I've had several macs before and I know a lot of the laptops suffer from annoying wifi connectivity issues (if you're in a crowded place, you'll often have to mess with the settings in order for you to get a working IP address assigned, and often when you wake them from sleep they take seconds to connect). However, a new issue I've noticed with the rMBP is when you wake it up, it'll take an extra long time to connect to your network, and a few times it's required me to turn off Wifi and turn it back on to get any connection working. Has anyone else noticed this on their rMBP?

I didnt.
Mine works seamlessly, not even a second before wifi is connected.

yes, I've had this a couple times, and it's impossible to replicate. using a non-crowded home network, and it's worked flawlessly in the past.

I haven't had any problems waking mine to date. It finds and connects to the wifi in seconds.

I notice that reconnecting takes 4-5 seconds but I don't have to turn on/off my wifi to connect.

Yes. My Retina does this almost all the time after the machine is put to sleep for more than just a few minutes. It's annoying but I'm not completely sure it is all the Retina's fault...might be my router. :confused:

I was experiencing the same issues today. At home it wouldn't connect after turning wifi on and off but my iMac and iPhone's wifi was working fine. I had to reset the router and then i finally got it connected. It seemed to be working fine and then it did it again later in the day after waking it ....:(

I'm going reset by router and reconfigure wireless settings and see how it works out tomorrow.
