    I've received my 2016 MacBook Pro 15 yesterday. Somehow I have some issues with my WiFi. After 10 to 15 Minutes it breaks down. The Wifi Logo says that I am still connected and I still have an IP address assigned but I can't ping my Gateway or reach any device in my Network or the Internet. Turning it off and on again solves the Problem for 10-15 Minutes. I don't have that Problems with my USB-C Network Card (from Aukey). I use an AVM Fritz WiFi Access Point that bridges to my AVM Router. This works like a charm for all other devices. I even get 80-90 MB (yes Megabyte) per second via WiFi to my NAS (... that is directly connected to the Access Point)

    Dose anybody els have connected interruptions via WiFi with the new MacBooks or is it just me?

    Same here on a new (and freshly setup) 15" 2016 MBP.

    I remember seeing the same thing on my old 2012 machine at some point and following these steps solved it then:
    • Disable WiFi
    • Open Finder
    • Press Cmd+Shft+G to go to the folder /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/
    • Delete (or move) the following files:
      • NetworkInterfaces.plist
      • preferences.plist
    • Restart your computer
    • Re-enable WiFi

    I just tried it on the new machine but it's too early to tell.

    I have issues with wifi under Bootcamp Windows 10.
    It is dropping connection and slowing down very badly.
    No issues under MacOS.
    Never had that problem with iMac 27" 2013 model.
