Its just this new macbook pro that does not work. I dont know what to do, i tried everything. I have tried all the normal bullshit stuff to connect my macbook pro when I have problems. I have a newer machine with the thunderbolt usb ports which I hate because now I need an arm full of adaptors. Here is the problem. Black and white. Plain and simple. If I unplug it, it miraculously joins the internet. If it happens to connect while my external hard drive is plugged in, there is almost zero bandwidth but unplug it and it works perfectly.
Is there anybody out there who can provide a solution for this. I paid more than 2. My Mac Book Pro is I connect with my iPad, iPhone and other wifi devices easily and quickly. My MacBookPro however rarely connects when opened. It requires the shut down method and restarting to connect.
Then if I walk away long enough for the window to shut, I loose connectivity again. VERY frustrating. My son has a Mac Book Pro and does not experience this problem. Is this a fixable problem for my or is Apple just trying to get me to upgrade? While at work our network seems to operate fine on my phone and on my MacBook air for the first initial moments while connected. Soon pages are not pulling up at all and the wifi seems to be searching for a connection.
I have to restart the MacBook and it will work again for a short time. Any ideas? The screen would only turn on if I unplugged and replugged in the screen and it also flickered. Solution was to get a direct video cable from the MacBook to the monitor. Works perfectly now. I had the power cable and the backup hard-drive plugged into the 3-way adaptor.
Suddenly, I had all kinds of intermittent problems with the WiFi whilst the desktop Mac on the same desk was fine. Plugged the power cable directly into the MacBook and now it seems to work fine. I have this same problem with my mid MacBook Pro. The problem is so bad that I cannot use it for conferences and it is costing me money. To be honest, this is a design defect that Apple has not addressed. I am now considering an Windows oriented laptop as the MacBook Pro is unusable.
By the way I have tried every recommendation without success. This is intermittent. Any answers? Having the same issue. I have to shut down wifi and restart again to re-establish the connection. I have this same problem.. The wifi says it is working fine.. I did a speed test..
I think it is similar to your issue.. Did you get any responses or figure it out?? I informed apple of this issue and the reason behind it back in , its nothing to do with faulty routers or software its down to how apple products connect to wifi and the fix is to not have the same SSID for 2. Might be the fix! As soon as I switched to my 5G option and turned off the 2G one, things are blazingly fast! This does not address why my pc laptop is running fast, streaming video and audio, etc.
Is it the internal hardware on the mac that is the problem? I have turned off my pc and other devices to eliminate the competition for bandwidth and it makes no difference. This seems to be a problem with the mac not with the router or router signal strength. This macbook cost easily twice what my pc did, making this a frustrating issue. It is a small detail, but a very important one.
Also, I have this problem both at home and at the office. My iPhone is stably connected to UnitedWifi. Four weeks ago, I experienced the same at York University, Canada. Their IT department suggested that some security software probably stood in the way.
Following their advice I disabled McAfee, but the problem persisted. If security-related software is the cause of the problem, what else should I do? Do I have to install something like Malwatebytes? Is it still possible to diagnose the problem of not seeing the network that must be there as I know from my iPhone? I made a discovery on my internet connectivity problems. I have a new Spacegray Macbook Pro — I thought my bad internet connectivity was a problem with our office router or where I was sitting, but I was puzzled that I saw full bar strength.
If I unplugged and moved away from my desk, no problems, router signal seemed super strong… I narrowed my problem down to whenever I was connected to my Thunderbolt monitor. I am still not sure if the problem is the monitor or the Apple adapter. Yeah I have the same exact issue only my monitor is a Benq monitor! I have the same problem!!! Why is it that my iPad and iPhone can connect to wifi units two blocks away when my macbook rolls on and times out connecting to routers in the same room as me?
