    What Cool Things Can I Do with a 5th Gen AirPort Extreme (A1408) and 6th Gen AirPort Extreme (A1521)?

    M1 Mac network speed.

    I have just replaced a 2008 iMac for an M1 Mac Mini. Wireless speed is painfully slow at times where it takes an age to connect to, or screen share the M1 from my main iMac, late 2015. Using the exact same network, with settings that ape the ones on my main iMac, I am getting about 70Mbps. My...

    How long should 2 AA batteries last in an Apple wireless mouse? So far, I am getting about 4-5 weeks... that seems horrible.

    I bought an older (Late 2013) iMac from my university and with it came an Apple Wireless Mouse, the not-rechargable kind that takes two AA batteries. I got the iMac and mouse out of storage recently and put in some batteries I had, then noticed that a couple of weeks later I was getting...

    Upgrade Your MacBook's Wireless Card! (WiFI AC + BT4.2) (Open Source Guide!)

    If you're like me and still holding on to a Unibody MacBook from 2010 - 2012, you'll have noticed that the wireless connectivity can be lacking on these models! While this guide won't cover Macbooks made in 2009 and prior (at least not yet), I will be focussing on Macbooks made from 2010...

    I'm assuming there's a really simple answer for this. The wireless in my apartment is shared by many people. The router itself is in a very inconvenient location for me to physically access however the signal it provides works just fine. I need to connect the "Hue Bridge" to a router with an...
