    Anyone know of an issue with MNP 2016 losing wifi after sleep? I just got mine yesterday and periodically usually after sleep, or times of not use the wifi connection shows good and full but things won't load. I turn off wifi and back on and everything is back to normal.

    I have the latest OS installed today.

    Maybe an exchange is needed?

    Thanks

    I had that same issue in the first week of having mine.

    You might give it a week or so to see if it settles in, or try calling Apple support.

    Started noticing the same thing from couple of days. Didn't have that issue when obtained mine (middle of December).

    I used to have that issue once in a while running older OS. Didn't happen often enough to make me want to figure out what the problem was, and it hasn't been happening lately. I doubt it's a serious problem, but do let us know if it resolves.

    Yes. I do. Very annoying
    Have tried various fixes but cant tell if its a mbp16 problem or a sierra problem. (The old mac mini sitting on the same desk connects no problem with reliable speeds)

    Do you have some cheap wifi stuff that came with your cable modem? If so, perhaps just get an Airport Express.
