I fetched my grande two-pump sugar-free vanilla skinny latte and sat down in the chair, opened the laptop and watched it wake up and connect to the AT&T wireless access point.
But much to my dismay nothing would load over the network.
I then found I was able to connect normally with my i Phone to the AT&T Wi Fi network and get a “real” IP address (192.x), so I quickly deduced that something was wrong with my Mac. You’d think that would be the first place I’d look, being a security guy.
I had to give up on troubleshooting and head back out into the world, but I spent the rest of the day wondering if maybe there was something about the MAC address for my wireless card that AT&T had chosen to hate. They’re kind of hidden in plain sight, a few layers deep in the Mac’s preferences dialogs.
The Air Port icon in the status bar showed the name of the network and indicated that I was connected to the access point, but I had no connection to the Internet.
After a brief bit of trying over and over to load a web page, I checked the network preferences in the apple system preferences panel and found that I was not getting an IP address.
I've got a Mac Book Air running Mojave and a HUB 3.0. Apple Community Forums As some of them require you to remove or alter files I wouldn't want to link any specific fixes to try as i OS isn't the operating system I'm experienced with.

Thanks, Tom_S I dont know what the issue is - all my Macs "just work" but I would post the question in the Usenet group (yes they are still active! --------------------Services: HD TV on VIP ( Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 Wi Fi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router.
I dropped into a Starbucks this afternoon, all prepared to get some emails written and to get some work done between my Sunday afternoon and evening commitments.
Everything was fresh in my mind and ready to go via the keyboard and onto the screen.
