    Hey guys,

    I have a new 13" macbook air and it's my fourth mac, and the first I've had with this little issue.

    When I wake my computer from sleep, it takes a good 20-30 seconds to connect to my home wifi network. My previous Mac's would just connect right away but this seems to take a while. Sometimes it works faster if I just turn off wifi and then turn it back on.

    Is this a known issue with either OS X Lion or the new MacBook Air's? Anyone ever face a similar issue?

    I don't think I'm being too picky or anal about it, since none of my previous Macs behaved like this.

    I think it's a bug with Lion - there have been several Lion threads about internet dropping/not reconnecting after sleep.
    My MBP actually will never re-connect after waking - I always have to do it manually, so your Air is running a bit better than my MBP. :p

    If it's reconnecting but just slow you might want to try some of these ideas:

    Sort of agree with he guy above, but think its more to do with the latest update (10.7.1) as I wasn't facing it until I installed it a few weeks ago.
