    WiFi signal drops intermittently

  3. Hi, I've been dealing with this issue for a while now. In January I talked to Apple and kinda fixed it, but sometimes the issue comes back. I recently had to switch to a new router cause mine stopped working and now my MBP seems to be dropping signal, takes a long time to load and when it seems to catch the signal the website that I am trying to load, loads instantly, so I know it's not an internet issue, more of my computer connecting and receiving/dealing with information from the router. All this happens without losing connection to my router, the wifi icon on my MBP never gets greyed out, and according to iStat Menus, Airport is receiving/sending data. My other devices are not presenting this problem, they connect to the internet and I am able to load websites and such. Here's what I've already tried: *Reset router to factory settings / Changed SSID name and password / Channel set to AUTO * Done side by side connection speed tests of my MBP and the Windows laptop. Windows speed: 2.50MB/s - Macbook Pro: 1.75 MB/s *Changed my network settings accordingly with suggested settings I've found in this article. Any suggestions on this topic will be greatly appreaciated. I am a freelance designer and work from home so having reliable connection to the internet is a must for me.
  4. Hello, I recently installed Octane Render, and since then I've noticed some issues with my Video Memory. I know that I don't have the best Video Card out there, but it has been performing just fine with After Effects and Premiere before I installed Octane. I use iStat Menus to keep track of my system, and for a couple of days now I've noticed that my GeForce won't go above 30FPS and the Memory bar is almost half way full, pretty much all the time, this is without running Octane, Cinema 4D, Premiere or After Effects. Right now I have Spotify running, Chrome and Mail running and this is what Stat Menus shows: I've tried restarting the computer but somehow Memory is always like that. And also, sometimes my cursor gets huge on the screen for a fraction of time, and I've seen glitches on my screen. Again this happens when I'm not using any render heavy applications, and it didn't happen before installing Octane. When using Octane and After Effects, the memory bar of the GPU goes past halfway full, and I understand this, but how do I make it go back after using all the applications I use? *What else can I try? Is there a way to purge Video Memory like you purge Ram? I've done the NVRAM reset but that doesn't seem to help a lot. If someone could explain how this Video Memory thing works I would greatly appreciate it, maybe I don't have a complete understanding of it. Here are my system specs: Macbook Pro Retina (Late 2013) OSX 10.11.1 - El Capitan 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 16 GB DDR3 - RAM NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048MB - running the Web Driver not the OSX default. * I have two monitors plugged into the MBP all the time.
