    Every time I open my MBP the past few months, it takes about 15 seconds to get the wifi working again. It's not disconnected - it shows connected, it just won't go to any sites. It's just like it's on a huge delay.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I'm going to try to turn off the power saving feature of turning off the hard disks "when possible"

    If you create a new user and open a session for this user, does the problem persist ?

    I too have noticed this same exact issue on a 2016 model, but only when I have a USB C hub plugged in. Now on my 2017 model it works flawlessly every time I open my laptop.

    Do you have any USB devices plugged in using either of the 3.1 standards? (even the charging cord, if it isn't the 2.0 OEM)

    Are you using 2.4ghz wifi? It could be interference. Try using 5ghz.

    Cordless phones, BT devices, and microwaves could also interfere with 2.4ghz wifi.

    I don't have anything plugged in. I have both 2.4ghz and 5ghz, neither changes it.

    Is your modem. Get a better router. I'm experience this at my home Motorola modem+router from spectrum. Then I tried it at my working wifi of Netgear R7000 work like charm. None drop at 5 days connected. Then I bought myself a netgear router hooked up at my home too. Boom, no more disconnect.

    It’s not the router. I too, have the same problem. Except it’s at home, work, and other places. I also have a R7000.

    I've had issues like that in the past. I found that if I changed my DNS settings to open DNS [208.67.222.222 or 208.67.220.220] or Google DNS [8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4] I didn't tend to have that lag on wake-up. YMMV.

    Maybe just my case. the reason i'm suspected my modem is because i exchange another macbook but the wifi not working everytime wake up still persist and at that point made me wonder that is my macbook problem . so i tried at at work wifi and everything fined, which made me bought a router for myself at home. already 3 month using none drop off or wifi connected which no connection. i'm strongly believed got to be the modem or router setup your there. if you still in return period will get another macbook for try like me to make sure is your modem or the mac problem.

    That makes sense...

    In my case, I can follow some of the tutorials for deleting some wifi files and rebooting, and it seems to “fix it” for a month or so...and then kicks back up. I’ve experienced this with a 2015 Mac Pro, 2015 12” MacBook, and my 2016 TB MBP. When I think it’s fixed, it fails me again!

    Totally agreed. My old MacBook Pro 2013 did the same. OS X just picky on router and modem. This is not new problem for MacBook.

    I had the same problem and didn't expect much to change when updating MacOS, but it actually did!

    Now on MacOS High Sierra WiFi is actually super fast again. No high pings anymore. No 5-10 second packetloss while connected. I'll give it a few more days to see if it stays like this, but after a few hours it still works just great.

    Feels like I finally have the fast macbook I was looking for since buying it. I highly recommend updating.
