Hello all,

 

I have a TL-WDN4800 b TP-Link, which worked fine under Mountain Lion, but drops connection randomly under Mavericks. No errors appear in Console, and the WiFi indicator in the status bar still shows that I am connected, but I can't access websites or even the router's admin screen.  If I turn off Wifi and re-enable it it will work fine again for an undetermined amount of time.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

I have the same card and it used to behave well with my Gygabyte H77/Core i5 rig. I moved a couple of days ago to an ASUS Z97 Gryphon/Core i7 and since then, I have the a similar issue: constant disconnections even as the connection is still reported as active in the menu bar. Have someone ever solved this issue?

 

All the best!

The disconnections stopped by themselves. Simple as that. I'll never know what changed, perhaps, but just in case, I'll keep your suggestion in mind. Thank you!

 

All the best.
