    @ Apple: wifi connection stil randomly drop as written on first post, even if wifi icon show connection, please say something!

    The Maverick update won't address the ping latancy on 2013 Macbooks.

    Have you already tried?

    My Apple experience is going from bad to worse. As I posted earlier in this huge thread, I've found it impossible to open web pages on my MBAir when I've been at conference centres and hotels doing presentations. To try to circumvent this, I had hoped to use my Airport Expresses (I have two, a mark 1 and a mark 2) to create a local network that my MBA could see. Clever, no? No.


    Last Saturday, even this was thwarted: my MBA could see my APE-created network OK, but the APE itself couldn't get an IP or DNS from the attached Ethernet cable connection. Brilliant.


    So, APEs can't get me a "cabled" signal for the creation of my own wireless network. What am I supposed to do now? Rewire and/or reconfigure every conference centre I have to work in so that my MBA and APEs can get a signal?!?


    As I said, brilliant.


    I'd prefer Apple to think of just ONE new colour for the next iPhone, and devote the rest of their creative ingenuity and tech wizardry to fixing this wireless garbage.


    PS Suggestion for colour: puce. So that's sorted. Now fix the wireless. Thanks.

    I did the driver rollback a few days ago which fixed my latency issue on Mountain Lion.


    I have now updated to Mavericks and latency still looks good. I have checked the driver file and it looks as if it has copied a new one and I am not having issues as of yet. Will check every now and then to see if it's still working as expected.

    Yeaaaaaaaa! It's fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Mavericks fixed it!!!!!!!!!


    I just installed and it's pinging:

    BTW it looks like a new firmware too:

    However we must be sure that It connects to all networks and that it won't lose connection.


    I couldn't install Mavericks, it says:

    "Can't install os x because a recovery partition can't be created" or something like that, will have to format all...

  • JCC123 Level 1 Level 1 (45 points)

    I'm about to head to an event so I will have a chance to test it out to see if it connects easily to someone elses network. I'm sure it's going to be no problem.

  • nicksuch Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    To highlight @JCC123's comment, it looks like Mavericks ships with driver version


    I've been using the new driver for a few hours now, and have also been experiencing much better wifi connectivity. Will continue to test over the next few days and report back if I notice any shortcomings.

    Haven't posted in a LONG time.  On my 2nd MBA (2013). Never upgraded the software on the second one. Been chugging along. A few ping latency issues on the neighbor's wifi I use, but nothing major. Cruisin' on the airport extremes at the office.


    Updated to mavericks based on these recent posts.  Here's my ping results off this old Netgear Router. Not looking too good:


    --- ping statistics ---

    134 packets transmitted, 133 packets received, 0.7% packet loss

    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 1.180/144.533/1651.594/200.594 ms

    I haven't noticed any glaring issues using Mavericks so far, but my pings are still 1-50ms at random. (MBA 2013 / AirPort AC)

  • Douglas Howe Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Mavericks doesn't fix it (from my point of view).  Just installed Mavericks.  Using the built-in wifi on my 2013 MBA, I get 24ms ping, 2.54 Mbps download and 1.3 Mbps upload.  Switched back to the Iogear wifi and tested immediately.  Got:  11 ms ping, 35 Mbps download, 5.97 Mbps upload.  Pretty much the same results I got under Mountain Lion.  Im using to test wifi because I'm less interested in ping and more interested in download speed.  As I've found out, they aren't well correlated.
