    Hey guys!

    So, I just started to have a new problem with my wife. The connection will drop almost immediately after attaining the connection to begin with. After turning airport off/on then it will work perfectly for about 30 seconds. Then pages will continuously try to load. Even when all of this is happening, airport still shows a full connection. I tried this on chrome and safari and am still having these problems IN mountain lion. Right now I'm actually typing this on my windows 7 partition and the wifi works flawlessly.

    I honestly don't know what to do seeing as this just started today and it makes using wifi on ML impossible...Anyone had anything similar or know any fixes?

    I can't be sure it will solve the wifi problem you are having, but the procedure described here might be worth a try.

    Good luck.

    Wi-Fi has always had problems since Snow Leopard, especially if you are sharing the ethernet via Wifi (making a hotspot). Before, rebooting will usually break your wi-fi, requiring you to re-enter new wi-fi settings just to connect again (SSID, password, channel, etc). Now, you simply can't connect to the hotspot. You would need to turn off wi-fi and turn it on again (on your mac), then try connecting again from your iOS device. If that doesn't work, you need to AGAIN re-enter new wi-fi settings. This happens constantly. So be prepared to constantly get into a habit of turning off your Wi-Fi and turning it on again, re-enter wi-fi settings. This is a quality control issue. It sometimes work, so they just sweep it under the rug and forget about it release after release after release. I get the feeling it is spaghetti code that they duct taped together and is having trouble fixing.
