How should I troubleshoot my Macbook Pro losing its connection to the internet
Posted on 2014-10-16
I'm having issues with my laptop staying connected to the internet.
I have a Macbook Air Running OSX 10.9.5
For some reason, Every 5 minutes or so, I'll lose connection to the internet.
I've tried shutting down all programs to test to see if something I'm running is causing it, but I still get disconnected.
I've been running a ping to: Google.com, 22.214.171.124, and 127.0.0.1
Both the pings from Google.com and 126.96.36.199 go down for about 5-10 seconds, then come back up, but the 127.0.0.1 pings consistently without interruption.
This happens to me when at home on my home wireless network and at the office.
Interestingly, when I'm at home, I get disconnected, but I have to turn off and back on my Mac's wifi in order to reconnect.
At the office, the connection resumes after about 5 - 10 seconds.
I'm not sure how else to troubleshoot this.
Any tips guys?
