Technical resolution to OS X El Capitan Wi-Fi issues
Be it Max OS X Yesomite, OS X El Capitan, macOS Sierra, or any other previous Mac version, they are badly suffered with Wi-Fi issues. Although Apple has largely resolved various wi-fi issues persisted in some Macs, yet OS X El Capitan users are, still, likely to encounter wireless networking issues after they updated to the latest OS X release. Basically, Wi-Fi issues belong to dropping connections and slow speeds. In case, you face major or minor OS X El Capitan Wi-Fi issues, you can simply dial a toll-free Apple OS X technical support phone number.
Generally, ditching old preference files, network location creation with custom DNS settings, and an MTU change can instantly help you get rid of wi-fi problems with Apple Mac OS X. Before you start deleting a few system level preference files and creating a new network location, it will be good for you if you can take a backup of the Mac to save your valuable data from being lost. After this, move to the following suggestions from Apple technical support professionals. These include:
Trash Existing Wi-Fi Preferences
- Make a new folder on your Desktop with reference to ‘wifi prefs backup’.
- In the upper right corner of OS X, turn off Wi-Fi from the menu item.
- Then, move to Finder and hit Command+Shift+G and select the following path (/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/) to bring up the Go to Folder command.
- Locate and select the following files in the folder: com.apple.airport.preferences.plist
apple.network.identification.plist; com.apple.wifi.message-tracer.plist; NetworkInterfaces.plist; and preferences.plist.
- Move all of these files into the folder which is related to ‘wifi prefs backup’.
- Reboot the Mac and turn on Wi-Fi.
It is likely that these steps will make things happen without making you opt for Mac technical support for OS X El Capitan Wi-Fi. If not, it is possible that you need to create a new custom network location.
