airport reception

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I ve got the airport base station and card on my 15" iMac running quite well in 10.1.5

I have installed 10.2 last week, over the week I find sth strange about it:

1) sometimes reception indicator shows 2 out of 4 in the airport status, but there was no connection to the internet, i.e. couldn't load anything at all;

2) when i click the airport status on the menu bar, two different pull down menu may appear, the old one with 10.1.5, or the new one (may be an upgrade with 10.2) which got option to show connection time, the problem is, sometimes the old one and sometimes the new one,

3) when i click 'open internet connection' in the pull down menu (both the old and new ones), the menu bar turns to internet connection, but the window does not pop out, I have to go the 'File' and click 'new connection window'.

1) may be interference ; 2) I couldnt figure it out; 3) feature of 10.2?

any ideas?

i dont know how to post pic here, otherwise could post the screen captured to show 2) above

    my reception is pretty good, but when i do get to a place where i'm down to 2 bars i get a similiar/same problem...

    It shoes a connection, and 2 bars, but when i try to load something from the internet it seems to hang.... i'm too impatient to wait more than about 30 seconds, but as soon as i get a better signal (3 bars or better), I'm back to instantaneous downloads.

    I do get the impression though, that the page would never load at the 2 bar signal strength...

    Sounds like you should have opted for a clean install of 10.2 to me

    That's unusual. If anything, I've noticed FASTER downloads with Jaguar and AirPort. I mean 300k/sec wirelessly from my goddammned patio. :eek: <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />
