    A few days ago I noticed that every time I wake my Mac from sleep it can't connect to my home wifi. When I wake it up I have to reset my router and it connects just fine and stays connected as long as my Mac is awake, but as soon as I close it and open it again it won't connect. More specifically it does say it's connected to my network but there is no internet connection.

    I figured it was a problem with my network but other devices will have a connection when mine doesn't. Could this be an issue with my hardware? Wireless card?

    Known issue with the new rMBPs. No need to reset router just turn your laptop wifi off and on again. Hopefully they'll fix it in a patch. More info: http://tuaw.com/2013/11/18/some-new-retina-macbook-pros-suffering-from-wi-fi-issues/

    Try deleting all your saved Network information and Keychain entries for you wifi network. Then once network preferences are cleaned out, re-add the WiFi network.

    I had similar problems in the past due to the Keychain entry for the saved password somehow getting corrupted.
