Command-line for iPhone Wifi Sync

I have a Mac mini which is on sleep but set to wake for network access.

This works very nicely with something like Carbon Copy Cloner as the machine indeed wakes when I sync another machine to the Mac Mini over my network.

But despite the machine waking, iTunes being left as the foreground program, and my iPhone sitting in a charger, it does not wirelessly sync.

I can initially a WiFi sync manually but manually syncing is much inferior to an automated solution.

Is there not a command-line way to do this? So that I can simply attempt a sync around the time I am scheduling my other backups?

Best Funny Wifi Names

If you’ve just bought a brand new router, there are a handful of first steps that you should handle—such as picking a good name for the network SSID (service set identifier). Or if your network has had a generic name for some time, you should also consider changing it up to something more interesting.

The Best Routers and Modems for Every Budget

A good SSID not only makes it easier to identify your network when connecting new devices (which “LINKSYS”…

Dell Precision 7520 laptop with preinstalled Ubuntu 16.04. Software Update failed on a wifi update and broke it

On March 16, 2019 I ran the software update checker and told it to install all updates. (Up-to-date as of the previous week if not later.)

One update, for wifi, failed. I did not log its name because I assumed Ubuntu would roll back the changes. Wrong. On reboot WiFi wasn’t working.

The laptop has an Ethernet port so it is running online. Running the software update returns with no updates needed.

I’ve gone online and found many Ubuntu wifi trouble shooting guides but each one I’ve tried has run into problems after the first few steps.

The PCI WiFi is Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 (rev 78). On the Intel site they have iwlwifi-8265-ucode-22.361476.0.tgz but its for kernel 4.6 not 4.4. (uname -r returns “Kernel: 4.4.0-143-generic”) Its latest update was March 5th which probably lead to the problem on the 16th.

Under Software & Updates Additional drivers Intel Corporation: Unknown This device is using an alternative driver (selected) using oem-wifi-intel-iwlwifi-lp1757035-4.4-dkms driver in DKMS format wrapped by dkms-helper, from oem-wifi-intel-iwlwifi-lp1757035-4.4-dkms-dkms (open source) Only other option is “Do not use”

I selected “Do not use” and the first time it took 5 minutes, the second over 20 minutes and wasn’t finished so I rebooted and it was selected. Selecting the oem driver took maybe 2 seconds but didn’t fix the problem.

I couldn’t tell if the correct module was loaded or not but nothing looked like a WiFi module to me.

I do have a full user data backup and the original factory image so I can restore the image if necessary but will lose all the programs installed except Ubuntu and all the tweaks to the interface.

From what I’ve read Ubuntu will detect the hardware and install the appropriate software except maybe not with these Dell / Intel / Ubuntu drivers. Except there was an updated driver coming though the software update channel.

I don’t know where to go form here. Can I get the driver through Ubuntu or do I have to restore the factory image?

I did submit a report about the error using the error reporting tool but couldn’t find a local copy. It it stored somewhere local?

Thank you for your help,

Luke

WiFi not showing up in terminal

Terminal Says WiFi is not a recognized network service. I have completed instructions below by John A Adams On Oct 28, 18’ but command never returns! What to do next? Somehow I’m not able to upload a photo here!

The same symptom happened to me just now – “WiFi: no hardware installed”. Turns out it was just a corrupted file, not an actual hardware failure. To make your WiFi come back to life, you need to remove “/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.airport.preferences.plist” as in drag it to the trash. To find this guy, open a Finder window. Then go to the menu bar for Finder and select “Go” and then “Go to Folder”. Then enter “/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration” in the dialog box and click “Go” button. Inside the folder that appears you will find “com.apple.airport.preferences.plist”. Drag “com.apple.airport.preferences.plist” to the trash. A few seconds later, it will magically resurrect itself and the little WiFi symbol in the header area comes back all on its own. You may need to select the correct WiFi network to connect to, but all is good again.enter image description hereenter image description here
