    This issue has never been resolved. Still an issue. I highly doubt since it has been years that apple wil ever fix this issue, they will just crank out newer versions of the hardware (likely all have the same issue unless they upgrade the wifi chip)

    I ask because of the current issue with the MBA not waking up from sleep mode issue.  It is only similar on the basis that Apple has refused to acknowledge the severity of the WiFi issue, and is only now acknowledging the sleep issue.  The claim on that thread is that Apple has finally acknowledged it because a Facebook thread started on it, and they can't delete those like they delete these.  I don't know if it is true, but there it is.  So, if really annoyed, start a facebook page on it (or some other social media they don't control).

    I called support and the first line admitted there have been people experiencing problems. I'm on hold for a 2nd tier support person now. We tried deleting the systemconfiguration folder, doing the 4 finger salute when the machine was off to reset something or other, and removing all the wifi networks.


    The problem is fixed by pinging 5 times a second, but that seems excessive to say the least. He agreed so I'm on hold. We will see what happens from here.

    Hi des325,

    I don't seem to have a problem with Wifi connection anymore.  I watched a TV show on demand last night and there wasn't much buffering either.


    So far, the fix I detailed above seems to be working.

    Just wanted to say that I have had severe random latency issues on my Macbook Air right up until the time I disabled power nap on both mains and battery power, not sure if that will help you guys. I hope Apple patch the issue soon but until then for me good wifi performance is far more preferable than having it check my emails while I'm away. Others have had success disabling Bluetooth but mine appears happy with Bluetooth on.

    I tried many of these solutions for the MacBook Air, as it would be continuously "Looking for Network" after waking up. The solution that worked for me was:


    System Preferences

    Energy Saver

    and then clear the box: "Enable Power Nap when plugged into a power adapter"


    that seemed to stop the endless searching, at least for now!

    I have been trying to resolve an inconsistent ping time issue with the new macbook air. This causes the airbook to disconnect from the wireless network. The ping times to the router will be from 1ms to 120ms.  I duplicated this with another new macbook air and when I tried an old mackbook air 2012 model it responed correctly with 1-2 ms ping times. I have opened a case with Apple support about 45 days ago but no solution.  It has to be a wireless driver / hardware issue but no one at apple will admit this. Apple support sent the case to their senior engineers.  I was told I may have to live with it. Not Fun!!!

    I have had my dropped connection issues for 2 years and initially assumed it was the internet connection that kept dropping.Then out of warranty.Have tried just about every trick on this forum,none of which help.Bought a £3/$5 usb adapter on ebay,the tiny ones half a centimetre thick.Since then NO problems.This sadly proves the fault is with the laptop and Apple turning a blind eye to such an inherent problem is unfair to say the least.

    Buy the USB,it will save you hours of frustration.

  • Cheddar30 Level 1 Level 1



    That's the headline; here are details: Turning off bluetooth solved by "slowed down" connection speed. BT also caused crappy connection for AirPlay. I also reordered “Set Service Order” to have wifi first, ahead of both of the BT settings, in the System Prefs for Network. After all that, I was able to turn BT back on and I have maintained my fast download connection!! (Still have to see if AirPlay is now seamless without stuttering...)


    Got the idea from this:


    Hope this works for some other folks as well!



  • 81TIGER04 Level 1 Level 1

    My wife is having this problem on her MBA. Every time her MBA enters out of “Sleep” mode, it has trouble automatically connecting to our network. Even when she manually attempts to get a connection, it takes several tries before she is successful. Her problem is starting to become my problem. Please help!

  • muskabo Level 1 Level 1

    its just bad. you pay good many for a computer and the WLAN just doesnt work, its like having a 2 metres cable connection. Too Bad


    Wonder if apple doesnt care or is just not able to fix this.... I am going to store. wonder what they can tell...

  • des325 Level 1 Level 1

    Most of us can tell you what they will say.  They will act like you are the only one with the problem, do a bunch of resets, maybe reinstall your O/S, etc.  Their main goal is to have you leave and eventually give up.  Worst of all, they won't even be embarrassed about it.  I know I sound cynical, but it has been my experience with all of the problems I have had.  (sleep issue, WiFi, camera).

  • muskabo Level 1 Level 1

    i will give it try. They really need to do something about. I mean, I pay good money for the computer and for that i expect it to work flawlessly. Otherwise i dont need to buy an apple computer anymore... whatever. Its not a tiny scratch out of the box, there is a major wlan issue. Our whole central station is filled with huge advertising for apple since months, they should spend some more money on customer satisfaction. I am really looking forward for the appointment in the store. They need to come up with something!


    take a look at this:
