    After trying all the recommended restarts on the MBA and router, I simply deleted all my preferred networks, restarted the MBA, and I could connect just like always.

     

    I recall having to do this once on awhile on Windows as well.

    Hi there, if you re-read what I just wrote, I'm saying that this worked for me.

    I'm having the same problem. Nirmals44's (thanks!) steps 1-4 worked just fine, but everytime my computer goes to sleep it starts all over again. I'm getting pretty tired of having to trash preferences everytime. If anyone is experiencing the same, please let me know. Pretty ****** at this, to be honest...

    This is not just a MacBook Air problem. This is my third MacBook since 2011, a retina, none were Airs, every one of my MacBooks had annoying issues with wifi, particularly not reconnecting after a drop, and all of them sometimes had this issue. I could see all the neighbors and other devices could connect to my wifi but my mac refused to acknowledge its existence.

    Yesterday, I switched my ADSL modem to a 4G modem and this new Retina MacBook was not happy about it. In near proximity were 3 other computers, 2 tablets, 2 phones and a few other odd devices and all were able to connect easily. Included there was a 2011 MacBook and an iPad. This new MacBook finally connected after swinging it Tarzan-style from the ceiling in front of the modem while the cats hypnotized the MacBook with their snake-charming abilities. It worked just fine for 24hrs, then a new tablet walked into the house and the MacBook gave the modem the cold shoulder again. Tarzan was of no use, this time. The iPad, on the other hand, hasn't had any trouble with this at all.

    I don't really think it was the new device that caused this, since I've had this problem on and off on all MacBooks, but deleting the other preferred networks according to nirmals44 suggestion instantly fixed the connection. I wish it was the iPad that was the problem, I'd throw it out the window, because as others have said, that will be annoying to have to repeat. I will install another operating system on my MacBook, if I have to do this again, Apple, please fix this, iWiFi is ridiculously buggy.

    Update: it worked perfectly for 10 minutes. Now the MacBook shows it is still connected to the wifi, but it's not getting any data. All other devices are still working as normally.
