Hi. My old Mac has suddenly forgotten how to see my WiFi. I’m following list of things to try and on tcp/ip it’s missing ip4address. I clicked renew dhcp lease but I need to add client I’d for it???

This is how it looks on on my Air, is yours the same or similar?

It’s an “if required” field, not required for VM.

Re: What is virgin dhcp client id

Basically I’m on virgin and iPads and iPhones can use my home WiFi but old Mac air can’t even see any WiFi to log on. Hence following some online things to try and make it see the WiFi. It searches but doesn’t find. It logs on with Ethernet just not WiFi

Re: What is virgin dhcp client id

If its not seeing any available networks then perhaps its wifi card has failed. Perhaps you could get a cheap wifi dongle and try that?
