I put this explanation and demonstration together to try to explain where the ping latencies are coming from:
"Keeping the MacBook's wireless adapter busy with traffic seems to prevent it from entering a micro-sleep state; This micro-sleep can result in highly variable ping latencies which are often improperly interpreted as a "bad" WiFi connection."
This would also explain why rolling back to a previous driver (as some have suggested) would be a solution - the "Ultra" Power Saving code is relatively new.
I mean this as an interesting demonstration, not as a fix. Maybe it'll get someone thinking. :-)

I don't believe ths is a solution. About 1/2 of my Apple devices were already set to ask to join a network. This happens to me several times a day now. This never happened in the past. I posted an extensive discussion about this here:
This DOES smack of a Microsoft type of problem. Since my wife's iPhone 5 and my iPhone 5 as well as my Macbook pro are over a year old and never had the problem before about a month or 2 ago, I can only conclude that it has something to do with upgrading to OSX Mavericks, my getting an iPad, my upgrade to iOS7 or ??????!?
