    I've read a few threads on here regarding some people with WiFi issues running 10.8.2/rMBP's. I've had similar issues in the past but just this morning, my rMBP was plugged into my tv, I woke it up using the wireless keyboard/trackpad I have but my internet wouldn't fire up. I reset, opened the lid, did display mirroring, turned my wifi on and off and still nothing. Close the lid, tried again, still wouldn't connect.

    I even waited a good 20 minutes to see what would happen. Nothing.

    But as soon as I unplugged it from the HDMI and power it was plugged into and opened the lid, the wifi was working..

    Has anyone else had issues with wifi while plugged into another display?

    (The only other thing I had plugged in was an external Oyen Digital harddrive)

    I have some issues with Wifi in clamshell mode, but I assumed it was because the aluminium was blocking the signal, however I'm not sure where the Wifi antennae are.

    I'm using a cMBP 13".
