    Some good news for me so far. I updated to 10.2.2 this morning and my intermittent WiFi issue may be fixed. I say this because i am getting instant lock on WiFi when I wake my computer. I had grown used to the little WiFi symbol doing a 20-30 second hunt since I first installed Yosemite. I hope all of you with these problems notice the fix.

    P.S. If something else IS broken, please don't tell me. :D

    P.S. P.S. Spoke too soon. A note just popped up telling me my Apple keyboard batteries are low. Yosemite update ate up my keyboard batteries! I know this because i just put in fresh ones last May and its only January. :eek:

    Yosemite ate your keyboard battery? Had a bit to much to drink recently?

    My H600 logitech headset stop working using the USB dongle.
    The Bluetooth way work fine but then the microphone is not supported.

    otherwise everything works

    About 60% of our undergrads run MBPs, so I figure within 24 hours or so we should have some pretty definitive data on 10.10.2.

    When 10.10 was first released out help lines where flooded with wifi issues. User stopped calling cause the got used to the complete lack or reliability.

    10.10.1 - got some more calls, mostly of the "I thought this was going to fix my wifi issues" variety. Strangely it did also seem to cause some new odd reliability issues for some of our Ethernet users (many centered on DNS problems)

    10.10.2 - I hope the ghost of SJ has been cracking the whip at Cupertino and expecting perfection from their SW folks.... this is getting old...

    Me I'm holding off for 24 hours.

    No WiFi issues so far with OS X 10.10.2 on my Quad-Core Mac Mini 2012.
    But it's of course too early to judge.

    It's as always a complete fresh installation without tools like WifriedX.
    However I have disabled the aps and systemstats demons.

    The additional development time seemingly has paid off. A lot of visual issues have been fixed. The system log also is less filled with absurd messages.

    Seemed much better this morning but was only using it for 20-30 mins. Connected to wi-fi almost instantly though, much quicker than before. I only bought my first macbook pro in November and I'm loving it except this really annoying dropped wi-fi

    Same here with all three...not noticing any issues with 10.10.2, actually.

    Your humour detection feature is clearly broken.

    ----------

    Surely a better approach would be to advise THEM to hold off while YOU test? Even if the devices aren't yours that would be a better way to approach it?

    Reality detection is clearly broken ;-)

    Most of the folks itchy to apply the latest software are usually our undergrads especially those of the freshman/first year variety (aka teenagers) -- we advise them to do a lot of thing....

    Oh I understand that (I run an ISP network with 60,000 customers), but if even 10% delay it reduces the calls you take....giving you more time.

    I got 24 hours

    before WiFi got squirrely again. Patiently waiting to see windows 10 on some of the sleek Ultrabooks due this spring or fall.

    You're still on Jaguar (10.2.2)? Wow, it's high time you upgraded ;)

    Wifi performance still broken. Pinging a 2012 rMBP from my Pro..

    it gets marginally better if I start it pinging back:

    64 bytes from 192.168.42.4: icmp_seq=32 ttl=64 time=403.086 ms

    64 bytes from 192.168.42.4: icmp_seq=35 ttl=64 time=396.002 ms

    .. and same problems also occur if I use the laptop, lots of delay in some interactive shells etc. I am seriously considering 10.9 downgrade now, although luckily I use my laptop mostly just when my Mac Pro is undergoing repairs.. and it will be again, soon, stupid problem child machine #2.

    How about transmit speed.

    On 5ghz to Airport Extreme my TX speed drops from 848Mbps to 195Mbps within a few seconds. I think it does this when bluetooth is enabled but i can't turn this off on my iMac.

    Before Yosemite, it connected between 800-1000Mbps, same computer, same location and kept that solid high speed link.
