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.

Intel Mac :: WiFi Still Dropping Even After Clean Lion Install

Jun 28, 2012

I upgraded to Lion after its release and ever since then my wifi has been driving me crazy. The wifi disconnects, and when I click on my network I get the error that the connection timed out. I'm always forced to turn the wifi off and then back on.†It happened a ton, and consistently. It's extremely frustrating especially when I'm in the middle of a movie on my Apple TV and my iMac loses its internet and interrupts the show. Sometimes it happens three or more times during one show.†So I decided to do a clean install of Lion. I made sure all my important documents were on my Hard Drive and even wrote a list out of every application that I use regularly. Then I completely reformatted my hard drive and did a clean install of Lion.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: WiFi Dropping Out On 10.7.4

Jun 25, 2012

Since I updated my Macbook pro to 10.7.4 my Wi-Fi connection is dropping out every 10 / 15 minutes, then I disable and enable and back to normal, a thousand times each day since last Saturday, it is boring!

I called Apple Support today, and we spent all morning trying to correct with some procedures, but nothing worked.

Intel Mac :: It Is Constantly Dropping Wifi Signal

Mar 18, 2012

My iMac (purchased Feb 6) is constantly dropping the wifi signal. It seems to happen randomly...sometimes it's there, sometimes not and I must go to Networking icon and all the steps to reconnect!. (My iPad2 and IPhone are not having this problem...or perhaps their 3G has kept me from noticing.)

Intel Mac :: Brand New 27" Keeps Dropping Wifi Connections?

Mar 25, 2012

At least 2-3 times daily my brand new Imac drops the connection to my home network- I have tried to reboot my airport extreme- my ipad and iphone and nest thermostat do not have these issues of dropped connections.  As soon as I click the pale wireless signal at the top of the imac, it finds my home network and joins again, but it is a drag to have to redo this every time I want to stream music around the house or check my mail. All of my updates are current.

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

OS X V10.7 Lion :: WiFi Connection Keeps On Dropping Wasting Much Of Time

My airport keeps dropping and it is wasting so much of my time. I have tried all the methods suggested online and none of the worked. I want to go back to snow leopard but I don't have my disc. And can I have my money back from Lion? I really will not use that until it is fixed.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Internet Sharing Dropping Wifi Signal After Update To 10.7.4

May 24, 2012

Equipment: iMac 21.5" 2.5GHz Quad Core i5  

Internet Set-up: Cable modem to iMac Ethernet 

Problem: After recent update to Lion 10.7.4, my Wi-Fi signal via Internet Sharing keeps dropping. Have multiple iDevices failing that were working perfectly with 10.7.3 (Nook and iPhone 4). iPhone shows full Wi-Fi signal strength and works for a short time after reset (via Wi-Fi off/on, Internet Sharing off/on). Continues to show full Wi-Fi signal strength but loses connection after 1-2 minutes. And not just internet connection; I can't transfer pics/vids from iPhone to iMac either. Have switched to a channel no one nearby is using (channel 9) to no avail.

OS X :: SL WiFi Dropping Connections

Aug 28, 2009

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.

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?

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.

MacBook Pro :: WiFi Dropping Out Says It Is Still Active In Signal Bar

Jun 2, 2012

My Wi-Fi drops out all the time and I have to reset the WiFi to reconnect. When I look in the signal bar is says it is still connected, this will happen about once every 2 to 3 minutes. I have contacted the apple help desk and was told it must be my modem. I have two phones, an ipad, 2 windows laptops and my macbook pro is the only one that has problems with the WiFi. have also taken it to a repair agent and was told it was my modem.

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.

OS X :: 10.6.1 WiFi Dropping Signals On Late 2007 IMac

Sep 15, 2009

Ever since I installed to 10.6.1, I have been having issues with WiFi.

I'm only getting 3 bars, and my iMac is sitting less then a foot away from my AEBS, on 10.6 I was getting 4, also I've been dropping my WiFi connection every hour or so, and I have to turn AirPort in on my iMac off and turn AirPort back on.

This is really annoying and I don't know what to do, anyone have any ideas?

I've already reset my AEBS twice and that hasn't worked.

Hardware :: Won't Work With TimeCapsule / Dropping WiFi Signal

Jan 24, 2010

My TimeCapsule drops the WiFi signal every 10 minutes or so for about 10 seconds; the light is blinking yellow during that time, and then it comes back to everything ok.
The TC is in Bridge Mode behind my router. I can connect to the internet via the router all the time - no connection lags there, it's just the TimeCapsule that stops the connection. No entries in it's logs, though.
I'm running 10.6.2, and the TimeCapsule is on 7.4.2 (same issue on 7.3.2 and 7.4.1).

As it is, it basically kills iChat and Skype on top of it's impact on web browsing and the like.

OS X :: Wifi Signal Dropping / Showing Bars Full

Aug 23, 2010

all threads are outdated from 2006 and 2007 as far as I looked, or has a different issue. My macbook is a 2009 model running 10.6.4, using a linksys router, signal will drop for no reason. The bars are full, but nothing will connect. NO messenger, web browser, or downloading software will work, like its dead. This usually happens if I keep my computer on over night for huge downloads (1GB+).To fix this, I just have to click on the airport icon on the top right corner of my screen, choose disconnect, wait 3 seconds, then choose reconnect and it will work again.

Hardware :: Dual Band - Wifi Jacked Up And Backups Keep Dropping

Apr 28, 2009

I upgraded my Time Capsule and two AEBS. BIG MISTAKE. Since upgrading, my wifi has been jacked up (Needing reset randomly) & wireless time machine backups keep dropping in error. I have the TC as the main and the AEBS are in bridge mode. I have heard of people downgrading their firmware with success, but the dual band software seems to have this problem across the board.
