Ever tried connecting to a European wireless network running on WiFi Channel 13 using a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9 (Mavericks)…well you can’t. The MacBook doesn’t see the network. Turning stuff off and on doesn’t help.
If you want to, you need to be able to drop your channel to 11 then connect and cross your fingers that it holds the connection when you bump up the channel to 13!
If you are in a hotel where you cannot change the router’s channel, you are screwed.
I really don’t understand this. Apple’s website doesn’t show any means of sorting this out.
I could not access any network adapter setting that would enable me to change the adapter’s channel.
I am assuming that Apple thinks that anyone buying a new MacBook Pro, lives and works in the United States and has a 2nd computer to carry around with them when they travel abroad. How crap is that?!
