Question

Network connection restarts every 15min

by hisfar / November 20, 2014 10:44 AM PST

Hi,
My MacBook Pro has a very annoying network problem. The Wifi gateway restarts exactly every 15 mins if my MacBook pro is connected to the wireless router ( through WLAN or LAN). The network works fine for my other 4 devices with no issues while the Macbook pro is not connected. Once the laptop connects, the AP restarts every 15 min and the network connections of all devices (including the MacBook) drop. The problem does not occur when i boot into the safe mode. The problem has appeared after Maverick upgrade, and still exists after upgrading to Yosemite.

Details:
1- Macbook Pro 13" early 2011
2- Current OS: Mac OSx Yosemite 10.10
3- 5 Devices are connected to DLink DIR-605L, which is configured as "Wireless Routing".
4- I have reset the wireless router, but it did not solve the problem.


Any help?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,

Tell the MBP to "Forget" all the networks that it is storing.

Once done, rejoin your home network and see if the problem persists.

Hi,

Try creating a new Network Location.

-> Under Network Preferences
-> Click drop-down for Location
-> Create a new location..

That's it!

If it doesn't work , do a clean install of Yosemite and try this steps again..!!!

If the OP has not responded since first posting,

In reply to: Create a new network

then it's probably not worth spending time and posting to the thread.

It's unlikely that the OP will be back.
