    After installing 10.9.2, I just reset my router to all the channels that the router would do, that my MBP supported. Way more in the Mac than the R6300. For the most part it will hook up for a couple of seconds, then drop saying there is no WiFi to connect to, then the machine freezes. But it constantly tries to connect then fails, most of the time not freezing. But the strange things is that it's trying to connect.

    This issue has been absolutely maddening for me.  So much so that when Apple came out with their Mavericks fix this week and the issue was not addressed, a posting where I was at my wit's end was deleted by Apple.

     

    I still believe in Apple products because I've used PCs and PCs are certainly for the birds.  However, in searching this forum, I came across a response by an Apple tech guru about changing router channels.

     

    I am looking for any type of fix that won't involve surrending my computer for days on end to the Genius, having to resintall operating systems and praying no data is lost.

     

    Anyway, got on the phone to Linksys technical support and turns out they have received numerous calls from Mavericks users.  The person I spoke to knew exactly which channel to change to.  Did so, and am getting lightning fast connectivity with no hang-ups.

     

    Please you-who-are-in-charge-of-the universe may this continue!!!!!

    PROVES, my WiFi Card is for some REASON LOSING POWER. PROOF WILL BE IF THIS REPEATS...

     

    Then reset the SMC if you haven't already:

    Well, what channel was it?!

  • chefcarolb Level 1 (0 points)

    She had me change the channel width to 20 MHz Only and the channel to 6-2.437 GHz.

     

    Turns out my hope was for nothing.  While I'm getting lightning-fast speed now, when my computer went to sleep, it dropped the connection.

     

    This is crazy.

    Looking at /var/log/system.log you can see the NIC itself, NOT ANY ROUTER is the issues....Also, NO VPN client/agent were running at that time...

    Hs,

     

    I hate to say it, but my wifi problem returned after several days too. I went as far as trying a clean install and just running Safari for a bit with no other apps migrated on the new install with the same result. At this point I'm thinking maybe the Airport card or the ribbon cable are the problem. I'm pretty sure I've tried pretty much every solution that anyone has posted with no lasting good result. It's fairly easy to change the Airport card in my model, so I'm going to try that at some point. In the meantime, I've got an Edimax nano USB adapter plugged in and I have to say it works great.

    Based on the widespread problems and that so many different fixes seem to work for some people, I think there's some incompatibility between certain Broadcom cards (Airport) and certain motherboards. I hate intermittent problems. If it would just outright fail I'd know when it was fixed.

    I gave up and went this route too!  I FINALLY have internet again!!!

    Glad that did it for you, Jony. What finally resolved the actual problem for me was replacing the Airport cable, but that little Edimax adapter was great in the meantime.

    This is still working at 2+ weeks

  • Prebenharder Level 1 (0 points)

    This discusion is exactly my problem. I am from Denmark but in Spain for a longer time. My new and very expensive MBP cannot all the time connect to a router in Spain. I have no control over the router - it is on a campsite and I buy access. I have Iphone and Ipad and buy access asswell.

    The problem is that Iphone and Ipad works with no problem, but me MBP shows full signal but sometimes no internetconnection. In diagnostics it says someting about countrycode and I do not know how to change codes. I have no special skills in Mac but it is painfull to have to close my MBP 2013 Retina 15" and use Ipad.I need badly help
