    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for having a glance ! I'm getting a lot of trouble with my wlan (wifi) connection since Yosemite but also on El Capitan now. Signal strength is very good and very stable, but, every 5 minutes or so there is just no more internet ! If I want it back I need to disable the wifi from the top left panel and wait for it to establish the connection which eventually brings internet back again for up to 5min. I just don't get it, wifi is just working flawlessly on my tablet. What's wrong doc ? Thanks in advance for any help, it is greatly appreciated !

    Is your wifi connection down or the Internet?

    thank's for your reply !

    Wifi is always up, it's just the internet who has an issue.

    You tried other devices? If so, is it the same outcome?

    I tried with a windows laptop, no issue. With a android tablet, again no issue. So it's very specific to my mac.

    With Yosemite there was a bug in the OS that caused this. I hand't heard if that same bug is still in El Cap. One thing is for sure, its an issue localized to your Mac as the other devices are not exhibiting the problem.

    I had an issue with my Macs connecting via the 5ghz band. Works fine on 2.4 for me.
