I experienced a strange issue.  My 15" rMBP can not connect to a  public wifi router at a ice rink.  It connects but still assigns a self IP so no internet connection.  My iphone 5 can connect and use the wifi without a problem.  I tried two different dates with the same results.  My solution was to use my iPhone 5 as a wifi hotspot (verizon).  It attached fine and was working correctly.  I had to move my seat so I closed my lid and disconnected the hotspot on the phone.  The apple logo didn't shut off immediately on the laptop but I only realized after I had gotten up.  10 minutes later I sit down and open my laptop up again.  It indicates that it rebooted and ready to send off a report to apple. I clean up that mess and setup the tethering again.  This time right after it tethers, my iphone 5 dims and then resets. 


I stopped trying after that.  I did a Google search and looked through Apple's forums and find similar things happening since 2010 and iphone 4 and previous versions of OSx.  This disturbs me that this bug has occured for a couple of years across 3 versions of phones and multiple releases of OSx.




My rMBP is 10.8.4 running Growl, parallels 8.0, alfred, smcfancontrol, system lens


iphone is 6.1.4

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 15" 16GB 512GB SSD
