    Does anyone else experience that their Wi-Fi connection drops out for a few seconds once in a while? I did not have this issue with Yosemite. The speed is fine but then suddenly the Wi-Fi connection drops out for 10-15 seconds (sometimes a bite more) and then it works again.

    Any suggestions? Is it just a bug that will be ironed out in an update?

    Wifi working great for me. Only issue I'm having is downloading apps from the Mac App store & the iOS app store slower than paint drying on the wall.

    No issue on my iMac with Yousee - Wifi is stabile.

    But if....or when I encounter a slow or weak signal I usually restart my router.
    Simply pulling the power plug for approximately one minute and when it reconnects everything is fine and I forget it even happened.

    Well...it is not like the signal is just slow or weak - it simply does not work for 10-20 seconds. After that it works perfectly (and fast) again. Hmm. Will try to restart the router, but I don't think it will fix it.

    If not you might consider a clean install.

    I have only done this once, mainly to get rit of downloaded programs I didn't use, since I don't want to download Appcleaner or similar.
