Users Still Reporting Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues After OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 Update

Posted by · 7734 views · Translate
Apple released OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 yesterday, which brought improvements to Wi-Fi reliability and more; however, some users across the web are still reporting issues with Wi-Fi connectivity.

Users on Apple's support forums are still reporting Wi-Fi reliability issues (slow speeds, connection drops, etc) after updating to 10.10.1. The largest thread concerning Wi-Fi connectivity issues on Yosemite exceeded 1,10 message and 208,000 views.

We've got business-grade routers and [access points] at my school, and we've got numerous people unable to connect for longer than a minute before and after [updating] to 10.10.1, wrote a user identified as samabenie Monday morning.

10.10.01 does NOT fix the Wi-Fi issues, alleged MortenJamesCarlsen, also today. I had to go thru the same extreme routines I have had to go thru the past 2 months to be able to connect to the Internet. This is not a very good sign [and] indicates that no one has been able to reproduce a clear-cut scenario in which this happens. So we are back to square one....


Has 10.10.1 improved Wi-Fi reliability for you, or are you still experiencing connectivity issues? Let us know in the comments!

I had no trouble with wifi before that update, now it can't see the network, or if it sees, it does not connect! Can anyone tell me how do I uninstall this update?

after upgrade, no sign of improvement, the wifi still slow and sometime need to wait a couple of minute to get it stable after you return from sleep mode.... Not so good for 10.10.1. I m using wifi with AirPort Extreme.

Slightly off the subject but in September 2014 I upgraded my iPhone 4s to iOS 8.0 and my wifi stopped working. I was told by Apple at the store that my wifi chip had overheated and it would cost $200 to repair it; I didn't repair it. I upgraded to iOS 8.1.1 November 17, 2014 and my wifi now works again. So much for the wifi chip problem. I am now also using OSX 10.1.1 on a 2009 Mac Pro which exhibits an unstable cursor about 25% of the time. With Apples rapid SW development cycle and their drive to merge iOS and OSX it seems that their SW QA has significantly degraded.

Let me get this right. 1,010 have reported a problem out of how many MILLIONS of upgrades? My question is why is supposedly REPUTABLE agencies like Computer World and Clarified buying into this "HYPE?" If 10,000 were reporting a problem then "maybe" there IS a problem. If 100,000 were reporting a problem then there IS a problem. Do the MATH people. If less then 1% of upgrades experience a problem it is NOT the upgrade nor the OS.
