    I can't seem to be able to airdrop from my iPhone 5S to my Macbook Air 13" late 2015. I have an iPad mini and the airdrop between the two (iPhone and iPad) works perfectly. On my Macbook I have the latest update of OS X El Capitan (10.11.6). I have tried the firewall fix, obviously also turning Airdrop On on both devices. I don't know what the problem is. When I try to pair the two (because they do appear in each other's radar) is "Network is unavailable. Make sure your network access is enabled."

    Hey, I'm sorry! Someone already gave me the solution and I don't know how to go back to seeing the error message. The solution was simple: I just clicked on "forget network" in the wifi section in both my devices (iPhone and Macbook) and the airdrop worked instantly!
