No, it just means you didn't take the time to troubleshoot the issue while you were still runniing 10.8.5.

Yep, same problem herein relation to the Mac and WIFI connection...No issue with my router...
10.8.5 makes it look like your MAC (2007 MBP in my case) doesn't have a WIFI H/W installed.
Using a back-up harddrive and all comes up OK.
Installed an old level of the WIFI Kext and the WIFI is detected OK, but gives immediate timeout when trying to connect (2.4 or 5g).
Installed an old airportd....Well, I had to leave for work, so I really am not sure if this helped or not...I'll let you know in about 8hrs...hopefully someone else can get work the issue.
Good luck...I hate to think Apple is following the Microsoft model...Frankly the 2007 airport support has been very poor since Mountian Lion.

I experienced the same problems as well. No wifi after 10.8.5. Tried restarts and safe mode. Nothing
Then I did a full cleanup with OnyX and it solved the problem

I have the same problem. It will search and search for networks.
If I remove the wifi under network and reboot. Add the wifi back under network then my wifi will work for that session. If I reboot it reverts back to search for networks continuously.
This happend right after the 10.8.5 update.
I also read to try and install the 10.8.5 combo update, wifi worked durring the frist reboot but then reverted back to the way it was after.

Shutdown your computer for 5 minutes. Disconnect AC power. Then restart and check if the issue disappears. If not, then try Resetting your SMC. THat is helping some other folks seeing the same issue in other threads.

I tried that earlier, took out the battery and held down the power button for 30 seconds to be sure as well.
Could it be similar to this thread from the past? The symtoms look the same.

Delete the existing WiFi connector and create a new one.

Try the other SMC reset option as well - the one that involves holding Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time ( with power connected).
If that doesn't work, try shutting down the machine for 5 minutes with AC power disconnected. One of these 2 methods seems to be working for most guys in the other threads seeing the same issue.
