    That sometimes means the signal is too weak. Do you have the same problem if you move the Mac closer to the router?

    Are you seriously using WEP encryption on this router, or did you mean WPA/WPA2?  If not, is there a reason you keep using WEP? I have seen several reports of problems of OS X 10.9 with the older, insecure WEP encryption protocol.
