    Have you tried deleting and re-creating a new wifi connection?


    System Preferences>Network, select the Wifi network on the left and click on the 'minus' key to delete it (you may need to input your admin password to allow this). Apply the changes.

    Still in Network Preferences, click on the 'plus' sign to add a new network, select Wifi and let it create a new network. Try re-connecting your computer to this new network.


    If that doesn't help, try creating a 'new location':

    Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store.

    Back up all data on the internal drive(s) before you hand over your computer to anyone. If privacy is a concern, erase the data partition(s) with the option to write zeros* (do this only if you have at least two complete, independent backups, and you know how to restore to an empty drive from any of them.) Don’t erase the recovery partition, if present.

    Keeping your confidential data secure during hardware repair

    *An SSD doesn't need to be zeroed.
