    Sometimes my internet becomes very slow or not working. Toggling WIFI off and on restores the speed. Seems like an other Lion bug.

    Well, I downgraded to Snow Leopard today. And I also installed Windows 7 ( bootcamp).

    Both in Snow Leopard and Windows 7 my Wifi works excellent.

    I'm going to wait for 10.7.5 before trying Lion again.

    Apple includes an App for diagnosing wi-fi troubles with Lion.
    It's in "System:Library:CoreServices:Wi-Fi Diagnostics.app".
    Or, you can run this AppleScript to start it up:
    Code:
    tell application id "com.apple.wifi.diagnostics" to activate
    I picked up 15dB of signal strength by moving my router less than 10 feet.

    I have the same problem. It makes it impossible to use the internet on my computer. I have to toggle wifi on and off every 5 minutes.

    Try changing the channel your wifi is being broadcasted. Pick a channel no other wifi near you is on also.

    I'm not having this problem but this helped me fix a similar issue for a friend and she was using windows 7. Might help.

    6 weeks on SL for me. Not a single wi-fi drop out either. (It's a Lion driver problem that affects a few of us but Apple it seems won't admit it).



    10.8.3 for me. :D
