I'm using a MacBOok Pro, Mac 10.9.5. It happens frequently that when I wake my Mac from hibernation or simply reboot, my home network is not automatically selected in the "Network" section in my System Preferences. When I open the "Network Name:" drop down menu, I don't see it in there either. However, if I click the "Turn Wi-Fi Off" and "Turn Wi-Fi On" one or multiple times, it does eventually appear and eitehr it gets automatically selected or I can select it myself.
My question is, how I can always get it to appear in my network list (assuming I am at home and my router is turned on)? Note I am always within 15 feet of my router (LinkSys E900).
