    Wondered if anyone has this problem,sometimes on my late imac 2012 the wifi cuts out.
    Just logged on now and it was trying to find a connection on start up.
    My iphone has the same trouble sometimes but my ipad connects straight away.
    Not sure if its apples fault or the router modern,any ideas on how i could see if my mac is okay,most of the time it is,but sometimes it loses a connection.

    I have this exactly same problem. Wifi of my Macbook Pro cuts out every now and then, while showing full signal.

    I don't have this problem with my iPhone or iPad. In fact, I can connect to the internet through my other devices at the same time the Macbook Pro can't.

    I have been searching the internet for answers and found out that everybody has the same issue:

    They loose their connection, while OS X shows full bars and the only way to restore it is either wait or turn wifi off & on again.

    :confused::confused:I also have found out that I can restore Macbook Pro connection by grabbing my iPhone as soon as it cuts out and go online.:confused::confused:

    Some people went to the Apple Store, but geniuses only blamed their non-Apple hardware.

    I am truly at a loss.:(

    When posting WiFi problems it would help if you also mentioned your router / model.

    I am using TP-LINK D5D202, which I got directly from my internet provider. I've had it for almost a year now.

    I have tried resetting it and setting it to an unused broadcast channel, but it did not help.

    Disabled bluetooth, set MTU to 1400 in OS X, but no changes.
