A few days ago I have finally decided to upgrade from Lion to Mavericks. Everything is working as it should but my wi-fi. My Internet connection is freezes up and stalls and it's very annoying. I have tried different workarounds including the open DNS, but that did not help. Wi-Fi on other devices is very stable. My rougher is AirPort Extreme. Any ideas of how to fix this permanently?

The only thing I notice is that my Wi-Fi connection is lost after sleep. Normally I opened the lid, typed in password and had instant connection. Now it takes 10-20 seconds.

I also experience the slow to reconnect to my wifi

another problem is that my imac loses its ip address after sleep and it tries to connect with a taken address

and i have to turn off wifi/forget network/ or wait till it dchp a new ip address 1 number up from the one it wants to connect with

10.9.2 made this worse

Same here.

The funny thing is that my rMBP almost always tries to grab the IP that my iPhone has. I can make the problem go away most of the time by turning off Wifi on my phone.
