I purchased a new modell 2011 MBP on the very first day from our apple store.
At home, sitting directly beside the wireless router I didn´t noticed anything wrong.
I have got beside of the Mac OS a bootcamp Prt. with Windows 7 on it and everythign works fine so far.
Five days after purchased I started traveling on business and at present we are for some weeks in Melbourne. Were having a wireless connection in our appartement and here I have got massiv problems with my connection.
We are having altogether four windows mashines with us, my IPad, my Iphone, another HTC smartphone, and my new Macbook.
All the other devices connecting to our room wireless without problems. The net strengh is not fantastic but the other devices bringing it up to four bars on the windows wireless symbol in the task bar. None of the other computers where ever loosing the connection.
Only my macbook can not make it over three bars and its going on and off. Donwloads fail freuquently because the conection is interrupted more than one times..
In my opinion this problem is even worse on the Windows OS and a bit better but far away from beeing good and acpetable on the Mac Os.
I hope its only a driver issue and there is no hardware problem with the new mashine. Other than this I love the new notebook and I am very satisfied with its performance.
Needed a moment to find my thread...the new structure...if there is any at all left is not very comfy to find your way around her in the support forum, I find....
News from my side....
Back home in Bavaria, back in our 32 MB Net. MacBook does not drop connection not on Bootcamp not on Mac OS Becuase of the strong link. if you look on the wireless symbol everything looks fine.
- Doing the ping test shows same horrible result like everywhere else before. Ping is going up and down, shows tomeouts.
-Downloads are very very slow considering our net speed.
-Streaming absolute NOT possible.
My old Fujitsu T4215 and all the other Wndows Mashines my husband uses in our net are working without any kind of problems...but we know this already, don't we????
