    Different time -- similar problems. This cure sounds like voodoo but it's worth a try. I cross my fingers.

    It didn't helped me

    Alright, I'm at least 12 hours out of a complete reformat and internet recovery of Mountain Lion. So far, no hang ups. Please see my earlier post concerning format and reinstall (no for real, if you plan to format and reinstall, please see my earlier post).

     

    For Apple: You rollout an $1800 laptop to me with a corrupted OS? Absurd.

    I wonder if I can re-install it over the top.  Download it on another machine, copy it to this one and install it over the top.  Hmmm

  • Hijej Level 1 (0 points)

    You can try downloading it in iSpot or buy/boorow from someone that Thunderbolt <-> Ethernet connector...

     

    Maliath: How's it working?

    So does the new unit not exhibit the same issue anymore ?

  • wifiguru Level 2 (240 points)

    Have you guys tried running Wireless Diagnostics (Option click WiFi Menu Extra and you should see this at the bottom) and then taken a look at the issues it detects ?

  • wifiguru Level 2 (240 points)

    check your router version and upgrade to the latest on this router : Cisco WAP4410N. I remember seeing some other folks complain about issues with this router that went away on a firmware upgrade.

  • gmc74 Level 1 (0 points)

    I didn't see anything when I ran it.  I did the command-option-r on reboot and have 28 minutes left in my reboot.

    When the connection fails and you launch diagnostics it tells you: "Turn on Wi-Fi, join a network, and then choose 'Continue' to run diagnostics." Since you can't turn on the WiFi and join a network it is useless.

  • wifiguru Level 2 (240 points)

    Launch the tool when you are not connected to the network and it should prompt you for next steps. I tried it out and it tells you to attempt to connect to the network and if it fails, proceed and collect logs by hitting Continue.

     

    Just turn WiFi on and then try this. Don't turn WiFi off as thats probbaly why you are seeing the warning that tells you turn WiFI On.

     

    This should save some logs that you can hand off to AppleCare when you call them. If you'd like, upload the file it saves on the Desktop someplace and send me the link and I can take a look and see if I can help. ( or paste the link here and I can take a look )

  • gmc74 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok, I tried installing over the top first, doing a reboot and Command-Option-R

     

    It took about an hour, so far, I haven't had an issue (in 5 minutes) and it downloaded the entire image without a problem.

     

    This installed over the top, so all of my accounts and data is still here. 

     

     

     

    I hope it continues, if it doesn't, I will try a format/install.

  • gmc74 Level 1 (0 points)

    3 hours in, thanks Maliath

  • gmc74 Level 1 (0 points)

    6 hours in, and fail...

  • gmc74 Level 1 (0 points)

    I launched the tool, and it thinks I am connected to wifi (since it shows that I am connected) but it fails to communicate with the router.
