    Since I installed Beta 2 I noticed a 50% drop in the WiFi Tx rate.
    I'm on a late 2013 Macbook Pro.
    Anyone else having the same problem?

    I haven't looked at any numbers, but my wifi seems to drop all the time at home now. It wasn't this bad on DP1. I've got a 2012 rMBP - clean install.

    Was with the same problem. Reseted the SMC and now it seems to be solved.

    Haven't noticed much of a difference, it's still the same 130Mbit/s for me on my home connection (100Mbit/s speedtest) if the RSSI is good. Although I haven't tested it with my uni wifi connection where on Mavericks I was getting 230Mbps+ at times on speedtest, wonder what routers they are using, cause that's insane transmiting power... Also makes me wonder why would anyone need 802.11ac if such kind of numbers can be archieved with 802.11a/n

    Yes, for me it's down to 217 MBit from 450 MBit. Over all, my WiFi is a lot more stable now.

    Yes, that's exactly what I mean.
    Tried to reset my SMC, but that didn't solve the problem.
    Hopefully Beta 3 will fix this issue.

    Why is the software side of wifi performance getting worse and worse on these laptops?

    This seemed to help for me. I didn't get disconnected for the few hours last night after the reset. We'll see if that continues through today.

    Yes, throughput is lower, stability is vastly improved.

    Well, my problem was quite different.
    While using the 10.10 DP2, the wireless network stopped working properly. Not just for me, anybody using the same network would complain that it was bad. The top speed I would get was around 20KBps up/down. And when I was using that, nobody else was able to use the network, it simply stopped for everybody else.
    Reseting the SMC solved it for yesterday, but after using bootcamp and coming back to the 10.10, the problem was back. Reseted again, and it seems to be good again. Wondering if there is something on bootcamp screwing my SMC configs...

    Just reporting what happened to me, hope it helps somebody else.

    I having some wifi problems myself. Mostly when the screen turns off on my late 2013 rmbp. When every i log back in it takes a while for the wifi to reconnect. I never really had this problem before.

    Well, the SMC reset seemed to help. Only dropped once, but that still more than Mavericks, which doesn't seem to drop wifi at all.
