MacBook connects to this router just fine but seems to Drop it every once in a while, like when checking mail or surfing to a new URL. Cincinnati Bell uses: Zyxel VSG1432-B101 - Router (192.168.0.1) I even tried deleting the 4 preferences.plist per notes osdaily http://osxdaily.com/2015/10/16/fix-wi-fi-problems-mac-os-x-el-capitan/ This somewhat worked but the problem always came back. then I remembered I had an old router so I connected up to it Asus AC1900 (model# RT-AC68P) - Router (192.168.1.1) It's been four days now with no dropouts. Thanks Cincinnati Bell, not! So there’s something different about the MacBook (wi-fi on my iPad and iMac worked just fine on either router) maybe they're using a different chipset, As far as strength, it sees more then my iPad, amazing, where is the antenna?
