Dual WiFi Networks on Mac OSX (Speedify with 2 WiFi Connections on a Mac)

Things You’ll Need:

Step 1. Get a USB WiFi adapter from Amazon compatible with OSX. There are many options, but I can be for certain the linked adapter works with the linked drivers (and Speedify)

Step 2. Install the drivers. This will enable a USB-WiFi pane in your navigation bar:

The drivers will also enable the USB Network Adapter in your Wireless Settings Pane:

Step 3. Get Speedify Running
There are many ways to tunnel a connection over multiple networks, but Speedify has made this a super simple task. You can even tether your phone for 3 total tunnels to the internet (Built adapter, USB Adapter, Phone Tether).

I’ll be doing a write-up soon on how this setup performs by connecting to two Coffee shops simultaneously.

WiFi USB Adapter Drivers (OSX/Mac, Linux, and Windows)

After purchasing a Wireless Dual Band adapter from Amazon and trying to use it on my Mac, I ran into the issue of having no CD drive to get the drivers onto my 2015 Macbook Pro. Thankfully, the seller was quick to respond and provide a digital file with the relevant drivers.

These drivers were provided to me specifically for this product:
1200Mbps USB Wifi Adapter YOTECE Wireless Dual Band (2.4G/300Mbps+5G/867Mbps) Network wifi 3.0 Antenna Dongle Adapter for WIN 7 /8 / 8.1 /10 Mac OS X 10.7-10.12.4

They will work with Realtek based USB wifi adapters – which is most of the devices on the market.

A note for linux users: More recent versions of Linux (Linux 18, Ubuntu 16) may have trouble using the provided driver. For Ubuntu users, the set of commands below has lead others to successful use of the adapter. Other linux users, please share your successes or problems with the driver.
sudo apt purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.git
sudo cp -r rtl8812au /usr/src/rtl8812au-4.2.2
sudo dkms add -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms build -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms install -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2

You should have luck using the attached drivers for any of the following devices with 150Mbps,300Mbps, 600Mbps, 900Mbps. Both 2.4 & 5GHz and AC300, AC600, AC900, AC1200+. 802.11ac / 802.11b / 802.11g / 802.11c devices should be good.

GDAX / Coinbase “Cancel only state”

During peak times, GDAX may reject all orders with the message “Cancel Only State”.

This “pause” on the market allows Coinbase to avoid crashing and building up of the order-book during a market overload. Attempting to place an order during this time will cause it to be immediately rejected.

These pauses can last a varying amount of time. No use making a fuss about it, just try again later!

BCH – The Green Bitcoin

Bitcoin Cash just became the “Green Version Bitcoin” as Coinbase has made this slightly rotated green Bitcoin symbol the icon for Bitcoin Cash.
Green being for cash, this move makes sense as previously it has been quite difficult to distinguish the two coins, especially with bitcoin.com claiming Bitcoin Cash as the main chain of bitcoin.

 

In my opinion, this new logo is a great step for Bitcoin Cash and reduces much of the confusion from the crappy logo difference between BTC and BCH.

How To: Convert Coinbase BCH to BTC (Bitcoin Cash to Bitcoin)

Coinbase is posed to allow for BCH withdrawals sometime in late 2017 or early 2018. Given they will only be allowing customers to withdraw their BCH (Bitcoin Cash) many users are interested in having their BCH converted to Bitcoin, Ethereum or Litecoin.

Due to the large amount of Coinbase users planning on liquidating their BCH as soon as it is available, I expect a drop in the BCH value once Coinbase enables withdrawals. The sooner you convert your BCH, the better!

You can get started using one of these conversion links. I will be writting a quick walkthrough below on the process step by step.
