    M1 MBP Wireless Specs

    Are the wireless specs for the new MacBook Pros listed anywhere? Are they good? I am trying to get my wife to upgrade from her current computer due to wonky wireless issues. How does this computer compare to the new MBP?

    No connectivity after wake

    Since upgrading my router (it's my ISP's standard, nothing fancy), every time I open my MBP's lid, I can see it connected to my Wi-Fi, but there's no internet access.
