5-port unmanaged ethernet switch (TP-Link TL-SG105) to my network. When the switch is connected to my Verizon FiOS G1100...

    Mesh WiFi and switch options please (dedicated Ethernet backhaul)

    Hi, I’m renovating/extending my house and will be installing Ethernet ports in most rooms. What are the best options for mesh WiFi and switches? Ideally I’d like dedicated Ethernet backhaul, I’ll likely need a switch regardless (all non-mobile devices will be connected via Ethernet). If...

    iOS PacketCalc beta. Any network admins out there?

    Hi, Just submitted an iPhone / iPad app called PacketCalc to TestFlight. If anyone's interested in trying it out, I'd very much appreciate any feedback! The app can answer questions like "How much payload, i.e. user data, could you send in 13 seconds in a 495 byte IPv6 packet encapsulated in...

    Late 2013 MBP 15" - Network slows after time

    So this is an odd one. A couple times now my '15 MBP (late 2013) will completely slow down my internet speed on my Mac, both wired and wireless. I have gigabit internet from FIOS and I was limited to about 5mbps on my Mac. On my iPhone 11 it was normal internet speeds. Initially I thought it...

    Dumb question...what type of cable do I need for ethernet?

    I'd like to connect directly to the modem/router with an ethernet but a cable for this didn't come with my Macbook Air. It looks like there are several types of adapters I could buy but I want to make sure it works with my MBA (2017 version). I have the little port with the lightning bolt image...

    Home Setting up NAS for iTunes Server

    I've just changed houses and am having trouble connecting my QNAP NAS to my home network. I'm using an Eero WiFi network, but I can't place the QNAP next to the Eero and plug it in directly (no room). The internet comes via GPON (fiber), then goes into an access point, which, in turn, is...

    Bottlenecks & unpacking the limits of 10/100 Ethernet on iBook G3 clamshell

    To be blunt, I’ve been torn between posting this on the Server/Networking sub-forum or over here, but as it focusses mostly on legacy equipment and Ethernet protocols, the balance seems tipped to favour here. [Mods: you’re welcome to move this over to the other sub-forum if this more...

    MacBook, Dongle-dom & "Single port life"

    How is life with only 1 port? What are the restrictions with non-Thunderbolt 3 compatibility? I am presuming today there aren't many devices though this may change. Is the 5Gbps upper limit an issue, or is this just for "pro" use, i.e. multi-5k screens, plus TB3-native SSDs or eGPUs? Is there...

    Boost ethernet speed MacBook Pro 8,1

    This may seem like a stupid question, but is there any way to boost the speed of my ethernet port (my router is 1gb/s), but using GeForce NOW and streaming to twitch at the same time causes for significant packet loss in the game. Is there any way I can fix it? (Hardware, software, etc)?
