I've seen similar issues posted on this but not exactly the issue I'm having and I cannot find a resolution.  At times, usually after I wake up my mid 2009 MBP, wifi will stall (stuck on Connecting or Resolving Host) and eventually timeout thinking there is no connection.  I'll just reload the page and eventually, it'll come right back up.  When this first started, I blamed it on my internet provider and/or router, but while it was hanging one time, I checked other devices using the network and they were fine.  Sometimes restarting my MBP resolves it for a while, sometimes it doesn't.  I've added a new location in network settings as one other post recommended, but that didn't seem to fix it.  I realized this really only started occuring after my upgrade to OS Mavericks.  Sometimes this happens just every now and then, sometimes it happens all day (about every 10 - 15 min).....its really getting annoying.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    Hi autennisgrl,

     

    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.

     

    You may find these troubleshooting steps helpful if your MacBook Pro is not connecting to your Wi-Fi network after it wakes from sleep:

    After restarting or waking from sleep, my computer might not connect to the Internet

    Use these steps if your computer does not automatically connect to your desired Wi-Fi network.

    1. Check your TCP/IP settings in the Network pane of the System Preferences. Click the "Renew DHCP lease" button

    1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
    2. Choose Network from the View menu.
    3. Select Wi-Fi, then click the Advanced button in the lower-left hand corner of the screen.
    4. Click the TCP/IP tab from the top of the screen.
    5. Click the "Renew DHCP lease" button.
    2. Select the Wi-Fi tab and view your Preferred Networks list.
    1. Select each network and click the minus sign to remove those networks from your Preferred Networks list.
    2. Click OK and close the Network preferences.
    3. Remove your stored network passwords using the Keychain Access Utility.
    1. Open Keychain Access from /Applications/Utilities.
    2. Remove your AirPort network passwords from the login keychain: Select the "login" keychain from the Keychain sidebar. Click the "Kind" column to order the list of keychain items by their type. Remove all entries of the kind: "AirPort network password".
    3. Remove your AirPort network passwords from the System keychain: Select the "System" keychain from the Keychain sidebar. Click the "Kind" column to order the list of keychain items by their type. Remove all entries of the kind: "AirPort network password".

      Note: The above steps will remove your Wi-Fi network passwords. If you do not know them, or if your network does not use passwords to restrict access, you should contact your network administrator.

    4. Restart your computer.

    5. Join your Wi-Fi network. You will need to enter your password for your network again if it requires one.
