    hello well first of all i love apple and all their products they are far superior. Ive recently purchased a macbook pro the reason i went for the macbook was again its the best on the market and i didn't mind paying a hell of a lot more for a mac!!!

    However i have to say i am soon dissapointed that it has the WiFi fault!!! what the hell are they playing at??? this day and age and the laptop can not hold a connection with WiFi ???? why haven't they sorted this fault out!! so frustrated every time I'm on the internet working it drops connection then i have to mess around hopping it will find the connection again... why wasn't i told this by apple before the purchase?

    can anyone help with this ?

    many thanks sam :confused:

    Try these steps.

    1. Turn off your Wi-Fi.

    2. On your Mac open System Preferences->Network pane.

    3. At the top of the Network pane is 'Location' pull-down to "Edit" and add button to make a custom named (like Home, Work, School) Location and do the two saves.

    4. Then in your new custom named Location turn wireless back on and rejoin your wireless Network.
