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

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.
