In all seriousness, have you contacted AppleCare so they know your particular configuration details and can try and reproduce your precise issue?
Apple's engineers are very good, but they're not psychic, and if you're still having issues they need to know that; it's very likely they are troubleshooting what configurations they can.
While I don't disagree with what you have said because not everyone's problem is the same.
I am beginning to wonder what may be going on here.
I am starting to think it has something to do with particular wifi cards.
As I mentioned I did a full erase and install. I though the wifi problem was gone but then last night, after waking, I could not reconnect without having to turn wifi of and then on again.
I have thought about calling Apple but considering I work in IT and have diagnosed many problems before, well..
Plus with a clean install I am even more unsure as to what anyone at AppleCare could do.
I have also noticed problems with some iMacs connecting to a wireless network we have where I work. It's not the same problem, most likely, because when I connect them via ethernet there is no problem. But some iMacs do fail when trying to connect to the router and others have no problem. One of these iMacs I also did a fresh install on.
Leading me to think it may be the wifi card version in this instance as well.
A good point to make but the problem can be getting through on the phone.
It's now about 7 days since I installed the upgrade (10.7.1). Like many here I thought the problems had gone, they have to an extent and seem to come back intermittently. Having got Time Capsule to work at last (it would not under 10.7.0) yesterday the computer did not recognise it, said there was a new Time Capsule with default settings to set up. I did that and it's worked OK since. On the other hand Time Capsule does not knock out my WiFi now. With 10.7.1 that seems to have worked consistently well since I installed it. Occassionaly the iMac goes to sleep and immediately wakes up, not as often now but I am not convinced that is now a "Lion" problem and may be something to do with how I am set up.
The remaining problem that remains, whether it's a network one or not I don't know, is that iCal on the iMac does not sync. Others it seems have the same issue. It works fine for my iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
Think some progress though has been made with 10.7.1. A shame these basic issues were there in the first place on the release of Lion.
I'm running 2 Mac Book Pros both new, but pre Lion preinstalled versions. After upgrading to Lion 10.7.1 the problem of not reconnecting after sleep was not resolved. Somewhere on the community I read this.
1. Open System preferences.
2. Open User and Groups.
3. Open Login tab
4 Against Itunes helper you will find a yellow triangle.
5 Deselect that item.
I now find that my internet connection is avaiable immediatley from sleep, each time. Problem solved.
ATTENTION Fellow Frustrated Lion Users: I just got off the phone with U.S. Apple Support two minutes ago. The Rep said that indeed Apple is aware of the loss of Internet connection and the automatic immediate wake from sleep. He said the problem as the Apple Engineers see it is that instead of Lion putting JUST the monitor and harddrive to sleep as it should, Lion is instead put almost all Sytem Functions to sleep as if you had temporarily turned off the computer.
A fix is almost finished and will soon be available as a "Software Update."
Hang in there guys ;-)
Thank you for that update, very much appreciated!
When the software update arrives can people please update this thread with their findings and experiences? I've had to resort back to Snow Leopard due to time critical work and couldn't keep resetting my connections.
Please remember to update the thread!
For those of you who don't mind running pre-release software, who aren't developers but are desperate to have this issue fixed, then it might be worth signing up the Apple's seed program.
However, I'm optimistic that this will be fixed in a future Lion release ;-)
Note that the odds of your problem being fixed in a future Lion release go down if you haven't contacted AppleCare, that's why I urge people having issues to do so.
It's only in that way that commonalities will be revealed to Apple's engineers.
