    When I "wake" my Macbook Pro i7 2.2ghz from sleep, its takes like 30 seconds for Mac to connect to my network. (clicking my network or any other network does nothing.) Prior to loading Lion, as soon as I opened my Macbook, my wifi connection would already be connected.

    I've read about wifi issues dropping connection (which I am not) but haven't read anything about waking from sleep.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    No, I'm having my MBP wake up when connected via wired connection instead... Not sure if it has something to do with the router I'm using being a time capsule or not, but really, it shouldn't do this.

    It's also not going back to sleep, ever, so it sits there for hours doing nothing except draining the battery in my mouse and letting time machine make useless backups of multiple megabytes per hour on files that haven't changed (because I've been sleeping, or out of the house, or otherwise not used the computer at all...)

    Are you using time machine at all?

    Yes, I am. Has the newest firmware. Reset still does the same thing.

    I also just noticed my my Macbook is connecting at 802.11G and not "N" I have "3" networks running. Normal, 5Ghz and a Guest Network. Both the 5Ghz and Guest connect to the "N" but the "normal" network connects at "G." Not that it really matters at all since I'm always on my 5Ghz.

    I have the same issue with my 2010 iMac waking from sleep.
    Takes about 15 - 20 seconds to get re-connected.

    I have the same issue. Sometimes it's quicker for me to open up the list of available networks. For some reason manually selecting it works quicker than waiting for it to do it automatically (if it doesn't just connect right off the bat).

    I am having this issue as well. OS X will report I still have a valid IP address and that I've reconnected to the school's 802.1x WiFi network, yet I'm not connected at all. I have to disconnect and reconnect to the network.

    There are many threads about this, so its not just two people. My first get i5 does not work after waking from sleep. If I turn off WiFi and turn it back on it will work until it sleeps again.

    Same problem here, on a late 2008 MacBook 2.2Ghz.

    It takes over a minute to reconnect automatically from sleep. Has only started happening with Lion (which was a clean install).

    Yep. Have the same issue. Funny thing is though that it just started, wasn't like this the first couple of days when I installed Lion.

    Having the issue you mentioned, as well as some other major wifi issues.

    I bring my air on the road with me, and am having major issues connecting to networks. Not only that, but I can't even turn the wifi off and turn back on, it freezes up the computer. A computer mind you, that I just purchased last week.

    VERY frustrating, seeings how the air was for business on the road.
