Mavericks Drops Wifi when connecting in with VNC

My Macbook Airs drop wifi instantly when I try to connect with VNC. I have enabled Remote Management- Computer Settings- VNC viewers may control screen, and entered my password.

I have also ran

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ VNCAlwaysStartOnConsole -bool true

So that VNC connects to current session.

The crazzy thing is that I did the same thing on a lab of iMacs and everything is working perfectly, but they are wired instead of wireless.
