    I don't think Apple is ignoring this—especially as the views on this thread now number about 3500. However, the posts only number some 50, suggesting the problem might not be as widepread as those of us affected feel it is.

    If the posts hit 3500 in the next few days, it might be different.

    To get a faster acknowledgement out of Apple, it needs to hit the mainstream sites like AppleInsider, MacIntouch, etc.

    The odd thing is that this problem was not in DP3 and maybe not DP4 but it was certainly there in the developer GM release and Apple was informed of it.

    Everyone posting here with the problem also needs to file a bug report with Apple (http://bugreport.apple.com); that will raise a red flag too.

    I hope there is a 10.7.1 patch in Software Updates soon.

    Hello, I upgraded my new iMac 27 to Lion yesterday and I have the same problem: when iMac comes back from sleep, Wifi appears to be connected (icon in taskbar is black, full signal) but I have not internet connection. I need to deactivate/reactivate airport to be able to go online again.

     

    REALLY ANNOYING!!!!

     

    Note: I had 0 problem with Snow Leopard.

    I had a similar problem, my wifi kept timing out.

    So I went and clear the cache.... and then I unpluged my router and it works fine now

    ALL you have to do is clear the cache in Safari...don't restart

    Then unplugg the router, plug back up and connect.... it should work fine after that.

    I am having the same problem. I have a 20" iMac and the wifi keeps droping off and when it is connected, it's super slow. I also have a 15 MBP and a mac mini that seem to be working fine. Frustrating!!!

    Same here -

     

    my one week old Mac Book Pro 13" worked great with Snow Leopard, but since the Lion upgrade my company's WiFi network isn't connecting anymore. At home and in coffee shops it all works fine, but this one I just can't get to connect anymore... just like BT Openzone - but that never worked for me even though I'm apparently a member.

     

    Lion was free for me because of the Up-To-Date programme but I may just get that time machine backup out and go back to Snow Leopard. If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

    Changing the channel my router broadcasts on from automatically selecting one to 11 seems to have been the solution for me.  Might not be for everyone else.

    Im glad its just not me, but most everyone else.

    See... I told you all that most likely Lion would be a bitter pill to swallow.

    That is, until the updates arrive from apple to fix "issues".

    WiFi is a mess under Lion. It wont connect to my 5G at all.

    And non-5G connects but drops off every so many minutes.

     

    This is not Adobe or flash or this or that... Its a Lion bug.

    Dont bother jumping through hoops to fix this on the user end.

    The "fix" is solely in apples ballpark.

     

    I figured this would happen....

    After upgrading to Lion I had wifi problems (intermittent connection) on my iMac and MBP, iPad and AppleTV. It was only resolved when I reset my DSL wifi router, starting from factory settings. Since then everything has been working for 24 hours without a glitch.

    Note that I just tried to eject my time machine backup drive, set my iMac to sleep, restarted it and this time my Wifi connection worked (no DNS error message). I wonder if it is related..?

     

    This is so frustrating. I pretty much tried all possible workaround. Steve, we will need your help...

    Same problem at my side!!!!

     

    I am not an expert but I think the following excerpt from kernel.log shows what happens when wi-fi goes away (in my case):

     

    Jul 24 09:49:24 localhost kernel[0]: en1: BSSID changed to bc:05:43:52:2f:b6

    Jul 24 09:50:08 localhost kernel[0]: en1: BSSID changed to bc:05:43:52:2f:b6

    Jul 24 09:51:18 localhost kernel[0]: en1: BSSID changed to bc:05:43:52:2f:b6

     

    Then I start the network-diagnostics and wi-fi works again (for 5 to 10 minutes...):

     

    Jul 24 09:52:54 localhost kernel[0]: AirPort: Link Down on en1. Reason 8 (Disassociated because station leaving).

    Jul 24 09:52:54 localhost kernel[0]: 2124.508637: setDISASSOCIATE ****STA SYNC DISASSOC SUCCESS 

    Jul 24 09:52:54 localhost kernel[0]: en1: BSSID changed to bc:05:43:52:2f:b6

    Jul 24 09:52:54 localhost kernel[0]: AirPort: Link Up on en1

    Jul 24 09:52:54 localhost kernel[0]: en1: BSSID changed to bc:05:43:52:2f:b6

    Jul 24 09:52:54 localhost kernel[0]: AirPort: RSN handshake complete on en1

     

    This definitely must be BUG and as google and this community show me I`m not the only one having this problem! Hurry up APPLE!!!
