    I just got my new Macbook Pro and I noticed something very strange:

    I am using this dongle to connect my MB Pro to an LG external display:

    If I am using the second USB-C port (the one closer to you) everything seems to work fine.
    If I am using the first port wlan stops working or at least it can't connect to the Internet.

    I am using an airport express since years and everything else is working fine with it.

    Did anyone notice similar problems?

    I really have never experienced something even close.. :eek:

    edit: by the time I noticed that this has to do with how wide the hinge is opened. It it is very opened (more than 45°) this problem appears...
