Recently picked up a new Air, and I’ve noticed my wifi connection is a lot weaker than my 2015 Pro. It’s getting to the point where web pages barely load on the Air while my Pro loads them just fine (connected to the same network at the same time).

Anybody else noticing this? Any fixes? Pretty disappointed about this.

Its up to the router to provide an internet connection to devices. Have you tried another network such as a hotspot to isolate if its the router or mac?

- Have you power cycled the router?
- How many other devices are connected to your network?
- Does your MacBook air have slow internet when connected to another network?

When you have them side by side, can you opt-click the wifi icon and show what they say. You'll see something like this:

And which router are you using?
