Question: 10.13 High Sierra Wi-fi issue
Update process from 10.12 to 10.13 on mid-2011 iMac was uneventful. However, an issue is that after a shutdown/restart or waking from sleep, wi-fi won't automatically connect. Turning wifi off/on doesn't change anything. Wireless network SSIDs are hidden, so they don't usually (sometimes do) show up in the network list. After clicking "turn wifi on", when they show up in the network list, choosing one will make the connection. Steps I've taken:
- Reboot wireless router
- Remove existing wifi configuration files from /library/preferences/systemconfiguration, followed by reboot
- Create new profile, reboot, still no automatic connection
- Added a couple of DNS servers (22.214.171.124 and .4 for now). This didn't change anything
- For the first time in forever, did an SMC reset, which didn't change anything
There were no wifi issues with Sierra 10.12, so this is new.
Open to any ideas. TIA!
