How to fix Macbook Air Wi-Fi issues

Although we’ve never had any major problem with our Apple equipment it has become apparent that one of our Macs, Macbook Air, started misbehaving after the upgrade to Mavericks.

It was losing Internet connection although the Wi-Fi indicator was fine or couldn’t connect to WI-Fi at all after it’s been put to sleep and then woken up. Sometimes we had to disable Wi-Fi altogether and re-enable it to be able to connect to the Internet. A mini nightmare.

Then we’ve read that it may have to do with some sort of a setting clash between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi so here’s a simple fix that worked for us:

  1. Disable Bluetooth.
  2. Open Finder.
  3. In Finder menu go to: Go > Computer > Macintosh HD > Library > Preferences
  4. Delete the file called com.apple.Bluetooth.plist
  5. Reboot your Mac.
  6. Disco!

Since we’ve done that our unruly Mac works without any Wi-Fi issues.
