    Can’t enable WiFi calling.

    Been working with Verizon but still can’t find a way to enable WiFi calling. Every time I try to turn it on on my iPhone I get the message “to allow WiFi calling on this account, contact Verizon”. Verizon assures me it is enabled and activated on their end. Anyone had this problem?

    I spilled a bit of water on the upper right side of my laptop (pro, 13in Retina early 2015) and now I cannot access WiFi.

    iPhone Wifi Issues

    This is going to sound weird - I have an XS Max and have had wifi issues since day one. 50% of the time, my phone lags on wifi. Gets much slower than LTE, despite having a fast 300mbps internet. The weird thing is - If I pull down the Control Center, it immediately speeds up. I can literally...

    ATV4k saturates my gigabit network. Seems to work better on wifi.

    This has been rather nuts. If the ATV4k is on and streaming, the entire network is practically unusable. Nothing can get out, although I can still get email announcements but can't check them. After doing some research, people said to switch it to wifi, and it works better. Well, I did, and it...

    MP 1,1-5,1 Wifi won't reconnect after waking

    I have a MacPro5,1 that I've had some luck refurbishing. I've successfully flashed a PC ATI HD 7950 card, and got that working fairly well in the machine (DVI only, crud.) But I'm having ongoing issues with the wifi not reconnecting after a reboot or waking from sleep. I believe it is the...

    All Devices Sync via WiFi

    I can't find where / how to sync via WiFi. By "sync", perhaps what I really mean is "backup" as in "Back up all of the data on your iPhone to this Mac". In iOS 12 and before, I could go to Settings => General and sync (which I took to mean the same thing as "backup" since there is only one...

When I tap the screen to wake, I see my wifi symbol for like half a second, then it shows 4G, and then after a second or 2, it is once again connected to wifi. The issue is that this eliminates me using...
