MacBook screen flickering

A few weeks ago my MacBook Pro (2013) screen started flickering like crazy, and I thought the machine was on it's way out. It didn't however happen all the time.

Now I've realised that this happens when connected to the wifi router (yallo home hub). If I hotspot off my phone (also yallo) it stops. Any computer expert got any idea what is causing this and how to stop it?

Re: MacBook screen flickering

Not certain, if you have the same issue, but there were a known feature (totally not a bug) with Macbook Retinas several years ago, which may have the same reason.Thread here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4441040?page=17

The problem may be with any auxiliary equipment and the WiFi connection may be just the last drop to cause this type of malfunction. If (although it is unlikely and may be a coincidence, that is what you report) suggest, that with a mobile hotspot there is no issue, while with another wifi there is an issue, then a logical step is check the differences in the wifi properties (e.g. 2.4 vs 5GHz, speed, channel etc.). When you will learn the differences, than you can experiment with settings of your router to find which property is causuing the malfunction
