I have a problem which I've faced for about 3 years and it's driving me crazy!
My Wi-Fi is connected and has very good signal but after a few minutes (sometimes few hours, hard to say) I have no internet. YouTube starts spinning, any open sites just stop reacting, everything is offline even though Wi-Fi is still connected.
To fix it, I "turn off Wi-Fi" and turn it on again. And I repeat this 50 times per day.
I'm not even sure if this is a problem with the MacBook.
I currently have a 2017 MBP 13", basic model. I also have another 2017 MBP 13, 2015 MBP 15" and 2015 MBP 13".
I also have a PC which is connected via USB external Wi-Fi card (some cheap TPLINK) and I don't think it's that bad. It's also 2.4ghz
I have a few routers with included AP from my provider, I recently changed to Unify Lite and nothing helped. I have 2 separated Wi-Fi, 2.4ghz and 5hz (currently 40mhz band and I've tried different configs).
What I've noticed:
- when I go to another room, also closer to the AP, it's stable
- When I turn off Bluetooth, it seems to be better - but I don't get it since 5GHZ shouldn't conflict with 2.4GHZ Bluetooth. I have speakers, magic mouse and magic keyboard connected (v2)
- In my office, I see this problem but not that often - also MM and MK connected via Bluetooth
- My girl's MBP2015 15" and MBP2017 15" don't cause problems but she works from a different room.
- Occasionally I do these tips with cleaning PRAM etc and it seems to work for few hours, but later it's the same.
Anyway, I know that the answer could be:
- don't use Bluetooth anymore lol
- change your room lol
I'm actually being driven crazy and I want to know WHY I have this problem so I can solve it.
What diagnostics should I run?
