iPads and iPhone connect t9 motel WiFi, rMBP Pro doesn’t. Flushed the lease, no change. I see that Airport Utility says it has no internet but it reports the Spark DNS servers, which won’t apply in the motel.

Tried hotspot to my phone, no go. How can I reset network settings in OS X Mojave?

Jase2985:

Its N and channel 11. I just fixed it. The Airport Utility clue of the Spark DNS, I went to Networks, DNS, there is a non intuitive way to get rid of them, so that worked. I thought it was confused and still semi attached to my Airport BaseStation or Spark fibre, so kept holding the DNS state

 

Dumb for what this cost... 

 

Cheers for the reply Jase

You say it connects to hotel wireless but says no Internet.

 

You say it connects to mobile phone hotspot but still no Internet.

 

I'd say the Spark DNS were manually set on this computer - and these servers probably won't accept connections from foerign networks - I'd say neither the mobile network or hotel network are with Spark.

 

Look on how to change your computer's network settings to use automatic DHCP settings instead of manually configured.

I think you are correct.The servers are in there, I must have added them. Which broke when it left home.
