I've bought a 15" MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013 and so far everything works perfectly. Luckily I'm not experiencing the "Lose Wifi after sleep" issue.

That said, I only rarely connect to high-bandwidth WiFis. I'm currently working with a colleague from his home office. He has a Netgear router capable of 802.11n and his MacBook Pro (also Retina, but not late 2013, so he doesn't have the ac card) connects using 802.11n and 2.4GHz on channel 1 without a problem. My MBP however connects on the same channel using only 802.11g which is pretty slow when we want to transfer files.

The WirelessDiagnostics report shows I connected to a 5GHz 802.11n yesterday when we were at the client's office.

What can I do to fix or at least diagnose the problem? Is it just Mavericks, or a driver issue with these new ac cards?

It's happening the same to me. Look this thread: discussions.apple.com/message/25890922#25890922 –  naiad May 25 '14 at 10:38
Yeah I think it's a driver issue, because it can connect to some 802.11n networks. Haven't measured Ethernet yet, but it seemed fine when I copied some stuff. –  Marius Soutier May 25 '14 at 10:43
