It happens regardless of what network I'm connected to. Every hour or so, the internet connection will just load forever. Nothing else changes as far as I can tell, the wifi menu still says "connected" and "internet reachable" but webpages will not load. Reconnecting to the network / turning wifi off and on will always fix it. Early 2015 13" MacBook Pro Retina.

  • When your mac is taking forever to load pages, have you looked in the network preferences? It will give the current status of the connection. Connected or self-assigned ip or disconnected. What version of OS X are you running? – www139 Oct 9 '15 at 0:11
  • Just to check if this is a connectivity problem or just Safari or other browser, make a ping to google.com ( and register the milliseconds it takes, then, when the internet gets slow again, make another ping, register it and update the ping results to your question. – Tiago Ferreira Apr 17 '16 at 11:05
