Hiya,

When I enable AirDrop on my hackintosh using the following code
Code:
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser BrowseAllInterfaces 1
It kills my Internet, it assigns an unknown ip address!

If I disable AirDrop everything seems to work fine.

Any ideas

Stupidly, I tried this to enable my airdrop. It didn't disable my internet, but It appears to be running extra extremely slow. My issue is that I now don't know how to disable Airdrop as you mention here. Could you enlighten me on this? haha

Hiya,

Very easy to disable

Code:
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser BrowseAllInterfaces 0

Change it from 1 to 0

Haha thanks! I figured that was it, but I also thought there was equal chance that It killed all networking lol
