Macbook will regularly lose internet access until I disconnect and reconnect to wifi.

    Macbook Pro (Retina 15" late '13) running OS X 10.11.3

    This happens only on my laptop, only on wifi, across various wifi networks.

    My laptop never loses connection to the router, but access to the internet will randomly stop. If I turn the wi-fi off and the on again, I have internet access until it happens again 10 minutes later.

    Router is some Sagemcom one bundled with my broadband package.

    I have this problem with my mac mini over ethernet.

    I have to physically unplug the cable to reestablish the internet.

    Ok that seems to have worked. At least haven't had the problem for an hour (but my charger just drew its final breath and it'll be a few days before I get a new one and can be completely sure)
    At any rate, thanks mate
