    Sorry to hear that... Are you using WiFi or Ethernet?

    No. Sounds like a problem with your modem or router.

    Ok. Do you have any other devices (another computer or a tablet etc) that you can test to see if its your MacBook Pro or your router?

    It doesn't happen right away though. It happens like after 10 hours or 12 hours, then the macbook can't get to internet but when i restart it doesn't have problem reconnecting to internet though via Wifi.

    Yeah i have a Windows desktop which is wired and another Windows desktop which is wireless and uses the Wifi, they don't have problems.

    Does this problem happen only after you sleep the computer? Like, if you sleep it for a while will it not connect to the WiFi when you wake it, only connecting once you restart?

    Are you sure only restarting will fix it? If you sleep the computer then wake it up does it also fix the problem? Because I've had a similar problem where sleeping fixes it...
