I bought my mac in india recently and i'm using it in UK. It worked fine for a month but now, whenever i try to connect to the wifi, it says "connection timeout". There is no problem with the wifi because my family doesn't face any such problems on their laptops. I tried refreshing network preferences but didn't work. What do i have to do to make it connect?

  • Can you describe in more detail what your current wireless network topology consists of? (i.e. What type of wireless router are you trying to connect to?, etc..) – Mort Aug 28 '13 at 16:36

  • I don't think that article has anything to do with the problem. As it describes constant dropouts, not connection timeouts which are different. – Digitalchild Aug 28 '13 at 21:17

Connection timeouts can be related to authentication issues sometimes. I recently answered a similar question regarding wifi problems that describes how to remove the network and password details.


I would suggest trying this to see if it is an authentication problem.
