    I need help on a mac mini 2014 2,8ghz with fusion drive model.

    We update it to 10.10.1 and the problem is there.
    From 5 mbit internet we only got 1 mbit on the different speedometer test.
    It can't find other wifi network except from the closest neighbor, my other mac find 5 networks and this mini only two, somethimes only my network.

    I followed this setup from google:

    The other option turn off WIFI on all other devices. On the Mini, go into System Prefs > Network > Advanced then under Preferred Networks drag your Mini's connection to the top of the list. You can delete all others that are not currently used with the minus button. Turn WIFI off on your Mini with all devices WIFI off, shutdown. Unplug Router and Modem for 2 to 5 mins. Plug in Router and allow boot time of 5 to 15 mins. Then plug in Modem and allow it to boot 5 to 30 mins to reacquire ISP. Then starting with your Mini, log back into WIFI all devices. Hope this helps before you go to the Apple Store. - jndupuis

    That help a lot and i got 5 mbit out of my 5mbit wifi, but the day after i only get 2-3 mbit. And its unstable between 1-3 when i test it. And suddenly i could get 4-5mbit out of it again.

    What could i do with it?
    Really appreciate any tip or help :)

    My first suggestion would be to run the test using wired internet from the router. I get quite variable speeds from my ISP and it's easy to blame he WiFi when its really the service.

    If you don't have lots of competing networks it should not be a channel clash but you might try a different channel

    As its a brand new machine it may have a fault of course.

    Yes, i got 4,5-5mbit now and thats ok, but i don't know why it only show one wifi when it is about 5 other network i can connect.
    The other wifi from the other apartment i got 25mbit on my old iMac and with this new mini i only get 1 mbit from the other network, and all the other networks around here its gone..
    Sometimes it only show my wifi and no other.
