    If Apple is saying "NO" to us, by "NOT" recognizing that Wi-fi problem and consequently by "NOT" finding a solution, we also should say "NO" to Apple, by "NOT" supporting their products and by "NOT" buying their products. Say a big "NO" to Apple !!!

    My son is using Windows 8 beta version. Wi-fi works perfectly.

    Oh I should mention, there was one poster who mentioned something along the lines of "why should we modify the settings because the mac is having issues; it'll affect other computers". Well, maybe yes, maybe no. We have the mid 2011 model 27'' iMac and a 2008 Acer laptop. Through all this, the Acer was fine. After changing to only trasmitting the G signal, both computer still access the wifi just fine. And The F was a typo.. I meant B. There's B, N or G, ... no F.

    I'll just throw in that the home sharing on this model stinks. That's a whole different thread.. but my 2 cents.. I run OSX 10.7.2 with vmware fusion for windows 7. There's a few applications that require windows for work, so this allows me to have 2 terminals.. but really only 1 piece of hardware to maintain. Long long story short.. I could share out my desktop, my documents, and one or two other places, but anytime I wanted to map one of my partitions so that both my mac and windows could navigate to them in relatively the same path, I ran into constant problems. One day sharing worked, the next it didn't, one time unchecking sharing back and forth worked, another time it didn't. We ended up having to make more windows components the "dominant" ones, sharing out the drives through windows.. then having mac locate and map them. Big headache. If AFP just worked right.. I wouldn't have had to remap everything through windows first, then mac, ust to open an Acess DB file (beause it thought it was on a network share.. when it was really local).

    I think people are more pointing out that it's ridiculous to have to tailor your network to one computer/OS, especially when you have many other devices working completely fine on the network.   I have never had a problem with any other device on this network (from phones to media players to computers).  Either my own devices, or people using my network when they are over.

    Dear Carlo,

     

    I'm not foolish. I "was" fooled when I believed in Apple. I "was" fooled when I bought a MacBook pro and bought Lion. I "was" fooled when the wi-fi didn't work. Now, I have sold the MacBook pro and will not be fooled again.

    Carlo,

     

    I think I speak from the majority of posters in this thread when I say that your credibility has absolutely been shot.

     

    You constantly blame the consumer and spout off nonsense on how the consumer should adapt.

     

    NO ONE BELIEVES THIS. The holier than thou attitude is so out of control, it's really just a poor attempt at humor when you post criticism of every person who gets angry at Apple. PC had Vista, Apple has Lion, that's just the way it is. By the way, you're and your are very different words. Again, credibility lost. The "fixes" that have actually worked for many of the people in this forum either a) cost money b) cost an INCREDIBLE amount of time or c) totally stunted the development of the network. When EVERY DEVICE, Apple or PC, phone and non-phone, worked prior to this OS, THAT is a problem.

     

    Are you going to tell home users to buy a new modem or tell enterprise users to work around Apple's problem? That is absolutely laughable. Stop getting on your high horse when you can't offer anything but propaganda about how all of us should bend over for Apple and just deal with their shortcomings. I like and use both PC and Mac, but stop this BS of how we need to deal with this garbage. Enough.

     

    If you want to post something next, let's try something less condescending, and something that works for everyone. If you can't do that, it's Apple's issue. Have fun with that...

     

    EVERY FIX is something that doesn't work for everyone, costs money or severly cripples network infrastructure. The more you say it isn't Apple's problem, the less people want to listen to what you have to say.

    And this is from a person who is responsible for fixing the network for others at a university?

    BenHart67 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This in no way relates to what I posted.

     

    I offered a fix, albeit one that still costs the consumer money. I don't talk down to anyone but you. If you would just finally admit this was an Apple problem, I think people would take you more seriously. There are currently hundreds, maybe thousands of people in this thread with problems with Lion, you can't deny that.

     

    Bottom line: are you calling them all stupid? If that's the case, just say so, we'll all respect you more for it.

    Don't change my words.

    Your suggesttion... was a side step.

  • 2,024. Re: Lion WiFi Connection Problem
    BenHart67 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    LOL. So are EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOURS!

     

    You are in the overwhelming minority of people who truly believe Apple doesn't have a problem on their hands. The more you spout off this nonsense blaming the consumer, the more you divide people between Apple and PC.

     

    And seriously, everything you've offered since I've been a member of this thread have all been workarounds and time-consuming "fixes" that cripple an otherwise advanced network. I'm totally fine with offering help, but don't turn a blind eye to a problem that the world is not responsible for fixing. It is Apple's problem. They need to fix it, especially if their other OSs have been rock solid recently.
