    I haven't noticed any problems. Which computer do you have? Is it an Apple or third-party Wi-Fi network?

    I'm not seeing this either nor during testing of Mavericks in beta.

    Could be a coincidental moving in of a neighbor using your WIFI channel. Cleanup your unused favorite networks.

    I have the same problem. When I close my MBA and then open for use it, wifi doesn't work properly. Only works if I turn off and enable wifi from panel.

    Anybody can help us?

    Thanks

    is your MBA also a 2013? I have a 2011 and am not experiencing any of these issues. Perhaps Apple will need to do a firmware update. I would head over to the Apple forums to see if there are consistent reports of issues with your model.

    Yes, it is. I bought on July.
    I think the performance was better with Mountain Lion because, besides the wifi problem, the battery duration was better. It had between 9 and 12 hours of battery life and now I only have 8 hours .
    I don't know if I have to wait a few days before draw conclusions about it, but I'm not entirely happy with this version. I hope in a few days I can change my point of view.

    Thanks
