Toggle Wifi workflow

I have this bug, that at least once a day my MacBooks internet will stop working. Disconnecting from and reconnecting to wifi will usually fix this quickly. Therefore I adjusted this script slightly:


on alfred_script(q)
    set wifi to (do shell script "networksetup -listallhardwareports | grep -A 1 Wi-Fi | tail -n 1 | cut -b 9-12")
    do shell script "networksetup -setairportpower " & wifi & " off"
    do shell script "networksetup -setairportpower " & wifi & " on"
end alfred_script

It will now turn off wifi and instantly turn it back on again. Therefore running this workflow fixes my internet within a couple seconds.

Hey Janshi


Your problem sounds like an issue with your wifi-network. I hope you find a solution for it.


Concerning your script: I think you'd be better off creating a new custom workflow for it, since it does something completely different to the toggle-wifi script.
