“Perhaps one of the more ubiquitous problems that OS X users encounter is a periodic inability to maintain a steady Wi-Fi connection,” Topher Kessler reports for MacIssues.
“While for many people Wi-Fi is relatively stable, for others there may be times (sometimes quite frequent), where the connection will drop, give an error, and otherwise refuse to join,” Kessler reports. “There are many reasons why Wi-Fi connections may do this, including everything from electromagnetic interference to faulty configurations, so troubleshooting it may be daunting.”
Kessler reports, “However, if you find yourself running into this issue regularly, then there are a few quick fixes that should get you up and running again.”

Whatever, Wi-Fi issues are vexing and sometimes difficult to troubleshoot.
