    Hi all,

    Today my Macbook Pro acts weird. I am having problems getting my mbp on the internet. I've searched and tried mostly everything i know of, but couldn't find a solution.

    My router is fine... as my phones and other laptops act normally on the same network. However ONLY my mbp is having issue, when it is on the same network , it connects but it wont load anything , if it does its painfully slow.

    Ive tried to connect my mbp to my iphone hotspot and it works perfectly.

    so i am now out of tricks, anyone can help?

    Thanks

    Try deleting the below folder, actually move it to the desktop first because you can put it back if it does not work.
    After you moved it restart, does it make it better, all network related setting are reset after a restart.

    /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration

    Sounds like a hardware issue...Take it in at least to get them to have a look see.

    Sorry to say , but I can connect to my iPhones hotspot, how can that be a hard wear issue, If anything I'm guessing is there's a confusion with the router.

    Try re-booting ( power off) your modem / router and see if that helps. You could create a new connection for the Mac in system preferences / network as well.

    Run Apple Hardware Test to see if there's any HW issues, do so by holding the D key at startup and do an extended test.
    If this comes out clean you could try to install OS X on a USB stick (min. 8 GB) and see if the issue is there as well when you boot from it.

    Hardware test came out fine.

    Fixed by changing the channel , question is how long will this last.

    Several hours I think.
    It could be a bug in OS X, it's not the first time people complain about wifi issues.

    I have a problem with my home network. I have the same issues when I connect to the 5GHz radio, but its fine when I connect to 2.4 GHz. I have a new airport extreme which I find funny. All other networks I connect to are fine.
