The Usual Causes for MacBook Pro Disconnection Issues

If your MacBook Pro keeps disconnecting from Wi-Fi, there isn't a single cause for this. Whether it's a MacBook Pro or the latest one, here are the major causes why this would happen:

  • a software-related issue within macOS - settings, connectivity glitches, etc.
  • a problem with the router / Wi-Fi hotspot
  • network infrastructure issues with the ISP

Regardless of the cause, below are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this disconnect problem.

6 Easy-to-Follow Steps to Prevent MacBook Pro Wi-Fi Disconnection Problems

Here is what you can try to solve your iPhone Wi-Fi connectivity issues on your MacBook Pro:

  1. Use a wired Ethernet connection instead. Boom - problem solved! Of course, if this is possible.
  2. Use your MacBook Pro within range of the Wi-Fi network you're connecting to. If the wireless router is at the other end of the house, get closer to it. Of get some Wi-Fi repeaters or use your PC as a repeater.
  3. Diagnose Wi-Fi connection problems. Open wireless diagnostics from the Wi-Fi status menu and run them. Check out the recommendations at the end.
  4. Try using Apple's recommended settings for configuring your router. Also, make sure your router runs the latest available firmware - check the manufacturer's website.
  5. Restart your MacBook Pro and the Wi-Fi router. This will refresh the connection, etc.
  6. Reduce wireless interference. Avoid having sources of interference near your wireless devices - power cables, microwave ovens, cordless phones, etc.

Stepping back, continuous connectivity is the goal you're trying to achieve when looking for fixes if your MacBook Pro keeps disconnecting from Wi-Fi problems. In order to avoid that, you need a solution that can use all your available connections on your MacBook Pro at the same time - a channel bonding service like Speedify.

Speedify Will Help Your MacBook Pro to Stay Online

Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that gets you a fast and secure Internet connection on your MacBook Pro. It achieves this with channel bonding technology that uses your MacBook Pro's Wi-Fi, wired Ethernet and any USB cellular dongles you have connected at the same time instead of switching between them.

What you get is increased bandwidth, which allows all of your apps to run faster. Speedify runs in the background of your MacBook Pro proactively monitoring the quality of your connections. We equip Speedify with auto failover so if your MacBook Pro keeps disconnecting from Wi-Fi; it routes all the data through the wired Ethernet and the cellular connection (if available) until the Wi-Fi connection is restored. Speedify automates all of this activity. You don’t have to do anything, and you most likely won’t even notice anything different is happening.

As a VPN, Speedify provides advanced encryption, without forcing you to sacrifice speed or reliability. Speedify works on all macOS devices starting with macOS 10.12 and later. This includes all Intel and ARM based Mac computers (such as those with the new M1 processor) including Macbook, Macbook Air, and MacBook Pro, iMac and iMac Pro, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro.
