How-to Fix OS X 10.9 Mavericks - Wi-Fi Issue

by aguenther1 / April 16, 2014 6:45 PM PDT

my MacBook doesn't login to my wlan-network automatically anymore.
It takes minutes until the list of nearby networks and the message "No known network available" appears, despite the fact that my network is listed. When i click on it, I am connected. How can I reset wlan settings, so that I am connected automatically as it should be?

you could try this
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / April 16, 2014 9:51 PM PDT

In System Preferences > Network > WiFi > Advanced, delete all references to your wireless network.
Make sure there is a check mark in the "Remember Networks...." box.
Now join you network again and, with a bit of luck, your MB will remember the network.

It can really chafe some that

It can really chafe some that the router can be an issue here. That is, I won't discuss this at length but only share that we send out the tech with a common router to try it on another router. The owner sometimes will balk and claim it's an OS issue but here we are showing the other router is working great. Sometimes resetting the router to defaults and simple settings fixes it but in my experience it hasn't been the OS but routers and sometimes an antivirus the owner installed.

Having multiple items in that area is a bit odd. In other words, remember the advice above and keep it clean with only what you need.
