    Hi All, searching the forums and the internet I couldn't find anything, so I will post here, before I call Apple. When I have my mac book hooked up to my WD External Hard Drive, I will lose my WiFi Connection. They war I normally have everything connected is through a non powered usb 3.0 hub with my printer, WD external Drive, and one of my samsung DVD drives usb ports in the hub, and the other usb port for the DVD drive directly into the MBA. It is driving me crazy. Any help or thoughts would be very welcome. Thanks!

    I seem to recall seeing threads with issues where USB 3.0 devices/cables/hubs messing with wi-fi signals... no details that I remember though.

    Just buy the latest Airport Extreme Base Station / Time Capsule and ONLY connect to 5 GHz band and NEVER connect to the 2.4 GHz band. Your WiFi issue will be 100% solved guaranteed!
