Hardware :: Dropping Wifi Connection - App?

Apr 11, 2009

I work for a business that sells a lot of computers, Macs specifically. We've got a wi-fi network in our building; however, the network constantly drops out. Despite our pleas to IT, they will not fix the issue. Our demo computers that customers can play with and consider purchasing often lose Internet access because of this. Whenever this happens, I have to manually turn the Airport off and then back on again, which will get it to reconnect. Does anybody know of a way to have the computer automatically do this every so often?

Hardware :: IMac Dropping WiFi Active Connection

Jul 31, 2010

My Linksys WRT610N with the latest firmware worked fantastically on multiple Windows 7-based ThinkPad. However, three (3) different iMac's have had the very same problem of dropping the connection and of my having to powercycle both my cable modem and the W610 router for it to work again at all! Once it drops the active connection, that's it. I have tried a few different settings and nothing has made a difference.

Can you maybe help point me in the right direction or should I just ditch it for an AirPort Extreme or Time Capsule? One additional point: It works worst in the 5GHz frequency band, even though there are none in my neighborhood, and if there are, they have their SSID's (network name) hidden. The 2.4GHz band is extremely crowded where I am which makes it difficult to enjoy my WiFi connection.

Intel Mac :: It Keeps Dropping And Instantly Resetting My Wifi Connection

Mar 28, 2012

Every 2-20 minutes, my iMac is dropping, then instantly resetting my wifi connection. The actual wifi drop lasts no longer than 5 seconds, and instantly reconnects itself with no input from me... the problem is it completely interrupts any downloading, streaming, gaming, or anything else I might be doing that requires a constant internet connection. It seems to drop off just long enough to stop the connection, then it resets all on it's own.

I'm currently using a mid-2011 27 inch iMac intel core i5 3.1 ghz processor w/ OS X Lion 10.7.3. I have a Linksys router and a GCI issued modem, unsure of the brand as there are minimal markings on it. The internet/tv service (run by GCI) is smooth throughout the rest of my home, and no other items we own connected to the net seem to have the same problem...

I have tried soft resets on both the modem and router. I have restarted my machine several times and re-added the network location and wifi connection to my computer. I have unplugged both modem and router to let those reset and have unplugged and reconnected my coax cable for several minutes as well. No time of day seems to work well, and it's becoming quite difficult to work and do other fun functions like stream television or game

Mac Pro :: Wifi Connection Dropping From Time To Time?

Mar 15, 2012

MacPro wifi connection dropping from time to time I'm having a strange issue around my MacPro 1,1 2006. When I startup the computer, the wifi runs fine, good connection (all bars), fast response, etc... But something like 20 to 30min after that, the wifi logo still with all bars but even google doesn't load. So, my network is a modem and 3 routers, the first one is a Linksys that goes through cable to a Time Capsule 1TB (were the Macpro connects) and from there to another router in the floor above, a Pacific wifi. My Macbook Pro 15" connects perfectly to my time machine, but the MacPro have this issue.

OS X :: Airport Connection Keeps Dropping Connection To Computer

Jul 29, 2010

Two computers in the house MacBook and iMac, running on an Airport Extreme network, which includes an Airport Express plugged into the stereo.

A brief power outage the other night (perhaps unrelated), and in the morning, the network was wonky: the iMac was only getting two or three bars, streaming radio to the Express kept flickering on and off. When that happens, rebooting the Airport base station, the router, and the Express usually takes care of it.

Since the reboot, the iMac hasn't been able to keep a connection to the network, and often can't find it. It may start off, but then loses the connection and then times out trying to reconnect. Or the network doesn't even appear in the list. Read that launching Network and running Diagnostic will fix problems and it sometimes does, but never for long.

All this time except for one brief bit where it suffered the same problem the MacBook has had no problem connecting to the network and the Internet.

Have rebooted everything multiple times in various orders, run Disk Utility, and even gone ahead and upgraded the iMac to Snow Leopard (laptop was recently upgraded).

OS X :: Internet Connection Keeps Dropping Connection?

Aug 12, 2009

I know there are a lot of similar threads all around different forums, but nothing really helped and I was hoping some of you smart ladies/guys can help solve this issue once and for all.

Here's the deal:

My main desktop computer (Compaq windows XP computer) is set-up upstairs where the cable router and linksys wireless router are placed (which is right next to the desktop on the desk). My Macbook (running Tiger and is 3 years old) and iMac (running Leopard and is not even 1 year old yet) are set-up downstairs in my new office. This room is in the basement, however the room is almost directly above the main office where the wired desktop computer resides.

Prior to setting up my office downstairs, my sister lived with my family in the basement and had her windows Vista laptop set-up without any internet connection issues. Her internet never dropped on her laptop, and neither did the connection on her wireless all-in-one printer/scanner/copier. Cell phone reception/internet connection in the basement is also great.

When I set up my iMac and Macbook however a few weeks ago, the internet keeps dropping connection! I do not understand this when my sister had no problems at all with her laptop getting internet connection, when she was living with us. The internet connection will stay good for either 10-30 minutes and then drop, or it could be good for up to an hour and then drop.

Is anyone else having problems with SL dropping your wireless connections. I've never had any problems with Leopard and my home wireless network but SL has dropped my connection numerous times since I did my install. The only way to recover seems to be to reboot my computer.

Intel Mac :: Lion Keep Dropping WiFi

May 8, 2012

My Lion OS 10.7.3 iMac just does not seem to be able to hold a stable connection with my home wifi network. After around ten minutes, sometimes more, sometimes less, usually when I've gotten up to do something else, the wifi is lost. It stays "connected" to the network (ie the wifi bars are black) but no internet comes through. Every time this happens, I turn WiFi off and reconnect and it fixes it every time, but it is still extremely inconvenient and troublesome to have to redo this constantly.

OS X Mavericks :: WiFi Keeps Dropping Out Every 5-10 Minutes

Aug 27, 2014

I've noticed recently my wifi seems to drop every 5-10 minutes. 

I don't see any signs, no exclamation marks etc. I just find web pages take a long time to load, I go into the Network Preferences > Assist Me > Diagnostics and via that I see a yellow mark next to various areas (it changes but it's usually 2 or 3 of either the ISP, Wifi or Server).  If I hit continue and go through the process on in the diagnostics section it re connects to my wifi and works again for the 10 minutes or so. 

I don't find this happening on my other devices. Is there any way I can find out why it's dropping so often? 

Software  OS X 10.9.4

ITunes For Mac :: WiFi Network Is Dropping Out Every So Often

Dec 2, 2014

Out of nowhere--i.e. independent of any changes to my system, settings, equipment, etc.--the audio from my iTunes feed to my WiFi network is dropping out every so often. No pattern to it, just once every couple of minutes or so the sound just disappears for a second or three. My iTunes/media is proprietarily serviced--independent of my data WiFi--by an older Airport XPress which is hooked up to my stereo. I've restarted everything in the setup but it keeps happening. The data WiFI is independently serviced by an Airport Xtreme.

OS X :: Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping On IMac C2D?

Jan 24, 2007

My iMac has been connected wirelessly to my D-Link DI-604 802.11g router for near 4 months now.

About 3 days ago, the iMac started to exhibit strange problems.

Every 3-4 minutes, the connection drops.

The airport icon at the top shows full bars (and the router is about 2 feet from the iMac) but the internet does not work anymore.

Also, if I deconnect and try to reconnect, at first it gives me an error ("there was an error connecting to network XXX"), then my network disappears from the list for 1-2minutes and then I can connect.

I think it has to do with an authentication problem but the password is correct etc.

I don't know what may cause this.

My PC with a wireless card is unaffected.

It seems to be a software problem with my iMac.

OS X :: MacBook Airport Keeps Dropping Connection?

Feb 20, 2008

I have had my MacBook sense Oct. 2006 and not until recently had any problems with the airport. Currently it will connect to any network as per usual and then with out notice just cut out for a few seconds and then come back on.

This isn't a huge pain if Im just browsing the net but if I am trying to hold a conversation using skype, IM, or downloading things it can get very very annoying. It cuts out about every 2 mins. It is not a problem with weak signal because when it is on it is showing full bars.

I have tried it under both my home network and my university network both resulting in the same thing. Is this a hardware issue (crossing fingers it isn't!)? Anybody having similar problems?

OS X :: Macbook Pro Keeps Dropping Wireless Connection???

Aug 27, 2009

Is there something wrong with my computer?? Some special update that I don't know about?? this is so annoying!! I'm running Leopard 10.5.8 but this happened also on 10.5.7 and I am using an early macbook pro model - about 3 years old. I will be connected to the wireless fine all day then like right now it drops the signal and i have to hook my computer up to an ethernet cable. I can restart modem, router, and computer but I haven't found a solution except to try again in a couple of hours and it will work fine. I know it's a problem with the computer itself and my apple care just expired so i hope it's not a hardware issue. Anyone know anything? I've tried changing the password protection on the router but still same result. Just pissed off that my $3000 computer can't hold a wireless signal.

Intel Mac :: Internet Connection Keeps Dropping Out

Jul 6, 2012

I have an iMac (without an Airport Base). It is connected to a Sky router through an Ethernet cable but still with wireless capabilities. The internet connection keeps dropping out at regular intervals throughout the day to the point that my partner may just throw it out the window! The router lights still show it is connected as does the wifi signal at the top of the screen. Our iPhones still work even when the Mac drops off.
