OS Monterey Version 12.7.3 (I updated it to latest yesterday)
Imac Late 2015
Hey KM community, I am really hoping someone can help me out here.
On my Imac Late 2015 I have a bug where I can't toggle the wifi on... it wont even scan for networks. It used to.. I have ethernet so I am using that but now I want to move the computer and need wifi enabled.
I looked everywhere on the internet and I can't figure this out..
I tried the following...
From this link:
#2 Reset Wi-Fi network settings
#8 Customize MTU and DNS settings
Reset NVRAM or PRAM
Option-Command-P-R : Reset NVRAM or PRAM.
Deranked another admin user I have and quit all things in that other user, then used my ONLY admin user to troubleshoot.
Force quit everything Activity Monitor
I saw something about wireless diagnostics... I cant get that to open up.
I also updated the Mac to the latest version, it still didn't work.
I deleted the type of network wifi and thunderbolt in the main Location, I made a new location and added those.
I disabled Bluetooth
tried most of these things with ethernet plugged in and without
I deleted the saved networks (my home internet was one of them), since I thought that would trick into finding it again.
I also turned on my iphone hotspot in case my network wasnt being discovered for some reason...
I tried to manually connect with wifi name and password, (WPA/WPA2 Personal).
(I am not well versed in networks, maybe I needed to use the IP address instead of the wifi display name.. im not sure)
The problem looks like a software bug where I cant enable the wifi toggle therefore it isnt even trying to scan for networks to join.
Note about the wifi toggle.. in the top right shortcut it allows me to turn it on, but in the system preferences it never reflects that it actually turns on. The system preferences toggle wont work at all..
Something else I noticed, before I click the turn wifi on button it allows me to display the dropdown and it just says WI-FI: OFF, then when I click the turn wifi on button it doesnt even let me click the drop down anymore, it almost looks like it glitches.
I apologize in advance for asking Keyboard Maestro Forum about this but this community has always been so helpful which is why I love all the times I have contributed over the years... and IT kind of is a keyboard maestro thing... without internet, I cant use it for the things I need
Thank you SOO much in advance. I tried a for a whole day yesterday I cant waste another one.
