My Mac keeps dropping wifi connection, if I run diagnostics it resets it no problem.

Anyone know of a fix? RP

Tried changing channel on the router?

  • interference from neighbours using same channel is often the cause of drop outs

Mmmm, I don't get the problem on my Windows 7 Laptop.

The message says the Network has been reset.

Something one of my MAC fiends advise is:

SYSTEM PREF>NETWORK>AIRPORT>ADVANCED>PROXIES and delete everything in the Bypass Proxie Settings for these hosts and domains.

Thanks for that there was just one entry which I have deleted. I will see how it goes.

Strange I have just had a wifi update, I will see if it makes any difference.
