    I think "b) they can't figure out how to fix it" is the answer.

    There are also tons of threads like this about iPads randmoly dropping off from WiFi.

    This is becoming an interesting part of 'history'. I can imagine reading a Wikipedia article about this years later.

    Not sure if anyone has tried the update that was mentioned a few pages ago to 10.7.1, but I just did and it fixed all my wireless woes. I was using the ping trick before on my 2010 MBP and it greatly increased my connection, although, bought brand new 2011 yesterday, and just updated, and it's working great. More should try this to see if this is Apple's attempt at making this right.

    installed the fix hours after it was released but still having the same problem..

    Installed 10.7.1, now regular pings seem  better on 2.4ghz on 5Ghz still bad, but even on 2.4GHz file transfer looks pretty bad.

    Has anyone bought a mini-usb wifi dongle to get around this issue?  Buying something like http://www.amazon.com/AirLink101-AWLL5088-Wireless-Ultra-Adapter/dp/B003X26PMO/r ef=pd_sim_e_2 

    may be a lot cheaper and a better solution than trying to buy new routers.  If it workds you would get to use it anywhere too.

    Hi,

     

    What about using a cable whenever possible. with wireless networks you can with a 50Mb / s maximum under good reception conditions "only" get 30Mb/s trougput and it's not much if you have 1000Mb/s wired network where you can theoretically get up to 700Mb / s.

    This does not excuse the wireless network does not work, but I always use ethernet cable whenever possible.

    yeah that's always an option.. although it defeats the purpose of having a laptop and being portable if it's always attached to a cable..

    not to mention puts unnecessary stress on your ethernet port if you're not sitting in a position where the cable has strain relief.

  • PhotoPippi Level 1 Level 1

    When it comes to stress a network so it is more devastating to have "slow" devices that must continually retransmit the data packets and your wireless access point is also connected to the local network so that problems here will also have a efekt on overall performance.

     

    My choice of network wireless / wired depends on the task I need to solve is it á large amounts of data do I always chouse wired network if it is just a little surfing on the Internet that is perfectly fine with wireless, but I still choose wired network if I anyway is close to a fixed wire connection I would rather drive 500MB/s over 30Mb/s.

     

    Sincerely,

    Ib

    Replaced my router (Trendnet TEW639 GR)with a 2TB Time Capsule last night and started wireless backup over night.

     

    Next morning, only 20 GB out of 300 GB has been backed up while my wife's MBP went through all 300 GB backup.

     

    If it was my wife's computer having this wireless issues, it would have been much tougher situation.

     

    So, even after replacing the router, problem persists. There seem to be still a lot of lost packets.

    Why don't you contact Apple and tell them of their moronic status, we are just fellow Apple users, like you.

     

    Here's a link to help you: Send Feedback to Apple

  • yRuS! Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks for the link @Csound1.. just submitted a feedback. Frankly I'm not hopeful about anything changing... only thing that wonders me is, how come Mr.Jobs is happy with such a crappy machine... oh is it because he uses Windows 7?

    I'm happy to help, but I have to add that I have had no issues at all with Lion, sorry your experience has not been the same.

  • yRuS! Level 1 Level 1

    I'm still on Snow Leopard.. actually upgrading to the Lion is the one ******* me off... I tried to download it and everything it gets interrupted due to network loss and the so called Lion resume somehow doesn't work for me may be i shud use a LAN cable to do it..
