TL-WR702N to the rescue

It has been more than two weeks since I upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks on my old MacBook Pro. It is also more than two weeks since the upgrade broke my Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi actually worked for a while before it went dead. A subsequent reboot resulted in the indicator showing “Wi-Fi: No hardware installed”.

I have tried all the advices and solutions I could google. I tried anything from resetting the SMC/NVRAM/PRAM to doing a clean reinstall of the operating systems. Downgrading to Mountain Lion or using a USB network adapter did not help too. These had me thinking whether Mavericks had killed my Wi-Fi or my Wi-Fi is no longer supported with any device driver. Maybe it’s the VirtualBox update I did but highly unlikely since I reinstalled…

Hence in comes theĀ TL-WR702N by TP-LINK, a 150Mbps wireless N portable router. My friend happened to have one on hand so we gave its client mode a try. The client mode allows the router to be connected to another device via Ethernet core and acts as an adapter to send/receive the wireless signal from a wireless network.

It worked! Therefore I went out to get myself one for S$34. It is supposed to be a stopgap fix but with no solution in sight, apart from buying a new MacBook, I think I may have to carry the router around with me for good.

IAmHere is now BFB!

The little app I did called I Am Here has obtained the Built For BlackBerry status after I did a rewrite using native BBOS10 codes. Hopefully BlackBerry continues to be relevant in the smartphone market as the operating system is efficient, the hardware is powerful and developing apps on it is easy.
